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

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.

A Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of Typography3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
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.
The Latin Alphabet
~ 800 BC – present
This is the basic alphabet used in all Western languages. The Romans based it among others

Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art SchoolsAs much as I love my school, Academy of Art University, it's not necessary to attend a special art school in order to learn about art. Because of the internet, there are plenty of resources available for those who are self-motivated and eager to learn.Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art Schools2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start with some of the cheapest resources, ending with more expensive ones:
1. Blogs, podcasts and livestreams. Most professional artists keep blogs, and these things are free treasure troves of information. The best blogs don't only show off art, they also give tips about the business of art and introduce you to new resources. Try starting with Muddy Colors, a super informative blog run by several professional painters and sculptors: http://muddycolors.blogspot.com/ For podcasts, check out Chris Oatley's artcast: http://chrisoatley.com/category/podcasts/ Also check out the Awesome Horse Studios livestream: http://www.awesomehorsestudios.com/

Collection: Haunted HousesCollection: Haunted Houses10 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”

“Backbone” as a metaphor has always evoked determination, strength of character, toughness of spirit.
It is also an indicator of alignment, of being on the right track, of having everything in life in functioning order. “Breaking” one’s back means utter devastation, paralysis, losing everything. Being “spineless” is perhaps the worst insult any man would care to ever hear about himself. And then there’s the

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Firstly we have Tonight Alive, which was at the Cockpit on Oct 2nd.
It was their first headline show in England, so I can absolutely promise that I did not skip any lectures to be there. It also meant that it was small and intimate, which was pretty great.
Got there just before Lost Alone, who are from Derby (yay) and who I've seen before supporting MCR. They were pretty good too, and people actually moved during their set this time. Because of the number of people in the room, we actually managed to get right next to the stage for Tonight Alive, so that was good. They were amazing, obviousy, and Jenna had so much energy! Also, the drummer is REALLY hot. Like, REALLY. Jenna kept getting right up in our faces, and she sung some of Five Years directly to me, and I just about cried because that song's meant

She's a whore? She made one mistake that cost her, her reputation.
She's a show off? Her parents abuse her, & she's never heard a praise.
She's loud? She's invisible at home, & she wants to be heard.
She's quiet? She's afraid to speak, because she's afraid to get made fun of.
She's fat? She eats, because she misses her dead brother.
She's a geek? She wants to get into college, so she can support her poverty ridden family.
She doesn't wear Abercrombie? Her parents have been out of work for months, clothes aren't her top priority if she can't ever afford food.
