Our good friend, Aundre Larrow, is no stranger to the camera. He possess an exceptional eye for creating delightfully warm, raw, and impassioned portraitures that spans across both his editorial and personal work. As a Brooklyn based professional, he holds the uncanny ability to tell a story with the captured human eye and provoke positive change in the process. His portfolio lives and breaths inspiring anecdotes, particularly his passion project storiesfromhere.com; a documentation series reflecting our nation’s sense of place and how it ultimately ripples diverse thought, economies, and identities in the human race.

I mean, the dude’s mad talented. Have you checked out his website and Instagram? Give him a follow.

While we pranced around the streets of NYC late October for the Halloween Film Festival, we were honored to have also filmed a tutorial with Aundre on the basis of editing darker skin. He not only discusses personal aspects of his creative workflow, but dives deep on the crucial understanding of what it means to distinguish darker skin tones during the editing process. A paramount topic rarely explored in the media industry today, Aundre examines such valuable pointers in a fluid, effortless fashion. 

And the pictures? Killer...
