I just love what this guy and others like him manage to create using just a camera, different light sources and darkness as their loyal friend. I have also tried this technique but I still have a lot to learn. I hope that some day I will be as good as he is. I strongly believe that photography is art, not technology. Just enjoy :)!
I’ve always been fascinated about the new technologies that are slowly or in some cases rather quickly being integrated into our lives. I believe that there are always 2 sides to each story. From one side it’s great that there are a lot of new technologies that help us every day and offer us experiences that we couldn’t even dream about 10 years ago. But from other perspective it’s quite terrifying to think about what will happen with that true real human experience and human connection in the midst of this technology age. We’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. I really hope that we manage to combine the best parts from both of the worlds.
Here’s one example of technology that you can already buy. And actually these kind of things don’t even have to be outside of your body anymore…
From April 2015 I have been arranging different kind of get-togethers via Meetup community. I created a group called Tallinn Networking and Socializing Meetup where everyone can join. So far I have held 27 Meetups so far and that number will definitely grow.
I first discovered this site when I was visiting the states back in Spring 2015. In California specifically it’s hugely popular and this idea of creating my own Meetup started to form in my head. The idea of this certain group is to bring together different people (from Estonia and also worldwide) who would like to get new friends and just have a good time. There have been different topics and activities throughout the Meetups but the idea has always remained the same. I just love to have conversations with people from all over the world, everyone has their own story, everyone’s special. And I also love to see people coming together, finding new discussion partners and even friends while having fun doing it.
A lot of content will follow regarding my own group and Meetup community in general. But meanwhile go and check it out yourself:)! And of course, you are welcome to join the group!
There are a lot of different online courses sites in the internet. Some more focused on certain topics, some offer a very wide array of things to learn. I have been using Shaw Academy for quite some time now and I would strongly recommend it. Shaw has quite many courses to choose from and they are constantly adding them. They are very much caring for their customers, asking for feedback, offering assistance whenever needed and are just generally very client-orientated. There is an option to choose courses separately or to become a Shaw Academy lifetime member (which I have done). If you have thought at some point that you would like to add something to your field of skills go and check them out!
A couple of years ago I found myself for the first time walking around and taking pictures with a decent DSLR camera. Never before I had any interest in photography as such (besides just taking random photos with my smartphone). But that day something changed and from that point my passion for taking photos has just grown. I have taken several online courses (huge thanks to my lovely girlfriend Anna who made me a gift, my first photography course) since then and finally in the beginning of this year bought myself my personal Canon DSLR camera. I will definitely share my thoughts about this journey that I’ve had in in the world of photography in the future posts but at the moment I’d just like to share my photography Instagram with you. Don’t forget to follow if you like what you see:)!
There are thousands and thousands of books regarding self-improvement and I believe most of them have something good and useful stored inside. I have been reading these kind of books for about 5-6 years now when at one point I discovered that there is still so much I don’t understand about myself and that that finding and building yourself is an extremely interesting journey. I know that I’m on the right path but there’s still a long way to go. In a matter of fact I believe that this journey never ends – every day is a new opportunity to learn something new, to be open to the world.
I would strongly recommend everyone to get this book and properly work it through. As always most likely everything wont be right after your taste but there definitely will be some chapters, topics and ideas that will “click” while you read.
I have made also a short summary of this book (you can find the link below). Sadly it’s in Estonian but there are also some short recaps of this book in English. You’ll definitely find something if you search around.
The best investment is always investment in yourself!
