No matter how advanced your camera you still need to be responsible for getting it to the right place at the right time and pointing it in the right direction to get the photo you want.

Software to try Out

So I figured I'd write this to tell you about two programs I've found that I like.

A few weeks ago I brought another monitor, so now i have a dual monitor setup. I decided to change my wallpaper today, and since I am currently watching the anime Air Gear I've scanned the images from the two dvd boxes and I wanted to set up both images, each on one screen. So, quick google search and I came across DisplayFusion( http://www.binaryfortress.com/displayfusion/ ) This has allowed me to put different wallpapers on both monitors. From the website the features are...

DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar and Desktop Wallpaper

DisplayFusion will make your dual monitor (or triple monitor or more) experience smooth and painless. With DisplayFusion you can add a taskbar to every monitor that works and looks just like the Windows Taskbar. Or take advantage of advanced multi-monitor wallpaper support, Flickr integration for image searching and fully customizable window management hotkeys. These are just a few of the many things that DisplayFusion can do.

  • Advanced Multi-Monitor Taskbar support
  • Use a different desktop wallpaper image on each monitor
  • Use a desktop wallpaper image that spans all monitors
  • Randomly change your desktop wallpaper using local images or images from Flickr
  • Drag or middle-click the taskbar of maximized windows to move them to other screens
  • Auto-snap windows to the edge of your monitor
  • Integrated Flickr.com image search & download
  • Integrated Vladstudio.com image search & download
  • Manage application windows with fully customizable hotkeys:
    • Move windows to the next monitor
    • Move windows to the next monitor and maximize them
    • Move windows to the centre, top, bottom, left or right side of the monitor
    • Size windows to a configured size or percent of the work area
    • Maximize windows so that they span all monitors
    • Customize your own hotkeys to do anything you can imagine
  • Built-in support for different languages:
    • English English
    • French French
    • German German
    • Spanish Spanish
    • Chinese (Simplified) Chinese (Simplified)

I just installed it a few minutes ago on my Vista 64 desktop and I am loving it right now. You can DOWNLOAD IT from here...

 

Another program I found that came in handy, Instant Eyedropper ( http://instant-eyedropper.com/ ) With this program, instead of taking screenshots and copying into photoshop to pick a specific colorfrom your computer monitor, you can go to your task bar, and drag an eyedropper over the screen and it will instantly give you the HEX code to the color you wanted. Check it out it saved me a lot of time when I was working on my last template, lol. If you want, DOWNLOAD IT here...

 

Both these programs are for windows. Display Fusion requres that you have the Microsoft .Net 2.0 framework. But yes, check them out, I am loving these programs right now. And best of all, they're FREE!!!

Bored, did a new Joomla Template

Yes so I was bored at work. Yesterday I created a new Joomla template which I am going to put temporarily on the site. I call it Splatter, and I am quite proud of it, lol. If anyone wants to use it or if you want to see it after I take it down, it is available on my DeviantArt page.

Photo Shoot

So last weekend me and Wolfie went on a photoshoot around my way. Got some good pictures, three of which I uploaded to my gallery, more of them are also on my Myspace photo gallery, but I'll link some of the images on this post. It was a fun shoot.

I'm seriously considering marketing myself and doing this for money. People tell me all the time I take great photos. I had fun doing the shoot last week and it came out great. Sure it was the first time I had a serious photo gig in a while, but yeah, I'm going to get back out there and continue to take pictures. With work and everything free time has not been a luxury I've had much of unfortunately. But, I'm not going to let that stop me.

Other than that, I need models!!! I have some ideas for photoshoots I want to take, but I need people to take pictures of. I guess I'll have to ask around,I know plenty of people that would be willing to pose for me. I just need to actually contact them and set up dates to take photos. Hmmm, maybe i'll see what Darkchyld is doing this weekend. I have some crazy ideals for what I want with him. Laughing Anyways, here are *some* of the pics from the photoshoot last week...

So I found another helpful thing on Stumbleupon. It will be good for Web Developers or any artist that ever wanted to get a HTML Color code without needing to use Print Screen then opening up the page in a Graphics program to find the color code.

I am checking it out now, and like some of the beset things in life, it is FREE!!! When I finally get around to either doing my next site or redesigning this one I might have to use this Wink
