Get up 🌞 ready for Day 2 of work in #Seoul. (But first, what’s open in 홍대 for breakfast on a public holiday?)
Be like a water.
I have been wanting to take this photo for a long time now, I’d say a solid few months already. It has always been in the back of my mind, but I’ve never had the chance to take it. So for this week, I chose the theme that could work both for this photograph and for something Nadeem could drive inspiration from also. For this image, though, I always envisioned it with a male so that I could really frame his bone structure. However, when no one wants to model for me, I have to stand in for my own photographs. And it is fine that way. I don’t mind telling myself what to do and how to do it.
So having only myself, I “shook what my mama gave me,” and what she gave me was my luscious locks (actually I got my hair from my father). I love what hair looks like in water, the flow and ease it inhabits, except I do not have the tools to shoot photographs underwater, so I did what I could overhead my bathtub.
This photograph, like my recent ones, is made up of 5 different images. I had to compile pictures of my body with ones of the water without me in it so that I could use it to cover my torso and then the rest of the images were for my hair. As we all know, we can’t always have every day a perfect hair day, so lucky for me, I have the ability to use the digital world in order to put a couple “good hair days” together as if it were one.
And as for the water? I put milk from the fridge in it to not only bring the temperature of the boiling bath water down to a point where I could sit in the tub, but also, and more importantly, to achieve the milky, dreamy effect that I have been wanting for so long to try out.
I am really starting to fall in love with this photograph. I think there’s something elegant yet dark, sexy yet creepy, about it so I hope you love it, too.

Guess which photos I just got back?

Ladies and gentlemen, my best friend.
You should all go check out Rhianna Howard Photography! All of the photos she posts are taken by herself. She’s only 17 and takes breathtaking pictures like the ones above of Vance Creek, Washington. Her work deserves more exposure so go check out her blog!
