Another Friday means another interview with one of our long-term users. This time we’re talking to Kasia Serbin.
With the current streak of over 120 days, Kasia is one of our most active users. Her photos have this unique, professional look. How does she feel about her 365 project? What has changed in her workflow. Keep reading for all the answers.
Why did you start your 365 project?
While running my photography blog I decided to share my work with a broader audience. Share it on a site with a bit different rules that most online galleries. This lets me improve every day, not only when I have an opportunity. It also helps to develop a habit of everyday activity.
Besides that, I really like that tookapic is being made in Poland, even though it’s entirely written in english.
What camera you use and why?
I use Canon EOS 6D. I was always a Canon user. I recently switched from an old 50D to 6D. This was quite big of en expense but totally worth it. The quality to price ratio of 6D is very good. And the new 35mm Sigma I got makes the surrounding world even more beautiful.
What was the biggest challenge within those 100 days?
There is no doubt that taking daily photos becomes a habit eventually. But the hard part is not to let it become a routine. Sometimes you start to think about the photo in the morning, but end up struggling to shoot anything decent at 11:30 pm.
I guess you could say that consistency is also a challenge. Once you accepted it, you need to find time for one more thing among all the everyday duties.
How did you feel while uploading your 100th photo?
Happiness and relief. I made it. But also the fact that I really enjoyed most of those 100 photos.
What has changed in your photography within these 100 days?
I focus around better and more interesting frames. I try to improve my retouching. Good photos don’t take themselves. You need to think and care about the smallest details in your frame.
What do you want to achieve by completing 365 project?
365 day streak, obviously.
Which photo do you like most?
I don’t have any favourites. But I like the minimal ones. The ones that focus on a beauty of a single object. Photo 23 or 31, in which the old camera looks like brand new. I really hope that the best pic is still to be taken.
Do you have any advice for our new users?
Don’t ever put your camera down. Because there’s a “pic” hiding everywhere.
