VLC Photo: From Production to Promotion

Some may know me from my book trailers and photography and the mass panic I can cause over a book online (in a good way). But here you can get to know me a little differently. Though you'll see a lot of fun and nonsense on here, click on the tabs for the more important stuff-my photography, book trailers, and my newest endeavor, social media strategy.
Basically: how can I use social media and help you to use it in order to engage your audience.

Watering: 161/365

by Vania Stoyanova

Oct, 8, 2014

I wanted to play with this image and give it something different. What if she’s not holding a nest but bowl, what if the bowl is spilling something? What if she’s standing in water? So this is the result of my weird brain and what it likes to conjure at 3am.

Watery Dreams: 152/365

by Vania Stoyanova

This is from an old session, from the Elementals series, and I just love it so much that I needed to edit it. It’s so soft and flowy, like water.

Edge: 155/365

by Vania Stoyanova

I did this shot and others as a test of this light I had and I just love it so much. I love that I have the freedom to shoot at night, in an empty garage by just bringing in another light. So much room for creativity and fun.

Pastel Fair Rides: 149/365

by Vania Stoyanova

My darling Morgan joined me at the fair along with newcomer, Robert, and we had such a blast avoiding crowds, eating delicious junk food, and riding the occasional ride or two. Really, two rides. ;) But really, we were there for the pictures and  funnel cake. Yum. 

But aren’t these two adorbs?

Baby Blues: 140/365

by Vania Stoyanova

Today I got the chance to spend some lovely time with the lovely Lily and her mommy Marcy and we hung out, ate, took some pictures, aww at this cutie pie. I seriously had a blast and can’t wait to do round 2 with mommy and baby next week. I just love baby snuggles.

Rebel: 137/365

by Vania Stoyanova

GUYS! I have a new camera and I love it so much! This shoot with my friend Chandler being all rebellious is the first shoot I did with it. Also so many changes, namely the way that I edit. Always trying to improve, ya know? I don’t want to get stuck doing the same thing because that’s just no fun. So now, I want to work on simplifying my photography and yet being able to have the details I like to have. Even if it’s my fantasy stuff. 

Also, I wish you could see her eyes. I have a new trick in editing eyes and have been taking full advantage. lol

Retouching: 134/365

by Vania Stoyanova

Sometimes i just like to open up a PS file, pick an image I love, and retouch it, for nothing else than just to play and practice. This is a shot of the AMAZING (OMG GUYS SHE’S SO GOOD!) model, Lexi, from a recent cover shoot. This image won’t be on a cover anything so I thought I can share it with you all. Maybe I’ll be brave and share a before shot. I get so nervous sharing those since I usually like to send out my photos into the internets being all shiny and pretty. So let me know if you would like to see it.
