Tour of Wanderlust: Photo Sesh 2

I’ve finally caught up on all my dailyshoot  photos for the past few weeks!  For the most part it hasn’t been that big of a deal to take a photo everyday, but posting them up on Flickr has been difficult. I’ve been traveling all over the place with my Australian friend and haven’t always had a computer with me or internet access. But now that she is gone, I theoretically have more time to pursue photo shoots and/or actually post my photos daily.

 

 

 

 

My top 3 favorite photos from this collection are as follows:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love going off on spontaneous adventures. For this photo my sister and I chased a lightning storm out by Dulles Airport where we spent some time watching the storm and trying to snap a good shot. It was a challenge to set the right shutter speed and also to take the photo at precisely the right moment to capture the quick strike of lightning.

I love this photo because every time I see it, I laugh. The pairing of the two, with the goat’s head and Rose’s face and lobster hat, is definitely unusual. It’s not one of my most artistic photos, but I think it’s a contender for the funniest photo I’ve taken for dailyshoot!

I rarely turn my photos into sepia tone, but for this one I felt it was appropriate; I also needed a monochrome photo. I like how the roof line draws the viewer’s eyes across the photo. I also like the contrast of the sky with the water barrels.

“Tour of Wanderlust” : Photo Sesh 1

I was talking Colleen about all the adventures I was planning for this summer and she has decided to dub it “Tour of Wanderlust 2011.”

The “Wanderlust” part of the name is a joke from when we were trying to decide on the name for our literary magazine last fall. Someone suggested “Wanderlust” which we quickly rejected as a magazine name, but Wanderlust remained as an inside joke.

In regards to keeping up with the daily shoot while traveling, it was actually kind of difficult.  I had lot less internet access than expected. Also, didn’t have that much free time as we were constantly hopping from place to place!

I’m definitely exhausted from all that traveling around and looking forward for a short break before I join my ozzie friend Rose in NYC.

However, despite the chaos of my travels, I managed to snap some pretty good daily shoot photos. Out of the photos I’ve managed to post so far (still have about 9 to go), the only photo I don’t like is the toothbrush one. That photo was really scraping the bottom of the barrel in terms of  “I just really needed to snap  a photo, asap!”

I might be posting more photos up from my trip, but depends on how much time I have.  After I catch up to all the rest of my daily shoot, I still have to post the final Rainbow Brite Shoot up from a month ago (wait, has it really been that long?)

Also hoping to catch up with my postcard project and hoping to blog some more about my trip.

So much to do, so little time!

A week’s worth of Daily Shoot photos

I really like this past weeks daily shoots! I actually remembered to take them the day they were assigned (always a plus!) and they are all so different which is cool.

 

I think the biggest reason why I like them all is because they perfectly seem to represent each day I took them. Normally that doesn’t happen.

These aren’t picture in the actual order I took them  but if we go through the list:

Friday– Computer (had computer issues and thought my computer was tostitos toast!)

Saturday- Fake Mustache one (my friend fell asleep before we were about to go out so I pretended to draw on her to wake her up)

Sunday- Bubble Boy (friends came over for dinner/ studying and then we took a study break to blow some bubbles.)

Monday– action photo (sister came down for a presentation I gave at Kemp Symposium and then she put on a mask I got in this really fab book about vampires)

Tuesday- Bunny photo (went to Passover Seder at my Roomie’s house and then her mom gave us all Easter basket too– They have jewish/catholic household, best  celebrations of the 2 religions :)

Wednesday— Sad Karen (SO MUCH HOMEWORK TO DO IT IS RIDICULOUS. Hence the all caps and the sad face D: )

Thursday– Blue Shoots (last day of classes ever since I’m a senior and I’m really going to miss all my good friends at UMW– it was nice to spend time with them AND work on a real project 😉

 

Let’s see what magic I can come up with in terms of taking photos during finals week! Wish me luck girls and boys….

Blue Rainbow Brite Shoot

I just got my blue Rainbow Brite shoot! The daily shoot for Thursday (ds522) was water themed, so I decided to go ahead and take Blue Rainbow Brite Photos!

Now I just need to get the colors: purple and indigo.

In the interest of time I might combine these two colors because they are basically the sameish, right?….

Anyways, my ultimate goal is to do a massive shoot during finals week in which I get all my rainbow brite people together (e.g. Karen, Elena, Colleen and of course Megan and the other color people not yet chosen). We also might have a surprise extra person/color in the photo too 😉

Tonight I was going to use Aliyah as my other Blue person, but we had some communication issues. Instead, Karen (who was Red Dawn) graciously stepped up to the plate. However, I am hoping in the final shoot I can use Aliyah for Blue.

I took 66 photos and here are the 3 best ones:

my favorite photo of the shoot!

Rainbow Brite Color Shoots

I’m on a quest. That’s right, a quest.

Ever since Daily Shoot decided to make the shoot of the day the color yellow, I’ve decided to make Megan Mc my Rainbow Brite Model child.

What does this mean exactly? Well, I want to re-imagine Rainbow Brite as Megan and take photos of her and all her Color Kids Friends.

So far I’ve gotten Yellow (although no Yellow sidekick so I might have to re-do that one unless I count the Croc in the photo as her sidekick), Red and Green.

Now I’m on quest
