I love taking days off and just spending them running around the city taking pictures. Usually I bring a friend along so they can model for me. They’re sometimes hesitant due to being “camera shy” but I coax them into doing it anyways.
My lovely friend Vanessa and I took a little trip to the Los Angeles Arboretum in Arcadia. We took a few photos of her niece for her 1st birthday, and then went on to take some more photos of just her and I. I love taking photos of her because she looks good on camera; and because she lets me boss her around.
I’ve had Instagram since the app first came out back in 2011. My feed has gone through so many different changes since I first downloaded the app. It was all about the filters in the beginning, then I wanted the whole picture to fit in the frame, then I only wanted horizontal pictures, then I wanted only pictures from my DSLR, and so on and so on.
Recently I purchased a Sony a5000 mirrorless camera and have been using that for all my Instagram pictures. I feel it really gives them a cleaner, more crisp look. In addition to that, I edit my photos using the VSCO app.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and I’ll be showing more ways to edit your photos using VSCO, as well as other apps.
