Instagram

Hey everyone!   As I said in my last post, I am not going to be using this blog as regularly as I would like. You can, however, follow me on Instagram for all of my favorite as latest photos! I would still love to see all of your comments and I will always follow back so…

Break

To all my lovely readers, While I have very much enjoyed my time writing to you and sharing my photos and thoughts, I am afraid it is going to be a while before you hear from me again. It is finals week here at school so my time to write freely outside of an assignment…

Lightroom

I love Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Love it! Surprisingly a lot of people don’t even know Lightroom exists within the Adobe creative cloud because typically when we think of photo editing, Photoshop comes to mind. Well, I am here to tell you that Lightroom does exist and it is fantastic. While I am not an avid…

Snapseed 2.0

A few weeks ago I did a post about the app, Snapseed. This week I did a little experimenting with the app and I have some mixed feelings. I am usually hesitant to use photo editing apps because I usually find that they are very basic in what they offer, plus I usually like an excuse to…

Angles

Check out this awesome submission from rmrickson, author of fantastic fashion and beauty blog;  Buy Now Cry Later. Finding the best angles and cutest poses for pictures can be a lifesaver. The key to a good picture is good posture. Stand up straight and be confident. Good posture will also elongate you and makes the…

Challenge

When it comes to photography, you never stop learning. Just recently I came across a trend called the 52 Week Photo Challenge, generated by Petapixel. I found this challenge fascinating. Groundbreaking. Why you may ask? Because not only is this challenge encouraging people to self teach, but it is also motivating them to share their…

Flare

Let’s talk about the most annoying aspect of iPhone cameras, shall we? Two words: Lens. Flares. What is a lens flare, you may ask? Well, a lens flare refers to when light is scattered or flared (hence the name), usually due to focusing on a bright light source. It is definitely undesirable and unwanted. A…

Passionate

When I was young I really wanted to be a ballerina. Then I wanted to be a race car driver. I also wanted to be a nurse, a cop, a firefighter and anything else you could name was probably on my list at some point. It wasn’t until high school when I really found my…

Shutterfly

Along with my love of taking pictures, I also love to share pictures. The most common way that I share pictures is through Instagram. I have had an account for about 3 years and have posted around 1,200 pictures. That’s a few more than one a day. Some people get annoyed with how frequently I post,…

Saturation

I take all of my pictures on an iPhone. It’s not by choice. I’m just a college student that is forced to put all  of my income towards paying my tuition, so purchasing a nice camera isn’t really in the budget. Luckily, iPhone cameras are improving and there are a lot of adjustments that can…

Podcasts

This generation is such a visual generation! So much so that mediums are merging. I mean, this has been happening for some time now, but one crossover that has caught my attention recently is the fact that a lot of people who produce podcasts are now video recording them and posting them online for their fans…

Snapseed

I am not someone who frequently searches for apps of any kind in the app store. I have very limited apps on my phone and when I do download one it is usually very practical or recommended by someone. When I edit my pictures I usually just throw them in Instagram and play around with…
