brown eyed girl


lately the weather has been so bipolar


"... and consequently so have I"
-High of 75 by Relient K

It rained.
Actually it was hailing for a few minutes, and after that stopped i saw a rainbow and ran outside.
Of course in suburbia theres no escaping the houses and telephone poles/wires xD so this was the best i could do. Its a nice picture of the neighbors house at least, lol


While I was outside I was looking back into the woods that I blogged about earlier and it was awesome cuz the sun was all ridiculously bright for a few minutes and the trees were all sparkling from the sun reflecting off all the little droplets. It was awesome. So I unfocused my camera because I wanted to try and capture part of it x3


The clouds also looked amazing but I havent quite figured out how to creatively shoot clouds where I live and not get every single house and telephone wire and bush in the picture as well :P

Project 365; Day 87



Our neighbors' flowers are starting to grow.
We had one little purple crocus in our front yard and my 3 year old brother mutilated it before I could take a picture. =/
But there will be more I guess xD

Project 365; Day 85



Exercise: you don't have time not to.

(flash went off in the second one so thats why they look different)

The main focus of my health and fitness class has been... well. Health and fitness. xD
For the past couple lessons I've been reading about obesity and how its become such an epidemic. That seems to be such a popular word. anyways, I'd been meaning to start "jogging" again anyways and I saw this quote on the page and I had a "woah" moment, lol, and it made me stop and think. Two reasons.

1. Thats always my excuse. I don't have time. I think that's everyone's excuse. Everyones so "busy" theres just no time for anything.
2. If you just let yourself go, obesity slices off years of your life. You have less time. Why would you want that?

So that was kinda my push out the door I guess.
That and its warming up xD it'll be nicer but also the whole shorts and swim suits thing, lol
So i try to get up around 7ish, change and take my dog out with me. My goal is at least half an hour a day. So Im always home by 8am. Then its like I never even lost any time at all. Easy peasy. :] I do a lot of walking xD I dont know how people can jog constantly, but maybe I'm just a wimp. but still. I didn't flinch at the 30 on the thermometer :P I think thats saying something, lol. And I was reading that its recommended to exercise 3-5 days a week at least so I don't feel bad about taking weekends off or if it rains :]

So, its really not that hard... even if you start out taking ten minute walks around the block. It doesnt have to be dramatic, just a gradual change, and slowly add on to it while your body is adjusting. People just need the right motivation I think.

Sorry, this wasn't supposed to be this long xD But its just something thats been on my mind lately.

today i got some jeans
and a sweater that was on sale
but i think it might be too small.
i was gonna wear it and then it just looked weird
maybe i panicked in the store and just bought it because i wanted it xD
I do that sometimes. lol

Project 365; Day 83




I have seen pictures of walls where people have just covered them with fashion advertisements and stuff. I want to do that sometime x3 Except I love my magazines as a whole too much to cut them apart D:
And yet I still have no fashion sense ;] haha.

Project 365; Day 82




Today I went out and hiked around in the field behind our house. It was really nice out, so that was pretty awesome. I just sat down on a rock for a while and listened to the birds and stuff.

I guess it used to be an orchard back there and it used to be awesome, but now its just woods, lol
Theres a school right behind/next to it and I guess they're gonna tear up the field and build a new school there =/
Thats too bad, really, because its right behind our house and I prefer looking at woods than having to look at an ugly building. I dont know how much they're tearing down but theres spray paint on trees and pink ribbons and even a number nailed to one tree... Buuut yeah. That stinks.

Project 365; Day 81





This was some kind of mill i think...
It WAS. xD
I think it burned down though.
But anyways theres a park around the remains, lol
its pretty awesome.

Project 365; Day 80

love story

love story

love story

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

- Love Story by Taylor Swift

This was not actually the song I was going to use but I decided I didnt like the original one xD
So I picked Taylor Swift because she's freaking awesome.

I have this problem.
I want to print off business cards and get my name out there.
Get the ball rolling, you know?
And I've been reading some of the Digital Photography School forums and starting a business sounds like a big scary pain in the neck D: Ive seen words like Lawyers and taxes and frightening acronyms.....
But thats not my problem right now xD (yet)
I need a name.

Emily Schreiber Photography doesnt really have a nice ring to it
neither does Schreiber Photography.
In fact I cant think of ANYTHING right now that has a nice ring to it.

As my dad put it so eloquently, my brain is being retarded.
It really is. Usually I'm good at this. I named a band for crying out loud xD and I have lists sitting around of band names, horse names, even people names.

But nothing is really sticking, Im not latching onto any particular word or idea that I want to incorporate into my name
The ones I did like (Amethyst Images, Studio 92, and Wallflower Photography) are all already people who already bought their own domain names and are professionals and whatnot.

Then i came up with 11:11 Photography/Images but that sounds kinda awkward to me
And Storm In A Teacup Photography but thats really long :[

So Im getting really frustrated.
And I know only like 4 people read this :P
But I need name ideas.

I dont want to be sappy and cheesy. But I dont know what I DO want it to be either, really.
My mom said I should give away an autographed photograph (say that five times fast) in a nice frame and everything to whoever has the best idea xD
i can't make any promises. :P
I dont even know anymore, lol.

Please help me :D



its me,
cliche bathroom mirror shot goin on up in here, lol
i got all my hair chopped off :[
its growing on me though
haha. get it? :P
anyways, this is after i went somewhere else and a lady fixed it for me
it looked uber bad before xD

Project 365; Day 79

“The Road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can, pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say.”
- Bilbo Baggins, from The Lord of the Rings

Dont judge me. xDD

The whole idea is too go outside my comfort zone and learn and grow with my photography riiight? xD Yes it is. Thats my goal. Do crazy stuff, get awkward :P somethings gotta stick
So I figure since I hate taking pictures of my feet, I would do that today.
It was quite spontaneous actually, I just jumped up and grabbed my camera. lol
There were a handful that came out decently but i'll just post two


Project 365; Day 78


“Until you walk a mile in another man's moccasins you can't imagine the smell.”
-Robert Byrne

hahaha xD im sure my moccasins would smell pretty bad if they managed to be walked in for a whole mile.
I made mine, :] two years ago when I volunteered at the nature center for a program about Indians. I just got them out again the other day and have been wearing them an awfully lot.
Moccasins pwn.

Project 365; Day 77


“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
-Henry Ward Beecher

I've always enjoyed painting. I've never been particularly good at it.
But I like it, and its very relaxing. I just get frustrated when I cant think of what to paint xD
I also ran out of things to paint on so yesterday I was painting on folders, lol. And I only own one brush. technically, I think its a watercolor brush. Buuuut I dont have anything else so I was using it with acrylics, ssshhhh :P

Project 365; Day 76


Joke me something awful just like kisses on the necks of "best friends"*
We're the kids who feel like dead ends
And I want to be known for my hits, not just my misses
I took a shot and didn't even come close
At trust and love and hope
And the poets are just kids who didn't make it
And never had it at all

And the record won't stop skipping
And the lies just won't stop slipping
And besides my reputation's on the line
We can fake it for the airwaves
Force our smiles, baby, half dead
From comparing myself to everyone else around me

Please put the doctor on the phone 'cause I'm not making any sense
Blame everyone but me for this mess
And my back has been breaking from this heavy heart
We never seemed so far
I'm hopelessly hopeful, you're just hopeless enough
But we never had it at all

And the record won't stop skipping
And the lies just won't stop slipping
And besides my reputation's on the line
We can fake it for the airwaves
Force our smiles, baby, half dead
From comparing myself to everyone else around me
to everyone else around me
everyone else around me
everyone else around me

- Ive Got a Dark Alley and A Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth
by Fall Out Boy

try saying that five times fast
The name is kinda creepy sounding but I like the song xD
The only reason I posted the song was because the name had something to do with alleys in it, lol
ta-da, a picture of an alley. It would be even better if there were some kids from the city in it ( so the lyrics would go along with it better ) but then again they might mug me so maybe its a good thing no one was there xD for the record, this is not where i live, lol

I also had this amazing idea xD
I desaturated my picture and THEN i went into curves and thats how i got it red and blue-ish without being too crazy
i like it :]

and i got my stupid haircut fixed. :]
thank goodness.

Project 365; Day 74

I was at a birthday party today. A 3 year old birthday party at McDonalds xD But it was better than sitting around the house.
I went outside and right behind the building was this beautiful landscape. :]
man i wish i could afford a wide angle lens, lol


theennn you know i have this problem with curves xD
i couldnt help myself



Project 365; Day 73


This was from my second ever paid shoot xD
A family portrait on saturday the 14th. rolling right a long, lol
what do you think about this?
anyone? lol
my dad bought this portrait program to help clean it up a little bit and it works wonders xD I just dont want them to look fake
is it obvious or does it look nice or in between?

Also thanks to my dad who helped me out a ton on both shoots :]
and also, a name. xD
My dad and I were talking in the car about a name for my little business, lol
I drew a blank. its really sad that I cant think of any xD
i came up with Myriad Images/Photography
that was about it. lol
my dad had some good ones like Visible Spectrum and RGB Photography, lol
I cant remember the other ones D:
but, yes. I'll have to work on that o_o

Project 365; Day 72


I did take photos, I was just too worn out by the end of the day to post them :]
This was my favorite from a photo shoot I did on Friday the 13th (my lucky day? lol)
Also my first paid gig :] I also did individual portraits of the boys.
I have other ones that they didn't buy that I liked so I'll try and get those onto my computer
And I shot in RAW and survived it :P

Project 365; Days 70 and 71

Today I made a digital pinhole camera. Click on one of the photos, it'll take you to the flickr page and theres a link there :] I edited them all to make them look a little cooler looking because they were gross boring looking xD I cringe when i look at these because my sensor is so dirty D:
