Where Am I Going?

It seems that I have been MIA for a bit, but not too fear my fellow readers. I have simply moved my blog here! I have blended my After The Rayne Soaps and WishNik Photography blog into one. Please see my new post at my new site.

I Wanna Know!

So, I just wanna know, what exactly do people want as photographs?

Is it flowers?













Something vintage?









Maybe they want something big.









Or, something a little country:










What makes you want to say, you have to have it and hang it on your wall?

Inquiring minds want to know!

This week my color that I am picking is red! I love dark reds, candy apple reds and just those cool, cool reds! Here are some of my favorites!

POETeam Monday!

The color of the day is BLUE! My favorite color is runway light blue, but I don't think there is any description of that on Etsy! So, I will get to the closest prettiest blue I can find!

I'm in LOVE, I'm in LOVE!

I am sooo in love with my new camera. Although it's a bit heavier than my XTi, I will put up with it because of the fact it takes such gorgeous pictures! I have been out every day playing with it and learning more and more about it!


This is just a small version of the flower. It looks amazing at full size!


I have tried the movie feature, but unfortunately when I upload it to Studio 14, I get sound but no picture and when I upload it to CS4 After Effects, I get picture but no sound. Gotta figure out a way to merge the two or find out on either why one works and not the other. But, HD video? Ya gotta love that!

Can't wait to do portrait shoots with this!

It's All Black and White

I've decided that Mondays will be my POETeam (Photographers of Etsy) days. Every Monday I will pick a color and feature photos from our illustrious POE Team!

Since this is my first POE post, I will choose my favorite colors which are black and white. But since I was never known to conform, each of these prints has a little POP of surprise!

Enjoy!

I can't believe it's a 7D!

I finished up a cool job a couple of weeks ago. I was part of the crew on the movie Backstabber (coming Spring 2011). Although I didn't get to play with any of the cameras, I was Sound Mixer and Key Grip.

The totally amazing thing about this movie was that it was filmed in HD 1080p 24fps. Yeah, so what, you might say, but the camera they used to film the entire production was the Canon 7D!!! Excuse me? You said what?

(Director of Photography, Gary Parker, on the set of Backstabber)

Oh, yes, believe your eyes! They used the Canon 7D to film and not just one, but there were two camera units on the set using these amazing Canon's.

Now, I know there are some Nikon people that are just rolling their eyes, but I have been a Canon girl from day one and this just makes my little Canon XTi and Canon GL2 look like toys. So much so that I'm putting them up for sale just so I can buy the 7D. BTW, if any of you are looking for a Canon XTi or Canon GL2, just let me know. I think I can hook ya up!

I'm not taking this lightly either! Selling any of my cameras is just like selling a child and it would be so much easier if I could sell some of my prints instead.

I know I should have the patience of Job and just wait until I sell or save enough to get it. But, oh it's so sweet! I will be good and not jump into anything too crazy. On the plus side, if I do wait a bit the price will go down and it will be more affordable. Then I'm sure there will be a newer and better Canon that will make me rethink the whole process. Oh, I love photography......and my Canons!

Catchup Pt. 2







Whole Lotta Updates!

Man, where does the time go? I'm continuing to take photos for my 365 Photo Challenge. The problem? I have not been very good on my uploading. Instead of inundating the whole post with photos, I will split it into two!

Here they are! The past couple of weeks.

Day 45 - 46

Well, all headshots can't be great, right? There's always a blooper in there somewhere!



For my Day 46 photo, I just figured these were hanging around. Turns out they were pretty interesting to shoot!

Day 44/365 Too cold to play

Hanging outside in the 37 degree weather, which is below zero for Texans! Snapped this of a play area. None of the kids wanted to go outside! It was just too cold!

Day 43/365 It's better than nothing!

Well today was extremely cold for my taste, so I did not get out and about to take a picture.

BUT, I did take photos inside of some of my soaps! I have some new ones coming out soon and they needed product photos. For those who like chocolate, you will enjoy these new soaps!

Enjoy my picture of the day!

Day 38/365 Holes

Did you ever wonder what your life would be like if you had gone down another path? I don't really think about that. I've always said that my choices in life have made me who I am. It's fun and exciting to go down paths you've never been. Sometimes the outcome may not be what you want, but you always learn something along the way. Each of our paths is like a hole in the fabric of life. Sometimes the lessons are hard, but who ever said life was easy?

Day 37/365 Self Portrait

I've never liked being in front of the camera. It is very rare that you will find me in any of the thousands of pictures that I have at home. So, I decided to do my own personal self portrait!

In years to come, my family can say, oh yeah, I remember her!

Day 34 - 36/365 Backtrack

Whew! It's hard keeping up with the blogposts when life gets in the way! I've been good at getting my photos of the day. The hard part is uploading them and getting them out there!!! Now, it's time for me to catch up with my posts!

I've had quite a bit of fun capturing these shots. I hope you enjoy them!
