Shameless Plug

Just a shameless plug of LUMIPro as I was able to setup this shoot in about 90 seconds; with about four minutes in Photoshop.  LUMIPro allowed me to shoot so clean I barely had to do any Photoshop.  The OpenGL graphics platform and the scripting language gave LUMIPro a chance to really open up possibilities.  Share your photos on Flickr with the rest of the LUMIPro community.  How cool is the Second Life world as an artistic platform?  Seriously cool.

LUMIPro Spotlight Time!

*** Skips into the room nibbling on a chocolate bar followed by several people carrying large photos. As they start placing the new photos on the wall... ***

Oh, hello to my favorite people! I hope everyone has been doing well. Stefan and I have both been busy with life as well as planning the next LUMIPro release! Well today I was looking through the Flickr group, and you all have been sharing some great work. Well we all know what that means... it is spotlight time!

I am always so impressed by everyone's works it can make it hard to choose, but don't worry I will do another spotlight soon! Stefan and I would also love to hear everyone's thoughts on features they would like to see. We are also looking at expanding LUMIPro's Video Library so if you all have anything you would like to see tutorials on let us know! Feel free to drop Sammie Ansar (SamoanHoneyPot Resident) a note card with your ideas. At LUMIPro we not only want to bring you a great product but a great community experience!

Well until next time... Happy Shooting!

LUMIPro Special Spotlight!

*** Walks into the room followed by five beautiful women carrying large photos. ***

Why hello there everyone! I thought in honor of International Women's Day, which was this past Sunday, that we would do a very special spotlight. Today's spotlight will feature all female photographers! How about a peek?

Avi Choice Awards - We did it!

So cool to have won the Avi Choice Award!  Couldn't have asked for a better birthday present!

The reason I like the idea of Avi Choice Award is that it is a team sport.  LUMIPro has been recognized by many in various forums and settings, but it is always a small group or a single blogger making the decision. Honestly what I really see this as is a "hats off" saying the LUMIPro *COMMUNITY* has received its first award.  How cool is that?!

I would also like to take a moment to thank our miss LUMIPro for helping to drive this and rallying everyone together. This company and the community we have built could not be so amazing without her.

In either case, my hope is that the award helps bring other cool kids into our fun, sometimes trifling, yet awesome community of artist and photographers.

So whats next for LUMIPro?  Besides a "2015" update that I am prototyping now, we are going to expand the idea of the flash mob art gallery into something cool for our artists to use as a way to share their work on a larger scale. If we pull it off, my goal is to get this as an "editor's pick" in the destination guide.  Sammie is keeping her ideas a secret for now.  We will announce more as we develop the story further.

Thank you again everyone!  I'm still high!

Mr. and miss LUMIPro Featured in Pro•voc•a•tive Magazine's February Issue!

*** Walks into the room carrying a glass of water and some aspirin, stopping short and quickly pulling a feather from her hair. ***

Oh, hello everyone! I did not realize anyone was here yet, but now that you are I would like to say thank you to all of our customers who celebrated my birthday with me. You all helped to make it amazing! Today I have something so exciting to share with you all, Stefan and I had the honor of being Pro•voc•a•tive Magazine's feature couple for February!

We were so excited to talk about us and LUMIPro! We would like to thank Rosalee (Rosalee Rhiadra) and Jadelyn Stratford (Jadelyn McAuley) for working with our busy schedules. To take a peek at some of our secrets click here or ask for a copy in world. It is a great magazine full of wonderful things including feature photographers. 

*** Pops the two asprin in her mouth and takes a quick drink of water. *** 
Now that Stefan is done traveling real life, and I have finally turned 30, we look forward to getting back to it and bring you some great things in the future. 

Until next time... Happy Shooting!
