No Selfie Sticks Allowed

22 Feb

Have you ever been somewhere and you had to ask a total stranger to take your picture? You have to hand your phone to them and then they have to struggle to find the snap button. Now you don’t have to do that anymore! The art of taking a picture changed last year with the invention of the selfie stick. The selfie stick holds your phone so you can hold it out in front of you and snap a shot.

However recently many museums and other establishments have been banning them because they say the stick is a hazard. The stick can accidentally trip or clothesline guests causing injury. I can see their point because it causes a legal situation for the establishment. What do you think? Should sticks be banned? I think establishments need to adjust to technology and make rules and special areas to embrace the selfie stick. Could users of selfie sticks sign waivers when they enter? I also think users should be aware of their surroundings and be courteous of others too. It’s a two way street and the reality is personal mobile phones aren’t going away and either are selfie sticks. People like to take pictures of themselves.

Here’s some examples:

PicMonkey Steps Up To The Plate

1 Jun

Looking for a free picture editor? You need to check out Pic­Mon­key. The picture editing service shares sim­i­lar features of Pic­nik because the same creators of Picnik are the brains behind PicMonkey. You may remember Picnik was the pop­u­lar photo edit­ing ser­vice that Google purchased and clos­ed down in April.

Pic­Mon­key is bet­ter than ever. It’s faster, more pow­er­ful, and eas­i­er to use than Picnik. The only downside is that the site requires flash so it doesn’t work on an iPad or iPhone.

Lytro: New Camera Technology

26 Dec

The technology of taking a picture hasn’t theoretically changed in over 100 years until now. Lytro has reinvented the camera with the light field capturing method. The site says, “Lytro camera captures the entire light field, which is all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space.” You will never take a bad picture again (unless your eyes are closed). You never have to focus.

A light field is the amount of light traveling in every direction through every point in space. Conventional cameras cannot record the light field. Lytro camera processes the light so you can always have beautiful pictures.

One consumer testing the camera said, “The shots are about timing and the ability to refocus after the picture is taken. I don’t need to worry about adjusting focus, I could focus just on the timing.”
