Birthday Photo Shoot.


I have been dying to do a fun photo shoot like all the awesome photographers I follow, especially now that I have a new and awesome camera. However...schedules and weather are not always conducive to this. This past week my friend and I had about 1.5 hours of lightish and decent weather that were both free so we went for it. Here are a few photos from the shoot that I put effects to. More to come, but please enjoy these for now!

I stumbled THIS the other day and came across this artist Emma Hack. She does some really cool wallpaper body-art, among other things.  Here are a few pieces of her "wallpaper" art that I liked:

Fourth of July.

Happy Fourth of July! This is one of my favorite holidays, so I put together a little inspiration board of patriotic flickr images I found and just looking at it makes me so happy. I love summer and barbecues, spending time with friends and family, fireworks and sparkles....oh the list goes on :) I hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend!

Color Combo.


Just a quick post to share some color combination's I have been digging lately.  I have had these stored up in my brain and though it would best to get it out on "paper".  Here is a small inspiration board I created with the base combos.  You like?

Ray-Ban Ads.

If you know me, you know I am a fan of sunglasses...and if you didn't, well you do now.  When it comes to sunglasses for me, too many is never in the same sentence.  I kid, I really isn't that extreme...I have about 5 or so pairs I switch through. (No worries though they all cost $12 or under - I know how to spend my money wisely ;)

Me in my fake Ray-Bans (the horror! - whatever):

Anywho, back to the point of this post.  I saw these ads for Ray-Ban recently on Ads Of the World and wanted to share them with you....lets take a look at them first:

OK, so what do I think. Well, at first I was a little biased - I liked them immediately just because they were for sunglasses and were colorful. That aside, I looked at them more carefully. I like the large faces that are surrounded with darkness to make the sunglasses pop. I definitely like the glowing colors around the "frames" of the sunglasses. The blurbs saying "colorize" are just ok...I get it, it is like the sunglasses are "talking" to you haha...but the font for the rest of the text is what KILLS it for me. I really like these ads a lot actually, and I even think the little phrases are cute/funny/somewhat relevant but the font choice was terrible. I am not really sure where they were trying to go with that appears pixelated to me and very amateur. So, that is what I think...take it or leave it ;) Hope you enjoyed.
