Comedian John Crist made this humorous 3-minute video poking fun of the “The Millennial Marriage Proposal,” in which a girlfriend being proposed to (played by Megan Batoon) is too focused on the resulting photos and videos to enjoy the moment.
“Because what’s the point of getting engaged if you don’t post it on Instagram?,” Crist says.

YouTube user StupotMcDoodlepip created this video turned an animated GIF into a flipbook, shot a video of himself flipping that flipbook, printed the still frames of that video into a new flipbook, and recorded the above video. It’s an 11-second video of himself flipping a flipbook that shows himself flipping a flipbook.
It’s flipception. We need to go deeper.

CMYK—which stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (or Black)—is the color model used in most printing. It’s called a subtractive color model, and if you don’t understand what that means or how it works, this brilliant little demo should help.
The video was posted by the Instagram account @physicsfun, and it shows how each subsequent color after the Key below subtracts brightness from the background to create a final color image. In CMYK, all the colors together overlap to create black, compared to the additive RGB model where white is the result of combining Red, Green, and Blue.
All @physicsfun had to do was stack four CMYK coasters on on top of the other, and Vermeer’s painting “Girl with a Pearl Earring” emerges. Check out the video below:
After sharing his 8 camera hacks in 90 seconds, Toronto-based photographer Peter McKinnon is back again with another helpful video for beginners. In the 6-minute one above, he shares 5 basic tips that can help you instantly improve your photos.
Here’s a quick overview of the tips he shares and shows:
#1. Angles: Take an extra few seconds to carefully consider the angle you’re shooting from.
#2. Shoot Through: Shoot your subject through other things to add more “interestingness” to shots.
#3. Think Opposite: Approach a subject from a way that other people aren’t.
#4. Lighting: Lighting is one of the most important parts of a photo, so give it priority.
#5. Framing: Place objects into the frame that help you tell your story.
You can find some of McKinnon’s work on his website and on Instagram.
