One important area I have started to branch out into is photography. 30 Bizarre and Creative Packaging Design Examples - StumbleUpon Inspiration November 1, 2010 One of the things that identifies the image of a product is its packaging. Few elements like striking graphics, attractive colors, and unusual shapes are carefully thought of to come up with packaging design that catches the attention of the consumers.

35 Fantastic HDR Pictures Advertisement Applied carefully, High Dynamic Range-technique (HDR) can create incredibly beautiful pictures which blur our sense of the difference between reality and illusion. In graphics HDR imaging is a set of techniques that allow a far greater dynamic range of exposures than normal digital imaging techniques.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Audiobook) (repost) Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Audiobook) By Malcolm Gladwell English | 2005 | ISBN: 1586217194 | 7 hours and 43 minutes | M4B | 272 MB In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem.

Portrait Photography Tips Be Tactful Whatever the personality of the teenager(s) you want to photograph, approach them with tact and grace.
