If you've been reading my Twitter, you probably know I've been trying to take some self-portraits recently. Anyone have any suggestions/tips to taking a good self-portrait? Like how to avoid that awkward pose look?

Meridane Design: An online jewelry store I recently discovered that has a really neat concept. Their intricate designs are cleverly crafted so that they actually spell out words if you look closely. I got a necklace for my friend that says her name.
"The photo album features the work of more than 100 amateur and professional photographers from around the world. We think (and hope!) it will inspire anyone who's ever picked up a camera and delight those who just like looking at pretty pictures. At least one will make you feel like running away, another like falling in love. One will make you feel like climbing under the blankets and another like having an impromptu house party. They make us think or feel differently, if only for a moment."

Later today, I'm going to head out to this photography class I've been taking at a local art school. On Saturdays, they offer a program for non-university students to sign up for art classes there. My goal is to achieve the soft, dreamy quality of most of the photos on my blog. Does anyone have any tips?
This is so fitting for today because it's raining cats and dogs! Today I will try to smile in the rain. What about you? Is it raining where you are?/Where are you? I'm always curious to know where my readers are from!

Behind the blog
Hello! My name is Micaela. Located in San Francisco, I am an 18 year old with a love for photography, fashion, and all things vintage.
My goal is to inspire artists worldwide to express themselves and not be afraid to take on challenges that confront them. Creativity is contagious. I endeavor to find beauty in my community and exhibit it to others. In this sense, I can inspire others to create for themselves while at the same time being motivated to create as well.
