Midjourney Professional Photographer Vs Artificial Intelligence AI Digital Portrait
1st September 2022

I found myself deep into the Midjourney rabbit hole. And my goodness, how much I enjoy it 🙂There’s been a proliferation of creative AI lately. Dall-E, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion and Craiyon are maybe the first iterations of an entirely new creative ecosystem. And one that is already producing mindblowing results (and sparkling controversies). For my latest video, I picked Midjourney because it seemed a perfect match to my style at first glance,...

Dodge and Burn in Photoshop
10th September 2020

Dodge and Burn are tools often used by photographers of all kinds to enhance their images. To highlight details, improve contrast, make an element stand out more, brighten up eyes in a portrait… There are plenty of applications.

Photoshop Liquify tool
22nd June 2020

After updating to Photoshop 2020, I had the need to use the Liquify tool. Just for a quick retouch for an Instagram story. So I launched Photoshop and opened the Liquify tool… And couldn’t use it. Moving the mouse, I could see the cursor jumping from one place on the screen to the other every 3-4 seconds. The lag between my hand movement and the response was so bad that it took...

Wordpress Problem Solved
28th May 2020

I love WordPress. I have used it since it was called B2/Cafelog, probably around 2002. Then I used its public .com version for my successful food-blog and the self-hosted one for many of my clients, including big names like JP Morgan or Bank Of New York Mellon. According to the latest stats, in 2020 WordPress powers 35% of the entire Internet. It means it’s installed on just shy of 500 million websites....

The new update to Luminar 4 is here. It’s a minor update, but it has some interesting features and a few fixes. If you are remotely into photography, you must have least heard of Luminar.

Instagram influence on Mass tourism
6th November 2019

Despite being a fiery Italian (at least half of me is), I rarely publish rants on Instagram. It might happen on Facebook, where I still keep my private life and my friends separated from the rest of the world. But not on other platforms. Today, though, I woke up to fellow Instagramers from London promoting an app they are featured in (also hiding their involvement). And what I saw made me run...
