Most with a smart phone and eye for creative photography would probably already know about VSCO (pronounced visko). It is also called VSCO Cam sometimes. This app has been around since 2012. I'm going to share what I love about VSCO and why it works for me.
It is hard to fathom how a country can proudly hold a day of remembrance with the slogan ‘lest we forget’ in honour of those who lost their lives in the war overseas. Yet when it comes to the thousands of black lives lost RIGHT HERE under our feet, we are all forced to celebrate. Its hypocritical and its bloody racist!
2018 has been a year of growth — a year in which I learned to be more comfortable in my own skin. It taught me to find solutions to some difficult problems at hand. I’m very grateful to my close friends for helping me along my journey. The biggest part of this probably being…

Shannon is a fascinating photographer from Thibodaux, Louisiana. He loves the world of Leica. We spent about six days running around hilly terrain of North Vietnam. I had the Fujifilm X-Pro2 with the 23mm f/2 while Shannon sported is much-loved M9. I could tell Shannon has been using Leica for a long time.

Creatively speaking, when ego enters the mind of an artist, muse can no longer abide. For artists that create, the pureness of this state of being true to your art is next to none.

If you use a Fujifilm camera and use RAW files to shoot your image, your files will come up looking flatter when you import them in Lightroom. I have created the standard in-camera Fujifilm Presets for your RAW files.
UPDATE: 26 Feb 2019. As of today this is no longer as a free download. Please use the link here to buy and download the preset for AU$10.00. Thank you.
