Google Pixel 2 – Stuck in Customs

Editing Photos from the Singapore Bar

Editing Older Mobile Phone Photos

I’ve been having a great time going through older photos I got on my mobile phone and processing them in Aurora. If you’re a Passport Member, then today, you’ll get to see me edit these two previous photos from Singapore. I went a little extreme with the HDR, but I was just kinda in that mood!

Editing Photos from the Singapore Bar

I just can’t remember the name of this place, but I guess it doesn’t really matter. If I wasn’t so lazy, I would do a Google reverse image search to find it, which I have to now from time to time because my memory fails. Either way, you’ll see how I use these JPGs in Aurora along with different presets to create different looks from two different angles of the same place.

Lighthouse with the Pixel phone

Daily Photo – Lighthouse with the Pixel 4 phone

No, this is not product placement for the Google phone! I just love this thing so much and I think it’s fun to share photos with it. It’s not as awesome as my Sony, but, honestly, 99% of the general public who knows nothing about cameras would see very little difference, if any.

Curious Lady at the Library

Daily Photo – Curious Lady at the Library

I don’t often do staged shots, but I did this time! I was at this amazing library in Tianjin with Curtis and one of the ladies from the Ritz-Carlton. I thought the photo would look better with a person in there pretending to read a book, and it does! It was pretty funny because in the first take we realized the book was upside down.

Having Fun in the Library

Episode 6 of My Audio Podcast

There are now 6 of my audio podcasts available on your favourite streaming services (iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify or in some regions Google Play).

In this episode, while walking on the El Camino in Spain, I talk with Kevin Kelly about one of his many projects, the 10,000 Year Library. And yes, you can participate! It’s a really fun concept… I won’t spoil it!

Daily Photo – Having Fun in the Library

When we went to the crazy library in Tianjin, we decided to have some fun and do some posed shots. That Curtis there on the right and the lady on the left was one of the ladies from the Ritz-Carlton that brought us here. She is probably the most giggly person I have ever met in my life. Literally, anything I would say or do would make her giggle uncontrollably. But, I actually like this quality in people… I like when they laugh at my jokes even when they make absolutely no sense.

Checking out Books in the Tianjin Library

Kalebra Kelby Interview

I do a lot of interviews, but I think this might be my favorite one! 🙂 Right after Burning Man last year I flew to Florida to make some classes there. I sat down for a long-format discussion with Kalebra. You can see the full 1-hour interview here. Note you have to sign in and stuff, but you don’t have to put in your credit card number or anything… not a paywall! 🙂

Daily Photo – Checking out Books in the Tianjin Library

This library was both amazing and confusing, in more ways than one. I spent about three hours inside of here taking all sorts of photos. They would not let me use my “big boy” camera, so I had to use my Pixel 2 phone. But hey, I must say, that Pixel 2 phone is pretty incredible. Now I’m using the Pixel 3, and it’s even better!
