In teaching, I received many requests to revise photographs. After a while, I have realized that the majority of the errors I find come from the same small group of mistakes that are repeated constantly, particularly by amateur photographers.

Please keep in mind that these mistakes can be beneficial if done well and on purpose. This article on isn’t about those instances, but serves as an observation of the large number of times I’ve seen them done wrong. As a photographer, you need to build a standard skill-base before you can successfully work outside of these standards.

The Most Common Errors

1. Very Strong or Unrealistic Colors
Summary/Fragment: “There is a huge difference between these colors appearing in the photos on purpose from experience and when they appear from poor management of color or lack of knowledge.”

2. The Shots Aren’t Sharp Enough
Summary/Fragment: “Intentional blur can be beautiful, but to be a good photographer, you must control your sharpness and clarity.”

3. The Composition Isn’t Correct
Summary/Fragment: “Most importantly, I have found that usually, when people find something interesting, they stop, take a couple photos, and continue on as if nothing happened. Almost like a robot. Stop when you see something interesting and take a few seconds to think about the best way to capture it. Horizontal or vertical? What is the best focal distance and how far can I move to capture the best perspective? Are there other elements that I can include in the image? How is the lighting?”

4. You’re Not Close Enough
Once Robert Capa said ‘If your photos aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.’ Don’t keep observing from far away like a sniper. Get close with a wide-angle lens on Facebook. This can work for portraits, landscape photos, or any other type of photography. Sometimes it is better to get close and capture what is most important; what stands out in the picture.

5. The Contrast, Exposition, and Level of White and Black Aren’t Correct
Summary/Fragment: “To achieve great contrast can be difficult. Be very careful and don’t exaggerate it, often one of the most common errors.” “Having white and black in the photo is sometimes good. Sometimes you want a bit of detail in the shadows or reflections, but you also want areas of white to capture attention and areas of black to show the weight of the image.”

6. Excessive HDR
Summary/Fragment: “I’m not against HDR, I swear. It’s just that it’s exaggerated so much in its use that it makes me want to cry. HDR can be achieved subtlety and can be incredible when applied well.” Source:

7. There’s No Theme
Photographing beauty, light, and color is very important but sometimes your images will need a little more substance. The good photographers compose through the marriage of form and content. If you are successful in combining a beautiful photograph with an interesting theme, you will have reached the gold level of photography on

Think in themes, ideas, or emotions that can be in the image. Unveil what is that essence that attracts you and develop it. Think in your voice and develop it.

8. The Photos Aren’t Consistent

9. Many Travel Photos and Few Around Home

10. Too Many Pictures

It’s okay to take a lot of pictures. It’s okay to show a photo a day if you take enough, but edit your work until it’s at its best. No one has time to revise and edit millions of photos to find the gems. These gems will be lost if you have to revise a bunch of mediocre photos. All of us take mediocre photos but the best photographers make the effort to hide them. Do a favor to your audience and only show the gems. You want people to ask for more instead of less, because if they ask for less, you can be sure they won’t come back later.

Todd Lubar Shows How Investments Should Go

When it comes to making a name for oneself in the Realty and investment markets, there is one person who might not be on the tip of everyone’s tongue but should definitely be counted as an up and comer. Lubar has managed to grow his company, TDL Global Ventures into a venture that is truly global, becoming one of the top-earning firms in its sector in the last few years.

TDL has long been the dream of Lubar but that isn’t the first company that he has launched and worked hard to find success. Todd Lubar first got into the real estate business in 1995 with his first firm, which was known as Crestar Mortgage Corporation.

Because he was getting in on the ground floor, Lubar had to figure out how to build relationships that could last. This means that he wasn’t able to go the Donald Trump route, where he could lean on the relationships his family forged. Instead he had to make sure that all the relationships he built were strong on their own merits.

Clearly, those relationships were plenty strong as his companies continued to have success as the years unfolded. As the years did indeed roll by, Lubar was able to grow his business success by opening Charter Funding, a subsidiary of First Magnus Financial Corporation. this has become one of the largest privately held mortgage firms in the country. In 2013, Lubar opened TDL Global Ventures, in order to take advantage of a marketplace he knew like the back of his hand after eight years in the business world.

As the 21st century continues to roll on, Lubar is making sure his business ventures continue to be among the most lucrative in the United States and the world. His most recent moves have indeed made him a global power when it comes to his slice of the business world.

Chris Birch on Technology and Fashion

Christopher Birch’s take on fashion and technology is an interesting one to say the least. In his article ” Tech Fashion Trends for the Future,” He describes the trend of technology and fashion through the 70’s 80’s and 90’s. He describes how cassettes and wearing boom boxes went together and how the walkman and ipod became wearable accessories. For Birch, not only did fashion and technology evolved, but they evolved together. In modern day, technology has advanced so far. With this incredible advancement in technology, so does the functionality. Chris Burch further drives this point when he quotes Anouk Wipprecht, “[technology is] like a playground, a place of experiment, and as you dive deeper and deeper into the technology and systems, it rewards you with endless possibilities.” Some of her inventions include a drink making dress.

One old fashioned example of modern day innovation can be found in bicycle helmets. Growing up, many thought it was uncool and ugly to wear bike helmets. Birch then writes about Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin creating an airbag for bike riders to wear around their necks that will explode and cushion the riders from any head injuries. When it isn’t opened up, the rider has freedom to turn their head and use their hands any way they want to without any fear of falling and hurting them self. Birch writes also about how fashion can actually increase popularity of new technology. For instance, Diane Von Furstenberg had Google Glass featured on the runway for everyone to see. This gave Google Glass great popularity by showing that glasses, stereotypically not in fashion, can be fashionable to wear, and these innovative glasses became more popular because of the fashion show.

Christopher Burch is the founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital. His company provides financial consulting, planning, and services, and they do so by being creative. He believes his creative philosophy and approach to business leads to long term positive impact on the market and businesses.

He has had a long career as an investor and entrepreneur, and his vast experience has led him to the creation of many products such as ED by Ellen DeGeneres, Cocoon9, and Nihiwatu. Currently his investment portfolio has stakes in many brands including BaubleBar, Blink Health, Brad’s Raw Foods, Chubbies, Little Duck Organics, and Soludos.


Kabbalah Centre: Generating Greater Self-Fulfillment

In a world marked by numerous challenges, self-doubt and dissociation with divinity are common occurrences. When faced with misfortunes and failures, many people often resort to questioning their capabilities and the existence of a divine controlling the universe. One of the fundamental challenges to environmental conservation is the lack of understanding of the interconnectedness of the various elements in our environment including plants, animals and the water bodies. Therefore, there is need to bridge this information gap to ensure that humans find solutions to their problems in a holistic manner that takes into consideration the interconnectedness of our universe. Kabbalah Centre has over the years played a critical role in bridging this gap through its spiritual yet non-religious programs aimed at helping individuals achieve self-fulfillment by using their higher consciousness.

Spiritual Philosophy

Kabbalah Centre has molded its programs based on the premise that humans only use as little as 1% of their consciousness under normal circumstances. This has led to inadequate understanding their inner self and hence difficulties in developing all spheres of their lives. In addition, such partial access of consciousness leads to lack of understanding of the interconnectedness of the various components of the universe. Therefore, adherents are taught value ethics, their role in the universe and levels of soul among others. Kabbalah teachings incorporates and supplements various religious teachings including Buddhism and Judaism. This expands their consciousness and therefore they end up living a more self-fulling life. By understanding the cause-effect of human actions, adherents have managed to overcome life challenges including insecurities and professional progression.

Modus Operandi and Expansion

Kabbalah Centre works on a voluntary basis: adherents volunteer to join their programs while some kabbalah teachers and staff at the center work on voluntary basis. Moreover, the center has a non-discriminatory policy during admission and throughout their programs. It does not discriminate based on religion, gender or sexual orientation. The traditional mysticism teachings offered at the center is also supplemented with other subjects offered to youngsters who are given scholarships. This mode of operation has seen the organization open several centers across the country including Los Angeles, Boca Raton AND Dupont Circle among others while also attracting even celebrities such as Madonna.

Eric Pulier: Reaching Out Locally and Globally

It is pretty amazing how quickly a family’s life can change with one word. About a year after my wife and I were married, we decided that we were ready for a family. We were discouraged after about a year without conception. A fertility specialist concluded that with some of my wife’s problems, we may never conceive a child of our own. With broken hearts, we thought about other options.

We knew that there were a lot of children who needed homes, so we considered adoption. The adoption agency was so supportive. They helped many couples like us to get a child to love. Our social worker told us that we had to be patient, because finding and adopting the right child takes time. That was six years ago.

After waiting a few months, the call arrived. It was in the middle of December. The social worker said that they had a beautiful 9 month old girl who needed a home. We could not have said yes fast enough. Right before Christmas, we brought our beautiful daughter home. We named her Christiana, because she was our sweet Christmas baby.

Christiana has always been a happy and healthy baby. She is the love of our lives. Our daughter loves life and all the things she discovers. When she turned six years old, we began to notice changes in her. She spent a lot of time resting and did not have her usual energy. Concerned, we took her to her pediatrician. She just said that Christiana had a virus.

When she still did not get better, we took her to a specialist in an out-of-town children’s hospital. After some initial tests, we got the news that no parent wants to hear. Christiana was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder that was like leukemia. We could only pray that it would go into remission with treatment.

Thankfully, she has been in remission and is doing well. While she was in children’s hospital, she got to talk to other chronically ill children Starbright World. This is a wonderful social network that was founded by Eric Pulier, a technical entrepreneur. Pulier is also on the board of the Painted Turtle, a summer camp that hosts children like Christiana.

I read that Eric Pulier is a graduate of Harvard and MIT. He uses his training and innovated thinking to launch numerous technical ventures. As a believer in giving back, Pulier is involved in several local and global charities. He started a non-profit called People Doing Things, a company that researches health and technology. Thanks to the generosity of people like Eric Pulier, children like our Christiana can blossom in the world.
