He picks me up at my apartment, and just outside, he turns to me and says: "Listen, I know this is lame, and feel free to say no... But the first kiss thing is always so nerve-wracking, and builds up so much pressure... It could have been weird, but he said it in a charming way, and he was a pretty good looking guy (I made sure of that via pictures before I agreed to the date). "Fair enough," I said, and leaned in for a quick peck. And that's when he jammed his tongue down my throat, and dug ten fingers into my ass. Actually "jammed his tongue down my throat" was just the beginning - after I yanked my head away, our "nothing big" kiss was followed by some traditional face-licking, and I believe I even got a little tongue up my nostril. As for the ass-grab, the phrase "kneading bread dough" kept coming to mind as I struggled to pry myself from his cheek-death grip. I still think that line could have worked. First dates are always awkward."

Make your photo books Camera Lens Once you've settled on the subject and the light, you have to decide on the relative prominence of objects in the scene. By moving the camera position back and forth, you can adjust the relative size of objects in the scene. After you're happy with the position, you pick a camera lens whose angle of view encompasses all the objects that you want to include in the photo. Objects? Au contraire! Aesthetic tip from MIT: when your nose sticks out 5" in front of your eyes, you don't want it to appear relatively more prominent. Suppose that you actually want this photo as the "before" illustration in a plastic surgeon's advertisement. Suppose that you wish to flatter Cyrano. What about the 24mm lens from this camera position? Exactly how long a camera lens do you need? Apologies to people from countries that have adopted sensible units. If sensors and camera lenses were perfect... you would need only one lens! In a perfect world, you would leave the house with only a Canon 14 super-wide lens. Rent

Camera Lenses" In the last section, we saw that at any one point, a lens bends light beams to a certain total degree, no matter the light beam's angle of entry. This total "bending angle" is determined by the structure of the lens. A lens with a rounder shape (a center that extends out farther) will have a more acute bending angle. Basically, curving the lens out increases the distance between different points on the lens. This increases the amount of time that one part of the light wave is moving faster than another part, so the light makes a sharper turn. Increasing the bending angle has an obvious effect. Increasing the distance between the lens and the real image actually increases the total size of the real image. The same basic thing happens in a camera. Professional cameras let you attach different lenses so you can see the scene at various magnifications. Different lenses are suited to different situations.
