I just stumbled across an old interview I had with Scout Magazine in the fall and thought I would post it here. When they asked for a picture of me for the interview, I panicked as I realized I didn't have an appropriate portrait of myself. So I went into the back yard and held an old framed print of a landscape behind me and had my boyfriend take some shots. The lighting worked out perfectly, as it was an overcast cloudy day in vancouver (per usual) so the light was diffused. I was so surprised that it looked like a studio shot. If you want to try this method, make sure to use a long lens, ( a 90mm or longer) as shorter lenses distort the photo. I think the most common portraiture mistake comes from the photographer shooting too close to the subject with a short lens.

It's a cold blustery day outside and I am starting to decorate the house with cozy christmas cheer. Here are some lovely etsy finds I came across while snuggling up inside my warm house waiting for snow.

When I woke up today the white christmas lights from across the street had cast the most nostalgic wintery glow into my living room. Christmas break is around the corner and I find myself searching etsy for the coziest delights...
