The Other Side Of The Screen Is My World

2E5Bbhr8

The other side of the screen is the world I want to live in, the other side of the computer screen is the world that I find myself in.

Since I was young, I had many ideas, and tried a lot of them, I have created a podcast website (msn space) before podcasts were there, and created a website (www.sawwarna.com) which I literately thought about its layout while I was sleeping. But life on internet and by internet has changed dramatically, and every three to four months, a new thing appears.

To start a fan base, and to deliver a content to this fan base, I have to focus on few social media platforms, but cover all the platforms to be able to attract larger number of followers, subscribers and readers.

we have very powerful tools to share to the world, but each tool has followers with different demographics, and a calendar of posts, quotes, updates and creation should not only determine the social media platform and the timing, also it should determine the type of content it should have, to whom it is directed, and what kind of marketing it requires .

all of these thoughts of mine are still not connected together, but I promise that I’m going to connect them together soon, specially with the different activities and posts types I do.

for the time being … I’m semi active on instagram, twitter, linkedinwordpress, and youtube… but I will try to cover snapchat, and facebook again.

the subjects that I’m welling to cover:

I’m hoping for the best, because I know and I’m very sure that my life will go for the best if I started doing what I really like and what I really want to be doing… an entrepreneur through the internet, I have other contact with a business model that I’m creating that will be a new thing insha’allah.

Reading a book

After all these digital words and paragraphs as I’m writing now, I had a confused thought about purchasing a new book. should I get it on my ipad or should I go to the library to purchase it from there ?

Then I started to remember my father’s opinion about books, how he holds the book, smell the papers, touch the cover and touch the pages, how he write notes, highlight and translate some words, my father has this philosophy about reading, so he is a very important reference to this issue.

 

I decided to purchase it as a physical book, and guess what ! I’m really happy with my decision, reading a book before sleeping though a paper is much acceptable by me than reading it through a screen with all the notifications jumping around

 

my new list of books is the following:

The Rules of Life – Richard Templar

Maps of My Life – Guy Browning

Obliquity – John Kay

Trading Up – Michael J. Silverstein and Neil Fiske

Confessions of a radical industrialist – Ray Anderson with Robin White

Confidence at Work – Ros Taylor

 

I’m a kind of reader who reads a little from each book, then jump to another book to read, so when i finish a book, I finish all the books together (3 to 4 at a time)

 

I might post my opinion about each book, because I’m trying a new method in blogging.

HDR ing pictures

I know I know, we all love HDR, and not all of us know how to do it, but there are pretty much programs that can do it for you without any editing and any “HDRing” skills …. this post is not for teaching people how to create HDR pics, this post is for the People who know how to use the fancy programs …..

 

Dear “people who know how to do HDR”,

 

please stop it, please and please and please as much as needed to make you not being addicted to HDR every single picture you take, even with one exposure …. please stop it and think think and think before using any HDR program again.

I’ve seen alot of beautiful HDR pictures that can make you feel that you live in the picture, but 70% of these pictures are more beautiful before being “HDRed” … I want you to know that you are ADDICTED , and this is what makes most of your pictures looks NIONy and stupid and has alot of stupid lighting and alot of overdose of strength ….

what is addiction? is when you can’t stop doing something,

Is it something good or bad? addiction is bad, addiction stop the person’s sense
What abou tthe artistic  HDR pictures?  please tell me something, are you a photographer who can’t make his pictures artistic without HDRing ?

people, I’m telling you this not to say that I’m against HDR, I love HDR pictures and I use it in my pictures alot, but I take pictures that need HDR to be shown all, as a different lighting exposures in a few that i want to show it all, as a picture from indoor to outdoor with the need to show the indoor and the outdoor items, or a picture for a landscape where i need to show the reflection of the water as a real water…. or the lines on a piece of wood …. but some other pictures need some contrast changing only, or exposure without creating three or four pictures to create the HDR.

think clearly and use the HDR technique wisely and then choose one out of 15 pictures you like, and make it artistic HDR and that My friend will make you an HDR lover, not addicted…

 

Regards, 😀

sincerely someone who’ve got fed up from stupid HDR pics
