Tips for Print Photography


Here are few quick tips that may help if you're thinking about having prints of your digital photos produced.

  • For the best quality artwork, use the highest resolution your camera can handle. To put it simply, the higher the resolution, the larger you can print the image. If your resolution is too low, you will see a warning when you upload.
  • Black-and-white images add a lot of modern drama to the room. To really make the images pop, choose a canvas museum wrap, or a black frame and a white mat. The black frame creates a strong contrast while also complimenting the gray tones of your image.
  • Ever wonder what causes red eyes in photos? Basically, the light from a flash is being reflected from the back of the eyeball! The good news is that most modern cameras have a quick setting to reduce red eye.
  • Think you only use a flash in the dark? Guess again. When photographing in bright sunlight, you can turn on the flash of your camera to reduce the harshness of the shadows.
  • As you decide where to hang your photo artwork, keep in mind that the optimum viewing distance for a framed print (or canvas wrap) is about twice the diagonal of the frame.
  • Want to capture your subject in mid-motion like the pros do? Simply use a higher shutter speed and a higher ISO setting to freeze the motion. A higher ISO setting is also ideal for dimmer conditions, like cloudy days or indoor shots.

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.


After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.


Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.


Sometimes no caption is necessary.


But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.


I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.


This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.

An open letter to Emmanuel Macron, President of France

Dear Pres. Macron,

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has been invited for the celebration of Bastille Day, a day for celebrating democracy and independence of the French people.

As a citizen of the United States, I encourage you to revoke the invitation. Donald Trump does not represent the vast majority of the American people. As you have stated publicly, if the United States is not going to support science, you have offered US scientists the option of emigrating to France for the continuation of their studies on climate change.

Additionally, Donald Trump has made his nationalist and blatantly racist feelings known on multiple occasions, again something I know that you personally find offensive.

The majority of Americans would support the decision for France to revoke his invitation. Citizens of the United States need to take responsibility for removing their country from a position of influence on the world stage. Our previous president, Barack Obama, strived to be a …

Safe Sex with Donald and Daisy

Donald Duck and Daisy Duck were spending the night together in a hotel room and Donald started to get romantic with Daisy.

The first thing Daisy asked was, "Do you have any protection?"

Donald frowned and said, "No."

Daisy told Donald that if he didn't get any protection, they could not get romantic.

"Maybe they sell some supplies at the front desk," she suggested.

So Donald went down to the lobby and asked the hotel clerk if they had any supplies.

"Yes, we do," the clerk said and pulled a box out from under the counter and gave it to Donald.

The clerk asked, "Would you like me to put them on your bill?"

"HECK No!" Donald quacked, "I'll thuffocate!"
