Can you sum up Los Angeles? Los Angeles is interesting, layered, diverse in cultures and one of my favorite places on earth.

What is a perfect day in Los Angeles? The perfect LA day would start with a walk in my neighborhood, Echo Park, and then coffee and breakfast at Sqirl, followed by a trip to the newly-opened Broad Museum in Downtown Los Angeles. It’d end with dinner at my neighborhood favorite, Alimento.

What is your editing process? My favorite is VSCO. I usually import my photo into VSCO and play around with a few filters. My favorites are A8 and A9. I usually decrease the filter a bit and then upload it into Instagram where I’ll fiddle with the contrast and brightness a bit more.

Has Instagram/phoneography affected how you shoot? Not really. I feel like I still take the time to prop things and make my shots look as pretty as possible.

Can you give a couple tips to aspiring Instagram photographers? Post pretty and inspiring photos, duh. I think everyone knows that one. Also have engaging and thoughtful and funny captions. Let your personality shine! People love people.

Who are your three favorite Instagrammers? @francismallmann, @nna_posey and @socalitybarbie.
