From a dream I had. 



something tells me that Virginia is going to be the nerve-center of whatever social movement/counter-culture America has in store next.

pancakeshio inquired Hi! I´ve been following your work on fb and I was really exctited to find your tumblr site. I have a question, what app do you use to replicates the dynamic range and softness on your digital camera? I really want to add that effect to my photographs, do you also work something else on photoshop or the app gives you de desired effect?

I use the Cinestyle app to get the dynamic range and softness you are looking for. I also use a combination of the app and photoshop to further the desired effect on the images. 

Anonymous inquired How do you go about finding models? Do they volunteer, or do you physically see someone in public you find visually stunning and ask them?

All the models in my photos are my friends.
