I actually have a Canon and I love it, but I'm not opposed to experimenting with different brands and lenses. I'm eying the new Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera. At $60, I think I may be able to make this purchase happen soon!
I spent a couple of hours working on this image just because I am too stubborn to read tutorials or instructions...I have to experiment and learn on my own! It takes longer but I've always been a "hands on" learner and I find it spurs my creativity. Of course it helps if you have a beautiful portrait taken of a beautiful lady. Check us out at deviantArt.
That time again! Don't forget to set your clocks an hour forward tonight!
The modern idea of daylight saving was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson and it was first implemented byGermany and Austria-Hungary starting on 30 April 1916. Many countries have used it at various times since then, most consistently since the energy crises of the 1970s.
Although not punctual in the modern sense, ancient civilizations adjusted daily schedules to the sun more flexibly than modern DST does, often dividing daylight into twelve hours regardless of day length, so that each daylight hour was longer during summer. For example, Roman water clocks had different scales for different months of the year: at Rome's latitude the third hour from sunrise, hora tertia, started by modern standards at 09:02 solar time and lasted 44 minutes at the winter solstice, but at the summer solstice it started at 06:58 and lasted 75 minutes. After ancient times, equal-length civil hours eventually supplanted unequal, so civil time no longer varies by season. Unequal hours are still used in a few traditional settings, such as some Mount Athos monasteries and all Jewish ceremonies. Source: Wikipedia, Read More...
