the dearest creature is gone...
today i held her for the last time in my arms...
so tiny, so fragile, so consumed by cancer
but in the bestest of spirit!

i cannot contain the pain! its so enormous!
to see her dead... beloved animal... inanimate!

ill trade anything to have you back again!

wow things happen...

bf kinda isnt happy with me anymore, feels restricted, hates to see me everyday...
misses his old "before me"self and pals and doesnt feel like hanging out with me..
sick of my absurd unsuccessful existence...

my dream of being a student of advertising photography in zlin ended up in epic fail.
my thesis is still in the unwritten phase.
my mind is blank...

my heart is gone...
i have to let go what wants to fly away, but this time it might never come back...

my weekly photography assignments have become a "bimonthly" photo assignments the moment i started to be behind on school... now the semester is over so ill just conclude it with the missing assignments, just that you stalkers know:aww:



1. photography 101 (we learn the basics about photography, camera, light, composition etc.)
- students everyday life - photo document (4-5 photos) - i was in a hurry and had no idea how a docu should look like so i made these three:
P101 - docu 1 of 3 by lia-minou P101 - docu 2 of 3 by lia-minou P101 - docu 3 of 3 by lia-minou

- architecture for advertising purposes - pre-chosen town of Bratislava - i plundered my archives and dug one out, reedited and posted:
P101 - architecture of ba by lia-minou

- domestic animal for a postcard - again archive plundering occurred and this was chosen:
pretty by lia-minou P101 - domestic animal by lia-minou

- evaluation - i got an A cause i was awesome;) just as the rest of the class! :aww:




2. photography in advertising (we focus on photographing the subject as a potential product we want to sell.)
- image photography of a new collection of hair elastic(s) for a famous styling and jewelry company - last minute product, i really put it onto the very last minute, and i thought it would be a piece of cake... but it wasnt. especially the execution sux...
PiA - image photography by lia-minou

- provocative photography - add on an hour-man - no man was willing to pose for my awesome provocative ideas, i had to go with an image representing 'incapable lady' trying to repair a bulb(!) who desperately needs to be saved by an hour-man...you know, just in case the photo wouldnt deliver the 'message';)
PiA - hour-man by lia-minou

mind you, i had better ideas - but men again let me down:(

- add for KAMAKO - add for the KAMAKO department of FIFUK that would attract new students - i chose a cliché indeed.:)
PiA - add on KAMAKO by lia-minou

- evaluation - again i got an A cause i was awesome;) just as the rest of the class! :aww:

hope u like it, id love to read your comments;)

thats mostly all for now, im finishing school and slowly growing my portfolio but more on that next time! :aww::wave:

so here are this weeks assignments and how i dealt with them:

1. photography 101 (we learn the basics about photography, camera, light, composition etc.)
- we had to photograph landscape/nature - our favorite spot and capture its atmosphere - i actually damaged a car just to get there ^^; and the place just never has any sky! ah well... :aww:
P101 - landscape by lia-minou

- NEXT: students everyday life - photo document (4-5 photos)

2. photography in advertising (we focus on photographing the subject as a potential product we want to sell.)
          - we were to photograph sport shoes and this picture should have expressed happiness.. :O_o: u feel any happy now??
PiA - happy sneakers I. by lia-minou PiA - happy sneakers II. by lia-minou

- NEXT: image photography of a new collection of hair elastic(s) for a famous styling and jewelry company.. ah well..

weekly photography assignments

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 4, 2010, 1:23 PM


well to overcome my ever-present frustration from the inability to study the advertising photography i thought id share my weekly photo assignments here with you guys.

          *          *          *

so i have these 2 classes at uni:
1. photography 101 (we learn the basics about photography, camera, light, composition etc.)
      - for the 1st class we had to shoot a portrait and capture a trait that truly describes the personality of our subject, and here is what i did:
P101 - mr. H I. by lia-minou P101-julka by lia-minou P101 - mr. H II. by lia-minou

      - for next time we have to photograph landscape/nature - our favorite spot and capture its atmosphere - i need a lift there, can anyone pls take me there? :love:

          *          *          *

2. photography in advertising (we focus on photographing the subject as a potential product we want to sell.)
      - we had to create an informative photography of eggs - no emotions just eggs as they are, present their shape, color, texture etc. (sort of a Billa-food-catalogue picture) here the picture:
PiA - eggs by lia-minou

      - next: we should photograph sports shoes and this picture should express happiness.. :O_o:

          *          *          *

ps: yeah i knew no one would want to do this with me... ah well :meow:

advertising photography in zlin

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 19, 2010, 10:59 AM


*****WARNING!*****
this journal is only about my frustrating bitching around!
so dont expect much!


- in case u clicked here and dont want to read go watch my favorite series intro: click here for teh youtube awesomeness

now back to my story:

well, as i am pretty old now (meaning: i should already have a solid career at this age) im still struggling with my university studies - recently overcoming yet another being-thrown-out-of-school-in-the-last-year situation - studies i just want to finish because of the huge amounts of time and money i have already invested into, i have come to the conclusion that it is fckn* high time to give my life a proper course:

my dream is to become a pro COMMERCIAL/FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER

being the chicken i am (and for the lack of useful contacts), i thought of enrolling into another (!) uni study: the very renowned advertising photography in zlin .
as i really need to work and earn money, i opted for the part-time mode of study and here came the ultimate problem:
one of the requirements is at least 3 yrs work experience in this field
- wtf!!!srsly if i was an advertising photographer already for 3 fckn* yrs i wouldnt need the fckn* school anymore in the first place!!!* - and in case ur slow today: i dont have the praxis and really doubt i can ever get it unless i study for it on a uni...a very sad LOL


im just so pissed right now! everything just sux at this moment! i have no fckn* contacts to at least introduce me into this business, my friends still dont recognize me even as an AMATEUR photographer (yes they dont even believe its a hobby of mine - u should see the surprise in their faces when i mention i want to pursue this as a career!!), and i have no fckn* money to buy equipment that could help me evolve!!
its so frustrating!!!

and as a matter of fact its ALL JUST MY FAULT!
im such a fckn* chicken!! i should be out there brandishing with my stunningly amazing portfolio on the right places and just be awesome. instead im stuck here in front of my pc, wining about how lame i am. pathetic!
somebody should just kick me hard in the ass*...

if u read this far you are my hero!!!seriously!!:heart:
u get a cookie and a question to answer:
how do i become a pro when im so fckn* scared that i dont have the "package" for it???

ill appreciate all constructive thoughts and advises, in case u have any about my sorry excuse of a life, just go ahead and write a comment/message! thanx!:hug:


ps: in case uve ever wondered: yes, i thought life would just give me cookies without any hard trying!;)


*/note: sorry, im watching too much dexter - debs languages really easy to pick up - and hard to get rid of;)

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 24, 2009, 10:53 AM


:eager:i cant let any more time waste away!!:eager:
:ohmygod: im such a fool to have realized it this late!!:stupidme:
been wasting my life away for so long!

i wish i was a little kid again and knowing what i know now, i would be just awesome - genius child!!:blush:

ah well...this is why im :onfire::

i thought that with me not being a miraculous talent, nor having any education in this field and with everyone now grabbing a camera, snapping everything around wishing for the same thing, becoming a professional photographer is just impossible...

i still believe this is true and the competition is just insane, but i have finally decided that more than it makes any sense i just want to be a professional...

so here i am, on the beginning of my shady journey.
so many things to do: building a decent portfolio, getting equipment and more equipment...and so much more!!:faint:

please wish me luck i will really need it!
:fingerscrossed:
