I use a Canon 5D Mark II with a 50mm 1.4
Anonymous asked: how do you edit your stunning photos? I am dying to know.
Hmmmm, I mean the process is very simple. For the retouch, I use Frequency Separation (no secret there) with a mixture of dodging and burning. I spend a large amount of time retouching my photographs. After that, I usually use the curves action I made and just change the tones using curves. It’s nothing extremely fancy and it usually only takes about 20 minutes for me to edit a photo.

So, we went to Greektown in downtown Detroit tonight and we ran into this homeless man who was just quite the character. So, I took the time to talk to him and take his photo. He talked about how he had served in the Marines from 1980-1986 and after he had finished the military, he started wandering the country. Drugs and alcohol were definitely huge aspects of his life. It is sad, but he was definitely entertaining. He let me have a whole shoot of him, which involved messing with the cops, flipping me off, and just being this crazy, hilarious guy. Out of all the photos, this one was probably my favorite.
