just a vintage glow

yes, the outfit pics are edited a bit to add a vintage-esque touch to them. basically adjusting saturation contrast etc, really basic stuff, i'm pretty clueless with photoshop or whatnot actually (use gimp, don't have the program). a lot of my friends and some readers ask me whether i edit photos - i have a point and shoot, so yes, i play with brightness and contrast usually to make my photos as clear/real as possible . wish i had a good camera but to be honest, i don't know how to use a lens. it's next on my to-do list though! photography is just such a powerful art form and i desperately lust to learn...experimented with pics an hr apart with lots of sun coming in though at both times. the top has a faux-denim trim and is so lightweight, perfect for the 90 degree weather that hit nyc Thursday. kept accessories light since metal attracts heat/ my usual heap of jewelry would have melted me.

  9. fantastic pictures. LOVE them and love your jewels!!

    p.s. I play around with saturation and often over-expose my pics (digital) with lots of natural light. creates cool effect. wish i had a sweet camera, too but i am also a big believer that any camera can take a good picture. it's all about composition and lighting in my humble opinion.

    you have a super cool thing going on here! totally following!

  17. Lovely pics! I love photography and will start a proper art school in September... can't wait! :) I just bought a proprd DSLR (Nikon D3000) and I love it! You can use the basic settings and still get gorgeous pics! It is really worth it! I also posted a good photography book review last week if you're interested!
