Conceptual Photography – Staging Your Ideas

  Many photographs aren't taken but made. These images are deliberately constructed through a creative process where the conceptualization and intentionality of the project match the importance of technical knowledge of the photographic medium. “The camera only facilitates the taking. The photographer must do the giving in order to transform and transcend ordinary reality.” Ernst Haas At some point, many great photographs require a solid planning process; others happen serendipitously, as a resu...

Cardi B's New Blond Hair Proves That She Can Work Literally Any Color

Cardi B is out here drippin' in finesse and living her best life from New York Fashion Week to red carpets galore. During her time in the spotlight, Cardi's been anything but "regular, schmegular," often switching her hair color. We've seen her rock an X-Men-esque frosty lilac look, along with jet-black and platinum blond strands. But on Feb. 18, Cardi showed up to the NBA All-Star Game sporting a subdued honey blond style we've never seen on her before. She shows no signs of ditching the hue, ...

A 13-year-old girl was arrested over an Instagram post threatening copycat killings after the Florida school shooting

A 13-year-old was arrested over alleged threats to kill school students. An Instagram post named a school nine miles from where 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The girl reportedly told sheriff's deputies that the post was a joke. A 15-year-old boy was arrested in similar circumstances earlier this week. A girl in the sixth grade was arrested for threatening to kill students in the same Florida school district where 17 students were shot dea...

YouTube is still the most lucrative platform for creators — with Etsy and Instagram trailing behind

The internet has sparked a new kind of economy, as creators find new ways to directly reach their audiences and customers. Services like Etsy, Wordpress, and Amazon's Twitch don't have a lot in common, except for the fact that they give creative people ways to make a living doing what they love.  And while Google's YouTube may be in the news for all the wrong reasons lately, it's still likely to be the very biggest platform for creatives of them all. As this chart from Statista shows, in 2016, Y...

5 Awesome Photography Related YouTube Channels You Probably Don’t Know About

When it comes to Photography related YouTube channels, we’ve all probably heard of the big names; Kai Wong (formerly) of Digital Rev, Ted Forbes of The Art of Photography, Jared Polin of Fro Knows Photo, and so on. These guys run very large YouTube channels that generate hundreds of thousands, if not millions of views monthly. Some of the best photography related YouTube channels, however, are small channels with fewer than 20k subscribers – some fewer than 10k. Here is a list of 5 of them that ...

Looking For Great Landscape Opportunities? Stay Where You Are

Ansel Adams asserted that “landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer.” By perusing landscape photography online and in books, I think it’s pretty easy to arrive at the conclusion that Adams probably knew what he was talking about. In the same statement, Adams suggested that landscape photography is also “often the supreme disappointment.” Again, I’m inclined to agree. But I think there’s an additional layer — a more psychological component — to that idea, which is that our pe...

Attention Marketers: Less than Half of Teens Will Use Facebook This Year

If your small business relies on marketing to teenagers, you may want to think of any strategy that avoids Facebook (NASDAQ: FB). According to new eMarketer research, this will be the first year that less than half of internet users between the ages of 12 and 17 will use Facebook. That figure doesn’t mean the social media site is dead by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, Facebook continues to add users at a positive rate. The data shows that 169.5 million users will access Facebook this ...

The Power of the Shoefie: Why These Shots Are the Most Liked on Instagram

You heard it here first: The shoefie has made a comeback. If you merely glance over your favourite influencers' Insta feeds, I bet there's at least a shoefie (or five) to get you tapping that heart button. I spoke to Who What Wear's associate social media editor, Isabel Mundigo-Moore, who told me that our top-performing images on Instagram are consistently shoefies—evidently we love liking them as much as we love taking them.Adding to my theory, Isabel recently attended a talk given by the origi...

Facebook was already punishing publishers before it announced its big newsfeed change (FB)

Last month, Facebook announced its plans to deter the spread of fake news on the social network by prioritizing user generated content (think baby pictures) above professional content created by publishers. The change gave many content publishers cause for concern: Would the social media giant's move reduce traffic to their sites ? Turns out, it's a problem they were already experiencing. As this chart by Statista, based on data from Shareaholic, shows, visits to websites that originated on Face...

Berlin’s Most Beautiful Men

photo: Hannes Gade Berlin might not have a reputation for being the place where the most beautiful men reside, but that’s only because we have to wear coats seven months of the year. So Rio, you can officially pack your bags!  Since Berlin men are so open-minded, liberal, and often don’t even mind stripping it all down on social media, we now have visual prove: Berlin’s got it!

Your Dream Vacation Awaits — Here's What To Pack

Maybe it's the short days, gray skies, or the vacation time you've been quietly stacking since the new year — but there's something about February that makes a vacation sound like the best idea since avocado met toast. The midwinter getaway can take many forms: a girlfriends' lake-house retreat, a solo expedition of a bustling, far-flung city, or a much-needed romantic escape. Just you, them, and somewhere with miles of sparkling sand and pounding waves (and preferably no reception).Of course,...

Pentax's Big News

Just announced: The Pentax K-1 II. But read on. Let's get the news out of the way first: The Pentax K-1 II is coming. It costs $1,997 for the body only, and with Pentax's remarkably sharp new 28–105mm lens for $400 more (a $100 discount from the cost of the lens alone). Okay, cool. But the most interesting part is that if you already have a K-1 you might not need to buy the new one: ...In conjunction with [the announcement of the K-1 II] [Ricoh] also announced an upgrade service for current...

Sophie Turner Reveals The One Thing She'd Never Do For A Role

Even without the bright auburn hair or the intricately woven braids, Sophie Turner is still very much her: Sansa Stark, the cunning, tenacious Lady of Winterfell (and one of last two surviving Stark children — unless you count Bran, and we don’t) on HBO's Game of Thrones. The role (and the defining red hue) has been part of the star's life since the age of 13, and although she may be back to her natural blond color now, its significance still remains.During our interview, Turner swiftly shifts ...

Here’s what the responses confirmed: We are articulate, we are passionate, we are in pain, we are hungry, we are wise, we are lost, we are longing for connection—intensely. We are talented, scared, tired, we are not entirely well. We are addicted. We are hilarious, insecure, highly intelligent, productive and EFFECTIVE and v...

The sender can now choose to allow recipients to view the message once, replay it temporarily, or see a permanent thumbnail in the chat log.  Instagram until now allowed all messages to be replayed temporarily before they disappear permanently. On the flip side, Snapchat doesn't offer users any control over the nature of private chats. On...

I Used Vagisil as a Primer, and Judge Me All You Want, but It Works Like a F*cking Charm

If you told me a year ago that I would be that girl applying Vagisil as a makeup primer and heading off to work for the day, I probably would've called you crazy and moonwalked away. But lo and behold, here I am, wearing a cream meant to treat vaginal irritation, in my New York City office, on my face. And I have to say, it's pretty effective - and I truly don't know how to feel about it. Like any experiment worth its weight, the whole thing began as a dare. It started when I was doing a slow...
