Caryn Drexl born 1980, is a self-taught conceptual and portrait photographer based in north/central Florida, USA. She has a unique approach to taking female portraits. Her style is like the photographic version of Edgar Allan Poe, with its imaginative details and vague sense of discomfort. She openly admits that “Everything I know I learned through trial and error or the internet.” Although she loves the look of film, and does own some vintage cameras, for practicality she prefers working with digital images. And no big cameras either, “I have girly little hands and a dislike for big heavy cameras that’ll break my wrist or my neck, so the littler ones suit me well.”

You can find more of Caryn’s mysteries in her Etsy shop, CarynDrexl.

One down, one to go, then this will be the last candle/fire based shoot I do for a while.

I’m the nicest rude person you’ll ever meet, I don’t give a fuck about anything but at the same time I care about a lot, I hate people but I develop crushes easily, I hate myself but at the same time I’m completely fabulous.

These are my photo shoot sketching abilities. Lets see if I can remember enough of what I meant to shoot this tomorrow.

I’ve always been frustrated with my studio rooms carpet so I was happy to find these vinyl backdrops of wood floors. Will have to put it down on some plywood when shooting, but at least I can make a mess on them and not have to worry!

I’ve started removing the candles from the old chair. Sad about it, but feel I’ve shot enough with it like that. Also found out the chair is barely holding itself together, will have to add some nails and hope it doesn’t collapse in the process.

Drying some new photo clothes.

[reblog all their art because it’s great and wishes we were best friends]

Aw, thank you! Although, being my best friend is pretty boring. You’re pretty much required to live in pajamas with me on my couch watching lots of tv and dude bro movies.

Wrote a quick blog post about using cheap (and often ugly) clothes for shoots [HERE] and I set up a pinterest board [HERE] to share some of the cheap stuff I find but don’t need that might better fit other people’s plans.

Making a shopping list for ideas I want to shoot. Have 4 of about 30 things listed, for 6 ideas. Balls! (And yeah that’s an armless baby.)

Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area — all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef. Reblog if this outrageous decision does not represent you. This is a massive disappointment, but we cannot give up hope. Sign up here to make our movement bigger than ever and keep up the fight to ‪#‎SaveTheReef‬http://www.SaveTheReef.org.au

Please Sign the petition guys. So many creatures will be decreased dramatically or even become endangered if we don’t stop it. Also watch the video. It really gave an insight into what would happen if this went ahead. 

like dugongs. they’re mad important and live on the reef

Hey, so GetUp! is deciding to take legal action against this travesty, and you can donate to their kick starter here

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has caved to the pressure of the mining industry and the Federal Government. The agency charged with "the protection, wise use, understanding and enjoyment of the Great Barrier Reef in perpetuity" has allowed it to be sold out for short-term profits. 

Late yesterday, they granted a permit to dump five million tonnes of dredge spoil inside the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. 

This destructive project is now allowed to go-ahead - unless we make a last ditch effort to challenge it in court. Click here to learn more, and help fund the legal challenge to save our Reef:
