Snow white was here

Last Sunday I went out with a friend to do a photo shoot for a school assignment. The assignment is to do a photo shoot at any location you want.
I really wanted to make a fairy tale series. I already did something that looked like Alice in Wonderland, with the clock a few posts back. Last Sunday I made Snow white photographs, and soon I'll be making some red riding hood photos.

 I went out longboarding with some friends yesterday. I had to do this photography assignment for school, the theme is "My club". You can do it about your football club, your family, but of course I wanted to make photographs of my "longboarding club". 

It was actually way harder than I thought. I'm planning to make some more photographs later.

Emarosa - Heads or Tails? Real or Not? (ACOUSTIC)

An acoustic version of one of my favorite songs at the moment. I choose the acoustic version to place on our blog because the non-acoustic version may be a little too heavy? :D

Time is running out

And then suddenly my sister appeared in my room with a sentence that said "let's do a photo shoot, I'm bored".

30 minutes later we went to the forest with her car. I took this huge clock with me which I got from my boyfriend's parents for Christmas.

These are some photographs I took there. I really like the colors.
What do you think?

Red haired girl

You might have seen this girl in the previous post, but now I've colored it in Paint Tool Sai. Even though it looks simple I really like it and it actually took me quite some time.

Do you like it?

I know I haven't shown you guys a drawing for a while and the reason is because I've been busy. Before this holiday I was busy with school stuff and now I've been busy with gaming and longboarding.

Another reason why I haven't uploaded a drawing drawn on the computer is because I lost my pen for my drawing Tablet, which my mom found yesterday so I might make a drawing soon again.

Here is a drawing of two girls. I just love to draw girls xD especially the hair. I really like the hair of the red haired girl.

Lan Party!

Guild Wars 2 the beta was released this weekend. That means that you could only play the game this weekend to see how it looks for so far and how the game play is. I ordered the game Thursday at and got it Friday. I was so happy because the Beta weekend started at 9 pm.
To make it even better: my parents were on a holliday from Friday till monday so I had my first LAN-party this weekend!

A LAN party is like coming together with your nerdy game friends, play games and drink beer. 
Since I don't like alcohol I didn't drink it of course!

My boyfriend Vincent and two other friends Rishaad and Rik brought their computers to my house.
We placed the computers on the dining table and gamed from Friday evening till Sunday night. Since Guild wars had some problems sometimes we could't play it the whole day, so we played some Starcraft II too.

I really enjoyed this weekend and hopefully I'll be having some more LAN-parties soon!

I've made a lot of screen shots of the game so if some of you are interested to see them let me know and I'll make another post with screen shots.

how was your weekend?

Made these photographs one hour ago. It was very windy so it was really hard to make photographs of the flowers. 
Especially of the pocket watch because it was spinning around the whole time. I really like photographs with a blurry background and that's why I'm so happy to have a Macro lens :D

I hope you like it!

before after

I just love to show before/afters. I always like to see how a photograph looked before it was photoshoped. And somehow, I always like a photograph more when it is photoshopped.

For our photography subject on school we have to make a magazine.

The photograph you see on the left is a preview of the cover of my magazine. I really like it myself, but what do you think? :) I would love to get some tips.

Also the other image you see is a preview of two pages I made in InDesign.

Karlijn and I went to the Ruigenplaatbos yesterday. It's a forest who has just everything. We had so much fun and we made some lovely photographs!

My first attempt on making a stopmotion ( for school of course). I'll probably make another one because this one is very short.

I really love those photographs with quotes on it (swag quotes), so today I made my own swag quote!

It's a feather in the background.

Creepy picture

This is a photo I made at museumpark at Rotterdam. It was very foggy that day so museumpark came out great.

I think it looks a little creepy, but I like it anyway. :) Tell me what you think !

Instruction movie

A few months ago we had to make an instruction movie for school. Karlijn's and mine instruction movie was about drawing!

The drawings are pretty bad and it's in Dutch, so not all of yo may understand what I'm saying but I still hope you'll like it!

Mom's Birthday !

The 1st of April ( no it's not a joke)  my mom turned 50! My brother and I went to Rotterdam together to buy her some really nice presents.

We got her a necklass from Guess, a giftcard of the beautysalon she goes to, and an eyeliner sharpener, because she needed that. : ) She was really happy with her gifts. In the evening we ( My mom, my brother, me and my brother's boyfriend) went to a really nice Greek restaurant called: Limani. We had a great time and lots of fun.

Drawing of us

I work in a Japanese restaurant as a waitress. This morning when I looked on Facebook I found this drawing. It's a drawing of me with some of my colleagues. Yuanting made this!

Left you see Michael. He plays basketball and sometimes he says really random things like he dreamed about unicorns.

In the middle you see Ginny. Sometimes Ginny and I pretend we're on a catwalk when we walk pass the tables and look in the windows.

On the right you see Arnold. He has dreadlocks, but listens to rock, which I find a very funny combination. He is the one who asked Yuanting to make a drawing of us.

Then in the second row on the left you see Robin. She is always really cheerful :). She came later into our crew, but I'm glad she's with us!

Then next to Robin you see me. And next to me you see Michelle, who is being stalked by a guy from work, that's why she says "Leave me alone"

Indian girl

I know her face looks kind of weird, but I tried to do something Different. And for the first time I drew eyes that actually look the same! 

I always had problems with drawing eyes that look the same. Left eyes always failed, but these eyes look okay in my opinion.

Even though I'm not very good at photographing food, I really love to do it. I think photographing food and models are my favorite things to do in photography.

Tell me what you think about the photographs :)

The Hunger Games.

Saturday night I went to the movie, The Hunger Games. With my brother and his friends. I already read the book so I couldn't wait to see the movie it's so awesome. I really like those kind of story's /movies. Now I'm reading the second book of the serie. But that day we went to the movies I first had to work from 10 in the morning until 6 o'clock. So I was pretty tired because it was the first day of my new job. So when we arrived at the movies, my brother found out that he had made a reservation for sunday not for saturday. We we're lucky that it could be replaced to saturday, but it started at a quarter to 10 and we were there at 8 o'clock. So we went to McDonalds for an hour. Then we could finally watch the movie. But I was so tired that I couldn't keep my eyes open. So I missed big parts of the movie. That really sucked because I wanted to see it so bad. Now I'm going to see it again with my mom and not fall asleep. :)

Breathe Music Video

This is our first complete music video! Please tell us what you think.
The song belong to He is We.

It actually took us two days to film this all, but we had lots of fun doing this and we're sure that we're going to make more video's when we have summer holiday!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012


Karlijn and I have to make a music video for school. We filmed this at home, while everyone actually has to film it on school. We filmed this with my Nikon D5000. We are very happy with the quality, it's actually better than the cameras from school.

It's not finished yet, this is only a preview. Tell us what you think so far!

New outfit

Here I'm wearing a jeans and top from Bershka. The top is actually a dress, but i think you can wear it as a normal top too.

Lady Bug

First time in my life that I made a photograph of a lady bug. I actually really hate insects, but I kinda like this one.
