How to Take Professional Travel Photos

Updated: 12/2/2018 | December 2nd, 2018 Travel photography. It’s not something I’ve very good at. I take all my pictures on an iPhone and, if they aren’t used on the blog, they mostly just sit on my hard drive. I’ve never taken the time to really improve my skills. Like learning a language, improving your photography takes time. Luckily, just like learning a language, anyone can do it! Travel photographs are memories. You look at a picture and it conjures up thoughts, feelings, and smells that...

IRS opens an Instagram account

Are you an Instagram fan? I have an account, but it's not my go-to social media platform. That's not too surprising since, according to various data, I'm not part of the app's primary demographic. The digital marketing firm Omnicore says 59 percent of internet users between the ages of 18 and 29 use Instagram. The Internal Revenue Service has found other research that shows an even larger slice of young Instagrammers. The tax agency says more than 70 percent of U.S. young adults age 18 to 24 ar...

LG is Dreaming About 16 Sensors and Lenses

The more lenses you have on a smartphone, the theory goes, the better it must be. At least that is what you would think from a cursory scan of the available headsets from the top makers. Image via LG. And it doesn’t look like that trend is going to slow down any time soon. Korean smartphone manufacturer LG just patented a design incorporating 16 sensors and lenses into a device. This isn’t new territory for the maker: The premier V40 ThinQ (above) is already outstripping competitors in terms o...

Tokyo hosts and the horribly drunk

Despite the clean cut and healthy appearance of the hosts staring back from the posters, their working lives are little more than one long drinking session after another. Basically, the more they drink, the better off they are, as their earnings are based on what female guests spend on them. A lifestyle that slowly but surely must take its toll — both mentally and physically. It’s a situation that’s the same for a good number of host club customers too, as many of the young women who frequent s...

How to color backgrounds with light – The Lighting Series #2

For this picture, we colored the background by using light. What sounds as if it should be straightforward does come with its pitfalls, as you’ll see.

Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald – Review

Saw The Crimes of Grindelwald today, and very much enjoyed it. J.K. Rowling certinaly knows what she is doing. It plays with such a different tone from the Harry Potter movies. Like a thriller, jumping around these exotic locations, with spies and spy agencies and grand, epoch-shaping forces in the mix. She’s remarkably good at inserting real stakes, and real hurt, into her characters and their backstories. She makes us feel it. The theory in back of the story is a little murky, though. In Harry...

Skied at Winter Park on December 1, 2018

My first day back on the slopes! We decided not to ski during the early season since we were still working on getting a little one-year-old comfortable with the cold. It turns out wearing gloves is not a natural or wonderful thing to a baby. Since the gondola at Winter Park’s base is not yet finished I headed up the only chair that could get me to the rest of the mountain: Gemini Express. It’s a nice little chair by the ski school area and I had never actually been on it before. Th...

Welcome to the stochastic age

In 1990, Kleiner Perkins rejected 99.4% of the proposals it received, while investing in 12 new companies a year. Those investees made Kleiner Perkins “the most successful financial institution in the history of the world,” boasting “returns of about 40 percent per year, compounded, for coming up on thirty years.” Nowadays, the Valley’s VC poster child is now Y Combinator, who invest in more like 250 companies annually. They’re famously selective, accepting something like 1.5% of applicants, but...
