Project 52: And the Oscar Goes to... by MariahBlack09
Project 52: And the Oscar Goes to...

3/52: "Tell a Story"

I kind of cheated on this one. I guess technically every image tells a story, but I didn't exactly go in depth. BUT I really wanted to a) play with the new speedlights I bought, b) do something with gold paint, and c) avoid frostbite outside.

Therefore, I just had some fun. And turned myself into an Oscar statuette!

(P.S. Although I did have to color the dress in photoshop, I did actually paint myself gold. Super fun! Also, dedication.)

2/52: Faceless Portrait.

I could've just covered my face with my face the one time and been done with it. But where the heck is the fun in that?
Project52: Red by MariahBlack09
Project52: Red

I started a new photo project this week to kind of push myself to think outside of every box I've ever grown comfortable to. It's got 52 prompts for portraits for the next year and I think it's going to be just super ridiculously fun. The first prompt is working with a single color. It's so not my style, but I'm actually pretty fond of it!

Figured it was time I updated this a little bit :)

My name is still Mariah. I'm now working on the professional side of photography as a portrait artist... hoping to one day specialize as a glamour/fashion senior photography. My inspiration has always been dreams, fantasy and color. I also dabble in graphic design and digital painting. It keeps me entertained.

I find that my world is happiest when I'm day dreaming. Photography and digital technology gives me the opportunity to put my day dreams into "reality".

I also nerd out:
Harry Potter
Lord of the Rings
Game of Thrones
Hunger Games :)

Current Residence: USA
Favourite genre of music: Red Dirt Country, Bluegrass and Folk (and the occasional rock anthem)
Favourite photographer: Right now? Sue Bryce and her absolutely brilliant portraits are killing me. I am also really inspired by Amanda Holloway in her ability to take a gorgeous senior portrait. And Alex Beadon (who isn't even a photographer anymore I guess...) with her whimsy and sense of surrealism in her self portraits.
Favourite style of art: Impressionism
Operating System: Mac + Photoshop CC + Lightroom 5
Camera: Canon 60D
Favourite cartoon character: Disney from the 90's
Personal Quote: "Whatever you are, be a good one" -abraham lincoln
