Almost done with School/Photo challenge

Two weeks left of school. Pretty nervous! But I am also going to take a photo a day for a year plus some because I couldn't wait till the new year :) To go see these pictures go to my facebook page ( and like it. It would mean the world to me now that I'm starting to get serious about my photography.

I'm going to start posting more. For sure once school is done. I've just been so busy with school work and I made new friends! Well have a wonderful December :)

Editing Photos

Well I've now done my first family photo shoot and am very happy with the results. They came out really well and the mom begged me to look at the photos before I even edited and she was super happy with them :) It's getting to the end of the year and finals are coming up. Pretty scary but still I'm ready for next semester. Here are some photos from my first photo shoot.

Nikon D5100

So I'm trying to figure out what lens to buy for my camera. The only lens I have right now is the 18-55mm. I'm thinking of getting a 50mm cause it's on the cheaper end of lenses and I've heard good things. Any suggestions?

Knit Hood

This is my own pattern. I took my idea from this pattern. But since I don't have circular knitting needles I created my own patter. (

If you need clarification on the pattern please comment.


  • Yarn
  • Knitting needle 10mm
  • Sewing Machine (or you can hand sew with the yarn)


  • cnf- cable needle hold in front
  • cnb- cable needle hold in back
  • lf- left needle
  • *___* -repeat what is inside till end of row

What you will be making is a big rectangle. How long it is is up to you (How many you cast on and how many times you repeat the steps.)

Cast on a multiple of 14 plus 8. See Pattern.
This first part is for  where the buttons will be placed. You can repeat these steps until you are satisfied.
  1. Row 1(RS): k
This part is for the cabled look of the pattern. Repeat as much as you'd like for the length of the hood (how far back it goes).
  1. Row 1(RS): k4, *p4, k6, p4, *k4.
  2. Row 2: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4.
  3. Row 3: k4, *p4, k6, p4, *k4.
  4. Row 4: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4.
  5. Row 5: k4, *p4, slip 3 sts to cnf, k3 from ln, slip sts from cn onto ln then k3, p4, *k4
  6. Row 6: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 until you reach desired length.
When finished fold the work in half so that the right sides are facing each other. Sew one side of the work together to make a hood.

What's Up?

So my posting on here has been at an absolute minimum. Last week I had three tests and this week I have two. School is getting close to being over and I'm super nervous. Looks like I pull out this semester with four B's and a C. Not ideal but oh well.

This weekend I'm going to be doing a photo shoot and on Tuesday I'm going to go down with my man and figure out where I want to take the girls. Also probably take some test shots :) I'm pretty excited cause this is my first photo shoot ever and I think it will help me a lot with figuring out my style and what I need to work on. I think I might even go out today and take some shots. It's so pretty outside with all the leaves changing.

Sorry for not posting much this week. It's been crazy. Had my birthday and then I'm working a lot babysitting for a missions conference at my church and that along with my homework and classes...

And I think I'll be doing a process of drawing that I use tutorial. That's all I can promise because later this week I have a pumkin carving party, photo shoot, halloween parade and family bday party and also along with homework and classes. Thanks for sticking around and being patient :)

If you'd like to know what is going on with me you can follow me on twitter. I'm semi active on that =D And I will be tweeting about what is coming up on the blog =D

diy Henna Tattoo

I've heard a whole lot of diy Henna tattoos and so I decided to try one out for once. This one I found online but I did my own editing to it to make it last even longer possibly. I'll have to update this one later on to say how long it really did last on me.


  • Waterproof Mascara or Eye Liner or Lip Stain Pencil
  • Waterproof Liquid Bandage Spray

Draw your design on your skin after making sure it is clean.


Follow the directions on how to put on the liquid bandage.

And you're done :)

So I love this band. Especially in love with this song and music video. What do you think? Good night all.

Breakfast is Important

It is very important and I need to start eating better so I decided to share my smoothie recipe with all of you. It is really easy and delicious.


  • Milk
  • Frozen Fruit
  • Microwave
  • Blender
  • Ice
  • Sugar


Get your bags of frozen fruit and place in bowl. I microwave it for 45 seconds.


Once microwaved place int the blender. Put in some milk and a dash of sugar. I place some ice-cubes in mine so that it stays cold.


Place in blender and blend. Then enjoy. It's really easy and really delicious and can be done with your favorite fruits.

DSLR Camera Tutorial (ISO)

Today we will be talking about ISO which is the camera's sensitivity to light. A high ISO means lots of light coming into the camera and a low ISO means very little. For example when I'm taking pictures outside I use an ISO usually of 400. I do this because I know when I use film 400 is a good speed of film to have. The same is for a digital you just get a whole lot more range more easily. If I'm taking a picture where I want the background to be totally black but the subjects to be showing I'll use a ISO of 3200 or so. You really just have to play around with it and see how it works with different settings but once you master when and how to use the ISO properly your pictures will be amazing after all the other things you've learned from these tutorials.

Play around with all the ISO measurements and take 5 pictures that you feel are good with each one.

Next Week:
Learning how to use the exposure triangle together. (Shutter Speed, ISO, and Aperture)

Last Weeks Homework (Aperture):

Pumpkin Decorating

It's my favorite time of year. Fall. Halloween. My birthday. All these things are amazing. And I got to decorate my first pumpkin yesterday. I don't have a picture of the finished project but here are some steps to it. I hope this inspires someone =D

Oh and by the way the watercolors that I tried to use didn't really work out. And I didn't get to use the white paint cause it was all chunky.

diy Camera Strap

I have two camera straps that are both not the softest things in the world and since I'm close to going to Universal Studios I decided it was time to make a better one. I played with lots of ideas. Making a small pillow and attaching it. Making one from scratch with cushion. But my friend, Maddie, had the best idea by far. Turn a tie into a camera strap and in the process destroy one of my other ones. So here is how I did it.


  • Tie
  • Old camera strap
  • Sewing Machine


Cut out the pieces of the old strap (the two hooks and the belt loop)


First put the small end of the tie into one of the hooks and sew it together.

I wrapped it around twice so that it wouldn't wiggle around and it ended up looking really cute and like it was a tied tie.

And how I sewed it together.


Now place the big part of the tie through the belt loop and through the other hook.


Now with the big pointy end of the tie push it through the center ring of the belt loop so it looks like this. And sew it.


Go take lots of pictures comfortably!!
