Shakira a Popular Vocalist

In a recent race that took place popular celebrities such as the likes of Akon, Chipmunk and, er, Chico also participated. But towards the end FIFA gave in to the prominent vocals and a very flexible belly dancing from the famous singer Shakira. It was a good idea of getting this lithe-limbed beauty to dance to the tunes of the Official World Cup Song had been a great idea. She is a very good singer and is recognized globally and has more than 50 million album sales under her belt. Her song that had been titled ‘Waka Waka (translated as -This Time For Africa-) has seen another side of Shakira as she replaces her standard lyrics with that of words that may not sound out of place if played for an X Factor winner. The lyrics say that people’s expectations are on the rise and hence they should be fed on them. Not only this but the respective song that is ‘Waka Waka’ also has a silly yet a very catchy chorus that has been taken cribbed from a very old Cameroonian tune. Hence she has several hip-swinging moments. Shakira is a popular female vocalist that almost all of us not only know but also love. Although she is not that popular in the states, but she is an international celebrity who is very famous for the music that she makes. To top it she has not only a great singing ability but she is also very beautiful. When Shakira had become 14 years old she had released her debut studio album. Although it had hardly managed to sell around one thousand copies she still went back to the studio to make another attempt. Although this second music album had done much better and had also gotten better reviews, it had still not done much to help her career. The respective pop singer has been doing her belly style dance since she had been four years old. She later said in an interview that when she had been four years old she had realized that she had been flexible enough to do those hip movements. She had much interest in Arabic rhythms and hence used to dance that way at her school concerts that were held on Fridays. Shakira has also been named as being the 20th woman in the FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World- in the year 2006. This had been after the time when she had begun dating the Argentinean President’s son named Antonio De La Rua in the year 2000. The following year that is in 2001, they got officially engaged and then made plans to get married in the future. Other than the official theme for the World Cup, her new music album also includes yet another song that is in Spanish language and is titled -Goal of my heart. Buy cheap shakira tickets and see her in her live concerts and musical shows.

Learn Photography Create The Maximum Depth Of Field

Imagine the kind of pictures you could take if everything were in focus from one foot to infinity? Here’s the inside scoop on one of the oldest secrets in photography.

Galen Rowell, one of my favorite photographers, used to create landscape compositions in which both foreground objects and distant elements appeared in perfect focus. The effect is stunning. The viewer can both study a delicate pattern of petals in a foreground flower and marvel at the beauty of outlying mountains. How did he do that?

Galen found a way to capture tremendous depth of field in his images. In other words, he could have everything in focus, from inches away to infinity. You can employ this same technique in your photography; you just have to know the hack. Three important factors come into play on these types of shots:

The focal length of your lens: The wider the better

The lens aperture: The smaller the better (f-16, f-22, etc.)

The object on which you focus in the composition: Contrary to expectation, it’s not the thing closest to you.

Once you’ve properly set these adjustments, you can create depth of field that spans from a foot in front of you to the puffy clouds drifting by.

Focal Length: The Wider the Better

Wide-angle lenses, or zoom lenses set to wide angle, are a key factor in depth-of-field photography. They help create the illusion that more things are in focus. Galen Rowell usually shot with 35mm film cameras, and often he would use a 24mm wide-angle lens for this type of landscape image. For this hack, I recommend you find a digital lens that provides a film-camera equivalent of a 28mm lens. You can go wider if you want (such as 24mm), but as you’ll see, that’s easier said than done in the digital world.

For example, if you’re shooting with an SLR, such as a Nikon D70, then you would need to use Nikon’s 17-55mm zoom lens to get roughly the same angle of view as Galen’s 24mm lens on his 35mm SLR.

Why? Well, the D70 and many other digital SLRs have image sensors that are smaller than 35mm film. That changes the relationship between lens and camera, and the result is that you often have to multiply the focal length of the lens by a factor of 1.5 to get the same angle of coverage that you would with the lens mounted on a film camera.

If you multiply the Nikon 17-55mm zoom lens by 1.5, you get the 35mm equivalent of a
25.5-82.5mm lens. You may or may not care about all of this. But what you do need to know is that you have to find a lens with a film-camera equivalent of at least a 28mm lens for this type of photography. The Nikon 17-55mm zoom on a D70 should work nicely.
If you’re shooting with a digital point and shoot, such as a Canon PowerShot A80, then your built-in zoom lens (7.8-23.4mm) has the film-camera equivalent of a 38-114mm zoom lens? not quite as wide as we’d like for this type of shooting. The good news is that Canon offers a wide converter (WC-DC52) for this camera that attaches over the built-in zoom lens. It extends your field of view to a healthy film-camera equivalent 24mm lens. Cool! In fact, many digital point and shoots accept wide-angle lens attachments. If you’re interested in this type of shooting, then you’ll want to make sure your next camera has this.

Revisiting Juggernaut Horror Rap Album, Icps Riddlebox

Every genre has its marquee album. You know, the album that made a name for the genre and its performing artists. For horror rap, that album is arguably Riddlebox by ICP. No one will deny the fact that most horror rap heads (now known as Juggalos) were quite familiar with the genre and Insane Clown Posse before ICPs Riddlebox was released, but Riddlebox by ICP is important because its the album that introduced much of the wider world past Juggalos to horror rap.

As Violent J put it back then, Riddlebox was “all the records we had done rolled into one single effort.” That insightful quote says a lotperhaps ICPs Riddlebox was the record that broke them to an audience past Juggalos because they treated it as such going in. Remember, up until this point, horror rap had existed solely as an underground genre situated mostly in the Midwest. Once Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope started treating their horror rap art as a movement that could reach the entire nation, they started to take off.

Whats also interesting about ICPs Riddlebox is the fact that they managed to breakout of their geographical niche while retaining the respect of die hard Juggalos that had been there since the beginning. Often times, artists only blow up because they sell out. That is, they deliberately write songs that appeal to a larger number of people just for the monetary success it will bring them. Not the case with ICPs Riddlebox, and thats why Juggalos respect ICP to this day. Theyve never wavered from their horror rap roots.

ICPs Riddlebox stayed true to the Jokers Card legacy started in their earlier albums. The Jokers Card for Riddlebox by ICP is indeed a jack in the box that determines whether the dead will spend eternity in heaven or hell. Just like past Jokers Cards, this jack in the box aligns with horror rap themes of judgment and retribution. Additionally, as is protocol with all Jokers Cards, if the jack in the box deems youre fit for hell, how it sends you there is graphic to say the least. And Juggalos like imagery of gore.

However, thats not the most important thing that Juggalos like. The thing that unites Juggalos isnt always strictly horror rap, or the violent rhymes in their favorite artists verses. Instead, its a feeling of being misunderstood, just like ICP has been their entire career. I mention this because it came to a head with the release of ICPs Riddlebox.

When the labels showed little interest in promoting Riddlebox by ICP, what did ICP do? They promoted the album themselves independently in local record shops, selling plenty. This example of the band walking the walk transparently with their own album really helped Juggalos solidify their love for horror rap, and its creators.

Regular Photography Business Is Dying. Birthing Of 3d Photography Business!

Of course I understand that the sentence “Regular photography business is dying” in this article title is too strong. The most talented photographers will be in business forever. I used it just to grab your attention to the problem that regular photography business got recently after starting a digital era.

Nowadays photo companies like Canon, Nikon and others are making simple to operate yet more and more advanced photo cameras and lenses, adding more new and useful features to the cameras, improving quality, sensitivity, noise reduction while at the same time cutting the price. Now everybody can buy a Digital SLR photo camera, read a photography book and take pretty good quality photos. Now we have more very affordable ink jet photo printers available in the market that can produce decent prints. There are many powerful photo editing programs for improving the images and making nice looking collages. The entire process of making nice pictures today is not difficult compared to the same process 10 years ago and much less expensive. That is good for the consumer but has put a great pressure on the professional photography business. Today anyone can buy computer, DSLR camera, ink jet photo printer and call themselves a professional photographer.

Today many people prefer to invite a friend to take their wedding photographs rather than use a professional wedding photographer. Those that do use a professional are expecting lower expenses as there are many standard photographers to choose from.Now many people prefer to make the photos by themselves without going to professional photographers and photo studios. That is why we can say that regular photography business is under huge pressure.

Over the years digital photography has become common place and technology has simplified and improved the resulting pictures to the point where even large companies in the photo processing industry are closing down outlets. Those that remain are trying to regain business by offering large format prints or prints on canvas, things the general public cannot produce. Many large stores which do not offer those services do not have photo departments anymore where previously they had big profitable photo departments.

But there is a new way for photo business, the business that is not easy to repeat by everybody and with very attractive product for customers! I am talking about 3D photography business.

3D Photography Business
There are several ways for taking 3D pictures and for most of them the viewer needs some special glasses for seeing 3D effect. That is not convenient for customers and not good for business. However there is one technology that does not need any kind of glasses. That is 3D lenticular technology.

3D lenticular technology is the most suitable for customers because people can hold the picture in the hands and see 3D, without crazy “crossing eyes” or having the special glasses. 3D lenticular pictures have the regular colors like regular photos; they can be in any sizes from small wallet size to big size for putting on a wall, they look like the regular photos just more alive because of the depth. That is why regular people prefer 3D lenticular images compare to other types of 3D pictures.

One of the main problems of making 3D lenticular images is a difficulty of taking the pictures and a very long and labour-consuming process of creating the pictures. For example,even couple years ago we spent at least 2-3 hours before getting an image, because almost all stages of process of creating 3D picture were manual.Of course, it is not acceptable for business because the price of each picture was very high. But luckily now, with modern 3D lenticular technology we can receive 3D lenticular picture in just 10 minutes and even less and most of this time is spending on printing because almost all steps of lenticular technology are automated now, for example, process could be so automated that period of time between triggering 3D camera and starting printing could be as low as 40 seconds. This In-Depth Image System was developed for covering all technology steps in process of producing of 3D lenticular pictures from taking the frames to creating 3D image. This system is easy to operate, for example, we can teach the people how to work with In-Depth Image System and produce 3D lenticular images during 3-4 hours and people do not have to be the experts in photography or in computer.

In-Depth Image System can be successfully used in many different photo market niches. There are:

Portrait photography;

School and graduation photography;

Event photography;

Pets photography;

Advertisement photography and so on.

In-Depth Image System could be used for establishing of 3D photo business because:

In-Depth Image System produces High Quality 3D Lenticular pictures in different sizes;

This system is simple to operate;

In-Depth Image technology of producing 3D lenticular images is easy and rapid;

There is no necessity to have very experienced staff;

The prices on 3D pictures are very competitive with the prices that ask regular photo studios for regular flat pictures;

It is almost impossible to repeat this process by customers themselves, so you will be the only expert in making 3D lenticular pictures in your area;

It is profitable.

Please, look at the real sample picture that were made by In-Depth Image System below. Unfortunately that is impossible to show the depth on that picture because computer monitor can show the flat images only. That is why I created animation GIF file from the frames taken by our system. Originally we shot 12 – 18 frames, so 3D lenticular pictures are much smoother and without any rough jumping like on animation pictures.

Photography Ideas For Artistic Photography Projects — Negative Space

Are you searching for some photography ideas for a photography project? Selecting a photography project that not only creates some great shots but also helps you build your photography skills would be a good idea. There are various skills that one can pick for a project. This article presents one skill, negative space, which you can use for a photography project that can help to develop your skills.

Negative space is essentially a compositional method. When applied correctly, its use can produce beautiful images.

Making Use of Negative Space

There are three main compositional components to a photography image.

Frame: The border that identifies the edges of the image.

Positive Space: The positive space is composed of the objects that the photo is all about. Put simply, it is the main subject of the photograph.

Negative Space: The space between the positive space and the frame.

Any photograph is formed, in various proportions, of the frame, positive space, and negative space. In order to create impressive photos, it is necessary to manage these components.

When composing photographs, some people tend to think mostly in terms of the positive space. Very little consideration is put into the negative space. It is treated almost as an unimportant part of the image. This is not the best way to compose an image! When handled well, the negative space can carry out two important functions. Thus, the negative space can significantly enhance an image:

First: The negative space can serve to define the positive space.

Second: The negative space can encircle the positive space in a way that can make it much more conspicuous.

The negative space can serve to help define the positive space by furnishing detail about the positive space. As one example, a photo may show part of a bridge. Nevertheless, there may be few details that give any suggestions of where the bridge is based. Is the subject that forms the positive space in a crowded, urban park or in a natural environment? We can not tell from the close-up. More information is necessary to better define the positive space. If the photographer were to show some of the landscape around the positive space, this would produce some negative space that would help to better define the positive space.

However, when making use of the negative space in this manner, it is essential that the negative space not overpower the positive space. For this example, the photographer could render the negative space a bit out of focus so that it becomes subservient to the positive space.

The essential point here is that the negative space has to support, not compete with, the positive space. Otherwise, the negative space will not likely enhance the image.

The negative space can also help make the positive space stand out. This is achieved because the negative space helps to manage the attention of a viewer. It does this by helping to direct the viewer’s attention to the positive space. To make the negative space more effective at focusing the attention, all distracting detail must be eliminated from the negative space.

So the moral of the story is that each of these two spaces needs to be very carefully evaluated when an image is composed.

Photography Project

Now, it’s time for your photography project. Why not create a portfolio of images with negative spaces that function to enhance the images?

In Conclusion

This article covered one skill you can use to begin a photography project. However, much more can be learned.
