Digital Camera Tricks - on Podcast

http://www.tipsfromthetopfloor.com/

These tricks can actually apply to almost any type of photo shooting.

Image composition:
*reduce the # of subjects - too many competing subjects looks messy
*you will get cleaner images this way
*move in closer to reduce the competition
*blurr the background to reduce the comptition

Go off center:
*take the subject off center
*apply the rule of thirds
--divide the image to three horizontal and three vertical portions

Don't waste time:
*keep the camera on to be ready for that perfect shot

ChinesePod - Learn Mandrin by podcast

http://www.chinesepod.com/podcast/

I am beginning to learn words in Mandrin.
In Mandrin, a baby is pronounced:
bow bow
low high

Low is a low tone, high is a high tone.

To say "baby don't cry"
bow bow bea coo
baby don't cry

bow bow = baby
bea = don't
coo = cry
