These photos are beyond enchanting, and have an almost surreal nature to them. They were taken by photographer Elena Shumilova, on her family’s farm in Russia. The photos are based around her two young children, and all of their favorite farm animals — dogs, cats, ducklings, and rabbits.
The rural setting, and natural landscape set the tone for each and every image. They are slightly moody, with dreamy coloring, and perfect lighting. “When shooting I prefer to use natural light – both inside and outside. I love all sorts of light conditions – street lights, candle light, fog, smoke, rain and snow – everything that gives visual and emotional depth to the image,” Shumilova says of her technique.
Shumilova first discovered her interest in photography only a couple of years ago. She shoots using her most recently acquired equipment — a Canon EOS Mark II camera, and a 135mm lens. She strives to never miss a moment to capture photos of her fast growing boys — taking photos each day, and processing them by night.
