Laughing Nymph: Sheneal

 Hello There!

  I'm getting back into the scheme of updating semi regularly again! I had the awesome opportunity to explore more of Eden Park with my friend Sheneal! She's been taking a photography course, so we get together occassionally to go out and photograph, which I love. Here are a few of my favorites I took of her.

Confetti Queens: Lauren

 Hello there!

  It's been a while. I haven't been updating but I've definitely been shooting. I helped my friend Lauren celebrate her 21st Birthday, and came up with a new theme as well. I've always been interested in highly stylized photography.  I came up with this idea to toss confetti on crowns worn by different styles of women and I literally thought it was the best thing in the world. 

 We took pictures with help from Lauren's Daughter, but she wasn't really feeling the confetti, so I had to do them myself. It took a few tries, but I got quite a few shots I really liked, and Lauren had a blast, and that's all that really matters right? Below are some of my favorites.

Hello There!

 This was the first roll I started to attempt to photograph people along with my buildings. I am still way too new, and worried about getting yelled at to take really good street photography of people but I'll get there eventually.

 I was pretty excited about how dark the church steeple photo came out, i know you can't necessarily tell what it is, but it's a lot more creative than the rest of the photos, and this is why I love film! You can get so many crazy unique things organically, instead of afterwards in editing. 

 I love photographing the churches in my area because they are just so majestic and regal and other than people they are definitely one of my favorite things to shoot.

Hello!!

  I'm so in love with Film. Here are some more photos I took on 400 iso Kodak Gold!

 I took all of these, while dropping off a package to Amazon. I very rarely make it near downtown or college town, so I definitely wanted to take advantage of being there. I finally bit the bullet and started taking a class to learn lightroom and its so much fun! I don't know why I waited so long, my pictures look so good! I'm really in love with the pink/purple violets here? The picture came out really dark, but I was able to raise the brightness on the flowers and now it looks super moody and awesome.

 This particular session was filled with architechture as usual. The first photo is one of my favorites, because the house reminds me of hobbiton. It makes my nerdy heart happy. I have been drooling over the third picture, becuase it is a boarded up abandoned house that you can see from the highway, and I've been wanting to pull over and photograph it for a really long time, and I finally got the opportunity to do so.

 Due to a traffic jam, I had to take a different new way to work and I just found so many interesting pieces of architecture. The very first shot, is Q, my best friends little boy, and he is the most precious thing ever! I was so happy to be able to capture him on film.

Witchy Vibes

 Hello!

  I took my cousin Bri out for some modeling! I am so excited that people are modeling for me now, so i get to do all kinds of different photography. We did Day and Night Photography, but the Night photos will be in another post. I told her to dress witchy because I was going to try out smoke bombs for the first time, but Walmart let me down. So I armed her with my Snape replica wand, and we headed out in search for awesome places to photograph!

 We happened upon a man made lake, and there was this awesome wooden bridge so I decided to take the photos there, It was starting to drizzle so we pulled out an umbrella and I got some adorable ones of those as well. I didn't really have a theme for these shots, so I just like to think of them having a witchy vibe. I shot these photos digitally, with a 35-80mm lens on a Canon 70D.

Edited #1: My Favorites From Easter

Hello!

  I finished editing my easter portraits for my friend Robin a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it would be fun to show you some of my favorites. I'm trying to do more in terms of portraiture, and editing skills. So every time, I finish photos for a client, or from a shoot, I'll put them up here, only my faves though!

Hello!

 I had a rather productive two weeks of film photography and had five rolls of film to turn in. I love scanning in the prints so I can have copies in case something happens. I want to use the blog to show off my film work. I don't really get to do a lot with it, since it's just a hobby, but I love how some of them turn out so that's what these posts will be about. 

 Here are a couple of my favorites. I shoot with a Pentax K1000 and 35mm lens, I have a 50 mm lens coming which I am OH so excited about! I'm hoping to do portraits with that one. I've put out a call for film portraits so hopefully someone will answer.

Hoppy Easter!

Hello.

 I had the awesome opportunity to photography my friend Robin's family. Every year the entire family comes out to a park in the city and I do group pictures and individuals. It's one of my favorite annual photography shoots. I don't get to photograph a lot of people so it's always a blast when the opportunity rolls around.

I was halfway through a 400 ISO Kodak Gold Film roll when I arrived so I finished it off with the Gazebo, the beautiful fountain, and close-ups of some of the floral and berries. Since flowers have started blooming, walks through parks have become a lot more fun to photograph. This one is my favorite.
