Trip to LA: Long Beach Aquarium and Huntington Gardens

Part Two of my week-long vacation in LA was a trip to both an aquarium and a garden. Both were truly spectacular. I took lots of photos for you readers to enjoy. By the way- I'm hoping to post some actual content other than photos in a bit here friends. I'm sorry everything a bit in transition right now, I'm cleaning out basically my entire life and thinking really hard about what I want my internet presence to be this school year. Also youtube update- for those of you who are wondering it's still happening, I'm basically just trying to figure out how to position a camera above me while I'm drawing. If anyone has any tips on that let me know haha. Thank you friends <3

    1. Aw thank you :) The jellyfish were SO amazing. Wow they are beautiful, the Earth is so awesome. Yeahhhh I'm coming to terms with the fact that I'm just going to have to buy a proper stand. Bleh, but it'll be worth it in the long run. I technically do, but there's no art videos on it yet. I'll do a big announcement once it gets going, don't worry-- I'm so honored I already have a subscriber haha <3

  2. ARE THOSE GIANT CACTUS? OMG.

    And the whole camera situation... Easiest way is to get a tripod and set it up so that it is behind you and looking down at the paper you are drawing on. It's really difficult to place a camera at a good angle for drawing without a tripod.

    1. YES I KNOW!

      Yeah I figured such. I have a tripod but no good camera, so I'm working stuff out to see how it goes. I was going to try to film it on my phone (is that awful? I don't know) in which case I'd have to get a new stand. I'm new at this, but learning. Thank you for the tip!

  3. My favorite photo has got to be the second one of the tree. ^.^ For positioning a camera, I agree with V-- a tripod is a must! You could also orient the tripod (since a lot of them can bend down facing) above you drawing.

    1. Ah yes, it's a little bonsai! So cute. Yeah-- I hope I can figure it out, I appreciate both of your guys' help a lot. I think that pointing it down like you said might be a better bet because the angle wouldn't distort the piece since it's looking directly down at it. Thank you so much for the advice :)
