Autumn is my favorite season. Everything turns bright and colorful; every leaf and tiny pumpkin is just asking to be a part of a still-life story. And when it gets closer to Halloween, those stories turn into spooky tales: slightly eerie, but really fun to tell.
The best part of winter is the hot drinks. Raspberry jam tea, lattes with whipped cream, hot cocoa and marshmallows—all this sweet stuff not only tastes fantastic, but is perfect for photos—especially if you add a little levitation spell!
Here’s how to create a hot cocoa still life with a touch of magic.
Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE.

I'm still nervous about my English, so this beta-version of a webinar is coming without donations and other stuff like that. Just you, me and many ways to be inspired at 9 o'clock every morning. Also, if you want me to cover some specific question on this subject, let me know in the comments!
Over a year ago, we connected through Instagram and followed each others work and decided we wanted to do a project together that would fuse paper craft and illustration work by Annemarieke and Dina's photography. We came up with an idea together, worked on a concept and little details and made two slightly different versions of the same floating island with a treehouse, sails, pirate clothes, hammocks and of course a treasure-chest!
Day Version made by Annemarieke looks like a treehouse for Peter Pan, here Neverland is real, magic does exist and Paper-Art can bring back Lost Boys and Girls. Night Version made by Dina inspired by slightly darker magic of „Windmill, windmill for the land. Turn forever hand in hand“.
To see our results next to each other is so interesting, as they are the same yet completely different! This collaboration has been such a wonderful journey with lots of creative desision making with pushing and pulling from both ends, that the result is something really organic and diverse that we could not have planned or hoped for.
I hope you guys enjoy the outcome as much as we enjoyed the process!

Usually I say something like “Oh, just look around! There are so many interesting things! From cookies to raindrops on a window glass.” And it’s still true, but now my main sources of inspiration are various podcasts, which have nothing to do with photography or even still life. It turned out that information from fields unconnected to your profession gives your brain an incentive to look closer at connections between things. So you can listen to a season of Writing Excuses and came up with picture about insomnia. And Freakonomics can make you think of a Newton’s Cradle from cherries. My favourite one is still Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality (written by Eliezer Yudkowsky, read by Eneasz Brodski): I never made a picture directly inspired by it, but it is constantly humming in the back of my mind, pushing me to be productive.

I hope pictures will be pretty much self explanatory. But I'm working on translation! ^__^
Let’s see how we can shoot a dynamic image with falling cups and splashing liquid using only two speedlights and a glue gun
Someone asked me, how I made it. Well, this is a very simple trick. I guess it would work great with photos of sandwiches or burgers with “flying” ingredients, or with stacks of homemade cookies or fruits. Maybe you’ll decide to create a really well-balanced meal with cereals and vegetables.
