tree takeovers

Photo/ www

I came across this flickr photo group – I love it! Shows how versatile trees really are… I think trees are beautiful. I love taking photos of them and I have quite a few in my portfolio. These are not my photos but the flickr group credits them to the artist!

birthday wishlisted

Photo

My birthday is next month and my mom keeps asking “what do you want? send me your wishlist!”. This has got to be the first year where I have no idea. I have a few things I could USE but nothing I am super excited for… does that make sense? Can they invent something I want before my birthday please? These are some things I had in mind:

I really could use a bigger camera bag to hold my extra lenses too…

These photoshop magnets are just great, especially considering I am using it most of my day

I did want to get a macro lens for my lensbaby… hmmm!

Any other cool things I should know about for my wishlist?? Let me know! 🙂

Reasons I love the Polaroid POGO Printer

Photo/ Technology

Although I am very passionate about art and creativity, a big part of me loves technology. If its electronic, new and interesting I want to play with it! I’ve been like that since a young age (anyone remember Casio Secret Senders? I had 2!) One of my close friends had gotten a polaroid pogo printer for Christmas only to find out that it does not work with his brand new shiny iphone. BUMMER for him – Great for me! He had needed help getting it to work, (yes even my guy friends come to me for electronics help) but since we learned it doesn’t work with his phone he gave it to me! Of course I was more than happy to give it a good home.

It’s from Polaroid, they also make versions of the camera included in it, but this works through bluetooth.

I can print from my cellphone (droid 2) or from my MacBook Pro. It’s great because you send it any JPG (even if its not a photo) and within seconds you have a picture or design you can literally stick anywhere (the paper is also sticker paper). It uses ZINK – Zero Ink Technology so you don’t have to worry about ink. Although this ZINK is not perfected yet I am hopeful that it gets better with time. The colors sometimes come out a little off and occasionally I will get lines on the photos, but there are tricks and tips they give you to not have that happen.

A summary of why I love it:
1. Its small, I can print things on the go using my cell phone
2. The pictures are not only pics but STICKERS too!
3. It works with my mac (through bluetooth)
4. Doesn’t need any ink, dont need to worry about ink running out or drying up
5. I can print any .JPG with it… even some mini artworks
6. The mini paper isn’t too crazy expensive (most at-home-printers try to charge arms and legs)
7. The photo size is 2 x 3 and although it is not common, It is a lot easier to have this around when you NEED a small picture

Florida Keys and Flickr

Photo

For my birthday as a gift I received a new telephoto zoom lens for my Canon SLR. Around mid-December I took a trip to the Florida keys and got to take some really amazing photos using my new lens. Here are some of the recent additions I made to my flickr. Many have birds because I went to visit a bird rescue site in Key Largo. (I’m a bird lover)

wedding photo collage

Photo

This September I attended my friends’ wedding. Sad they are leaving to move to Boston, I decide to make a collage for them of photos I took at their wedding. It was a beautiful September day and I took well over 100 photos. The last photo is a part of their table where they sat during the reception. Was set up with all the bridesmaids’ flower bouquets and some candles.
