Happy New Year! + features

If you think about it, today is no different than any other day of the year. Sure, the calendar for the year 2013 ended, and when we write the date today it's a different year than it was yesterday. But our year might have just as well ended three weeks ago. Or six months ago. Or tomorrow. Nothing happened yesterday that was of any consequence. There was no cosmological event that switched the year. It's totally random.

And yet, there's something slightly magical about starting a new year. It's like starting a new diary, or going outside for the first time after a snowfall, when all you see outside is an untouched, glittering plain; and it will be your footsteps that make the first marks.

Happy New Year, and may it be the most wonderful yet!

Let's make a mark in this new, magical year with our art! :love:

My name is Olivia.

I started photographing in 2003, while I was attending a one-year foundation class at art school. In 2004 I started school to be a multimedia designer and computer programmer. I graduated in 2008 and have been working as a computer programmer, multimedia designer and portrait and fashion photographer since.

Don't be a stranger, say hello! :-)
I am nice, really. Well, most of the time anyway. See for yourself. :D

Current projects...

  • Blender
  • Developing my own black and white photographs
  • Digital drawing with Gimp-Painter and MyPaint
  • Conceptual photography project

I recently came across this online app that makes me pretty happy: piccsy
Basically it's just a way to love and share images from all over the internet, and right now I enjoy the selection of images that is on display there a great deal. There are quite a few nudes (girls mainly - for some unexplained, cryptic reason ;)). But I haven't come across any tasteless pictures, most of them are either pretty aesthetic or funny. You should check it out too!

Some piccsy favourites

piccsy was suggested to me by another of my favourite applications, StumbleUpon. When I first signed up years ago I used the SU toolbar for Firefox quite a lot; then I got a new installation on a new computer and the use died. I do however receive SU emails still: Every couple of weeks they send me a selection of "stuff you might like". And very often I do like the stuff. The suggestions range from interesting statistics about money and life through funny stuff to beautiful photography and resources. It's really great if you ask me.

I am also a passionate believer in typography. Few things make my heart speed up and my skin prickle like when I see a beautiful font. :) So of course I love the MyFont newsletters called "Rising Stars" and "Creative Characters". This months Rising Stars was in my inbox today and made my toes tingle with excitement. See all their newsletters in their gallery.

So there you are. These are a few of the (online) things that I like. What are yours?

  • Mood: Daily Needs
We just stood there and looked at each other and kissed, and then we talked and we kissed some more and we laughed and talked and held hands and kissed A LOT more and ... yeah. Eventually I had to leave, and then he left too, and now we're going to see each other again!

That's pretty much the story of my life in the last couple of weeks. I went to Geneva for a photography job and I met this awesome guy there who's from Manchester. We started dating, but then we both had to go home. I'm going to see him again on Thursday and the thought just makes me smile!

I have been doing mainly event/fashion/product photography lately, and the more creative and artsy stuff has been rotting away in a corner of my mind. I'm ready to dust it off now and see how much of it stuck around. :)
Oh, and I'm so gonna get myself a subscription again before the end of the month, so I can do features again. I miss features!

What's new with you?
