it's very bizarre, some of the photos i've taken have been moved to 'scrap' which is weird because i try not to put things that i consider 'scrap' on here... how do i edit them back to "un-scrap"?

this is annoying- i see things like snapshots and other artwork of low caliber (i would not even say artwork) and it's not in the scrap section... i dont think my photos should be there.

go subjective policing...

how do you make still life look like there is feeling or emotion to it? i mean, things not portraits of people... does this question make sense? if you can respond with experience or other artistic examples i'd be grateful.

i am up at this ungodly hour because i am going to to *try* to get into a B&W photography class. on saturdays, yes.

woowee! i hope i can get it. at the time of enrollment it was already closed, so here's hoping that today's beautiful morning showers deter people from coming.

keep your fingers crossed for me.

i'm listening to catpower right now, 'names'.  the melody is melencholy, slow- just how i feel today. i rode my bicycle in the rain and was drenched after riding the 2.5 miles in heavy mist/ light rain.  

i havent been home in over a week, save to change clothes and check mail. i was out of town (camping in yosemite was divine) and staying with my boyfriend.  i feel like i lack a balance between work, my personal life (love, health, hobbies), and my creative life.

this unbalancedness is nothing new to me- i always have great enthusiasm for things new or exciting and i end up being spread thin everywhere. i dont know where to place myself, or be.

things i thought were in place have been jostled and now, i feel like i need to just back off and set a good boundry by admitting to myself that i cant do the one thing that will askew my progress in things. sad, i want to though.

online journaling is bizarre. i am admitting my own icky feelings to this ginormous, annonymous forum when in real life, it's difficult to say to people i confide in.

let's hope i am not a drag for when crampthatbites visits tonight.
so, i keep ~trying~ to figure out my camera because i would like a newer one, but only as a reward to figuring out buttons and do hickeys.

are there any books or manuals anyone recommends to improve technique?
mucho thanks to crampthatbites for posing for me.

she is a really sweet girl and i felt quite special having been her 'first.' woo hoo!
thanks for checking my gallery out, everyone. =)
interested in a print?

i am thinking $17 (my favorite number)
for an 8x10 or 11x14, including shipping.

let me know if you are interested:

i am asking all my friends for theme ideas. finally getting back in the photography saddle and i want to try working in series- for the practice of it. it could be an idea, color, phrase, ect.

also: LIGHTS! i am not ready to buy real lights yet, so i am wondering what cheap and neat lighting solutions you have come up with.
any feedback would be spectacular. constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.
I was experimenting with the timer last night and it was beyond frustrating, but I think i got some fun stuff.
Tamara the camera is going to become my best friend...eventually.
need more time for everything...
