Find your camera and see what iso settings you can push your camera to and still retain descent image quality, this is especially important when shooting auroras, a high iso sensitivity means you can push the shutterspeed under the magical 8 seconds to retain some of the movement of the aurora in the image.
(I personally recommend 6 or less)
Preventing STAR TRAILS
Use the rule of 600 to keep stars in the picture from trailing/streaking.
Divide 600 by the true focal lenght of your lens, true is measured by 35mm full frame, so a 30 mm full frame lens would yield this simple equation: 600/30 = 20 second (or less) exposure and stars will look nice.
For cropped sensors you have to time your focal length with 1.5 for Nikon and 1.6 for Canon.
So 16 mm wide angle lens on a Canon cropped sensor would equal 25.6mm true focal lengt (16*1.6) giving this equation: 600/25.6 = 23.43 secon

History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r

A little insight into the history of not only Typography, but also of written language. This article will be far from covering it all, but focuses on highlighting some of the major events and periods in the history of Typography.
From the Greek roots τύπος typos = "impression" and -γραφία -graphia = "writing".
~ 30th Century BC – 200 AD
Or "Script of Nails / Cuneiform Script" is probably the oldest form of written text. This calligraphic form of writing was carved into clay tablets.

This is the basic alphabet used in all Western languages. The Romans based it among others

This short article coupled with Photographing Fireworks will hopefully aim to share some tips and skills at shooting in the dark and how you can make the most of the darker evenings drawing in (for most of us anyway!)
Camera it needs to be capable of long exposure to capture the best of night time photography. Bulb Settings are very important to enable you to hold the shutter open for a long time.
Lenses Wide angle, telephoto a range is best if you have access to it. Wide angle lens are fantastic for capturing those motorway shots from bridges of long distance traffic light trails. Telephoto lens are more useful for captures of the moon and other details.

Collection: Haunted HousesCollection: Haunted Houses4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Coming across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.
“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”

HTML Text Codes, Tips and Tricks for dAAbout a year ago I posted a news article called "Making Your Comments Look Nice". Since then I have found out many other codes that I think would be helpful to share with other deviants who may not know them, or are just looking for some new codes to spiff up their journals and comments! However, I can't say I have ALL of the codes available on deviantART. I just have posted the ones I have heard of. If you have any new ones not listed here, feel free to comment with them.HTML Text Codes, Tips and Tricks for dA5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You can also check out the deviantART FAQ, which has info on these codes as well: :faq104:
To start things off, let's learn how to make these HTML codes work (:
In order to make a code work, you must use this format:
For example, if I put b into the format I showed you, it will come out as .
This will then allow me to type in bold font!
If you only want to put a code onto ONE word, you would have to do this: My name is Bob, nice to meet you.
