5 questions with keiko
Keiko Lynn is one of our earliest collaborators with her filter +pack, Stardust, and we continue to be obsessed with her!! Recently, we caught up with Keiko for a little check-in and talked creativity and life during quarantine.
Share a little about your life and what a typical day looks like for you.
I’m not a morning person, so I usually take my time with my coffee and watch an old movie or listen to a podcast. I do most of my photography during the day, all of my writing and editing at night, and always end with a book.
What colors and styles are you most drawn to?
I go through phases. Lately, I’ve been into more muted tones, pastels, and anything with a dreamier quality.
In regards to fashion, I love a statement vintage piece. Not everything in my closet is practical, but that’s what makes it fun.
What tips do you have for staying creative during challenging times?
Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time staying home and making masks. I bought a large spool of shoelaces when there was a huge elastic and bias tape shortage, and now I’ve been styling them in my hair!
I often look to the past and think, “how can I tweak this to suit me?” Even if it’s just a little wink and a nod once the product is finished, it’s a great place to start.
What’s one of your earliest memories of creating something you’re proud of?
When I was a kid, I decorated my pony’s stall for Christmas every year. I took it so seriously!
If you were limited to just one filter, which would you pick and why?
Right now, I’d go with Shrimpton. The blush tones work really well with my vintage decor.
Below is a before & after edited with Keiko’s favorite filter, Shrimpton. We love how drastically it changes the mood of this image!
