It's done! I have switch to Fuji X cameras. I'm keeping my LX100 though :)
Once a weekly post, My Life's Journey, like the rest of the blog, has taken the back seat for the last two years. It's tough to take the time to write again, but at the same time, I missed this. Like many things in life, the more you do it, the easier it is to find time for it, but skip it a couple of times and it becomes easy to find reasons not to do it.
Some news :)
New Chrome Camera Profiles for the newer Micro 4/3 cameras
Hey everyone! Yes! I am still alive!
Last Winter, Panasonic Canada lend me a Lumix DMC-FZ1000 for testing purposes. It took me some time to finish my review but here is what I think about the camera.
I can't believe it's been 6 months already. At the same time, I'm so used to the Panasonic LX100 that it seems I always had it with me. After six months of using it on a (almost) daily basis, I can say my opinion is made up on that camera. Do I still love it? Is my opinion changed from the two articles I wrote last fall? Continue reading to find out. :)
I'm a happy owner of the new Microsoft Surface 3 and the Western Digital Passport Wireless hard drive. That makes me even more mobile. Here are my first impressions
This week was the annual show of the street dance school that my family and I attend. Yep! We all dance in the family: Hip-Hop, Popping, Funky and Breakdance. I used the GX7 and the LX100. I did not miss carrying around my 5D Mark II with the 70-200mm. Not a bit! Take a peak to see the result.
This week's journey is special. We went on a (too) short family trip to Washington, D.C., last weekend for the Cherry Blossom Festival. I told my wife many years ago that I wanted to go there in the Spring to see all the flowers in the cherry trees. It is not an easy time to travel for us with the kids in school. This year, I decided it would be a treat for my daughter's birthday and mine.
This week is a special week: I will turn 47 Friday. It was a very busy week since it was shorter than usual with Easter.
Not many pictures or story this week. Spring came but Winter does not seem to want to go.
Spring is teasing us but Winter is not over yet.
I am still testing the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 this week. I have to send it back next Monday, so I brought it everywhere with me this week.
Last Monday, I talked about my digital workflow. There is another tip I should mention about how I deal with photos in Lightroom: Import presets.
It's Spring break this week in Quebec, even though Spring seems far away. This week, I got a Panasonic FZ1000 to test so all the photos were taken with that camera.
I use Adobe Lightroom version 5 as my digital assets management (DMA) and as my retouching tool. I go to Photoshop once or twice a year if I have a very specific demand that I can't do in Lightroom (Liquify for example). So here is my Lightroom workflow.
After a bit longer than 5 months of Tips of the week, I think it's time for a recap. Some of them gets buried with time. Here they are by categories.
It was the last week before Spring break and I made an Android app. It has been an interesting week.
Up here in Quebec, it's the Spring break this week. Spring seems so far away, but the kids have a one week holiday. The weather is warmer too so I think we will have fun outside this week.
