Holiday Sale

red_hat_vintage_christmasThe holidays are fast approaching, and while I love going home for Christmas, this time of year always feels the most insane. It’s not until I’m comfortably melting into my parents couch that I really feel relaxed. Each year I tell myself to buy all my gifts early to diminish that god awful “oh crap, i have zero time for this” stress. However, apparently I thrive off stress and continue to be the same old procrastinator I have always been. So kids, don’t be like me! Why not virtually pick up some things on your list today (or tomorrow, or whenever)? Please feel free to use coupon code MISTLETOEHOHO to received 30% off anything in the store. Want your purchase in time for the holidays? US residents should order by Dec.10th, and everywhere else by Dec. 2nd (this is not including Canada, you guys have more time). Discount runs until Dec. 4th (beat that Black Friday sales).

It wasn’t until I started this blog that I really felt interested in photography again. It was always something someone else did, and I thought it was fascinating, but I didn’t feel I had a place in that world. I have always felt more comfortable in front of the lens. I took a course in high school, but I really wasn’t that great. Mostly because school always bored me, and there were many constraints. I mean, this is high school, there isn’t a lot of room for artistic freedom and personal growth. After that, I kind of put away my SLR and told myself, well this is not your strong suit.

The internet is full of inspiring people. This blog has opened up another side of my creativity, next to dancing, that I wouldn’t have tapped into otherwise. Because, at the end of the day, I love having a place to share.

Matt bought me a Pentax K1000 for my birthday. I had been dying for a great SLR camera. So I did my research, and found most people raved about this one. I did a lot reading up and re-teaching myself, and then passed on that knowledge to Matt so we could shoot some images together. This here, is the first roll of film. Quite a number didn’t turn out, either because I was making a horrendous facial expression, or we didn’t quite get a harmonious aperture/shutter combo. But this is quite all right, it’s a learning experience, and one I am excited to further dive into.
