Freshwater fish isolations

posted on 9th of september, 2009

I decided that I wanted to add to my portfolio some freshwater fish isolations for buyers looking for fish identification or as an insert to some projects they may be working on.

Some little tips and tricks I have learned as I was doing this are:

1. Get comfortable doing good isolations. It takes time and everyone has a different method but when it works you'll know it. If it isn't a good isolation it won't even get on the board.

2. Add the latin name whenever possible to any animal species. Some people only look them up in this manner, and often time slang names for fish or animals are very regional.

3. Make the fish look as lifelike as possible. It isn't easy but I try and have the fins up and just before I take...

Very nice hint with the oil. I do that with some fruits and/ or eggs when do photographs. By the way, if you don't wan't to cook a chicken but you wanna photograph it like it is cook, you should use burned oil. :P

Flu Season Ahead

posted on 22nd of september, 2009

The Flu season comes along almost as predictable as fall, spring, and summer.
Although we are paying much closer attention to this year than most.

The H1N1 has the potential to be a different kind of beast. Some say it's over rated and some say it will be a world wide event.

One of the reasons we watch this so close is because this type of event has happened before with devastating results. The Spanish Flu in 1918 killed millions of people and spread accross the planet in mind boggling speed.

We still don't fully understand how that all happened but we know we don't want anything like it again.

I really hope that at the end of winter...
