Why and how to meter with a mirrorless digital camera


Hi guys, so i was just taking photos of this beautiful scene here. that’s Mt Hood And i thought that it would be a good moment to show you really quick how i meter for my photos, the photos i take With the film camera of course and why i do it the way i do it So the first thing that i used to meter my photos was a smartphone app I think there are a ton of them and all of them are pretty good and they are accurate enough the problem for me and that’s why i stopped using them is that they don’t give you too much flexibility and Also to be honest i don’t like to be messing with my phone while taking photos with the film camera, it kind of ruins the experience I don’t know if it makes any sense So then i bought a standalone old minolta light meter that i think i showed here before I used that thing for two days it’s not that i didn’t like it it’s not that it was not accurate but it was just not for me you see? i carry a lot of equipment with me: the bronica is a heavy camera and the lenses just make it worse and then I have the tripod, filters, film… and then I have this camera the 6500 that is the one i use to record these videos, so it’s yet another thing to carry with me so it didn’t work for me took me a while but i finally realized that i had been carrying with me the perfect light meter all this time, and it was the digital camera and i want to show you why okay excuse the squirrel I’m gonna use my old a6000 to show you how I meter. i of course usually use the 6500 but i’m using it to record this video right now so yeah One reason why i like to use the a 6500 is because it has a switch here on this wheel to switch between custom modes, and i use it to have a custom mode for video and another custom mode for photo so this is what the custom photo mode would look like in my 6500 i always have the iso set to 800 that’s the Speed that i shoot hp5 at but of course i’ll change it if i’m if i’m shooting a different film or different… if i’m pushing it or something and What i do is i just point the camera to a subject like these trees and i just copy or carry these settings that the camera is telling me 1/640 and f11 to my film camera but getting these settings, the shutter speed and the aperture is something that you can do with With your phone is pretty accurate at doing it but the camera has some key advantages The first of them i don’t know if you can see the screen but it’s previewing the image in black and white and i shoot black-and-white, so i can actually see Kind of what the photo is going to look like another reason is because not only we can preview the phone in black and white but we can preview the actual exposure meaning, just imagine that we want to blacken the trees with no details in the trees So we could use this exposure compensation dial and just turn it down all the way to say three stops And we will get a preview of what the look the photo would look like. not that we want to do that We could do the opposite though if we want to blow out the sky and we want to have a lot of details in the trees and just look the How many steps we have to compensate the exposure to have that and that translates in in new settings That we can carry to our film camera again and the last reason is this one it’s all about previewing the photo again now just imagine, this is our image that’s image we’re gonna take We have a shutter speed of one – one thousandth of a second, and the iso that we want But, we want to have more contrast, we want to darken the sky so we could just place the filter here in front of our lens and we will get once again a preview of the photo as you can see the sky is darker now and the most important thing of all is like we get new settings: we have a high speed of 1/400 of a second now that we can carry and copy to our film camera You see how it changes? 1/1000 1/400 Not only we get the settings but we get the preview the effect that the filter is gonna have in our photo And yeah that’s about it that’s the method i use to meter. it works perfectly fine, my photos are correctly exposed all the time using this cameras light meter of course i did some testing at first i copied the exact settings the camera was telling me and i took three shots one With the actual settings, one under exposed by one stop and one overexposed by one stop And then i checked which which one was the best one. it was actually the one with the actual settings, so i trust this camera Alright just one last thing i wanted to add to all this and it’s while i use the settings from the camera 90% of the time sometimes i overexpose the photo a little bit. for example if the camera is telling me f8, I’ll use f7.1 or even f5.6 depending on the situation because digital cameras have a really hard time with highlights film is the opposite, films struggles with the shadows for example if you take a raw file from your digital camera and you open that raw file with lightroom and you move the slider, the shadow’s slider all the way to the right you are able to recover a lot of detail, it’s not gonna look awesome but the detail is there. i’ve tried with raw files where i thought it was completely black and lost the shadows forever and lightroom was able to recover a lot of detail, crazy detail from the shadows but that doesn’t happen with the highlights so if you blow out the highlights they are gonna be white Forever and ever that’s why the digital camera is gonna try to be safe, it’s gonna try to expose for the highlights you don’t need to do that with film. actually the opposite you should be exposing for the shadows if that’s what you want, you might wan, to darken the shadows or you might not want to have details at all the shadows, but if you want to have details on both shadows and highlights you should expose more for the shadows with film, so either you modify the settings in the camera too to do that to expose for the shadows or you just trust the camera and overexpose a little bit. it works perfectly fine for me that way so yeah, and that’s about it thanks for watching and see you the next one but sometimes though if in really bright on the frame like the sky the sun or something i know So yeah i do this

HOW KISSING PUT ME IN THE HOSPITAL (pictures)


I am probably the only youtuber who can leave YouTube for such a long period of time and still come back and have SH*T eyebrows All that it’s busy. Ah, yes. I’ve been away three weeks and now I drink sparkling water exclusively I’ve become boujee in the time I’ve been away. I also apparently forgot how to wash my hair. So There’s that. I’m making a YouTube video because I ran out of money and so I needed some assistance say Ads. why can’t you just be cute? So I’m just sitting on my floor because I’m going through a bunch of like my clothes and stuff I’m just kind of like trying to clear out Things that don’t fit kind of like old shoes that I don’t really want anymore You know gotta get get the selling going gonna make some money somehow because I can’t work this summer. So and That leave me on to the tea Okay so my friend Josh is currently in South Korea and he was originally in Vietnam and then he was like shall I? and then I Said do it and then he actually did it. So I may end up going to South Korea by the end of the week So ads I’m gonna go through my clothes and we’re gonna have a little catch-up as to what’s been going on. Hi. I’ve had a really rough Past few weeks. I unfortunately, sat my exams and During my exams. I started to get incredibly unwell like to the point where I don’t really clear what was going hot on like I would I would sit in my exams and like It just wouldn’t make sense. It was like I was trying to sit an exam in Spanish and No me gusta towards the start of the exam period I was like I know this this is my stuff I’m gonna nail that literally from my first exam like a couple of days before I started feeling really like tired Korea understand was gonna I thought I’ve ever worked myself you know before the exams are even started and I literally just thought what it was is that it was just a combination of like stress and exhaustion and I just basically been Burning the midnight oil not like eating good enough foods. Just kind of eating junk food like snacks and just not taking care of myself Yes, so my first exam went terribly and as you probably were aware if you follow me on Instagram Plug, haha. I cried like for the rest of the day I was devastated I was excited to sit that exam because it was my jam It was 40% of my history grade and I felt like I couldn’t even understand What was what I just wasn’t with it and I was like, okay fine Obviously, maybe it’s just because first exam it’s just stress. It’s pure stress because first a level you’ve sat, you know You just got overwhelmed, but there was still this like feeling of total exhaustion Like I was just like I’d run a marathon and then had to run another one And then had to sit an exam and I’m and I’m if you’ve seen me run, I’m not a runner. I Look like a baby the baby duck Trying to so The exams continued and the stealing just got worse and worse and I ended up in this situation where I would like Sleep all day and I’d have an exam the next day, but I couldn’t Physically get out at bat and my neck started hurting and my my bones started hurting like I had weights attached to my muscles and every time I tried to move it would be like It was it was awful it was agony I was in a lot of pain But obviously I had to like sort myself out because I still had exams to sit like these exams really important and like I can’t do the course I want to do if I Don’t get the grades and I was so consciously aware of that Like if I mess this up like that, is it so silly? Keep going keep her in through keeping your exams bla bla. And I finally just like it got to the point I just couldn’t I couldn’t understand any more from my second-to-last exam in my last exam I had like four days and I was like, oh my god I have four days just a straight revise this one exam and then obviously because I start feeling unwell by the time I had that four days I literally slept that was it I Couldn’t I couldn’t revise I physically could not have the energy and And and the strength to get out of my bed of advice I couldn’t move I couldn’t think I fell I just I can’t even explain it to you you don’t even feel it yourself, and I just couldn’t understand and so I went into my final exam and was like Final kick of like cortisol, which is optical stress I mean like the cortisol kept me going and then the adrenalin kept me going a super sad man came at me, man Got home And then it hit me. I’m like, I thought I had been ill and the minute I finished that exam It went like 20,000 times worse. I was I felt like I was suffocating It obviously all the adrenaline stuff had worn off and my body had just given up entirely and it was like it was holding itself out like that level of ill was my body trying to hold itself out and like the Minute the exams finished it was disgusting telling my mom. I was like something is not right I don’t feel right it she was like you’re talking yourself into where you’re you’re a hypochondriac, you know, there’s nothing wrong with you You’re falling bare mind my mum. I broke my arm once snapped it clean in half here. There was no bone here Nothing. It was just skin at my arm and could go like that, right? nothing that she tried to take me to the doctors the local doctors because she was like It’s falling it was snapped in half. I had two pins stuck in my arm to hold my bone together two pins Yeah, so literally I finished my exams and was like, okay fine. I’m gonna try and get myself out of this rut I’d really don’t feel right, but I want to post YouTube video so then I posted in my kpop react video with my mum and I really did not for a while and you could tell and like I said all my glands have swollen like in my neck and I felt so disgusting the elder in that video and I told mum I was like This is weird right the fact that my clams have swollen because I’ve never had my glands swell up before and she was like, oh You’re just you’ve eaten too much She basically tried to tell me that the reason that this was all really swollen and it’s still a little tiny bit swollen now Under here like oh my glands is because I basically had just been sat on my ass during exams. And eaten. That was it She tried to tell me the reason that this all You know Was because I was getting a bit Kirby She tried to tell me I’d grown a double chin in in a week Thanks, Shane and So mum still didn’t leave me at this point that something was wrong with me that I fell ill she thought I was just lazy and and Kirby just and then the next morning after I filmed that video I woke up and my eyes had swollen and they were like It was like this but like thick so they were like out here But with like this much visibility and I said to my mum like I was like, this is not right look at me It’s just like Oh mm. Hmm. Yeah. It’s a little bit wrong with you Turn me to the doctors and bear in mind I could barely walk at this point because I literally couldn’t get outta bed Like my mum had she freaking a cyst carrying me to the doctors. I couldn’t add with sunglasses because the light was so bad I was burning a fever and the guy like turns around. He’s like, yeah, you have mono I was like What? What um, yeah turns out I had the epstein-barr virus Which is mononucleosis, otherwise known as glandular fever And glandular fever for those of you don’t know is a nasty mother and you know, one of the main symptoms is chronic fatigue So basically I am I’ve been suffering from this virus for the whole period of my exams I bear my glandular fever For those of you who don’t know. Let me just Let me just spill the tea on grounds of the fever a little minute. It’s infectious mononucleosis Otherwise known as glandular fever is caused by the epstein-barr virus. Do you want to just hear some of the side effects So the disease often results in fever sore throat enlarged new clothes in the neck and extreme tiredness most people get better within 2 to 4 weeks, but the feeling of fatigue lasts for months The liver and spleen may also become swollen and in some cases may called splenic rupture Yes, yeah the classic rupture your spleen Classic glandular fever is is a sense like its is its You burn a fever You you have no energy like to the point where you cannot move Everything hurts you’re in agony if there’s any body’s on fire, but weighed down in this in an ocean of pain And then your your neck swells you get swollen glands like in your armpits as well Some people get swollen glands like in their crotch area. I didn’t in case you wanted to know crotch was fine. Um, Probably TMI there but you know, you’ve you’ve probably been missing me. So I gotta fill you in on the intimate details um and Obviously swollen eyes, which is really rare Apparently only like one in five people who had planned to the feedback get like the swollen eyes, and that’s like the final symptom I also had like extreme pain under like my left rib Which is where my spleen is if you are guessing where this is going not my spleen didn’t rupture But it was a little bit swollen mmm, you got had a blood test and it came back and it was like You sickest and the doctor said like how long have you been like this? and I said well I’ve been like this around three weeks now because I had my exams and I was sick during my exams and he was like You should start getting better and I was like, well this I sent him only came on yesterday Does this look like I’m improving to you and he was like, ah, no it doesn’t um So banter the doctor was like oh this looks like a very severe strain So not only did he go getting mono She got severe mono this done by half’s here on Albert’s Channel. You come to my channel expect to go hard That’s all I’m saying. Where am I going? Where would I be going where I would wear this bin bag convention. Come on girl It wasn’t great. And so he sent me home and he was like, there’s literally nothing we can do You have to just wait fever out. I kind of just had to like take painkillers and I hope they passed Not two days later Guess what happened? You girl ended up with a really really really sore throat so like I know just Shazzer as she’s been a reliable source for help during this whole This whole sitch and I said showers look I can’t talk and it was like this My neck was thrown about like this I Couldn’t talk and your voice kind of goes on this. Oh Oh you can’t read about That and it’s called hot potato mouth or hot potato voice And basically what happens is you can’t talk and I was like, this is not funny I’m in agony like actual agony swallowing hurts drinking hurts. I literally love struggling to eat I was like, this is agony. And I told my mom and she was like You’ve been a pussy And then I started not being able to swallow like medicine anymore no way And she was like, hey you’re busy it wasn’t until the third day of this agony that I turned to her I was like, please look at my mouth. There was something wrong in my mouth. I couldn’t talk anymore I couldn’t swallow my own saliva. I couldn’t eat I couldn’t drink so I was getting really dehydrated I was in agony and like Behrend I still had two glandular fever on top of this So I was like dying. I had no energy. I was like crippled And of course she was like Oh, Fine. So what happens is she gets out her phone She gets a little no flashlight on thank you so much Oh open up. Let me Evan. Let me have a look How about let me have a look. Oh Oh I kid you not this woman looked inside my mouth and I thought have sold I’d like her face went from this To this I I’m debating whether or not to put photos in of what my mouth looked like because I showed Meg and she gagged so maybe not essentially what happened is because you girl hadn’t gone to the doctor’s during her exams because she was trying so so Freaking hard to get through her exams to be able to sit them because I knew that if I went to the doctor is they would have been like you can’t do anything else and I needed to Sit these exams that needed to do well which in retrospect was a really bad idea Because I didn’t do that. Well, I’m assuming yes You know people who have glandular fever often take like a month off of work to lie in bed because they’re so unwell Not sit exams You know Manos no joke, so I was like, okay What’s up, Chazz? My tonsils were not pretty and Yeah, it was disgusting I’ll do a poll on Instagram now. I think I’m gonna ask you guys if you want to see my mouth or not and Depending on what you vote That will that will be the decider So then after she saw my tongue so she was like Oh damn, and I was in agony and I was trying to cry but I couldn’t cry because I’m so dehydrated so we then had to ring up one one one and On and get the out of hours doctor’s number So then when we got out of our sources, they were like, okay go to the out-of-hours GP She gave me some liquid antibiotics to take That should that should help the the Mouth situation so she gives me these antibiotics and she’s like okay away you go now child’s be free. You’ll be fine two days. Later Yes, who isn’t fine Elbert because you know The antibiotics didn’t work at all and didn’t help anything and the tonsils got worse and then I couldn’t breathe Banta Hilarious. I was choking on my own saliva So what essentially happened was the tonsillitis had got so severe that it was passed basic antibiotics and basic antibiotic dosage the antibiotics that she gave me did nothing to help me at all and So it just got worse and worse and worse to the point where like I couldn’t swallow anything I couldn’t swallow my own saliva and because of the glandular fever and because of everything else going on all of this was sweat like Swollen all the glands in my nose and my mouth and everything so I couldn’t breathe out my nose Which meant that I would felt like I was breathing through a straw constantly and I breathe like this It was disgusting so that my mum was like, okay, I’m kind of a little bit freaked out, you know albats over there Making it making a lot of noise as she she chokes on her own spit so she had to ring one one one again and they were like, um This doesn’t sound good so can you take her to Annie and my mum was like oh and a peak So we then go to the hospital So usually new to Annie you wait, like four hours I rocked up to Annie because I couldn’t talk because I couldn’t speak cuz I couldn’t breathe because I couldn’t swallow by this point I’m so dehydrated. My lips were falling apart They were like, okay, so I walked him to any like within two minutes they were like you know, so they get this woman to come in and like have a look at me and she looks at me and she’s like so then she calls ent which is ear nose and throat specialists and they’re like We don’t continue now and then the time it took for them to get an ENT doctor I literally who was blacking out cuz the pain Michie I think I’m set on this chair just blacked out and then like me put me on a ward like straightaway I woke up and they kept like drifting in that consciousness and they were like, okay Finally the ear nose and throat specialist came and she liked her Look at me was like this is really not good First thing we need to do is get like steroids in you to try and calm it down So then we can try and treat it So she rocks up with the cannula and she puts in a cannula on my arm because I can’t swallow And gets the fluids in I like she was on like four driven trips at one point It was mental to three hours later the steroids started kicking in and they’d given me an antibiotic dosage so I was having like 10 milliliters a day before when the GP saw me they literally gave me like 500 milliliters like on the spot and I felt so much better Starts, I could swallow. I was like heaven on earth Bertie and so I was put into a ward and I do not like Hospitals so I kind of was like look I can swallow now I’ll stick to the antibiotics because they gave me new ones. I was like, I’ll take these I’ll get on it fine And she said you have to be careful because obviously the glandular fever you’re so rundown anyway That like it’s gonna be quite hard for you to beat the tonsillitis Okay. Okay BAM. I got you. Don’t you worry two days later. Ladies and gentlemen Guess what happened the doctor that just didn’t come down we came back and he was pissed off. I was burning the fever Ridiculously high I couldn’t like move couldn’t think can see straight. I woke up I was getting like two hours sleep a night at this point, but I woke up. It’s like 3:00 a.m um, like covered perfuse Lea in sweat and because the Ganges fever felt like I couldn’t move so I couldn’t do anything I was so Delusional II so out of it because I’m so dehydration. My fever was so high despite let the pain medicine I for 45 minutes 45 minutes Was in a delusion so extreme. I thought I was in a k-pop group Kid you not for 45 minutes. I had a conversation with myself in my head, which I was convinced was with other people That I was disappointed in myself because I was letting the k-pop group down because I was acting I’ll manage it down I was letting the k-pop group down because I was sick 45 minutes. I thought that led on that bed. I’m not even Korean 45 minutes took like to summon myself out of this delusion and so after the 45 minutes I was like I need to I need to try and drink something and I didn’t have a drink I was out of it So I literally was crawling out. I went back to there. No energy. I walked across the corridor and I got to I Wanted to make three steps outside of my room and then I blacked out and I hit the ground hard ladies and gentlemen, and as as we’ve already discussed a problem with people with glandular fever is a swollen spleen and a damaged liver and you can’t do contact sports for like eight weeks after you had mono because You can rupture things and I hit that ground really frickin hard. And so I was like, huh? Guess this is where I die It’s just here on the floor. I’m convinced. I’m in a k-pop group and this is how I die Eventually, my mum finds me. I say eventually I was there for a long time Helps me back into bed and then fills me with drugs and then I’m pretty sure the next day I think worse again I mean, I know it’s hard to believe that it can go downhill from there But it did we then end up having to go back to any that that that that night or the next night at around twelve eleven Ended up getting seen it like one looks hideous I not seen by three different specialists this time because obviously it’s quite rare that someone Has glandular fever and tonsillitis and it’s hospitalized twice With the same thing after being treated with lots of antibiotics and lots of steroids and Everyone was like that’s supposed to do she place. Maybe this is natural selection Maybe you know, we just cut the court, you know, we cut our losses Not cute. They then gave me another cannula another drip which by the way, I’m still bruised from. Can you see that? Look at that bruise ladies and gentlemen nasty. They then gave me even stronger steroids And then more antibiotics like a ridiculous amount and then more fluids and they gave me more pain medicine I’m I’m poor man bless her she is she was awake all night with me. I think I think We ended up on a ward and like in bed, but at 4:00 a.m. I think So we had been up the whole night and I have been absolutely shaking agony and then so they kept me on these meds and then in the morning another specialist consultant came over and Specialists and a consultant I think that’s right. There were lots of them and they came over and they looked at it You know, it’s not good when the doctor looks at you and he’s like, oh is this? this is like you you haven’t been treated Yeah, right like Because you know that would mean that it was still pretty bad, huh, I open my mouth and he was like Just nasty so he was like wait this is this is like you’ve been treated already and I was like, yeah I’ve been I’ve been in hospital tonight, hon. I’ve been here before. I’ve been on antibiotics but like Dave now my man at home and I’m back here again. Help me help me out He then was like, oh you also have glandular fever on top of this which like complicates everything which it does Um, so he was like, this is not cute Um, and so then they gave me more medicine and said I’m not allowed to leave until I can eat which was It was tough because I hadn’t eaten in the water at this point Um, the other concern comes around and she’s like I want to give you more drugs before you leave to like boost you up So she even gave me more drugs and that like kind of really house because the steroids that they’d given me one the second time One as strong as the ones they’d given me the first time because it was skeptical, but give me 7 steroids But this time she then gave me a stronger dosage in the first one. So I had a lot of steroids make me muscle either which is really disappointing but then you know turns out there’s lots of different types of Stoics which is sad, but you know, I guess Chance for too much I just take six steroid tablets every morning for three days as well something all the medicines and antibiotics and like mouthwash and everything To try and like get on top of it. I’ve almost finished my antibiotic treatment now and as you can tell I’m still a little bit swollen But the glandular fever symptoms are definitely reduced like I can walk around now for like an hour without feeling like I need a nap Which I know doesn’t seem like much but I’ve been sleeping like fifteen hours a day My bones because I essentially was on bed rest for like like four weeks my muscles if I do that Huh because I haven’t used them So I’m trying to get all the strength back in my body and I have put on like quite a bit of weight which is a little bit straighting because Didn’t my clothes fit? But it is what it is Everything is basically just taking so much longer for me to get better because I couldn’t go to the doctor’s during my exams I couldn’t like mess up my exams It turns out actually if I hadn’t sat some of the exams But like I’d conserve my energy for a couple and shown that I could be a really good student I probably would have got my predictions as an average Words now, I might just be royally screwed so I’m gonna have to wait and see so if you’re wondering that’s where I’ve been Dying in hospital. This is the longest I’ve talked in a really long time and really got through many of these clothes You better promise me the most of you who aren’t aware though You can catch mono. Ok glandular fever Only through saliva and it’s often called the kissing disease because a lot of people get it through snogging Guys, I’ve kissed anyone in months. Do you know how to press him ace? Do you know how depressing is to have the kissing disease but not to have actually kissed anyone Exactly. Let that sink in for a minute. I’m not hurting inside you are. All right you are I know this was a really weird video and I’m gonna try and meet more now because I feel that now I’ve done one I can Kind of like know what my limits are with the videos But I kind of just had to explain like where I’ve been and what’s been going on. I felt like It was a bit confusing at some points some of y’all you like once You ever come back? I thought I’ve got quite through quite a few clothes here like I’ve done a pretty good job to be fair like We’re getting there We’re making we’re making progress that’s all so yeah, thanks for watching this really long and probably really boring video about where I have been and the Fact that I got kissing disease but didn’t kiss anyone. Um Maybe that should be the click better tighten up this video kissing put me in the hospital Only Remember I’m poor now because I can’t work all summer. So Help a girl out if you can Please Seriously It’s not even I’m not trying to be so help me so you know how it is Give this video cheeky thumbs up if you liked it. Give it a thumbs down If you didn’t it’s a free world you do you boo and I’ll see you whenever with another video really it just depends on energy levels and Money shortages I’m joking and kidding guys. It was a joke. It’s a joke. It’s a joke. I’m kidding so hopefully I’ll just start looking more and more healthy and everybody I make from now on hopefully this will come down a bit from It’s swollen glory and And hopefully we can all be friends still Even though I haven’t even seen most of your faces, which is kind of weird when you when you think about it Mmm weird. Anyway, thanks for watching gang. BYEEEEEE

Making Rolling Stone Magazine Wall Art!


Hey guys, as you can see behind me, I’ve got
this beautiful wall of Rolling Stone magazine covers. This is actually an art project that’s been
about a year and a half, two years in the making. I got an idea from a friend who had wallpapered
his entire apartment in Rolling Stone wallpaper. The night that I saw it, I went home and bought
a box of a bunch of Rolling Stones. I’ve had this box sitting in my apartments
and moving with me for years now. When my friend Vindhya came up and visited
me, I decided to just make it a fun art project for the day. She’s super artsy, and so I wanted to leverage
that and just make something that was really interesting to put on my wall besides all
the comforters and random other stuff I have up on my walls that were being used for acoustic
treatment. Up on this wall I have musical artists specifically. Big-name hip-hop artists like Tupac, and Eminem,
Dr. Dre, and people who have been influential to me, along with a bunch of other random
artists. I know Deadmau5 is on there, Bob Dylan’s on
there, Kurt Cobain is on there. All these random people that I’ve really enjoyed
listening to and just have influenced me and my musical style. So I took a lot of footage while we were setting
this thing up and I just cut together a bunch of the footage with a new track that I’ve
been working on and so I hope you guys enjoy it. Run it. Man I need better style. What, what’s wrong with the pajama pants though? Alright guys, well, I hope you enjoyed that. If you did, leave a like, leave a comment
below about what you thought about it, subscribe for more videos with similar content, more
of my music in the future. I’m trying to release more consistently because,
you know, it’s the new year, gotta try to stick to those resolutions. I’ll see you guys in the next video.

Welcome to It’s Okay To Be Smart. Today we’re
gonna look at the Big Picture. [music] So I’ve been preparing for a couple big science
conferences recently and I’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of images to communicating
science. Whether it’s YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, so many of the ways that we communicate
today highlight images over words. It’s not that I think actual words on paper
are dying off, in fact those same digital tools are giving science writing something
of a rebirth. But the value of images of images as cultural currency is skyrocketing. Of course
this is nothing new to us in Science Land. Throughout the history of science photos and
illustrations have not only captured key moments IN science, but they’ve served as first “shots”
inw hat Thomas Kuhn would call “scientific revolutions” where paradigms are shifted,
theories are realized, new fields of science are born, and minds are generally blown. In that spirit I’ve collected a few of what
I think are the most important images in science history. In 1543 all it took to change the world was
seven circles. This is the so-called Copernican model of the solar system in which Nicolaus
Copernicus permanently demoted Earth from its position at the center of the universe,
in his book De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium, which is just really fun to say. Now this was not actually a very popular book,
people did not take to the streets and riot calling for Copernicus’ head. But it did change
the world, no pun intended. In fact, he wasn’t even the first person to think of this idea,
that honor goes to a Greek named Aristarchus nearly 2,000 years earlier, which we have
talked about before. But the real impact of Copernicus’ work was
that it changed very way we look at the universe. Not only was our position in it not special,
it meant that the laws of nature that we observe here would be the same everywhere else in
the universe, and although that sounds simple, that might be the most important scientific
principle that we can take from his work. This is a flea. A flea is very small. You’d
think it would be too small to change the world on its own, but you’d be wrong. This
one did just that, it comes from Robert Hooke’s Micrographia, a collection of illustrations
he put out in 1665 that became the world’s first scientific best-seller. It was hugely
popular. About a half a century after people like Galileo
were turning lenses to the stars to bring them closer, Robert Hooke turned the telescope
around to bring the microscopic world to life. Now this drawing would be a work of art in
its own right, but that intricate detail and the perfect matching of form to function on
this wee beastie, it began to challenge notions of design in nature, and shattered the idea
that humans were the most perfect living form on Earth. That beautiful illustration of a flea inspired
naturalists for the next two centuries to begin to ask WHY these forms, at every scale
of nature from the smallest bug to the largest tree, matched up so well with the needs of
those creatures. One of those scientists was this guy. Worked out pretty well. Einstein’s general theory of relativity was
a revolutionary concept when he introduced it, but scientists had relatively few ways
of actually testing it. One of the consequences of Einstein’s theory said that light should
be bent by gravity as it approaches an object. Now that means for stars behind the edge of
our sun, we could actually see them because their light would be bent around it. Unfortunately
our sun is so bright that we can’t see those stars around the edge, but in 1919 an eclipse
took place that was particularly long and dark. British astronomers Andrew Crommelin
and Arthur Eddington went to South America to capture it on film. With the sun blocked
out they were able to measure the bending of light waves around a massive object for
the very first time, and Einstein’s theory of relativity was proven correct, and he became
the celebrity know and love today. In their 1953 paper describing the double-helical
nature of DNA strands, Rosalind Franklin, with the help of James Watson and Francis
Crick, well, they, they changed everything. This simple sketch showing these two ribbons,
antiparallel and complementary bases in between, it outlined the molecular nature of genetics
and described the universal information carrying molecule for all life on Earth. That’s kind
of a big deal. I think my favorite part of this one is that it looks like it was sketched
on the back of an envelope. Although it was one of the most important scientific findings
of all time and it appeared in one of the most prestigious journals on Earth it was
so simply drawn that anyone could understand it. This is what you get with 23 days of exposure
on the Hubble telescope. You see galaxies one ten-billionth as bright as the limit of
the human eye. In this image we can see galaxies nearly 13.2 billion light years away, that
light has been traveling since nearly the beginning of time itself. Countless planets
and stars might exist inside them, it’s time travel in a photograph. On Christmas Eve 1968 as Apollo 8 came out
from behind the moon, they saw Earth rising above the lunar horizon. This picture’s a
role-reversal of sorts. Instead of this barren white moon rising above us, they saw this
delicate jewel, a blue, living Earth rising before their eyes. When that image hit the
magazines and newsstands and TV screens back on Earth, it changed the way that we view
our living planet. Galen Rowell called this “the most important environmental photograph
ever taken.” So why are pictures so important to science?
Our minds seem to be built for images, vision is our primary sense. Words and numbers are
invented languages that can enhance our communication, but I think that images are a universal language,
something whose meaning and importance we understand from birth. Our minds are also
limited. In his book “Cosmic Imagery” John Barrow says that images allow us to capture
something memorable without it needing to be remembered. The way I look at it, capturing
a moment is just another way of saying “observation” and that’s what science has been built on
from the very beginning. I only picked a handful of my favorite images
from science history, so I know I missed a ton of great ones Why don’t you leave me a
comment with your favorites. Who knows, maybe I’ll feature some of the best over on my Tumblr.
Thanks a lot for watching, and stay curious. Thank you all so much for helping to make
my science of kissing video the second most viewed video I’ve ever made. A few commenters
pointed out that this kissing research only focused on hetero male-female couples, which
is actually something we talked about in the video, but so much psychological research
has this bias. We tried to find more to put in the video, but it simply wasn’t there.
Psychologists, if you’re listening, we need to represent more people out there. So we’ll
keep an eye on that. Thanks to everyone who enjoyed the science
fiction as science fact episode from last week. You’ve already pointed out a bunch of
great science fiction that I missed. I hope you’ve also watched our collaborators’ videos
over at Idea Channel and the main PBS Digital Studios page. Lots of people left comments
saying that some science fiction is so good at predicting actual science because scientists
are people too, and they read science fiction, and they might be inspired to make what they
see into reality. And I
absolutely agree. We actually had a line in the episode exactly about that, but I decided
to pull it out so you’ll just have to take my word for it. It’s one of those unique intersections
of science and art that I think feeds into many parts of our brain and helps us create
things that we wouldn’t be able to do otherwise. We have some really special episodes coming
up over the next couple weeks. I ran a marathon for science, and then we’ve got one that’s
a little bit Dr. Seuss and a little bit chemistry, so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss
those. Links to the email, twitter, tumblr, everything else down below and be sure to
leave me a comment if there’s something you’d like us to tackle in a future episode.

Types of Group Pictures

Types of Group Pictures


I’m kind of tired hearing people say, “Say cheese!”. Can we just use “Say Veyga!” instead? What’s up, guys! This is Jomie Hospital, that’s J-O-M-I-E. And we Filipinos really LURVE to take photos. Like if there’s an occasion, we always take pictures. Or when we hangout, we take pictures here and there (Mao ba to, charot!) Because you never been to somewhere or something didn’t happen if you have no photo of it. And sometimes, when you are in a group, you have a variety of poses to make your photos more fun. “Okay, let’s take a photo. Show me your smiles, as if we’re having so much fun!” So our video for today is about it. Ladies and gentlemen, this is “The Types of Group Pictures”. And that’s it for this video. I am pretty sure we all relate to that. And if you like this video, be sure to give it a massive thumbs up, subscribe if you still haven’t. Tag that one friend who initiates the whole group photo thing, or comment down below what group poses did I miss or what group poses do you usually do in your group. That’s it, guys! Once again thank you for watching this is Jomie Hospital saying, “No regrets, just love!”

I bought a $10,000 camera!


Good morning. I came near Ginkaku-ji. It’s 8:00am in the morning and there’s nobody around. I made it. Look at the stunning view! omg it’s so cold here. I bought a new camera last year.
GFX100 from Fuji Film. For taking pictures and shooting cooking videos. I’m testing it out right now. taking timelase photos. It’s freezing here so I’m getting out of here as soon as I finish taking photos. I’m gonna pass by Ginkaku-ji, so why not visit? I’m not sure if Sumire is there, but just go check her shop and say hi to her. Hey, the lights are on. Good morning. Suddenly? Let me in. Soy latte is ready. She runs her own raw chocolate chop called Cacao Magic near Ginkaku-ji. Yes, Cacao magic. This is the highly recommended chocolate, Buddah chocolate, right? Exactly. We’re heading to the rice ball shop she recommends. Let’s go. Ao-onigiri. Here it is. There’s a sign saying “Timing is everything”. Rice ball shrine. Timing is everything. Let’s go inside. There’s an instruction paper of how to eat onigiri right over up there. oh yeah. I’m gonna serve rice ball one by one.
Eat it before the nori sheet gets soft. Kombu rice ball. It’a good. You wanna say something to the viewers? This is a weird shop. That’s it !? You wanna do that again? No no, no more please. alright. That was a good one. Yeah. I highly recommend this shop. a weird rice ball shop. Timing is everything. Timing is everything. I got it. That’s all you need. Concentration. Concentration. Thanks for the food. This shop is full of contradiction. just like your mind. No, It doesn’t feel right. Everyone is contradictory, right? Thank you! Thanks for the food! okay then I’m gonna develop the pictures I took and make it into timelapse movie. So, I’m going to develop the pictures that I took, and I took 500 pictures in total and
make it into 17 seconds of timelapse movie. Omg, this is amazing. I thought I wouldn’t need 100mp. The resolution out of this camera is just wow. oh, let’s say that in English. I was thinking I wouldn’t need 100mp but after looking at these pictures I would have to change my mind. Is that right? Am I saying it correct? Let me know in the comment. Here’s the timelapse movie that I made today. I’m gonna take cello lesson today, so see you soon bye!
