Brandon Stanton, Humans of New York creator and brilliant human being, had the opportunity to present a TED Talk at Columbia University. Check it out!

And afterwards, remember this: while yes, we want to give the people what they want, it is important as photojournalists to realize there are so many other things going on every second all around us. Focus on everyone. Seriously. If they weren’t pictured, they weren’t there.

Remember what Kid President said? “I took the road less traveled. And it hurt, man!” So do just that, space out your photographers at events, cover the good, bad, happy, sad. 

Trust me. It will make all the difference.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

Worst. Yearbook. Blogger. Ever.
If you’re behind the times like me, you just recently realized a new Yearbook Discoveries issue was released! This issue features a guy named Eli McNutt. He’s great and you should read about him because he’s graduating college and is on the cover of a yearbook magazine. Say what?! 
Seriously, though. How cool is that? You still have that lasting influence of yearbook quite literally YEARS after that saga is over in your life? Guess there really is life after yearbook! And it just so happens to include even more yearbook. Love.

An inside look at Instagram’s brand new cleaner, more professional logo

To the non-design obsessed, a logo may seem like a relatively small detail, but in reality it represents the personality and identity of a product. This is the case for Instagram, and the Facebook-owned photo sharing service has released a new logo today, built heavily atop its previous script logotype.
