50 Captivating Slow Shutter Speed Photos | Phototuts+ Using a slow shutter speed allows for a completely different style of photography - from light painting to capturing smooth water effects. This article features a quick introduction to this style of photography, followed by 50 really amazing examples of the technique in action. Hopefully you'll leave feeling inspired! Shooting With a Slow Shutter Speed At the most basic level, you simply need to place your camera on a tripod (or flat surface) then make sure the shutter speed is set to a low value.

Disk Inventory X First rule of marketing It's hardly a secret that photos are often heavily retouched before publication, but it's relatively rare that a source image is available, allowing direct comparison with the final version. Here's a particularly blatant example. The image on the left is a studio photograph of Keira Knightley, taken for use in material promoting her recent film, 'King Arthur'. On the right the same photo is incorporated into a poster. I've slightly blurred the backgrounds, for clarity. I don't know who holds copyright, but I found these images at a fan site after seeing lower-res copies elsewhere. Some have expressed doubt that they really are the same image, or that only the head is the same, superimposed onto a different body. A few changes are uncontroversial: the image has been rotated through 4.3° to improve the overall composition. However, the main changes go beyond 'accentuating'. I'll let others decide on the aesthetics, ethics or even necessity of this manipulation.

How to Create Your First Web Page Note: If you know anything at all about HTML and CSS, don’t bother reading this, it’s a guide for the uninitiated, technophobes, luddites, computer-illiterates, anyone who is more comfortable with a pen and paper than a keyboard and mouse. If making a web page seems like brain surgery to you, then this is the article for you. What you need to know The only prior knowledge I will assume is that you’ve used a computer before, you’re familiar with using a keyboard and a word processor, and you’ve at least seen a website. The Basics When you visit a website (for example the one you’re reading now), you see a page in your web browser (the program you use to access the internet) , containing text, images and maybe some other things like videos, music etc. In order to display a page correctly, the web browser needs to know about the structure of the page, e.g. What HTML Looks Like HTML uses ‘tags’ to identify different parts of a page.
