nataliekucken asked: i love you your necklace will be mailed soon
Besides everything, this is my favorite part of my new home :)
what are some of your favorite poems?
Oh gosh, you shouldn’t really ask me this question because the answer is going to be super long and indecisive. I just love so many poems. I love E.E. Cummings, Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath, Rumi, Emily Dickinson, and Neruda. Those are my favorites. I wish I had all my books with quotes and notes and dog eared pages but they are still packed away from the move since I don’t have any book...
nataliekucken asked: you should teach workshops and show your work in shows, brooke shaden does that sorta stuff i think :)
mynewurlisivysaurus-deactivated asked: Hi. I was wondering if you plan on not going to school at all but plan to pursue photography. And if so, what your plan is.
I hope that's ok and not too personal to ask.

Did you go to college to study photography ? If...
I did one semester of college at the very beginning of my 365 last fall before I lost interest. I took a beginner photography class and that bored me. But I got an A :) School just isn’t for me I think. Ask me anything
I have a twitter if you want to follow. →
Do you ever meet up with random strangers that...
Well that really depends I think. If I’ve never talked to you before, I’d probably be a bit wary. Although I tend to be a bit wary anyway because I’m wicked shy when it comes to meeting new people. I’ve never really met anyone from the internets. Well, I did met this one fella, but he was from the area and we had mutual friends. I do plan on meeting Miss Nikki Chicoine in...
sleepyandwistful asked: What kind of smoke bombs do you use for your shoots? Idk which ones produce a good amount of smoke :/
lovingvalerie asked: just love how helpful you are! its so nice of you! thank you :)
other than photography, what do you do for your...
I work as an aide in an operating room. You know, fetch the instruments, make sure everything is stocked, clean the rooms. OR’s gofer basically. I think having another job absolutely 100% hinders on my creativity. I get up at 5am to be at work for 6ish work my eight hours and I’m up until 12 or 1am every night either answering emails or formspring questions or working on my 365 or...
hello :) i love your flickr photostream i follow...
Trial and error mostly and loads of practice. I use my focus points to manually pick one that I think will be close to say my eye or face then estimate where I’m going to stand. It gets easier with practice :) Ask me anything
do you ever get bitten by bugs like ticks and...
Every time I go out. When spring first started I was picking off 5 - 10 ticks everyone I came inside. Mosquitoes are just second nature now. I have bug bites all over. Ask me anything
what was your favorite subject in school?
I liked art class. I wasn’t very good in school because I wasn’t interested in it. Fun fact, I failed my first photography class :) Ask me anything
do you have a favorite t-shirt? whats it look...
I have this blue T-shirt my sister bought for me with a camera on it and it says, “and that’s when I snapped” :) Ask me anything
Hello dear, When you're shooting, about how many...
I generally have a pretty clear idea of what I want to do when I go into a shoot so I usually have about 3 - 5 to choose from. I don’t like taking too many pictures because RAW files are huge and overload my computer. When I feel I got what I need I stop. Ask me anything
would you ever share some of your poetry?
Probably not :) it was mostly self depricating teenage angst and most of it only made sense to me. Maybe one day, but probably not. I’m kind of embarrassed by it. Ask me anything
Anonymous asked: can you post some photographer blogs we should follow pleaseeeeee
brokentongues asked: When you're making an image, do you always combine images, or do you usually just use one and manipulate it?
shewasanouk: sarahlikedaffodils: What?! Though this have completely blown my mind, I’m not quite positive on the positive aspects of it all. Then does this mean that everybody will be able to achieve any spectacular shot without even knowing the basics of photography? Does this mean that despite you’ve been born to be a photographer, everybody else will be pretty much able to achieve almost...
would you do a video tutorial about how you expand...
I’m not quite sure how to do that. Besides Photoshop actions, is there a free program I can use to record the process? I’m kind of computer illiterate :) Ask me anything
Send me questions! I’ll do a video q&a tonight if I get enough. <3
Who inspires your photography and why?
I am inspired by tons of people! Alex and Lissy and Karrah and Zach and Terra and Seanen and Brooke and Rosie! (I’m on my phone so I can’t do the links :) I’m also inspired by Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath, and E.E. Cummings and all those self depricating poets of the 60s. Ask me anything
how do you file your photos? i have soooo many on...
I usually keep all my jpeg photos on my computer but back them up on my external. My unedited RAW files however, are just too large to store on my computer so every few weeks I put them on my external and purge them. Ask me anything
