National Anthem

Ava and I did this shoot back in September but I never really had the chance to edit and post them. So, here they finally are! I don’t really get inspired by much when it comes to dressing up. I tend to dress in whatever mood I’m feeling. That day, I felt like a president’s wife…Jackie Kennedy perhaps. Ironically I had Lana Del Rey’s song National Anthem stuck in my head whilst editing which is quite frankly about Jackie Kennedy’s love for John.F.Kennedy. The filters and effects for each photos is pretty much different because I don’t like every photo to have the same filter so it’s not my poor editing skills, I purposely played around with Photoshop.

At this point, a stranger had started speaking to us because I looked like a chic homeless person always sitting on the stairs.

Can I just say, Ava told me to stare at the sky in anger. I have no idea what vision she was trying to capture but man did we laugh at this.
