Designer food

Designer food is only a solution out of the food crisis where you eat heavy-metal laden, chemical food. Nobody know how this designer food should taste.

Designerfood ist doch nur der Ausweg aus einer Lebensmittelkrise, wo Schwermetall-belastete, chemikalienverseuchte Speisen verzehrt werden. Beim Designerfood weiß ja keiner, wie es richtigerweise schmecken sollte.

#Photography: How to Make a Double Exposure

It's also possible with a digital camera.
ViennaCC

Multiple exposure is a technique that many film photographers discovered by complete accident – either the camera broke and the film didn’t advance, or they shot the same roll twice by mistake. Once you realize how two (or more) frames blend together, you start to realize the almost limitless experimental possibilities allowed by this technique. In this video, photographer Sara Byrne describes how she creates double exposures on her Canon 5D Mk III:

#Photography: How to Use Anchor Colours to Challenge Your Photographic Eye

It is a good thing to break from the norm once in a while, and do something different to challenge your personal photography. Limiting yourself to a few rules could help with this and encourages you to learn something new.
One new thing to try, is to use anchor colours in your photography. An anchor colour could be any colour that does one or more of the following:
  • Dominates the picture
  • Makes the picture interesting
  • Draws the viewer to explore elements in your picture in more depth
  • Emphasizes the subject of your picture
Set yourself a challenge.

#Photography: 3 Easy Techniques You Can Use To Take Better Portraits In The Overhead Sun

To new photographers, it might seem as though the best time to take photos is when the sun is out and cascading warm, bright light down onto the world. The reality is, trying to take photos in the shining midday sun can actually make it more difficult to take a properly exposed photo–in fact, many photographers prefer to shoot on overcast days! The reason is because the sun, especially when it’s overhead during noon hours, tends to cast shadows which rarely do any favors for a nice composition. Whereas, when it’s overcast and cloudy outside, the light will be softer and more appealing. That makes a huge difference when you’re shooting portraits and don’t want dark shadows falling under your subjects eye (or anywhere on the frame for that matter).
Unfortunately, we can’t always wait for a cloudy day to go take photos. Instead, we have to learn how to make the best of what we have to work with–and if you’re dealt a sunny day, that means knowing how to avoid letting unsightly shadows become the star of the show. To help get you on the right track, here’s a few tried and true best practices that can help you do just that.

We all have many different goals when it comes to our passion for photography. A great way to get started is by working on personal and professional photography projects. One simple yet effective way to work on your photography skills is to participate in a 365 Photo Project. Quite simply, a 365, as it is most often called, is a commitment to take a photo a day for 365 days straight. You can get as specific or as general as you like in terms of what you photograph, when you photograph, or even how you photograph. There are no set rules – the only requirement being you must take at least one photo each day, that counts towards your 365.

How to record best - Wie man am besten aufnimmt

Rehearsals are the best. Tell a singer in the studio: "rehearsal for leveling please" He will sing relaxed and cool. Then say: "ok, now serious, I record it". He will sing concentrating and watching every tone. This is what you throw away and take the rehearsal.

Probeaufnahmen sind die besten. Sag dem sänger im Studio, dass er da mal locker das Lied singen soll, nur so zum Einpegeln. Der singt das dann locker und unverkrampft. Dann sagst du: "ok, jetzt ernsthaft, wir nehmen auf". Der bemüht sich verkrampft, schwitzt, konzentriert sich auf jeden einzelnen Ton. Das schmeißt du weg und nimmst letztendlich die Probeaufnahme.
