It's so nice to meet you
I value the power of photographs a lot since a very young age. I moved to New Zealand by myself when I was 15, I used to take photos of heaps of random things on the DSLR my dad gave me for year11 photography class. Photos of a very steep street that leads you to the beach, colourful flowers from the neighbour’s garden, how low the clouds are in New Zealand, these fat seagulls fighting for bread, first time hanging out at the mission bay, the giant fountain, fish n chips… And I’d show all these little moments with my family and friends and posted them everywhere on my blogs. I wanted to share these little moments that have touched my heart so my loved ones can experience these things and feel these feelings with me in a way. Photos are for sharing.
However, I also remember the awkward moments when I used to get my school photos taken and drivers’ license photos right before taking the restricted test, oh god, it was the worst, probably one of the most intimidating experience I had in my teenage years. I guess you might share similar experiences with me, growing up, getting professional photos taken has always been this unnatural, uncomfortable thing that we wouldn’t want to do unless we had to.
Then I came to an realisation that there are two types of photographs in general. The type of photographs that only shows and the type that carries. And I want to take the kinda photos that carry.
Here is a little about me
Heya, I'm Alena.
