Mom and I took a girls trip up to the Biltmore in North Carolina for my spring break. I recommend it to anyone who likes really cool buildings, good food and flowers! Here are some of my shots.
These are delicious! Even my neighbor who doesn't like brussel sprouts loved them!
1 lb Brussel sprouts
3 tbs Olive oil
1 tbs Balsamic vinegar
1 tbs Honey
1 tsp Salt and pepper
1. Preheat oven to 425F
2. Cut off stems and half the brussel sprouts
3. Mix the olive oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper
4. Toss the brussel sprouts in the mix and lay out on a pan. Be sure to spread them out so they roast!
5. Leave them in the oven while stirring occasionally for 20 min
6. When done, drizzle with MORE HONEY and enjoy!
In order to successfully procrastinate, you will need two things - a reason and an idea. Madi and I were bored and unmotivated to do our homework one day, so we took matters into our own hands and decided to try a witch inspired photo shoot in the hobbit hole of her room. It was very dark, so I had the ISO up to high (which is scary high on my camera). We just tried some things and the best part is, we didn't have to study!
When I was applying for the art programs in different colleges (and even some art schools), I had to learn how to put together my first portfolio. I knew I needed about ten pieces that showed my type of work and my variety in skills. Going through all my photos, I noticed that I did not have any portraits of people.
Photography now centers around a lot of portraits and fashion. So, I knew I had to get at least one portrait into this portfolio. There were some people willing to be my model at my school, but I did not want photos of my friends. This caused me to email a bunch of pretty, and interesting people to pose for me in a teachers office.
It was dark, and I had a lamp from someones room as my light source. It was such a makeshift studio. After getting shots of a few people, this one is still one of my favorites, editing and all.
