The Little Game (Part 1 of 3)

I have a little game in mind, one that might be revealing and helpful to you in your work. There are three distinct parts to it. But I think it might be good to do it in order, so I'm only going to give you the first part today, for those who want to do it "in real time." If you don't want to play the game now, you can always go back and read all three steps later. But I think it will be most beneficial to do the first two parts before you know where it's heading—otherwise, I suspect you might b...

Object 6.6 Billion Kilometers Away Photographed in World First

These past few weeks witnessed absolutely amazing discoveries in the field of space and astro-photography. At 6.6 billion kilometers away, saying that Ultima Thule is far away doesn’t really do justice to the descriptor “far.” For some point of reference, the Sun is approximately 149.6 million kilometers away from the Earth. Ultima Thule is of a magnitude much, much greater than that. Another point of reference: Former last planet Pluto is about 5.9 billion miles away from the center. Ultima Th...

Elon Musk angles to keep his ex and ‘420’ Twitter drama out of lawsuit

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is looking to keep his ex-girlfriend Grimes and alleged acquaintance Azealia Banks out of the official record of a lawsuit concerning his that brought the SEC down on him. An attempt to subpoena both Grimes and Banks was met with stiff opposition by Musk’s lawyer, who accused the plaintiffs of attempting to sensationalize the case. As you may remember — though it seems so long ago now — Musk tweeted that he was “considering taking Tesla private at $420,” adding “Fundi...

10 Creative Ways to Save Money in 2019

I don’t know about you, but money has been on my mind a lot recently.

Manicure Inspo That Won’t Give You Short-Nail Shame

Raise your hand if you've apologized to your manicurist for your super-short nails. Now why do we do that? Long, bedazzled, Cardi B-inspired claws might get all the love on Instagram right now — and they are badass — but short nails are cute in their own right.

The Drone – a movie where a DJI Phantom drone is possessed by a serial killer

Drones are no stranger to the articles on this website, so a movie that features a drone it’s pretty relevant, right? Well… I don’t even know what to say about this one.

New ads for The Saint’s Rise

With my International Bookbub on The Saint’s Rise coming up in 6 days (Jan 10), I’ve started up a couple of new ads focused on the UK market (my biggest market after the US) to try and juice the ranking ahead of time. Here’s the FaceBook ad: I’ve never tried putting all retailers links in the body of the ad before, or leading with the major audiobook headline. I also rewrote the story summary – before it was primarily about the bizarre world, but now: All Sen’s young life he’s been hunted – by t...

How to take better portrait mode photos on any phone

Ah, portrait mode. Ever since Huawei pioneered the depth-sensing tech and Apple ran with it, it seems every other Instagram photo has that faux-DSLR look. Unfortunately, our smartphones aren’t exactly perfect at imitating the shallow depth of field of a real large-sensor camera, so it’s important to help the tiny sensors out when we can. And even when things do go right, there are some basic photography tips can help you make the most of your images. That’s what I’m here for; I’ve amassed some b...

Six Things You Should Do After Getting Your First Camera

So, you were lucky enough to receive the gift that sat atop your wishlist: your first “real” camera. I’m not making a personal distinction about what’s a legitimate camera and what isn’t, but when people talk about getting their first real camera they usually mean a mirrorless or DSLR body that can accept different lenses. The thing about getting your first real camera is that mixed in with all the excitement is a tinge of anxiety — you’re about to step into a new dimension, but you don’t r...

This Week in Photography Books: Josée Schryer

  It was 9 degrees below zero here this morning. (Fahrenheit, for all you non-Americans.) That’s insanely cold. An army of icicles hangs off my roof, each a menacing, translucent dagger that could impale a person without trying too hard. In other words, winter has arrived in earnest here in the Rocky Mountains. Ironically, our weather patterns have little to do with what happens in our part of the Great American West. Our mountains, rivers, ravens, cougars, and humans have nothing to do with it ...

This New Instagram Filter Is a Selfie Game-Changer, but There's a Catch

Image before and after the Paris filter. A few months ago, I received a pleasant surprise from Instagram. Sadly, it wasn't that my timeline was back to chronological order, but I did get a new filter. I saw it immediately because it was the first one to pop up as I swiped to the right. It's called Paris, and similar to how Snapchat has the "pretty filter," Paris blurs the skin so it looks immediately FaceTuned. It's like the contrast of the Oslo filter and the brightness of the Cairo filter had ...
