mad is the photographer

“””developing countries””” 

“””third world countries””” 

…you mean countries that are still recovering from colonialism and other western intervention??? let’s not sugar coat the reason why their “development” was hindered and act like they are still in those stages because they are inherently inferior to western countries. the west saw their greatness and they left them in ruin on purpose. referring to these countries as developing or third world is fucking degrading terminology that takes away responsibility from countries like the UK and the US.

A Hannibal romcom trailer, because I am trash

I realized these were all the snapshots which our children would look at someday with wonder, thinking their parents had lived smooth, well-ordered lives and got up in the morning to walk proudly on the sidewalks of life, never dreaming the raggedy madness and riot of our actual lives, our actual night, the hell of it, the senseless emptiness.

Eloped! Just want to thank @andrewmorton for photographing this awesome life moment but for also being our witness. He’s a mad pro photographer if you need someone I would highly recommend him. I also love that @rachelvrogers flowers were just from Trader Joe’s & her dress and our rings we got off Etsy. That’s how to do it💥 So much fun! ❤️-Lil Big O

PWS MAD (Member’s Appreciation Day)

photo: Angie @novice-at-play / edit: Stephi @stephiramona

I’m a fan of Angie’s work and so it was amazing to edit one of her photos. It was fun, even though I was a bit nervous.
I made a lot with the graduation curve. Brighten the shadows and played with contrasts. I also played with the colors. I made the shadows cooler and the highlights warmer, which supported the mood I saw in this photo.

PWS MAD - Stephi

At the time we decided to do this, I had no new photos to submit, so I had to use one of my rejects. Of course, Stephi can make a fork look like a work of art and as you can see here, she salvaged my reject! I love the way she cropped it to give the sky more emphasis and also the way she brought up exposure and contrasts in the foreground to show the details of the rocks and waves. The colors are just… delicious!!  Thank you, Stephi and to the rest of the PWS clan for teaching this novice a thing or two… or seven!!
