TUTORIAL | Neon Spring Sunset

So when Cate asked me to take some pictures of her wearing a pair of very 1980s-themed leggings, I couldn’t help but ask her for something in return. I’ve never done a more “out there” makeup look on myself or any of my friends, or anywhere outside of makeup school, to be honest. And I have never used neon or bright colours for eyeshadow on myself or anyone else, ever. So this was the perfect excuse. […]

It’s that time of the year again when Caterina from Kateidoscope.com asks me to take pictures of her for her blog, and I decide to do her makeup to match her clothing. I’m quite shocked at how well this look turned out considering it was completely unplanned – I just knew I wanted to use yellow. Everything else was decided as I went along with the brush. Makeup look details, explanatory chart and products list coming […]

Guess who got a new film camera. Yes, this crazy girl. I am so absolutely in love with the Minolta X300.

Luckily the owner of my local Kodak retailer has taken a liking to me and set this particular baby aside for when I received my allowance as he’d seen hearts pour out of my eyes as I tested […]

Hadn’t shot digital in such a long time! My new friend Caterina from Kateidoscope asked me to take some pictures of her for her blog (go and check it out, she’s one of those cool, serious, stylish bloggers). Here are some of my favourites. Brighton is a really nice set for this kind of photoshoot since there’s always an empty street with very pretty and cute houses, either very bright and fun or very neutral […]

Another portrait series. Since I’m dividing my rolls of film from Paris – three are done, one has to be scanned and the other one still needs to be developed (no idea what’s in there) – I decided to go with themes. As you probably (don’t) know, I just moved from Rome to Brighton (UK) and I am already missing my darling Gabri (@grumpygabri on Instagram and @ggirolamini on Twitter, so click both links and […]

Hello world, long time no see! I’ve been busy trying to find something to do with this horrid BA – Masters hiatus, so I ended up forgetting the little things that make me happy: long walks, architecture, photography and this blog. I just noticed I never posted the pictures I took when the man of my life came to spend a week in my hometown. We had a lot of fun and I made sure […]
