Photography Troubleshooting: FiltersThis week we bring you another issue of Photography Troubleshooting to hopefully give you some tips and explanations behind how to make use of some photography accessories. If you have a question, query or any thoughts you wish to see discussed just drop us a comment or note!Photography Troubleshooting: Filters3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"The use of filters, how to pick them and examples of situations where they would be helpful...."
Hi moria330, filters are a good way of diversifying your photographic opportunities without spending a great deal of money (though, granted, many of the better quality filters can get to be relatively expensive).
In film photography, filters were used a lot more extensively then they are today thanks to the nature of the medium.
For example colour filters were used for white balance purposes on colour films that were balanced for different light types, so, you could shoot artificial light balanced film under daylight if you had a filter that corrected for it.

News about wolves :(Hello pals,News about wolves :(2 years ago in Personal More Like This
sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te

White wolves - PHOTOS (+ Kiriban VERY close)Hi!White wolves - PHOTOS (+ Kiriban VERY close)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kiriban (744 444) is very close!
And I am busy and totally stressed. I fell asleep - I wanted to sleep only some 10 minutes, but I woke up now, after some 6 hours! it makes me unhappy. I am afraid I will not make it, there are so many pages and I do not remember anything. But I want the graduation exams to be already behind me. My life style is just terrible now two more days and it would kill me

Palette Challenge!!!! Edit: 13 Entries!!!What this is about? Well... it is an art challenge for those who like a challenge, trying something new or just do something they usually won't.Palette Challenge!!!! Edit: 13 Entries!!!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
The theme is... create a piece of visual art, be it digital, 3D or traditional, with ONLY the given five colours. You can of course mix them in any way you like.
Black and white are not allowed, which is part of the challenge.
Here are the colours:
A pale yellow, orange, pinkish purple, blue and a dark violet.
OF COURSE YOU MAY MIX THE COLOURS AND DO TRANSITIONS AND WHATNOT!!!!
I know... difficult colours. That is the point of the challenge. So far I myself have no idea what I will come up with!
When you work traditionally, with what medium soever, try to stick to colours as close as possible to the given ones. It is all about creating something with a VERY limited palette. I will try that myself too.
If you think you can manage a literature piece conveying those colours somehow... feel free to enter too! I would be v

Baby polar foxes were born! + old PHOTOS of kitsHi!Baby polar foxes were born! + old PHOTOS of kits3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just read the info, that baby polar foxes were born in local ZOO!
They are probably still too young to leave the burrow, but I might visit them soon to try to take some photos
Maybe it will kick me to buy a new year ticket - I have not visited the ZOO since my year ticket expired in March but yeah, I will buy it, I think. I definitely visit this ZOO more often than just six times a year

Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)There are some animals and creatures in Japanese mythology. Almost of them are servants of gods. For example, foxes are servants of Inari-shin, who is a god of harvest.Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only two creatures took part in a category of gods -that is to say, wolves and snakes-.
Chichibu had been the most active area of a faith to wolves.
Long time ago, Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto [日本武尊] (who is one of heroes in Japanese mythology) went on an expedition. But when he went through in the deep forest of Chichibu [秩父] mountains, it was in a dense fog and he lost his way. Then, one white wolf appeared in front of him. The white wolf walked a head of him and guided to the outside of the forest. He escaped the deep forest at last.
Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto greatly appreciated a help of a white wolf. He constructed a shrine. The wolf which helped him was joined in a group of gods. The god of the wolf was called "Ooguchi-no-Magami [大口真神]". (It means "a g
About (kinda) stolen names and identitiesAlright, since i got about two notes of people asking me about this matter by now, i feel that this is something that should be briefly addressed.About (kinda) stolen names and identities1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To make it perfectly clear:
NO, i am NOT Culpeo Wolf, the person who was seen on Dr. Phil lately. I don't like wolves, i'm not a furry, i am not American.
But I am:
Culpeo Fox. The one who pretty much brought the word „Culpeo“ to the world wide web (aside from Wikipedia, that is) since most people had no idea this was an actual fox species back then, prompting dozens to actually ask me whether this word/name was made up by myself.
All these others: Culpeo Wolf, Culpeo Rat, TheDarkCulpeo, CulpeoFox1, CulpeoFoxElizabeth and whatever else their names are came after me. I would lie if said that it doesn't irk me in a way. No, i didn't patent the word „Culpeo“, for it is an actual species of fox, as mentioned above and people will choose their names how they feel. And yet...whenever i see another „Culpe

Would you like a photography contest with a big prize in points?
Jeremy (K1ntar) and I have an idea about the subject, but we're curious about your response.

It doesn't have to be something expensive, it can be anything you love and cherish; something that has a great value for you.
What do you think? Is this a good idea and would you participate? Please let me know in comments.

Happy Birthday, Jim Henson Today, in 1936,Happy Birthday, Jim Henson3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
James Maury Henson was born. He is famously know as Jim Henson by the rest of the world. This man was a major influence on me very early on. I grew up, like millions of children, on Muppets and Sesame Street. I remember seeing "The Jim Henson hour", which always ended with "The Storyteller". I was held captive by "Hans my Hegehog", "Fearnot", "The Heartless Giant" and other stories shown there. And I remembered when n he died, a remarkable thing for a girl who couldn't even spell her own name at that point. Jim Henson was god to me then, I KNEW who he was. So, to celebrate this wonderful introvert, here is art I found searching for his name.

Almost small-sized Japanese Dogs became extinct or unified to one breed of Shiba till 20C. But some breeds are still reminding quietly. One is Sanin Shiba[山陰柴], another is Kawakami Ken[川上犬].
They Kawakami Ken have one old tradition. They are descended from Ookami[狼] (Japanese Wolves).
Their fur are a bit longer than general small-sized Japanese Dogs -Shiba-. Colouring of their fur is often the "Wolf Colour", which is a mix of dun, orcher and tawny white as wolv
