Wild hearts.

 

When Stella and I made a deal she’s coming, I knew I wanted to fit in as much work as I can in those few days. So I started planning, about what I would want her to capture, what I want to show, and where I want her to shoot me. Not that it’s hard to find a good location when you live in such a pretty place as I do, but I wanted the mood to be just right. This quarry was the first place I thought of. I’ve always been a sucker for contrast and so the idea of a feminine white bodysuit with biker boots in a dusty middle of nowhere seemed just perfect. And she managed to capture exactly what I had in mind.

People often perceive me way differently than what I am actually like in “real life” – orย  behind closed doors. Maybe it’s the blonde hair, the fact I look somewhat younger than my age, or that I’m all “pooping rainbows and butterflies” for the most part – but I’m often thought of as a shy, very gentle and calm person. Which, I also can be. And maybe I portray myself that way as well. But, for the shoots with Stella, I have decided right away to make them very “me”, to be open, confident, raw and free hearted, my true self. And I am so content because you can see that in all the photos that I will be showing you on the blog. And because my closest friends noticed just that rawness and freedom right away.

And how amazing is Stella for making me feel as comfortable and relaxed in front of her? That is a sign of a true artist and someone who was born to be a photographer and capture the best in people. Can not believe this was our first shoot ever, and most of these amazing shots happened within 10 minutes. I gotta say, I’m really proud of these. Hope you enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Kad smo se Stella i ja dogovorile da mi dolazi u posjet, znala sam da zelim ugurati sto vise fotkanja i projekta u tih par dana. Pa sam se odmah bacila u planiranje – sto zelim da fotka, sto ja zelim pokazati, lokacije na kojima to zelim odraditi.. Papiri su se odmah poceli puniti idejama..ย  Prvi mi je na pamet pao ovaj kamenolom, na kojem sam se htjela fotkati jos od proljeca kada sam tamo odlazila u setnje sa Rokom. Uvijek sam padala na kontraste, tako da mi se cinilo savrseno pofotkati njezni, bijeli body sa bajkerskim cizmama usred neke prasnjave divljine. I ona je stvarno uspjela zabiljeziti tocno to sto sam ja imala na umu.

Ljudi me obicno dozivljavaju dosta drugacijom od onog kakva ja zapravo jesam, iza zatvorenih vrata. Mozda radi plave kose, cinjenice da izgledam nesto mlada nego sto jesam, a mozda i ja sama ponekad o sebi “naslikam” krivu sliku. Pa tako dosta njih misle da sam neko plaho, mirno, njezno bice – sto ponekad i jesam, ali vecinom ako spavam. ๐Ÿ˜› Za ova fotkanja sa Stellom, htjela sam se pokazati u pravom svijetlu. Biti slobodna, otvorena, nekako sirova i prava “ja”, i srecom, mislim da sam to i uspjela. Mislim da su sve fotke koje cete imati prilike vidjeti nekako bas tocni prikaz mene, mog karaktera. I bilo mi je jako drago kad su moje najblize prijateljice imale upravo taj komentar na sve sto sam im pokazala.

A Stelli mojoj svaka cast sto sam se s njom osjecala toliko ugodno i opusteno, da su se vecina ovih fotki dogodile u prvih 10 minuta fotkanja, i prvog dana naseg upoznavanja “uzivo”.. To je pravi umjetnik i netko tko je roden da bude fotograf, kada – koliko god snimanje bilo osmisljeno unaprijed – nista nije neprirodno ili namjesteno. Jako sam ponosna na ove fotke, i jedva cekam da vidite i ostale! ๐Ÿ™‚
