Hey YOU, let’s get creative TOGETHER! Today I want to start a community-project called ‘17 weeks of creativity’. Yesterday I already collected topics on Instagram. At October 2nd I will announce the first topic! At the end of each week I will post my photo taken specially for the weeks topic and invite all of you to be part of it and to take your photo for the topic as well. I will share my favorite posts on my story on Instagram, on my Facebookpage and on here. Simply include #laurazalenga17weeks in the description of your post so I can find it. . Spread the word. Let’s inspire each other. Let’s have some creative fun together. Let’s make it more about creativity again!
Again and again I notice how I see people through completely different eyes when I photograph them. Even people I have known for years. As soon as I look at their face through my camera I analyse it on a whole different level. It’s crazy how many things like emotions and memories blend into the way we see a person. How we don’t see ‘flaws’ if we like them and how we don’t see beauty if we don’t like them… It’s fascinating how our heart tricks our eyes.
From some weeks ago at the Kochelsee. Doesn’t it look like a nice place?______________ In reality the water was freezing and a guy passing by with his bike stopped and totally started eating popcorn while watching me… :D Sorry for ruining the illusion.
Bright evening with a beautiful moon-rise in Lecce. This was just after I had the last one-on-one shooting of my workshop. I took some minutes to capture the moment of walking back through the fields. It already smelled like summer and I was happy and so tired after that busy day. A moment of just being there and enjoying the moment. Often I hear the click of my camera and just don’t really move for some more minutes and just watch.
