PAIGE NELSON

My name is Paige.

I'm an aspiring photographer with an insatiable curiosity and an appetite for the fantastic.

This blog is dedicated to my greatest passion- photography. All of the photos on here are mine unless otherwise stated.
The Dream Sequince: Part II- Fields of Gold on Flickr.[9/52]
The second installment in my Dream Sequince series.
I had the great pleasure of shooting with Johanna who was visiting San Diego from overseas. Johanna just signed with an agency but I already know she’s on her way to making it big.
I’ll be driving to LA this weekend to attend The Wild Ones Workshop so I wanted to get this up before I left. Can’t wait to create new work with some big inspirations. <3

228/365: End of the Road on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I feel like I wear this outfit for photos too much&#8230;oops.
I get a little cranky when I think I&#8217;m going to run out of light and I had 2 minutes until it disappeared. I was setting up frantically when these two guys in a pick up pulled over and started harassing me about what I was doing. I snapped and said, &#8220;What does it look like I&#8217;m doing? I&#8217;m trying to taking a damn picture.&#8221;
Well they didn&#8217;t like that. They sped off saying &#8220;Fuck you&#8221; repeatedly. Can someone please tell me why people have such a hard time minding their own damn business? Sheesh.
Rant ends.

220/365: Where the Streets Have No Name on Flickr.Via Flickr:I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I want to reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name
I want to feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear 
Without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name
-U2
Sorry I&#8217;ve been so busy packing for my trip tomorrow. I&#8217;ll have one more photo uploaded by the end of the night and then it&#8217;s bon voyage until next Sunday!
I&#8217;ve decided to pack my cheap tripod so I can at least attempt to keep up. Excited to explore the cruise ship!
I drove around my neighborhood and spontaneously pulled over on this street..it was strangely peaceful. I&#8217;m having a lot of fun experimenting with editing lately.

218/365: Bookends on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I had a rough day the other day&#8230;the field at golden hour always seems to make me feel better. 
I swear photography is 100X better than keeping a diary.

217/365: I Love the Flower Girl on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Is that a&#8230;smile?
Flowers, golden hour and hair. Am I becoming too predictable? 
This is my first expansion with the MKII&#8230;and with vertical pictures. I finally have a sturdy enough tripod for that. :) 
Got some new props to play with!

I don&#8217;t think I&#8217;ll ever get tired of shooting during the golden hour&#8230;I hope you guys don&#8217;t either.
My pants now have snail guts all over the seat of them. -_-

I think the most difficult part of this project is being consistently creative. Creativity only comes to me in spurts. But I guess that&#8217;s part of the challenge.

190/365: Get It Wrong, Get It Right on Flickr.Via Flickr:Wind on the fields blowin&#8217; your hair
We were cold, we were cold, we were cold
We were cold, hand to hold, hand to hold
Come to the hill, got a nest to build
String and grass, string and grass, string and grass
String and grass, be the past, be the past
-Feist
Serious catch up day. 
You can&#8217;t really see the mountain clearly, but all of the trees are dead white. There was a wildfire like 10 years ago. It&#8217;s eerily beautiful.

185/365: Maybe I&#8217;m Amazed on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Today was an overall good day. :)
This shoot was so frustrating. The remote wasn&#8217;t working and the light faded quickly. Miraculously, the days when I&#8217;m about to give up are the ones when I can actually produce something decent.
No time to shoot for myself yesterday since I was at a wedding. I won&#8217;t be posting anything here, but you can check my Facebook page in a few days if you&#8217;re interested.
Tomorrow: My first article for the paper is running front page, my last day of work and MY MARK II WILL BE HERE.
 I&#8217;m not excited or anything&#8230;

184/365: California&#8217;s Burning on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I should re-title this project to &#8220;365 ways to flip your hair.&#8221; I&#8217;m trying to do more pictures with my eyes in them.
Almost got a ticket for parking in the park after 7&#8230;we got a warning instead. Security guard is crazy&#8230;I think he might have recognized me from last time. 
My friends mom is getting married today! I&#8217;m going to get some pictures. Gotta go! Have a nice day everyone. :)
Psst view large (on Flickr).

178/365: Pyro on Flickr.Via Flickr:Single book of matches,Gonna burn what&#8217;s standing in the way,
Roaring down the mountain, Now they&#8217;re calling on the fire brigade.
Named after my all time favorite Kings of Leon song. I&#8217;m listening to it right now.I BOUGHT MY 5D MARK II TODAY.
 I can&#8217;t believe I&#8217;m finally going to hold my dream camera in my hands. Making the switch to Canon after shooting Nikon for 5 years is a little scary but I&#8217;m so so so excited. Someone pinch me. :)
