Interview: Photographer Jelena Sky (Lithuania)
Can you tell us a little about you?
First of all, thank you, its a pleasure to have this interview! I grew up and living in Lithuania. As a child I felt in love with photography, because my loved grandfather had this hobby, with him I learned to shot on film, develop and print !Develop was the most excited part !
How and when did you get into photography?
I have always been a creative person since I can remember, always drawing and writing as a child, was engaged with , music, painting. But I realize that I was very hooked from the moment I got my firs camera.. I couldn’t sleep after every beautiful picture .. Photography became an integral part of my life. I went to study photography in college , by the way finish three of them:) Its was so interesting changing someone perspective, someones life, Its about motivation, sadness, love, fear, hope, anger, happiness.
Photography is not just an art...It's an emotion and perhaps that’s why it is interesting to me.
What does photography mean to you?
Photography is an art of telling a story without uttering a single word. To me, photography is not about seeing, it’s about feeling. If you can’t feel your surroundings, then those around you can’t sense anything from your picture. Photography is lot more than what it can be defined.

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
The one piece of advice I would give new photographers is to stop looking. Stop looking at what everyone else is doing. Stop looking at pages on Facebook, don't buy actions because you see people promoting them. Shoot every type of photography you want and wait to see what you fall in love with. It doesn't matter what you see other people doing and think you like. It matters what you fall in love with shooting.
