Hey ladies and gents,
My name is Angeli Solano from Washington and YEARS ago I met Tori through a mutual friend. We’ve actually known each other for quite some time now. Truly admire her keen eye for fashion and design and what she’s doing with it!
Being an artist is one thing but being an artist making moves towards their passion I greatly respect.
Going forth with myself,
I’ve always had a love for art and design since middle school. I’ve been influenced by many which is why I don’t like to label myself to one specific thing. The way I see it, I’m an element of what my mind can develop and capable of anything I put my heart into. After all, that is what being creative is all about, right?
Anything design whether it be through photography, graphics, visual, web, and generally incorporating design in my life is what I enjoy most. Simplicity is definitely what I aim for.
To view some photos I’ve taken in the past few years, follow through my VSCO journal.
Below are some stuff I’ve created thus far.
Three general style tips I’d like to share from a creative to another:
1. Don’t compare // It’s easy to fall off when you compare your work to another person doing the same thing as you. If you are going to compare, do so in a manner of boosting your creativity and/or allowing yourself to be inspired and motivated. Art is an expression and having a creative mind, our expressions are endless.
2. Know your product // It would be useless to have a nice camera or have a program you don’t know how to use. I’ve often heard/seen it enough where people go out and buy the best/expensive camera and tools but not know how to use it in their advantage. You’re really only as good as you allow yourself to be. Two of my favorite programs when editing photos and designing are Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Take physical classes to expand your knowledge if you have to … and if not … Google and YouTube is your friend.
3. Love what you do // Cliché as it may sound; I will never not say this. Everyone can take a picture or draw a photo if they practice enough but those who love doing it are the ones who will have the better hand always. Plus people just know when you do love what you’re doing. It reflects off of you and your work. Try new things, practice, fail, but overall love what you do.
