Flickr introduces auto-tagging and fails miserably

What happens if you are trying to auto-tag millions of photos? Right, it fails and you're in big trouble. Flickr has introduced a new auto-tagging feature which assigns labels to photos automatically, without manual intervention.

Sometimes the level of stupidity of what are supposed to be industry leaders amazes me. Auto-tagging has never worked, and it will never work. It will assign hugely inappropriate and massively offensive tags in many cases which inevitably results in a immense backlash. And that's exactly what they got!

Flickr, please hire people who understand their job!
A beta version of Flickr's auto-tagging function is making some uncomfortable mistakes

Flag design and what you can learn from it for your photography

This TED talk has nothing to do with photography, at least at first glance. But it has everything to do with design. I think that creating great images is all about design. It's about taking what you see in a scene and arranging it (by changing your angle, distance and framing) to make it look great. You design your images!

You will learn a few things from this talk for your your photography design work.

The best way to learn photography? The Arcanum demystified
► Read more at [ frb.li/nxfgv ]

In this post, I will demystify the Arcanum for you. We will look behind the romantic cover of the "never-ending circle of love" as Trey Ratcliff likes to put it. And we will get to the bottom of the educational concepts and practices. If you are a fantasy junkie (unlike me) you may just skip this article and be perfectly happy to dive right into the experience. But if you need firm facts to back up your decision for spending your money on this form of education, continue reading. I will translate the concepts into our world and show you how and why they work.

+Klaus Herrmann I too find the mystical stuff entertaining but worry that it clouds what we are really doing. It is fun but the real message which I think you really deliver well is that The Arcanum experience is top-notch personal photographic education without geographic barriers or the constraints of a traditional classroom.

Thanks again.

The DSL-ARM - Yet another frightening consequence of DSLR use

Are you suffering from this syndrome??? Don't despair! Apparently, getting a Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II will help. Actually, it's the only cure right now... says Olympus. ;)

OMG! Is the selfie in danger?

Here's a worrisome quote from the video below: "Selfie sticks create the illusion that other objects, places and even people exist."

That's how far we've come already, folks! ;)

Are you a victim of selfie stick abuse?

How to relight an image in Lightroom
► Read more at [ frb.li/12t7a ]

Sometimes when you post-process an image, you may notice that some more interesting lighting would have really improved the scene and made the photo more interesting. But, of course, now its too late as the photo has already been taken. Is it really? As I will show you in this video tutorial, there are some simple techniques that let you add lighting effects in Lightroom. We will be using the local adjustment tools to create splashes of light that look as if they where actually part of the scene when you created the original photograph.
In this video tutorial, I will show you some simple techniques for adding realistic lighting effects in Lightroom.

Ingenious: Embracing smartphone photography for promotion

Most restaurant owners cringe at the sight of hipsters running improvised food photography sessions with their smartphones. Some even banned the use of smartphone cameras.

Here is a brilliant example that you can also make this trend work for you. If you cannot stop it, embrace it!
