At the end of their careers in the limelight black female models know that they must make way for younger talent. Well before that time comes many will proactively start thinking about what they’ll do to earn an income in the future. They therefore become determined to make the most of their current jobs to ensure that they will make a smooth transition into whatever careers they aspire for. A good number of models have managed to do this and Black Men Digital magazine has been fortunate enough to interview them.
One such lady is Shanti Saha who now runs Saha Concierge, a high-end concierge service that caters to sports and entertainment industry elites. Saha earned her degree in nursing from Florida State University in 2005. This in itself speaks volumes considering that many people solely attribute the success of to their natural good looks but not their individual intelligence, an unfortunate assumption that should be totally dispelled because many other models have college degrees in diverse disciplines.es.
Since its launch in 2011 Saha Concierge has established a fine reputation for itself, of course thanks to the competent management abilities of its CEO. Saha is held in high esteem by her high profile clients as she ably handles their epicurean travel bookings, accommodations and events requirements. Her client list, which currently features luminaries like Sean Kingston, Yung Berg, Cuda Love and Bryant McKinnie, is definitely set to become more celebrity-crusted in the future. In sort of a mentorship role, Saha requires all attending her clients’ events to display elegance, sophistication and classiness, not cattiness and drama. A fine reputation, she says, is the perfect prerequisite for guaranteeing client satisfaction.
Another of the black models who is now scaling the heights of success in the entertainment industry is Angela Yee. She, after a career in the hip hop music industry, previously hosted two popular radio shows on Shade 45 i.e. -The Morning After With Angela Yee- and -Lip Service-. The latter was especially popular because the invited interviewees were well known personalities from the entertainment industry and they were engaged in discussions based on their relationships and sex lives. Angela then moved to Power 105.1 and now hosts -The Breakfast Club-. While her new show isn’t sexually-oriented it has definitely caught on with the public in a massive way. In collaboration with Vibe Magazine the show is now also available in print and video versions. Angela Yee certainly exemplifies the notion that black female models have what it takes to become quintessential market leaders whatever their line of work is.

Professional photography has always been affected by changing trends due to changing technologies and changing perceptions. Here are some present trends.
It is common knowledge nowadays for most professional photographers in New York that the Professional Photographers of America hold a convention by the name of Imagining USA bringing the best professional photographers at one place. Aspiring photographers too throng the place to meet the best in the industry so that they get to learn some tips about professional photography from them. The group recently met in New Orleans and many of those who visited the place got a chance to meet featured artists. A huge number of talented and creative photographers are always in the fray for the convention.
These conventions are a clear indication about the changing diaspora of the profession and the industry. Professional photography has been evolving rapidly on a continual basis and here are five most noticeable trends:
1. Embrace professional photography
Featured artists mostly consist of couples and even young people who are extremely interested in photography and willing to learn new things. Several artists in New York and its suburbs actually are willing to push the envelope. Every photographer has a special vision.
2. Photographers are proving to be good business people
The conventions like the one mentioned above host speakers who are well versed with the field and provide dozens of tips to new and budding photographers. Tips are also provided to photographers on how to structure the business to fit in with different scenarios. Creation of successful business plans are essential in this age of information where one needs to be talented enough and also have a sound business acumen to achieve success in the competitive field of professional photography in New York.
3. Capture scenes with drama and emotion and inventive angles
Many photographers have invented new shooting techniques including the -Fish Five- technique of shooting with two cameras at a time. These tricks and the new technology embedded in professional SLR cameras have boosted the vision of all types of photographers. A clear vision with an inventive outlook is helpful for all professionals to see different things in different light, all the time.
4. Fusion of still photography with moving images (video)
Some photographers have enhanced their still photography skills to video and have used the same techniques to enhance the video quality images and effects. A combination of still images with a quick shutter slide can bring images to life and looks beautiful too.
5. Social media sharing and connecting with people
The latest trends in photography have involved the social circles too. Facebook is resorted to by photographers for better chances of spreading their vision and publicize their talent. Blogs and other social channels are instrumental in creating the right buzz about photography while a studio’s website can lead relevant people to relevant places. Facebook, Flickr and Instagram are the most popular channels on the web and piping hot. Pinterest is certainly making the right noises for many photographers with its wall-based display of different images.
The talent and enthusiasm of professional
Shooting in Monochrome
To give a contemporary photo an old-fashioned feel, try shooting in monochrome. A picture done entirely in black and white or sepia tones achieves on old time look. Rather than editing the picture through a computer program, many digital cameras feature a setting that enables you to actually shoot the images directly in monochrome.
The monochrome setting option simplifies the process of creating these stunning pictures. No software or special knowledge of photo editing is required to produce these stunning images. Depending on what type of digital camera you have, the monochrome setting will be located in the My Colours, Colour or Picture Style settings menu.
Types of monochrome settings
Once you’ve located the monochrome setting, you will see that you have different options. Black and white and sepia settings are offered by most digital cameras. Colour monochrome settings, such as green and blue, are included in some cameras as well. The more advanced cameras enable you to enhance the monochrome mode with various coloured filters. These filters allow you to achieve a number of effects. For instance, you can recreate the effect of a red filter over black and white film. Also, any colours in the subject that are the same colour as the filter can be selectively lightened.
Choosing a setting
Consider the emotion you want the photo to evoke. Sepia tones create a different feel than black and white, and vice versa. For example, a sepia-toned image will present a softer look, reminiscent of antique photos. Black and white, on the other hand, is ideal for photographing strong structural elements for stark contrasts.
Choosing your subject
Landscapes and city scenes tend to feature strong structural elements, such as buildings. Shadows actually enhance these subjects. Sunlight casts the lines and angles with dramatic patterns. To record the most detail possible, use an ISO setting of 200 or less. Low ISO settings best capture the shadows and structures that make for striking monochrome photos.
Gentle, more romantic settings also lend themselves well to monochrome mode. A dream-like or nostalgic mood can be evoked through monochrome photography. Subtle nuances emerge through the variations in tone.
Portraits, of both pets and people, are excellent subjects for monochrome photographs, particularly those done in black and white. You can vary the effect by changing the lighting. Soft light minimises the appearance of blemishes. Directional lighting, lighting which emanates from a single source, accentuates facial features.
Tips for shooting in monochrome
As explained above, the monochrome setting directly captures monochrome images. No colour information is recorded. While colour photos can be made monochrome with computer software, a photo taken in the monochrome setting cannot be reverted to colour. That is, unless you take the pictures in RAW format.
Try using your digital camera’s flash, whether inside or outside, when taking monochrome photos. Although the flash might washout an image taken in colour, that same flash can cast desirable dramatic shadows in monochrome.
Experiment with the different filters before
Mainstream and underground rappers alike are experimenting with horror rap. Even though it may seem violent at first glimpse, it’s the musical equivalent of schlocky horror movies — a field for metaphor, fantasy, and creativity.
Among the leaders of horror rap are the underground rappers Insane Clown Posse, who have brought much attention to the genre with their label, Psychopathic Records. Every year, they and other top names in underground rap and horror rap appear at ICP’s own four-day festival, the Gathering of the Juggalos.
Many top underground rappers will appear, like Twiztid, Tech N9ne, Blaze, and Boondox. But other artists on the bill are also making a name in underground rap. Here are five essential upcoming underground rappers performing at the Gathering.
Hopsin: This L.A. underground rapper straddles the West Coast-style and horror rap boundaries. He’s known for aggressive delivery and insults to mainstream rappers like Lil Wayne and Drake. Recently he’s even started to climb out of underground rap by featuring on a song with B.o.B.
Kung Fu Vampire: Also hailing from California, Kung Fu Vampire acknowledges the horror rap tag, but considers himself to be his own genre dubbed gothic hip-hop. Sometimes performing with a band, he mixes underground rap with live spooky instrumentation.
Wolfpac: This Pennsylvania underground rap group was formed by former Bloodhound Gang member Daddy Long Legs. They’re part horror rap, part horror punk, and are known for crazy live shows. Unusual for most underground rappers, the group also releases its own brand of adult DVDs.
Mars: Another underground rap favorite from California, Mars has been releasing music since he was 17. His style is distinct in that it mixes horror rap with more traditional gangsta rap.
Ajax: Last but not least on this list of underground rappers is Ajax, an upcoming Detroit MC who distinguishes himself from other underground rappers by calling his style “stonercore.” His lyrics are less about horror rap subjects and more about partying.
These are just a few of the next big names in underground rap performing at the Gathering of the Juggalos. And many more underground rappers are being announced as the festival draws closer. For a full lineup and ticket information visit juggalogathering.com.
Horror rap is not the only genre to be found at the Gathering of Juggalos. The four-day summer festival also features a full roster of underground hard rock too. For more about the full lineup of performers, visit the official website of this underground rap festival at .
The costs of wedding photography vary considerably. In fact when researching for the average cost of wedding photography in the UK I was bombarded with such an array of different figures it was almost meaningless. Probably the most credible source I could find was from Moneywise that quoted 839 as an average cost. This amount feels about right so I hope that gives you a ballpark figure.
Bear in mind though its an average so people are spending a great deal more and a great deal less so please dont panic if its a lot more than you anticipated. The Photographer Finder have some incredibly talented wedding photographers with competitive packages less than the average figure above and dont include any of the tips suggested below!
This article is to provide you with some ideas on how to save money on your wedding photography and still have the lasting record you deserve.
Tip No 1 Dont marry on a Saturday
Quite possibly the most effective and easiest way to reduce the cost of not only your wedding photography but also for the rest of your wedding is to not get married on a Saturday. This one factor alone can save hundreds and puts you in an excellent negotiating position.
If you have the typical British reticence of negotiating or haggling, imagine yourself in the other persons shoes. If you can see it from their point of view it makes you a more effective negotiator. Booking a photographer last minute when they have no prior bookings may possibly get you a reduction. Booking far in advance when they dont know how many weddings will occur in that year may also get you a reduction. Booking a wedding on a day that is unlikely to include another wedding will almost certainly get you a reduction.
From a wedding photographers perspective assume they do x amount of weddings a year and 99% of them occur on a Saturday why would they want to negotiate a lower price when they could have a booking at normal cost? However, if you choose another day of the week the chances are they have no likelihood of another wedding so you are giving them an extra booking. The same goes for a venue, choose a Friday in December and you are competing with the Christmas clientele.
Tip No 2 Consider a voucher scheme
For the last few years every time Ive been invited to a wedding there has been a note saying youre company is enough but if you would like to buy us a gift we would really appreciate contributions to our honeymoon with vouchers from such and such travel agent. So why not do the same for wedding photography? Some wedding photographers are already offering this service. Its a great way to cover some or all the cost of your photography or even perhaps upgrade your package. If you were interested it may be worth asking your wedding photographer to put some vouchers together if they dont already offer the
A baby’s first year is an important time to start documenting their life with professional photography. Even though the parents may be snapping away, a portrait professional can capture the baby in unique, artistic ways and produce professional archival prints that will last for generations. Understanding the importance of the task, many parents wonder when are the best months in the first year for professional infant photography. The following are some guidelines that identify what can be expected at the different stages of the baby’s first year or so.
Newborn – The first 5 to 10 days is the best time for newborn baby photography. During this time they are less fussy and their skin will be more clear. Baby acne usually sets in around day 16 and lasts for a couple of weeks, so having the session done before this will work in your favor. Newborn sessions often involve naked baby’s laying on soft blankets or in the family’s arms. Whether the baby is awake or asleep, these pictures should not be missed as they are an incredible way to begin documenting a person’s life.
2 to 3 months – This time is still considered newborn, but the babies are often much harder to work with at this age as they tend to be very fussy. They will have better head control than in the first month, and they usually can smile at this point, but do not count on getting a smiling portrait at this age. Most posing will involve the baby laying down on back or stomach, being propped up, and being held in arms.
4 to 5 months – The infant usually is a fairly good smiler at this point, and has gotten quite chubby. Most infants at this age cannot sit up yet, but they are far better at interacting with people and objects, and are much less fussy. This is a great age for capturing chubby legs and bare bottom shots.
6 to 7 months – Now the baby is able to sit up, and the options for posing are more numerous. Also, the baby is able to smile and laugh at this point and usually does not fear strangers. This is a wonderful age to start going outdoors for natural light baby photography. It is also a great time to include family pets and siblings in the session as the baby is able to sit but usually is not able to move around much – yet!
8 to 10 months – Often by this age, the infant is crawling and the sessions get very active! Consider a white background session in studio for a clean, classic look – but be ready to bring toys to distract the baby to stay in the area of light and continually reset the baby to the right spot. for very active babies a better choice for professional photography may be at the home if these is plenty of natural light so that the baby can roam and the photographer can follow.
11 to 14 months – Between

You will be well aware of the fact that the instrument calibration plays an important role in any manufacturing industry. Behind the origin of any successful product is a perfect calibration. Instrument calibration is not just used in just a particular part of the manufacturing process. Instrument calibration is done right from the design stages of the products itself. The design instruments such as the drafting tools should be calibrated properly to generate flawless designs that will increase the productivity ad reduce the wastage. This article is all about the need for the instrument calibration. Just keep on reading.
The main motive of instrument calibration is to ensure the proper functionality of the measuring and manufacturing instruments. Usually the instrument calibration is done in a manufacturing plant as a part of regular maintenance. All the instruments used in a manufacturing process such as the calipers, oscilloscopes etc will have standard points which will be used as reference points. All the other measurements will be entirely based on these standard points. Any slight deviation in these standard points will lead to a complete failure of the final product. This is where the instrument calibration comes in handy. The instrument calibration makes sure that the standard point remains in the accurate position. This is done through a serious of tests which takes long hours and so usually the instrument calibration is done once in six months when the manufacturing unit will be completely shut down.
Another great importance of instrument calibration is to ensure a continuous work flow. As the instruments will be tested and certified for proper functionality, you dont have to fear about the project getting stopped in the midway. Hence instrument calibration plays an important role in getting a continuous work flow. Without instrument calibration it is merely impossible to run a manufacturing plant with great profits.
Most importantly, instrument calibration is legally mandatory for any manufacturing plant. Though the small manufacturing units are exempted from this, calibrating the instruments will help in getting certification such as the ISO. If you are running a huge manufacturing plant which manufactures consumer products such as the cars, instrument calibration is mandatory. If you ignore this, your manufacturing plant will fall into legal issues.
Apart from the above mentioned necessities of instrument calibration there is one most important need of it. Without instrument calibration, you cannot manufacture quality products that will satisfy the clients. Hence you have to do instrument calibration atleast once a year to ensure the quality of the products manufactured in the plant and build reputation worldwide.
These are only a few of the bunch of benefits that can be obtained with instrument calibration.
