White cotton while vertical is called a backdrop. While horizontal it’s called bedsheets. While wrapped around a girl it’s a tank top.

Before I used to always think street photography wasn’t really any good unless it included people. That the human element is what made that candid moment so special. Now I don’t necessarily believe in that absolute. Inanimate objects can be just as intriguing. Being observant to (and composing with) random geometry, lines, positive/negative space can be equally as candid. It’s taking the mundane and presenting it with a little bit more jazz…That, or I’m probably just talk bs again :)

Anyways. Does anybody know any cool LA street photographers I can check out?

Light and dark. Postive space and negative space.

Starting next week I’ll have a three-week open window to get some shooting done in LA/OC/SD for @veteranempire, lookbooks, and for portfolios. Who’s in??

I just spent waaaay too many hours creating magazine spreads for a design class. I had to created a front and back cover for an established magazine. The back cover needs to be an ad created for a restaurant from a previous project (and targeted for the same demographic as the magazine’s). Now, it’s time to get my lethargic body in the gym to undo all the sitting I’ve been doing all day!

Graphic design is like photography in the sense that the actual practice of it is not always as glamorous as people romanticize it to be. Just like photography could take hours of Photoshop, design could take hours of InDesign+Illustrator+Photoshop. Sure you get to make things pretty and artsty. But that comes by way of HOURS of working in front of a computer. And it’s most likely in a hoodie and headphones to drown out the world so you can concentrate making the slightest pixel movements (or picas, if you’re weird like that) that most people won’t ever notice or even care to notice. Then compound those little placement decisions with type/font treatments, minor copywriting, colors choices, sourcing appropriate imagery, retouching the photos, composition, etc. Pretty fun though if you’re into it actually haha.

#TBT to the time when I needed big guns to compensate. You know. For a small penis.
