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.
