Sometimes It’s About Hitting Refresh, And I Don’t Mean F5!

It’s been a month, if not longer since I sat down to create a blog post. And if you follow me on social media you may have noticed it’s been about the same timeframe since I’ve posted any content over there as well.

The initial plan was to take two weeks to unplug and spend quality time with my wife and kids while on vacation. The two weeks quickly turned into four.

It just happened, but I suppose I was ready for a break from everything internet related. Don’t get me wrong, I love it all, the instant access we have to anything and everything. But I think it’s healthy to step away from time to time to recharge and have a good look at the world right in front of us, not the one on the other side of a screen. And that’s what I did, and I have to say, I feel completely refreshed.

As summer starts to wind down and the days begin to shorten rapidly, I’m excited for what’s on the menu.

Even though I’ve been MIA on social media, I’ve still been fielding inquiries for some very exciting projects from some amazing clients. I’m still in the negotiation stages and can’t go into much detail at the moment, but fingers crossed I’ll be able to share details with you in the coming months.

I also have a half dozen shoots coming up through September and October. They won’t be as tight-lipped as the ones above, so be sure to follow me on Instagram to catch all the behind-the-scenes content, and continue to stay tuned here on my blog where I’ll be sharing the final images and details from each shoot.

So with that, now the battle to get my kids to go to bed at a decent hour in preparation for back-to-school begins. haha

Above is a picture from a shoot I did a couple of years ago as a feature for Performance Auto & Sound Magazine (PASMAG). Sometimes I like to go back and try a different approach to the retouching on an older image. That’s what I did here.

Below is a timelapse of the retouching process.
