Golden photo idea

I have just celebrated my own and partner's birthday. It has been a blast even though we managed to avoid piƱatas but sang many wonderful songs. I also got to celebrate birthday of my coach which definitely was also very special to me. And while I have been taking tons of photos both with me and without me, I realized just how much I wanted it to be more organized to be even more special. While I love seeing smiles of my friends and even more of my dear beloved family I do enjoy seeing a good backdrop. In Mexico the most delicious places are often the least spectacular looking ones. The most vivid and happy moments are not staged. Sometimes I kinda wish I could stage it at least a little to treasure the moments a little more. Like instead of seeing a counter with dirty dishes seeing something more appealing. Or instead of couple of balloons and crowds on the beach seeing something cutting the perspective only to make it more... golden. I actually have been thinking of backdrops with are actually a big part of an everyday life of any photographer in studios and during the events (press wall shot is mandatory, guys, or let's think red carpet). Surely regular press wall and screens (including but not limited to green screens) are handy and not very transportable. I mean surely it is doable but definitely not something you can simply just throw in and add to your belongings, if you go to, let's say, paradise island nearby. In fact I recently discovered different type of backdrops. It might take a little more time to set it up (which is actually no problem during the celebrations where you can always find tons of people) it saves a lot in both weight and space to carry. Yes, I am talking about panels for backdrops, the ones you can find (in big numbers to accommodate any desire, mind me) on Here is how it looks and what you need to set it up. It doesn't take that much time but the result will definitely leave you satisfied and happy.

Let's just look at those fine example of backdrops for birthdays. Surely you are not limited to birthdays to make a backdrop, any occasion will do because after all this is just a backdrop and not full decoration (unless you don't want it to be the only decoration for sure). it will last long as you are free to add any accessories and additional element to completely change the whole outlook of the object. Yes, the only limitation is yourself!

I am sure Carmen whose birthday celebration decor we see here was impressed! I love how everything played around the theme of pure and vibrant gold. I have no idea of her age and I do believe she could have celebrated any number with this fancy gold shimmer wall

More gold for Trisha! And while it's the same golden golden decor idea, the arrangement feels completely different! Gorgeous!

I kinda wish we could see more of it but I really enjoyed the addition of rose gold to regular gold shade. That is definitely decor inspiring!

Did you ever try assembling such a wall? Do you like making a special photo op place during birthday or other special occasion celebration? wedding, perhaps?


Have a nice day,

Engagement and birthday news

I Suck when it goes to delivering news. I mean.. I never do it in time. I do always forget about birthdays and such and more over even if keep it my mind sometimes I'm too slow, so everybody think someone reminded me. Why Am I saying that? The answer is simple. I have two awesome news to share and I waited for a too long time to write about it. I'm slow again! In September Max and I decided to get married but kept it secret waiting for January to come. A week ago Max asked my father for hand. So finally I can say it out loud: We are getting married in May That's our hands and the small ring on the finger is the  engagement  ring. Why is not classic? My job. It's ment to be worn constantly but I can barely do it with big stone. The  possibility of cracking the ring into pieces is very close to 1 so we started thinking of other options. The   idea was very easy and came to my-soon-to-be-husband Max: flat with one or couple of stones fixed very well. You may be as

Fairy tale, part 4. Prague

God, I miss that vacation! And here comes the last part of our New Years Trip. Prague! The capital the lovely city. We had so much fun there and are very grateful for what we got there. If fact we had so much fun simply walking around the city, looking for sun or place with now wind,  laughing  on no matter what and eating trndelniks (tasty sugar backed something). The day we shot my outfit was very sunny. Although a bit windy. There is not much to write about Prague - I assure you, you just have to see all with your own eyes. It's my second time in this  marvelous  city and I enjoyed it as my first time. I'm very sorry for huge amount of my outfit shots, but they are so much fun. Karl's (Charles') Bridge  Max is here Cold     Suspicious Portrait In Fact you deserve a prize if got this far through my funny outfit shots. Here comes the Prague  Day and Night for those t

Explore Starcon

I'm going to brake up vacation post series to share the Starcon experience. A week ago I was sitting on the same spot and getting ready to go. We've been to lovely Saint  Petersburgh. We managed to have a charming walk in the  evening even right after the con. Starcon was all about sci-fi and we loved it so much. We even wore the Jedi costumes (wait for them in the end of post). Max, my lovely husband, sewed them for only 3 days (that's why the design is so simple). and I also got 2d place in Star Wars Miniatures board game tournament took place there. I'm so happy! As for outfit - I've chosen a super comfy outfit with a very cool pants! I bought them on ebay and they are more than 20 year old pants (I guess soon they could buy booze on their own but I doubt I need it). I love them for their shape - keeping me cool during hot and warm when needed. Oh, and can I also call it my pijama pants trend pants? or not? What I also wanted to mention you are my fab set jewel
