INSPIRATION BOARD

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 

I spent 5 straight hours on Pinterest the other day. 5 HOURS. How does something like this happen? Pinterest is a wonderful, inspiring and dangerous space on the Internet. And besides all things babies and home interior design, I have just been loving the art of photography on the site. Now that I am graced with another wonderful camera, I just want to jump start into my passion of taking photographs. I've been looking up all of my favorite local photographers, as seen above, and hope that someday I'll be as talented as them. Now, who wants to buy and teach me how to use Photoshop? But seriously... ::winks::

Happy Weekend! Here's to being inspired!

  1. Haha, Pinterest is SO easy to get caught up in. Sometimes I just sit for a while before I go to sleep, pinning things. And I've gotten my boyfriend onto it too! :)

  4. So good to be passionated with something like this dear! I have to say that Pinterest is my fear of spending hours through the inspirational photos, that's why I'm not sign up :P Wish you a wonderful day gorgeous!

  5. Pinterest truly is a great boredom-killer. Tumblr is pretty good too. Have a great weekend!

  6. I love pinterest, it's a space where I can collect anything I wanna do in the future without bookmarking all the links! If you have an inspiration, just keep going! :)

  7. Five hours is impressive! I do that with the Sims. ;) I love the first image so much though! It's so beautiful and soft. Resisting the temptation to head over to Pinterest right now...! x

  9. I used to marathon pinning, but not as much lately, because of the thousand pins of food that make you go to the kitchen at midnight and that is so bad :(
    I love the style of this pictures. I guess you need someone to teach you Photoshop live?

    ReplyDelete
  10. ...And that is why I will never get a Pinterest. hah

  11. Can I please just say... that you are by far the most inspiring women I've ever encountered on the blogosphere? Because you are. Can I please just be you in 5 years?

  12. I know what you mean, it can get addicting.

  13. First of all...lol I have been trapped on Pinterest without any escape in site numerous times. Second, these photos are amazing and I love the style. I know one day you will be just as great!

  14. Gorgeous images! I'm especially in love with number two. They look like they're on some amazing, romantic adventure.

  15. A shiny new camera is my number one wish for this Christmas. It's hard not to get caught up in beautiful photos.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ok, I'll be honest. I'm looking at your pictures (before I got to the words and all) and I say to myself, "this TJ girl is an awesome photographer!!" These are so your style, I'm still not convinced that you didn't take them:)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have a nice camera (Nikon D40) and unfortunately am one of those people who has absolutely NO CLUE how to use it! ....those camera's are a bit intimidating for me I'll admit. My husband majors in Graphic Design and knows all the ins and outs of all the editing programs out there. He's really talented and I just sit back and stare in awe at all the amazing things he can do with pictures! Good luck with your photography! Not that you need it.... you already take such fabulous photos! Here's to the weekend!

  19. Photoshop is a beast! But I did buy Photoshop for Dummies (gasp, I know) and have learned quite a bit. Happy photo taking!

  20. These are lovely photos! I could spend hours on Pinterest too! I just wish I had more time in a day!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I do the same thing- and never figure out where my times goes! But I always feel inspired after a good pinterst session :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ooo, what kind of camera did you get? And are you selling your old one? If so, you should definitely let me know since I'm in the market :)

    1. I ended up getting a refurbished Nikon D3100. I would sell mine but the shutter is completely ruined :(

  23. Pinterest is such a time sucker, but I've tried things I wouldn't have found or thought of without it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is the scary thing about Pinterest - how addicting it is! I have to use pinterest for my job since so many brides and grooms use pinterest as a planning tool, and I've actually began to use pinterest less in my personal life! I suppose now I equate it with working!

    ReplyDelete
  25. oh! I hear you little lady, Pinterest is really dangerous! makes me very ambitious!
    nice photos!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I totally get the photography urge thing - I have it too! And yes, Photoshop would completely change my life if I had it, or knew how to use it! I'm kind of hoping Santa will deliver it to me this year. Here's to hoping, right?!

  27. Pinterest is so addictive I know that!!!

  29. maybe that's why pinterest hasn't been working for me... it keeps saying there was an error with the server... geez TJ! hehe ;)

  30. aw these are such beautiful, romantic photos. love them!!! you should totally take more photos - can't wait to see what you come up with :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Forget photoshop! Get Lightroom! SO much cheaper and simpler! It's a lot easier to learn. :)
    and if you or your husband is still a student you can get a big discount on it from Journeyed.com

  32. TI can defiantly spend my fair share on Pinterest, but 5 hours?! haha! -Heidi

    ReplyDelete
  33. photoshop is wonderful. i could tell you how to get it. then again. i couldn't. but in all seriousness - cs6 creative cloud is only $39 a month and includes illustrator and all of the other tools, including lightroom if you wanted it. i use cs and doing montly 40 dollars doesn't hurt as bad, and it's significantly less over time (at least for someone who upgrades often like me)

  35. Pinterest is definitely my guilty pleasure. One of my really good friends knows the founder and I am seriously pulling all the strings I can right now to get an internship or SOMETHING because it is just magical!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, Pinterest ...

    So, this post reminded me that I haven't spent some "quality" time on Pinterest in quite awhile -- going to have to fix that! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I agree Pinterest is the best and most dangerous website. Much of my time has been spent on that website, but I've also used plenty of great ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Pinterest is indeed a true time-stealer, although I personally think that any time spent gathering inspiration is time well spent :)

    ReplyDelete
