Okay, enough bullshit. I hope all of you realise that all of that above is pure bullshit. All of this is just a play on the society we've become a part of, listening to everything from everyone. Caring about everything that goes on regarding social media. Watching instagram-, youtube- and Facebook famous people showing what they have, what they get, and what they recommend. You need to take all the lavish lifestyles you admire with a HUGE grain of salt. At the end of the day they're just people like everyone else. Some more lucky than others. Some who've worked their asses off to get what they have etc etc. Stop comparing yourself, just STOP IT!

Most of the time we're too busy looking on social media, admiring others lifestyle, wishing for all sorts of things, that we forget whats right in front of us, what's there if we just put our phones down for a while. All those new year, new me resolutions are mostly just pure bullshit. Or the new year, new chances type of shit, also bullshit. All of us have a new year, but the same chances as last time, it's all about grabbing the chances when they are really there and look up to discover them in time. New year, SAME CHANCES.

I was going to put a disclaimer on this post, but you know what, if you're that offended by it, it must really hit home in some type of way, and I'm not going to apologise or put a disclaimer because of that. It should make you think twice, and if it hits home, and you don't like that feeling, do something about it. Don't sit and be annoyed or be angry at this post or me because it hits right home and touched a nerve. Make the most of what you have, strive to learn and do more, and just be consistent. Don't wait on opportunities to come to you or drop down in your lap, make the best opportunities for yourself. Stay a bit childish!

Take care of yourself, including mental health and everything else about yourself, and stay true to yourself.

Sorry for the VEEEERY late post.... taken me ages to write it.. 

I don't know where to start, what to do or how to say it quite frankly.. Lately I've been stuck in such a rut, not been creating much, anything at all to be honest. Still trying to find my drive to finish cutting a video I shot over a month ago, which in it's entirety shouldn't be that difficult, I know I'm better than that, and that it shouldn't be that hard to find that drive.


I hate that I can't put my finger on whats causing it, what the sole reasoning behind this stage is, and why I'm struggling so hard to get back to business, I've had times where I've felt the major lack of motivation and creativity, but it's always found it way back, or I've found the drive deep in my core to make it come back. Now.. No matter how deep I dig, how far I go, how hard I push or how much I want it to come back, I want to produce so damn much, I want to learn, and to put up bangers for myself and all you watching, reading and liking what I do.

I want to improve my skills across the board, I want to not feel this way. Because in my head it's pretty unbearable to walk around like this. For a creative person to walk around and feel so demotivated and not creative at all, I feel drained, tired of not creating projects, not doing what I need to for my career. I feel kind of useless due to my lack of motivation. I feel borderline depressed. (no, It's not depression and I'm sure I'm not depressed).

All I want is to improve, so grow as an artist and person. To grow skill wise, to learn, learn and learn in all kinds of ways. It's frustrating, I want to push it, I want to force it, but at the same time I know that won't do no good, cause I'll start burning myself out... It annoys me how much of a domino and ripple effect my lack of creativity effects everything I do, my happiness and joy. In some way I want to push it and hope for the best, it might help. Knowing my hardheaded and stubborn self it should work.

I really feel like I should just force it, but at the same time something extraordinarily rare and unusual is telling me to let it take it's time, it's just like something in me decided to grow up, and be somewhat reasonable, risk assessing and more careful, and I really don't like that. I like not having good risk assessment, pushing my mental state and physical state beyond boarders. Yes, I'm perfectly aware it's not always good to be like that, but at the same time, that is a big part of who I am, my personality, and without that, Who am I than?

I've never really been one to think then act, or think then say. I'm more of a just do it, do it my best and hope for the best kind of person. I've slowly but surely started to push myself, and slowly feel that carefree person in me come back, but still really annoyed, due to the fact that I don't know what's been causing all this. I kind of feels like my mind is warning me or something that I'm about to hit the wall or something. Feels odd, don't know what it feels like to be completely honest. Something is warning me of something. Everyones been trying to tell me that it's bound to happen the way I put everything on myself..

But I'll end the rant-ish type of post.. AND I will start posting regularly on here, my Instagram, Facebook and soon my YT channel! (PS. I'll just drop some random snaps from the recent weeks as a little picture update ishhhhhh) pretty much a random assortment of photographs

I'm going to show quickly how it looks when i start from the RAW file, to prepping the file before I bring it in to photoshop. I'm quickly going to explain a little of what I do in a brief description below the pictures.

BEFORE

DURING

AFTER

I started with cropping the picture to a cut i found more flattering which I first did in Lightroom, did some basic correction in colour, clarity, contrasts, made him a tad bit tanner before bringing the photograph into photoshop. In photoshop I did some basic retouch, making sure to keep and enhance the freckles he has, chiselled those cheekbones by contouring using curves, as well as highlighting the highpoints of his face, as well as his forehead, lips and chin. I highlighted the parts of his hair that was slightly highlighted, added some depth in his hair. Add more contrast and clarity in his hair, both head and facial. Enhancing his eyes, really important step seeing you barely see his eyes in the before shot. I also did a little more cropping.

SATURDAY!

Saturday, oh Saturday, you couldn't have come fast enough! Cause guess what? Mama heading to London! again.... haha, but by the tilte i guess you already know this, AND by the time this is up I've already arrived. Not sure what to do while there other than family time with grandma, uncle and auntie. For the first time ever I've left my camera equipment at home in Oslo, so i'm apologising ahead for bad quality pictures, but I see this as a test to get to know my phone camera better and learn how to use it better.

I'll be filming a little "tour" type of where I am and I'll bring you along with me as i explore London and Luton, and just get out of my normal routine of planning everything and just winging it! As well as doing a little shopping, which I might even haul for you, not quite sure about that part yet.

I'll also be posing a little short tutorial kind of post with a few of my tips, which in no means is the right way, but it's the way I like to do a quick edit. It's how I aesthetically like my pictures to look before bringing the RAW files into photoshop. Might even show you before and afters of a photoshop file!

I recently shot with Mats Slyngstad (http://www.instagram.com/matsslyngstad) where we did a someone hype based shoot around the whole Yeezy hype, so here's a little taste of how it went!

For those interested my shutter was differentiating between 200/1s to 500/1s, my aperture was between f/1.8 to f/3.2, ISO at 100 steady, I have personalized my picture style as well as my white balance I set as I see fit at location. I differentiate between lenses.

Hope you enjoy the short post, there will be a more elaborate post very soon! I PROMISE

Sooooo I sat down and filmed a get to know me tag, which in retrospect was a baaaddddd idea... BUT as the savage I am I decided to use run with my tired, uncomfortable and ramble ass talking for like 1 hour to myself ... wow fun!

Watch my cringe worthy get to know me!

I'm also trying to find out days to post so everything is working well, so for now my idea for youtube is to post Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. As for the blog I'll be trying to post at least 5 days a week! so there will be content without being connected to youtube videos in any way!

Yesterday I attended an awesome party/event hosted by VANS oslo & Carlings, where Lotionboyz performed, there was an inside mini skating ramp, LED lights in fidget spinners, lots of stickers from both brands, was well as patches. And loads of other rad stuff, there was a raffle to win a pair of customised vans, or two winners of one pair each, as well as a t-shirt I think. Unfortunately I only have bad snapchat pictures and videos, but I will put them in here so you can get a little view of the fun it was and my best friend and I's weird humour.

Above is a badly snapchat filmed recap of some parts of the night!
