Working with models very new to the scene has it's challenges.  However you can still make amazing images, even with complete amateur models.  In this article I lay out some of the things you have to consider with regard to newer models and how to make the most out of your sessions with them.

Naked Mind: the film - "A present mind is a happy mind."

From the Himalayas to US Neuroscience labs, two filmmakers explore the effects of meditation and its potential for collective evolution

 

"Scientific discoveries are proving that meditation can be beneficial to individual and collective happiness, but what does this mean outside an Eastern Buddhist culture? In contemporary American life, the term "mindfulness" has become a buzzword across a huge range of disciplines, from psychology and medicine to education, social action, and prison reform. This film asks: What does mindfulness mean, how does it relate to human happiness, and what does it mean to practice mindfulness in today's society? "

Mindfulness-Meditation is one key to getting a handle on who we are, who we are inside ourselves. Once we start exploring just who we are, many of us are surprised by what we find.


Throughout recorded history people have been using meditation as a tool to dig deep into our consciousness, dig deep into our souls. We wonder just who is this person I call self?


Well now here in the 21st century more and more people are wondering just what are people finding on their journey deep within their minds and they are writing books and making films about what they have found.


Here is a film project that is worthy of your support and I hope you will take a moment to watch and read their message on Kickstarter. The Project and film is called Naked Mind...

Curated Music Stations Radio Created By Real People: FUZZ

Giuseppe Mauriello:

The founders of Blip.fm this week launched the beta version of its brand new service FUZZ, a site that offers a new slant on interacting with songs you like and the people who share your tastes.
The site focuses on creating a very social experience that allows users building their own radio station(s) around a unique theme or custom genre using audio files from their own music collections.

 

 

From review article on CNET:

"Fuzz bills itself as great radio made by real people. What that means is that it's a site where anyone who participates becomes a DJ. You upload music you own (legally, of course), and it all lives on Fuzz's servers; Fuzz, in a sense, becomes a digital locker that let's you showcase your music. You create playlists, people follow you, and they give you "props," all of which ups your social standing and surfaces your playlists. The listeners decide what's most popular and which DJs are best in any number of genres.


"Our thing is that everybody can be a DJ," says FUZZ co-founder Jeff Yasuda. "But just because we let you be a DJ doesn't mean you're good."


In short, while other Internet radio services -- think Pandora or the lesser known Slacker -- are designed to let software help you discover music, Fuzz is about finding the people who share your musical tastes. At the core of the business is Yasuda's belief that algorithms just don't cut it when it comes to creating great radio.


"Give people a voice, give people a platform, and they'll do tremendous work for you," he says. "It's a lot more egalitarian, and it's a lot more interesting. The best recommendations -- for anything -- often don't come from people who aren't professionals, whether it's for music or wine."
