Had a bit of time today to play around with one of the images in the #FFA2K19
contest being held by a fellow hobbyist, @marco.visuals
, and his friends.
I had always liked a bit of simplicity. Not sure if this will count as an entry to the contest, but I had imagined what the model would have looked like with her whole face in the frame. Can you guys tell me how you find this edit? Would love to know.
SWIPE FOR EDIT PROGRESSION AND SOOC RAW.

PS. I really rarely do this now with my current shoots. I try my best to train myself in doing less edits on post, and more prep and correct execution during the actual shoot. Hope you enjoyed this one as much as I enjoyed editing it earlier today 😊🙏🏻
I missed you. She told me, the sand ran through my hands and I sat there, submerged in the ocean just swirling the floor around my entire body. It was like, more than the feeling of coming home. It was like that feeling of BEING home that was so so foreign to me; that was suddenly overwhelming me in it’s moment to moment experience. I sat there scooping up the ocean floor into my hands, staring at the patterns in the natural quartz crystal that collected itself there. Tripping. But, oh so fucking alive. So damn connected, it was like a huge welcome home party with just me and this entire expanse of ocean meeting the sky and this incredible island which was talking to me through pretty much everything. It was quite a productive trip in many senses; in that couple of hours I changed my entire travel plans. I thought of a bunch of new videos and an entire plan for this mediation and healing retreat I want to organise. I’m not sure whether I was just talking to myself or whether the island was talking through me, or I was just talking with creation but it didn’t really matter. And now that I am fully grounded into the normal reality once again, it’s all still there. My reality has indeed changed. I learn something new and shed some unwanted layers each and every time I go into that expansive, beautiful, psychedelic space. Manifestation; just those few moments of manifestation. Are actually all I even need to work with, for a few weeks or even more. I don’t think I’d ever come close to understanding how magical the universe really is. I don’t think I’ll ever come close to understanding what this island is even made of.

📸 the light was really dope when I got home today so I ran out with my tripod. 2 minutes later comes someone who’s like, hey do you need some help? And I’m like I’m fine thanks, and he’s like no I’m a photographer! Turns out he had the same ideas as me. We shot for like an hour. Check out his pictures on dionpa.com he photographs heavy metal bands lmao ☠️
