My Other Love...

.

I wanted to introduce my other love: Photography. I figured I'd let new readers see that there is more to me than just makeup. As much as I love makeup, there are other things that I enjoy. (As makeup may be viewed as being superficial to some), but it's art to me, and I have a passion for both makeup and photography, and surprisingly this blog allows me to play with both!

These are some pictures from my Flickr, some photos I took the past few months using my NIKON D40X the boyfriend got me for my 25th birthday. I love scenery, I still have yet to shoot people, any volunteers? :)

Omg. Your the person I wish to be in like 5 years or so. Not to make you feel old or anything, cuz your not. =P
I love photography and makeup also. Your photographs are stunning! Have you taken lessons or is this another natural talent of yours?!

Vanessa said...

Julie- Awww well thank you! Much appreciated!

Grayburn- Thank YOU! :)

Sis Ren- Thank you lovely! They are not the best but I am definitely learning! And I am trying to start my own lil business so funny you said that!

Thank you Nic Nic! That's gotta be one of my favs too!

Acy- Thank you very much!

Thushaa- Thank you! I took one photography class in college, but it was mainly slides. My dad used to be a photographer so he inspired me to take it up, and I just taught myself. Played with the settings, angles, lighting, etc.

Ruby said...

I'm just gonna quote everyone above me.

Is this just a hobby or do you actually go in depth and developed them on your own and have a studio and stuff?

smilebig:) said...

I love those photos=)...they really capture the essence of nature and beauty=)...I am living in LA, I would love to be your volunteer for the photos=)...but I am rather plump, so prob after I lose some stress-weight-gain??=D...My fav got to be the glass of water, with slices of cucumber(??)... stunning...

Fashion Advocate said...

Those are awesome shots! I was mesmerized by its beauty and simplicity. Keep it up!

Christal said...

My sis is a photography major Ill have to get her to take a look at your great photos

LS said...

Very well done Vanessa! My fave one will be the third from top, the water with boats, sunset, silhouette...it's so serene.

You're very talented. Don't you just wish you can quit your full time job and devote more days to hobbies and passions in life? I do!

Oh and I live in LA area. Us locals should organize a full day event to meet for make-up and photography!

May said...

i love the clarity and perspective of your photography! one day, i will learn how to use manual functions :P it's confusing on which shutter/aperture speed to set!

haha, i would love to volunteer, but i am a complete n00b when it comes to posing. not to mention i live 3,000 miles away, lol!

Lynn said...
