I had been planning on doing a photo inspired by "Fireflies" by Owl City sometime during this project, but I didn't know how I was going to do it. Thursday my cousin Logan came over and we spent the entire day outside. It was getting late and I didn't have my picture of the day yet. Logan saw a firefly and started talking about how he and his friend's used to catch them at his Dad's house.
I asked my mom to go get a jar; I was just going to get Logan to catch some for me so I could photograph them in the jar. I managed to snap this shot of him catching them and decided it would be much better.
"Fireflies" by Owl City:
Friday I saw Pop Evil open for Crossfade at Juanita's.
It was midnight by the time Crossfade took the stage. I always love when that happens...because then I don't have to worry about what I'm going photograph for that day. I'll write about the show
sometime this week. Tuesday. (I really will. I promise.)
After the show I stayed up until 6 in the morning and then woke up at 7 to go to the lake with Brook. We didn't get home from the lake until 11PM. I was so tired. I spent most day 163 in bed. I was lazy and asked Kynley to come in my room so I could take her picture so I didn't have to get out of bed. Thankfully she was in a happy mood and agreed to let me photograph her. We decided to make silly faces.
I see other photographers do shots like this; light and dream like. I've always loved them and wished I could figure out how to make my pictures turn out that way. I finally figured it out. This was my first real try at it. At first I didn't like the photo since it is only half of my face...but I keeps growing on me each time I see it. I'm not very good at self portraits.
