It been a long time since I have shot in film or processed it.. So while i was in Nashville over the summer, i did. I photographed inside of an antique shop. I really liked the results of the neon lights in black and white and decided that it is going to be something I would like to continue with, and plan to.
A couple weeks ago Don and I took a weekend trip during school to Myrtle Beach to take pictures. I wanted to do this for some time to work on getting more lifestyle photography and landscapes. I needed more work that represents myself to use for business cards, website, portfolio and a lot of other things. So this trip was definitely worth it! We stayed with my awesome friend, Devin who attends Coastal Carolina. Devin showed us around and took us to some really great places to shoot! Staying with her, we didn’t have to pay for a room and the only thing we really had to spend money on was gas. It was so much fun and I would really love to do it again soon! Next time, Focusing on one specific thing like surfing, buying a protective cover for my camera and really getting in on the action. I took around 1,500 pictures in the few days we were there so of course I can’t put up everything but here are a few. To see more, check out my Flickr page!
I recently went back home to do a project for my projects class and my idea was to take photographs that are fashion inspired by Abercrombie & Fitch who I actually just interviewed with. I used myself in the photos which was new for me and something i’ve never done before. My boyfriend also modeled and did a great job fitting the part because fishing is something that we like to do a lot in ourspare time. It was natural and I wanted to capture that.
So I just wanted to keep everyone updated that my website is still under construction but if you want to go over and check it out anyway, it’s elizabethgracephoto.com
On my website I have links to my Flickr page where I post almost all of my photographs.
There is also a link to this blog page where I keep everyone update with whats going on in my school and work.

I guess you can find me pretty much anywhere on the internet!
This semester I have found that most of my classes are pretty laid back because since its senior year, they want us creating work on our own with not as man guidelines. We’re making our own syllabuses, basically. Though I am in a portfolio class, so I am currently setting up my own professional website and business cards. I’ve been out every weekend photographing and coming up with new work for all of these things. In my art, I’ve been really trying to focus on lifestyle photography and landscapes. So this weekend I’m going to take a spontaneous trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to make new art work, see new things and take tons of photos. I’m so excited!
Last weekend, I went home to Deer Creek and decided to go and photograph the sunset over the water by the dam. Here are those images.
Last weekend I got the opportunity to work with A Moment in Time Studio again and help photograph Susan’s grandson’s wedding. I’ve shot quite a few weddings in the past but I think this was my favorite. It was absolutely beautiful. The colors, the theme and it was all so classy. You could see the love between the bride and groom so clearly, it was amazing. I’m very happy to have been a part of it and gotten to help photograph. I took over 600 images from the whole day but here are a few of my favorites that I narrowed down.
This is a small portion of the series of photographs I took for Kayla’s senior pictures. I learned so much over the summer at my internship with A Moment in Time studio and I wanted to put all the knowledge I gained to use. I photographed her in a really beautiful alley way in the city. Afterwards I took her into the studio and shot her in her dresses and band uniform along with some traditional poses.
