    Online Portfolios for photographers”>Never rewrite anything you can digitize. If you’ve ever been tasked with copying a full whiteboard after an intense brainstorming session, you know what I mean.

    You’ve just finished participating in one of the most amazing brainstorming sessions of your career. The massive whiteboard, which covers an entire wall of the conference room, is covered with words, arrows, and diagrams. You’re about to rush from the room to begin putting these plans into action when your boss says to you, “Robertson! Would you please copy down these notes and circulate them to everyone who attended the meeting?”

    Copy those notes?! Not even Leonardo Da Vinci could reproduce those drawings. Suddenly, an air of calm comes over you as you recall “Secrets of Whiteboard Photography” from Digital Photography Hacks. You pull your digital camera out from your backpack and go to work. Why rewrite something that’s already been written, when you can photograph it, save it as a .jpg file, and circulate it to anyone with a browser on their computer?

    This hack will make more sense to you if you first understand how a camera sees the world. Most cameras are calibrated for capturing blue skies, green grass, and other middle tones. And, more often than not, your camera will try to convert anything on the extreme end of the exposure scale to those same middle tones. So the black cat becomes gray and the whiteboard becomes a murky beige color. So, job number one is to find your exposure compensation adjustment and set it to +1. That will tell your camera to overexpose the subject and make the whiteboard white, not gray. Then, turn up the room lights, open the shades, and turn off your camera’s built-in flash. Those little strobes might be fine for blinding your best friend at her birthday party, but they’re not so good for shooting whiteboards? unless, that is, you don’t care about reading the writing. Flashes tend to nuke white shiny surfaces.

    Louis Daguerre of Paris, France can be said to be the Father of Commercial Photography. His daguerreotype of processing an image captured from then -advanced-technology- camera obscura was the pivotal development in the history of photography.

    Although his first photograph with a human person in 1838 was an -accidental shot- which took more than 10 minutes of exposure in order for the image to be captured into his camera, it paved the way to the commercialization of photography. It created a demand for photographic portraiture in the middle classes which could not be sufficiently served by then current and expensive method of oil painting.

    Commerce and industry opened its doors to photography. From its initial commercial visage of portraiture, photography evolved into other mercantile forms and vehicles, where it picked up payment for the -images- depicted rather than attach value to the photographs as -works of art-. Among the many forms and industry uses of photography, the following are mainstream applications:

    Advertising photography that visually promotes products and services Fashion and glamour, usually employing models that enhance the products Crime scene photography as tools that offer clues and proofs to theories that help solve crimes and mysteries Still life photography depicting wonders that only photographs can convey Food photography, an area where food palatability is scrumptiously enhanced Editorial photography and photojournalism that successfully enhance and sensationalise news and stories Portrait and wedding photography that renders romanticism and sentimentality Landscape photography that serves to invigorate the tired soul Wildlife photography bringing realism to flora and fauna in their natural environments Paparazzi photography of freelance practitioners preying on usually -unsanctioned and unsolicited- personal photographs of celebrities, politicians, the prominent and wealthy that make juicy gossip items in prestigious publications

    Aside from the top-class line of photography professions enumerated above, other businesses allied or related to photography have been an industry backbone that has contributed much to the economy of many countries, coming in different forms and modes:

    Manufacture of equipment, accessories, consumables, parts and tools Sales and servicing of equipment, accessories and tools Photography and videography studios and services Image and photo printing and reproduction Printing media manufacture, sales and distribution Archiving and storage of document and photo images

    There is also an opportunity area for photographs of national heritage import and/or phenomenal works of art such as 99 Cent II Diptychon, dubbed as -the most expensive photograph in the world- when it was auctioned for US$3.34 million at Sotheby’s on February 7, 2007.

  • Instrumental Beats A New Production Style

    Comments Off on Instrumental Beats A New Production Style
    February 25, 2018 /  Music and Movie

    When you listen to commercial radio today, instrumental beats are likely to be the sound coming out of the speakers. For a while, urban music has been at a stand-still as far as production goes. Just recently, trap music has emerged as a mainstream genre. While it’s roots date back to the early 2000s, the genre is just now making it’s mark in the music industry.

    Trap beats symbolize the struggle, the pain, and the victory in life in general. Producers all over are tapping into this new way of producing. These instrumentals have an authoritative presence and beg for attention. Dope trap beats are now being used in conjunction with traditional sounds in major R&B productions. With the new sound being so sought-after, the market has completely opened up for aspiring producers. There is now a demand that was almost non-existent before. So while economists claim that we are in a bad economy, these producers are cashing out with no problems.

    Artists to the likes of 2Chainz, Young Scooter, and Trinidad James are only part of the clientele listing for these producers. Moreover, the artists who aspire to be like these major artists are a huge addition to that list. Old-head producers are now playing catch-up with the new wave of sounds coming in. You have new producers coming out faster than others who have been trying to make it for over 5 years, simply because they are making dope trap beats.

    The competition in production is much stiffer than it has ever been since the emergence of this new sound. Everyone figures that he can make a lot of money by producing it. It is possible; they just have to do it the right way. Creating sounds that captures souls more fiercely is where trap music is heading. You have to be able to make heads bounce; make people mad, the whole nine. I do not see these types of beats going anywhere any time soon.

    Taking in consideration that this genre is so closely related to Hip-Hop, some of thrown the style off as just another version of Hip-Hop. In reality, if you ask a Hip-Hop mogul what it is, he would get mad that you even made a comparison. Authentic Hip-Hop is a far-cry from trap music. It is not only a spin off of it, but a spin with a twist. Trap music is made more for the clubs and partying. Anytime a genre of music comes out that can make people dance and have fun, it is here to stay. Producers are in for a good treat with trap music being so fairly new to the general public. Dope trap instrumentals will run the radio for the next several years.

  • Traditional Hebrew Musical Instruments

    Music is a great form of communication; it facilitates religious ceremonies, and celebrates victorious battles. Jubal was the inventor of Hebrew musical instruments. The whole Hebrew history and literature are proving that the Hebrews are really committed to cultivate music. We all remember that after the passage of the Red Sea, Moses and his people sang their song of happiness and freedom.

    The time of David and Solomon is the golden age of Hebrew music; it is systematically cultivated and it is the main part of training in schools. Hebrew musical instruments are also used in their private life. Among the Hebrew musical instruments, an important place is given to stringed instruments, such as the kinnor – a kind or farp, the nebel – a lyre, the sabbeka- a lute. Among the wind instruments, we mention the ugab – a syrinx, the qeren – a horn, the shophar – a trumpet, the hafsoserah – a trumpet, the halil – a flute, the sumponyah – a bagpipe. The Hebrew musical instruments from the percussion category are the toph – a drum, the paamon – the bells, the tseltselim – cymbals, the mennan’im – cornets, the shalishim – triangles.

    Old Hebrew musical instruments
    The bells were very important Hebrew musical instruments; they were attached to the hem of the high priest’s ephod. The cornet is named shophar in Hebrew because of its brightness and its clear sound. Cymbals are also very popular Hebrew musical instruments; two pieces of brass, one for each hand, are clashed together to produce a really loud sound. The dulcimer is a Hebrew musical instrument; it is a kind of lute. The flute is composed of a number of pipes; it is common also among other people from Asia.

    The harp (kinnor in Hebrew) is the national musical instrument of the Hebrews; the harp was invented by Jubal and is used as accompaniment to Hebrew songs such as praise to God. The horn is not only a Hebrew musical instrument; it is also used metaphorically for strength and honor, as emblems or power. The organ is a wind Hebrew musical instrument, similar to the Pan’s pipe.

    The psaltery is another Hebrew musical instrument, a king of lyre, with twelve strings. The tabret is a one-sided drum, a kind of tambourine; the timbrel is also a small drum or a tambourine. Trumpets are a large variety of forms, and are made in different materials. Silver trumpets are specific Hebrew musical instruments, and are used by the highest priests to announce a war or a festival.

    There are hundreds of different kinds of musical instruments in the world. Almost every country has its own traditional music and musical instruments that have been developed over the centuries. Each musical instrument has its own melody, pitch, rhythm, timbre, loudness, and duration, as well as the notes and chords.

    Musical instruments can be classified on the basis of the kind of instrument: chordophones (strings), aerophones (woodwinds and brasses), idiophones (percussion), and membranophones (drums). Stringed instruments or chordophones are those that produce sounds when a string is plucked or strummed. The kind of sound produced depends on the mass of the string, length of the vibrating portion of the string, tension in the string, and the point at which the string is strummed apart from the kind of resonating cavity in the instrument. Viola, violin, cello, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, harp, lute, banjo, balalaika, koto, ukulele, etc. are some of the string instruments.

    Woodwinds and brasses generate music when air enters the instrument by blowing. This air vibrates inside the instrument in a particular frequency, thus producing sound. The kind of music depends on the method of tone production, the shape of the instrument, the length of the column of air in addition to the construction of the instrument. Flute, piccolo, clarinet, oboe, horn, mouth organ, saxophone, and bassoon are some of the winds instruments, while the French horn, tuba, trumpet, and trombone are brass instruments.

    Percussion instruments produce sounds when struck. The size of the instrument along with the shape of the resonating cavity determines the sound produced. Some percussion musical instruments include the cymbals, the snare drum, bells, gong chime, xylophone, the bass drum, maracas, castanet and the timpani.

    Drums include the goblet drums, the barrel drum, the frame drum, the tambourine, and the friction drum. Other kinds of musical instruments are the piano, keyboards, organ, harpsichord, and the Glockenspiel. Each of these musical instruments has sub-categories within them. Musical instruments can also be categorized on the basis of their playing levelssome are suitable for all kinds of players while some are meant only for beginners.

    Pictures of musical instruments can be found at most music stores that sell musical instruments. Since musical instruments are selected based on the model, it is not possible to have all the models in the store. Hence, most dealers have pictures of some instruments to select from. Pictures are also found in advertisements and classifieds. There are several websites that have attractive and colorful pictures of musical instruments. They also feature exhaustive information about the product. Most of the pictures can also be downloaded on the computer, or they can be viewed online. Having these pictures helps the buyer to make a better choice when ordering the instrument. Pictures are especially useful for locating a particular kind or rare kinds of musical instruments.
