Dear publishers,

ok, I'm back. I won't post so many photos as I did before, but I'd like to become a part of this society again. I think it was a long enough time to take a rest from all this thief-thing. Thanks for the support,
Monika

DEAR PUBLISHERS,
if you'd like to buy one of my photos to use it as a cover for a book, please contact me: stojakmistrz@hotmail.com / my facebook gallery www.facebook.com/pages/Monika-…



I am really sorry guys. I am leaving deviantArt deleting almost all my photographs. The reason why I do this is the fact, that I cannot stop breaking my copyright law anymore. There are people who are stealing my images and doing whatever they want with them without my will and knowledge. T-shirts, paintings which are being sold, manipulations, layouts etc. I do not have the strenght to fight with this anymore, especially since the amount of stealers have increased. I am going to fucking miss this site, because you were the ones who helped me gain the popularity. I :heart: you for that, but leaving deviantArt is the best way to prevent my images to be used in illegal way in foreign countries, where I cannot really send my lawyer. Thanks guys from the bottom of my heart

Kisses,
Monika Stojak

PS You can congratulate this guy: belovedofamon.deviantart.com/ whose rudeness made me take those serious steps. I know there are many stealers, some of them sell my works or stuff made from my photos, I know. But this guy's words were too much for today. He claimed that guess what? I haven't written nowhere that my photos cannot be used in banners, so he will download all of them. When I told him about my lawyer, he told me not to be surprised to see my works as a cover of sth. You may say that these are the empty words, but they proved me, that my images cannot be safe on dA.


I am still on facebook ->www.facebook.com/pages/Monika-…

ok, here comes the expected night. I MISS PHOTOGRAPHY. I miss the difficulties with styling, make up and hair and with creating a story, finally I miss the hours in front of the screen editing. I haven't taken photos since 17.06 and it's high time to make a step forward. Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it in the heat and between the parties and looking for a flat.

FAQ

facebook / blogspot / ask me / maxmodels / digart / loudmajor

Some questions you ask are the same, so I've decided to make not only your lives, but also mine much easier :)


How old are you?
19 in November

What camera and lenses do you use?
Canon EOS 30D, 18-55mm/3.5-5.6, 50mm/1.4

Do you use any equipment?
Only tripod and a wire for self-portraits.

What programmes do you use?
Photoshop CS3, PS 7.0

Do you use photoshop actions, tutorials, textures?
I've modifided some actions to create one. I've tried to follow some tutorials, but never managed to remember the steps. Textures sometimes, but I prefer to blend photographs.

Since when you've been taking photos?
2007

How is that you became a photographer?
I started with taking self-portraits, then I was trying to take some photos of my friends. I asked my parents for a camera for some occasion and there it was :) it's not an unusual story.

What inspires you?
Kaliber 44, Paktofonika, Pijani Powietrzem, 3xklan, The Knife+Fever Ray, Michał Lorenc, Fryderyk Chopin, HIM, Tegan And Sara, Kayah+Bregovic, Adele, Stromae, Mozart; Adam Mickiewicz, Johann W. Goethe; "Pan's Labyrinth", "Arizona Dream", Tim Burton, "500days of summer", "Stranger than paradise", "I am Dina", "Brute"; out of body experience, Scandinavia, Alice in Wonderland, my life, your life, emotions, nordic mythology, photography, drawings, paintings.

Who are your favourite photographers?
www.flickr.com/photos/lissyl/
www.nicolinepatricia.com/
sarachmet.carbonmade.com/
www.demarchelier.net/home.html
www.timwalkerphotography.com/
sadmadman.digart.pl
twardowskimarcin.digart.pl/

Where have you learned photography?
I'm a self-taught.

Who are your models?
They are my friends or people I get to know through the Internet, sites for models.

Where do you take the clothes from? Who does the make-up?
The clothes belong to me, my mom, my friends, their moms haha. We buy them in 'ordinary' shops, second-hands, through the internet. The make-up artist is usually my model Kamila Patyna, but when she's not around the models or me do this.

What would you advise photographers-amateurs?]Save money for good lenses; don't try to follow others fully, of course you can gain inspiration, but never try to do the same thing; try new things, new ways of editing, new poses, new models, new styling; shoot with more experienced photographers; create your own style, at least try to.

How have you become so popular with your photography?
Popular is a big word and doesn't fit me yet.

Do you want to make photography your job?
It would be hard, but I'd like to earn some extra money from it, but it would be impossible to make a living from my hobby.

Can I use your photo?
I only allow using my photo as a reference for paintings and drawings. You should ask first for permission, then credit me and show the finished work :>

Who would you like to take a photo of?
There are many people, there is no good answer to this question.


If I missed sth, please tell me and I'll fix that

aaaaa

to inspire!
share with me with your favourite sites, photographs, songs, paintings, lyrics and poems because my emotional part of life is in a deep black hole, I haven't experienced any strong feelings recently. I'm shooting on Friday with Patyna and a new girl so I need to tell a story, but I have no idea!
kisses



wow, you're really cool! I've looked through the links, poems, all the stuff you've recommended and I'm very thankful for your help! The ideas are pilgriming to my imagination since yesterday and in order to keep them there, I set up my tumblr account, here is the link stojak.tumblr.com/

/+ 20.03/ I know. I shouldn't try so much to be better, to tell more interesting stories, to arrange the places in an original way. I'm the best at showing the prettier world than it really is, and I should keep with that. I'm worried that I might lose my own style, that's why I'm coming back to the roots! Thanks for the support :kiss:

ok guys, high time to complain! I feel so powerless, because if you asked me about my ideas, dream shoots, I would mention them two days and two nights. But it turns out quickly that I don't really have, or cannot find the opportunities to pursue my concepts. My city just doesn't provide them, I believe. Sure, I can travel, but it's nothing convenient. I am able now to shoot only during the weekends, and during those oridnary ones I have other responsibilities (matura exams in May for instance). Maybe it's the city, maybe the places, which become the sceneries for almost every photographer here, maybe I can't find the right clothes, props, but maybe it's just me who can't succeed in arranging the space. I really feel I can do better but I guess I'm just good at words and planning things in my mind... It sucks that I'm the only obstacle in developing myself. Funny, isn't it...
