Sam. 19 years old. I'm just a girl with a spinning imagination who is madly in love with her camera. Photography has quickly become my passion, having sparked from what was once a creative hobby. I'm pursuing this wonderful art in college and hope to only go far with it.

For my studio photography class, I was assigned to find ten images that inspire me and so I resorted to Flickr, a place where I have been drawing inspiration from many photographers and artists for some time now. The photographers and owners of these images from top to bottom are: Vilde Indrehus, Sarah Haley Stewart, Aurélien Buttin, Cameron Bushong, Stephen Criscolo, Brian Oldham, Rosie Hardy, Molly Lichten, Anahita Paul, Alexandra Cameron.
Had a fun date at the zoo with my boyfriend last week! I thought that picture of him and the sharks turned out really cool. Afterwards we set my camera up on a tripod and took some “selfies” together because we don’t have many nice pictures together.
I’d really like to start more photo commissions and I’m hoping to shoot more portrait/couple sessions in the near future.
Shot with my friend Hannah the other day at a nearby trail!
I also created a really short time lapse video of my morning on the beach. If I had thought that I was going to make this video as I was taking the pictures, I would have done it much nicer, I think. When I was snapping the photographs I was merely playing with the high speed continuous shooting mode and testing out just how fast my new camera worked.
But as cliche as it is, I still think the video is cool. You can see the seagull that I was stalking down the beach fly away from me hahah…

Been away in Ocean City, MD for the past few days, enjoying a short vacation with my family and my boyfriend. I brought my new camera along, (actually I don’t really think it ever left my sight) but I didn’t find myself entirely inspired to take pictures. I don’t know if it was the crowdedness of it or the tourist aspect of the place that made it less picturesque to me… but whatever the case I didn’t take very many photos. But I did find some quiet moments to shoot, such as the sunset over the quiet bay or the ocean in the early morning before families crowded the beach.
This style is just something different I decided to play around with… I know it’s been done before but the pictures didn’t seem too exciting to me on their own.
Finally got my new camera today! Purchasing this was not easy, especially not with the money I make as a cashier at a grocery store. But I’ve been saving forever and it’s finally here! I only had a chance to test it out for a few hours before I had to go to work, but I am absolutely in love with it. The pictures it takes are so clear and beautiful and I love the flip out screen so I can see myself if I’m taking self portraits or photos of myself and others using a remote.
I’m only a little bit excited about it… Okay a LOT, more than a little.
Editing is always my favorite, and it’s been a while since I’ve taken such intricate photos that require hours and hours of editing and stitching photographs together to create something much more complex. I miss it and hope to get back to it soon. So for now, here are some of my favorite before and afters of photos I’ve taken in the past!

I love shooting (obviously), but editing is my favorite part of the process… It’s where I get to make my photos come to life the way I imagine them in my head. A good camera can only get you so far. Most of the “professional” photographs you see take much much more than the click of a button.
