solsticeretouch I love writing. My to-do list is all hand written and color coded on a mini spiral sketch book. So naturally, I'm excited about buying new color pens! Do you guys go digital with your list or hand written on paper? #lepen 1d
  •   ettventer @solsticeretouch I switched to a notebook for my to-do list about 2 months ago, and it changed my life. Not even kidding. 1d
  •   keenenbrown @solsticeretouch what's the difference with that tablet vs the bamboo touch ones, besides the price of course 😀 1d
  •   acoldnorthwind Still handwritten, something about the pen and paper inscribes the thoughts onto my old brain 1d
  •   snandez Always paper. Makes me remember things better 1d
  •   solsticeretouch @ettvetner - Funny thing is I used to do digital because it felt more professional and clean, but I went back too because it just felt like the better way to go and it was! So much better to do it that way for myself. 1d
  •   solsticeretouch @keenenbrown - Buttons and the pen is different (better), this one also has a wheel if you need it to cycle through layers, or brush sizes 1d
  •   patrickmphotog I write through books upon books. I love my montblanc fountain pen, I feel writing my thoughts and to do list out with it makes me more productive. 1d
  •   keenenbrown @solsticeretouch thanks! I may have to save up for that one. The Bamboo ones tend to lose the "paper" feel of the surface after a while. I like how in the beginning there's some sort of friction between the pen and the surface of the tablet. 2h

solsticeretouch Have any of you guys tried using the new Macbook for the sake of curiosity? I didn't have fun using the new keyboard. It didn't feel very tactile and would have preferred the previous model. It felt a little harder to press down, making the outer keys less comfortable to use for me. I hope they don't bring it to the pro line. 4d

solsticeretouch I've been very guilty of this before, looking for peer acceptance more than what I think looks best. Know your market and shoot for it. 2w
  •   theadamdillon Extremely true. Shoot what you want to shoot, show the right people, repeat 2w
  •   epona_portraits Amen! I've always found it weird that so many photographers spend more time marketing to each other than to their perspective market! 2w
  •   vaibhavgraphy Right on Target @solsticeretouch 2w
  •   solsticeretouch @theadamdillon that's the perfect formula. 2w
  •   mohsintaha Well said pratik. True that! 2w
  •   lisbona.photography Saying this everyday to myself since i started "be better than yesterday and you will not die of envy" lol still struggle a bit, but always sleeping good. 2w
  •   davidjusticephoto I'm not shooting to impress ALL photographers. Just the female ones. I'm okay then, right? 2w

  •   kelbpics I think you may have tagged the wrong account for Joey but AWESOME work as always 2w
  •   solsticeretouch @kelbpics haha! Thank you for that, fixed! 2w
  •   learmiller Ugh he killed this shoot 2w
  •   klauspyc Really nice! 2w
  •   karssing That video is so funny! 2w
  •   sammie_saxon_photography Awesome 1w
  •   nickwestphoto Absolutely love the shot and this is a great retouch man, I appreciate how hard that was for @joeyldotcom to capture and he really nailed it with this frame, both the horses expression and the rider.. perfect! I have to say though I think the ad really wastes it's strengths, I feel like they should have either used a crop of the upper half or removed the wall in the full frame, the lower half just appears a little lost/blocky. I guess that was ultimately down to the agency though? Would love to hear your thoughts on this as a retoucher. 7d
  •   solsticeretouch @nickwestphoto I'm not totally sure! I think it must come from the direction of the company. :) 7d

  •   solsticeretouch @paulwarnerphotographer haha! :D Felix is beautiful too okay! 2w
  •   shphoto101 So beautiful! You and felix are a great team! Now serious question, what are you using lately to store and save files? Hard drives you recommend and online! 2w
  •   paulwarnerphotographer Lol pratik! 2w
  •   solsticeretouch @shphoto101 My working files are stored on my main SSD drive, and then each night, synced to an internal Western Digital HD. My computer has slotting bays so I can input up to 5 drives at once. I have two currently and they are mirrored. When they get full, two new ones go in. 2w
  •   shphoto101 That sounds awesome! Yeah I like WD'a products.. I have a 3TB external right now but I need to figure out a system with multiple backup locations! Thanks for sharing! 2w
  •   rrwvd I get an Annie Leibovitz vibe, very cool :) 2w
  •   sammie_saxon_photography An honor being able to say I learned from you. Thanks! 7d

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 3w
