Playdate with Kara Haupt

We are thrilled today to introduce you to our guest for January!  Kara is an inspiration for many of us with her photography, art journaling, scrapbooking, random fun art and posts on her real life that we can all relate to.  She will be sharing an awesome photo prompt with us this Friday (Jan. 21st), and special project on Monday (Jan. 24th).....are you excited yet?!?!.....Well, in the meantime here are a few things about her you might not know:
  •    1. What is your favorite time of day to take photos?
On sunny days, the 'golden hour' before the sun sets is definitely my favorite. Though shade and overcast skies are easy and consistent, I really love the ways I can use sunlight to get an interesting photo. During the summer, I also like to use shaded area in the middle of the day. The sky is so bright and skin glows beautifully in the shade.
  •    1. What is the most foolish thing you are looking forward to doing this year?
Roadtrips and gross motels.
  •    1. What is the next artistic step for Kara?
I'm working on two collaborative business in 2011 that I'm really, really excited for. One is with my close friend, Kip. We're not saying too much about it now, but I can say that it's one of the most exciting and fulfilling things I've done in a long time. Working with Kip is a dream and it's been awesome to see the details of it unfolding, especially in the last week. The other is a fun side project that includes my handwriting. More on all that soon! I'm also working on a mini art journal class for February and ironing down definite goals for my photography business. It's going to be a big year.
  •    1. What is the most beautiful thing to you about New York?
Though New York is so huge and easy to get lost in the mix, I love the amount and diversity of people that live here. I walk or take the subway everywhere I go and really love to experience the different type of people I encounter in just an hour. Cultures and claustrophobia. Sort of what New York is.
  •    1. What is your favorite thing to do with photos?
Hmmm. That's a hard one. Either blog, tape them to my wall, or art journal with. Can't decide.

For more fun with Kara visit us again on Friday.....and see ya tomorrow for some new adventuresome and sweet photos!

Love, Gloria and Carrie
