NOTE: THIS IS POSTED A DAY LATE SO THIS IS A DAY IN THE LIFE POST FROM YESTERDAY (OR AUGUST THE 31ST) JUST TO BE CLEAR. ❤
I have done this before, but it was many years ago. I have a photography website! I wanted more organization, and less clutter on this blog. So I have a new website. I have been tinkering with the design of the site, and have finally reached a semi-shade of normalcy. If you want to visit Lucillian Photography (yes, that’s its name 🙂 ) you can click HERE.
What do I mean by ‘more organization’? Well, on here–yes I have categories. But…I just love the fact that you can go on my other website and look at a special page for a certain genre of photography. It’s really handy. AND there’s the added bonus of using slideshows instead of individual images. 🙂 I like slideshows.
So, what should you do if you’re following this blog and enjoy seeing my (feeble) photography attempts? One of two things:
- You can go visit my blog (Lucillian Photography) and follow it. OR…
- You can just get the posts on this website announcing new photo shoots and THEN go check it out without following the blog. (I will be posting photography updates, without the actual photos on this blog. And I will also be providing the link to the posts in the posts here.)
And that’s my first attempt at a logo. I like it for now, and think it’ll fit the bill for right now. Thank you all for being so encouraging and thoughtful in your interest in my photography thus far. If I ever actually make it to photographer status, I will always appreciate the feedback I recieved early on (now 🙂 ).
I was so thrilled when I woke up and saw…a mist/fog! A thick mist, too. I ran out, stuff sticking to my bare feet- and snapped some quick photos. Then I was told to come upstairs to do yoga with Mom and H. I was literally begging the mist not to go away while I did yoga. And happily, the mist remained. I went out and took more pictures. And my feet were still bare, FYI 🙂 .
The first wave…
Landscape of the fog…
The second wave…
Well, I hope I didn’t bore you TOO severely. I actually think this was one of the shortest photoshoots I’ve ever done. But I also think I got the most pictures I’ve ever gotten out of this one. Haha…I didn’t even post ALL of the pictures. 😉
So, have any of you ever ventured into a supposedly ‘yucky’ day to take photos?
Do you enjoy when fog/ mists come?
Which of the pictures in each category (first wave, landscape, 2nd wave) is your favorite?
What kind of photography would you like to see more of?
p.s. Soon I’m going to post pictures I took on another photoshoot. That post will be 1,000 (just kidding) different views of mom’s engagement ring. I probably should’ve borrowed dad’s wedding ring too…but oh well.
Don’t get excited!
What a way to start a post… I just don’t want anyone thinking this is ACTUALLY anything close to a real engagement session. I don’t have any models for these photos. All I have is the engagement ring (which is mom’s, no I don’t have an engagement ring 🙂 ). But I have always had a fascination for taking ring photos. I used to have a ring I’d photograph all the time. Now…I borrow someone else’s.
Note: some of the following images received minimal editing.
So, do you ever do fake engagement photos?
If you were to do a real couple, what poses would you do?
Which of these photos do you think turned out the best?
Thanks, Mom– for letting me borrow your ring. 🙂
On October 24th 2003, Josiah Matthew Figura was born.
And that is why I did this photoshoot. Because my younger brother is now a teenager. He’s 13. And so at 4:00 we headed outside…
Happy 13th birthday, Josiah! I enjoy watching you grow up…the next step is for you to pass me up in height. I hope it’s not anytime soon 😦 🙂 !
This is where we get into the fall mood. Whether or not the weather is fall feeling to you, the leaves are falling–and to me that equals fall. 🙂
And so I went outdoors to take a few snappings. I took some ‘timies’ (my way of getting around having to call them selfies, I set the timer and they’re way more professional than holding the camera out in front of you.) of me…because I was model-less. Although I had Hank, who insisted on photobombing the few pictures that actually turned out.
And here’s a photo of me, one of the very few that worked–thanks to Hank. I love you, BTW, Hank! 🙂 (But NOT because you photobomb all my pictures!)
I thought this turned out to be a neat blurring. And I LOVE the bokeh lights in the background. And I like the orange earrings my lil’ sis Ellie made me…very good fall color.
Like I said, this is an irregular post. I don’t make a practice of taking ‘timies’ or ‘selfies’ and posting them. But I am committed to trying different types of photography…and the self-portrait is one of them. And mind you, the self-portrait isn’t the easiest to do (especially if you don’t have a pro camera and a tripod).
Thanks for letting me ramble on and show you these pictures. I always enjoy seeing them on my blog because they look so much nicer.
