Getting ready Part II: The dress.
I photographed my first large-scale wedding yesterday. I have been editing the “getting ready” portion all day and these are my favorites. Loving my new camera. Loving these beautiful people.
I went blueberry picking with my friends Jacqui, Brianna, and Alex a few weeks ago. It was one of my favorite days ever. These are a few of my favorite shots from the trip.
Hey! I wouldn’t mind giving it a try! If the proportions of everything need to be specific, you can send me a picture of what you want on graph paper. That will make it easier for me to recreate exactly. Send it my way and I will see what I can do! My e-mail address is email@example.com. We can discuss compensation later (although I really like brown leather things:))
Mr. Grant Langdon, also known as my loving significant other, is what some may call a “supa-nerd”. Nerds are the best, I don’t know if you know this… but nerdy gentleman are the best to date. As long as they can balance you with their video game/computer game time. (One tip of advice - don’t be in the room with them if they’re playing Terraria. It has the most annoying audio ever!!!!)
So, when Sir Langdon isn’t playing Terraria to annoy me, or killing zombies, or playing WOW, LOL, or larping, he enjoys a classic D&D campaign. He is currently DMing a campaign that takes place in the land of “Shrandaris”. He commissioned me to create a map of Shrandaris for the players to have something visual to look at and reference to.
The above images are the stages of creating the land of Shrandaris (the first being Grant’s sketch). I had never painted a map before so this was a fun and new experience. I really enjoyed creating it and Grant was very happy with the result.
So if any of you nerds out there would like me to make maps for your D&D campaigns, let me know! :)
Last week Shane, Grant and I went to see the Tall Ships in Lower Harbor. We were able to take a tour on the nautical abode called the “Peacemaker”. I brought my fisheye lens adapter with me and I thought the pictures turned out pretty well. Twas a beautiful day in Marquette.
This is my beautiful mother and her new boyfriend Paul. She always gets on my case about not posting my pictures. And she’s right for doing so. I’m AWFUL at posting pictures on facebook or any other social media site and it makes me cranky most days when people bug me about the photos I have taken.
Honestly, it boils down to the thousands of photos that are untouched on my computer. I feel like I should do something about the photos I took in May before I start with June…and what about the ones I took in December… or last year?… I should probably post those pics from 2011 before I put up the photos I took today!!!!!??? Right???!! And then I close my computer and swear off photography forever. (I might have a little bit of an anxiety problem haha)
But I can’t stay away from photography…clearly. My camera goes wherever I go. My problem is that I love taking the actual photos better than what I do with them after. However, having this tumz is one of my self-help solutions to get me out of the downward spiral I feel with I get overwhelmed with my photos.
My goal is to be more prompt in posting the photos I have taken, then take breaks to dig up some of the old ones. I really do enjoy photography, even the editing and posting parts, and I am determined to become a legitimate professional photographer someday.
Okay, that’s more than enough midnight ramblings for now! Goodnight my fellow Tumblrs!
(Hope you like the pictures mum :])
Hi. I am Sabrina. This is my first blog ever! (Unless you count the Xanga I made in middle school… which you should, it was very blog-y.) So this is my first real adult-like blog!
So being an adult, and being an adult who is obsessed with all sorts of arts and crafts, I figured it was time I started completing projects and showing them to the world. And perhaps try being an artist for realz…. you know… selling things…. taking commissions…. and promoting myself (none of which I am good at… yet).
Disclaimer: I don’t really feel like a full-on adult quite yet. I’m still in college for another year and look forward to the day when I have what some may call a “big girl job”. Plus, I have been told that I look perpetually 12 years old for most my life (just kidding… it’s more like 16 years old).
Nonetheless, this is the way I hope to begin my adult-ish artist-like career while sharing my thoughts along the way. I am a photographer, painter, card-maker and full-time doodler.
