Our daughter decided she wanted a friend to take pictures of her wedding. Now I do respect desire and effort, but this really was the time to hire a proven professional photographer instead. I had her compare pictures from her friend with the portfolios of a couple of Charlotte wedding photographers who stood out. The choice was obvious. Then she wanted me to tell her friend that we were hiring another photographer instead. That was a bit awkward until we actually sat down to talk. It turns out that the friend only had agreed to do it because she thought our daughter could not afford to have a real photographer do it. That was a relief to all of us.

Professional Charlotte wedding photographers have the equipment and experience to capture incredible wedding images in quickly changing situations. The light in churches is notoriously awful for photography. Read the rest of this entry »

When was the last time when you had a phone which was made especially for music? Personally, I had a Sony Ericsson Walkman for that, but the poor fellow is now forgotten in a drawer, back home. But let’s stop thinking about the past and focus on one of Samsung-s newest models – the Galaxy Music. You’re probably thinking that you won’t like something like this, as you’ll have to unlock the phone every time you want to control the player. Samsung had this in mind, so the phone has dedicated play and pause buttons and, of course, stereo speakers. Let’s see what this little guy can do-

Expected to be released this december, the Galaxy Music is a bit different from the what Samsung used us with. With a flashy color, chromed trims and a grill covering the front speakers, the phone drifts away from the simple design encountered on previous models. Still, hold your enthusiasm, as it isn’t a sensational phone for 2012. The 3.0? TFT touchscreen, with 256k colors, has a resolution of only 240320 pixels and about 133 pixel density, displaying some washed-out colors and weak viewing angles. Bad move, Samsung.

Studying the design, we can also see the regular buttons, like the volume rocker and power, the microSD card slot, and on the top, the 3.5 mm jack and the microUSB slot. Except the dedicated music buttons, nothing unusual.

Painting is a wonderful aspect of art in many forms. Among them, oil painting is regarded as a relatively unique and young form of art. Because of the use of oil pigments, paintings are known as oil paintings. When we look back in the history of painting, artists had a decorative as well as mythological outlook toward arts. But with the beginning of Renaissance period, artists had developed a different perspective of propagating this art.

Jan Van Eyck is known as the first person, who had explored the term oil painting. He desired to paint the comic characters on his canvas, but found it a bit critical with traditional tempera paints. In those days, paints were made by grounding up ingredients of plants and minerals that were blended with a binder to make paints of different colours. The painting made with these paints, took a long time to dry up. The smooth translation in painting was quite critical. So, to avoid all this, Van Eyck invented oil paints. Nowadays, these paints have gained immense popularity as these are the first choice of all world class painters. Several pieces of art such as boat oil painting are in great demand just because of the advanced features of these paints.

Those who have artistic skills, they know very well that painting is not possible without inspiration. If the painter is not inspired or motivated with any object, he must drop his brushes and go for a walk outdoor to get motivated from the Mother Nature. He can also visit a museum or gallery that is present in his locality. Moreover, he can also visit around the seascapes to make beautiful boat oil painting. As soon as he get inspiration, the first and foremost thing he need to do is to buy some oil paints to start his work. While choosing these paints, keep your object or inspiration always in mind. Try to buy world class quality oil paints in place of cheap colours.

It is just a time to eliminate small talk and laugh about the everyday stress. This is a time to strut to the dance floor and allow the soul bands electrify every single move.

A soul band can enhance, if not guide, the energy as well as fun of the party. This sort of band is made for just about any situation: weddings, birthday bashes, corporate galas, and private functions. This kind of band contains a wide range of songs to carry out, which may work extremely well with a diverse guests list. Their repertoire could include any popular compositions from soul, funk, disco, Afro-Cuban, and more. A soul band can also conduct as a Latin band. Professionals who have conducted at well-known gatherings normally have musicians who will play any sort of music. So even when a group is known a soul band, the diverseness will allow the band to perform nearly any type of music.

A proficient soul band can take on any sort of request from the guests. The evening may start with a groovy Earth, Wind & Fire classic, or rip right into a Sam & Dave shimmy. In the event the revelers opt to switch to samba or perhaps salsa, the competent music players can take on Celia Cruz or Tito Puente. When a soul band will be the evenings entertainment, it would not matter how it starts. The main goal should be to keep everybody dancing.
