hair today, gone tomorrow

Blog-3 Blog-2… not mine. yeah RIGHT.

sadly, dru and epic hair + shake-faces are coming to an end. but, the short hair is a welcome change and he’ll look awesome either way!

in other news… i may have slept in (i did) and unintentionally (honest) shaved my 6th last day of class completely off the map. (bad student. sorry pierre!)

seriously though, only 5 more days of driving back and forth to school say WHAT. and tomorrow is a holiday. and the sun is shining! the best.

much love,

skona beach

Blog-1 Blog-4on the few hours break i had one day last week we ventured down to skona house, and while i didn’t get many photos i added a good handful to my beach glass collection. (so much cobalt blue! so worth it.)

guess who’s countdown has reached single digits?

much love,

film & fourth year

Dru-1 Horses-1 Me-1a few favorites from a roll of film i’ve had in my camera for a few months now! dru actually just bought a scanner, so now we’ll be able to have all of our negatives uploaded and in a much better quality than the discs we’ve been getting from walmart. much better!

on another note… my fourth year project has been ordered!

(panic totally ensued typing that).

but seriously, that’s it, that’s all, its done, and there’s no making changes now. such a weird feeling! i just need to stop second guessing choices in the mean time. it was hard to narrow down what i’ve been up to and i would never be able to include everything that i would like (i’m a bit nonstalgic for shake face right now) but my teachers and few friends i’ve had to get opinions from have been supportive of what has been put together. so, i think i’m going to be really happy with it! only 29 days until the show, and the days to no more classes count… 16!

hope everyone’s having a good week!

much love,

double exposure: photoshop edition

LR Double Exposure-1i’ve been curious for a while what it would be like to start doing manual double exposures, so on a fairly spur of the moment trip to st. john’s this weekend to see my sister i took advantage of the 8 hours travel time both ways and tried my hand at them.

i’ll admit i’m pretty much photoshop illiterate, so i edited both images in lightroom first and them imported them into photoshop, played with opacities, reimported the final images to lightroom and fixed minor details and clarity. thoughts? it still doesn’t touch film (duh, considering film is the best) but i think it might be interesting all the same.

hope everyone had a good weekend!

much love,

candace

my turn

candace-1my grad photo time had to come too, and luckily it was painless! dru was awesome enough to shoot it for me yesterday and it ended up turning out to be quite a sunday.

first i had breakfast cooked for me, then we packed up to spend the day in gros morne for a photo drive, then i was proud of myself for remembering to bring rubber boots considering it was raining, then i realized said rubber boots were actually two different sizes but its no big deal because my right foot just enjoyed the dry extra room. then we drove home to cooked dinner and then thoroughly enjoyed a new episode of the walking dead to which i passed out cold before it ended. did i just admit that? sorry darryl. i’ll drool over you later this week, promise!

apart from some tire bustage, yesterday was seriously the best though. and as someone who would rather remove limbs than have her photo taken, i kind of maybe sort of love this photo (just a liiiiiiittle bit) because while i doubt many people will notice, it was taken as far from school as possible ; ) and on such a great day!

and for GRAD.

as in graduation.

in case you didn’t know yet.

(except that you did.)

much love,

twenty-thirteen

Dress-1 new years posts are pretty overwhelming.

so much happened last year that i could have never predicted, including (but not limited to) booking and completing a destination wedding for some awesome people with dru, booking more photo jobs for this year than i can count on two hands, getting the opportunity to work with a few photographers and professors that have all helped so much with how i photograph/develop art, having a photo go absolutely viral, buying my first car, and entering my last year of university (finally). whew!

which means…

this year i already know that i’ll be graduating! (i actually get to stop paying tuition and keep my money from here on out? no more 8:30am classes? I DO NOT BELIEVE IT. sign me up. 98 days and counting). but as far as everything else goes, i can’t even venture to predict whats up. i don’t think I would want to though. wouldn’t that just stomp the fun out of it?

life is seriously nuts.

much love, and a huge happy new year!
