Photober

October 1st marks the first day of Photober!

I’m going to leave a sticky post for the month! If this works out I’ll keep doing it for the rest of the year.

I’m just going to keep adding to the same post every day.

October 8th – “In My Cup”

 

 

Photo Diary – Bisexual Visibility Day

Hey everyone, I know this is a few days late. I didn’t really have time to post/I also didn’t want to spam posts constantly all weekend. Today I’m posting the one photo that I skipped a couple weeks ago, the theme being “You”. I’m not really sure what happened to it, something in syncing this photo messed it up? I had a different thing in mind but it failed, so I ended up using this one. I felt that it would go hand in hand with the next one I’m posting. Saturday was Bisexual Visibility day. I decided to post an overlay I created over the photo of me from before because I am bisexual. I wanted to share a little of my coming out story to demonstrate why Bi Visibility is so important. I didn’t really know I was bisexual until over the past like year or so,maybe longer. In fact, I don’t necessarily think I always have been, even though I probably have been for longer than I’ve realized. Because of the fact that I felt I wasn’t “born this way” I didn’t feel like a valid member of the LGBT community. Like, maybe I was going through a phase or something. It took a lot of soul searching and lot of reading on bi communities before I was comfortable saying it out loud. It took awhile for me to realize that sexuality is fluid. Just because I never thought of women in that way in the past doesn’t change what I feel right now. Before I figured all that out, I was afraid to say I was bi because I was afraid I wouldn’t be taken seriously by either gay or straight or otherwise people. While I’ve yet to actually encounter that, I know that bi erasure is a problem in the LGBT community, and that’s not okay. So I’m just here to say if you are bi or pan or otherwise, you are real, you are valid, and you do matter. Love you. ♥

Photo Diary – Owasippe Camping Trip 2017

Hello all! I’m uploading my entire batch of photos from my camping trip last weekend! Honestly, some I’ve edited and some I didn’t bother to. You can click on any of them to make them larger and click through the full images. I’m putting them all in thumbnail form so this post doesn’t get too bogged down.

But anyway, I had an amazing time with my friends and I can’t wait to go back!

Photo Diary – The Next Bunch

I’ve severely fallen behind on my photos, and then I went on a trip. I’m using my trip to catch up because I took a bunch of photos.

But here’s what I have in the meantime.

Photo Diary – A New 365

I started a 365 Photo a Day project again. I never stick to anything I start but we’ll see how it goes. I found prompts for the next few months to help out. In October I will be doing “Photober” (you like it? I made that up.) while my friend does Drawloween! Here’s the first week of photos. I post them every day to my Instagram so be sure to follow me there. I’ll try to remember to post a batch every week here. If you are following my Instagram, there might be lag in photos over the weekend as I will be in Alabama to visit my brother. If I use my phone to take the photos I’ll post them right away, but if I use my camera I can’t upload until Monday night as I don’t have a laptop anymore.

If you want to participate in “Photober” with me, here’s the list I’m using!

Photo Diary: By The Light

When inspiration hits you while you’re helping your lovey fix your car, you just have to roll with it. I wanted to play with the natural source of light available, which in this case was one of those portable work lights and the light from the garage. Mechanic-

Since I can push the ISO a little more on my new camera I was able to pull this off with as little noise as possible.

As far as enhancing the photo in shop, I really only messed with the light source and added some smoke for dramatic effect. I think it turned out cool for a spur of the moment shot.
