More often than not, the pop-up flash on your DSLR or mirrorless camera tends to make pictures worse rather than better.Therefore, we generally reserve it as a last resort, when there simply is not enough light to make a proper exposure without it.However, the Koldunov Brothers, known for their various inexpensive DIY photography hacks, are here with a solution to the pop-up flash problem: a white balloon.Even without any dialogue, it takes less than one minute for the Koldunov Brothers to illustrate how the balloon trick works in the above video.While it may not be the most efficient or elegant solution out there, we cannot argue with its effectiveness: portraits shot using the balloon to diffuse the light look dramatically different than with the bare flash.More: This iPhone case packs 40 high-power LEDs and integrates with the camera s flash

The first radio shows re-read newspaper headlines, the first TV shows were teleplays with cameras pointed at the readers, even websites today mostly replicate past forms with digital paper.Right now a tectonic shift from broadcast to streamed TV is upon us, and sometimes it feels like everyone is missing the point.While everyone has talked about cord-cutting, surprisingly few have done it — largely because the packages on offer were substandard; the pricing didn t work out; and content was limited.Yet a spin on these new services quickly reveals a gap in knowledge and how, so far, many companies have failed to understand how people s behaviors and expectations have changed.More often than not we don t go to content, it comes to us — suggested by friends or algorithms, in feeds or auto-playing next.In this context, two foundational elements of TV choice architecture are wildly irrelevant for the future but are still used as organizational principles for billion dollar decisions.
