GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

It is comfortable to live inside our little bubble, a place where we feel safe and at ease. We enjoy the security and are okay with how everything is. We avoid anything that will shaken up that peaceful world we live in. When facing challenges and opportunities, we hold back, play safe, limit ourselves and our unrevealed potential just because it’s new and frightening. We slowly start loosing ourselves in that comfort zone and become  ...

6 TIPS ON STAYING INSPIRED

”You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” -Jack London   What does it mean, to be inspired? I would say it’s not so much about understanding it, but rather feeling it inside of you. If you notices some of the following symptoms like joy, calmness, being in flow with everything that’s happening, strong waves of creativity, you have been inspired. At least that is how I would  ...

FOTOSOFIA EFFECT (12)

  While I was editing these photos I just couldn’t help myself but to feel happy and sad at the same time. Being a part of Fotosofia 12 team really changed me, not only as a photographer, but as a person. When we arrived at Terme Tuhelj and met each other, none of us would have tought about the fact that we’re gonna become such close friends for only a week. As the days pass, I still find it hard to believe that it’s  ...

WE LOVE SOUND

Last weekend I worked at We Love Sound Open Air music festival and I’m still under the overall impression. The event lasted from Friday night (2.6.) until Sunday morning (4.6.) and even though I slept only 5 hours the entire weekend, I was still moving and dancing as I clicked away, capturing the vibrant magic you could feel all over the place. And how couldn’t I, since there were so many brilliant, world known musicians that  ...

LIFE ON FILM

For my 22. birthday, my dad’s uncle gave me his old Canon, a present from the Japanese people after his field work there. I must admit I never shot with an analog camera before, not like this one at least, the disposable ones only, so this was pretty amazing. Sadly the film rewind button didn’t work and as soon as Filip and I figured out how to fix it, we cleaned up the filter and noticed a huge splash over the filter  ...

MEMORY LANE

This weekend I visited Osijek to see my dear Victorija from the blog Blue Turpentine. It’s been a year and a few weeks since V. and I met, but I feel like we’ve known each other for years. She was the person who held my hand while I was still a newbie blogger. She encouraged me to open up a Facebook page for my blog, contact some brands at the beginning and who shared everything she knew with me to help me out, selflessly. For  ...

FEELING GOOD

It’s all about feeling good, being good to yourself and others around you and ”doing good” every day so it becomes an actual lifestyle. When I say feeling good I don’t mean be hyper happy all the time because that’s not humanly possible. We would burn out like matches. Feeling good is a calm feeling for me, it’s an inner joy which flows through you and everything you do. It’s something you can feel  ...

LIFE IMITATES ART

This Monday, Maja and I decided to meet half way from the places we live, pack a ton of outfits, our cameras and spend the day shooting and hanging out just like we did during summer. I think we repeated to each other a million times how stupid we are for not doing this trip earlier. Maja was one of the original five called ”Chasers of the Light” and you can find some of our summer photos here. 🙂 I really love working with her,  ...

MORNING PLAYLIST

Happy Easter Sunday lovers 🙂   I had to digg around a bit to find some new tunes and I’m really excited to share them with you. These are my favorite 7 I listen to lately, mostly in the morning when I’m drinking my coffee and relaxing for the weekend or when I’m getting ready for college and on the bus on my way there. Spring arrived and since I’m a morning person, I have to admit that I just love those morning rides  ...

NECESSITY OF CREATING

I’ve always felt that need for expressing myself. And when I was a kid I didn’t know the reason why. I would tell people it’s simply because I love creating and expressing and making things. For the process and product itself. For the ”art” itself. Wasn’t until I started photographing full-time did I realize it’s not just pure ”I love to”. It’s because I feel too much, to opposed,  ...
