Double Exposure

In photography, double exposure is a process where, for whatever reason (failure to forward film, on purpose, etc.), the film is exposed twice in the same frame. When film was the main source of photography, this process was rare but still possible (a neat trick with the Holga). However, with digital photography, there is no accidental or natural double exposure. This saddens me because what results of a double exposure is often extremely cool. Thus, I created my own digital double exposure using photoshop and various blending properties.

Inspired

I recently heard about the R&B artist Elle Varner and was quite intrigued when in the interview, they asked her about her unique style. This prompted me to do an image search to see what they were talking about. I was instantly in love with her quirky, eclectic style. Below are just a few of my favorite outfits of hers.

2013

Happy 2013!

I have a lot in store for this blog for this year. I've finally decided to jump start this thing again. I've missed blogging for a while but haven't been too sure what to make of it. However, I've had a little bit of a lightbulb moment while contemplating my possible new year's resolutions.

So keep checking back for an update, as well as a new layout. As for any religious debates that never seem to end in the comments, I will refrain from fueling them so they might as well cease.

Photography

It's been quite a while, hasn't it? I'm not even sure why I'm posting this out of the blue. I just feel like posting some of my recent photography that I've just completed editing.

Enjoy!

{The Art of Today}

The art of doing it today, now. Not in an hour. Not tomorrow. Today. Now.

I'm working hard on changing a lot in my life. I'm sure that's quite apparent to many of you. In particular, one thing I'm working diligently on changing is this horrible habit of mine to postpone just about everything. I've never seen myself as a procrastinator per se because I always am very diligent in my studies. I rarely wait until any academic deadline to start something. However, being this diligent in my studies deceives me into believing that I'm not a procrastinator.

I was wrong.

Everything I do, I postpone it for hours, day, weeks. I find myself constantly telling myself, "I will do that on the weekend when I have some free time." However, on the weekends I tell myself, "I'm resting now, I will do that during the week, when I'm productive." It's a vicious cycle. Doing laundry in a couple hours turn into a couple days. Answering emails tomorrow turns into weeks. This behavior disgusts me, I must do something. There's a quote I repeatedly tell myself,

"Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today" - Benjamin Franklin

I need to take this quote to heart. I need to stop procrastinating everything. One way I hope to achieve this is make a to-do list for each day. I'm always a list-maker. I love making lists. I've gotten quite lazy about paying attention to them, though. So, for now, my main goal is to actually pay attention to my to-do list. Only list things that I actually intend to do that day and work hard to not procrastinate. I'm open to any other suggestions as well.

{Exposed}

I only post about fashion. This is a fashion blog after all. Why, though? Why exclusively fashion? The title doesn't even pertain just to fashion.

I figured on occasion I will include photos of other things going on in my life. Right now, I've been enjoying taking apart my phone. I have so much fun tinkering with all the parts and connections.

The only reason I initially did it was because I broke the LCD and needed to replace it. To do that, I had to take the whole thing apart. A week later, the new screen died on me for no reason. To no avail, I took apart the whole thing and reconnected it. Then I had to take it apart again to send back the screen. Right now its laying naked on my table, parts sprawled out, covered with a paper towel. Cringing yet?
