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.

I originally wanted to post these two photos individually, but one day I noticed how similar they looked when I viewed them back to back, and so I thought that the contrast between nature’s creation and man’s creation would look really visually pleasing in one picture together.

Without one picture complimenting the other, I feel like any one of the two would look kinda boring to look at lol. I get these thoughts all the time, but I'm pretty happy with how this turned out!

When I first began to mold my own style in photography, I could instantly tell what the image will look like in my head before I started on the post-processing. I still do to this day, but now it's like I'm seeing the world how I see my photos.

My imagination is so colorful and dream-like. It’s funny how when I was struggling with depression from 2007-2013, I wanted to express my mental illness through photography, and I had written out lots of thought-provoking and compelling conceptual portrait ideas in a journal; but being comfortable behind the camera and lacking any volunteers to model for me, I questioningly ended up creating bright and colorful photos of the most random things. Just the exact opposite of what I wanted to make (like how Spongebob tried to make fine dining cuisine but his food ended up turning into Krabby Patties LOL, sorry, that was a bad analogy)

It makes me wonder, if I had started any of the concept ideas in my journal, would it had fueled my depression and made it worse?

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! :)
