10 steps to shooting a portrait, the experience of Elena Lucan

1. The need to shoot new
Every day I think about how I shoot, what I shoot, and especially about how I haven’t shot yet.
I am inspired by artists, photographers, directors who influenced visual art in general. I watch their work, read the biography and when something catches me, I stop and want to repeat.
