One of these may look familiar, but I figured I’d take another pass to spice things up.

Like everything right now, these photos are edited with Rebecca Lily’s Pro Set IV — ”Vineyard” specifically. “Vineyard” and “Green Tea” are magical portrait presets — both enhance skin tones and bring out the colour in your subject’s face and eyes. As it turns out, “Vineyard” can also be used for a landscape or two.

In my Sweet Setup interview, I had said that all my Mac and iPhone wallpapers were stock wallpapers, as I could never fall in love with one of my own photos enough to see it incessantly each day.

The first photo above is the very first ever (believe it or not) that has lasted as my wallpaper for more than a week.

Eventually, after years of photography, something has to click.
