Day 15

I do believe I'm falling in love with black and white photos. I don't know what it is about them that I love so much, but they just turn out the best in the end. Well, we are getting close to the start of my senior year in high school. GO CLASS OF 2011!!! WOOHOO!!! We just have little over 1 month until school starts. I'm happy, yet sad at the same time.

Day 14

Well, I love just looking around my house looking for things to photograph. My mom loves these statues called Willow Tree. They can be kind of creepy at times because they are all faceless, but it's also a really good quality about them.

Day 13

So I had a bunch of money from my birthday left and I went out and spent it. I used part of it to buy a new black wii remote...haha you might think it's pointless...but oh well. What do you think: white or black?

Day 10

Ok, today I decided to put a picture on here that i barely edited at all. I really like the lighting and the colors in the picture. I'm glad that it turned out this well. All i did was boost the colors just a little bit and turned the strength of the boost down. It was taken in my backyard.

Day 8

I thought it would be a good idea to start taking pictures of my pets. This one is of my dog, Jack, who is possibly the most photogenic dog in the world. It's hilarious, some of the faces he makes when we take his picture.

Day 7

Ok, so I am still very sick. I don't know what I have. I'm about to go to the doctor to see if I have strep throat. I am now on day 3 of my sickness adventure, I have learned of many things that bring me comfort while being in pain.

I have my waterbottle, my sprite, my nyquil and dayquil, my ibuprofen, the themometer, and tootsie pops and popsicles. Hopefully this will be done soon!

Deep Breath Before the Plunge

Well, my followers, we are at that point where I am getting so excited. We are a mere 4 days away from beginning this journey together. As Gandalf would say, "It's the deep breath before the plunge." What will come out of this blog you ask? Well, I hope to learn a great deal more about photography throughout the next 365 days of blogging. Maybe I will become famous like Julie Powell from Julie & Julia...haha I just watched that movie tonight. To be honest I have no idea what will happen. Most likely the world will have no more knowledge of who Phillip Coon is than what they have right now. Oh well...*sigh*. I'm set for having some pictures for the first day because I am going on a photoshoot with my sister and her best friend. They are both graduating from high school and they asked me to take some pictures of them together just for fun. I am also going to be doing my friend's senior pictures in 2 weeks. I have some awesome locations to shoot at that I'm so excited about! My next post will most likely be my first picture, so, get ready followers!

I decided i'm going to make videos of all the pictures I take each month for the entire year that I'm doing this. I made an example video of some of my pictures. Of course it has some awesome music in the background: "Safety Dance" courtesy of Glee!!

I am still a few days away from beginning my 1 - year adventure, but I wanted to share with you guys this picture of my dog, Jack. I've been editing a lot of pictures lately, messing with different effects to use on my pictures. This is probably my favorite picture that I've taken of Jack...enjoy!
