How Much Blur Is Enough? How To Achieve Bokeh In Your Photographs

Bokeh was definitely one of those techniques that intrigued me when I knew nothing about photography. Bokeh is a term that comes from the Japanese word boke meaning blur and is used to refer to a certain amount of aesthetically pleasing blurriness that happens in “in the background” of your photographs.  Matheus Bertelli Blur doesn't always happen in the background of your photographs. The best way I can explain this phenomenon to my students is by doing a simple exercise that only requires...

130,000 Photographs by Andy Warhol Are Now Available Online, Courtesy of Stanford University

(Image credit: © The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc.) It’s taken for granted that every brand or rising star must establish and maintain a constant presence on various social networks. Indeed, the social media star—an entity famous solely for collecting followers and posting glamorous photos with themed commentary—may seem like a phenomenon that could only exist in the internet age, though writers like J.G. Ballard saw such things coming decades ago. But before obsessive photog...

16 views to inspire travel

P aris, London, Barcelona, San Francisco — most of us are familiar with what these cities and their most famous monuments “look like.” In fact, with the internet nearly fused to our fingertips, it’s tempting to assume we know all the world’s places and panoramas. But what does Earth look like from the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town? From the bright-as-day nighttime streets of Tokyo? From a patch of grass near a herd of zebras outside of Nairobi? There’s always more of the world to explore,...

So You Want To Start A Side Hustle? Here's Everything You Need To Know

Watch the England players react to their superb 3-2 win over Spain (video)

Spain 2 – England 3 – The Three Lions’ best result in 17 years! What a game! What a performance from Gareth Southgate’s side! Reaching the World Cup semi-finals this past summer was rightly lauded but a familiar argument was put up throughout and after the tournament in Russia, with regards to England. The naysayers said England didn’t beat anyone of note and that they got lucky with how the draw panned out. Well, on Monday night in the Nations League England only went and won 3-2 against Spain...

What Netflix Cannot Give — and Death Cannot Take

Joy is dangerous. Flannery O’Connor understood this. A southern Catholic novelist, O’Connor earned renown as one of the most compelling American storytellers of the 20th century. Her fiction sweats with realism and the striving for meaning and joy. O’Connor, like her contemporaries Dorothy Sayers, Graham Greene, and C.S. Lewis, criticized the militant secularism of the 20th century and spoke life into literary culture’s slough of despond. In a famous letter to her friend Betty Hester...
