Thermal imaging is more expensive, and takes up more space (not to mention heavier) than a simple pair of glasses.

Another question:
Ever noticed in some interviews the camera shoots from the side while the person is talking - still looking ahead?

Sometimes it's a close-up




Is there a term for that? What is the purpose of it, from a cinematic perspective?
What would a film school teacher say when introducing it?

(I'd like to punch the person who came up with it)

I'm far from a film professor but if I had to guess I'd say it's probably easier to hold an audiences attention if you have a variety of shots, as opposed to the entire interview being one locked down camera angle.

It also helps with editing (cutting out stuff) when you can switch between camera angles, because then there's no jarring mismatch of poses after removing a cough etc. since the pose would look different from a different angle anyways.

How do people become instagram influencers? It doesn’t have a retweet/share function so it seems a bit odd to me that people can get themselves known through instagram?

I wouldn't say I'm on the level of an influencer, but I have 12k followers for my rather niche account (financial trading). It takes years of putting out content, engaging with people and being found by using the right hashtags. Content is key on instagram to get noticed.

It's pure algorithm. People find stuff using the amorphous "explore" tab which shows you stuff it thinks you'll like, as well as some sponsored stuff. It's like youtube where the algorithm does its own thing and might hide you for random reasons, but Instagram's is even more sophisticated and can guess exactly what's in an image.

I was watching some decomposition videos. A few things I am curious about:
Why the maggots don't eat the skin here, is it because the part is dry as a result of air contact, or is it something about the skin tissue:
Why we don't see any maggots in this sushi decomposition video, and why does it repeatedly shrink and expand?

So that's what gas station sushi starts out as.
I'm guessing the shrink/expand is caused by first dehydration and then gasses produced by the bacteria.
I'm not sure why it's so 'pulsating' though. The gasses escaping at intervals, maybe.
