#Quotes ~ Never Stop Re-Thinking the Answer

5 Mar

“Once you’ve decided that something’s absolutely true, you’ve closed your mind on it, and a closed mind doesn’t go anywhere. Question everything. That’s what education’s all about.”

How Law School Ruins Your Life #3billion – You suddenly realize that every great library in movies is actually filled with law books (you can tell from the bindings). And suddenly the library seems just a little bit less fun and more like school 0_0 SADNESS!!!

THE SECRET TO TAKE BETTER TRAVEL PHOTOS

31 Jul

“THE SECRET TO TAKE BETTER TRAVEL PHOTOS”

via “Bacon is Magic”

Have a DSLR and don't know how to shoot other than on auto? Read this about how to take better travel photos.

Travel and photography seem to go hand in hand. A month before my 2007 trip to New Zealand I wanted to take better photos than what my point and shoot had been taking.

Fortunately, my ex (you know the one I left to travel) is a great photographer and gave me an old Canon film SLR from the 1970s and a crash course on how to take photos.

I had never considered myself a creative person before that but I fell in love with photography. When I returned from New Zealand I bought a used DSLR. Ten thousand photos later I travel with a Canon 60D with three lenses.

I spend a lot of time reading about how to take better photos and my frustration is that most sites list the basics or get too technical there seems to be no in between– I get that we’re supposed to shoot in the golden hour but what next?

Well Beth from Beers and Beans has finally told me.

Bethany is an amazing photographer. She isn’t the kind where you look at it and think wow that is a technically perfect photo she is the kind that makes you feel something and think wow I wish I could do that.

She just launched an ebook called Getting out of Auto and I cannot express how amazing this guide is.

Part One includes all the basics, the stuff that seems complicated like f stops and aperture. But instead of just stating what they are, she actually explains them in a way you can understand with lots of photos. . . .

Gilbert Law Summaries List

23 Apr

Hello! This is for the Law Students/Lawyers who read my stuff 🙂

I have recently discovered that I couldn’t find a good list of Gilbert Law Summaries that are available.  Although most of them are available on Amazon, there are so many new, used, and duplicate names that it is hard to find out what is actually there. However, there isn’t a publisher website to locate or a list I could find elsewhere. So I put my own together!

I have listed them alphabetically here as closely as possible.  There actually aren’t as many as I thought; however, some differ from Emanuel and cover up those holes.  Hope this helps someone else!
