It just struck me that I never introduced myself here yet. A little odd, given that I had this blog for a few months now. Well, well, sometimes it happens that you forget things.
Who am I? My name is Emily, I'm 23 years old and currently lives in Kalmar.
I am currently working as a freelance makeup artist and photographer and Beautyblogger. Makeup and photography are my main interests. Beyond that, I have a small Chinese Crested named Denka (pronounced Dinka) as you may have seen somewhere here on the blog.
Why I chose to be a photographer for I'd name it Marla? Well, I've always liked to photograph. But I had put it half on the shelf when the old set of I'd name it Marla came and asked me if I wanted to take some band pictures on them. I'm not one to say no. But I know they got to nag on me a while , I had not touched a camera in almost two years and I had to borrow one from a friend.
All said and done, I took the pictures. Then I got more and more questions if I could take pictures of them live , and then finally I was asked if I could accompany them out and take pictures when they play elsewhere than in Oskarshamn and Kalmar. And this is one of the most enjoyable things I've done in a really long time.
So when we were in Stockholm for the first time and would eat in some small kebabplace it hit me. I should start a blog. A blog where I can share with you if traveling band and I will do together, what restaurants that are good or bad, The shenaningans the band does all the time. Yes, lots of things I could share with me here. So all said and done. As fast as I got home I started the blog and started fiddling with it. And it is not perfect yet. for right now, it has only a temporary design. But it will be so much nicer then.
Unfortunately, I know that people do not agree with my way of thinking. They've gotten the idea that I'm self-proclaimed band photographer when it was the band who chose me in the beginning, and then keep on trying to get me to stop. Unfortunately, they probably so scared and unsure of themselves that they have to take it out on others. Because they are not really anything yet envious of what I have for example
And quite honestly? I think like this: Those who make their way to bully is just so unsure of themselves that they are really doing is adding the anger , the energy they get from being jealous of others all the time and then goes around and press down other innocent people who have not done them anything. They should focus the anger and the jealousy on themselves. For it is not my fault that Miss. Anonymous is not good enough at anything so she must take the first person and make it in to her victim. Most often they are doing it because they really want to do it to himself.
So it's thursday. And usually I post some old ass pictures on my instagram and call it Throwback Thursday (like everyone else on there) And that is quite fun to do, because then you'll get to see how your favorite makeup gurus, or singer/bands looked a couple of years ago. And I though. That I will share the early Marla with you guys today!
Some of you may already know that they've changed their lineup quite a bit since they started in 2010, Although I didn't start to take photos of them until 2011. And when They asked me to take these photos I haven't touched a SLR camera in years since my first broke down. So when I look back at these pictures I just see all the mistakes that I know that I've could done better..
yeah. I KNOW THIS BLOG WAS SUPPOSED TO ONLY BE MARLA RELATED! But The peeps in A Hero Divine asked me Nicely If I couldn't take some pictures of them too when we were in Stockholm I couldn't say no. Mostly because I think It's fun to take photos ( Edit them is another thing).
And they did have the gig with Marla. So they fit right in to the subject!
You should go and listen to them If you haven't already!
First of all, Let us start with this Picture, mostly Because I know how much Joakim LOVES spiders :D
Like I said in the post before this; We went to Vasaparken and had a bit to drink before the gig. It was warm, and the humidity was kind of killing me and everyones hair! D: Note; Almost everyone had straight hair before we went into town. and when we got there our natural hair started to show, Except for Leo's. He must have sould his soul to Satan to keep it that straight >.<
Band photographer for I'd name it Marla. I thought that I could share my adventures with the band when they're on the road :)
