#nofilter psychedelics, March 2020(12 images)

Besides cropping, these photos are completely unedited. I was shooting in a room with no natural light and poor overhead lighting, so I had to get creative. I used large clear sequins from a sequined jacket (Mardi Gras costume), kaleidoscope goggles (also a Mardi Gras costume) and a SAD sun lamp from when I tried #boatlife in Seattle to achieve this look. I was feeling a little lost and depressed when I started this shoot (the first images were of me sitting in a dark room wearing string lights and blowing bubbles next to some candles- needless to say those images didn’t make it into the final cut ?)  but it’s amazing what a little creativity mixed with sparkle and light therapy can do for your spirits.  ✨?? The first few images in this series show my upper body as the main focal point, but also feature a reflection of my lower body in red, so pay attention or you’ll miss that extra little treat. ?  There are even more photos (all uncensored!) on my Patreon page along with my full collection of fine art nudes, so be sure to check it out and show your support! ❤️ www.patreon.com/sargenti
