how do you edit your sim edits / pictures?

I have a few things linked in my resources page to help you out!! but the new pic I posted I experimented with a lot of overlays and motion blur and weird stuff ahhhhh :-) I’m thinking of doing speed edit videos but I literally do the same thing for each pic it’ll probably be boring

Hi Emma!How do you take and edit your photos for posts?Do you have some programs to recommend or any advice in general?

Hi! I have post on my editing process here, but that is mainly for Instagram. With photos to my blog, I will generally just increase the brightness using iPhoto. I try not to over-filter/wash out the pictures. My main advice would be use as much natural light as possible, and don’t go well over-the-top with editing! By all means, have a play around with edit and see what you like. I just don’t like my photos to look over filtered but it’s different for other people! x

can i just say something?

when I was a kid, I told my mom that I wanted to be an actress when I grew up. You know what she told me?

She said, “sure, but you’re going to have to do it in China. America won’t hire you if you’re Asian.”

And that was it for that dream. 

Of course, that was just a phase - one of many, one I would’ve gotten over anyway. But what she said stuck to me. You’re going to have to act in China, because America doesn’t hire Asians.

And if there’s anything I learned over these years, it’s that she was right. Asian-Americans don’t get to see ourselves on screen. We don’t get to read about our deeds. And we get pissed. We complain, we shout, and people dismiss us because, oh, “the Japanese are okay with Ghost in the Shell”, and “I’ve heard that mainland Chinese are perfectly fine with Iron Fist.” Well, great for them. This isn’t about them.

This is about us. Asian-Americans. Asian-Canadians. Asian-Australians. Asian hyphen something. And the Asians in Asia don’t understand - because they can’t. They’re surrounded by media portrayals of them. They never have to fight for representation because it’s always there. They have no idea what it’s like to live in a country that sees you as other, and then to have to go back to your home country, to have your parents tell you “this is you, this is your culture, your heritage” and you look upon the faces of your family and you see nothing of yourself in them. 

Asian-Americans are not the same as Asians who live in Asia. We live in a different culture. Our values, our beliefs, the experiences that shape our lives are separate. 

We want to see ourselves in western media because it’s what we grew up with. It’s what surrounds us. Sure, we can watch K-dramas and anime and Chinese/Taiwanese/Japanese/whatever dramas, and a lot of us do, but it’s still not us

We shouldn’t have to go watch Asian dramas just to see a part of us represented. We shouldn’t have to move to Asia just to be hired. 

We deserve to represent, and be represented, as ourselves.

You will take this ship and Kat Morris’ poster from my cold dead hands.
