Having Fun With Toy Photography

| April 29, 2009

Photography is not only about beautiful faces, beautiful sceneries, unforgettable moments, and artistic shots. One can have more fun in Photography by taking shots of their favourite collection of anime toys. Not only you can enjoy opening them and putting them in a special display cabinet but there is also so much fun in taking special shots of your anime toys. Shots that can make you say, “Wow, I’ve got a really cool toy”.

The challenge in this kind of photography is to make these toys seem like real or big when the toy is really small. You need to be creative in setting up backgrounds and lightings to match the anime toy. You can use different color backgrounds by using “cartolina” or any other kind of paper that can be used as a background. Also, you can either use the natural light outside or just use lighting equipment from your home like desk lamp.

| April 14, 2009

Not all people are really good at interviews. There are people who suck at interviews but are qualified for the job and really good in fulfilling the tasks assigned to them and there are some who are really good at interviews but do suck at delivering their job responsibilities. This explains why a company would sometimes hire people that can not perform well in their jobs and missed out people who can perform very well and has a passion for excellence. I read somewhere from an individual who posted a comment about a related issue, his tip is to wear a really nice and short skirt at interviews because in the company where he is working they have women employees who wear clothes like this and performing really bad (hehehe).
