September DDsSeptember was a particularly incredible month with some exquisite nature & portraits DD's. Not only did we see some stunning landscape and waterscape shots this month, but I feel it was particularly strong in the Animals category.... a dog, some felines, birds, a chameleon, a fox, wild pigs, raccoon, and even a red panda. I hope you all enjoyed this month's round-up and I look forward to seeing what October has in store. Keep sending me your suggestions.September DDs2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Defeating the Devil's Strategies
All of us make tracks through the valley of failure. Then the key question is, What we will do next? Sadly, many believers who stumble give up a vibrant kingdom-serving life for a defeated existence. But failure can also be a chance for a new beginning of living in Christ's strength.
In pride, Peter thought his faith was the strongest of all the disciples' and swore that even if the others left Jesus, he never would (Mark 14:29). Yet when the time of testing came, he denied even knowing Christ--and did so three times (Matt. 26:69-75). Satan hoped the disciple would be so wounded by his own disloy

Child labour 5by GMBAkash
Child labour is not a new issue in Bangladesh, as children remain here one of the most vulnerable groups living under threats of hunger, illiteracy, displacement, exploitation, trafficking, physical and mental abuse. Although the issue of child labor has always been discussed, there is hardly any remarkable progress even in terms of mitigation
17.5 percent of total children of the 5-15 age group are engaged in economic activities. Many of these children are engaged in various hazardous occupations in manufacturing factories. Factory owners prefer to employ children as they could pay them less and also able to keep their factories free from trade unionism. A child labour gets taka 400 to 700 ( U$ 5 to U$ 8) per month, while an adult worker earns up to taka 5000 (U$ 61) per

Project Educate: Permission to Photograph People Permission to Photograph PeopleProject Educate: Permission to Photograph People3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's a tough topic and one that most of us like to shy away from rather than embrace, but the honest truth is that the shots of people that you get - the best kind - are the ones that are candid, journalistic or spontaneous. That usually means asking permission afterwards, or not asking permission at all - which can appear quite odd, to some. One of my biggest concerns and anxieties is having my camera out in public. I recently went to a beach, of all places, and was shooting the coastline when a horrible feeling crept over me and I realised that there were lots of people around and that I was invading, a little bit, on their privacy. These guidelines are useful for shooting on the street, at public gatherings and events and at more formal occasions such as weddings.
If the person is going to be the main subject of your photo - then it's kind to ask permission, get perm

Project Educate: Classic Portrait PhotographyClassic Portraits are Photographs of people in traditional pose. These are often formal, refined and restrained in style. As you will see within the Gallery they often involve a plain and simple background which is a popular feature of Classic Portraiture. One of the most notable things within the Classic Portrait Photography Gallery is that there are a lot of art nudes. This actually occurs across the board with People & Portraits and I cannot stress enough - that if your work features nudity, it belongs within the artistic nude gallery!Project Educate: Classic Portrait Photography3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Conversion to black and white with concentration on bringing out tones and shadows creates that timeless classic look and is often favoured by the elite artists that submit to the People & Portraits - Classic Gallery.
