Substantially, Lebanon,..and ⍺7S III

After being released from the quarantine room, I was super happy to be back to my natural habitat, but at the same time, I’m a bit sad that I would leave this place soon.

There is this excitement, and there is this hesitance of moving to a new place.

The world was shaken by what happened in Lebanon. I tried to avoid watching all the video footages, and stay away from those visually disturbing images, not because I don’t care, but because I want to focus my attention on things that I can do instead. There’s a sense of guilt in term of whether I would be able to help enough, as my monthly donation to UNICEF is probably too little compared to the assistance that the country needs at the moment.

So it’s would be funny, but I would admit I’m a fan of Pewdiepie. I didn’t watch him playing video games and all, but I found his regular LWIAY where he reviewed memes on subreddit so funny. His style of funny isn’t so comedic, or too much to watch. They are just jokes that I don’t know how to explain, because if I do then I would overdo it.

But what I liked about his most recent video is he uses his platform to raise awareness about the Lebanon crisis at the end, after ranting about being canceled on Twitter for Spotify playlist. “What a SIMp”, somebody would said. I liked how he doesn’t care about haters anymore, and pointing out that people would hate you regardless of what you do, and if you focus on the negative aspects of one person and hammer that down regularly (as the messages are reinforced overtime), then you can start hating one person without considering all the other good sides that they do.

The great thing is that he raised over $100,000 throughout the week, and was actually planning to donate to BlueOcean Foundation, one of the foundations that I had a chance learning about. I’m quite amazed by his energy (for releasing videos out frequently), and for being so committed to provide content to his audiences (including me); for that I’m actually quite grateful and inspired.

So Felix (or Pewdiepie, whatever name you would prefer), thank you for keep doing great and keep looking at the positives.

For those who is interested in helping Lebanon to deal with this crisis, please consider donating to the following organizations:

Donation to the Lebanese Red Cross (LRC): https://www.supportlrc.app/donate/

Donation to Lebanese Food bank: https://donate.lebanesefoodbank.org/

Thank you for your help! 🙏

This following video is actually a featuring short film by Sony Artisans Renan Ozturk and Taylor Rees using the brand new ⍺7S III camera. In the pursuit of a once-in-a-lifetime image of Andy Lewis walking on a Slackline with the full moon in the back drop, the team have planned and prepared for months before the successful moment happened. I just genuinely appreciate the effort that they make to shot the scene. It’s so beautiful, and it’s hard to imagine where on Earth would you be able to see this ever again.

This article is not paid, so I’m just sharing with you what I learned about the newest release of Sony’s camera. It’s a bit pricy for a gig, but for professional photographers it seems like a very great option. I’m a noob in this, so instead of explaining to you in detail, you can watch the following video where Youtuber Gerald Undone talked about the product. Enjoy!
