Lyudmila Semenova

Where are you born and when?

One sunny winter day in Kazan, Russia.

Where do you live?

Kazan, Russia.

When and how do you start your path in photography?

In 2012, as a hobby.

Who were the three photographers that inspired you at the beginning and who are the three ones that inspire you now?
Please add links to the pages where the images are shown.

I don’t remember who inspired me at the beginning, but now my favorite photographers are Man Ray, Nobuyoshi Araki, Jacques Henri Lartigue and Peter Lindbergh.

Did you go to a school or are you a self-taught?

I’m a self-taught, it’s not very hard to learn photography by yourself if you put in enough effort.

Do you make photography as a living?

No, it’s still kind of a hobby (very very important hobby).

What do you like in photography, what is your motivation?


What do you want to express or arouse in those who watch your images?

Beauty and estetics of nude body.

What are your preferred moment(s) in the creation process?

Digital editing of my photos.

What are your three most representative images, and why?
Please add links to the pages where the images are shown.

I love all of my works.

What equipment and/or techniques do you use?

It is not a matter of brands/lenses, it is mostly about analog/digital, preferred light (natural/flash), how much post-production, etc.

I don’t care too much about equipment I use to take photos, so usually I use my digital camera. I use a lot of editing in Adobe Photoshop then.

How and why your work as changed since you started?

I used to make photos about everything, but know my main themes are portrait and nude photography. I don’t know how else my works changed, it’s quite hard to notice changes when you’re doing this every day.

What do you think about the fact that nowadays photography is mostly enjoyed on the Internet?

It’s okay as long as people like it.

Why did you decide to join the nudeartzine project?

To share my works with more people.

Would you have an insight or advice to give to whomever is watching your work and wants to learn photography?

Look for beauty where others cannot see it.

What are your plans in the future?

I never make plans.

On what page our readers can find more of your work?

In my Instagram @ne.portret.

Would you like to add something else?

Perhaps not.
