Photography gave humanity a wonderful opportunity to share their view of the reality through the visual image. The more the work is artistic and deep, more true vision it transmits. Professionals fought and resolved the problem of camera imperfection through inventing and combining different effects.
Nowadays information technologies provide with a great variety of ways to improve our photography and show exactly what we want. Moreover, technical progress made the process much easier than for example couple decades ago. To learn the latest tricks your just need to have internet and a strong wish. So, I’d like to meet you half-way and share the nicest examples of 2 new photography techniques: redinol and chai-lenol. Be inspired!

The name of this technique, as you could notice, comes from the word “red”. The effect of redinol reminds the old style photography – not vintage, but early photography style. However, it stands out with a modern quality: nice contrast range is beautifully combined with the brew.

Sometimes, Login form is the first what a visitor sees entering your website. In fact, this seemingly small detail is a starting point where the user begins to form the first impression of your company. The original observations and conclusions are often the most decisive. That’s why web developers usually strive to create a unique Login form that fits the general webpage style and looks friendly and welcoming for the user. This is obviously the utopist optimistic scenario of website creation when each and every trifle is thoroughly polished by the professional of the highest level. Nevertheless, the reality may be much more severe in terms of limited budget, time and plenty of other global stuff having crucial influence on the end result.

Constructive criticism is good and everybody should be open to it. Nobody is perfect; criticism helps us to spot our weaknesses and gives us the chance to rectify it for better results. However, as nobody is perfect, some of the critical comments you receive might not be right too. Criticism is not all about acting upon the comments quickly – you have to listen to everything and then do whatever you think to be the best option for you.
Hence, you should have the knowledge of how to deal with user feedback at the first place. It is true that both positive and negative suggestions can help you improve. However, you have to identify the right and wrong part of it and then you have to implement. Your reaction to the feedback makes a huge difference. Let’s learn more about it. Read More

Do you know many writers that use a typewriter or even a pen? I think your answer would be “No”, because it’s kinda retrograde. And imagine, some oddballs use a goose feather (I don’t think they have much success in writing, but anyway). So, what’s the problem with the painting art? There are wonderful tablets for painting, many programs and tools. So why do some artists still use oldschool methods? Sure, I don’t deny some of them are pertinent – but still they can ease their work a lot with the help of modern technologies. Digital painting is definitely cool.
In order to demonstrate what gorgeous things can be painted digitally, I’ll show 44 examples. They contain different people and fantasy or sci-fi humanoid characters, non-human creatures, parts of body, manifestations of nature, effects. But the samples are not just to watch (and enjoy) – all of them provide with the detailed digital painting tutorials for creating each of those pictures, in case you would like to try yourself in this field (and I wish you good luck if it’s so).

Of course, HTML5 remains an untested new technology, and it may not be for everyone. Still, if you think you are up for the challenge, you may wish to jump in right away. Ready or not, HTML5 will be the new standard for HTML, and is designed to support CSS3 fully in all its variety of modules. Unbelievably, it has been over a decade since the release of the previous version of HTML, HTML 4.01, which came out in 1999. Obviously, the web has changed significantly since then, with the advent of Web 2.0 user-generated content, modern social media sites, and mobile devices dominating internet access.
For those not in the know, HTML5 is the result of cooperation between the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG). Previously, WHATWG had focused on web forms and applications, whereas W3C was working with XHTML 2.0. In 2006, they decided to cooperate and create a new version of HTML, which ultimately became what we now know as HTML5. Take a look at some of these carefully selected tutorials below if you are interested in learning about this cutting-edge technology, and maybe getting started.

Minimalist web design is increasingly en vogue right now as more and more sites seek streamlined pages and novel aesthetics. Minimal design is also the “modern” face of web design; sites that keep a cluttered look run the risk of looking out of date. Furthermore, sites that are full of visual distractions are usually harder for users to understand and navigate, thus detracting from the site’s purpose. If you’re looking to draw more visitors to your blog or personal website, it can be helpful to refer to design blogs and successful corporate sites for examples of outstanding minimalist design.
