NOT how I wanted to welcome my homie @ycimaging to Atlanta. But, can’t say it doesn’t make for great vlog content 😂. And super excited to be able to create dope content with everyone moving forward. Go check out his latest vlog showing his move to Atlanta & the accident all of us were in (NOT my fault ). Link in his bio.
This past year was amazing, I have no complaints. Travelled out of the country a handful of times, worked with new major artists, several big companies/brands & much more than I could fit into a 1 min recap. All from a camera & passion. Looking forward to what this year will bring. Thanks to everyone for the bday wishes #UNDERDOGS #RollinRecords #OTF
HISTOGRAMS • (NEW VIDEO LINK IN BIO ) A histogram can seem very confusing & intimating to a lot of people. But once you learn & understand the aspects of the histogram, getting the best exposure for taking photos & shooting visuals will become much easier! Let me know some tutorial videos you’d like to see covered down ⬇️⬇️!
@instagram is testing the idea of getting rid of the “likes” viewer. Personally, I think it’s a terrible idea. I know a lot of fellow creators, as well as myself, who make money from this app & have gained relationships with brands & companies because of this platform. I do understand the perspective from the people on the other side of this argument & agree it would bring back more creative thought out content instead of “for the gram” posts. But this is the social media era & there’s too much money & business moves involved coming through & from this platform, with the likes & analytics being a key component. Honestly, they just need to bring back what everyone has been asking for which is CHRONOLOGICAL order!
As visual creators, we sometimes get caught up in worrying about upgrading equipment or making sure the best equipment at hand is used to capture content. There’s a time & place for that. However, sometimes you just have to use what you have or you’ll miss the moments, which is FAR more important than the quality itself. This footage of @sonnydigital & his son was shot on my iPhone using a VHS app, the @reddigitalcinema was inside at the time.

Almost a year & a half later this still stands true. ・・・ This video is for ALL the photographers, videographers etc. If an artist/person/company chooses NOT to properly credit, tag or @ your work & they know who did it; They don’t respect you or your craft and/or they just don’t want to see you elevate & progress.

#UNDERDOGS winning, all smiles over here.
You ever wonder what it means to finally be living your dreams; Then realize that everything, it just ain't what it seems? Thought I wanted to be the greatest alive, Until I realized that being the greatest is just a lie. #UNDERDOGS
