Shot w a Tamron 15-30. Was really trying to figure out how to shoot this to make you feel like you were in the classroom... That was the first thought I had when I walked into this room in the Smokies..

Google+ gets AMP’d

Fast Web pages rock, and we’re making Google+ an even better place to read great stories by adding support for Accelerated Mobile Pages (https://www.ampproject.org/). Now when you browse G+ on the Web on your phone, look for the little lightning bolt icon to load articles up to 4x faster, using up to 10x less data. Enjoy, and stay tuned as we add support for more platforms and publishers in the near future.

I've been pretty heads down over here working on the last parts of this bundle that we are working on at Fotopromos. We setup this deal where ppl are getting over $3000 worth of stuff for $99 and its down to its last few days.. figured i'd make a post as to why I was a part of it. I figure, just the software alone makes it pretty cool . Add to that the training thats involved and it gets pretty intense. You can read more about it at the link below:

You can order it from here too: http://bit.ly/263RW5M

I have been pretty heads down - again- on launching my new education website. So much so that even my blog has taken a bit of a backseat...

Now that im feeling a little clearer, I did want to share a cool story of something that happened to me out in #Dubai that I thought was interesting. Its all about Totems through your life and listening to some of the voices..

+RC Concepcion​ Best of luck with the new site RC! And welcome back to GooglePlus. I've been gone about two years and it feels like a different place from when I left. A lot of friends are still here thank God, and I am looking forward to posting more as well as following your progress with your website. Stay safe and enjoy the holidays. :)

41 weeks since my last post? I had really thought I wouldnt be doing much more on the Google+ platform. There had been so many things that were just making it harder and harder for me to connect with people the way I liked. But there have been many changes.

I post about the my (and the content team) no longer working at Kelby in the post below. Figured i'd at least keep you up to date.

Promise to make my face a little more frequent around here. :)

Great videos on the building of the Wooden Dummy!  I almost felt like I could actually take on the construction of one of them for myself!  Keep up the great work!

Stoked about Palette!
Pretty excited about playing with the +Palette  interface for Lightroom. Figured i'd do a quick video talking about how fast the controls work with Lightroom.
