So, yes, this is late. But I legitimately took these photos on the correct date. I just didn’t upload them on time. In other words, this still counts. ; )
ALSO, _some_ people seem to think :coughmom&auntcough: that the last photos look like organs or something… Well, I apologize if they looked like that to you as well, but they are most definitely mints. : P
Alright, photos. I took these at night [no duh], and boosted up the aperture so I’d get rays of light off of the Christmas lights. Shutter speed was 30 seconds.
So, the sun was going down and I realized I hadn’t done anything artistic today. So I cleaned a mirror, dragged my younger brother outside [who happens to be taller than me now…how’d that happen, again?], and took a few shots. The pictures kind of serve a double-purpose because my photography teacher is requiring portrait shots this week. Except for the fact they all turned out a little bit dark because there was next to no available light, I liked how they turned out. [All photos are SOOC]
And now I have to submit one of them for photography class. Any preferences?
I love how you wouldn’t be able to tell ^that is a self-portrait unless I told you. Like I just did. : P
Well, 2o11 has finally arrived. It feels a bit surreal, but it’s here. Wow.
2o1o was an odd year. It was the year of my first debate tournament in which I managed to get hooked into forensics and let it obsess my brain. I developed new friendships and strengthened old ones. I traveled to new places.
Yeah, this year was just something my already writing-inadequate brain can’t adequately describe on paper.
There are some things which I regret about the past year. But I would never give it up for anything.
To all who helped bring color and laughter to this year, I thank you.
Thank you for sticking by me and encouraging me, even when I truly didn’t deserve it.
And NOW that I’ve finished with my cheesy little spiel, here are the first photos from my 365 challenge. : )
My brother got these funny straw glasses things for Christmas. So of course I had to drag him outside for some pictures.
Have a wonderful New Year, everyone. ❤
[[Caption: I panned pencils in art class. Fun stuff, no?]]
So last night at 11:30 PM, I decided I should go ahead and try to do a 365 day challenge. Basically, my goal is to produce something artistic everyday for a whole year. Knowing myself, I’m not sure as to if I’ll be able to complete it, but it’s worth a try. ; )
Most 365ers I know focus on photography, but I shall permit myself a little breathing room and allow any type of art that works for me [collages, graphics, paintings, and photography as well].
I’ll officially start on January 1st. Until then, I’ll post a few pictures of what I’ve done in the past.
Wish me luck on this. I have a feeling I’m going to need it.
