In your beach/ by the water photos, how do you get that strong dark aqua color? Same as how you get a grayish tint on your white wall photos? Is everything you do done with tone curve?

Asked by Anonymous

most of those adjustments are done with Capture One

I really hate it when my images are reblogged on to porn tumblrs. I shoot fashion / portraits not spank material. Its really annoying to see my images in a collection of girls showing their junk with guys junk on their bodies.

I appreciate the love, but please be considerate to the models and not have their images next to some amateur porn star.

hi, could you show us your photoshop style/process? and what's your usual setup for the studio shots?

Asked by johnnyyliu

a simple trick i do is to keep the color balance on the cooler side, pull the reds slightly to introduce a slight greener tint, bring in blue shadows and yellow highlights. This is all done with curves. 

As far as studio setup goes, lately I keep it simple to just natural light coming in,

My typical “White Wall” setups are just a strobe with a bare reflector pointing directly at subject.

For moody one light studio shots I will use either a photek softbox or a diffused beauty dish.

do you promote the idea of photographing all body types? ex. curvier people? :-) Great photos, I love them all!!

I do I just don’t have many curvy models inquire to shoot. It’s more about the face than anything else for me.

do you use VSCO filters?

Asked by ulyssesortega

I do not, VSCO filters seem to be ridiculously popular these days, but my color tweaking is done myself.
