How to Make Closer Friendships “Friendships don’t just happen,” says William Rawlins, a professor of interpersonal communication at Ohio University. “They don’t drop from the sky.” Like any relationship, friendships take effort and work. Best Practices for Batch Syncing Audio in Adobe Premiere Syncing production audio is one of the most tedious and time-consuming post-production tasks. I’ve already written about my preferred method—using DaVinci Resolve’s auto-sync feature—which allows you to sync an entire day’s worth of footage in one click. Yet syncing in Resolve isn’t always the best option for your overall workflow. If you’re planning to use Premiere’s built-in proxy workflow, which requires that proxy and full resolution media have a matching number of audio tracks, then creating synced proxies in Resolve flies out the window. Or, in some scenarios, you may be shooting in an edit-ready codec like ProRes or DNxHR and simply don’t need to create proxies.

Also, the best short stories are every bit as engaging and meaningful as the best novels.

The Origin of the Nerd Introduction In the little more than a decade since I created my original web page here about the origin of the word nerd, it has grown considerably, in part due to various controversies about the word's origins as well as to new information and speculation about its history. My views on the term's origin have not changed much, as you can see by the fact that Dr. Seuss's Nerd has joined me in the page's icon (assuming that you're not viewing the page in the "Full Width" style), but it does seem like time to reorganize the material. The factor that made me decide that nerd might be a label worth reclaiming was its early association with Dr.

On “Geek” Versus “Nerd” To many people, “geek” and “nerd” are synonyms, but in fact they are a little different. Consider the phrase “sports geek” — an occasional substitute for “jock” and perhaps the arch-rival of a “nerd” in high-school folklore. If “geek” and “nerd” are synonyms, then “sports geek” might be an oxymoron. (Furthermore, “sports nerd” either doesn’t compute or means something else.) In my mind, “geek” and “nerd” are related, but capture different dimensions of an intense dedication to a subject:
The Invisible Black Backdrop - Photography Technique - Glyn Dewis Over the past few weeks in preparation for the launch of my new ‘InSight Photography Workshop’ I’ve been running ‘testers’ (mini workshops) with groups of photographers to teach a range of lighting techniques and also to get brutal honest feedback. One of the techniques I’ve been teaching has become affectionately knows as ‘The Invisible Black Backdrop’ and without doubt has proven to be one of the most popular techniques amongst attendees. So, this got me thinking…why not write a tutorial, post it on the blog and then encourage those who give it a go to submit their photographs?…I mean, what better way to judge your teaching than by seeing the results achieved by others?
