Minimalist Photography Made Easy

09 Jan, 2014 0 comments All life areas

Time and again, photographers have turned to the concept of minimalism to experiment with their work and add elements of drama and boldness to their photography, incorporating the minimalist idea of “less is more”. Minimalism as a way of life emphasizes on simplifying the way you live by eliminating things you don’t need. Bringing concepts of lifestyle into photography is one of the many ways in which both amateurs who are keen to learn about photography, as well as professionals have explored the world we live in through their lens. Photography as an art is about a lot of things, one of them being your own perception of the outside world. The act of clicking a picture is 80% perception and 20% technique, and although minimalist photography is all about reducing distractions and elements in your pictures, it has a lot more to its technique than meets the eye. Here’s a simple guide to getting started on minimalist photography:

13 Virtues of “The First American”

01 Jul, 2013 1 comment Career

Among the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, one name stands out distinctly above the rest – that of Benjamin Franklin. Also referred to as “The First American”, he was undoubtedly the foremost American of his day with a vision of unity and diplomacy unlike any other individual.  A scientist, diplomat, inventor, philosopher and businessman, his talents were multifarious, yet he remains to be a rather mythical figure in the popular imagination of contemporary world history. Franklin was a man of many virtues, and his emphasis on a living a virtuous life is reflected well in his autobiography – he lists out 13 virtues through which he’d sought to better his character. Throughout his lifetime, he practiced these virtues in one form or the other and while he did fall short of his plans at times he always believed in the strength of the attempt made. Franklin also believed in working on one virtue at a time, while “leaving all others to their ordinary chance”. The 13 virtues as developed by Benjamin Franklin were:

How to land the dream job

20 May, 2013 0 comments All life areas

We all wish to land that dream job; the one that will play to our natural strengths and feed our souls the same way that ice cream quenches the heat on a hot afternoon. However, not all of us are lucky to get that job, or even come close. Have you wondered why?

See, a lot of people think that a high earning job is the way to go. Rightfully so, the bills have to get paid, right? But we sometimes develop tunnel vision in our quest for that high paying job that we forget to actually sit down and internalize what we really want out of a job. And that right there is the first step to landing your dream job. Actually sitting down and self-examining yourself to come up with a list of ideas that can become careers, and which will also inspire you to become better. Filter your dreams based on the aspirations you possess, the level of education they might require, and their earning potential. Other factors you can consider are the job’s ability to give back to world, working for someone who values you as an individual, and having to balance work with personal life/family.
