Ever since I moved here I've wanted to out to this place and take some pictures. I have to pass it to get to the interstate and today I decided that I would finally go check it out today, for the 365days podcast challenge "On Location."

It was sort of scary and I drove around it in circles before I could get up the courage to park and go walking into it. There were houses around and I didn't want someone to come out and start yelling at me. I took my brother with me so I wouldn't get kidnapped by a serial killer-rapist-person. I had a lot of fun! The lot is just amazing and I cannot wait to go back and spend more time there. It was nice bonding with my brother too. I think I tend to take him for granted alot more than I should. Cause he can be a really cool kid when he wants to be. I took a bunch of pictures of him and he was my button presser. I still consider this a self portrait because I set the tripod and framed the shot, all he did was press the button. It was really frustrating though because the wind was terrible and most of the pictures I took of myself came out really awful looking, my hair was either in my face completely or sticking up and my eyes were squinty from the sun. I kind of like this shot though. I'm so glad I didn't chicken out. And I am just exhausted now! I forgot how much energy really goes into going out and getting dirty and taking pictures. And I know it's Half Nekkid Thursday, but there was no way I was getting on top of one of these cars half naked. I'd end up with 40 different diseases.

On and on and on you wait
and oh the days they fade away
and all the nights they've never felt
the same.

So this is my 'night portrait.' I sort of feel like this is more of a low key portrait than a night portrait, but it was taken outside at night so. Yeah. I had to fiddle around with the aperture and shutterspeed for half an hour but FINALLY I got it right. It was so hard to sit still! I'm really glad this week's theme was night portraits and not "take a macro of your face." Because I'm still all spotty and gross.

I'm not any better today than I was yesterday. I had written out a different blog for today but I'm going to move it over to Livejournal, cause I'm starting to feel like I'm being too personal on Flickr. I just feel sort of weird knowing that any stranger can find my pictures and read my blogs. If any of my contacts want to be added, just leave a comment.

I'm sorry I've been so depressing lately. I REALLY am trying hard to be happy.

I promise tomorrow's picture will be funny. And you have to check it out if you want to see day 51...

I got a lot of comments (thankyou SO much by the way!) and requests for a tutorial on this shot and how I did it. So I made a tutorial for it! It's seriously one of the easiest and fastest Photoshop manipulations, even if you aren't super amazing at Photoshop, you can totally do this. Anyway, I hope it's helpful and if you have any questions or need help just let me know!

Click for tutorial!

Funny thing too - I just noticed that this weeks podcast challenge is "Make A Tutorial" Haha! I didn't even know that when I started this. :P

I've missed taking self portraits. I took a bunch today and I'll probably upload some rejects tomorrow. I've got to clean the house because my mom is having people over tomorrow and she's freaking out. Ugh.

Also, does this follow the rule of 3rds? I gridded it in PS. My eye sort of hits an intersection? I'm utterly confused about it, STILL. Even after Googling it. And watching the podcast. 3 times. I think I kind of know how to crop a photo to make it interesting, but the whole thirds thing...yeah it's gone completely over my head.

And what makes me mad is that I'm sure it's so much simpler than I'm making it out to be. I feel stupid. Really. I hate not being able to understand things. I feel like I'm back in my Special Ed Algebra class.

I'm posting it to the podcast thread in 365days anyway, and if it doesn't follow the rule...oh well? I tried doing negative space because I really do love negative space but my camera/face wasn't cooperating and I was sick of my tripod so I went for an arms length shot instead. Shoot me.

The incredibly amazing Mav came up with this idea for the 365days Podcast Challenge. I feel so lucky to have been included!

The whole photoshoot was quite hilarious, me and Kat played a fun game of footsie, Mikey kept trying to sneak peeks down me and Mickey's tops (dude, I don't blame you, I was up-skirting her every chance I got) and James and Jessi and were making out and making monkey noises the entire time (it was pretty barfy.) Mav kept insisting that we should make worship poses around him and was going on and on about how amazing he is. It was quite annoying. Afterwards we got drunk off Mav's awesome home brewed beer and had a groping party. It was spectacular! ;)

(If you're in the photo go ahead and add a tag with your username, I'm too lazy to do it :P)
