First, I took the blog down for about a week while I edited the website some and added a new layout! I decided to remove my old posts. There were hundreds of posts dating back to around 2006 from old websites and I just wanted a “fresh” start. I removed everything before 2013, but I did move all of the old posts to /old. I also took down the artwork that contained my school work from when I was a design student, instead they are located on their own page and only projects I really liked doing/liked the outcome of are displayed. And lastly I moved the visitor page to be under domain, there’s only smilies still on the visitor page and it may just remain that way so didn’t see the point in it’s own page I am also very happy with how this layout came out, and if you keep refreshing it or visit different pages the image on the left changes I used a theme I found as the base and then just edited it to my liking. There are currently 4 different headers and below is a look at all of the ones currently available, each one represents something I like.
Laptop/Coffee on a desk, beach (with a mermaid’s tail!), chibi me w/ things I like, chibi me as Batman.
I have a few more ideas for headers to add and will add more in the future. In other news the DSLR that I mentioned in my last post got here on Tuesday! I took a few pictures outside (below) and am excited to take more. The plan was to go to the beach on Friday to take photos but I’ve been sick since Tuesday and have not been able to go. I’m hoping to start feeling better by Monday so that I can do that.
Picture of a rose from the rose bush in the front yard.
Orange in the front yard, climbed underneath it to take random shots.
Another sky photo, you can see the orange tree on the right side in the photo.
I love my DSLR (Nikon D5100) and plan on taking SO many pictures and hope to actually blog and actually share those photos
First off I fail at posting I’ve been busy working on my WoW blog, YouTube channel, and the World of Warcraft podcast I started earlier this year with friends! And of course applying to jobs and doing freelance BUT ANYWAYS!
One thing I have been into for just as long as graphic/web design is photography. I got my first digital camera my senior year of high school. It was a big and bulky Kodak, but I loved it. My boyfriend at the time also was into photography and he did a senior project on it which involved taking photos of me (modeling is awkward, haha) which led to me learning more about it. Over the years I’ve gotten new digital cameras but never had anything really “fancy”.
At FSU I took a photography class that used a SLR but we digital edited the photos (after scanning them into the computer, which was a pain) which got me more into coming up with series and deciding on how to shoot things (most photos can be seen on my deviant art page). Since then I’ve wanted a DSLR. Right now I use my iPhone to take photos and post on instagram, but I wanted something more. About 2 Summers ago I entered a contest on Raptr and I ended up winning! I won a Wii U which came out back in November, but months passed and I didn’t hear anything from them. I sent them an email and got a quick reply, and they couldn’t figure out what happened. So instead of sending me a system they just gave me a $300. I’ve been eyeing a DSLR for about a year now and have been saving up recently to get one, so this giftcard came at a perfect time! I plan to get the Nikon D5100 I already bought a camera bag last month on Ebay!
I’m really excited to get the camera but will probably wait few weeks to make sure it doesn’t go on sale or anything. I have several ideas for photos already and will of course post them all here But until then here are some I’ve taken over the last few months on my Iphone!
Taken in Florida outside of a shopping center. Just adjusted the brightness/darkness, colors were not changed.
This was taken on the drive from South Carolina to Florida, don’t worry I wasn’t driving!
