Generating Values From Images-- 6 Great Ways

Generating Values From Images-- 6 Great Ways




Photography has a way of being more than a skill, it can essentially ‘teach’ life lessons. The right application of subject, the right emphasis on various emotions, and what you end up with is a non-literary method of teaching various values of life.
Companies such as www.yescomusa.com deliver the best components for creating great photography. Great equipment can be used for more than great pictures - they can present values to their viewers through imagery, and instill in them a stronger sense of ethics.
Values of an image—think about it
1. Sincerity- A photograph can teach sincerity. It can teach the concept of a special bond and being true to it; whether this is with a person, or a hobby.
2. Happiness- Happiness can be expressed through a countless number of ways through effective photographic methods.
3. Sadness- The concepts of sadness and hard times aren’t something we should focus on heavily, but need to accept and recognize. Photographs can portray pain beautifully.
4. Hope- An image can deliver the belief of hope and overcoming difficulty. It’s a great value to apply toward life and everyday growth.
5. Individualism- The strength of being yourself. Applying the idea into the minds of people through the source of an image can really help them identify with it as a true value.
6. Love- Love was saved for last, but certainly not the least. Love is something we can all identify with and feel passionate toward.  Photography allows this feeling to last forever.
Applying proper techniques through the right equipment is the very beginning to becoming a photographer of great standing.  Reputable retailers such as www.yescomusa.com give you the opportunity to buy great equipment, take great photos, and work on improving your photography skills.  Allow yourself the opportunity to educate and promote great values and commitments by thinking of what you are trying to accomplish, and making it happen in your own specialized way.

ABC Wed: Elephant





Taxidermist-ed elephant in the Auckland museum.
Rajah was a bull Indian Elephant, purchased by Auckland Zoo for 125 pounds from Hobart Zoo, who arrived in November 1930, aged 13. He measured 8 foot 3 (~2.5m) tall, and 9 foot 4 (2.8m~) long. He was a constant source of trouble, and was never trusted by staff. Eventually, his keeper became unable to control him, and he was shot on 9 March 1936.

He was mounted by the taxidermist Charles Dover. He has been on show there ever since, and is in reasonable condition.
