it was probably shopped

so, anyone else going to Photoshop World Conference 2017 this year?

i have been several times now and it is always a great experience. no matter what your experience level there is something for everyone there and the level of interaction and access you get to some of the top industry professionals (cough, cough, +Joe McNally) is unprecedented

not to mention the networking and friendships that are created with the other participants are worth the price of admission alone. i am loving that it is once again coming back to my neck of the woods in orlando this year and personally cant wait...maybe i'll see you there


IT'S IN ORLANDO! AWWWW YEAH! Our home for Photoshop World is the beautiful Orange County Convention Center conveniently located right off of International Drive. Enjoy Pointe Orlando with dozens of awesome shops, nightclubs and restaurants all within walking distance from the convention ...

Wish I could. Was considering going to the one in Vegas much less expensive for me.

deja vu

This is the "glitch in the matrix" version of#webcamwednesday

Just like last Wednesday, I am back in Orlando doing voiceovers once again today and it is another long session. The saving grace is that I am meeting up with +Gilmar Smith​ later in Mexico (epcot) for margaritas when I am done

#webcamwednesday is brought to you each week by the awesome +Isabelle Fortin

two down, one to go

did my first 10k race this morning and did it 1:15...not bad for this old man if i do say so myself. did the 5k yesterday but didn't track my time

tomorrow will be the half marathon (21k) and they are predicting heavy rain...we shall see what the day unfolds, time to get some rest

for the record, i am not a runner but my wife does has done the 5k the past few years and asked me if i wanted to do them this year as well and i said sure why not...i might be regretting that decision after tomorrow :O

happy new year to all that survived 2016 and made it safely to 2017. i had a relatively uneventful new year's eve, which as you get older you realize is a good thing

i have begun the task of purging the house of all things christmas which is always my goal on new years day and cooking some ribs for dinner later

i hope you all enjoy the first day of the new year

Maybe self-improvement isn't the answer, maybe self-destruction is the answer

for this month's art of self portraiture challenge we have the theme of duality

we want you to show yourself, with yourself in a way that perhaps shows two sides of your personality. this here is my shot for it and it shows that even though i can be refined, i am still a little rough around the edges

being i am a moderator for the community i am not eligible to actually enter the monthly competition, but as moderators we like to add our spin on each month's challenges to hopefully inspire you all to give it a go as well. if you would like to give it a shot you can find details about this month's challenge and where to enter you submission here:

fill my eyes, with that double vision

we have a new self portrait challenge for this month and looks to be another great one. so get out your camera and get a self portrait submitted for the event...did i mention there is prizes for the top entries?

can't wait to see what all you wonderful people come up with

details in the post below


January Self Portrait Challenge: Duality

This month we'd like you to experiment with representing the dual nature of your personality visually by "cloning" yourself in an image in a style similar to that in this article: . The style doesn't have to be exactly the same (you don't have to sit next to yourself at a table) but stick with just two parts of your personality being put at odds somehow, and try to keep it simple. You can represent any two differing parts of your personality - juxtapose public/private, inside/outside, at your best/worst, etc... interpret as works best for you.
Extended rules below.

Just post your entry to the “Challenge Submissions” Category in the Art of Self Portraiture Community (can be found here: If you’re not a member, you just have to join the Community to post, which is easy and we are happy to have you!
Art of Self Portraiture Community:

At least 10 submissions from eligible participants must be received in order for judging to commence and prizes to be awarded.
