On article PIX 2015: Brian Ach and getting the right shot (41 comments in total)

People have often spoke about context, but I've never really understood what he meant. Brian in the video said, "The ultimate fantasy shot is the Pope next to a Yellow cab in front of the Brooklyn Bridge". Finally I get it.

Well, I'm looking at the skin colour of that hand and it doesn't look exactly right, rather pallid and dead. I think the artists need to work on it a little more, else we'll be getting a flood of zombie jokes.

I saw this picture many years ago, and the question I have always wanted answered was, who was the man that fell? Everyone knows the picture and the photographer, but I doubt anyone knows/remembers the man. That is something I find incredibly saddening.

On article Is Instagram 'debasing photography'? (291 comments in total)

I don`t like Instagram, most of the colours in the photos seem very unrealistic to me. But then again, that is just what I like and obviously a whole pile of other people think differently to me (plus I`m definitely no pro).

Having said that, I do have an Instagram account to help advertise my blog, and from that angle it seems useful for me.

But with this article, it just seems to be another case of ... if it isn`t what I had when I was younger, it can`t be as good syndrome. How many arguments have we seen over the years, cricket, tennis, baseball legends etc. The older players are often thought to be better by older people. Just my opinion :)
