Hybrid Photography: 40% digital photography + 40% analog photography + 20% digital photo manipulation I made a number of presets so I can repeat and automate the process.

Annabelle

Giving this series a second life . . . I shot this series way back when I was a natural light photographer and didn’t give a jot about camera settings. It was a much simpler time when all I cared about was the final image. Sometimes, I really want to go back to that mindset…

Klaudia

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…

Defrag [Me]

One of the things we can do with unused photos from a fashion editorial shoot: Experiment!

This Summer // The Trigger

To me, This summer is all about trying new gears, learning new lighting techniques, and translating my more-unconventional ideas into visual forms I tend to stick to the tried-and-true . . . But I grew dissatisfied with my previous works . . . In my eyes, they are pretty . . . but bland, not…

[Tokyo Fashion Week AW 2016-17] Divka

Tokyo Fashion Week AW 2016-17 Divka March 15, 2016 Do you notice the unusual vignetting and bokeh? Everything was created on camera.
