As a photographer and creative mind, you often search for new and interesting ways to present your work. One way in which to present your work in an illuminating your work is to create a lampshade with a panoramic photograph.
For the project you will need:
1. A white Drum or Cylinder lampshade.
2. A photo (ink jet vellum paper) or collection of photos that fits the height and circumference as the lampshade.
3. Glue dots or double sided tape
The next step once you have assembled all of your stuff is to print the photo(s) on translucent paper. Then cut and measure the photos so that they fit around the shade. You may then either past the image to the inside or outside of the shade depending upon which affect you so desire. I have not yet done this project, however I will do so soon, and will of course post the results.

With the high use of digital cameras these days, I have noticed people rarely print the photos they take. Well here is a good reason to print some of your favorite shots, to make a wall-o-photos. The wall-o-photos consist of clear, plastic, hanging sleeves. You can find them at Urban Outfitters.

Are you looking to shoot some awesome pictures of fireworks this coming Fourth of July? An article at the Digital Photography School gives advice to amateurs on techniques for shooting fireworks.
1. A tripod is a must to prevent blurry images since you will be shooting at a slow shutter speed.
2. Use a Remote Release to insure that the camera does not move during the shot to prevent blur. A shutter release cable or Remote control will do the trick
3. Plan ahead; look for a good location to capture the image paying attention to foreground and background.
4. Shoot with at a wide angle in terms of focal length, this allows you to capture as much of the action as possible. This also leaves room to crop your photos latter.
5. You can use an aperture setting anywhere from f/8 to f/16.
6. Shoot in a ‘bulb’ mode and open the shutter when the firework goes off and keep it open until it finishes.
7. Keep the ISO setting low to keep as much detail as possible.
8. Experiment with these general guidelines
