Golden hour reads at sea.
On a side note, the book is Stephen Hawking’s ‘Brief Answers to the Big Questions.’ I highly recommend it - a total perspective changer.
On another side note, I’ve been amazed by the performance of my new Fuji X-T3 and XF 23mm 1.4 R lens. My workflow has been simplified; shooting is fun again. I took this shot right out of the camera and barely edited it. This camera has a feel that I’ve just never experienced from any other before.
In class, we talk a lot about the ethics of film and photography and the role the creator should have. We also discuss a lot weather it’s ok to “steal” images.⠀
As humans, we all have a basic human right to our own image. Therefore, for a photographer or videographer to use an image, they should theoretically ask us to sign an image release waver.⠀
This should definitely always happen in any sort of programmed shoot situation. However, when you are out in the street photographing people in candid situations, it not as easy. Ideally, you should still ask for permission before taking anyone’s picture. But sometimes, doing so would mean completely losing the shot. Of course, if anyone expressively states they don’t want their picture taken, you should respect that.⠀
In the case of this particular photo, I recognize I took it without asking. It was just too perfect of a shot to not take it, though. But whenever possible, I do make my best to request permission before taking someone’s picture.⠀
What do you guys think? Should it always be a must to ask before taking someone’s photo? Or is it okay to just take it when asking means losing the shot?⠀
Ps: Swipe to see the view of the Alhambra the man was painting.⠀

Had a blast being back in NYC this weekend! 🏙
Every time I visit the city, I try to make sure I see something new, and this trip did not disappoint in that department!
On Friday, Scott and I headed to Hudson Yards to check out the new Vessel sculpture, and hopped on the High Line nearby for a fun day of exploring.
The Vessel is unique and FREE, but you do need to get tickets online in advance. You can choose a variety of time slots, but they do “sell out” sometimes. My recommendation for the best time to visit would be around sunset, for the beautiful views!
This sculpture is essentially just a bunch of intertwining staircases, so there’s not much “to do” there per se, but it’s still worth a stop if you’re going to be in the area. 🤗
What’s your favorite thing to do in the City that Never Sleeps?

Que si això del MIR no dóna resultats, me’n vaig als Alps a fer de Heidi.
Growing up I feared swimming in the ocean and that’s why I have not tried surfing yet! I want to overcome that fear!

been extremely busy lately with having my off-broadway debut in New York City to then traveling to Kansas City for two weeks of performing the show! Very crazy summer full of travels and theater, but having an amazing time! Definitely will be back to posting more, but for now, here is a photo of Horton Bay on Lake Charlevoix ⛵️

🧗🏼♀️ Hiking Tips from a Mediocre Hiker 🏔
I used to be intimidated by hiking, so if you’re like me, I’m here to share some tips to help you get started. I’m no expert, but I get there eventually, and that’s all that matters!
Best Beginner Hiking Tips:
1. The hikes with the steepest elevations aren’t the only hikes with amazing views! Choose a trail that hikes near a valley/ lake/ or meadow, and you’re usually in for great views and a flatter hike.
2. Wear proper attire! Make sure you’ve got good shoes that have support, are broken in. Wool-socks are your best bet. Sweat-wicking shirts are your friend, as are layers. Also, a hat is a good call... if for nothing else than you’ll stop worrying about how cute you look. 😂
3. Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate.💧 @camelbak Hydropak is my favorite hands-free way to carry water!
4. Bring snacks! Protein and electrolytes will help give you that mid-hike boost. (PLEASE don’t feed any animals or discard anything, including peels/ cores/ wrappers)
5. Avoid group hikes. It’s best to go with just a friend (or two) who are open to letting you set the pace. In large groups, it’s much harder to regulate speed, and you may feel pressured to keep up.
6. Opt for shorter hikes. 3-5 miles is a nice distance that won’t be too intimidating while you’re finding your stride.
7. Build in a reward system. I like to reward myself with a tasty craft beer after a hike. Sometimes having something to look forward to (besides epic views), makes the climb a little easier to conquer. 💪🏻
8. Embrace the fact that your pictures are stunning, but they’ll never truly capture the beauty you see in person.
9. Don’t beat yourself up if you need to turn around or backtrack to a different path. The best part about hiking is that you’re free to explore however you want to!
10. HAVE FUN! There’s so much of this beautiful world to see... it should be fun to explore. Take breaks, enjoy the views, tell jokes, sing songs, treasure the lack of WiFi (or cell phone service), and just embrace being one with nature!
Here’s hoping these tips have helped inspire you to get out there!🏔
Sony’s entry-level cameras still blow me away. The a3000 was the first camera I ever bought; costed me about $250 and I used the kit lens for about three years before switching to the 50mm. Took just over 5 years to upgrade to the a6000. Time is more valuable than money and understanding is more effective than high end gear. After all these years I’m still figuring out how to express myself through this medium, both through film and digital, but some things just don’t click until you’ve done it a million times. We’ll get there someday.

Hey, Paris-loving Pals!
I’m looking for recommendations for an upcoming trip to Paris with my mom. We have already done most of the touristy stuff on previous trips, so we’re hoping to see some new things on our trip in October!
Please comment below with your favorite thing to do in Paris, it can honestly be anything. I’m hoping this will help us get some new ideas! We love hands-on activities (like the macaron class we have booked), but I’m open to lots of options! ☺️
Tip: if you’re looking for a fun view over the city, climbing to the top of the Dome of the Sacre-Coeur is a beautiful and inexpensive option!

My passion for photography has given me a reason to travel, experience cool places and people. It has given me something in common with other people, and created a strong bond with them. It gave me purpose. Photo 📷 @silverseasweddings
If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

🇧🇦 (39/48) Most photos from Mostar show its iconic bridge, but the town itself is super cute too! 💜
📍 These cute facades are easy to miss during the day because they open up into souvenir shops. In the early morning you can see them in their full glory.
