German Society nature photo winner

Wildlife photography is an arresting art. A perfectly captured image has the power to make us stop in our tracks, take a step back, and simply say, “Wow.” Often that bewilderment is followed by a sobering realization. “I could never do that,” so many of us have thought while admiring a professional portrait of a big cat stalking in the savannah. “I can hardly even get a decent shot of my housecat.” The more confident among us, on the other hand, may feel the opposite. “I could totally do that...

Tekashi 6ix9ine Pushes Wild Ariana Grande-Justin Bieber Conspiracy Theory. And She Is Not Pleased.

Monday afternoon, America’s most manic snitch sat down in a stairwell at his new undisclosed address to upload an Instagram video about the music industry’s supposed latest mega-scam. “So listen, I want the world to know that Billboard is a lie,” said Tekashi 6ix9ine, or Daniel Hernandez, who was recently released from federal custody, where he was serving out a sentence for nine charges including conspiracy to murder and armed robbery. “You can buy No. 1s on Billboard.

Making Art On Instagram During A Shutdown

The Strip may be closed, but Las Vegas is so much more than gambling – or at least that’s what its chroniclers show. “In the absence of take-my-hand influencers, creative control of Instagram is free to return to the first group who adopted it: artists and photographers. If you give an artist a tool like Instagram and a bunch of idle hours, he or she will find a way to build a project.” – Las Vegas Weekly

Giphy ruined GIFs, and Facebook ruined the internet. They're perfect for each other.

Facebook's purchase of Giphy makes perfect sense: both companies want to serve as many people as possible, without any coherent point of view or aesthetic. GIFs were once a vital and unique artform, but Giphy indexed them and made the same GIFs appear again and again — with boring and predictable consequences. Facebook did much the same for the wider web, stultfying internet culture. This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author. Visit Business Insider's homepage fo...

Ad spending on influencer marketing has fallen 22% in the first half of 2020, according to a new survey of marketers conducted by the World Federation of Advertisers. A drop in sponsored-post opportunities has forced many influencers to lean into alternative revenue streams, like merchandise, direct-to-consumer products, affiliate marketing, and content-production deals.  While advertising investment has fallen across the board, many brands are still running paid "response campaigns" to addres...
