laser-cut camera necklaces

laser-cut camera necklace

We’re setting up a brand new, fancy fabrication lab at school – of course I signed up as a Teaching Assistant as soon as I had the chance! Someone had to pick out and test the sewing machine… and, of course, someone has to learn how to use all the swanky equipment.

I can’t wait to explore the infinite possibilities of the laser cutter. First up? These little camera necklaces, cut from the wood scraps of other students’ projects. I challenge you to find an equally beautiful upcycled product!

And yes, they are available for sale at samanthasnap, my camera-love etsy shop.

a handful of glorious shots from my darling new camera. last weekend i trekked down to farmville, va, to see an old friend who i hadn’t seen in ages. it was a lovely, if very short, trip. on my way out of the quaint little college town i gave my new camera a workout. i’m super pleased.

i can’t get over this whole “depth of field” thing. SO EXCITING.


I can’t bring myself to take pictures for this post because soon, very soon, those pictures will look pretty lame.

Canon Rebel T1i : Digital SLR

This little guy is on its way to my house as we speak. My beautiful Canon Rebel T1i, my first digital SLR. Order tracking says it’s been “in transit for delivery” in my city since 10am this morning… I’m lost trying to figure out how UPS can’t make it from their office to my house in 9 hours. Silly order tracking, hyping me up and getting me all antsy.

I’m so excited!
