Lidija Lolic (ex Zizic)
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
I'm a freelance photographer based in Split, Croatia. My first experience with photography began in my childhood, when I was helping developing black and white photos in home laboratory. Since my father was a hobby photographer I was always surrounded by cameras, photography equipment and roles of film, listening to lessons about photography facts and terms.
Ever since I have a digital camera I enjoy taking photos, but the breaking point happened when I bought my first DSLR camera. Actively, I’m in photography since the beginning of 2008.
I love many genres of photography and my favourite are: nature and landscape, streets, panoramic and wedding photography.
The big part of my portfolio are carefully composed colorful landscapes, taken in the times of day when the light is perfect for that sort of photography – sunset or an early morning.
Also, I take big pride in my wedding photography, where I capture beautiful moments, portraits and emotions of the most special day in life. Happines of my clients and their beautifully captured memories are my greatest award.
In my photographic career I took part in many exhibitions, my photographs were published in magazines and newspapers, and also many touristic and other web pages use them to decorate their pages. Also, I have written several newspaper articles about photographic techniques, compositions and genres.
I’m a member of the Photo club Split and I’m an active member of many online photography communities, both Croatian and international, where I meet and communicate with photographers from all over the world. That way I can improve even more and learn many things related to photography.
I constantly learn about photography, different techniques and technologies, post-processing and workflow, which includes digital assets management. In my opinion, good organization and workflow are very important part of the photography creating process.
My goal is to constantly improve my craft and my knowledge. Learning curve is endless, and I’m usually my own biggest critic. It can always be better than it is.
I love to travel and I’m in a constant search to capture the magic moment, when the perfect light embraces small part of the world around us and shows it in it’s full glow.
