I Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way

So it's extremely late, and Ryan just left. I had a fantastic night tonight. I love that I can be laid back and not have to worry about impressing him. We do nothing and have a great time. And when we do go out, we also have a great time. I guess this means I'm falling in love. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Yesterday I just took a few photos in my backyard. It's hard to say exactly what I was trying to get across but they mean something to me, even if I don't know what it is...yet. I began to work on a tilt shift project, and took the last 2 polaroids I had. I now have to find a store that sells Fuji Instax film. Otherwise I'll have to buy it online.


Samer wasn't too fond of this one, but for some reason I like it...

I will also be continuing the polaroids with magnetic words. I really like how these two came out :]

I am having a fantastic day! Besides looking cute for work (psh, I ALWAYS look cute :P), lots of exciting things have happened!

I've come up with a few shoot ideas and will hopefully start gathering models, ideas, props, ETC. to make them happen. I'm shooting a friend's promo shots for his album and whatnot hopefully on Sunday, and either Saturday or Sunday I have an idea for a shoot involving a waterfall (shh it's a secret!)

Also today, my boss Caroline and I went out to lunch for sushi with a friend of hers who works for Nylon Magazine. He's a graphic design intern and a very talented one at that! I'm going to try and get a hold of some of his stuff so that I can post it on here. ANYWAY! I'm going to stay in touch with him and hopefully have a chance to shoot some Nylon events in the future.

If you've never heard of Nylon Magazine, well, you should check it out. It's a really sweet fashion magazine (if you're a hipster, you'll fall in love). They feature a lot of awesome indie bands and artists. Overall, definitely my favorite magazine out right now. I would love to work for them in the future.

The only downfall of today was that I forgot to bring my camera to the city with me (sad face), so I did not get to start shooting the personal project I wanted to start working on. I will probably take a few shots later tonight when I get home though.

I'm now going to post some Nylon stuff for anyone who doesn't really know about it. Definitely get into it :]

Little London

I received an e-mail from my Aunt over in London this weekend with a link to some really cool photos of the city. Using a technique called Tilt-shift, the photographer (Toby Allen) made his scenes look like little miniature set ups!

I've seen tilt-shift photos before, but never really read up on the technique. Wikipedia became my source to find out what this was all about, haha. It's not a hard concept at all, and now I'm curious to try it myself. Of course there's a way to use photoshop to make your photos appear as if you've used a special lens, but I kind of want to purchase a lens for it to experiment. After I send out some e-mails at my internship, I may play around in photoshop and create a photo to see what it looks like.

But now I'm just going to post the photos from the article. You can also see it HERE.

We're Not In Jersey Anymore

I am pretty sure it has rained the past 25 out of 28 days, or pretty close to that. At first it was great since Lake Hopatcong really needed the water to raise the lake. But now it's been raining for far too long and I just want the sun! And summer!!

With all this rain, it feels like we could be in Washington State. More exciting, Forks, Washington. That was for all of you Twilight fans out there :] If you're NOT a fan of Twilight, then I'm sorry for the reference. If you have NO IDEA what I'm talking about, this is what I'm referring to

I would only enjoy this weather if Edward Cullen was around

Within the next few days I will be featured on the famous Chainsaws and Jelly blog! Keep an eye out, and if you have never checked out her blog, DO IT! She posts amazing artwork all the time :]

I'm hopefully going to be getting a lot done this weekend. My agenda includes building (YES BUILDING) an infrared filter for my DSLR/SLR cameras, actually shooting some photos, possibly looking for some more loans (gotta pay my SVA tuition soon x___x), enjoying some ice cream and quality time with my boyfriend, and possibly getting another piercing. We'll see how everything pans out though.

I am actually doing work today at my internship, so I must keep this short!

A Little Bit Of...

I find it sad that the "Breaking News" I now see on the television screen is that Myspace is reducing the size of their staff...or something along those lines.

So right now I'm sitting at my office desk in Manhattan wishing that AT LEAST I could look out the window and see something beautiful. But all I see is the building next door.

I haven't done much today but search for some photos for the company's website. I've been trying to brainstorm some ideas about photoshoots that I could do. Samer and I have discussed a possible collaberation to take place soon so watch out for that! I want to try and get some models soon and do something with them as well. I'd love to start getting paid to do shoots...if only.

So I posted my first post on the Behance network last week.

Click the image to view my project! If you're on the network, you should join my inner circle!

I was looking around on flickr and I came across an infrared photo, and thought to myself that I would really like to try it! Now, to conclude this post I will post some infrared photos that I found that I really enjoyed!

Under the Weather

Of course I haven't been updating. What else is new? I did not sleep that well last night because of all the thunderstorms that were going on. I woke up this morning at 6:45 with a sore throat and overall just feeling sick.

I decided not to go into the city for interning and risk getting the whole office sick. I layed around and relaxed (probably what my body needed since I have been running around a lot lately), and I even took a few photos.

(For all of the immature readers out there, no, I was not actually using the bathroom.)

After laying around, I decided to get up and attempt to do something (wash the dishes maybe?)

I'm going to try and do more artwork now. Even if I'm not taking photos, doing anything else would help me in the creativity department. As for now, I have nothing else to say.

Check me out on these other sites!
