Was thinking about Snapchat lately... Whatever I post will be gone in 24 hours, right?
What the reason to spend my time and energy to write/record if nothing will be left behind? Maybe It is a new trend, to live like nobody, leaving nothing after yourself, but I do not get it.
P.S Imagine if Shakespeare or Hemingway had Snapchat instead of a paper...

Working on a post-production for Jewelry 360° rotation course today. This time, we did them on a white background. 
BTW, It was not an easy task to keep BG relatively white and still to get nice sparkles from gemstones. I think we got it! smile emoticon
I am really excited about this course and hope to release it in 2 weeks!

So, this is a first photo (now we can show it smile emoticon that we did for "Creative Objects vs. Creative People" Reve project.
We called this series "Twins and their toys".
The idea behind this series is to show the personality of our girls through their relationship with different toys they play with.
Today we had a fantastic time at Reve exhibition event in San Francisco (see my previous post).
Many thanks Elena Rubtsova and Natalya Spicer and The REVE team for an incredible experience. it was a blast!

Congratulations to our winners - and to everyone who was not afraid to stand against evil vegetables and fruits and made series of awesome images. See yourself - and see how cool when it is not a single, but a series of similarly done subjects..
This is what we'll be concentrating on Pro Club - learn how to create series of images for a maximum impact.
