Have you every heard of the International Day of Happiness?
The International Day of Happiness was introduced by the General Assembly of the United Nations during 2012 and was celebrated for the first time in 2013.
The original idea came from the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayan region of Asia. There, the population is thought by many to be among the happiest in the world due to the holistic approach to life and the amount of importance which is placed on the well being of people and communities, as much as material wealth.
I guess it is a good reason to stop for a moment and think about what is happiness? You may find the answer at once or think of it for a longer time. But it seems to me that happiness is when you feel yourself happy no matter of anything. Hell with everything, I am happy today to share my recent photoworks (a good reason to make this day special and order a canvas here pictorem):

Christmas is the most interesting topic to photograph. However, be aware that making pictures of your Christmas tree needs the knowledge of some details. I am not so experienced yet and I am learning how to do it.
Outdoor photography at night requires a tripod – obligatory! It’s the only way to guarantee a crisp shot for your long exposures. It is recommended to forget your flash since your flash could interfere with the lights’ color.Now the main parameters.
It is said that we should start with ISO as 400. If our photos are too dark, increase it, but know that any increase to the ISO will degrade image quality. Your aperture should be f/8. It is always good to keep in mind that the lower numbers bring more light, while the higher -less.
When you need more light, increase the exposure time (slow shutter speed). We have to use macro lenses with the lowest aperture. In case you would not like to use manual, then put your camera on aperture priority and set the lowest f number your lens will allow, for example f/2.8 up to f/4.6. When using aperture priority, make sure automatic ISO is turned off. You do want to choose this setting yourself, so you can keep it to around 400 ISO.
However, the most important rule is just have fun while making pictures and preparing your greeting cards. If it is still difficult for you and you feel not sure In yourself, please feel free to contact me and I will present you any of these cute photos with your greetings or design the collage of your dreams for you!
Have a great weekend!

Hello, my dear Friends,
Hope your week was successful and you did manage to accomplish several serious tasks. If not, then do not worry, you have plenty of time yet. Now time to relax and visit my channel at youtube. Many of you know that I am a devoted film maker who cannot live a day without her camera. I am obsessed with making videos about everything around me. Sometimes I dare to think of myself as a person who MAKES TIME STAND STILL. Every moment is unique and I would like to keep in in my heart.
Though film making is not my only passion. Two years ago I discovered the still motion world and since then I have been babbling about any fantastic capture. A crazy kid who is happy about every shot made, especially great one.

One more obsession, devotion, and work, which makes my heart jump in delight!

There’s nothing more exciting and challenging than a new video about spring!😊 This time it was particularly captivating since I was literary under the weather and grey clouds that were frowning at me. They were pretty against of me, did several attempts to stop me, but failed. No power can stop Ann when she holds her beloved camera and hunts for spectacular views to share. There’s always something unique to be seen through my camera lenses. Believe me It’s worse fighting against weather and any other obstacles. For some of you this video will be special one, cannot tell why – you have to watch it till the end, surprise is waiting for you…😉 I guess spring is the most generous season, isn’t it, dear artists? So much beauty in every detail that you need extra time and battery to capture them. I continue my spring journey to discover the unseen and to admire the known, are you in? Then click the magic link:
My dear Friends, remember that my reward is your sweet comment, I need them so much! Thank you!

Love you all,
Dear Friends, as I promised you here a good choice for this weekend – my film. A new episode of Fun Time with Ann (with Ukrainian subtitles) devoted to snow, winter and fun. Where there is Ann, there cannot be a serious topic, though do not forget that I do usually talk unserious about serious. In every joke there is a piece of truth, right? Thus, this is a very serious work which took lots of my time and knowledge. I confess that this is the FILM I IMAGINED FIRST and only then filmed. I played it in my head before pressing record button. I guess better not to talk much and let you watch, and share with me your after thoughts. You know how much I treasure every your comment and like. They are vital muses for my creative and hungry mind, yeah, I am very hungry for your comments. Be generous!
Enjoy weekend and relax well!
Love you all,
Yours Crazy Director

“The mountains are calling and I must go” (John Muir)
It is Monday and the beginning of new week full of challenges for us. Right? How are you doing?
Mountains I saw in Poland still haunt me. I constantly imagine them in my head and recall days spent next to them. The pictures presented in the postcard above are made on the territory of the Tatra National Park on the way to Morskie Oko lake (be patient to see one of the most beautiful lake in the world). It was one of cloudy days that make you feel the mystery even stronger. It is a very big park with long distances to walk. Even the most demanding hikers can be satisfied, however, I shall not be so confident as I do not belong to their group. On the contrary, I am the laziest hiker who may choose a ride in the horse carriage other then a 9-km walk. However, dear hikers, do not frown, during my first time here I did conquer this route, thus have some faith in me. It was marvelous and I am still so proud of myself, though my feet were of the opposite opinion. Anyway, finding myself there again was so great I hardly can describe. High Tatras, a very clean and peaceful lake and…thousands of nosy tourists sitting, walking, making pictures everywhere and you have to go around lake somewhere further to the forest to find some place to eat your sandwich. Huh! This place is very popular among tourists, you probably won’t be able to stay there completely alone. Anyway, it is still charming and magical!
Mountains call me
I must go
Road is chosen
Swept off by nature flow
