«Do you fall in love often?
Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all» Jeanette Winterson

most interesting 2010

I am amateur. I love simple everyday type shots, bokeh, fix lenses and Flickr. Also I heart film shots, but I am beginner at this :-)

In 2006 I joined and uploaded my first photos. I couldn't even imagine then that photography and Flickr would mean so much to me, and that I would find friends here, and not only virtual ones.

Having come on the site with a usual compact camera Sony, I could only dream about a DSLR and a set of lenses with the magic of bokeh. I also could not imagine that all my thoughts in 3 years would be directed to film and vintage cameras. (Ah, I so want a medium format camera:-)).

I often get asked about my equipment and colouring. I specially add tags for interested in it. Always. And of course I use Adobe programms.

Sorry my english is not good

Увлечение фотографией началось после операции на восстановлениея зрения. «Глаза открылись» :-) После того как нашла в сети страничку Felinda (Ольга Шелего), поняла что влюбилась окончательно… Зацепила композиция, ритм, колористика, формы в кажущихся обычных снимках. Все то что, мне так нравилось искать и находить, когда училась на худ-графе.

Меня часто спрашивают чем снимаю, какой объектив, какая пленка, что да как. Это не тайна за семью печатями, я специально для интересующихся проставляю тэги о технике. Вначале мне тоже было важно на какую камеру сняли понравившейся снимок, какая выдержка и т.д. Поэтому все прописываю. Сейчас технические характеристики былой сакральный смысл потеряли.

А вообще... память у меня плохая, вот и фотографирую... ♪ ^_^ Добро пожаловать на мое фотокладбище!

ВНИМАНИЕ! Данная страничка содержит фотографии банального содержания, включая фото с кошками и цветочками, без высоко концептуальных идей и глубоких психологических портретов. До сих пор нахожусь в цветочно-пейзажном периоде, что меня сооовсем не расстраивает. И кто не любит кошек, ко мне на страничку лучше не заглядывать, а то там кОшКИ :-))

    "I met vi4kin on Flickr - she was one of the first persons I added as "friend" :) The first thing I was impressed with - her kind openness and wonderful friendly nature. Another thing which impresses me constantly - her constant aspiration to grow as a photographer. She's constantly learning - and sharing with others too - we all love her shortcuts for photography articles :)
    vi4kin has a wonderful taste and great feeling for beautiful images, which is absolutely free from being trivial or plain. Even her favorite subjects "cats and flowers" as she says herself with a smile are full of style and artistic merit. She is a true artist both by nature and background and I always value her opinion.

    "She is an amazing photographer who will continue to awe you with her images. Simple yet deep and meaningful, they evoke a wide range of emotions, and are always a sight to behold. You can never tell what she will come up with next."

    "In the few months that Vika has been posting to flickr, she has attracted a following of loyal flickr friends. And deservedly so. Whether it's a portrait of a friend, a scene of wild cats on the street, or even a broken guitar, Vika can transform the ordinary to something special. She has a great eye for the inner art of seemingly everything she sees, and through her camera, makes that beauty visible to all of us. It's always exciting to wonder what she'll post next, and a joy to see the results."
