Many of you are like me and absolutely love portrait photography. One of my passions is shooting movement and using it to creating pieces of PhotoArt. Dancers are perfect for this type of work. To speed up my workflow, over the years, I've created Lightroom Presets and still use them today.

Here's a photo I just created using a 2 light setup and quickly post processed using Photoshop and my Portrait & Fashion Series Lightroom Presets.

If your interested in speeding up your workflow or need to breath new life into your current work, check these out. Here's 30 percent off to boot. Enjoy! Promo Code: welcome30   -  Goto http://jcristina.com

HOW TO CALIBRATE YOUR LENSES | A SIMPLE FIX FOR BLURRY IMAGES  -- Really good stuff here!
One of the most popular questions I receive from other photographers is, "Why are my images blurry?" Out of all the questions I get, this one is the most troubling, because 9 out of 10 times, it's the same reason.

IMHO, for #linux to really take hold on the desktop, not only would "MOST" of the game developers need to embrace the OS but so would Adobe. Photoshop & a professional video / audio / vector editor is needed. GIMP is great but it's not PS, Audacity is great but it's not Audition or Logic and there is NO video editor even close to Premier / Final Cut / Avid for production work. I've been #unix guy since installing BSDi in the 90's.  BTW: Love the show(s).. Keep the lama testifying! ;)
 
Ask me anything - (Linux, open source related) I will answer your questions on this week's episode of OS.ALT!

If ALL game developers would simply embrace #linux the platform would finally push WinBlows out of the OS market. OSX & Linux would be it.  Bare in mind, OSX is FreeBSD / BSDI at it's core anyways.

+Steven Countryman What reason is that?

And I trust the benchmarks of professionals who have tested OpenGL over DirectX and have gotten similar results as Valve. Their results are nothing new.

Finally … No more front / back focusing issues!!! As a professional portrait and event photographer having tack sharp eyes is always important. I can't tell you how many times I’ve locked onto a client’s eyes only to find the tip of their nose or their ear in focus while their eyes were soft. At 1.4f - 3.2f this problem is even more noticeable. Now, using an autofocus calibration tool no matter which lens I strap on AF is always spot on! There are a few tools on the market but this is the one I use. It’s affordable and just simply works. http://focuspyramid.com

Dropping daughter off for school

Watching and waiting for her to turn at the very last second look at me, smile and wave goodbye only to wonder how many of these special moments are left before she’s all grown up.
