“Children and animals – it’s my life. I’m a mom with two sons and we spend a lot of time on the farm,” - Shumilova told Bored Panda.
“When shooting I prefer to use natural light – both inside and outside. I love all sorts of light conditions – street lights, candle light, fog, smoke, rain and snow – everything that gives visual and emotional depth to the image.”
“When I graduated from school I entered Moscow Institute of Architecture where I practiced with sketching and painting a lot. I suppose it is sketching and painting that defined my feeling of photography and composition.”
“I’ve been shooting every day and processing the images at nights. By autumn I felt I found my own way of approaching photography.”
“I largely trust my intuition and inspiration when I compose photos. I get inspired mainly by my desire to express something I feel, though I usually cannot tell exactly what that is.”
“I’m so glad that my pictures began to be liked by many people. It inspires me & it makes me do better with my pictures.”
Thank you, Elena, for the interview. We are looking forward to more magical pictures!
