MiddleStar's Profile Picture
Artist | Photography

My name is Nazariy. I am here to show my work, engage in discussions, get and give help, comments and suggestions to my fellow members.

I have been doing photography since my childhood. Started with a very simple manual film camera and now using digital camera. All I know today about photography is self-taught mainly by experimenting and hours of practice.

My object of capture is everything. I am constantly experimenting.


My Tools of the Trade:
Camera: Sony A100
Lens: Tamron 24-200 - Mir-1V - Industar 50-2 - Helios 44M-4 - Jupiter 9 - Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AI-S
Post-production: Adobe Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS4
Computer system: Eizo 24” – CPU E6600 – 4Gb RAM – 4,5TB HDD - Win 7
I think I stand out a little bit. I never get inspired by other peoples work. Its their own perception of a object, feeling or atmosphere. Not my own. So why would I try to recreate or recapture something through someone else's eyes and interpretations when I can do it by myself.

I can appreciate the work, find it interesting and the technique that is put in the work but it never makes me do something of myself based directly on it, "copy" but in my own way or use someone's work as a reference. I find it very unsatisfying.

What inspires me is a object, feeling or atmosphere. Either based on what I have seen/see at the moment or based on a presumption of it. Many time it comes when Im right there on the spot. I see it and I want to put a emotion, atmosphere, story in the object of capture in the best way I can.

I believe its the raw object, feeling or atmosphere that should be the true inspiration, not someone else's capture of it. In many ways it comes down to the mindset one have. The end result of a work maybe will not differ much from someone who got inspired by someone else's work but its the process that will be very enriching for ones creative soul from my personal experience.

In the end of the day you rely only on your own impressions, intuition, creativity and skill.
