-PASSION FOR FLASHIN

THROUGHOUT MY LIFE I WENT THROUGH VARIOUS PHASES OF THINGS I ENJOYED DOING FROM DRAWING, POETRY, DESIGNING CLOTHING, CULINARY ARTS & EVEN DANCING. ALL OF THE ABOVE WHERE THINGS I ENJOYED DOING AND SOMEDAY HOPED TO MAKE THAT HOBBY INTO A PROFESSION, BUT OF COURSE ONE BY ONE I GREW OUT OF THOSE STAGES. THERE ARE TWO THINGS I LOVE DOING AND CAN NEVER SEE MYSELF GETTING TIRED OF, WHICH IS PHOTOGRAPHY AND GRAPHIC DESIGN. WHEN I WAS YOUNG I WOULD STEAL MY MOTHERS DISPOSABLE CAMERAS AND REALLY SET MY BARBIES UP FOR A PHOTO SHOOT, I NEVER GOT TO SEE THE OUT COME BEING I WAS SCARED MY MOM WOULD FIND OUT I STOLE THEM SO I ALWAYS THREW THEM AWAY LOL. AS I GOT OLDER I KIND OF SHY'D MYSELF AWAY FROM CAMERAS BECAUSE I ALWAYS THOUGHT I CAME OUT SILLY IN PICTURES UNTIL ONE DAY MY MOTHER GOT HER FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA, WHICH MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN MINE. . .AND SINCE THAT DAY I NEVER PUT IT DOWN. I WOULD SPEND HOURS IN MY ROOM TAKING DIFFERENT ANGLES, CHANGING UP THE LIGHTING AND EVEN TRYING TO PERFECT POSES. AFTER BUT SO LONG I FINALLY GOT THE HANG OF IT.



IT WAS LIKE AFTER A WHILE, I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO TRY TOO HARD TO MAKE A PICTURE COME OUT EXACTLY HOW I WANTED IT, IT WAS LIKE SECOND NATURE TO ME. THEN ALONG CAME THE BIG ERA OF THE INTERNET, WHICH WAS PRETTY CONVENIENT BECAUSE NOW INSTEAD OF ME TAKING PICTURES JUST TO PRINT THEM OUT AND PUT THEM ON MY NOTE BOOK I WAS ABLE TO TAKE PICTURES AND SHARE MY LITTLE TALENT WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD. I STILL HAVEN'T EXACTLY GOT THE PROFESSIONAL CAMERA IVE ALWAYS WANTED JUST FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT I'M TERRIBLE WITH SAVING MONEY AND BECAUSE THE ONE I WANT IS ABOUT $5,000; SUCKS FOR ME. DON'T GET IT TWISTED THO, I CAN MAKE A 10 MEGA PIXEL DIGI PIC LOOK LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF A VOGUE MAGAZINE . WELL, MAYBE NOT VOGUE BUT ID AT LEAST SAY COSMO GIRL MAGAZINE LMAO. WEEKEND AFTER WEEKEND ME AND MY FRIENDS WOULD TURN THE CLUB INTO A PHOTO SHOOT AND IF IT WASN'T THE CLUB IT WAS SOMEWHERE THAT THE SCENERY WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO COMPLIMENT OUR OUTFITS. I SWEAR I THINK IVE TRIED ALMOST EVERYWHERE FROM GRAFFITI WALLS, PARKS, BEACHES, RANDOM SPOTS IN THE CITY AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT EVEN PUBLIC BATHROOMS. REGARDLESS OF WHERE, THEY ALL CAME OUT IMPECCABLE!






WHAT CAN I SAY, I JUST LOVE CAMERAS. THAT SAYING
"A PICTURE IS WORTH 1,000 WORDS" HAS NEVER BEEN SO MEANINGFUL TO ME UNTIL ABOUT A FEW YEARS AGO. IF I SIT ON MY PC AND LOOK AT ALL THE PICTURES IVE TAKEN OVER THE YEARS THEY ALL HAVE A STORY BEHIND THEM, PRICELESS MEMORIES CAPTURED IN TIME THAT ILL NEVER GET BACK BUT WILL ALWAYS BE REMINDED BECAUSE OF A CAMERA. SO WITH THAT SAID, I HAD MYSELF A LITTLE MINI SHOOT OVER THE WEEKEND WITH MY COUSIN WHO SEEMS TO BE PICKING UP ON MY PICTURE WHORE HABITS. SHE SUGGESTED WE SHOULD GOTO THE TRAIN TRACKS TO TAKE PICTURES AND AT FIRST I WASN'T EVEN TOO BIG ON IT , BUT IT ACTUALLY WORKED OUT WAY BETTER THAN EXPECTED. HERE'S A FEW SHOTS WE TOOK








PLEASE EXCUSE BLOGSPOT FOR SUCKING ALL THE QUALITY OUT OF THESE RESIZED PICTURES, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA. WE LITERALLY STOOD OUT THERE SHOOTING FOR A GOOD HOUR. IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE I HAD SNOT RUNNING OUT MY NOSE AND MY FINGERS WERE LIKE ICICLES SO WE DECIDED TO LEAVE, BUT TRUST IF IT WAS A WARM SUMMERS DAY WE WOULDA BEEN THERE FOR MUCH LONGER. AFTER THE SHOOT WE WENT BACK TO THE CRIB, HAD SOME CHINESE AND SOME UNEXPECTED FAMILY DRAMA. HECTIC, CONFUSING, COMPLICATED BUT ALWAYS ENTERTAINING FOR THE MOMENT LOL. LUCKILY AFTER THAT WENT DOWN SOMEONE VERRRRY SEXY CAME TO VISIT ME AND I GOT TO SPEND THE NITE LAID UP IN MY BED, NICE AND COZY SPOONING FOR THE NITE [JUST SPOONING]. I WAS SOUND ASLEEP BUT EVERYTIME I GOT KISSED ON MY NECK OR BACK I WAS PLEASANTLY WOKEN UP, FUCKIN ROCKIN [;
SO THAT PRETTY MUCH SUMS UP MY WKND, I DIDN'T INCLUDE THE PART ABOUT THOSE TWO APPLE MARTINIS AND THREE SHOTS OF PARTON FRIDAY NITE THAT PUT MY ASS DDOOOOWWWN, BUT I THINK ME AND MISS SONNY HAVE ENOUGH PICS FOR THAT NITE TO COMPENSATE THE EXTRA FONTING HA HA [;

STAY POSTED<3

VERY nice photos!! you do capture the essence of it, and its TOO many people think that just because they can pick up a digi and snap that they're instant photogs or models, but I can see the beauty in yours! Keep it up!!! You can freelance and do events like weddings, baby showers, ect for a nomial fee, ya know, build a portfolio, ect... I kno a couple of people who does that and its well worth it in the end!
