Twilight

Today I wanted to post some more photos from the shoot I did earlier in the month. Some were done using window light (my favorite!) and others a mix of natural and artificial light. I try to use natural light whenever possible because, in my opinion, it’s the most beautiful and the most real. It’s real in the sense that skin tones are true as are other colors. Another technique I like to implement is…

A Colon and a Parentheses

I have been fortunate enough to have very willing friends when it comes to my hobbies. Honestly, when you’re starting out in photography or film, or any field for that matter, it really helps to have people willing to help you or at least support you. I’ve been lucky in that I have both! I can only name a handful of shoots over the past few years that didn’t require me asking for some assistance….

Baby, You’re a Firework

Baby, You’re a Firework

On the fourth of July I was lucky enough to be invited to a FC Dallas soccer game by my boyfriend and his family. As usual, I brought my camera along and I’m glad I did; the game was, for lack of a better word, boring, and I kept myself occupied by taking photos. Now don’t get me wrong, I love soccer, but this game in particular just wasn’t very interesting. Lately I have come…

Oozeball

Oozeball

My school has this annual mud volleyball tournament they like to call ‘oozeball’. I’ve never participated in the past, but this year my friends put together a team and of course, I tagged along with my camera. Surprisingly, it looked like a lot of fun! I’m not a big fan of getting dirty, but I’m fortunate enough to have some friends that are. They were caked with so much mud by the end of the…

Behind the Masquerade

Just thought I might include some photos from the aftermath of my ‘Masquerade’ shoot. For the future, I have learned that acrylic paint is not the easiest thing to get off. Not so much to say about these! Hope you enjoyed nonetheless 🙂 Happy trolling!

Black and White Masquerade

Black and White Masquerade

I am officially on a black and white binge. Coincidentally, I’ve also been researching portrait photographers lately for school and find myself running into a lot of dramatic black and white portraiture that has prompted me to go on a complete binge this week. After being flooded with all this inspiration, I walked up to my roommate, asked her to be my model, and proceeded to my portrait studio. Or, well, ok, it was just…

The Light Effect

The Light Effect

This week I decided to try something I’ve always found fascinating: light writing. It’s not exactly a new idea, but I’ve never spent a reasonable amount of time testing it out before and so decided to see where I could push it. Most of the first shots I tried were simple shapes: After having success with several of those, I tried incorporating the lights off-camera: I feel as though these last two could have been…

Cinestyle Photography

  So I spent the weekend in Austin for my friend’s graduation and took quite a few photos while I was down there. I am so lucky that my friend’s apartment had gorgeous lighting because it was cold and rainy all through the weekend and I had to take most of my shots indoors. I’ll have to go back and get some shots of the capital, too, because they live ridiculously close… as in, this…

I’m in Love with a Lens

So, in case anyone was wondering, all the photos I post here are ones that I’ve taken. Photography and film are huge parts of my life and I like incorporating them into my writing. Lately I’ve been experimenting with different lighting situations and have discovered a lot of great new ways to light my scenes and subjects! Earlier this year I was lucky enough to get my hands on the new Canon 60D, and I’ve…
