My love/hate relationship with Apple is easing into hate/hate. When I heard of the Intel® NUC mini computer kits, I thought I'd look into Windows 10 and Linux. I just downloaded the Free (open source) GIMP 2.8.18 for evaluation as a Photo Editor.

I just received this email from Macphun. Here’s an app for a cleaner, faster Mac: CleanMyMac 3. According to Apple's support forums CleanMyMac is a scam ... about the same as malware. +Trey Ratcliff  I will not be upgrading to Aurora 2017, because of Macphun's questionable promotion of CMM3.

A lot of people wander around downtown, and shoot construction cranes, etc. Ming Thein's photos of Lisbon, Portugal, prove that downtown photos do not have to be banal and trite.
+Ananda Sim one of my favorite downtown photographers.

This post is probably going to read as odd to a lot of people, and I apologise in advance if any local Lisboans are offended by it. During the week or so I spent in Lisbon, one thing kept nagging a…

I was fortunate to see Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee at one of the clubs in Los Angeles, during the 1960s folk revival.

“Dollars always follow eyeballs. If eyeballs are going to live online that’s where all the dollars will go,” said Robinovitz
This LATimes article is about fashion bloggers/influencers, but I think that as time goes on it will include other interests.

http://www.latimes.com/fashion/la-ig-bloggers-20160809-snap-story.html
In early June, Arielle Charnas of Something Navy posted about the Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask on her Snapchat story. Then the frenzy happened: Within 24 hours after her story went live, the post was responsible for the sale of 502 masks, or $17,565 worth of product. Do the math: that’s equal to $123,000 in sales in a week, $527,000 in a month or almost $6.4 million in a year.

Story
Tagline
There is a difference between lighting and illumination
Introduction
I'm retired from the I.A.T.S.E. I have a low boredom tolerance, so I do a little advertising photography and consult on video lighting/production.

I've played around with a Flip Ultra-HD for several years, and got a Zoom Q3 earlier this year. They were so much fun that I got a Sony NEX 5n and will see about doing some real motion work again.
