#Photography: What Makes Photographs To Stand Out?

Art is really subjective that there surely is no correct answer to this question. But there are a few things that can allow you to analyze a photograph. I find it interesting that the majority of people can tell the difference between a typical and a good photo and select the ‘better'one, nevertheless they struggle to articulate why. Here are some of these harder-to-explain things that might draw them toward the ‘better'picture. I'm sure there's additional things I've missed - we never stop learning:

#Musicproduction: Tips To Get A Warm Sounding Mix

Possibly one of the very most sought-after sounds in music, a hot mix is everything for some people. Beautiful, powerful low-end in conjunction with full mids and gentle highs. A hot mix sounds powerful without having to be abrasive. So just how do we go about getting a warm mix? Have a look at these four tips below and see if you can't arrive the temperature along with your productions.


Although often quite costly technology, tubes really are likely to offer so much towards a hot mix. As a rule, steer clear of digital plugins that claim to supply analogue tube tone. This isn't to say that they are bad at doing other items but you just cannot add tube warmth without physical tubes. The method of electrical signal starting to warm up actual tubes is unquestionably a non-linear phenomenon that can't be matched with a plug-in.

#Photography: Strong Photos Tell Stories - What's Behind?

“An image paints one thousand words”: this means that what you can see in a single image would take many words to explain the contents, the action, the emotion, what it's about, and so on. It's visual storytelling. One powerful picture can evoke an instant response and connection. It allows visitors to shape what they see, tell its story for them inside their words.
Consider some of the very most iconic images in history – the sailor kissing the girl in a packed street by Alfred Eisenstaedt, the Migrant Mother holding her children through the depression by Dorothea Lange, Clearing Winter Storm by Ansel Adams. They are all powerful images that tell a story with impact.

We've all been there; in a fresh country, a fresh city or just a fresh section of your local town. Camera in hand, you shoot and shoot and shoot as your memory card never generally seems to fill up. It's thrilling and you don't want to waste an instant while there is so much to capture. But what if putting your camera down, even simply for 20 minutes, can allow you to take better photos?

I don't mean leave it unattended. But I really do mean use it away or leave it behind as you get a walk in your brand-new environment.

#Photography: Tips For Black & White Portrait Photos

You will find no hiding places in a dark and white portrait. With no distraction from color, the physical characteristics of the topic are revealed. Monochrome exposes intimate details such as for example bone structure, texture, and expression to a much greater level than an equivalent color image. This informative article can help you make the most of the medium and show how to take creative portraits employing a home studio setup.

Successfully capturing a quirky look or expression provides viewer an immediate insight into the subject's world and personality. Black and white photographs create vulnerability, and when we have the ability to see just who the topic is through the image captured, then this can be a sign of a winning portrait. Although this all sounds a little serious, black and white doesn't need to be used only to record austerity. Subtle changes of lighting, like, can transform the mood to romantic, sultry, as well as comical. Black and white is an extremely versatile medium.

#Musicproduction: Double Tracking To Brush Up Vocals

It's an easy task to believe that precisely what you are able to do creatively in recording and production requires a plug-in.

So for a thin-sounding vocal, you can add EQ, compression, delay, reverb, or harmonic enhancement using some of the several hundred plug-ins that can be found in your DAW.

OK maybe I exaggerate the amount of plug-ins anyone has, but who nowadays doesn't have masses more plug-ins than they require? Or simply understand how to use.

You soar above red sand, hypnotize
Vanish in rising wind, all sorrows past
Simply trust your runny eyes

For this informative article, I want to consider just a single human voice. Which makes things simple, or does it?

Question: Just how many microphones do you want to record an individual human voice? Only one.

For classical music you may want to use more microphones to recapture the ambience of the recording space, but also for every other sort of recording then you definitely only need one microphone for an individual human voice.

#Photography: Brush Up Your Photos Qith Bokeh Effect

We've all heard of “bokeh,” though many of us remain insecure about how to pronounce the word. We fawn over great bokeh in well known images, drool over lenses that produce beautiful, smooth bokeh, and scorn lenses that produce “bad” bokeh. However, even the best bokeh doesn't guarantee an image's success—that largely depends upon the photo's composition and other related technical factors.

The impact on your music by thinking live, let us say DJing

The music that I'm working on often originates from moments that I experienced while DJing. Understanding that special centre of gravity that pulls the rhythms, melodies, dancing and feelings together is very helpful while producing in the studio. The more I listen and play, the higher I reach knowing what I'm really trying to find in my own productions. It generates producing far more natural afterwards. I'm also learning a lot about the importance of delivery. The creativity behind DJing is the same creativity behind arranging a track. The challenge is determining how to create different people alongside the same sounds and having it understood, appreciated and enjoyed. The more I listen and play, the higher I reach knowing what I'm really trying to find in my own productions. It generates producing far more natural afterwards.

The most straightforward answer compared to that question would be: "Obtaining the camera with you all the time". Which obvious as it may sound is not necessarily the absolute most easy thing to do.

If you're driving, throwing your gear bag on the trunk seat is easy. But imagine if you're simply walking? Then carrying a bulky backpack high in lenses and gear is nearly funny. And should you use your iPhone? No. I'm using my iPhone for doing panoramas but otherwise a phone is not really a camera, it is a phone.

Of course phone manufacturers will argue that the cameras in the phones are another big thing after internet stocks but... they aren't. I use a phone only for quick shots, nothing special. Maybe good enough for a quick social media posting, throwing something out like fire and forget.

#Musicproduction: Mastering Tips

EQing The Master

Much like any master bus processing, it's more often than not simpler to be subtle. Although many of us don't have use of the EQ3 with its Air Band, we are able to use subtle boosts in the 10-20 kHz range on our EQ plug-ins to incorporate a bit of overall brightness. But go easy, that you don't want to create it harsh.

As it pertains to low-end problems, you're better off addressing them on the individual track level, rather than trying to repair them on the master bus EQ. Remember, it's processing the whole mix, so when you might achieve a reduced amount of the bass level by cutting in the low- frequency range, you're planning to impact all the instruments and voices. You're better off EQing the individual tracks which are causing the bass issues.

#Photography: Composing A Good Photo

With the advent of the cell phone and tablet, everyone appears to be taking photographs. And all many individuals want is a record of a vacation or family event or even a special moment in their lives to talk about making use of their friends and perhaps to look at some years later when it will take back a fond memory of times past.

Many of us, however, wish to take our photography one step further and turn it into an interest which we could develop and improve. So we dispense with your point and shoot cameras and stop using our phones and purchase reasonably decent cameras. Personally, although I had been taking pictures for almost 50 years, I only took it up as a significant hobby in 2010 when I purchased a Panasonic DMC-FZ38 just before visiting Kenya on my first safari.

Must be Satan's empire, more or less
A pleasant path to happiness, that's for sure

Noone can hear your call for help at all
Organ in full blast and monks start to hum
Sweating I can still hear my number called

#Songwriting: Five Types Of Rhymes In Your Lyrics

Why we use rhymes

The main difference between prose and song lyrics is that lyrics have a rhythm to the lines and usually include rhymes. Why do we use rhymes in songs? Rhymes help emphasize the rhythm of your lyrics. They let's achieve an expression of tension that moves into resolution. Once you establish a rhyme scheme, your listeners will come to expect those rhyming patterns to keep, and if they do, they'll give your audience that sense of "Ah, I felt it absolutely was coming. Glad it resolved!"

MIDEM - 5 - 8 June 2018

Highlights this year was interview with Scooter Braun, big British stand, interviews with Kenya, MusicInAfrica.net, a developer from Indonesia and a company from Taiwan.

Kenya has more than safari, elephants andlions. Besides a coffee production, what is interesting for Vienna, there is a music scene in Kenya. I talked to an official from Keyan stand.

Music in Africa, a foundation supported by Siemens, is a growing network connecting musicians from 33 countries in Africa. Interesting that arabian countries in the north are not included. I spoke with a representative.

Indonesia has more than 17,000 islands. I spoke with a young developer about his product, a software solution to process guitar sound - for studio and live.

Again I saw the Taiwan based company Spinbox. They were present at Midem last year. I spoke with the CEO.

There were events on up to seven locations at Midem. Interesting. About new developments, technologies and trends in global music business.

Evening Show

Every evening bands and DJs from Africa, UK, Brazil, Taiwan performed. On thursday the first Midem Music Arward was received by Scooter Braun - “Hall of Fame” Award.

The goal of this informative article would be to familiarize you with five of the very common vocal effects, how they work, and what they appear to be in action. If you're an artist, you'll definitely hear them when working in the studio. And if you've just started home recording, you'll, in the event that you haven't already, encounter them in your DAW.
  1. Reverb

    The holy grail of vocal effects, reverb is utilized on most vocal tracks to create a sense of space. We don't usually consider it in the moment, but we hear reverb around people the time.
