NEW WAYS TO USE YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA FOR FUN AND PROFITWritten by Valerie Goettsch
If you’re only using your digital camera for vacation and family photos, you’ve just scratched surface of your camera’s uses. Digital photography has opened a new world of possibilities. Here are some fun, practical, and maybe even profitable, ways to use your digital camera.
Enhance your photo before uploading to an online dating service As online dating services become more and more popular, you may be considering this option to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. You’ll want to look your best to capture attention of your potential mate, so how about brighter eyes and whiter teeth? It’s pretty easy to enhance your digital photo using inexpensive photo editing software such as Foto Finish or Jasc Paint Shop Pro. You can adjust overall brightness and contrast to generally brighten image. Zoom in on your eyes and using software’s polygon or magic wand tool, select just whites of your eyes. Then use ‘adjust color’ or ‘adjust exposure’ tool to make your eyes brighter and less red. Similarly, you can zoom in and select your teeth, then adjust color and exposure. And voila! A fresher, more alert and attractive-looking you.
Selling goods on eBay Research shows that merchandise with attractive photos sell at better prices. People are naturally drawn to appealing images. To show your items at best advantage, you can rig an inexpensive tabletop “studio” using a sheet of non-glare white plastic and a PVC pipe for support. The important points to remember are having a uniform background behind and below object and even lighting, either with shop lights or natural sunlight (through a window—it’s best to shoot indoors). You may need to adjust white balance on your digital camera, which is easy to do on most new cameras. Then you can watch auction bids rise on that antique clock you’re trying to sell.
Feng Shui Flying Star application.... (Advanced)Written by John Mausolf
Could you share your understanding in pairing up following & list pairs in order of most importance/power for interpreting flying star configurations:
mountain star, water star, time/earth/construction star, year/annual star, monthly star, house trigram, personal trigram, etc.
Go to my links page (part of my Freebies section), and join either of Feng Shui e-mail lists, they are perfect forum for just your type of questions. Well worth time and effort.
In regard of wealth, compare mountain star to water star. Is it enhancing it, against it, weakening it, etc...? Still thinking about wealth, what is (you call) time/earth/construction star doing to it during this 20 year period and also look at next period. Check Yearly stars to see if they may trigger anything. Don't worry about monthly stars too much, their effect is normally too weak to concern yourself with.
Do same things, but this time for mountain stars in regard of health and relationships.
