hey guys! just a quick note from me! i'm having a really awesome time on my vacation and i hope you like this post!! thanks for posting Gracie!
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
hi! my name is gracie. i am a photographer and graphic designer. my camera rarely leaves my side. i love cupcakes and big, colorful lollipops (hence the name of my blog, lollipops & cupcakes). i love to laugh and i am a very random person ;) i still act like a little kid at times, and i'll do whatever it takes to make someone happy :)
How long have you been interested in photography, and what got you started?
i got interested in photography about a year ago. i somehow discovered my parents Sony camera and i took it outside to take some pictures of my cats and, well... the rest is history, i suppose :)
What kind of camera do you have, and when did you get your first camera?
i currently own a Sony DSC-H1. my parents bought me a little red Samsung for my 12th birthday... but i broke it, so i turned to my parents Sony. it may not be a DSLR, but it does take some pretty amazing shots :)
What is your favorite thing to take pictures of?
i would have to say nature and anything that doesn't move, haha. all of my siblings despise the camera and my pets don't sit still, so i have turned towards inanimate objects. but when i do get the chance to take portraits... well, you could say i get as happy as an ice cream sundae with a cherry on top ;)
What is your favorite picture that you have taken?
hm... that's a hard one. a pretty much live by the quote "what's my favorite picture? the one i'm going to take tomorrow." but if i must pick a favorite, then it would have to be this one:
i am just a little obsessed with bokeh, and now that you know that little piece of information, i'm pretty sure you can figure out why i love this photo so much :)
What photographers inspire you?
oh, too many to count! haha... okay, here are a few of my very favorite, and very inspiring photographers:
i started my blog way back (okay, only a year ago) in September of 2010. i was surfing the web and came across this cute little site and looked at the URL and noticed the ".blogspot". being the weird and curious person that i am, i decided to check out this ".blogspot" and i found out that my mom had set up an account years ago. i started playing with the design. changing the background, colors, and fonts. i then asked my mom if i could make it my blog and she said okay. i don't really remember why i started the blog. at first i just thought it would be cool, then i started using it to post my photos, and now it is sort of my creative outlet.
What are some of your favorite things to do besides photography?
i love to sing and act in live theater. oh, and i love to blog, hang out with my friends and family, read, and go bike riding occasionally with my friend, Kristen.
Do you sell your photos anywhere?
not yet, but i am hoping to start selling them soon!
What is one random fact about yourself?
hm... i don't like sea food. which ironic because i was born in the tiny state of Maryland which is known for their "amazing" crab cakes. haha... yeah, you probably didn't need to know that ;)
