There are those people in your life that you always glad to see, they can easily make you laugh and next to them you can be just yourself. At my last visit to my hometown Kiev I had a chance to photograph a wonderful couple of my good friends – Vitalina and Sergey. I was really glad about this opportunity. We know each other for more than 12 years already and I must say that they had a huge impact on my life, especially Sergey. I am very thankful for people like this in my life. Even thou we can’t see each other very often we still stay close and really open. This connection helped to make as natural photographs as they can only be.
For this particular shoot we have decided to go the Kiev Sea. After some scouting we’ve got to a nice place where the sea borders with a forest. Sunset sun helped to give a nice warm feeling to the pictures; even if it was very windy and cold, which you can not really see 😉
I have used two manual focusing lenses: Samyang 14mm f2.8 and Helios 58mm f2.0 and Canon 5D mark III. As usual when you work with manual focus it is quite a challenge to follow moving subjects and to keep your pictures sharp. This time was not different. But I am glad about the results and hope you will like it as much as I do.
