    2011 National Fine Arts Merit Winner

    I've grown up in church. Born into a Christian home. But never have I been familiar with an event called "Fine Arts." It's a HUGE competition that the churches of the Assemblies of God hold every year where thousands of teens use their gifts and compete against the best in the District and the best in the Nation. This was my first and last year competing in the Photography, Traditional category and I won both at Districts and Nationals!

  • My trip to Washington DC

    My trip to Washington DC

    Things to consider when visiting DC: (1) you WiLL do a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. (2) stay at least a week. you won't get all the tourist spots and museums in a day. (3) Take the Metro, because parking in the city is mad expensive. (4) Take lots of snacks, water, packed lunches, and/or eat outside the city, because the McDonald's in the Air&Space museum alone would set you back $40.

    I wanna be a photographic beast!

    I don't like rules. I don't play too well with the seriousness of photography. I actually like to have fun. My friend told me photographing weddings is where the money is. I tried it...and I didn't like it. I got so caught up in making the picture "perfect" only to make the picture that much worse.

    Jacksonville Farmer's Market

    This is happening almost everywhere I go: "Ma'am what are you taking pictures for?" "I'm sorry you can't take pictures without the manager's permission." So I tried to shoot from the hip....not very successful with a prime lens.

  • Lowepro Fastpack 100 - review

    written by itsdebraanne on 2011-04-03

    The Review: This bag is pretty cool. I used this pack for my trip to DC. Easy and lightweight; It held most of my camera accessories, but there weren’t enough padded pockets for more lenses. You could fit one D/SLR body and one lens kit in the main camera compartment; the rest of the pockets are good for camera accessories for one camera.

  • Happy Accidents: i'm still learning multiple exposures.

    Happy Accidents: i'm still learning multiple exposures.

    Apparently, you have to decrease the ISO for the second exposure. You can't just cock the switch and expect something great. Plus, you first exposure should be bright and your second exposure should be dark...or is it the other way around?? see what i mean!

    Kodak BW400CN: setting the wrong ISO

    I bought the film without reading any reviews and thought I'd use it and make one myself. What I forgot to do, was set the ISO correctly!
