Awardssss.....

Honestly, it amazes me how many of you think I'm worthy of receiving these things. 
Especially one for great doll photography.
Like, what?
You're nominating the girl who sat upstairs in the bathroom to get dark shots of Elizabeth for the AB/AP photo-shoot? 

Right. 

Okay.

That aside, all these nominations really do mean a lot to me, and though it takes me a while to get through them (I'm a lazy bum who honestly spends majority of her time watching Amazingphil videos and listening to FOB) I'm really thankful for everybody who nominates me.

Also, I'm pretty horrible at keeping tabs on these, so if you nominated me and I didn't do the questions, please know that I'm not ignoring you, I'm just really bad at bookmarking who has done what. If I missed you, just drop me a comment saying,"Hey doofus, I nominated you ages ago," so I can promptly scream and edit this post.


I was nominated for the You're A Great Photographer award three times, by the lovely Shelby-Grace (HERE), Rylee (HERE), & Leah (HERE)
Thank you girls for awarding me this!!!! 
If you haven't checked out their blogs, you really need to scoot yourselves over to their corners of the internet because they all do such wonderful and unique things. <3

Rules:


1. Nominate 3-7 blogs for this award and make a link to their blog.
2. If you are nominated, give 1 of your list one of your photography tips and answer the questions given my the person who nominated you.
3. Go comment on the persons blog that you nominated letting them know you awarded them.
4. Put the picture above on your award post.
5. Link your post back to the original post.
6. Add the picture to your sidebar or award page.
7. Copy and paste these rules on your award post.
8. Have fun!


I honestly don't know what to do for a photography tip. I guess if you're looking to improve what you do, do some research on your camera and it's capabilities. Also, take time to look at other's pictures and see how they do. Don't feel shy to ask somebody about their camera, how they got their lighting like that, etc. =)

And now for the questions...

Shelby-Grace's Questions:

1.) Which doll is next on your wishlist?
I'm really interested in Grace at the moment, as well as two JLY (I'm sorry but I always refer to them as this; it's a habit) dolls, but I'm fairly satisfied with the dolls that I have at the moment. =)

2.) What camera do you use?
 Sony DSC-HX1. It's kind of like a camera just below DSLR's. It's pretty nice, & I like what it does. I am hoping to be able to myself a Canon Rebel at some point though. 

3.) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
England.

4.) When did you start taking doll pictures?
I believe I started around 2011...? 
I know I started to take (horrible) pictures around then because I entered them into Doll Diaries' photo contests they had around that time.
Or was it 2011? 
...
Whenever MK was the girl of the year that's when I started. xD

5.) Who was your first doll?
My precious little Lissie was my first doll. ^-^

Thanks again for the nomination, Shelby-Grace! <3




Rylee's Questions: 

1. Do you like Fedoras? *cough*xD
Yes I do. 
Also, I know you give me these questions just to make me squirm and I don't appreciate it. xD

2. Lee pace or Patrick stump?
Okay, seriously?
*tugs on hair* 
You know what? 
I'll take my dorky little Pat. You can keep Lee. xD


3. What are a few of your current obsessions?
Amazingphil, Danisnotonfire, The Luna Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, Patrick Stump, Little House on the Prairie show (It is so sad how addicted I am to this but the show is just amazing.)

4. Sweat pants or jeans?
Jeans, only because I have enough self-consciousness to inform me that I'm not wearing sweat pants anywhere public. xD

5. How often do you run into random people at the store(or anywhere for that matter)?
Okay, the last two times I've been the orthodontist to get my braces tightened, I have run into two people from my old school and it's scaring me. If it happens again I'm going to lose it. 

Thank you dearest Ry for the questions (as traumatic as they were.) xD




And lastly, Leah's questions:

1.) What camera do you use?
See above. =)

2.) Which one of your dolls is the most photogenic?
MK, no question about it. xD 
Clara's also really photogenic as well, but I just always find I have more fun when McKenna's in front of the camera. 

3.) Do you like indoor photography better, or outdoor? 
Indoor, because that way I don't have to haul myself and gear outdoors. xD 
No but honestly, I don't know which I prefer. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. 

4.) Which season is your favorite to take photos of your dolls? (Sorry if that was confusing)
Fall and spring, because those are my two favorite seasons and the weather is usually always nice at that time. ^-^


Thank you gals so much, once again, for nominating me! It means a bunch to this little, nerdy gal. 



Leah nominated me for the You Are Amazing & So Is Your Blog Award. Thanks so much,dear! 
If you haven't checked out her blog, please clickie HERE, because it's such a cute one. ^-^

The Rules
1. Copy and paste these rules on to your award post.
2. Come up with at least 5 fun questions for your nominees to answer.
3. Nominate at least 5 people who you think are amazing and have an amazing blog.
4. List at least one reason why you appreciate the people you nominated.
5. Put this award on your sidebar or award/tag page if you were nominated.
6. Leave a comment on your nominees' blogs letting them know they've been nominated.



The Questions:
1.) What's your favorite book series?
I'm currently obsessed with The Lunar Chronicles right now. Cinder was amazing, and Scarlet is doubly so.
Also really ecstatic because I picked up the new Heirs book yesterday and it's amazing. <3

2.) Is you hair curly, straight, or wavy?
I'm laughing because my mom and I always disagree on what my hair is. She says wavy, but my hair does indeed form in ringlets. Of course it's more wavy than curly after a few days but I'll still fight and say curly. xD

3.) Are you totally obsessed with Polaroids like I am?
I wouldn't say obsessed, but I do like Polaroids and wouldn't mind getting one someday.

4.) Do you know how to French braid?
Sort of... I can only do it on Lissie, and certainly not on my own hair.

5.) What blog that you follow has your favorite design?
Can I nominate my personal for this? xD
Just kidding...
Umm...
I want to say Rylee's, but that's horrible because I designed the gal's blog. :P
Mmm... Ellie's name is springing to mind. I love her blog background. Autumn has a gorgeous design as well.


Thanks Leah for the nomination, it meant a lot to me! ^_^


I won't be nominating anybody as I have to move onto other things at the moment, but if you want to do an award, just drop me a comment below and you can surely do it on your blog. =)


I've got some photos to upload so there'll be a photo-shoot soon. 


Hope everybody has a lovely day. <3

  6. Those were some amazing answers there! The main reason I really read tag posts are because you kinda sorta get to know the people better. kind of. wait, you like my design? hehe, surely that was a typo of some sort, I know autocorrect is becoming worser these days :P Well maybe not, but thanks :)

  7. Fabulous as usual Adi.
    Spring is one of my favorite seasons to take pictures in, too, especially because the sun doesn't go down like a half hour after I get home.
    By the way, I was wondering if you've got a Pinterest? I'd absolutely love to follow you. :)
