Adding The Colour Of Magic

Adding The Colour Of Magic…
While most of us have good homes to live in, sometimes things become too common when having a party. Many people come to us looking for new ideas to support the mood of people getting together for having fun.

I once gave an idea of using theatrical backdrops to a couple who were celebrating the out of turn promotion. The impact was immense. The guests were not only impressed by their totally innovative way of decorating their home but also clicked more and more photographs to keep the memory of the day alive.

Backdrop rental is a very stunning way to add volume to any party. Backdrop rentals enhance walls for photo-ops and make the interiors more colourful. You can instantly increase atmosphere of the stage or add a dramatic effect to the back wall of your otherwise formal dining room.

Don?t worry if you are considering a birthday party for your daughter who has just turned sixteen or parents who have completed sixty years of their marriage. Just think of a theme, search internet and browse through hundreds of backdrops that are out there and posted by the owner companies.

Well, what more ? this even gives you a chance of being picky ? if you do not link any these or design, you can even get a backdrop custom made. The only thing you will have to keep in mind is to do it sometime before the date you are actually planning to have the party as the company which will work for you will take at least a week to design that.

And if you work with a studio and have a big production to put on, you wouldn?t get time off from deciding music composition, costume design and rehearsals. This can leave you a very little time to work on set design. Thankfully, there are customized backgrounds that can be used as well placed themed backdrops.

Learning Photography? Don’t Forget Your Camera.


Digital photography has beginners around the world paying for courses and ebooks to learn how to take better photos with their digital cameras. Are they getting what they pay for?

A few years ago, I wrote an ebook to teach beginners the basics of good photography. You know, aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, lighting, composition; the kind of things that are the stock-in-trade of any experienced phogographer. In recent times, I have been amazed at the increasing number of people eager to get their hands on this type of information.

With the internet seemingly taking over the world, and the explosion in availability of books, ebooks and courses on just about every subject, why is it so hard for a new photographer to find out how to use their camera? It's a mystery for the modern age, but I think I may have found the answer.

If a person has a bad experience, especially if that experience cost them hard-earned dollars, they will tell others. And what they are telling me is that they are NOT HAPPY with most of the photography courses and guides on offer.

Many courses and workshops advertising 'digital photography' have little or nothing to do with actual photography. That's right, you can sign up to learn the skills of better photography and not learn one thing about taking better photos.

Instead, what you get is a workshop on digital imaging, or photo editing. How to fix up your bad photos, how to superimpose rainbows and birds into your landscapes and how to remove freckles and pimples from your portraits. How to use software which, in many cases, the customer doesn't have, doesn't want and possibly can't afford.

Are these useful skills? Of course they are, but they are not photography. At best, they are secondary skills that enhance the creative possibilities of photography, for people who choose to go down that path. This does not include everybody.

The result could be a generation of 'photographers' who know more about fixing up their mistakes on a computer than about taking good photos in the first place.

If a customer pays you to teach them photography, they have a right to expect that they will learn how to use a camera. If they want to learn about computer software, they will buy a different ebook, or sign up to a different course. If you take their money, then sit them in front of a computer for three days, you have not given them what they paid for. If your customer asks for their money back - so they should.

I could take a pessimistic view, and think that some photographers have become so lazy, so unskilled, that they really believe digital manipulation is more important to photography than skill with a camera. I prefer to think that the customers I have spoken to have just been the victims of misunderstandings and poorly worded advertising.

Whichever is the case, customers beware! Before you hand over your credit card, find out exactly what you are signing up for. If you want to learn to be a better photographer, make sure the course, workshop, or ebook is about using your camera, not just a computer. If software is a component of the course, terrific - you are getting a well rounded look at the world of photography. If it is the only component, shop around; there are still people out there who want to teach what you want to learn.
