What Separates Us Smartphone Photographers from the Pros

Given how good smartphone cameras have become, it’s relatively easy to take a good-looking picture (especially coupled with a versatile photo-editing app).  Run of the mill point-and-shoot digital camera are powerful enough to take a very high-quality shot.  So what is it that professional photographers do take to their photos to the next level? Last … Continue reading

Waze: The Only Way to Travel

The power of the average smartphone has grown immensely.  Over the last 5+ years, we’ve watched smartphones replace device after device, as their capabilities have increased.  We no longer carry around MP3 players.  I don’t remember the last time I saw someone walking around with a digital camera.  And when’s the last time you drove … Continue reading

Skittles: Share the Rainbow, Taste the Rainbow

I won’t bore you with a long-winded introduction, but I will say two things… There’s NO WAY Skittles actually produced this commercial.  It has to be a parody. It’s probably definitely NSFW (not safe for work).  But if you choose to watch it in class, or any other quiet, public setting, be prepared to excuse … Continue reading

Do It Yourself: Iron Man Hand Repulsor

Halloween is only four days away!  Some of us are counting down the days until we can finally break out the costume we’ve been putting together for the last few weeks.  The procrastinations are realizing there is just enough time to put something together and still look like there was some actual effort put into … Continue reading

Fallen Heroes

Okay, so this post may not be as serious as the title makes it seem… But it seems like many of my heroes, real or fictitious, have fallen in one way or another.  Batman seemingly retired at the end of The Dark Knight Rises.  Iron Man blew up his collection of suits, and had the arc … Continue reading

Biting Elbows – Bad Motherf*cker

Being someone who’s heavily into cars, mountain biking, and a fan of all things action, I can really appreciate a great shot and video work.  Despite grading my photography and videography knowledge/skills as amateur at best, I thought I’d seen pretty much everything GoPro cameras were capable of, and their creative uses.  However I never though I’d … Continue reading

Watch The Duck

I began this morning the same way I do every morning, by watching ESPN.  Right before a commercial break during my favorite/most hated morning show First Take, an extremely catchy song came on that I had to hear again. Watch The Duck’s “Poppin Off” is like hip-hop meeting dubstep… break dancing while doing the robot… hipsters … Continue reading

Snapseed = Instagram on Steroids

Now that we’ve got cell phones with cameras capable of shooting up to 41-megapixel photos and 1080p HD video, everybody’s a smartphone photographer.  Unless you’ve spent hundreds (or thousands) on a D-SLR camera, many of us don’t see the point of carrying a standalone camera.  However there seems to be a huge gap in the … Continue reading
