so...for Christmas this year my awesome hubby gave me a Yashica Mat-124...it is so cool! It shoots "medium format" film...not too many places exist anymore that will develop it...so another Christmas present for me is that my hubby is building me a dark room so I can develop my own film!!! I can't wait! He bought me an enlarger, trays, chemicals, film, etc...I am going to love this! Here's a pic of a Yashica 124...so awesome!!!!
Alright...so it's been like FOREVER since i've been on here! Things in life have gotten a little nutty! Since i've been on here, my first photo class ended and I made it thru a second one! This go around, I guess i'll add some pics from our last assignment...that was fall foliage...these shots were taken in Glorieta, NM...my husband and I go there every year for the Festivals of Marriage! Beautiful place!
Well, last week at class our prof forgot his laptop...so we didn't get to look at all our pics. This weeks assignment is portraits...kind of excited about this one...get to do some experimenting! sorry there isn't more to update, but I haven't shot the portraits yet! Thanks for taking time to stop by!!! Toodles!
More of the pics for latest assignment! I think our prof was expecting some really "beautiful" shots of intricate detail...but to me, the rusted and old and burned stuff was more beautiful! I also totally love the little grasshopper on the last picture...old rusty hinge and a cute little grasshopper!!!! Bonus!
Well...I have finished 4 weeks of my photography class...I had heard that it was a horrid class before I even went...and after going for 4 weeks, I can understand why someone wouldn't like it...but...sadly...I am learning things! What does that say about me?!!! Apparently I don't know too much! The first assignment was "Things that interest me"...that's was a little difficult because so many things interest me, and yet I couldn't find anything to take a picture of! HA! The next assignment was "Sunrises or Sunsets" and we had to do Silhouettes...I had an awesome idea...I wanted to shoot my friend, Carissa, and her big pregnant belly as my silhouette...but the sun didn't want to cooperate that night, so we decided to just shoot some fun belly shots of her! So at least I got to do that! Our last assignment was "CityScapes and Reflections", and I posted a few of those pics! That was difficult for me as well...I didn't really understand what a "cityscape" was. But I guess I did alright, since the prof really liked my pics! Go me! The next assignment is "Doors/Windows/Doorknobs/Hinges"...this is the first time we get to crop and photoshop...so i'm hopeful...we are also supposed to be "artsy"...this makes me a little nervous! I'm going to go out and look for some cool looking stuff to shoot tomorrow w/ my friend, Susan! She is so creative! I'll love her input! Anyway...that's all I wanted to share! I just look forward to seeing what catches my eye next!
This week in photography class we had to go and shoot "CityScapes"...I wasn't sure what that meant...didn't know if we need to shoot lots of building or parts of buildings or whatever...so I did what looked interesting to me! We also had to shoot a couple of reflections! Now, these aren't that great because we aren't allowed to adjust them in any way...(i.e. no photoshop) We traveled to Stillwater, Ok last weekend so I tried to shoot some there! So the two on the bottom,spiral fire escape and top of "Old Central", are at Oklahoma State University...and then the rest are in Amarillo...now...it will only allow me to post 5 pics, so i'll just have to narrow it down to my top 5 out of the 8 I have! The shot of my reflection in the water was a little tricky to get...I was on top of a grate on the sidewalk...but the reflection of Josie is my FAVE!!! Love my girl!!!
My friend, Carissa, was helping with an assignment for my photography class...it wasn't going well, so we decided to just go ahead and get some belly shots of her! Here are a few of my favorites...Baby Gemma!
OK! I recently got a new laptop...so most of my earlier shoots are on my other laptop...tough luck since that one has gone ka-put...I really need to get it down to the computer-fixin store! I have lots of pics on that hard drive! But...the shoots I do have on here, I also like...so i'm going to share some of my favorites! The first two shots are of my fantabulous friends, The Jones'...they are the most fun and make every get-together memorable! We have nick-named these shoots as "Love Fest"...they will celebrate their 10th anniversary in November by renewing their vows...these are some of their "engagement" pics! These are my two favorite shots of them! Hope you like em!!!
So...here I am! Starting a blog about my photography! Go me! I'm going to be adding pics from photo shoots and writing about all of my fun adventures clicking away! I'm currently taking my first photography class to try and learn more about it! I don't really know much, just seem to have a knack for capturing great shots! Hope you enjoy!!!!
Hi! I'm Kelly and I absolutely love photography...what was once my hobby has now become my passion and my artistic outlet! I don't want to get bogged down w/ charging so much $ that it isn't fun anymore so if you are interested in having me shoot some pics for you, then here's the info...
Senior Pics: $50...up to 3 hours and 5 locations of your choice...
Family/Children: $50...up to 2 hours and 3 locations...
Boudoir Sessions: $50 per person for one hour photo session...you provide location (hotel room/private residence) A neat idea is to get a few friends together to split the cost of a swanky hotel room and then schedule your shots an hour apart!

With all sessions this is the only charge you will ever have...after the shoot I will edit your pics and burn them to a CD for you to keep and do with what you choose.
