long exposure of the sky on new years eve!
taken today with the 50mm 1.2! The precision and sharpness on this thing absolutely blows my mind. And it’s only day two.
Guess what came in ‘le mail todaaaay!
I’m renting a 50mm 1.2 for the next two and a half weeks for a wedding this weekend, and already it. is. incredible.
I love my 50mm 1.8 to bits, but this… This is the grand Puma or lenses.

I actually didn’t go to school for it! I learned everything I know from a group of really talented photographers on Flickr. It was a really great community to get started with because everybody there is learning from each other and willing to help. Some of the best that I learned from were Zack Ahern, Steven Sites, Rosie Hardy, Lauren Withrow, Katelyn Downs and Whitney Justesen (All f whom are seriously worth checking out). I also found some great photographers who based their business around the internet and blogging, like Jasmine Star. I don’t know how helpful that was, but I hope it was okay!
A sneak peak of one of Marina’s senior portrait sessions!
Last night on the way home, there was the most amazing sunset. I ran into my house and gathered my remote, tripod and camera, and for the first time in months, went on my roof for self portraits. I learned everything I know about photography through a wide group of artists on flickr who specialized in self portraiture, so naturally that’s the work I started out doing. many dramatic pictures of myself and 3 failed 365 projects later, here I am. It was nice to go back to that place for a while last night.
Self portraits will always be healing.

Sometimes I just really wish I weren’t so cool.
It. Is. Chilly.
Florida is chilly.
I’m so happy! This usually doesn’t happen until December! I celebrated the gorgeous weather with a pumpkin spice latte. And now my tummy is spicy and warm and happy and I will go sit outside until summer comes again.
Our neighborhood cat (who’m I’ve appropriately named Barbara) is lovin’ it outside, too. :)
A sneak peak from the second wedding last weekend! You could tell the groom was a photographer, because the location he chose was a dream come true to work in.
