I've been wanting a room makeover for a while. And after moving into my smaller room it is a must. So, for a while I've been gathering pictures from the internet of bedrooms and artsy rooms. I've been taking note of so many things I think my head might explode.

See the walls in this one? I would LOVE something like that in my room. (:

If only I could fit my desk in my closet. That would be so awesome. Whenever I wasn't using it I could just close it on up. But then there would be the problem of where all my clothes would go. :P

A DIY canopy? No problem! Just a mesh curtain, right?

See how the books are put in color order? I wish I had the patience to do that. But honestly, all my books kind of have the same cover colors. Hmmm, go figure.

The quote hanging on the wall, Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. I will make that and hang it in my room.

*NOTE: I wish I could keep my desk that clean.

I've always been inspired by photography, which is probably why I am so in love with taking pictures and such. But I love pictures. Always have, and probably always will. I like pictures of people mostly, which is the exact opposite of my friend Stephen. He hates taking pictures of people because he doesn't know how to pose them. I LOVE taking pictures of people because I can pose them. But of course, I love the candids the most. If I take pictures of couples, I feel the best way to capture the real them is to just let them interact together. When I took pictures of Jeff & Christa yesterday, I was like "Just talk to each other" and they did and they were having fun and that showed in the pictures.

Anyway, I get some of my pose ideas from other photographers, which is okay because sometimes I tweak them or my model tweaks it. It's not copying, it's inspiring. (:

But here are some pictures that I love and one day with to "copy".

And I'm back to it!

Today I took more pictures! I took pictures of my friends Jeff & Christa. Some of them are just of Christa though, because I told her we'd have a photoshoot. I cannot convey to you how stoked I am to be taking pictures again! I love it! (: I love the taking, the posing, the modeling, the barking orders, the way the pictures turn out, the editing, (and the facebook comments). I love having more pictures to add to my portfolio (which will exist as soon as I have the funds to make it happen). And of course what kind of blog entry would this be without some of the pictures taken from today?!

Aren't they cute?! Yes, it was a very hot day, but we made it through. After an hour or so though, Christa was getting hot and we were all hungry/thirsty. So we shuffled through the last pictures and then proceeded to Chick Fil A for some grub. Good day.
