I take a lot of photos! Sometimes 100 or more a day. But don't worry, I don't post that many here :)

 

I usually do not alter my photos in any way after they have been taken. That means not even cropping. Although I agree there are many ways to make your photos better, I myself prefer an unaltered realistic approach/look. (Update 2009: so now I have discovered www.picnik.com, and I am changing my mind about un-edited photos a little!)

 

I do like to alter photos while taking them - lomo fisheye, lomo supersampler, b/w film, soft focus (nailpolish camera), lomolitos, polaroid.

Elena is such a dedicated daily photographer, always challenging herself to see things in fresh ways and try all kinds of shots. She's also an extremely supportive Flickr friend to all those whose work she follows. I love seeing her shots of Seattle and her walks with her pet, and all the ideas she has come up with for her 365 project, which she's only got a couple months to go now. I'm loving seeing her shots with her new DSLR and can't wait to see where she will go with her art next. She is a gem among Flickrites and a wonderful human being! I think years hence historians might turn to her photo stream to help chronicle the history of Seattle's cafes and coffee shops! Yey Elena! -Kim Seattle Daily Photo

Elena is one the sweetest women I know! Not just on flickr but out of everyone I know. She is very kind and tremendously thoughtful. I am very glad we’ve gotten to be friends – she brightens up my day! I love her photos too (-:

Elena gives the kindest comments. Another friend on flickr recommended her photos to me, because she thought I would like her shoe photography.

Elena gives the kindest comments. Another friend on flickr recommended her photos to me, because she thought I would like her shoe photography. Let me just say I went here for the shoes, but I keep coming back to her photostream because she has such an eye for detail and for things most people overlook. I love looking at her images and even though we live in the same area her view of places I have been are different than mine and it gives me something to search for the next time I go to that place. Her images say so much about her interest in fashion especially shoes and shots from her daily trips out and about appeal to my visual side. When I look at her photos I do not even feel like I am looking at an image I feel like I am there and that speaks volumes about her skill as a photographer. =)

Elena was one of the first people I met on flickr. I was attracted to her wonderful stylish wardrobe remix photos. Now I look forward to all her pics, from the space needle to Nordstroms latest window display. She is artistic, kind, pretty and has a cool sense of humor. Don't miss her ATC pictures.
