solsticeretouch My gf @bellakotak drew this doodle of her and I. I laughed so hard, I don't know why I look scared! So I thought this would make for a good caption contest what I'm thinking. Post below! 6h

solsticeretouch I went to my old high school to see an art show and I'm so proud to see the level of talent now! It's jaw dropping to see an already established artist that young. Go to her profile and check out her website @michelle_huangart 4d

Let's talk about those natural eyes and cheekbones! Eyes so light it looks like I dodged them.

solsticeretouch I can't tell you how happy I am with my new NEC PA272W. The fact that you can calibrate the monitor directly is such a drastic difference compared to, say, calibrating a cinema display or a macbook. It's like difference between trying to change the temperature of a jpg vs doing it to the raw file. Thanks to the SpectraView software in conjunction with the calibrator. It's perfect, literally. It sits next to my old NEC now. #nec #spectraview #xrite #retouching #setup #calibration 1w
