Why I’m Not Going to Use the New Instagram Crop Feature

Why I’m Not Going to Use the New Instagram Crop Feature

The day has finally come in which we are no longer bound to the square crop within Instagram. The ability to post horizontal and vertical images has been requested by users since the beginning of the app. In the past, you would have to open your image in another app, add borders, and then export the new image to Instagram.

New York-Based Photographer Revolutionizes Dick Pics with High Fashion Photo Shoot

New York-Based Photographer Revolutionizes Dick Pics with High Fashion Photo Shoot

First I have to say this video contains what some will consider very graphic images and language. So if you don’t subscribe to the "laugh a little, lighten up” theory of life, like comedic photographer Soraya Doolbaz and I do, then please don’t torture yourself (or us) and just avoid this post. That being said, Soraya's lighthearted project Dicture Gallery is exactly what it sounds like.

Lighting on a Budget - 1 Speedlight

Lighting on a Budget - 1 Speedlight
If there’s anything that you’ll quickly learn about me, it’s that I love simplicity, both professionally and personally. It’s the only way that I keep my sanity between trying to balance producing shoots, contacting clients, editing, teaching, writing and riding my motorcycle. Now, to be extremely clear, it wasn’t always that way. Like a lot of beginning photographers, I insisted on complicating things for myself.
