She blows in On the breeze Ruffling her skirts Being a tease. A sudden chill Hits the air Nobody Knows just where This stranger Has come from. But summer’s warmth Is history As she stays awhile To dance with the trees In a summer romance Turned mystery.
Oh. WOW! Awesome 2 days of meeting new people, sharing, making new friends and… learning! I am so amazed at support I have received after my speech! After all – that was first time I was speaking in front of such big audience. I have to tell you – I was a bit, no, sorry – a lot nervous about being in front of such a big audience. I have done a few Intimate workshops with 3-5 people and have been a guest speaker a few times in front of 12-15, but never in front of 100+, speaking with microphone. I was afraid that my accent is going to be too thick. I also needed to let people know that I needed to see in order to hear 🙂 For example – if I don’t have my glasses on – my hearing drops dramatically. :)You might be thinking: Ha? The answer is simple I need to read lips so I can hear better. So I have asked people to articulate for a blonde. 🙂 I am a genuine blonde after all. I am very thankful, very honoured to be presenting next to such an amazing, talented photographers as Yervant, Dan O’Day, Samm Blake, Mercury Megaloudis and Hilary Wordhough People telling me how much they have learnt… Feedback that we have received with people saying – they want to learn more – that is invaluable! I scored an impressive 8.5/10 overall from the survey from the SeminarHere are just a couple of testimonilas I have received Hi Kira Likhterova – I just wanted to say a big thank you for everything you talked about at the Pro Photo Seminars event last Mon and Tues.

Interesting thing happened when I have posted my self-portraits on facebook and asked opinions of friends and fans if that image was suitable for my profile. The response was overwhelming. I might even consider letting other people photograph me (never before :). My husband will be really pleased to hear that. Please have a look at the images and comments. Add yours, if you like. I am not afraid anymore 🙂 Here are the images. Please follow links below to check out what was said of each one… check what my fans are saying Kira’s self-portait check what my fans are saying Kira’s self-portrait 2 My dear fans. I need your opinion. Apparently I had no recent photos of myself ( surprise, surprise :), except for my wedding ones, and I was asked to provide it together with my bio for the Seminar and workshops being organised with me as a speaker. Well – that is what I saw in the mirror. Honestly – I tried. 🙂 But am no…t sure that it sends the right message? Am I looking sad? Or just hmmmm… wise? Hehehe (translation – old..) LOL I am seriously, seriously believe that I am a woman behind the camera, not in front. Need your opinions, please. Should it be sort of more cheerful? 🙂 Help, please
