Hey everyone, long time no see! How are you all doing? :)
Timeless Season by DismayedSense
Timeless Season
It was all just a pile of leaves underwater but the cool thing was that I thought it was really beautiful how it all looked like every one of them were frozen in time.

The colors are all natural, along with the lens flare. I just gave the colors a bit more saturation. The blue colors are from my car, orange is from the sun, the light purple from the sky. I also like how I captured "floaties" in the bokeh. Y'know, those things you see floating in your eye. I'm still wondering how that is possible...

There is just so much going on in this photo that even I can't stop staring at it haha.

For once, I actually do feel 21. The past couple of years, I've never felt that way until 6 or 7 months after my birth date. Despite being able to legally drink now, I'm gonna have to break it to everyone by stating that I'm never gonna be a drinker. I want to live a straight-edged life :D Always have been wanting to keep it that way even when I was young. Everyone at my work has been asking me how I'm going to celebrate or if I'm going to the bar. Ugh no, I don't even want to be within a 50 sq ft diamater

I'm surprised I've gone this far without posting another journal. I've been meaning to, but it's always been an afterthought. I'm honestly so busy, I wish there were 5 of me to do all of the multitasking I have to do every day haha

Anyways, a lot of things have changed since my previous journal post, and after reading it, looks like I lied. I haven't updated you guys about my band at all LOL. Oops.

Turns out, we've disbanded, and I joined a new band 4 months ago. It's everything I've been praying about for a long time. The music is all progressive metal and hardcore. I know my hardcore music, but I'm just getting into progressive metal. It may sound like I'm at a disadvantage, but honestly, I've improved so much as a guitarist. I almost thought I wasn't fit to be a part of the band because I was such a passive guitar player. I didn't know how to play 5/4 and 7/8 time signatures, didn't know my scales, I barely had any technical skills until I started practicing with my new other guitar player (technically, I'm the new one). Within those 4 months, I'm now able to play almost every technical skill my other guitarist does. It feels so liberating having to practice for so many hours every day and seeing amazing results in the end. What's even better is that we're already searching for any opportunities to do first show for the next couple of months.

Also, I'm getting my first tattoo today. It's funny, I used to be so against having tattoos on my body. Just the thought of having something so permanent on me scared me to death a couple of years ago. But I've actually done quite a lot of thinking, and I'm positive it is something I want now. Hopefully I'll be strong enough to make it to 2 hours. That's what I've set my limit on. We'll see how it goes.

My name is Dustin. and I've been a freelance photographer for 5 years.

Main strengths: Experimental Still Life, Colorful Abstracts, Perspectives of Architecture, Nature Close-ups, and High Speed Splash photos

I'm formerly from Hawaii, but I'm now currently living in Washington.

I have an uncanny vision through my artwork. I like to keep things very vibrant and artistic while experimenting with colors, household objects, lighting, and techniques. I never like to stick with one category and I always use a different method, so I pretty much have a very wide variety of photographs in my gallery :D

I am also the 12,103,524th deviant to be registered on dA lol

Hi, your kind comment just brought me to your gallery. I love the diversity there and your use of the square aspect ratio. The color manipulations you add to your photos are powerful. Keep up the good work and a have a great day! :)
