David Kawena - PINE TRAILS 02 by davidkawena David Kawena - PINE TRAILS 02 by davidkawena
While touring across beautiful England and Scotland, last month I had the chance to realise an old dream of mine and venture myself into being a photographer. My latest 'cover' on this page served as a teaser for it, and now I'm really proud of sharing the first picture from this photo shoot, which I titled 'PINE TRAILS' for the beautiful forest it took place in and a homage to my favourite song, 'Colour of the Wind'. I'm truly nervous and excited over it as I always felt like I won't have the same control over the visuals as I do with drawing and I feared I won't be able to connect to the subject and be able to visually talk about my state of mind and aesthetics. Luckily, my dear friends were there to help me in-front of the camera, by listening to me bossing around, and behind the camera, carrying my bags, lenses, forced to listen to Madonna's 'Love Spent' shuffle on my cellphone! But more then anything, they kept my spirit high all the way through - without them I don't think any of this would see the Light of day. So, thank you guys, very very much!

I hope all of you will find a common bond with my photography work as you do with my drawings.
Feel free to share and thank you for your endless support.

Stop reposting all your pictures every other day, you're spamming. If it happens again, I'm going to contact/report to DA. That's TWENTY FIVE reposts you did just today. And just to make sure you get the drift, I'll leave this message on every TWENTY FIVE of the reposts I got.

i want to leave a comment, but i can't seem to do much more than stare at the handsome model... the lighting is wonderful aswell, all the shadows across his body, it gives the picture a rather organic feel, and only his crucifix brings another perspective to the shot... amazing job.

I just can't believe there are good looking men like this on earth. Never seen one in person. Lots of stunning ladies but men? MEEEEEH none ;_;
I really love this picture, it reminds me a lot of my dad when he was A LOT younger, "italiano mafioso" face: handsome and smexy omnomnomnom
(It's kinda annoying when everybody thinks my dad is from the mafioso south and stereotype my dad ._. northern italy is WAY different, it's like an other world!)
Can't wait for the next shots ;) You are such an inspiration I could cry TwT

This definitely carries some strong emotions - how do you put so much power into one picture?

These photos look like drawings too in a way; IDK if you have edited them somehow. This guy here looks like someone taken from an old, mute movie - you know, what I mean? - he's not doing anything special, but his body and face expresses so much. So yeah, maybe it resembles mostly a movie still, but the chiaroscuro, the balance of white, black and greys and also great capture of model's beautiful, regular face make me think of drawing too.
