It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work with Jason Fried

Chase Jarvis Photography Chase

With so much information, and gadgets and access and hustle and email and …and.. aren’t you overloaded at work!? It’s understandable and it’s a real problem. If this describes you or someone you love…you’ll LOVE this episode of the show. Enter: Jason Fried.  He’s the brilliant NYT best-selling author and co-founder of the software firm, Basecamp.  Since long before meeting Jason in person he’s always caught my eye as perhaps THE outspoken thinker / critic of the current status of work, our unhealthy habits around our jobs, and our addictions to busy-making. Whether it’s the toxic hustle, the grow-at-all-cost mentality, or the idea of working your fingers to the bone…Jason helps us all see why 99% of this approach is rubbish. And within 3 minutes of meeting him / listening to this episode, I’m banking you’ll be in agreement with him. The one refreshing difference with Jason?  He also gives us a roadmap to fix what we’ve broken. In this episode we talk about is latest book (co-authored with previous cjLIVE podcast guest David Heinemeier Hansson!) called It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work, which lays out a play-by-play on how to avoid all exhaustion, stress, and burnout and how to […]

Tame Your Distracted Mind with Neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley

Chase Jarvis Photography Chase

Adam Gazzaley is a neuroscientist, speaker, entrepreneur, photographer, author… He’s a hyphen through and through. But what he’s obsessed with these days is using technology to retrain and improve the use of our human brains, using it even to treat ADHD and other mental conditions. Now more than ever before the world is moving at a pace faster than our 2 million year old brains can catch up. Adam says that as a species our brains aren’t evolving quickly enough so we’re experiencing a cognition crisis and the fallout of this crisis are attention deficit disorders. Through the application of treatments involving video games and mindfulness practices, we can not only be more productive in our life, but also feel more fulfilled in our lives. We talk about how to build our minds to increase our attention, expand our perception, improve our decision making, and better regulate our emotions. In today’s episode: The brain is a muscle – it’s trainable. We may soon be entering a time where doctors prescribe digital medicine – video games as medication for ADHD. Even if you don’t have ADHD or another attention deficit disorder, you can still benefit from training your brain. You can […]

Harnessing the Power of Auto-Stacking in Lightroom

PetaPixel Jayphen Simpson

Auto-stacking in Lightroom can quickly organize a huge set of images in to more manageable ‘stacks’, which are small groups of images grouped according to their capture time. This 6-minute video from photographer Anthony Morganti shows how you can use the feature to speed up your workflow.

Auto-stacking is especially useful when you are taking burst images, like Morganti in his wildlife photography example. Normally this will result in a huge grid or filmstrip of near-identical images, which is difficult to deal with. By stacking them, you can reduce the size of the grid and quickly see which images were shot as a burst.

To enable the feature, right-click on any image in your film strip or grid and select Stacking>Auto-Stack by Capture Time.

You will get a dialog that lets you choose the time between stacks. The default shown in the above image is set to 01:00, which means that any image that was taken within a 1-minute period will be stacked.

At first, you won’t see anything change. To collapse the stacks and clean up your film strip, you’ll need to again right click an image and this time select Stacking>Collapse All Stacks. Your film strip will instantly shrink and you will see numbers in the corner of each image indicating how many images are in the stack.

Another great use of this feature is for image bracketing, where you take a series of images within a short period in order to later combine them for an HDR. By setting the capture time period to something shorter, you can automatically stack those bracketed shots to make them easier to deal with.
