Hello, I live in Paris and I work in the movie business as a producer, but I'm passionate crazy about photos. It all started 6 years ago when I was on holidays and a designer showed me what you could do with Photoshop to enhance photos, I immediately bought the Canon 350D and did a lot of training to learn photography and retouching. I mainly learned from reading Scott Kelby's books and Matt Kloskowski training over at photoshopuser.com Since then I bought the Canon 5d and 7D and I use Photoshop CS 5 and Lightroom 3. I also use Nik software plug in, Photomatix and autopanopro I worked on a project for the last 6 years called "Paris Cinéma", the idea was to take beautiful moments of lights in Paris to give them a movie look. Some of the photos are heavily retouched, some are not at all. All that matters to me is the emotional impact. Lately I started doing portraits compositing. Meaning taking a person on a neutral background and mix that up with a nice background. If you want to know more about my retouching techniques, you can check out my Iphone/Ipad apps on using Lightroom and Photoshop at : Retouching tutorials Iphone/Ipad apps I hope you like what I do if you have any technical questions do not hesite to ask. I still have a lot to learn and share ! Serge

Imperial Dune,

Here is a photo I took in The imperial Dune last weekend. Me and my great photographer friend @Duncan_Dimanche_Photography arrived just for the sunset. I kind of underestimated the ride from Los Angeles, we arrived late. But we had a great sky I was amazed. We got up at 5:00 and took more photos at the sunrise. It was so peaceful to be in the dunes, so much spaces, very spiritual experience. Which is your favorite place to shoot?

El Matador, Malibu

I just got the Iphone X, OMG the camera is really impressive this is my first try in very low light. I use #lightroommobile to take the photo in raw at 25 iso. It was after sunset the dynamic range of the beast and the low noise is pretty incredible. i'm doing a video comparing this to my old iphone7 and the Sony A7r II.

The maxim 'the best camera that you have is the one on you' take a stronger meaning for me. Plus the iPhone X is so much smaller than my iPhone 7 and somehow the screen is bigger.

It has been a while that Apple did not impress me so much, great product

Did you try out the new iPhone?

Manhattan, NYC

I was so lucky to have a nice sunset that night, last time I was there I didn't get to catch a nice one.

I was in the Brooklyn park, I used those wood pillars as my foreground element and I used my signature presets to retouch the photo.

Golden Hour, NYC

Wow yesterday after my speech for adobe at Photo Expo, I went to a private roof top with my friend
@michaeljacobsphotography, he is the owner of amazing restaurants in new york, best food I have had since I arrived, follow them on Instagram @thesmithrestaurant

This the view from the rooftop of his office. It was freezing but it was worth getting cold. I stayed until all the city light were on, but somehow I preferred the golden hour photos.

Central Park, NYC

I am in New York and this is a photo that I took part of our photowalk. It was so great to meet some of you guys, I had a lot of fun shooting and talking to the photographers who came, I always love to talk to you and see what you want to do in your photography, it's great!

I have a new special workflow for this photo that I used and I will reveal everything soon in a video coming out on the 1st Nov.

I'm blowed away by what I'm about to show you, let me know in the comment what is your guess of what tool I used?
