Here are some of my favorite unused images from the series published in the 7th issue of Aether Magazine. (You can view the published images in my previous blog post) But if you shot hundreds of images per look, sharing one or two photos per look is a total waste . . . especially if…

Retouching

These past few days, I’ve been taking another look at the images I captured a few years ago . . . Even though I still love the photos I picked back then, I also gravitate towards some images I didn’t choose that year.Β  This particular shot, however, is still one of my favorite shots of…
