The Proper Attitude Toward Tech (Frank's Lesson)

Michael Kenna, Stone Pine Tunnel, Pento, Abruzzo, Italy, 2016,silver gelatin print, 8 × 7 inches I learned this from Frank DiPerna, one of my teachers at the Corcoran. I must have been having difficulty with something one day, and with a wave of his hand and in a dismissive tone of voice he said, "Just master it. Just learn whatever you need to know to do your work. Don't worry about anything else. Just master what you need." Or maybe he said, "...don't worry about the rest of that crap." (I'm...

All Synced Photographs

This special collection located in the Catalog panel of Lightroom Classic is very useful for helping us view and manage the photos synced with the cloud-based Lightroom ecosystem, but it can also be an opportunity for self-inflicted injury. Every photo that is synced with the cloud-based Lightroom, whether the photo originated in Lightroom Classic via a synced collection or originated in one of the cloud-based Lightroom apps, will show up in All Synced Photographs. Note, if you impo...

Coachella 2019: How the festival survived and thrived to reach its 20th year

As the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival marks its 20th anniversary this weekend, it’s easy to forget what a rare and unexpected surprise the very first fest was in 1999. First of all, most of you weren’t there – only 20,000 or so fans “filled” the Empire Polo Field to hear artists such as the Chemical Brothers and Beck, Rage Against the Machine and Tool. Second, those few who were there had never seen anything like it. Crisp green grass instead of asphalt or dirt. Reasonable prices at the ...

Kodak Black (Sort of) Apologizes to Lauren London: “I’m Sorry if I Disrespected You, But I Didn’t”

Kodak Black doesn’t feel like he disrespected Lauren London by saying he would give her a year of “crying and sh*t” over her boyfriend Nipsey Hussle’s murder before hollering at her, but he’s apologizing anyway.Over the weekend, Kodak made a series of insensitive comments about London grieving Hussle on his Instagram Live.“Lauren London that baby, though. She about to be out here single,” Kodak said. “She’s finna be a whole widow out here. I’ll be the best man I can be for her. I’ll give her a w...

30 Instagram-Worthy Hairstyles To Try In April

Remember way back in January, when your optimism was at an all-time high. You were actually excited about going to the gym. You were downloading meditation apps and making a list of all the books you wanted to read. And when you were scrolling through Instagram and saw a hairstyle you loved, the reaction was, "I can totally do this."Yeah, that new year feeling is completely gone.We blame alarm clocks — oh, and breezy weather, which makes us just want to put on a hat.

No Best Time for Women Entrepreneurs to Start a Business, Infographic Shows

Don’t worry about the best age for you as a woman to start a business? Because the infographic from Missy Empire proves age has nothing to do with it. The willingness to go for it seems more important.  Women entrepreneurs can succeed whether they are in their teens or older. The “Top 30 Female Entrepreneurs” infographic below lists women who have succeeded in their respective fields. Sure, fashion and cosmetics make up 63% of the fields on the list. But the remaining 37% come from different in...

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...

I deleted all the apps off my phone for a week — and it was harder than I could have imagined

I deleted all the apps off my phone for a week to see how it would affect my productivity and attention span. Surviving a week without apps was much more difficult than I expected, and the app that I missed the most was not the one I expected. But by the end of the week, I had become less distracted and more productive. I ended up redownloading my apps at the end of the experiment — but not all of them. For the past week, I lived with no apps on my phone. I launched this experime...

14 Adorably Awkward Celebrities At Prom

Week 16: Our first taste of Utah BLOWS our mind

BeaUTAHful. Bring out every superlative on the planet and you still won’t do this state justice. It’s why we’ve chosen to spend at least 5 weeks in Utah!

This Week in Photography Books: Ingvar Kenne

  I’m going back to Jersey next month. (It’s been a while.) My cousin’s daughter is having a Bat Mitzvah in early April, and if I told you it took me two months to plan my trip, you’ll have to trust that I mean it. The amount of phone calls, texts, internet searches, Orbitz fuckovers, and general stress that went into it were enough to give me an ulcer. Well, that’s not true. I don’t have an ulcer. I don’t even really know what that means. It just sounded good. You could imagine me shaking my fi...

Followups and Updates: The Eloquence of Coincidence (OT)

• Yesterday's post made me realize that I am not giving my current food experiment a decent chance. I am cheating too much, so I don't get to find out if the WFPB plan actually makes you feel better. Thanks to John Gillooly for asking the question. I really need to redouble my commitment so that I get good data on it, with my statistically insignificant but personally very significant experimental sample of one. One commenter said he eats nothing but meat and has never felt better. I should poin...

Skied at Winter Park on March 15, 2019

I was lucky enough to have a mid-day visit on Friday to Winter Park after a huge storm on Wednesday. It was a beautiful sunny day and around 1:00 PM I pulled into Winter Park’s free parking lot and was able to find an open parking spot. After walking past the Moffat Tunnel I was greeted by zero crowds and zero lines. My luck had just begun. View of Vasquez at Winter Park from the lift I made my way up the gondola and wandered towards the Vasquez territory. I enjoy the bumps and ...

Index Prints

[...This follows on the previous post. —Ed.]   Here's a simple way to make sense of a sprawling, less-than-perfectly organized ongoing archive of photographs of the sort most of us have—and eventually help preserve your pictures at the same time. First, buy three boxes. You might need more than one set, but this will get the point across. You really don't need anything fancier than this archival drop-front metal-edge box. But if you want to spend more, naturally you can. Then, whenever you get ...

Let’s Talk About the Self-Made Billionaire Kylie Jenner

Last week Forbes published what has become its second annual clickbait attempt. It was clearly success and I’m upset with myself for continuing to give them attention, even if it’s negative attention. Trust me though, there’s a good reason I’m writing about this. Of course, I’m talking about how Forbes is labeling Kylie Jenner as the youngest self-made billionaire. I think most people look at “self-made billionaire” and laugh for reasons that I hope are obvious. Her sister, Kim Kardashian, a...

Print to Save

Don't press like. Don't press save. Press print. Print to save. Someone named Missy Mwac is being discussed recently (although, as a recovering alcoholic and a confessed WFPB fanatic, I can't see how someone who eats bacon and loves vodka could be your guide to anything, much less the murky waters. That's murky living if you ask me). But I digress, as I do. Suffice it to say that I love her recent article "The Lesson from Costco's Photo Lab," discovered via reader robert e via PetaPixel.

The Beauty of Physical Prints

...Or, why I chose the Ctein prints I chose for the current print sale. Printmaking—a word that encompasses making photographic prints, and the prints themselves—has always been an exceedingly important part of my enjoyment of photography. I'm both a part of the audience and a maker. I like objects. I like pictures of all sorts. But I especially enjoy well-made photographic prints. Having done it professionally for a spell in the '80s and '90s, I'm aware of some of the problems and pitfalls. Wit...

18 Amazing Things to do in Tucson, Arizona with kids or without!

Tucson, Arizona is a big little city. Although it’s spread out with over 1 million people, it still has that feel of a small town with a laid-back atmosphere.

But it’s stunning natural landscapes, foodie scene, and arts and culture attracts travelers from all walks of life, even families like us! Tucson AZ is famous for its dramatic bea...

Solo Female Travel in Paris — Is it Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel alone to Paris? Absolutely. Under most circumstances, with the right preparation and precautions, visiting Paris can be as safe as staying in your hometown. Paris is a place where I’ve been traveling alone for years! I first fell in love with Paris when I was 16 years old and on a school trip, and I’ve returned more than a dozen times since, often solo. It’s a city that I love dearly, a city where I frequently play tour guide for my friends and family. However, ...

How to contact Facebook for problems with your account and other issues

Contacting Facebook directly can be difficult, as the company does not accept phone calls for customer support. There are a number of email addresses to which you can send questions or issues, but the responses can be slow and aren't assured, either.
