#187 – Quitting your Day Job with Greg Benz

Greg Benz

A few months ago, Greg walked into his boss’s office and quit his day job.  This is a  huge move for anyone, making the leap from a steady day job to being totally self dependent and responsible.  Greg walks us through this decision, his plans for the future and updates us on the latest version of his very popular Photoshop Plugin – Lumenzia.

I got got hooked on photography back in 2000, when I was living in London for six months, and have been obsessed ever since. These days I call Minneapolis home, but continue to travel the world in search of incredible cityscapes and landscapes.

My goal is not just to create art, but to connect with other photographers to share the vision, tools, and technique behind my work. I don’t believe I’ve ever found a camera that automatically captures the beauty of the world I see, so I use Lightroom, Photoshop, luminosity masking, or HDR for nearly all of my images. These topics can seem intimidating, so my goal is to help make them a bit simpler through tools and tutorials that I share on this site. And in response to many questions I’ve received, I’ve created a page about the photography equipment I use and recommend.
