Assassins don't work for free! Why should you?

When you watch this video, it all sounds pretty hilarious and bizarre. But people will use very similar phrases to try and persuade you to do a photography gig for free... oops... sorry... for the exposure.

Remember: Working for exposure is paying off in rare cases. But generally, it does you more harm than good.

+Julie Zagorski I think the fact that she said "this is going to look great on your resume" implies that she did not.

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.

Just try to be awesome. It'll make you happier.

I have always admired +Trey Ratcliff for his positive attitude to life. He is one of those people who always sees the positive side of things, even if they are downright awful at first glance. That is the source of great joy, confidence and success in life.

Check out his recent TEDx talk. It's not so much about photography but about life itself. I guarantee you, you will go "yeah, he's right!" more than once.

When you're through watching it, just let it simmer for a minute. Don't rush off into your daily routine. Just let it sink in and ask yourself:

What is your attitude to life? And does it really make you happy?

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?
