Recently I was on youtube watching Luis CK and his amazing stand up comedy show. If you don’t know who he is, just type his name in Youtube search and I promise you that you’ll have a hard time to not laugh.
So while I’m watching his show, there is a part when he get’s into divorce.
Something I’m going through right now and so listening to his show was a like a breath of fresh air.
I’ve been married for about 8 months and there were days I really liked but for some reason I don’t like to be a married man. I thought this would change as I get older but the opposite is the true. The older I get the more free I want to be.
And so, Luis put a big smile on my face.
Here are few things that cracked me up….
“Merriage is like a larve stage for true happiness which is divorce”
“Divorce is forever.”
“Nobody ever says my divorce is falling apart, it’s over. I can’t take it anymore.”
It’s funny but at the same time it’s true.

Back to photography…
I shoot in RAW. It’s because I like to preserve all the information and then play with it later in Lightroom and Photoshop
Recently, some of you have asked me what do I do with my images…
Well… Here it is… The short answer would be that I use Lightroom and Photoshop but there is of course more to it.
There is at least 15 steps I go through almost every day to make my images “pop”
And that’s after I have all the presets in place.
I don’t know how about you but I prefer my worflow to be as painless as possible.
I like to catalog my photos, name them properly so that I can easily find them later.
For me it’s all about speed. I hate wasting time on things that could have been set up ahead and save me time.
So to have a good workflow in place is what keeps me sane.
And the best place I can recommend you to go and learn the process would Ben Willmore’s amazing course called “Adobe Photoshop CC – The Complete guide”
If I could go back and save 3 years of my life, I would get his Lightroom and Photoshop course and be done with searching through mix-matched-all-over-the-place videos on Youtube where everyone claims to be an expert.
I’ve learned 95% of what I know today in just 8 weeks going through his courses.
Up to you…
