Photographer / Travel

Daria Klepikova

Every time someone tells me how sharp my photos are,
I assume that it isn’t a very interesting photograph.
If it were, they would have more to say.

Pictures only come to life once someone sees them. But in order to create a good photo, is not enough to just happily choose a moment and press a button. Photography is primarily anticipation, and only after then, you can act. For me photography is a unique combination of harmony and beauty. It is a simple action that requires artistic calculation.

Impressions from childhood somehow affects the style of the photographer’s work.

I started my journey with travel photos. With it, I tried to convey the feeling of time and place where I was. But the more confident I felt at the time of the shooting, the more I realized that I need to develop in other genres. I have chosen for themselves the most common and popular among them – portrait.

At first I was afraid. I’m used to having my shooting objects have been fixed, and in itself is already unique, but it is difficult with people.

To understand the basic fundamentals, I started going to classes. There I learned how to work with studio equipment, with light, we gave a good practice in working with models. Retouching I studied independently, long hours at the computer, watching videos, and constant practice.

Now for me while shooting the main task is to communicate with people in a way that they can trust me and feel comfortable in my presence. A good picture is one with which I can convey the true character of a person, not just their looks.

A majority of photographers shoot a family history – birthdays, weddings, holidays. Other nature or sports. And there are those that each image is converted into a work of art, regardless of the topic.
The best way to appreciate a photographer is to look at his work. The photos can tell you everything.
