[You In Those Little High Waisted Shorts]

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that I've been obsessed with these Levis 501 cut-offs and have been putting them to good use, even during the fall/winter season. It's a definite Element closet staple and since they are vintage they have this great worn in feel about them that keep you grabbing for them every time. I got mine at Batoko here. I love the ease of wearing shorts with stockings underneath for the colder months or even with tall boots for even more coverage. I shot this in Santa Monica with the master behind the camera, Teban, when the weather was a tad bit warmer. But I also love that you can get away with wearing itty bitty shorts in SoCal winters. I love shooting with Teban because some kind of magic happens. I think I mentioned in a previous post, but I love that whenever he shoots someone, he takes the time to actually get to know the person. I think this is what makes a stark difference between photographers who really knows what they're doing and those who don't. His passion behind finding individual beauty is notable. I also love that he uses film camera. I'm going to have to invest in one myself. The first half of these used expired Kodak film from a vintage 1973 film camera. Hashtag no filter, which is the best kind of filter in my opinion. It's very real and committed-- you can't delete it or retake it. It's there and in the moment, which is how all memories should be made. So, it's most definitely at the top of my Christmas wish list. ;) What's on yours? I want to know! Share with me in the comments section below!

Also, I was randomly going through YouTube and found this old music video I did with my friend, Jason. I thought I'd share since the outfit is similar to the one I posted today. Also sharing because I really got that deep-in-thought look down. Haha. Maybe good enough for a tutorial? ;P Enjoy!
