The Rules Of Photography Knowing When To Break Them.

images12Creative photography is a mix of many ingredients; art and technology, skill and patience, cold mechanical knowhow and individual flair.

For a beginner learning the basics, it would be nice if there was a simple set of rules to follow to make the whole thing easier. Surely someone could just tell you what aperture to use in a given situation, or how to structure a composition to get the best results every time?

Photography is a lot like learning to drive. With a car, you need to know the road rules, and you need to know the basic skills of steering, accellerating and braking. These can be learned easily with a bit of practice. But even when you have mastered the essentials, you still need to get to know your car, because each car is a little different. Then you need experience with night driving, wet-weather driving, off-road driving…

What you must understand is that following the rules will only take you so far. In photography, you will find that rules help you in the beginning, and some rules will stay with you throughout your career. The trick is to understand when the rules don’t apply, or when you should choose to ignore them. This is the type of knowledge that can’t easily be taught. It comes with experience, and is what gives you indiduality as a photographer.

Below are just a few of the rules that, for an experienced photographer, are just made to be broken.

Photography Rule #1. Outdoor Photos Should Be Taken In The Early Morning Or Late Afternoon. This is one of the first principles of landscape photography, and can be applied to almost any outdoor photography. The softness and warm colour of the sunlight at these times adds beauty and character to

Psycho Realm Lyrics An Early Example Of Horror Rap

imagescMany students of 90s hip hop could tell you about hip hop super group Psycho Realm off the top of their heads. Those same people would probably tell you, that while Psycho Realm lyrics do not epitomize horror rap values, Psycho Realms lyrics had enough influence on Psychopathic Records artists Insane Clown Posse for them to invite their Californian rap pals on tour.

But even though Psycho Realm lyrics to not embody what horror rap is known for, at least as far as Psychopathic Records is concerned, that doesnt mean Psycho Realms couldnt have had another type of impact on horror rap Gods Insane Clown Posse. And to say that Psycho Realm lyrics did have an impact on these legendary horror rappers would be quite the compliment, because Insane Clown Posse even owns their own labelPsychopathic Records–full of other talented horror rap artists. To say they know what theyre doing would be an understatement.

The similarity of Psycho Realm lyrics and Insane Clown Posse lyrics that sticks out the most to me has nothing to do with their content; instead, the delivery of Psycho Realms lyrics and the delivery of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dopes horror rap lyrics are on the same wave length. Both are tight, rhythmic, and dropped with intensity. Listen to Psycho Realms lyrics on “Stone Garden” and compare them to Insane Clown Posses lyrical delivery on “Hokus Pokus” (released on Great Milenko through Psychopathic Records) and youll see what I mean.

So theres the delivery comparison. And while there may be more to discuss in that realm of things, perhaps there is some overlap when it comes to the substance of Psycho Realms lyrics and the meaning of lyrics that come from the mouths of Psychopathic Records artists. Consider this

Whitewashing In Fashion Industry Where Have The Black Models Gone

Ever felt, why there was a relative absence of black fashion models in the recent fashion week? No doubt, its true that the cut throat competition brews in between the model agencies for searching for the most glamorous fashion models, with the best of poses, head shots and beauty. But with innumerable white models, walking down the ramp, its definitely getting difficult for black women to mark their advent, unlike as they did during the late seventies.

So, does race play a pivotal role in deciding the career prospects of this tempting fashion industry? Are the days of black celebrities like Naomi Campbell, Liya Kebede and Donyale Luna, finally over? Sadly, these questions reveal some hard and bitter truths. On one hand, black fashion wear might have appeared as a style statement, but sadly on the other hand, the entire fashion bustle is perhaps undergoing a complete white wash. Long back, Ms Mendoza happened to be the first black woman to be crowned as Ms Columbia in 2002. But no other black woman could repeat history again.

Earlier, the black fashion models used to grace the cover of more than hundreds of magazines like Hapers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Vogue. Fashion models like Waris Dirie, had even modeled for Express jeans and Chanel. Along with the top model agencies, even the advertising giants like Tommy Hilfiger and Abercrombie & Fitch hired these black models. Several international fashion magazines, fashion model portfolios, commercials and catwalks featured the budding black models that had literally set the bestowed platforms on fire, with their cuts, curves and figures.

But nowadays, the so-called universal fashion models agency poses challenging situations for the black women. The number of black women chosen by the glamorous model agency has dramatically decreased. Now, even the fashion aficionados

Blockbuster Whitney Houston Concert In Brisbane Is A Flop

A whole lot of people in Australia were really looking forward to seeing Whitney Houston in concert just recently. It had been a long time, over 20 years, since she was there and they still love her. There were tons of ticket purchased for what was supposed to be a big blockbuster stage performance . This tour was called the Nothing But Love Tour, but it was not love that all of her loyal fans were feeling after seeing this disappointment.

It is common knowledge all the issues that she has had in life for the past 2 decades. All of the escapades between her and her famous husband were always splashed across the news releases. And everybody that knows of her knows about the drug abuse issues too. It wasn’t that she didn’t seem to be trying to do her best for this concert, it seemed that she just didn’t have it in her.

She seemed to make it through just the first 2 songs before things started to go bad. Only two songs and then she has to take a break and let her brother and the rest of the band take over for a while. So while she was nowhere to be seen they plated a few of her well known tunes to keep the crowd occupied.

After a while she came back on stage and tried to make it through the beautiful song that she is so well known for, I Will Always Love You. She had to stop partway through to apparently sooth her self with water and the way she sang the song was very throaty rather than the incredible way she sung it before. This was just too much for many of the people in attendance and plenty of them left well before

How 3d Animation Is Taking Over The World

You may wonder of the unique aspects computer generated graphics bring through modern technology. With the innovations of information technology becoming more commonplace, the success of 3D animation continues. From those realistic figures to overwhelming landscapes such as computer generated cities, you can imagine the power that 3D Animation brings you.

This form of technology works from three important focuses: 3D modeling, layout and animation, and rendering. As these three steps work together, the product truly provides a unique design to the eye, making it art in motion through high-end technology.

3D animation roots from the modeling where the skeletal framework step occurs. You may notice your favorite video game character or perhaps movie character having proportions and designs that really give them that natural flow. This is the importance of modeling in 3D animation: it provides the sense of anatomical precision or even practical correctness as you engage in the graphics of this stage. Without proper 3D modeling, your 3D animation will lack functionality!

Once the model is ready and functional, the next important aspect to obtain that beautiful output is the natural layout and animation step. Regarded as an important asset to your 3D animation, you need to evaluate the spatial factor and the integration of your models in a given environment. Understanding the dynamics of Physics with the interaction forces will help you visualize and even realize the model in an environment once you layout them. When you combine these together, your layout and animation will really bring out the interaction between your models.

Of course, 3D animation cannot be completed unless you proper rendering is administered. This involves quality image generation. This naturally entails your 3D model provided the necessary elements such as lighting and other fine tuning to finalize your 3D model. With the different components in motion, rendering

Opera singer makes injury claim

An international opera singer is making an injury claim over an incident which he says has ruined his career.

According to a report in the Bournemouth Echo, David Montague-Rendall was performing at the newly built Copenhagen Opera House when part of the two-tier set collapsed on him.

The venue, which opened in 2005 and is the national opera house of Denmark, is one of the most modern buildings of its kind and is located on the island of Holmen.

Mr Montague-Rendall tumbled around 15 feet and sustained serious injuries as a result. His left hip was shattered and both his shoulders were damaged.

Consequently, he is seeking accident compensation for his suffering and loss of earnings.

According to the performer, he is owed around 250,000 for his lack of income since the incident occurred.

The 61-year-old said bookings have dried up because opera companies doubt his ability to achieve the same high standards and his last performance was two years ago.

He is making his injury claim against the Danish Ministry of Culture.

Mr Montague-Rendall remarked: “During the performance two stage levels were raised to give the impression that I was underground in a tomb. “On the night in question, the stage above went sideways instead of up, resulting in the destruction of the set. “I was knocked down at least 15 feet and tried to crawl to safety to avoid being crushed.”

The legal experts seeking accident compensation on his behalf pointed out he has had to sell his house since he stopped performing.

They added that, while the Danish Ministry of Culture has admitted liability for the suffering caused by the collapse, it has not accepted the extent of the damage.

His case continues against the organisation
