Primo Studio

I shot this video this summer, but I've finished working on it only few weeks ago. The reason is not enough time! But I really enjoyed the process of shooting, making a video, collaborating with people. I love this atelier, may be because I know the owner, Ainur, and she is so stylish and nice! We met in Florence where me and she were studying in different schools, but with the same passion for our art works. And even there we got an opportunity to have some projects together, and I still have some material from that time I have to work on. Love that time and our works together, and happy to meet the same people again with interesting views on life, like me, haha :P 

Деревянный домик

Этим летом на какие-то из праздников наши друзья сняли деревянный домик на Боровом. Мы подъехали на день позже и я не ожидала увидеть такое милое место :) Конечно не на берегу, но все же было интересно и главное сам домик был уютный, чистый и ощущалось, что ты выехал за город наконец-таки!

Когда-то в будущем хотелось бы иметь маленький, уютный домик у тихого озера. Наблюдать за красотой у беседки, и покачиваясь на скамейке, читать любимую книгу.. Ценю такие моменты все больше, может взрослеем :)

Saryarka Velodrom and Astana Arena

May be you know that I'm from Almaty, the ex-capital of Kazakhstan, but now i live in Astana, current capital of Kazakhstan. If you search on google you will find that Astana became a capital in 1998, and it was really small. During last 15 years the city grew up sooo much. You will never believe that it had totally different look even 5-10 years ago! Also the population of the new capital grew up to 800 000 people (before it was small city, where people more or less knew each other), so I would say it's really crazy and the unbelievable dreams can come true. Now the prices for apartment, food etc. is one of the highest in the country. There are so many new buildings with interesting unique architectures, designs, and some of those are the biggest in the world. I don't know do I like it or no, but I know that it's incredible to build a city like that in short period and also keeping it developing and making from it a center of the main distance for young people. Young city with young people, next generation. Sounds great! 

So once I went out to take a picture of one building, only one. You know why, the point is they started building new sport centers among old small houses. And that looks amazing to me. It's not bad or sad or something, it's just interesting to me to capture that place. I took some shots of another sport center too, only because it's next to that one i came for. 

The region of Astana is a steepe, so mostly you can't find too much greens, but now the city is changing, so there are a lot of small trees which in some years will be surrounding the city. That's nice!

This one called Saryarka Velodrom is an indoor cycle-racing track or velodrome, with 58,000 metre square surface area containing sports courts, a fitness centre, swimming pool, basketball court, ice rink, as well as conference halls, a restaurant and a hotel. I got some few shots from another side:

And this one below is called "Астана Арена" is the biggest football stadium in the country, was build in 2009 and holds 30 000 seats! But my focus is surroundings of the stadium:

the same shot, just couldn't choose:

portraits of Florence

I had this project in Florence at Classic Photography class. I did like Classic Photography a lot, even I was dreaming about getting film medium format camera and shooting only on film. Actually I still want to do it, and definitely I will in the future. But by now there are always a lot of factors making me be more practical and fast, and I can reach it only by using digital camera.

Anyway, I found my old pictures I shoot on Zenit (the old film camera of my father). Here are portraits of people on the streets of Florence. 

Путешествие в поезде

На праздники мы ездили в Алматы, где у меня было пару проектов. Там как всегда тепло и уютно, и к концу праздников мы вернулись в Астану, где тоже потеплело (примерно до 0 градусов). Все же разница большая между этими городами, и в погодных условиях, и в самих людях. Но главное - это найти себя, тут или там, ведь не место делает вас тем кто вы есть, а вы сами. 

Путешествие в поезде имеет какой-то свой шарм, в особенности если в вашем купе с вами едет хорошая компания ваших друзей. 

Езда верхом

Сегодня погода была такой солнечной и теплой, что мы решили пойти покататься верхом. Это был мой "второй раз" и уже уверена что не последний :) Всегда приятно побыть немного ближе к природе..

Сначала мне попался конь, который оказывается выиграл какие-то последние скачки. Он был совсем не спокойным, и все время хотел ускакать куда-то. Мне его поменяли, т.к. я хотела покататься сама (т.е. без инструктора, который водил его за узды по кругу). И дали мне другого, который шел сам по себе, и вообще ни в какую не хотел сворачивать с намеченного маршрута. Отличный конь! Вот так мы с ним и повесилились, делая одни и те же нескончаемые круги. Если вдруг он что-то увидит, он останавливался чтобы "попробовать", и потом я его гладила и просила идти дальше. Как ни странно он шел! В общем мне понравился второй :)
