Wonderful images!
Your blog is great!
Thought it's about time I say hello too.
Hello! :-)

Serban spunea...

Thank you very much, Nadja!
I glad you did it!
Hello! :-)

Nadja spunea...

I'm a little bit shy sometimes.
Especially when I see so much talent.
But once I'm over it: Beware.
:-)

I am less or more the same. I don't want to bother too much the photographers I respect.
But since I'm not a big one, I don't mind to be bothered. :-))))

Nadja spunea...

Modesty, a sign of a great man. :-)
I'm not big either, so,
when you ever need someone to bother...
You are very welcome! X
Besides...
You don't need to be big to be a great photographer! "-)

I guess one of the keys to become a good photographer is to have a true passion for what you are doing, but in the same time to able listen to others, to learn from critiques and in the same time to find your own identity. I'm not very good in putting down my ideas and feelings, but I hope I got my ideas understood. :) And not the last, stay modest and don't do it just for getting popular.
I'll drop a visit and my impressions on your photos too. I've found some of them interesting ;-)

I totally agree with you.
The passion, I got it!
The will, I got it.
Even if it means I have to listen to others. "-)
That's why I do the lessons.
Second year.
(Top student of this year and previous too.)
So, after I know it all,
I can use it. Or not!
As I told my new teacher. :-)
Be popular... well, I am anyway.
With or without the photographs!
"-)
I understand your ideas perfectly!
Thank you very much and
Always welcome!
Good or bad comments too!
I love all:
the good the bad and the ugly!
:-)

What I meant to say by try not to do things just for getting popular, as I see it... sometimes you could start to have success, but in our times, because everything moves so fast, people see something that they like, but immediately they (almost) forget it. I saw some guys, when they get popular, they often start to produce a lot of their work, even if they drop their standards, principles, whatever you want to call them, just for keeping their fans happy and not being forgotten.
But I think is only an illusion, the "fans" appreciate almost everything and you start to think falsely that every of your work is still good. It's not good to fall into this trap. Than you have to go back and "listen to others". Of course you need to find them, they are not only teachers, but also other good photographers, who maybe won't help you directly, but through words they said, work they do. This "listen" was something, that has changed my views in a good manner and start finding a identity. :-) But I am still at start.
Of course, it's not that bad that you become a little popular, you still need to have others see your work. :-D

I think this is really good advice you give me here.
And let me start by thanking you for that, Thank you!
But, I think it's not urgent for me... I mean... succes...
Anyway, I'm not a commercial thinker either.
Circumstances wouldn't allow a real professional career either.
But I don't want that.
With me it's about expressing myself.
And well, just maybe,
prove to myself that I could have been a good professional...
would I have been able to follow my childhood- dream...
before the age of 45! :-))
(I had no experience with photography before I started the school.)
I'm not even prepared to change for my teachers.... too much.
And I think they even respect me for that,
judged by my points that is.
And by seeing that they visit my blog regulary. :-)
But I can totaly understand what you say!
It's a classic story. Sadly enough.
I really wish you a lot of succes in finding your path!
Think, if you can tame those mountains, you will surely have no problem with that! :-))
And judging by your photographs too!
And Yes! I keep my eyes and ears open always to learn more!!!
So, all your advice or any tips tricks or comments
will be always very welcome!
You are a very friendly man!
I appreciate that!
Thank you! I am so happy to have finally met you!
And will study your work even more,
now that I now you are not just a very good photographer
but an intelligent and sensitive man too.
Thanks again! And see, or read better said, you soon, I hope!

Because I don't have right now too much time, I will just add shortly few things: my thoughts regarding success, were related to what I see sometimes around, and it doesn't relate always with commercial, sometimes those artists don't do art they sell, but their art gets a lot of attention because the socialization networks or specific communities.
I saw your work and didn't get me other impression than the one that you mean and wrote above ;-), and I share the same thoughts. Even though what I do gets some attention (this doesn't mean hundreds of people) because of the inherent spectacular landscapes, colors, light, ..., I'm still doing my photography the way I see it and I like. Of course, various influences for sure exist, but I'm doing my own decisions about how my images look.
I didn't follow any photography courses, I don't if that's good or bad, but I plan to attend some day some workshop of one of my favorite photographers.
Hear you later! :-)

Nadja spunea...

You don't need a course!
I will idolise you a bit so that you can practice ignoring that.
Oke? "-)

Serban spunea...

:-) Thanks, I guess!
OK! :))

Nadja spunea...

You can take it as a compliment, yes.
And...
Don't think I didn't notice
the ;-) you typed here and there.
I will ask and give you the chance for justification for that later....
