About me

Hello,My name is VictoriaTkalenko-Payne. I am a Russian journalist and a photographer. I dedicated half my life to photography. I started with women"s portraits and I had in Russia my own photo-video studio. Now I live in England and I start taking an interest in digital art, especially in photo-painting; that is what I call my pictures. I use Adobe Photoshop 7. I take pictures with my "Canon" PowerShot A80 of everything that I see and that I could use for my future photo-paintings. I am my own model :))) (I live in a rural area where the only other models are the sheep and wild animals:-) I take pictures of myself using time delay and keep these pictures for working out my ideas later. I like to use computer graphic programs, especially Adobe Photoshop; it is my brush and paint as for a real artist-painter.
All my pictures reflect my spiritual world, and express my feelings, attitude to life, to moral values and to people.

    so you agree with my point of view... i agree with yours talking about PS too. what a mighty tool! And its the same to me, brush and colour. there are so many ways to create a piece of art - so many ways to express yourself.
    Isnt it very interesting to see how different (in a positive way) the pictures of people are who think the same way about life and use the same media to express their point of view?

    It all depends on giving someone a chance, doesn´t it?

    life is a bitch...;)
