I have been using my 22″ monitor and 19″ monitor on my image editing computer for a while and it is time for an upgrade. Just bought two Samsung 24″ monitors specifically for image editing. After I carefully calibrate with the Spyder 3 PRO monitor calibrator, and they are ready to go. Bigger monitor is just making my image editing work more fun and the dual monitor mode of lightoom is awesome .
Very excited for two of my new 24″ monitor for my Image Editing Computer
Carefully calibrate my monitors and they are ready to go.
Using Lightroom with two monitors is just HAPPY. Making the image editing process more fun
Working with Sue and Andrew was a lot of fun , the really treated me like a good friends in the whole process, they have both their wedding ceremony and reception at San Francisco City Hall. It was actually a long day for me and two of my 2nd shooters. We started at 10:00am at Sue’s parent’s place for the Tea Ceremony. Then, we went to the Mark Hopkins Hotel for another tea ceremony with Andrew’s Family. After that, was my favourite outdoor portrait part. Since they rented a cable car , we got a lot of fun shot with it, but the best part was the whole bridal part shooting in Downtown San Francisco near Union Square. With overwhelmed greetings and “Woo Hoo” from the people on the street. The ceremony started at around 5:00pm in San Francisco City Hall, I was very excited to see my favourite floral designer Annie Siu again, as last year I worked with her in the same location and our worked has been published in the weddingchannel.com .
Not only met Annie, I also got to know an amazing videography team Lumitone . They provide instant editing service, it was almost unbelievable they can have the whole wedding day highlight video edited before the dance floor opened and be able to show all guests with projector screen . I am very impressed with the quality and the speed.
Pls look at the following wedding highlight pictures and slideshow I just finished Sunday morning.
