When opening a gift to find a new Nikon D7000 inside will bring a smile to anyones face. If you do not purchase it brand new, chances are that the original instructional manual did not come with it. If you find the manual be sure to read it thoroughly so that you can learn the instructions and how to properly use the D7000. If there is no manual then you must learn as you go, but the first thing you must do is insert the battery and a memory card into the camera. Once you have done this the next step is to turn the camera on. This can be done by using the collar switch around the shutter and by turning it to the on position. Most cameras that are made by Nikon and are somewhat similar to the D7000 have the same procedure for turning the camera on.

Everybody Should Learn How to Draw

Comments off

I think all students in elementary schools should learn how to draw. Of course, they were supposed to learn that in our class, but now mostly art classes are just arts and crafts classes. It would be better, and more useful, if the education system could implement a good proven way to learn how to draw, and then have the students go through the program at their own pace.

This idea that it takes artistic talent to be able to draw is just nonsense. Some people just teach themselves to draw, like some other people teach themselves to read. Of course some people to have exceptional artistic talent, just the way some people have exceptional literary talent. But you don’t need any talent to draw in a basic way. You just need to have someone explain the principles of drawing to you, and then you need to practice a little. There are no special gifts required.

The Horror Beach

No one has ever held any beach weddings at my beach. It’s a horror beach. Scary things happen there. Some people say I am scary but they just don’t know about the gnomes hiding at the bottom of my garden above the little private cove where my grandchildren used to swim. We had a wedding down there one day. It was the day my father married all his money away to that crazy gambler who took us all for such a ride. We ended up laying her to rest on the beach. I’ll say no more about that. There were a few blood curdling moments to be sure but the family recovered from its problems sure enough. My boys have all grown up and moved away now, there doesn’t seem much point maintaining the place. It’ll all be firewood one day. No beach weddings to brighten things up or to ruin everybody’s day.

A Brief History of Botanical Prints

Comments off

The idea of using plants to create botanical prints emerged in the mid 16th century. People who were keen on conserving plant life and artist came together and initiated what was to later become an interest to many people. Their main aim of applying art to represent plants was for further learning and understanding. The botanical prints led to the formation of the largest garden of Eichstatt in 1613. Today, an improved version of what was there before can be readily purchased from botanical experts or artists. The Linnaean system of classifying plant had a strong influence on the history of botanical art; plants could now be named with special reference to a standard system. Emerging ideas about plants could now be researched and understood thanks to the standard system introduced by Linnaes. The early 18th century saw the introduction of improved botanical artworks where detailed landscapes were included in the prints. Botanical art remain fascinating to date.

Simple Pictures of Nature

Comments off

I have always loved the outdoors. Camping and hiking and seeing nature up close has always had something special for me and in the past couple of months I have started taking my camera with me. One time recently I was camped by a waterfall and spent an entire afternoon just looking and taking photos of the fast flowing water. It was one of the best afternoons of my life. My favourite landscape photography is simple pictures of nature. A beautiful river or forest for example. Or a big red sunset in the mountains, all those things I have always enjoyed seeing for myself on my travels. Sometimes my friends ask if I ever get lonely out there on my own but funnily enough the answer is no. The truth is I usually don’t even notice that I am alone as I soak in the beautiful sights all around me.
