Taryn has been challenged


Someone anonymously challenged Taryn, telling her to show her photography instead of talking about how she’s a photographer.  Taryn willingly accepted.

Anonymous asked: I don't mean to sound rude, but why go to all this trouble? Ok so this girl's accomplished a lot, and I'm sure she's qualified to photograph these guys, but why bother Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch because one of their fans wants so desperately to photograph them? Seems like a huge waste of time.



You answered your own question when you said she’s qualified to photograph these guys.  Why shouldn’t she photograph them?  Give a reason why she is less capable than photographers who have already photographed both Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. 

It was stated she’s a fan of Avengers, Sherlock, and Lord of the Rings.  Never was it stated that Taryn is a fan of Tom and Ben.  She respects them and what they do.  Taryn has never been one to glorify celebrities, to her they’re just people that take home bigger paychecks.

You can think what you want, but I personally think you see this as a fangirl trying to get attention.  Taryn is 32, not 15 so she doesn’t fangirl, and this blog was put together by her friends who support her photography career and would love to see this happen for her.

The best “fuck you” I’ve ever read.

I’m going to reblog this one.  I don’t fangirl.  I did in high school over 15 years ago [not for the boy bands either, I was still majorly fangirling over the film Newsies].  I’m over it.  I mean why would I fangirl over someone a year older than me?  Tom is 33 and I’m 32, see how weird that is?  Plus, Benedict is talented but I’ve only seen like two films he’s in.  Then heard his voice as Smaug - I still think Draco is a better dragon, but I’m a Sean Connery fan.

I swear, all society thinks about is “well the meeting is to fulfill fangirl needs” every time a woman wants to get in touch with a celebrity.  That’s one of the reasons I didn’t want to do the challenge but now after reading this I hope this becomes a reality.

So, I found this site showing ALL of Lewis Hine’s child labor photographs.  5000+ images - a vintage photographer/historians heaven to say the least.

Well, in looking through these images I found where Lewis photographed a family with the last name Dickerson.  My mother’s maiden name is Dickerson.  I mean yeah it’s far fetched that this family could be a relation, but it’d be cool to say “My family is part of the Lewis Hine collection”.

A video I made showing the transition between original vintage images to restored/colorized images.

This took me two days, my computer did not want to upload this for some reason
