"I got interested in photography when I was 14 years old," Cijan told Bored Panda. "To this day, I love taking pictures even though I don't have a quality camera and the one on my phone isn't so good, too."

He uses the Oppo A3s, a 2018 phone with a dual lens (13 MP, f/2.2 and 2 MP, f/2.4) camera.

The models in the photos are Cijan's siblings and cousins. "Creating our low budget photoshoot, we worked only inside our home, so I struggled a bit with lighting. I had to improvise solutions since I don't have any photography equipment."

The crafty fella edited the photos on his phone as well. "I used PicsArt and Lightroom apps because they're free on the Google Play store," Cijan said, adding that he doesn't have a computer where post-production would be easier. Just imagine what he could achieve with a proper setup.

Beautiful child. Perhaps a bit too seductive for her age.

Why is Melody's comment hidden? Deny reality all you like, but these LITTLE girls are being turned into women in this photos.
