Photo Contest

Since its Christmas time we are going to make this one a Christmas theme. 1-2 pictures of Christmas at a different angle. Use perspective to show Christmas. I don't just want a picture of a tree or some lights. Maybe some close ups or looking through a tree. The key is interesting Perspective. Deadline Monday Dec 17th. Since this is Christmas the winner will get a gift and I will let my wife wrap it so it looks good. 
The picture above is a great example from Ashley and if she submits this the bar for this challenge will be set high.

This is COOL!

Silver Brickwall LEGO Ring
We love LEGOs, and in honor of their recent 75th anniversary, we thought we'd mention this Silver Brickwall LEGO Ring ($80). The sterling silver ring features the familiar 2x2 LEGO pattern, and comes with six different color pieces to snap to the ring, adding versatility to an already cool package. (Thanks Uncrate)

Top 10 Mac OS X tweaks

This is for all the Mac fans out there. Sorry if you are reading this and don't have a Mac maybe some day you too can have a computer that doesn't suck!

Check out this link to Lifehacker they have some great ideas

Mac OS X is a great operating system out of the box, but a few simple customizations can make it even better. OS X ships with some odd and sometimes inconvenient default settings, and it's got a few nifty little perks for power users who enable them, no third-party software required

Bits and Pieces

No easy way to explain this so above is an example of our next project. Due date Sunday April 8th. For this one I did it the old fashioned way. Real film, Dark room, Scissors and glue. The idea is to take allot of Little pictures and piece them together. This can be done by printing them as a contact sheet putting them all together and taking a picture, or for the more computer literate of us this can be done in Photoshop.
I had a friend at ASU that did this with his bike and a copy machine. He then put the life size picture of his beloved bike on the wall. It was pretty cool at the time.

How to Make a Killer Photo using 8 Simple Composition Rules

I have been trying to teach Kristy about this but she doesn't like me teaching her so here you go.

Rule of Thirds
This “rule” applies for everything: landscape, macro and portraits, but exception would be the classic portrait. This means that instead of placing the subject (main focus of interest) in the centre of the frame put it on an intersection of the thirds. For me it is much simple to consider this “mind drawing” where my subject is placed either in point 1 or 2 or 3 or 4:

Sometimes cropping a subject to make the viewer focus on some specific detail is an extremely good idea. But other times, when it’s not about details, it’s good to have the entire subject inside the picture and don’t take a shoot as if the subject is just about to leave, but rather just about to come if it is not standing. If you are in hurry or not so sure about what you want and you also got a high megapixel camera, you can afford thinking about cropping after shooting in the post-editing process. Otherwise, get closer and if getting closer will scare away your subject (hehe) then use your zoom.

To see the rest check out the link below.
