In this 4 minute video, he demonstrates the method and why he uses it. C-Stands can be used to hold just about any equipment you can think of, and that equipment is often expensive. Setting up a C-Stand incorrectly can result in it toppling over and damaging that equipment, or worse, yourself or your crew.

‘Fleshy’ Pic Seen on Politician’s Phone, Hunt Leads to Gordon Parks Photo Here’s a strange story that shows the power of Internet crowdsourcing in doing unusual reverse image searches. It all started with a blurry, seemingly questionable photo seen on a smartphone in the hands of a politician in the UK Parliament. Mashable reports that after the UK Parliament returned to the Palace of Westminster after last week’s general election, MP Anna Soubry Tweeted a photo of the packed chamber: But Soubry abruptly deleted the photo less than an hour after it was posted, apparently because people began wondering what the MP sitting in front of Soubry was looking...

Google Photos Now Suggests Photos to Archive Using A.I. Google has been steadily adding features to their Google Photos app since I/O 2017. The new archive feature isn’t the most exciting of them, but it has an interesting trick up its sleeve. Compared to the content-aware fill, photo books, and automated sharing that Google is rolling out, archiving tools are less than thrilling. Perhaps that’s why Google did not make much of a fuss when they started rolling out Archive a few weeks ago.
