I can’t even hear what this dude’s saying but look at how ineffectually angry this bird is.

I’ve had days where I’ve wanted ti shriek like this at people too.
As a side note, I love that barn owls are used to often in art, and considered the most beautiful species, yet they make a noise like Satan’s chalkboard.
Majestic.

So much for owls saying hoot :U

"Are we ready, little one?"

*SCREECH OF MURDEROUS RAGE*

I’ve got nothing but love for folks who call angry, screeching predators ‘little one’.

It’s so obvious he loves these little guys.

It’s so obvious this little guy does not love him.

"Satan’s chalkboard."  Indeed.

I cannot even express my love of this video

appropriate white culture. dance offbeat at the club. scream at your barista when she doesn’t put enough splenda in your latte. clap at the movie theater when the credits roll. put your child on a leash.

prefer to be called caucasian even if you’re not from the caucus region. only empathize with animals and yourself. write prolific dissertations on hunger games characters being oppressed then ignore oppression in real life.

Black people are a small minority in Finland and every time you see one chances are they’re really well dressed

nothingbutbonesinabodybag said: I take head shots at my high school's theatre department and I'm curious on how I could get a professional look without a light setup? I have a Nikon d3100 with the stock lens.

Kaitlin here:

Natural light is a great way to get really professional looking light without using a lighting set up. While lights are nice to have, they’re expensive and not always convenient. Nearly every portrait I’ve ever shot on my own (meaning, not doing something in a client’s set up) I’ve shot only using natural light.

Now, that’s not to say that natural light can’t be tricky, or that there aren’t ways to harness it. There are! Your best friend will be a reflector. You can buy these for not too much money, and they come in many varieties, including silver, gold, and a matte white. Silver will throw off bright, cooler light. Gold will throw off bright, warmer light, and the matte white will give a diffused, gentler light.

(If you don’t want to buy a reflector, you can make one. Foam board and tinfoil and tape. Do one side with the shiny side out, one side with the matte side out. This is actually taught by real professors in NYU’s film department so you know it’s legit. And cheap. Mostly cheap. It does really work, though.)

So, head outside with your reflective device. Angle the reflector so you get a nice fill on the subject; under the eyes is going to be your main point of focus. You want to make sure the brows don’t cast a shadow over their eyes, especially for acting head shots.

Another solution are light rings and light boxes. They come in varying degrees of quality and price, and there are a lot of great resources online for how to make your own. That being said, I would still pick a reflector. It’s easiest to set up, doesn’t run out of power, and throws off really beautiful light.

Along with that, you’ll want to do shallow depth of field and not position your subject right up against a drab wall. Finding a location that’s not distracting but doesn’t scream school picture day will go really far to elevating the professionalism of your portraits.

Hope that helps!

We have been duped into moving capitalism’s problems around instead of resolving them, into the foolish notion that buying green is an act of divergence from capitalist exploitation.

Worried about car emissions? Buy Tesla’s Model S. Want to fight water misuse? Take shorter showers. Concerned for underserved children around the world? Use a credit card that supports a NGO. Interested in bettering working conditions for exploited laborers? Look for the “fair trade” stamp at corporate outlet malls.

But by all means, NEVER stop buying.

Identifying the central issue with this behavior, Derrick Jensen explained, “Part of the problem is that we’ve been victims of a campaign of systematic misdirection. Consumer culture and the capitalist mindset have taught us to substitute acts of personal consumption (or enlightenment) for organized political resistance.”

As individuals we should do what we can, but we have to realize that letting corporations frame/limit global issues like environmental responsibility to consumer choice is self-defeating. We need bigger tools than our individual selves. Imagine trying to fill a dump truck using a spoon. That is what we are doing when we decouple the need for organized, community-wide political resistance from our individual ability to partake in generating and sustaining solutions.

endless list of favorite characters → katniss everdeen, the hunger games

The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.

But that ain’t Jennifer Lawrence? Looks more like Keisha Castle-Hughes.

It’s Q’orianka Kilcher, and I used her as a dreamcast because I always read Katniss as PoC. Jennifer Lawrence is a fine actress, but she’s not at all an accurate representation of the Katniss in my head.

#sometimes i think the casting call was for a white girl because a woman of color raising up an army #and becoming the symbol of the revolution would be too close to social commentary they considered too radical #because we can rage against the patriarchy only if it’s in the future #and we can rage against racism only if it’s in the past #but we can’t rage against both #because that is too close to threatening the status quo of the present (via dealanexmachina)

Sometimes, in busier neighborhoods, a crowd begins to gather when I conduct my interviews. In this case, it was a particularly large crowd of 15 or 20 people. As the man recounted his happiest moment, the crowd laughed along with him. He told about a wild night out with his friends, and the crowd shouted encouragements. Some people were patting him on the back. Then the interview turned to sadder moments. And he began to talk about the death of his mother. Tears began streaming down his face. And seeing this, the crowd respectfully disappeared.
