Open Mike: So You Say You Like Everything

Facebook hits 2.5B users in Q4 but shares sink from slow profits

Facebook beat Wall Street estimates in Q4 but slowing profit growth beat up the share price. Facebook reached 2.5 billion monthly users, up 2%, from 2.45 billion in Q3 2019 when it grew 1.65%, and it now has 1.66 billion daily active users, up 2.4% from 1.62 billion last quarter when it grew 2%.

To Improve Memory Recall, Curate Your Photos

When I take a photo these days, I don’t think much about it. I know it will be automatically saved to the cloud; I know it will have a timestamp automatically saved with it. It’s not like the old days when the point of taking a photo was to get it printed and then slip the prints into sleeves in albums. Read more...

Author Tour for Controversial Novel ‘American Dirt’ Canceled Citing Safety Concerns

(NEW YORK) — The publisher of Jeanine Cummins’ controversial novel “American Dirt” has cancelled the remainder of her promotional tour, citing concerns for her safety.

a quick coaching check-in

Toward the end of last year, I was in an introspective mood (who wasn’t?), and I doodled a bunch of words and phrases that I wanted my work to encompass for the new year (or the new decade, really). After I was done, I honestly didn’t think about it much, but this morning I was thumbing through my journal looking for something else, and found them. ...

This is why location scouting is so important for destination and event photographers

I’m lucky with my photography. It’s almost all on location, but I mostly get to choose the location myself. They’re places I’m familiar with, that I’ve scouted regularly for several years. So I know what to expect when I show up, where the light’s going to fall at different times of day or year.

On presets: photographic style cannot be “canned”

Conversations around photographic style have always felt a little odd to me for a few reasons. It’s something I get asked about a lot by my students, as they feel that without a style, a visual signature, then they will fid it very difficult to differentiate themselves from other working artists. So much of today’s communication is […] The post On presets: photographic style cannot be “canned” appeared first on DIY Photography.

Responsive Leadership: Needed Now More Than Ever

THE leadership question is top of mind for many people here in the United States and throughout the world. The idea that leaders are trustworthy, honest, and can be relied on to operate in the best interest of the public, the employee, the student, the parishioner, or even the shareholder has been shattered. No matter what industry or organizational structure—business, politics, nonprofit, religious, entertainment or sports—examples abound where leaders have violated their trusted role and expe...

How technical do you have to be to take a good photo?

I have a confession to make. I often shoot in aperture priority mode. I’m a reasonably competent photographer with a solid grasp of the factors that drive exposure, but I don’t want to fiddle with multiple dials when I just want to take a photo. There are, of course, exceptions. I shoot manually when using strobes […] The post How technical do you have to be to take a good photo? appeared first on DIY Photography.

How much money brands will pay for a TikTok sponsored video compared to YouTube, according to an influencer agency

TikTok is a big focus area for influencer marketers who are looking for new opportunities to reach its coveted audience of Gen-Z users. Influencers and brands are still negotiating on the right pricing structure for sponsored content on the app.  TalentX Entertainment, a new TikTok talent management company, said it charges a lower cost-per-view to brands on TikTok than on YouTube because it's much easier to scale on TikTok.
