'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
I also got my first doll around this time, though she wasn't a BJD
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.
That's just SOME of my photos from my schooling. I've also had the opportunity to meet celebrities, both local and national
isn't a celebrity? Oh well...
These two are my favorite of my entire portfolio
So that's my Devious journey through the past until now. Please comment on my pics and let me know what you think.
