… that’s where a photographer needs to be to get the “money shot” so to speak. Here’s our primo papparazzo doing his thing:
This is Dikka being all sneaky to get a good shot of Anna in the Peekaboo tank.
We got some funny looks while Dikka was taking this shot. It is in the middle of the street, after all.
Sometimes, photographers have to get down and dirty. Here’s Dikka shooting of Anna in the Smooth Sailing dress punched up with red primary bangles.
Good thing Dikka has a good sense of balance or this shot of the Color Block dress might have not gone so well.
So, we learned that sometimes, you need to ask permission to shoot. Dikka brought out some serious negotiating skills and goofball charm to get that sticker on his shirt.
Look who wants to be in the spotlight. He was on a TV show once, you know.
Oh finally. Dikka’s got great place to rest- behind the fire hydrant!
How far have you gone to take that great shot?
It’s nice to know our passions can sometimes mean good news for people halfway around the world. Each purchase of these new cameras on Poketo means a donation of EUR 20.000 to the Red Cross Relief Japan.
This mini-Diana F+ is rightly called Jiyu (meaning Freedom). A light floral design and clean color palette lends this analog camera a delicate charm while letting your creative juices loose with dreamy or softly focused photos. Shoot using easily found 35mm film to produce either square or half-frame snaps. You can even shoot in multiple or long exposure.
See the world a different way with the Shiawase, Fisheye No. 2 camera. In Japanese, Shiawase means the spreading of happiness. Share this inspiring sentiment with this camera’s 170-degree radius shots. Your photographs turn into nicely rounded shots within each 35mm print. Shoot in multiple or long exposure for an extra helping of ebullience.

We love Jeana Sohn’s blog–a sweet look into her amazing life through her photography, food, home, little bits and pieces of life–and especially her taste in fashion. Since we last spoke and interviewed Jeana on Poketo, she has come out with a series on her blog called, Closet Visits.
Closet Visits is a look into the lives of some of the most creative and stylish women of Los Angeles–some of our favorite closet visits are from bag designer Claire Vivier, clothing designer Momo Suzuki, photographer Pietsie Campbell, jewelry designer Kathryn Bentley, and where many of these women find inspiration, the owner of LA’s Mohawk General Store, Bo Carney
Jeana photographs and interviews these women naturally, in their home and in their own style. It’s not a house tour, but, through their closet, their fashion, their jewelry, their favorite shoes…. Jeana gives us a glimpse of some very stylish Angeleno women.
