Questions / Answers about my Life in France

    Where do you store everything you buy at the brocantes  to be sold later? In my house, in our place in Paris, in my studio, under my bed, in my closets, in the garage, between the sheets, under pillows, stacked on the bookshelves, on the chairs who needs to sit? Stacked in the corner, on the top on my head.       Do you have someone who packs it up and ships it out? Do you do your own bookkeeping? All of which are time-consuming  chores.   30 percent of what I do regarding ...

Stepping Out

Last month, I rented a Leica M6 for a weekend. I’d had a nagging sense that I was missing out on something. I’d never shot with a Leica before, and it had been nearly 14 years since I last shot film. It was fun, changing things up—it’s always exciting, trying something new. But I was so happy to discover that it didn’t change how I see or how I shoot. And in the end, although I like the results, I like my Canon 5D Mark IV even more. Sacrilege? Maybe. But it feels good to love the one you’re with...

Because I am an unwilling slave to authoritarian Big Brother corporations and my mind has been taken over, I can't help thinking of the old Raid bug spray commercials that featured insects happily destroying human property until the can of Raid comes out, at which point they all shriek "RAID!!!" and flee. But what we're talking about here is not that, but computer storage. In the computing world, RAID stands for "Redundant Array of Inferior Disks." It's an umbrella name for several strategies fo...

50 Summer Instagram Captions That Are Too Hot For Your Feed to Handle

I don't know about you, but by the time Summer rolls around, my Instagram goes from dull and dingy to vibrant and bright. There's something, dare I say, Instagrammable about beach days, blue skies, and leafy trees that really changes the look and feel of a feed. However, if you're a true Instagrammer, then you know that engaging your followers doesn't solely rely on a good picture but also a witty caption (and a few comments) to get your post boosted to the top. If you're looking to step up your...

Tourist dies at the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular and widely recognizable tourist attractions in the world, but unfortunately, it can also be quite dangerous. Steep inclines, sharp drops, and precarious trails mean you need to be on high alert, no matter how badly you want to get that Instagram photo. Just yesterday, a Macau man, who was part of a tour group from Hong Kong, fell to his death at Eagle Point near the Skywalk. The Skywalk offers views as far as 4,000 feet into the canyon. The man fell...

Infamous conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was expected to have his Instagram account shut down, or at least have a recently posted photo deleted, after he recently posted an image of an art piece called “False Profits” on his Instagram story.The image depicts six white men with hooked noses playing monopoly on the backs of other humans, surrounded by gold, skulls, money, medicine, and a globe.

Do Ethics Really Make You a Better Leader in Business?

ETHICS IS NOT a word used very often behind the walls of companies and organizations. Many companies have a set of values and company policies. However, very few companies educate leaders about ethics and encourage leaders to discuss ethics with their teams. Ethics are usually an afterthought, taken seriously only after an event that causes a business or team to fall apart. If understood and put into practice by a dedicated leader, ethics have the potential to turn stagnant, declining teams i...

Arri launches the Alexa Mini LF – “Large format” 4.5K cinema camera

While the photography crowd might laugh at Arri’s use of the term “large format” when we’re talking about a sensor only a hair larger than a “full frame” DSLR or mirrorless camera. When it comes to video, though, that is rather large. At 36.7 x 25.54mm, the sensor offers 4.5K (4448 x 3096) resolution and […] The post Arri launches the Alexa Mini LF – “Large format” 4.5K cinema camera appeared first on DIY Photography.

Stone Tests Judge’s Patience With Instagram Post Bashing Schiff

Instagram fanatic Roger Stone published a post of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) head laid over a “bullschiff” meter on Friday.

Yep, There's a Limit to How Many Instagram Stories You Can Post in 1 Day

Who doesn't love a good Instagram Story? Rather than posting one picture, you can literally document your entire day. Plus, you can see who's checking you out (and vice-versa, unfortunately). Like Snapchat, Instagram Stories now come complete with filters, GIFs, stickers, backgrounds, fonts, and more, and are a less permanent way of keeping your followers up to date on your daily activities. While posting a few here and there is great, have you ever gotten annoyed or overwhelmed when someo...

Traveling to Denver for the Month of Photography 2019

  There was a time, years ago, when I wrote travel pieces in the column. I regaled with tales of cities near and far. I also reviewed photography exhibitions, and for years I interviewed photo industry types, transcribed them myself, (yes, it was laborious,) and shared lightly-edited-long-reads with you, our loyal audience. That this column has evolved into mostly book reviews, with a few portfolio review stories sprinkled in is mostly a function of habit, and the fact that I am a much busier pe...
