365 Day Post: 85

I’m mentally exhausted and need to finish prepping my portfolio sample presentation for the job interview on Thursday. I’m wondering if I should pick up new spring semi-casual attire for the interview? I worry about that later but for today’s photo my son handed me his new socks and I had the idea to use this little lost kitty for the image. Happy Tuesday Y’all!

Tonight’s post is a bit late. I took my husband to the library to get his card. There I learned that they put puzzles together in their free time. I had a wonderful idea that would help me cope with my past but that will be for another post. Tonight’s photo is of a character figure that my son threw in my purse and I discovered it. Sitting there…begging for a photo-op.

Well…I’m hosting a ‘boys’ night. My son has a friend over, do boy things, and eat pizza. I’ll leave out the burping contest winning results (you’ll thank me). I thought it would be a great time to pull out a ninja turtle. I can do better but I thought this was cute.

365 Day Project: Day 77

I’m getting a little frustrated with WordPress and the comment section. My comments are not showing that I have them but my email is. WP is aware but not going to hold my breath on the issue being completely fixed anytime soon. Today’s photo was actually taken yesterday. I just wanted to post the kitty with the books. There was no flash used but the light from the morning sun coming in made it seem like there was. I think I was able to capture an ‘Ireland-esque’ feel for the color palette. I was really trying to capture perspective but also an image with a focal point that draws the eye. I like it but think I can do better.

This morning was mine and my son’s ‘coffee date’. This is where he gets hot chocolate and I get coffee. He was a little disappointed that I told him, ‘no toys’ as I wanted to try my hand at a ‘moody’ coffee photo or as I just learned, ‘lifestyle’ photography. I need more practice. But the barista did awesome making this look yummy.

I waited until after Friday errands to take and post the photo and I wish I hadn’t. I feel like I’m being rushed and I can’t figure out why. Tonight’s post was taken while we were out for dinner before going to the grocery store. I have a coffee date with my son in the morning then shopping for a painting project for the kiddos at our kindred’s Ostar celebration, so I’ll be busy. Pretty sure my project photo will be late tomorrow. Here we are lost kitties racing. I’m enjoying the bright color palette that these lost kitties figures offer.

I think my moods are definitely affecting my images. Or, it could be a few minutes of sunshine and warm weather. Either way, I’m feeling positive and REALLY hopeful I will land this job. It’s such a positive work environment and there’s actual teamwork! But let me get back on track, tonight’s image is of me taking advantage of the melting snow and HUGE puddles forming. Luckily, I had just the little toy figure to use. With the color palette, I was trying to capture happy or warm colors with a bright cooler hue. I was even able to capture falling water!

I wanted to get my project photo done so I can just go and lay down. There is only so much people can handle (emotional, mental or physical) and I need to numbingly lay and do nothing. I did put a little more effort in the image today though.

Take care of yourselves and happy Wednesday!

I didn’t do much in the styling of this picture. There’s much more to it than the legos that were put together. This is what it looks like when I’m functioning with anxiety and depression all while trying to seem like everything is OK. I tried to do some editing and even like the grainy vintage effect that I was able to achieve. The complimentary palette almost translates Harry Potter but not quite.

Is anyone else thrown off by daylight savings time? Or do you even participate in daylight savings in your neck of the woods? I brought a figure to work with all intentions of taking my photo early but it never made it out my bag. Tonight’s photo is more or less a kitchen helper image. I do, however, feel I need to step up my game so I’ll be doing some research into photography tips and tricks to really make the images pop. I’ve been proud so far of the photos that I’ve been able to capture but feel I can do more.

Today was a busy day for a Sunday but that’s for a different post. Today’s image is of a new art medium I’m wanting to get better at…Henna. I went the black and white route for this one because it seems to suit the image subject better. I’m running late posting this. Thanks, daylight savings time (that was pure sarcasm).

I have been super lazy. Well, I did get on the treadmill so that counts for something. This weather maker moving in is making everything dark and gloomy out and I’ve opted for looking up lego sets. My wishlist item is Hogwarts Castle 71043. Love love LOVE this set and I need the challenge and the calming effect building these sets have.

Today with it being dark I thought I would play more with lighting and using candles. My son was kind enough to let me borrow his lost kitty wizard for today’s photo. I think I’m really going outside my comfort zone and learning more aspects of lighting and trying tricks photographers would try. Thinking outside the box has been a comfort and to tell you the truth I’m going to need another 365 Day project to complete when the year is up.

I would like my local weatherman to stop using the words, ‘weather maker.’ I’m now fully annoyed with these words as there is another winter storm moving in. Yet again. Trying to get Saturday errands all done on a Friday when I’m already exhausted from work and trying to help my son feel better was just a lot to tackle. Sadly, my husband and I might have to cancel plans with the kindred tomorrow due to road conditions. But, here we are and I felt like doing some experimenting with light. I love the effect the candle gave the Roblox blacksmith. What do you think?

Today I was SLAMMED with work. It was almost as if they wanted to stress. Instead, I let it pile up as they intended, told them it will get done when it gets done, and focused on tasks at hand. I had my phone interview after work. I don’t think I will move on in the process due to my lack of skill being used where I’m at now but I’m ok with that. Tonight, I was super happy with the playful photo of the lost kitty toy. Unfortunately, the ice, snow, and windchill temps are making driving difficult. Tomorrow is going to be super busy but let us start with tonight’s photo.

The color palette I chose is obviously a custom one but how wonderfully summer-ish bright the colors are!

I have been in a slump since lunch. Maybe it’s the week of stress so far catching up? Maybe I’m not challenged enough (I kind of call BS on that)? Or maybe, it’s my soul that’s tired. I have a phone interview to prepare for and making notes for both technical questions and obvious general questions. I would like to get my hopes up but I’m going to err on the side of caution and keep more realistic.

I’ve been refreshing my coding skills and WOW! If you don’t lose it you definitely lose it. Made dinner and cake to thank the hubby for working overtime so I am wearing down. This little lost kitty image helped brighten my day. I tried choosing a monochromatic palette but wondering now if it qualifies.

I’m running so far behind but luckily I remembered to turn the crockpot on this morning. Yup, it’s that kind of day today. Tonight’s photo I went with the, ‘if I fits I sits’ mentality of cats with this lost kitty figure. The complementary color palette is bright and inviting.

Off to the next thing I’m behind on. Have a great evening Y’all!

I had a wonderful idea looking into my box of toys but it would take me into the women’s bathroom at work. A number of thoughts and doubts came into my head and I almost talked myself out of it. I thought a little longer and decided that during lunch not many people would be in there. I was right. I LOVE how this dramatic scene unfolded. I think THIS one is my favorite so far.

Coffee shop date with my younger kiddo was fun. He brought his tablet and toys to take pictures of and I was able to show him how to use the natural light that was available. His pictures turned out pretty good with the camera app that’s available on the Kindle. I went towards the moody side of things and even tried choosing a color palette that isn’t what you would think of warm, ‘coffee shop’ tones. This little lost kitty sure looks happy to get his coffee.

I learned something new today about my employer but that’s for a different post. This little guy was SUPER hard to take a picture of with the cell phone. I didn’t even care who seen me walking with it. I wanted something ominous and lurking and I think I only achieved a part of that. Still not bad for a little toy.

365 Day Project: 59

Between getting off work and picking up the kids from school I have 15 minutes to get to the coffee shop. I promised that I would buy myself an iced coffee after work and in order for me to get one I had to call ahead. I took this quick and thought, ‘why not?’ I like the style of lights that our local shop has. I wish I was brave enough to take more lifestyle images and I feel kind of exposed without one of my toys or action figures.
