Tutorial: How to shoot and edit a day to night time-lapse
We've posted plenty of time- lapse videos over the years and we're always amazed by these photo-videos, but we've never really grasped the ideal way of making one. To be honest we don't have the patience for it either and when it comes to making a totally cool time-lapse, patience is a must.

Interracial Couples And The Racist Remarks They Have To Deal With
Social Media is a wonderful thing and an awful beast. It has given a voice to millions who couldn't be heard before, but it has also made those who hurt heard.

Racism is rife too and it doesn't discriminate. Whether you're black or white you'll find someone who feels the need to hurt you.
Donna Pinckley has made a beautiful series of portraits of interracial couples to show us love sees no color. Except for the idiots who leave racists comments behind.

In a remote corner of the Urals region at the end of a narrow-gauge railway is Kalach, population about a dozen. Three decades ago 600 people called the village home, but the local forestry industry suffered as the former Soviet Union imploded and people moved away in search of work.

Around the world in 45 toilets
Some 2.4 billion people around the world don't have access to decent sanitation and more than a billion are forced to defecate in the open, risking disease and other dangers, according to the United Nations.

To mark World Toilet Day on November 19, Reuters photographers around the globe photographed toilets in their cities, towns and villages.Open this photogallery >

Most of the images we see of the earlier parts of the 20th century are all in black and white or maybe sepia, but of course life in those dasy wasn't just black and white or sepia. They had color too.
These images attempt to recreate some of that color in their lives.
