Damian Tsutsumida is a commercial and wedding photographer. He took his first picture at 13, shot his first job at 16, and officially went into business at 23. He is hopelessly infatuated with photography, which allows him to see the world in a way most people will never get to experience.

"This series of musician portraits was photographed recently at the 2013 Treasure Island Music Festival. When shooting backstage, there aren’t a lot of options for backdrops, in this case a white tent. I chose a look that flattened the texture of the background, yet still maintained flattering skin tones. The workflow ended up being a combination of the RadLab stylets "+Contrast (Luma)" and "Skinny Jeans," with selective layer masking throughout each image."
