hello, i'm karly, 22 years old, virginia tech alum (may 2011), lover of cameras and lots of other things.
i shoot with all kinds of stuff...you can see what cameras/lenses i use here!
i'm all over the internet:
thanks for stopping by!
*if i've blocked you and you're wondering why, it's probably because you have no photos available, or because your photos (or comments) creep me out. sorry, but both make me uncomfortable.
**if you'd like to use my photos, please ask me!

"I love Karly's stream because it has that true "slice of life" feel to it. She manages to capture the essences of places, people, and animals... and make them really shine. Should you ever want a photographer to document your life, I think Karly would be the one to pick! I love the natural colors that her images always seem to have, and I also adore the fact that she shoots film, and shoots it so very well. Her Flickr stream has been a real pleasure to come across, full of heart and loveliness."

You have been a contact of mine for some time now, and I should have done this long ago. But I’ve been thinking a lot about Flickr, my contacts, and my motivations for spending time on Flickr. There is always a sense of excitement when I get a new contact and begin to get to know them through their photos and comments. Many, unfortunately, seem to fade quickly and I find it difficult to keep the effort up to make ‘worthy’ comments on their photos. Even more troubling for me is the lack of response to my own work. I tell you all of this because in the time I’ve known you on Flickr, you have been one of my most consistent contacts – both in making comments and producing wonderful photos for me to enjoy.
What I most enjoy in your photos is the way they tell a story of your journey through life. You share what is meaningful to you in a way that draws me (and others) along for an engaging ride. You are always looking for ways to improve your craft. Your use of focus, camera angle, light, and composition is always interesting and most times very striking. I love your sense of purpose when you try new things such as the lens reversal technique, and the way you seek advice regarding new tools (cameras, lens, etc.) I appreciate that even with your busy life and schedule, you are devoted to taking and sharing your photos with the world.
If I were to suggest anything to add to your photo work, I’d like to see more photos of people. I know that isn’t always easy to do, but I believe that using your photographic skills on people will bring you another avenue of success. You have ‘the eye’ to see what will be interesting and unique.
Finally, through our exchanges of comments and messages I feel that I have not only gained a fellow photographer, I have gained a good friend. Seeing that you have posted new photos brings me a sense of comfort and anticipation. I especially value your comments on my photos because you spend the time to really look at them. I wish you the best of luck in all of your endeavors, and hope that you will continue to share your views of the world. If there is ever anything that you think I could help you with (even though we are on opposite sides of the country), please don’t hesitate to ask.

"if you look up summer in the dictionary, Karly's photos would be there. Her photos are so colorful and beautiful with tons of bokeh! and she hardly edits her photos!! which i think is awesome :D I get so inspired by seeing her creations. She is such a talented photographer and a great flickr friend :)"

"This girl is maybe one of the first people i followed on flickr. I love each and every single one of her photos and i can't believe the creativity she has. Just absolutely amazing and inspiring"

"the one thing that i love so much about karly's photos is how "true" they are. the colors are so rich and she does hardly any editing and so i feel like i really am seeing the world through her eyes. her enthusiasm for photography really comes through in each image.
karly i just want to tell you how much i appreciate your friendship here in flickr land and how much i look forward to seeing your photos everyday!"

"Karly's photostream is one of the best I've seen on Flickr. Her photos are all so naturally beautiful, and you know that she is taking the photos from the heart. Whether she is shooting digitally or with film, they're always fresh and inspiring. I love that most of her photos are sooc, because that shows that she truly is an artist, and that she is an amazing photographer. Another thing you have come to expect with Karly is of course, bokeh! Lots and lots of gorgeous bokeh! Karly is a wonderful Flickr contact & most importantly a wonderful person. :) Keep up the amazing work!

"karly's photos are gorgeous. i love how little she edits her pictures, which make them even more amazing to look at, knowing they're unedited. her ideas are great and she is such an inspiring photographer!"

"Karly is AMAZING, what makes her more amazing is that most her pictures are sooc! Karly is an inspiration to me!! I love to look through her photos and love to comment and fave them even more!!
GREAT job Karly!!"

"Karly is a great photographer. Her photos are amazing, and so creative. The fact that most of them are straight off the camera is incredible too. I always enjoy looking at her photo stream because I know she will always have awesome pictures. :) Keep on taking photos. :)"

"Karly has such a unique style of photography, one that I find inspiring! :)
One of the main things I love about her work is the overpowering feeling of happiness in each and every shot. I also adore how she captures every ounce of beauty of the summertime in her work.
Not only are her photos joyful and beautiful to look at, they are nearly all sooc, which I really admire. To create images of such splendour and beauty without the help of post-processing is feat that most photographers would struggle to achieve.
Karly is an inspiration to me as a photographer, and a blessing to me as a friend :)"

"Karly's ability to photograph anything, literally, makes her one of the most versatile young photographers on flickr. Every capture, portrait, body part, bug, animal, plant, anything she is showing us here has been well thought out and uniquely shown, and almost totally is SOOC, an amazing thing to do in this world of post processing. She is fabulous, she has an imagination that will not quit.
Go see for yourself!!

"Karly is definitely a rising phenomenon in the flickr world! :) I absolutely ADORE how almost all of her photos are SOOC. As time goes by, her photos only get better. :)
Great job, Karly! Don't ever stop taking photos!"
