Beija at Venice Beach

During the shoot for the Fila x Snkr Inc Mindbreaker, Beija also wore a dope Nike fit that we did a shoot with at the famous Venice Beach basketball courts - my first time being and shooting there. The colors she put together in her fit really complimented well with the tones of the courts, making this shoot very pleasing to shoot and post process.

This shoot also encouraged me to do some brush retouches, which I rarely do, and I remembered a while back that I met another photographer who consistently did brush retouches and used a tablet as his main form of editing. What this further led to was my very first purchase of a tablet! I'm excited to see where that will take my photography editing. 

Beija and I got along really well throughout the day and I'm happy to say that this day's collaboration is definitely the start of a great friendship! Stay tuned for more to come.

The most breathtaking sunset at Shark Fin Cove.

I'm a huge sucker for sunsets (as most of us are) and once daylight savings return, they always become a fiery red with the right amount of clouds. My first time at Shark Fin Cove was definitely a lucky one 'cause I was blessed to see quite a magnificent sunset.

Also while editing these, I learned a few new photoshop tricks using the graduated filter - a great alternative whenever you need to dodge or burn your photos.
