For example, In a company like Google, Yahoo or IBM & Microsoft, if they want to share document between the employees they have to create their own share drive on intranet and allow other employees to access the share drive prior getting “access” to share drive. What if, say “What IF” they want to share any document on internet to publicly, clients or any business reason, how they will share? Obviously they are not going to give access to internal share drive.

You might be thinking how they might share documents? At this point we come across with Web 2.0 tools, where owner can give access to any user from any domain ID on Internet.index1

To make you at ease we have few Web 2.0 tools in market and that for Free. Yes you heard it its absolutely FREE ! FREE ! ! FREE ! ! !

Are you into Photography? Do you have SLR and want to use best of it?

We’ve all had the experience: Driving through a beautiful landscape, you stop at every scenic overlook to make photographs sure to capture the grandeur of what you see.

You get home, look at the pictures, and find them flat and boring. All the elements that enthralled you at the time are there, but not the feeling. Why?

I’ve been experiencing a great exposure of climatic change in Brisbane. It’s been hardly one week to me in Brisbane and I have seen climates changing in 30mins. I’ve been into landscape photography for a couple of years now. It’s a fantastic hobby and hugely rewarding, but also has a bit of a learning curve. While I would not consider myself anywhere near a pro at this stage, I’ve picked up on a few useful things here and there. Below are some tips which I hope others who are just starting out in the world of landscape photography will find useful.

Why You Should Research Your Locations

If you are planning a photography trip then it’s important to do some research beforehand. Use the internet to find as much information as you can about your destination. Try to identify potential places of interest and find out the best times of the year to go – some places are much more photogenic in certain seasons while others look great all year round. Try to avoid peak tourist seasons though, as busy places mean more people to get in the way of your shots.

There are some great tools to help you prepare for your trip. Google Maps and Google Earth allow you to get a good idea of exactly how things will look and, in some cases, even enable you to compose your shots from the comfort of your computer! Not all locations have detailed views available but at the very least you can get a rough idea on potential spots to visit.

Another great tool for landscape photographers is The Photographers Ephemeris. This piece of software will tell you the exact time of sunrise, sunset, moonrise, and moonset at any given date for any location in the world. Not only that but it will also show you the direction that the sun and moon will be at those times. By knowing exactly where the sun will rise or set, you can plan your shots accordingly.

Whether you are planning a trip or shooting locally, have a look at photos that other landscape photographers have taken in the area. This will give you ideas on potential places to shoot, but don’t simply go and copy their photos, put your own take on them.

Shoot about 30 minutes before and after sunset.

ISO 100, 18mm, F/5.6, 1/100 sec

ISO 100, 18mm, F/5.6, 1/100 sec

A sunset is a great thing to capture, but even if you’re not shooting the sunset but instead shooting at a 90-degree angle to the sunset or even shooting with the sunset at your back, having that subtle light brings out the colors in landscape photos. Most outdoor photography magazines won’t even consider shots that haven’t been shot around this time, as well as before/after sunrise.

Have a foreground, middle-ground, and background.

ISO 100, 18mm, F/9, 1/250 sec

ISO 100, 18mm, F/9, 1/250 sec

This is part of the rule of thirds, which I cover in the next tip. Make sure you have three elements in landscape shot in order to make it more aesthetically pleasing. For example, if there are some seagulls running on the beach along the shore, that can be the foreground, while the middleground would be the waves crashing and part of the ocean, and the distant ocean and horizon would be the background.

Please share the feedback and view on the blog.
