Some of you may have noticed occasions here and here where I have showcased slightly unusual photography with my hand crafted accessories on display. Today, for "Menswear Monday" I am featuring my boyfriend Shahin, who is wearing a dyed turquoise and banded agate necklace. Shahin is half Native American (a decendent of the local Chumash tribe no less) and I was inspired by his heritage to take these photographs. He is wearing traditional Chumash face markings with a vintage button up shirt. I love the bands of layered rock in the agate necklace he has on. Fashion tip: not sure if many fellows know this but I believe that wearing some type of interesting necklace is a great way to attract conversations in social gatherings. People often stop to ask about whatever stone or interesting item you have on!
I also took a photography class in school last semester and I have been experimenting with my new camera ever since. I'm truthfully not very skilled since the previous photo class I took was in high school where I only used a manual black and white film camera, this new Canon Rebel is a foreign object to me. However I somehow managed to adjust the settings to manual and remember a couple of my old habits. Please bare with me on this journey to improve my blog's photography!
