Just keep on swimming, swimming, swimming

Underwater photos are hot. Maybe because it’s summer or because someone just decided they are. Within one day, I got three different newsletters about underwater photography and I saw it on blogs several times. Well, I love to go with the flow so I decided to dedicate an article about underwater photography.

And ofcourse, because I love taking pictures in the swimming pool. I remember when I was 16, we went on vacation to Greece with my friends – for the first time! – we bought an underwater camera and had so much fun with it. Wonder what happened to those pictures. Though, they turned out to be terrible as we had our fingers in front of the lens constantly. If you want to make some awesome underwater photos, this article might help you! For now, some underwater fun:

I bough a lot of clothes lately, but planning to sell some as well so keep posted if you’re interested in some items of my wardrobe! This vintage blouse with peter pan collar is one of my new favourites, I love the collar and I’m really into cream lately. Well, I’ll post the rest of my buys another time!

Am I in the picture?

If you take your camera to an event, people are always so extremely curious about your photographs. Though, usually it isn’t because they are so excited about my still lifes but they just want to know ‘if they’re in the picture’. I don’t know if it’s because we like to ‘tag’ on facebook but in general, people love to see pictures of themselves.

As a contrast with the work of Amirali Ghasemi, who’s in the recent issue ‘Report’ of Foam Magazine. He takes people, especially women, out of the photographs. All the photographs are made in Tehran and he wants to show the suppression -of women- in Iran. Though, when I was browsing the internet, I stumbled upon this serie of pornographic photographs made by artist Von Brandis, but without the people. Maybe with the information overload about one person, we don’t want to be in every picture anymore?

Blogger crush

Over the weekend, I developed a new crush in blogosphere. I’m always very keen on the British style, as you can see in my love for peter pan collars and ankle socks. So I was surprised I’d never heard of Foxtail and Fern before. She has such an amazing blog, with lovely outfits and great photography inspiration! Yes, I’m guilty of clicking the refresh button multiple times the last few days, waiting for a new update.
