This city is full of contrast. Los Angeles is beautiful, ugly, overpopulated, lonely, dirty, pristine, historic, modern, industrial, white-collar, full of lust and dreamers all at the same time. I feel this represents it well. You find beautiful white roses (my favorite) all over the city, especially in those places you wouldn’t expect like gas stations & fast food restaurants. Here I am remembering what made me fall in love with LA in the first place.
Recordando lo que me enamoro de Los Angeles. La ciudad de los contrastes como este, mis flores favoritas rosas blancas en toda la ciudad especialmente en lugares tan extraños como gasolineras y restaurantes de comida rápida. LA es hermoso, feo, industrial, lujoso, limpio, sucio, superpoblado, solo, histórico, moderno, lleno de Dios y lujuria, todo al mismo tiempo.

@Regran_ed from @suitedsuperman - 🤩Christmas came early 🎄A big $8k upswing 5-hour PLO session with 3 big hands stacking 4 Villains.
🖐Hand 1: Raised with A♠️A♦️K♥️K♣️ and caught a K♦️5♦️4♥️ flop, cbet and got check raised, got stack in vs Villain who had 8♦️6♦️3♣️X for $2k pot, board ran out A♥️3♥️ and we won.
🖐Hand 2: Same Villain from last hand raised UTG, 2 callers, Hero called with K♦️K♠️9♣️6♣️OTB, flop 7♠️3♥️8♦️, Short stack led out, Villain raised, Hero 3bet Short Stack & Villain called off, board ran out K♣️5♥️ for the nut nut 🥜 and we scooped $1.5k pot.
🖐Hand 3: Biggest pot up to date $5/5 PLO Early position raised $20, bunch of calls, Hero called with A♦️8♦️5♦️4♥️OTB.
Flop (7-way, $140) 7♦️4♦️6♠️- Villain 1 ($2k) led $100 from HJ, Villain 2 ($4k) called in CO, Hero ($7k) raised to $400, both Villains called.
Turn ($1340) Q♥️- V1 went all in for $1.3k, V2 called, Hero shipped, V2 called off for a $10k river sweat 💦
River ($10k-ish) Hero turned A♦️8♦️5♦️over and said ‘free roll’ before 6♦️peeled off - V1 turned his hand over and said ‘Quads’ with J♥️T♣️6♥️6♣️, V2 showed 8♠️5♣️Q♣️T♠️. Hero was disappointed but relieved to beat V2’s hand for the side pot. As the dealer proceeded to cut out chips from Hero’s stack to pay off V1, a spectator said “Straight Flush” in the background and Hero was stunt so did everyone else at the table. Hero ended up scooping the pot and couldn’t thank the spectator enough. What a crazy hand 😅 - #regrann#hustlercasino#gardena#redondobeach#hermosabeach#elsegundo#marinadelrey#santamonica#ventura#thousandoaks#beverlyhills#hollywood#glendale#burbank#pasadena#LA#losangeles#westLA#inglewood#longbeach#huntingtonbeach#newportbeach#anaheim#irvine#sandiego#lasvegas#casinos#tablegames#poker#gamblers
As we go into the Christmas period I think back to 11 months ago when I first purchased my land. I was 21 at the time and had no idea what was ahead of me. What a journey it has been, a very slow one at that. Finally seeing progress in recent months and looking forward to my slab being poured in the new year. Definitely grabbing the new year with two hands!! #firsthome#firsthomebuyer#mydirtpatch#burbank#noplacelikehome#burbankhomes
Color grading is something I'm learning to play around with in these types of portraits. I realize that I do it all the time in my fine art photographs but when I'm using a different color scheme that is polar opposite of natural skin tones, its....uncomfortable to say the least. ha
It's hard for me to separate what looks good artistically and what is widely accepted. And to make myself see color working in a certain way that it normally wouldn't be intended to, especially with skin in beauty portraits, has been a difficult adjustment for me. Because a part of me is thinking, "skin shouldn't look like that" or "it would never be that color", and then the other part is saying "why not?" -
- So here is a series of images I've been working on the past few days to play around with changing the color. It's not dramatic by any means but I'm taking baby steps with this process. The first one is my personal favorite because it has the right amount of warm tones counteracting with the overall cool tone in the picture and giving it a vintage feel, the second one was too warm for my taste, and the third one was too flat. Feel free to comment which one you like and why below or if you have any feedback/tips when color grading skin then let me know (: Model: @mariah_gagliardi#skin#beauty#colorgrading#photography#beautyportraits#studio#losangeles#burbank#california#color#vintage#art
