Before and after

I decided to add some before and after photos as I´m learning with Lightroom and Photoshop now. Here is one of the first. :)

From the scratch

A few days ago I got a new laptop. Well, not really new, to be honest, more like reeeeeeally, reeeeeally old, but still working (thanks to my friend and flatmate Tomas) and better than the netbook I had before. And the best thing is - I finally have Photoshop and Lightroom!
I didn´t have Photoshop for years now, I edited photos in Photofiltre (but some people were really surprised, that I did quite good with a editor like that), but it just wasn´t enough and I would like to spend more time editing and maybe later, when I get better, even do it profesionaly. I really love editing photos, but I so used to Photofiltre, that trying to do something in Photoshop is lke starting from scratch. And because I never had Lightroom, it´s litterally starting from scratch. :D
But I´m determined... I can do it.

And I have a great teacher, whos photos and edits I really like, even when he shoots something little bit different (he´s mostly a dog photographer, so if you love dogs and nice photos, go and check his FB page: Mattphoto. Or you can see his portraits and photos of people on instagram @matt_shoots_people ).
I already started slowly editing and trying what Lightroom can do. I know some basics, and now I have to experiment more and look at some tutorials, to learn some tips and tricks.  And the same with Photoshop. As it doesn´t have some of the features I was used to in Photofiltre ( does, but little bit diferent), I have to look up, how to retouch photos the best.

Sorry for the quality, it´s just taken with mobile camera :D

Birthday photoshoot

Yesterday was my birthday... A year older..Again. Oh, how the time flies. And that´s not very good, I don´t want to be oldeeeeer. :´(

But, the birthday was great. A friend of mine - Assay (you can find here on facebook page under Assay of Darkwood) came to my town, so of course we planned a little photohoot together. We already did one some photos time ago and it was great. It was like we knew eachother for years, yet we just met that day.
I somehow feel surprisingly comfortable, shooting with  her, even something maybe little bit provocative.

We decided for two outfits - one more causal with a little bit of punk vibe

And one more in romantic goth tone

And maybe the most time spent was by changing and and tuning out outfits. :D Well, we are girls after all. :D

We shot with Iain. He´s a Briton, who now he lives in Slovakia (his page: [here] ).
First we took a couple of photos on the outside, but because of the cold we soon came back inside, where we changed. He has an amaing flat, so vintage, ideal for steampunk-ish photos. But, there is not too much space, but we can still work with that.
It was really nice and it´s always a great way to force me to speak english and improve.

It was fun and I´m curious about the photos. Maybe I will get some unedited and can edit them myself. Because soon I will finally have Photoshop again and can start to edit photos for real. But I have to train and learn first. :D

After the shoot I bought some kebab, came home and goth the best birthday present - a great long massage. Nothing can top that. ♥

I will be back!

The last try...if this one won´t work out, I will just stay away from blogging for good (well, in english at least, I still have my slovak blog, where I occasionally post stuff). 

I really like blogging, it´s just...the time...the fucking time...there is so little of it!

I still really, really want to.
My Althemy site is great, but it´s more a portfolio with occasional blog post, but this is a blog, where I wanted to post everything, not just modeling or photography related. 


I will find the time. Come on, tomorrow is my birthday, I will be one year older again. It should be time to be more responsible and to stay behind my words.
