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!

Deuces !

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!

HOT NEW SHIT

A couple of days ago, or even two weeks actually I went to my old school to pick up my graduation diploma, and got to print some of my photographs, which is getting gifted away to the models, so I thought I'd show you a glimpse of the process!

Hope you enjoy!

"Go back to where you came from fucking nigger whore!"

(warning: there's unpleasant wordage below and harsh opinions. I apologise in advance for any misspelled words, and harsh wordage)

The last week or so racism has been a frequently mentioned topic here in Norway after the beautiful video one of Norway's top blogger published, where her co-actor is of african decent, the video received tons of racist comments about her co-actor. Such a beautiful man getting tons of hate based off of one thing, and one thing only. His RACE, being a black man in a white country, co-acting against a white, blond and light eyed girl. To be honest I'm not big on ready what we here call "pink bloggers" content, and I'm neither for or against it. But I really put my respect on her answer to the comments.

We live in a multicultural society, we live in multicultural countries, with multicultural friends. I honestly don't understand what brings some people to say and comment racist things like it's nothing, and when asked it's the person being subjected to racism's fault. He or she was asking for it. You must feels so fucking miserable in your own skin to say things like that, you must really be an insecure piece of shit to think it's alright to say horrible things to others, whether it's racist, discriminating or anything horrible. When saying you I'm not talking to the everyday person who doesn't slam derogatory and racist words to other people, no matter the race they are.

The tilte is just one of the few things I've gotten thrown on me as a mixed race person through out the years. I thought we'd be better at treating one another with respect in this day and age, I thought we were passed the time where yelling derogatory words were a common occurrence. It makes me sad to think that living in 2017 we're yet so far behind. I've heard it all from "go back where you came from" to "you must find yourself lucky to have been bought by a pimp here, you bastard whore dosen't deserve to be here!", I've been called every word in the book to describe a dark-skinned person, light skinned person, a person of mixed decent and race. But don't worry, it's just me that can't take a joke right? I was obviously asking for it when I was standing there minding my own business!

I'm really lucky I've learned to not let stuff like that effect me, that I don't take it to heart, I get told "jokes" like "what's the difference between a Norwegian girl and you? She can say hello to her dad", I've been asked if my father even has custody over me and much more. WHICH WORLD is that okay for anyone to say any of the things mentioned to any race at all?

I rather they say that too me, than to an insecure young girl or boy, I rather take that punch for someone who needs it, so that they can go that day at least and not hear that, to not be effected by idiots like that for just one day at least.

I'm not the person to really get involved in discussions over themes like this, but to be real I've had it with this bullshit! And it pisses me off that someone who feels so miserable and so bad about themselves think it's alright to ruin someones confidence, day and to actually ruin someones life. Yeah that's right, hearing words like that for someone who has their own struggles already does major damage to that persons psyche.

To you that have experienced racial slurs and behaviour, I'm so so sorry, and I honestly know how it is, I just want you to know that there isn't anything wrong with you, you're perfect just as you are, no matter what race, religion or sex you are, you are appreciated and you're STRONG! You're not the problem, you're not asking for it, it's their fault, who ever says anything derogatory or racial or discriminating to you, they are the REAL PROBLEM, not you!

If you ever feel bad for who you are, what skin colour you have, what pronoun you go by or whatever it is you find as flaws, go to a mirror, look at yourself, and know there is NOTHING wrong with you, it's who ever put those thoughts and doubts in your head. I know it's a cliché thing to say, but as a matter of fact, it's true. And a cliché is a cliché for a reason, it works.

Embrace you race, your sex, your looks, and be freaking proud of who you are! I'm so proud of my heritage, and being mixed race. I wouldn't change it for the world, even if I could! ❤️ Spread positive vibes and most importantly, be yourself and embrace who YOU are!
