Dave’s 5 Crappy Photo Tips

img_1620

As promised on Episode 53, here are my 5 crappy photo tips:

  1. Don’t put your finger over the lens.
    • While this may seem like an obvious tip, you’d be surprised how often this happens. I have photos to prove it.
  2. Make sure your subject is in focus.
    • Unless you’re going for an “artsy fartsy” look, use the focus button setting thing.
  3. Keep your camera dry.
    • Since most cameras these days are electronic, they won’t work if they get wet.
    • Pro Tip (ding) use a waterproof camera if you’ll be taking underwater photos.
  4. Don’t take photos while jumping on a trampoline.
    • For whatever reason, most photos turn out blurry if you move around a lot.
    • If available, use something stable to set your camera on. See Fixed Annuities.
  5. Don’t take photos in front of the sun.
    • I didn’t letter in maths, but even I know you should have more light in front of your subject than behind.
    • If you you’re taking pictures of behinds, then ignore the above tip.

I hope you have enjoyed reading these crappy tips as much as I have writing them. If for some reason you still have questions on taking better photos, let us know!

Apple Announces New MacBook Pros at Today’s Event

newmacbookpro-800x743Apple has been hard at work this year building an all new line of MacBook Pros. At today’s event, we had a chance to see what we’ve waited so long for.

The new product line up now includes updated 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pros with an all new, interactive Touch Bar, which replaces the function key row. Apple has also replaced the MacBook Air line of laptops with an all new 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar.

Here’s the breakdown of the starting configurations of Apple’s new portable computer lineup:

13″ MacBook – $1299
13″ MacBook Pro – $1499
13″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar – $1799
15″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar – $2399

Listen to this episode to see if Dave’s predictions for the Apple Event came true. There was a ton of news this week but we packed a record number of Pro Tips (Ding) in and might have named our Pro Tip (Ding) of the year.
