halloween art night
art night is a select group of artists getting together once a quarter to show their work, socialize, and gain valuable feedback from other artists. it’s truly an honor to be invited to participate in this event.
evenings like art night leave me thinking obsessively about how other artists approach their work. i love hearing about how ideas come to fruition, and having the ability to pick an artists brain over a spread of tasty treats.
last night i presented a short experimental film. i received some very positive and interesting feedback. if you’re interested in critiquing my video clip, please send me an e-mail through my web site. i would be interested to hear what you think.
i’m looking forward to attending the next art night. events like this motivate me to continue what i love to do. it gives me something to think about and to live for.
still working out a few kinks (heh heh..i said kinks), but here’s my web site.
i can’t stop posting photos on my other tumblr account for some strange reason (slaps hand). i think it’s because i know i’m reaching a wider audience. i like sharing what i see.
what do you think?
hey tumblr friends!
i’ve been working hard setting up my photo web site these past few days. i’m almost finished uploading, naming, and organizing things.
naming and describing the photos seems to be the hardest part for me. i’m not sure why, but i like photos so speak for themselves, but i really dislike when a piece of art is listed as untitled. hopefully i didn’t name anything too cheesy.
i’m really anxious to finish the site so i can free up some time to take more photos for you.
i’m in a baby photo posting mood lately. i guess it’s because this kid is adorable and i managed to get some great shots of her.
this shot was taken when gracy woke from a nap, which i find is a great time to take photos of babies!

my apologies if some of my photos hit your dashboard twice. i’m trying to keep the majority of my photos on this tumblr account, but sometimes i screw up and post to both pages.
ethan and delaney
Delaney talked Ethan in to a brother and sister shot. It took me at least five clicks to get one with both of them looking in to the camera.
Let’s face it. Kids can be a pain in the ass to shoot.
This little guy didn’t want anything to do with me or the camera. In fact, the second I pointed the lens at him, he would run away. It was his little game.
Here are a few ways I deal with photographing kids.
1. Get them engaged. Show them the camera. Let them see a few photos you’ve taken. Show them a photo of themselves after you take it. Ask them to hop around a little to get a photo of them in the air. Make it fun!
2. Totally ignore the kid. Take pictures of everyone else but them. They will eventually feel left out and want you to take their picture. They might even beg you to do it! This method takes a while, but if you have time and a little patience this can method can work. If there are a bunch of kids around, focus on the one kid that doesn’t mind having their picture taken and make a huge fun deal out of it. Most kids want to participate where there’s something fun going on.
3. LIE! (The easiest method). I had to break down and lie with little Ethan (pictured above). I told him there was a tiny little sponge bob square pants inside the lens.
hey! my name is michelle. my passion is photography, videography and art. if i’m not creating something, or thinking about creating something, i go insane. literally. that’s why i call my business maladjusted media. don’t worry though, i’m totally harmless. :-)
i’ll be updating this blog with photos that i don’t plan to sell. i take lots and lots of photos, so be prepared to follow my life through images. i’ll write some fun stuff about my photo adventures too.
