Limited Edition iPhoneography from CanvasPop

 

This is a FIRST for me. I’ve never made my iphoneography available for purchase. So for a LIMITED time, 7 days, you can buy this image. It’s an honor to be working with the great folks @canvaspop to offer this limited edition print of one of my favorite images.

For me this image is about change and acceptance. I needed a reminder to embrace the now, instead of fighting against my current state of mind, wishing for some other circumstance. So, I captured this as a reminder to allow events, people and the circumstance of the moment to influence and change me, even the weather. Embrace the now, even if it’s raining. Thanks!
Best,

Non-linear editing system poll, which one FCPX or Adobe Premiere?

 

 

The results are in! More than 500 folks participated in my impromptu poll. Above are the detailed results.

As I watched the poll unfold over the course of the last few days, it continually held steady at around 60/ 40 in favor of Adobe Premiere, despite one user- you know who you are- who tried to stuff the ballot box, by visting the poll everyday and continually voting for FCPX for several minutes. Shame on you. You wasted your time, oh those precious moments lost in time like tears in rain. You could’ve spent that time learning Premiere ;)
