Love Wins (no, really it does)

This past week I worked my way through Rob Bell’s ‘Love Wins.’ I realize I am rather late to the party, and, to belabor the metaphor, I was actually quite content to not even attend the party at all, as I find most books written by  prominent contemporary mega-church pastors to be dreadfully boring with…

Diversion

I snapped this quick picture earlier this evening. The basic idea is to set a long exposure time, toss the camera into the air and see what happens. I gave the camera a bit of a twist on its way into the air, which happened to give me these nice swirls. Enjoy.

Final Cut’s Final Cut

Over two months ago I made some predictions about the future of Final Cut Pro and the rest of the Final Cut Studio. Two weeks ago Final Cut Pro X landed and has ignited quite the firestorm within the post-production industry. On the App Store, which is the only way to get FCPX, it is…
