I'll Take Ding Dong Ditch Over Fortnite Any Day, The Washington PostIt was 10:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve 2018. I found three boys, rolled into fetal positions near two sets of outlets in my bedroom. Their eyes appeared rabid as their fingers worked furiously on cellphones they gripped like straws over plates of white lines at Studio 54 in 1978. The analogy isn’t hyperbole; some experts say video gaming affects the frontal cortex and raises dopamine levels just like drugs or sex. Considering their all-consuming obsession and the lack of social skills developing in our little screen junkies, we may not have to worry so much about the latter. Until they move back home into the basement, with their Wii and virginity, in their late 20s.

Bonus Sidebar: Pelley’s Photography Tips
1. It is all about the light. It’s well worth it to get up before dawn and set up on your subject and wait for that early morning light to hit, and the same is true for the sunset light; everything becomes explosively colorful that way. When shooting outside, the greatest part of the day is useless. You have 90 minutes in the morning and 90 minutes in evening. Everything else will be disappointing in my view.
2. With wildlife photography, patience is key. Find a place and settle in and wait and wait. Let the animals come to you. You can’t chase them, or you’ll have lots of pictures of animal butts!
3. Use a shutter speed that is very high so that the sharpness of the picture expresses the content. You want to capture the real crystal Christmas of it. That has to do with f-stops and shutter speeds, particularly with wildlife.
4. Buy the fastest lenses you can afford. A fast lens is the reflection of the lens’s greatest aperture. This gives photographers a real flexibility as far as the f-stops and shutter speeds to control depth of field and the quality of the picture.
5. Keep a camera with you all the time and shoot, shoot, shoot.
6. Look for things that other people don’t see. Present familiar ideas in a way that makes the viewer see them for the first time, in a way they’ve never seen them before, and gives an understanding of the subject that they’ve never had before. That’s the definition of artistry.
