Thanks to today’s smartphone technology, most of us have a camera on our person at all times. The iPhone 7 shoots a maximum pixel depth in RAW of 3024 x 4032, or 10″ x 13.5″ at 300DPI. The camera has a 12MP rear-facing cameras with an aperture of ƒ/1.8. That’s phenomenal quality for a phone. I’m also very excited about the new Light L16 camera coming out sometime next spring.

I try to put Rockwell’s pre-1963 work in historical context based on who was commissioning him—The Saturday Evening Post—which only allowed white Americans to be depicted in their art in non-subjugational ways.

Quiet Please: The Thing on the Fourble Board – One of The Most Terrifying Radio Plays Ever

Quiet Please was an old-time radio horror/fantasy drama which ran from June 8, 1947 to June 20, 1949.

#TBT 30 Perfectly Autumn Stock Photos

autumn_hero

A cold chill is in the air so you’d better grab your jacket. It’s harvest season! It’s time for costumes and apple-picking. It’s time for pumpkin pie, cornucopias, and wool sweaters. It’s time for shorter days and morning frost. It’s time for trick-or-treating and thanksgiving meetings. It’s time for 30 stock photos that perfectly exemplify Autumn in a way that’d bring a nostalgic tear to Martha Stewart’s eye. I’ve always loved the colors of autumn,
