New Camera!

Wednesday, December 30, 2009 § 2

I got a new camera for Christmas! A Canon Rebel XSi! I love it, and hopefully the pictures that I take will get better too!

This is me right before I went sledding with my little brother, and this is a picture I took goofing around with the spider-plant in my room (which I planted during 3rd grade science class).

And for good measure here’s another picture of the angel figurine I posted about back in September. I was chatting with a friend online and she challenged me to go take a picture right then (around 10pm), edit it and post it online. I rigged up my desk lamp for lighting and I really like the way it turned out even though there’s some noise (it’s from my old camera).

I hope everyone has a fantastic new years eve and a great new years!

Double Exposure

Friday, December 11, 2009 § 2

I took these two photos over the summer, and today I overlaid them to make them into a sort of faux double exposure (two images taken on the same piece of film) using photoshop. I really liked the two photos, but they were both pretty boring individually.

Now that they’re combined, I feel like there’s a cool sense of movement in the photo which wasn’t there before. Then I added a vignette to the edges to give it even more of a film feel.

I’m thinking about submitting this to my school’s literary and photo magazine, but I feel like it might seem a little weird, thoughts? Any critiques or comments are always welcome.

On an unrelated note, only one week until winter break =].
