Photo on a Whim by VampireKetsuki
Photo on a Whim
:iconbjd-sparks: has a prompt of 'whim', so today while heading to the local doll meet, I took a picture of my Angel of Dream Qi, on a whim.
I set her up, and thanks to a very strong gust of wind, she leaned against the post herself, also bending one knee, and generally getting into a more natural pose, all on her own.
I saw :iconqbark:'s journal, so I figured I'd join the fray and do the whole DeviantART birthday story thingy.
I originally joined dA with a different username when I heard about it through Neopets, but I have since lost and forgotten that account (it's probably been deleted due to inactivity). I returned here after another art site which starts with an 'E' became the target of art thieves and virus-laden ads.

These four are the first four images in my account. It was an assignment from a college I once went to. I was told to do square images with those quotes on them. And that's what I came up with. I had never used Illustrator or Photoshop before so I was basically dropped into the deep end.

Through that sucky little four-room Art School, I was bitten by the photobug.

Those four are some of the first photos I took, either with a cellphone camera or with a cheapo point-and-shoot. I do want to reproduce the first and last with my good camera, but either you can't bring a camera on the ride (photo one) or they've moved the memorials around (photo four).

2008 was a year of Tragedy and a year of Joy. In May I lost my father, unexpectedly, and in September my sister got married.

I took along my SLR camera (No D, it was film). I used Black and White color process film for these photos, except the one of my parents' wedding in the frame. When my sister got the images back from her wedding photographer, everyone agreed that I had done better than she had. I didn't know yet what I wanted to do, but I knew that it was photography.

I experimented. A lot. And this is what I came up with during my experimentations.

By then I had my first DSLR, a Nikon D60, though I did still often use my cell phone camera for quick shots (I still do). I then had the idea of going back to school and going for photography this time.

These are some photos from the year before my schooling

These were a few photos from around when I started my classes, some were assignments, some weren't.

As I got into my schooling I found I had less and less time to post here, which was unfortunate but life happens. I took all sorts of photos, eventually settling that I wanted to do portraiture, weddings if possible.
