Photographic Themes and Projects / Re: 2012 -A Montage/Collage/Mosaic of My 12 Best Photos - Have a go with Yours !!« on: May 19, 2013, 07:59:25 AM »
Awww this is an awesome topic! Im doing 3 shoots a day and can hardly be here, May sucks. Lets see if I can do this amd post later
My new flash unity arrived today! just had the unboxing and its one of those occasions where Olympus have been good enough to supply a small bag. I wish they did with Lenses alongside a lens hood! I have a few days on a business trip and will have evenings to try out!try it outside and inside. When outside click mode until it displays ttl hss.
there is still a 300 dollar price difference between the EP 5 with the kit lens, and the E M 5 with the kit lens .ep5 with 14-42 is 1199$
For all out simplicity get the fl600. I can walk u through it in a single post (its very easy to use) and the 1/4000 of a second speed sync means you can use it outdoors in sunlight as fill. It does all kinds of swivel and tilting, its smallish, lightweight, and its plenty powerful for medium-large room.
If we lived nearby, I could turn you into a metz jedi master with the 44, I have those things down like china town

I'm guessing not many have actually read all of the terms and agreements section of Creative Cloud.amazingly scary stuff
Adobe may revoke your right to use that URL for any reason deemed appropriate by Adobe in its sole discretion. , Adobe may permit another User to use the unique URL previously selected by you. - that means the URL YOU created with YOUR name on it. So adobe might for any reason take aURL named after Lisandra Santiago and give it to someone else? what if its my business name? People will search LiOm images and get directed to someone else's crappy stuff?
So you build your business on it. A few years later, Adobe decides they don’t feel like it any more. Tough crap.
6.5 Adobe may modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services or Materials, or any portion thereof, with or without notice. You agree that Adobe shall not be liable to you or anyone else if we do so.
8.2 You agree not to use, or to encourage or permit others to use, the Services to:
(a) Make Available any Material that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, tortious, defamatory, libelous, vulgar, obscene, child-pornographic, lewd, profane, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable; First of all, otherwise objectionable means in other words "whatever we think so" and second, what is vulgar or obscene? What if Im a porn set shooter? (there is such a job), what about profane? this seems all very loose
This is one of my favorites:
Without limiting the foregoing, Adobe shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to remove any of Your Content for any reason (or no reason)
You agree that all terminations for cause shall be made in Adobe’s sole discretion and that Adobe shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your account
and the cherry
any claim or dispute you may have against Adobe must be resolved by a court located in Santa Clara County, California
But the cake taker?
17. Advertising and Your Content.
You agree that Adobe may display advertisements adjacent to Your Content, and you agree that you are not entitled to any compensation.
There is a production company in Rio de Janeiro owned by an ex-pat Brit named 'Green-go films'.the term indeed predates the movie, despite castro taking power mid 50s. The first attemp at an Invasion was in 1898-1902, when the us was taking on spain. And thats when gringo was really born. Where I live was taken over in 1898, and by the early 30s gringo was already around, but few people actually knew what it meant. In the 50s the word took its original meaning during the revolution, where masses of people would chant green go.
Other terms were created in that time, like our spanish word for thrash can, "zafacon" which exists nowhere else in the world and was added to the dictionary but a few years ago. I came from an late 20s program called "save a can", when said real fast it sounds like zafacon.
Spanish DictionaryThe word gringo came from cuba, before the revolution that put castro in power, the US was posed to take over, not in a democratic way mind you. As with all the islands and territories owned by the US (including the one i live in) they were taken by force, literally invaded by military force. In 1999 I met a 112 year old woman who remembered the whole ordeal (on my island, not cuba), and the stories are not nice.
At any rate when it was cuba's turn to be "democratized" the stories were much much worse, so it was fairly easy for Castro to get the people on his side and basically kick the US out. So the universal way to tell the green camouflage wearing soldiers to leave was "green, go!"
The people who werent particularly in the loop on what "green, go" meant all they could assume was that "gringo" was some sort of nickname given to the americans that were invading, and with the years, as with a lot of things that we dont really know what they are, it stuck. Up until I discovered the history behind the word I was brought up to think that a gringo is an north american, simply that, like saying "a redhead" or brunette.
There you go, find that in a history book...
few other gripes from the previewers:
-No interchangeable hand-grips as seen on the E-P3, E-PL3 and E-PL5. This is because Olympus had to place the wifi antenna under the hand-grip area and this meant having to remove solid metal from the structure of the camera's shell where the hand-grip would have been screwed in.
-Only 30 frames per second video recording, which is problematical in some circumstances where artificial lights are used in countries that use 50Hz electrical frequency.
-No silent electronic shutter mode.
-Still no substantial improvement to continuous AF reliability when photographing fast-moving subjects like birds in flight.
-Screen dooes not articulate so that it can face forward (like the E-PL5) and nor is it side-hinged.
-Multi-touch gestures not implemented on touch screen - so no pinch-to-zoom, for example.
Upstream color was first seen at the sundance festival and it earned some very well deserved dues, and now its actually being shown in theaters and has earned a bit over 300,000$.
Oh, It was shot entirely with the GH2
Heres the trailer
