The ten-second reminder for successfully retouching photos of people

Recently, while I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, I stumbled upon this sentence about people’s appearance: “If they can’t fix it in 10 seconds, don’t point it out.” It’s a very clever thought, and I immediately connected it with the retouching process and the rules for retouching people. Based on this quote, I came […] The post The ten-second reminder for successfully retouching photos of people appeared first on DIY Photography.

Colour in Cinema: Daredevil

I’m not a fan of western superhero franchises.

These photos of bees sleeping in flowers will melt your heart

Well, I gotta admit that’s something else, and it’s as cute as it sounds. Photographer Joe Neely recently captured two bees sleeping in a flower, […] The post These photos of bees sleeping in flowers will melt your heart appeared first on DIY Photography.

Why can’t we celebrate an image without snark?

I’ve read The Onion headlines and McSweeney’s pieces that have knocked me off my chair. I can still remember staying up late during high school to watch Saturday Night Live sketches like “Change Bank,” or Dave Chapelle’s Killing Me Softly on HBO.
