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.

This camera is AMAZING. I have never been able to achieve sharpness in a photo like this until now. I am in love.
I had to do something simple because the remote I have isn’t compatible with the MKII. I ordered a new one which should be here tomorrow. I had to take this with the 10 second timer…which sucks. I also need to go tripod shopping this week since my flimsy little one doesn’t have enough support.

175/365: Grow Up and Blow Away on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I took a mini vacation to LA on Wednesday to go to Six Flags and Hollywood (for the first time ever). Getting away for awhile was exactly what I needed. I only have one week of work left so I really need to buckle down and find something else. Do I really have to grow up?
The mailman walked up as I was shooting this and had himself a good laugh. I guess I did look pretty silly sitting on the pavement with all those bubbles. If anything, I think I make people’s days when they see me shooting because of how unusual it is. At least they have something to talk about over dinner, right?
I’ve been keeping up…will upload as I finish editing.

171/365: Your Protector on Flickr.Via Flickr:She left a week to roam
Your protector’s coming home
Keep your secrets with you, girl
Safe from the outside world
You walk along the stream
Your head caught in a waking dream
Your protector’s coming home
Coming home

Making up for that week I missed. Here’s my first idea from yesterday.

My body is going to punish me tomorrow for staying up so late to edit this. Closed at work tonight and going in again tomorrow morning…guh.
I like re-using props for the sake of seeing how much I’ve improved since I started…throw back Day 4.

This is my most extensive expansion ever…it nearly crashed my computer when I tried saving it. I almost had a heart attack since I spent so damn long editing. -_-
I’m holding my Diana that I’ve had for 5 months and have yet to get a single roll of film developed. At the very least I think it makes a very nice photo prop. I’ll try using it for real this summer.
I’m afraid I’m about to fall even farther behind since I will be out of the country until Monday. I will do my best to keep shooting but in all honesty, I could use a vacation. From everything I have going on…this project included.
See ya guys…please don’t forget about me!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what no inspiration looks like. One of the more frustrating shoots I’ve had in awhile…I hate shooting at this time of day but I didn’t really have a choice.
Can I just ditch all of my responsibilities and run away with my camera? Thanks.

Ok here’s the real picture for today. 
This is my sister Kaitlyn. I took photos for her graduation announcements today. I also met her adorable kitten, Chowder, for the first time and haven’t stopped playing with him since. Maybe he’ll be in tomorrow’s picture. :)

Good morning. I woke up early for once to catch the morning light. That and I have work and a paper due tomorrow.
Hope you all have a great day. :)

Spring is in the air! Took photos of a baby shower and made some $$$. :))
I was without wifi Saturday so this is from yesterday. I stayed at home this weekend. Seeing my family was exactly what I needed. I feel reinvigorated.

Late upload…didn’t have much time to shoot in between school and work. This will have to do.
I am officially sleep deprived. Good day, good night.

Look what I found! A magical green forest of leaves that resemble lily pads. :) I had another location in mind today but at the last minute I decided to be adventurous and keep driving. 
I’m feeling much better. I finished everything I needed to get done this week. Just have a midterm tomorrow and I’m freeeeee!

I had a very hectic day so it was a relief to go shooting.
That time right before the sun sets is so magical. I just wish this guy would have stopped following me so I could have enjoyed it. He wanted to tell me all about his “iphoneography.” -_-
I only got three pictures before I lost the light.
