So you guys, yesterday I attended a photography workshop with and by Felix Rachor. Maybe someone knows him? He's quite successful with what he does so I thought it might be a good idea. Was gone the whole day and most of the evening, skipped Flash, learned quite a lot. Mostly about myself. We had a (I guess) semi-pofessional model the whole day and she was up for everything :D (Felix even painted her with acryllic colour) Although she didn't quite follow the orders we gave her >.>
Anyways, it was fun and I got some new inspiration (and photographs of course), which is always good. And I learned how to do some nice face postprocessing and retouching. I'm gonna use Bridge from now on ... and RAW o_O"

Theme of the workshop was Vogue Style fahion photography... or something like it.
Some results can be seen here: (PS. Please be gentle, I did this in the middle of the night... don't expect anything over the top. Gonna go over these soon)

Sadness overwhelmed me once again. Without a reason, without any chance to avoid it. It just made its way into my body and filled me up. And there I was, utterly sad and uncomfortable. Of course he was there and I was glad to have him around, but he couldn't understand...
Kept asking and asking without ever getting any answers. It made him sad too. By now the whole room was filled with sadness and confusion. Was it because of the room? Can rooms evoke such pain? At least it would be an explanation to all the ocurencies of that kind. It's been a lot lately...
And caught within this room of sadness he saw no other way but to escape. He asked me if I wanted him to leave.. of course I didn't. But I didn't want him to stay and ask more questions either. Torn between my feelings I began to cry- again without an explainable reason. It confused him even more. And the both of us saw no way out of this dilemma... We never even solved this problem.

So why does life have to be this complicated? I wished I could stop my head from having any thoughts, even just for a moment. I wished I could be someone else-

Can't anybody please rip my head off!?

Strange thoughts occur to me . . .

Swedish God

Haha what an unusual title today *haha*

Had a very nice shoot with Ras today whom I met at Kenjutsu some time ago. He promised to attend training more often but for he works in Africa his time managnement is always in a mess. But today we finally made it and it was a blast. I'm not sure I ever had that much fun during a shoot. We were laughing and giggeling all the time and although he said that he didn't like cameras and standing in front of it he did a great job. Couldn't believe he didn't feel comfortable with himself...
Anyways I think the photos that came out are probably the best ones I ever took. I'm amazed by myself, even if it's not very polite to praise oneself. :3
And Ras is by far the most handsome guy I ever met. Can't wait to shoot him again. He's also doing his own swordfight style and parcours, so I guess we'll be having quite a lot of other opportunities to shoot. :D

Here's some of my favourite photographs:

So what else...
When I was on the train yesterday heading home for Berlin I sat with three weird dressed guys. They looked a little like they were playing rugby or stuff like that. But they kept talking about strange things like chains and only 100 stones per game etc. And I wondered and wondered what they were talking about until some guy passed us and asked them about their crazy sport which turned out to be Jugger. Ever heard of that? If not go google it... sounds very cool. Well we happened to start a conversation that would last until the end of our train ride. ;) And I also found a model for our photography project of this semester. A bald man. He's quite charming as well and I think he'll be a good model. Well, we'll see how this one turnes out I guess.

And now that I spent the whole evening photoshopping I need to do some uni tasks that waited for me way too long and need to be accomplished by tomorrow or at least this week. >.>
So I'll be working now...
