Using a tutorial my friend, Adrienne, forwarded this tutorial to me and I have to say once I figured it out and got the hang of it I'm addicted. There always seems to be one little step that makes a difference missing in most tutorials...but if you can figure it out (or find a really good tutorial) then it's awesome.
It's awesome when I run across something new in photography, well the idea of it all. Here is one. The people upload their own photos,...
The people upload their own photos, so online participation is necessary, it's still a very unique idea.
"Social constructions of gender differences are easily prevalent in the way women and men do or do not wear makeup. We typically assume that masculinity is tied to male bodies and femininity is tied to female bodies, but gender is more complex than that. The term “gender” simply refers to a range of physical, mental, and behavioral characteristics, and the gender roles that are considered appropriate in our society influence how we present ourselves and what we expect from others."

Film is not Dead, it just smells funny... I found this quote on flicker some where, I love film.

The Lumi Process is a revolutionary photographic print process for textiles and natural materials. The process is based on Inkodye, mixable, dilutable, water-based dyes, which develop their color in sunlight. Currently available in three colors: red, orange and blue. Inkodye can bind to any vegetal or animal fiber, such as cotton, linen, wool, silk, suede and wood. Once fixed, the color becomes permanent and can go through repeated machine washes without fading.
Inkodye's light-sensitive properties open new possibilities for artistic and commercial uses:
- True photographic prints that show a range of tonality rather than half-tone patterns. Turn your smartphone pictures into beautiful designs.
- Permanent. Your prints will be soft and machine-washable. The dye actually becomes part of the fiber.
- Works on any natural fiber. Great on 100% cotton tees and delicate materials like silk, suede and wool which are not capable of going through pH or heat-setting stages.
- Prints over rough materials such as burlap, jute and sewn garments, into recesses that typical screen-printing could not reach.
- Uses the sun! No need for electricity, silkscreens or high-end equipment.

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ~ Bob MarleyIf you know someone in a band or that is a musician and you own a camera expect to be asked to take band photos or something. Over the years I've known quite a few, below are some of my photos. It can be a very rewarding opportunity and a chance to see a free show.

Concert photography can be a fun and exiting experience. The basics of covering a concert for the first time including getting to know the artist, doing a bit of preplanning to know what the environment will look and feel like, picking your fastest lens(es), switching to both Spot Metering and Manual Mode to have the most control of exposure and keeping an eye on ISO so you are aware of noise in your photos.

Color theory is a science in itself. Studying how colors affect different people, either individually or as a group, is something some people build their careers on. And there’s a lot to it. Something as simple as changing the exact hue or saturation of a color can evoke a completely different feeling. Cultural differences mean that something that’s happy and uplifting in one country can be depressing in another.

If you want to learn the proper way to shoot sunsets or dramatic shadow pictures the web is filled with tons of websites, but for the most part it's all about the eye, bracket for the shadow and see what you get.
Here are some I took...
Some good points:
Tripod – If you’re shooting at longer shutters speeds and with longer focal lengths then a tripod or some other way of ensuring your camera is completely still is essential.
Manual Focus – sometimes when shooting in extreme lighting conditions some cameras can have trouble focussing. If this is the case for your camera consider switching to manual focus to ensure you get nice crisp shots.
Look around you – The wonderful thing about sunsets is that they not only create wonderful colors in the sky in front of you but they also can cast a beautiful golden light that is wonderful for other types of photography. As the sunset progresses keep an eye on other opportunities for shots around you (not just in front of you). You might find a great opportunity for a portrait, landscape shot, macro shot etc behind you in the colden light.
Keep Shooting – A sunset or sunrise constantly changes over time and can produce great colors well after the sun goes down or appears so keep shooting at different exposures and focal lengths as I’ve mentioned above until you’re sure it’s all over.
