I visited a couple of museum exhibitions last year and really enjoyed them. Here are the ones that stood out in order (from my favourite to my least favourite ones)!(more…)
Two summers ago, I planned a photoshoot with a fashion influencer I hadn’t seen in three years. She was telling me how nice the pictures I had recently posted on Instagram were. She looked pleasantly surprised. When I thanked her for the compliment, she asked me, “How are your pictures nicer? Did you buy a new camera?” I happily replied, “No, I became a better photographer.”
For the longest time, I feared not improving as a photographer. Sometimes, it is difficult for me to say that I am a professional photographer because, first, hello imposter syndrome, and second, I don’t take photos for a living. I only do it for my family and friends, for artistic purposes, or simply for fun. But I’ve come a long way since my first photoshoot. What makes a good photographer, you wonder?

This is the second part of the Coffee Shop Series. Following the first unexpected photoshoot (Tigress in the Jungle), I had a couple of ideas for what to do next. I had certain people in mind for specific coffee shops, but then I realized I was planning it all and not leaving much space for surprises, or just going with the flow, like it happened the first time. Therefore, I decided I would just text my friends and see who would be down to model for me. I decided I would either give them a list of independent coffee shops from which they choose one, that was if they had no idea where to go, or they would simply let me know where they wanted to go. This way, I’d give more freedom to the subject of the picture, letting them be creative, instead of me planning it all.(more…)

It’s like a “forgive and forget” and “move on and live, laugh, love” kind of day. As someone who wants to write a blog post every day of the month of March, I can’t help but think this topic is the best way to start this month.
I have lately felt the urge to wear, add, and eat more colours in my life. This year, I’m being much more healthier than I was last year, and my meals now consist of colourful vegetables that are a contrast to the meatless burger I cook, and that is such a refreshing things for not only my body, but also for me. Moreover, my room has always been “neutral.” In other words, it’s not colourful, but the nude-coloured walls and furniture are covered with Polaroids, postcards, papers, books, notebooks, etc. I therefore eat and have added more colours in my life.
