Available Light Portrait Photography

Windows

Daylight from a window provides a soft light, and high degree of contrast/modelling. Windows that face the sun are generally not very satisfactory because the light can vary in strength from moment to moment. Direct sunlight will also cast strong shadows from window frames, leaded panes, etc.

The size of the window affects the quality of the light. A small widow can act like a soft spotlight, while a large window provides a more diffused light like a floodlight. Similarly, the proximity of the subject to the widow will affect how they are illuminated. The closer they are, the softer and more even the lighting will be.

Your aim should be to place the subject so that the light falls on their front, and not behind them. The subject should be facing roughly parallel to the window. They can turn to look through the window, but should not be looking directly out of the window, nor into the room and away from the light.

The bottom of a large (e.g. floor length) window can easily be masked-off (newspaper and tape will do) so that the light falls from above at an angle of between 30 and 45 (see the basic principles of lighting).

The light from a single widow will often produce too much contrast, and a “fill-in” light is usually required.

Fill-in illumination

Fill-in illumination should not be brigher than the main light source.

A white reflector is often the simplest way to provide fill-in illumination. A large piece of white card works well, and is easy enough to obtain if you keep your eyes open for such things (or you can buy a sheet of white mount board). The aim is to use this to reflect or bounce light from the window back on to the subject. You should be able to clearly see the effect of the reflected light as the reflector is repositioned.

The closer the reflector is to the subject, the stronger the reflected light will be, but the intensity of the bounced light will always be less than that of the main light source.

Another option is to use an on-camera flash. This is a little more tricky to get right as the level of fill-in achieved can only be observed once the picture has been taken. If the level of illumination provided by the flash is greater than that from the window, it then becomes the main light source, and modelling is lost. The strength of a flash can be reduced by sticking layers of tissue over it.

Normally, the position of the fill-in light will be on or near to the axis of the camera. This makes an on-camera flash ideal when used as a fill-in. The position of a card reflector should similarly be such that it bounces light on to the subject along the axis of the camera.

Don’t expect to get the lighting right first time. Some experimentation will be necessary, but the results that can be obtained should make the effort worthwhile.

Two windows

If there are two windows, lighting becomes much easier, because there will be a greater amount of ambient light, but you may still need to use a fill-in, and mask-off the main window.

If the two windows are on adjacent walls, lighting can be even easier, since one window can function as the main light source, and the other as the fill-in. The aim is to place the subject nearer to one window than the other, and adjust their position as necessary to achieve the required balance between the two light sources.

Backgrounds

Backgrounds will always come out much darker when using the available light from a window. Due to the significant fall-off in the level of illumination, the further away the background is, the darker it will appear. The background will also reveal whether the light from an on-camera fill-in flash is too strong. You should not be able to see a shadows cast by the flash. If you can, the flash is probably too bright.

Shooting outdoors

When taking portrait shots outdoors, we have far less direct control over the available light. However the principle of fill-in illumination still applies. When daylight cast heavy shadows, these can be reduced by use of a reflective surface to bounce light, or an on-camera flash.

Outdoors, the use of flash is a better option, as the main light source will usually be far brighter than the flash light, and it can be extremely impractical to carry a large sheet of mount board with you.

Footnote: There are circumstances when these “rules” may be broken, but the intention of this article is to convey simple guidelines applicable to most situations.

Satellite Radio Transmissions Can Be A Real Lifesaver!

Many people are in agreement that space might just be the final frontier. We have filled up all of the other frontiers at our disposal with waste and waste by-products that have polluted the land and streams with our debris. Now it is time to consider the benefits of satellite radio transmissions in space because the air waves on Earth has become increasingly crowded.

The benefits of satellite radio transmissions from space allow us to be rescued when we are stranded in the middle of nowhere, or the benefits achieved from satellite radio transmissions can be thoroughly appreciated when the signals are used to unlock the door of our automobiles no matter where it is located in the world.

In a matter of seconds, the benefits of satellite radio transmissions will provide us with point to point directions and send the driver a visual map through devices that also incorporate virtual assistants to guide us on our way. While the benefits of satellite radio transmission allow us to live a better quality of life, they are also in place to provide us with various sorts of entertainment too.

The benefits of satellite radio transmissions may not be appreciated by everyone in the world. Some moral majority minded groups do not appreciate the raunchy programming that is provided through satellite radio networks. Some of the radio talk show hosts were found unsuitable for the radio programming schedules on Earth so they negotiated great salaries and felt that they had to be transferred to a more filtered audience that pays for the right to hear the obscenities and lewd suggestive talk about sex and anything else that they can think of.

Some people are honest in their pursuit to enjoy all of the benefits of satellite radio transmissions. Some people simply have a passion to listen to their favorite style of music without interruption. These radio listeners also enjoy the clarity of the sounds that satellite radio transmissions from space provide them in all of the music station selections that they might select to listen to on any given day.

Many companies have jumped on the bandwagon and have expanded the benefits of satellite radio transmission to allow people the opportunity carry portable satellite radio transmitters with them to use in any vehicle that they drive. The quality of the signal is one of the benefits of satellite radio transmissions from space that radio stations on the ground can not compete with because there is no static to be heard on any of the radio programs that are transmitted using a satellite radio receiver.

homies By Icp Proves Horror Rap Is Juggalo Family Music

Who was you with when you got tattoos?
Who was you tripping with when you did them mushrooms?
Who the f*ck threw up all over your car?
And then felt worse then you about that shit in the morning? (Friends ya’ll)

Who loans ya money, homie?
Who owes ya cash?
Who taught you how to use the bong for the grass?
I don’t know much but I gotta assume
When ya hit ya first neden, ya homies was in the room

These are the lyrics to “Homies” by ICP. This song has neared anthem status for those within the Juggalo Family, but more importantly, “Homies” by ICP acts as insurmountable evidence that horror rap can bring people together. Many anti-horror rap crusaders out there have long accused horror rap of being an overly violent, misogynistic genre of music that does nothing but turn youth against their parents, or existing fans against the rest of the public.

As “Homies” by ICP lyrics demonstrate above, nothing could be further from the truth.

But its not just songs like “Homies” by ICP that perpetuate the Juggalo family atmosphere among horror rap fans. Its the people and horror raps over-arching message that makes Juggalo and family go together like horror rap and Psychopathic Records.

ICPs Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, unarguably the godfathers of horror rap music, have always viewed themselves, for better or worse, as misfits. They dont fit in with mainstream society, and would have it no other way. This is where horror rap comes in.

Instead of moping about their status or feelings toward the public at large, the guys write songs like “Homies” by ICP to show a welcoming mentality towards other horror rap heads who feel the exact same way they do.

Has this strategy worked? To say the least, yes. Songs like “Homies” by ICP and the bands general attitude towards the Juggalo family have created an artist-fan bond so strong that ICP could retire now and never have to work again if they wanted to.

The scenarios put forth in “Homies” by ICP, as evident in the lyrics to “Homies” by ICP above, are perfect examples of this kind of Juggalo family love. Aside from their shared love of horror rap, those within the Juggalo family are just as strongly connected as stereotypically bonded relationships, like frat brothers or father-son, if not stronger.

Juggalo family members loan each other money, get too drunk, talk about girls (or boys for the Juggalette members of the Juggalo family) , etc.

So next time you think that horror rap only deals with themes of suicide, murder, Satanism, or other non-sense violence, remember “Homies” by ICP and the Juggalo family bonds! It they werent real, the Juggalo family and all other homies of ICP would have long since disbanded.

Jewellery Making Tv Show

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number of carats in a diamond.” – Mae West

The word jewellery itself is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicized from the old French “jouel”, and beyond that, to the Latin word “jocale”, meaning plaything. Jewellery design is the art or profession of creating, crafting, fabricating or rendering designs for Jewellery. This is an ancient practice of the goldsmith or metalworker that evolved to a billion-dollar industry with the odyssey from ancient cultures into the machine age.

One of the first to start jewellery making were the peoples of the Indus Valley Civilization. By as early as 1500 BC, the people of the Indus Valley were creating gold earrings and necklaces, bead necklaces, and metallic bangles. Jewellery also found great status with India”s royalty. In fact it was so powerful, that certain laws were established by some rulers which limited wearing of certain jewellery types only to royalty. India was also the first country to mine diamonds, with some mines dating back to 296 BC. The journey of the jewellery industry over the centuries has indeed been an incredible one”

According to a 2007 KPMG study, the largest jewellery market is the United States with a market share of 30.8%. Japan, India, China, and the Middle East each have 8-9%, and Italy with 5%. The authors of the study predict a dramatic change in the market shares by 2015, where USA’s market share will drop to 25% and China and India’s will increase to 13%.
