Capturing ChangeHello, everyone!Capturing Change by OliviaMichalski
In this journal I want to tell you something about my experiences with the "Capturing Change" project.
About one month ago 4thofficial contacted me and asked whether I'd like to enter a photography project. Of course I entered!
The theme was easy to understand. "Capturing Change - How has your city changed over the years?"
We had several Skype talks in which I learned to know the other participants:
darkdex52, Miguel-Santos, and MARX77.
I thought it would be difficult for me to change my eye of photography to the genre called "street", but it worked quite easily. We got a camera from Sony to use, and I got the Sony A7R with a 28-70mm lens. Shooting in full frame is really different from shooting with an APS-C camera. But it is definitely more fun!
The project was the biggest photography project I ever did. It was such an honor to work together with both deviantART and Sony. And I am so thankful to be a

I have some really great news!
About a month ago, in mid-October, I was contacted by DeviantART for participating in a project. They had read my journal of how I was raising funds for a new camera, since my old 1000D had run out of shutter’s life, and decided I would be perfect for the new project by Sony.
4 photographer, me included, all received Sony mirroless cameras and were set out for a week-long shoot capturing change in each of our countries. I got myself a Sony a7R with E 55-210mm telephoto lens. I also thought a wider-angle lens would be really suited for the project, so using the fundraiser money, I got myself the Sony E 16mm F2.8 Pancake lens.
It really is the biggest project I’ve ever done in my life, and the very first professional job I’ve got as a photographer. Really, it’s the biggest event in my 25 years of life, and I’m proud of my finished work. Really
