I’m using either just the on-camera flash or using a standing key light. With the flash, the light is so bright, it actually “flattens” out your face and makes it look wider that it actually is. So what you have to do is go into Photoshop and deepen those midtones, in essence, model out your own face again. With the standing light, I just wanted to see if I could get that highlight on the top of my hair. Now that I know it works, I need a reflector so I can fill in the shadow in the front, since the light doesn’t reach my face.

Hey, it’s a learning process. I’m not ashamed to admit it.

Top Ten YouTubers According to SocialBlade To Beat

Top Ten YouTubers by SocialBlade

Top Ten YouTubers by SocialBlade

By Chongchen Saelee

As of this post, PewDiePie is the top YouTuber in the world. He posts more than one video per day, and each video gets about 4 million views on average. According to the Internet, he brings YouTube about $60 million in ad revenue. But his actual cut isn’t well-known. Some estimate he is a billionaire by now.

But I don’t really care for PewDiePie, although I’ve checked out some of his videos and don’t get his appeal. He seems like he’s on mad ADHD. So how he could gain that many viewers and subscribers really makes me question his success.

He’d have to be some kind of heir to Swedish money or something. They just make it look like he’s earning it commercially.

Anyway, I know that SocialBlade is the official statistics bean counter for YouTube. They don’t have to lie that they are doing people a service “for free”. Much like any business network, it takes a lot of companies put together to make an ecosystem work. YouTube’s stats bean-counting, then, is done by SocialBlade. So SocialBlade is technically YouTube. They are one in the same.

Why can I say this? Because you’d need somekind of handshake to access all the user’s stats like that. And you need somekind of heavy coordination because there are millions of YouTube accounts to be tabulated. Thus, I think SocialBlade is pretty much the official bean counter for YouTube, aka is YouTube.

Anyhoo, the point of this post was to set a goal for myself on who I must beat in the YouTube game. So now I must find a gimmick to beat PewDiePie. It’s got to be like that scene in Will Smith’s “Pursuit of Happyness” where instead of fighting other competitors just above you, you go all the way to the top and do battle. Because no matter what, you’ll fall all the way back to the bottom anyway.

So, I suppose, I need to don the Asian PewDiePie mask now? Here comes Asian PewDiePie!!!

By Chongchen Saelee

Here are the very simple retouch steps I took to make Lea really pop out and look feminine.

  • Soft lighting
  • Enhanced color in pupils
  • Put some color into cheeks and nose to give youthful look
  • Enhanced contrast of shadows and highlights to create moist skin effect
  • Smaller nose
  • Color correction that is more pinkish associated with fertility

Other things you could have also done:

  • Moisten the lips, but don’t overdo it
  • Moisten the hair, make it extra shiny
  • Cliche, but photoshop in jewelry, subtle earring, necklace, etc.
  • Vignette with feminine symbology, background, etc

Official Design for Doomsday in Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice

Doomsday is a subterrain creature from deep in Krypton’s core. So his bones and blood is pure Kryptonite. It glows from white to green when he gets angry. Much like an elephant would kill a human, Kal-el really can’t stop Doomsday, not even on Krypton. It’s all relative.

FBI facial recognition software not as good as Facebook

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/fbi-billion-dollar-facial-recognition-091500415.html

By Chongchen Saelee

According to this article, FBI can match faces at 85% accuracy. Facebook, on the other hand, can do it at 97%. But let me paint a picture why that is. The fact that FBI can be that accurate is still quite impressive, but the reason Facebook’s is way better is because of their funding, the lifeblood of Facebook is CIA. FBI is like the police. They only enforce laws. CIA, however, don’t follow any laws and that’s why they seem to be more innovative, at the cost of invading billions of people’s privacy. CIA creates the weapons and tools, FBI uses them. CIA is Whistler, FBI is Blade. It’s a need-to-know basis.

The impressive thing will be which one’s algorithm can pick out a face from low-resolution images. Facebook has the advantage only because the samples are high-resolution. But FBI’s might have the edge and is more useful because it can detect faces from low-resolution. So, it’s a matter of what purpose it’s used for. One is actually smarter than the other. If FBI’s facial software can detect a face out of finite amount of pixels that don’t resemble a face, then I’d say FBI’s software is actually better.
