Sometimes I just want to talk about random crap. No theme, no rules, just…whatever. That’s what I Do What I Want posts come in. This is where I…well, do whatever the hell I want. Enjoy…and be very afraid.

I am taking a photography class for fun. I have about two weeks left in the semester. Yay, almost done. I thought I would share some of my homework assignment photos I took during the class. They aren’t perfect but they were fun to take. I am still learning. Enjoy!


Our Koi pond. Getting my reflections on!


Roll up blinds on a window at work. Shows shallow depth of field.


My cat Castiel. For a shadow/sun assignment.


This is three photos combined. It’s called a photo montage.

The building I work at. I needed to photograph architecture.


More shadow work with a bench at school.


Shallow depth of field with an old typewriter.


I had to take a picture of something colorful then turn in a black and white version as well. This is an old lantern I have.

Learning how to use fast shutter speed with bubbles!


Learning to make ghosts with my camera. Say hi to my Mom!

    OMG! These are friggin’ amazing!! I love them all. I think the old lantern is my fave, but I love the typewriter too. Wow. You could sell these.

      Awww, thanks. I just captureed the lantern too. Lots of cropping but the whole lantern is cool as well.

    Wow, you’re a talented photographer, thanks for sharing your pictures 🙂 I love the koi pound and the old lantern, but the others too. While I’m thinking about it, what camera would you recommend to a beginner photographer ?… (Your cat’s name is Castiel !)

    • Jennifer Bielman

      I did a lot of research on cameras before I bought one. I would recommend the Canon Rebel T5. It’s great for beginners and still is good when you become more professional, plus it’s on the cheaper side at about $400-500 depending on what extras you get.

    Cool pics! If you haven’t already, you should put them up for sale on some of the image sites, they are certainly good enough.

    Okay… so you gonna tell us all your secrets now that your a pro? These photos are amazing! I basically know how to point and click. I tried looking up “how-to” tutorials online but they use a lot of technical words that go way over my head.

    • Jennifer Bielman

      I would honestly suggest a beginning photography class. it really helps make all those tutorials make sense.

    Hi mom! Gosh I wish I could interview your mom and have her spill some juicy bits when she was an ‘ol lady or an MC’s babe…. I still remember you mentioned that one time. She hawt!

    Happy weekend!

      LOL, when did I say that? I can’t even remember. That was a long time ago. She was just a girlfriend, no ol’ lady. She does have stories though. 🙂

      I got A’s on all except the typewriter one I got a B+ for a stupid reason.

    I love the idea of these posts. And pretty much, your photography is very good! I love the different angles of some things you have chosen. I also love the photo montage. It’s a cool idea!

      Thanks! My teacher said the montage one was just okay, so that’s nice to hear you liked it.
