Is a Tagged Instagram Photo More Than Just a Photo?

PBS’ Idea Channel poses an interesting question, “Is a tagged Instagram more than just a photo?”

Use Your Tripod to Create Video That Looks Like You Used a Slider

Now that many of us are shooting with DSLR cameras that handle both photo and video we often find ourselves doing a bit of both.

I love creative videos that are just plain fun to watch. In this video, one Photoshop “magician” uses hidden cameras and a specially rigged advertising board at a bus stop to entertain bus patrons with retouched images of themselves, done in real-time.
