Top American Groups that Defend Migrant Rights

If the new millennium has shown us anything it is that the darkness and ignorance of discrimination and basic human rights is not a lesson humanity has learned yet. Not even the White House has been spared from a campaign of hatred and aggression.

President Trump has done his utmost not to only to disseminate hatred and portray those of particular colors or races as being less than human. Read moire Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Larcey | Crunchbase

Those belonging to the immigrant and refugee population in America have been the targets for the aggression and negative attention from President Trump and his many supporters. The president’s “1st 100 Days in Office Plan” even included plans to persecute immigrants of specific ethnic groups.

But once again the overwhelming tide of hatred and ill-will only serves to accentuate those forward-thinking individuals and organizations who oppose this sentiment. There are many groups and unions that have banded together to stand for the downtrodden and fight for the civil liberties that make the modern civilizations civilized rather than falling to brutality.

This article will list a few of the most active organizations in operation throughout the US that have established a strong defense for the case of migrants and refugees. Learn more about Jim Larkin:

Sunrise Photography Tips

If you are going on vacation, then do not forget to get some beautiful sunrise shots recommends Schubert Photography. Jim Schubert with the company recommends that you follow these tips.


Wake up Early


Look at a local schedule to see when sunrise will occur. Then, set your alarm clock for at least an hour ahead of time. Even though you may need a headlamp to get to the best shooting location, the reward of awesome sunrise photos will make waking up early worth it.


Research Your Location


While it may be possible to get awesome sunrise photos without going to the location ahead of time, it is still the best practice to research your location ahead of time. When visiting the location ahead of time, use a compass app so that you will know approximately where the sun will rise. Additionally, look around the area for interesting rocks or driftwood that you can use in your photos.


Make a List of Possible Photos


The best sunrise photos are sometimes spontaneous, but most photos require some planning. Therefore, make a list of photos that you would like to capture. Then, work down your list. Make sure to capture lots of photos since there is no cost with digital photography.


The Rule of Thirds


Jim recommends using hyperfocal distance so that everything in the photo is sharp, many beginners find this process very confusing. Therefore, novice photographers can still rely on the rule of thirds. Put the sunrise in the top third of the photo while keeping the sky in a straight line. Place one of the items you located earlier in the corner of the photo to add visual interest.


Look Around


Most beach photos are taken facing the water, but you should make sure to look around you. Often beach dunes or other items spotted when the water is behind you offers beautiful sunrise photo opportunities.


The best sunrise photos require a little planning. Make sure to start out early. When possible, study the area a day or two ahead and make a list of possible shots. Use the rule of thirds or a hyperfocus app to help you keep things in focus. Look around you before the sun rises too high.

All About Taking The Picture

Taking a picture is more than just clicking a button to capture an image of an object of people. It’s about breathing life into the end result. With more tools that are available and camera options that deliver the details that you desire when taking pictures, there are a few trends that you might notice in the future that you’ll want to practice.


The flash is back. There are photographers who are once again using the flash on the cameras as a light source when taking pictures. At times, pictures have been taken in natural settings or have been taken using other sources to light up the background. The flash effect can be used to sometimes better direct the light where you want it to go in the image, such as on someone’s face or to highlight a specific area of the picture that is taken.


Photography uses to be simple and straightforward. Now, there are patterns being used and details that are added that bring texture to a 2D print. There are often layers of patterns that are now seen with more in the future. Bright colors against patterns will also be a trend to look for along with objects that are used against a background to create an image, such as a white cloud against a backdrop of raindrops so that it looks like it’s raining in the image.


There are some people who didn’t want to include tattoos in pictures and would go to lengths to remove them. Now, tattoos make a picture unique. They are meant as a statement instead of something that belongs to a certain group of people. It’s something that makes each picture different from another, even if the same details are used.

Why More People Are Doing Their Own Wedding Photography

Your wedding day is incredibly special, and you want to know that you have pictures available to look back on years down the road. Unfortunately, hiring a professional wedding photographer is expensive and daunting. In some cases, you hire someone for a reasonably high price, only to find that you don’t like the work that they’ve done. Considering the high price of wedding photography and the lack of expert professionals in this field, more brides and grooms-to-be are choosing to do their own photographs.


If you’ve decided that you’d like to do your own wedding photography, there are a few things you need to know. First and foremost, you need to be using a better quality camera. Taking pictures with a cellphone or point-and-shoot isn’t going to deliver the quality that you want when the day is finished and over. You won’t be able to recapture these moments once the wedding day has passed, so you’ll need to make sure that a great camera is being used. If you know of a friend or relative who has a better camera, such as a DSLR, you can borrow or rent it from them.


Another important note to consider when it comes to doing your own wedding photography is to put someone else in charge of it. It just doesn’t look good for the bride or groom to be taking their own pictures, since you’ll find that you give up on getting shots all throughout the evening. Put someone in charge of the camera who is knowledgeable about taking pictures. It might even be a smart idea to ask the person who owns the DSLR camera to take the pictures for you. Even if you pay them to help out with this, it will still be a lot cheaper than what you’d find with a professional photography company. Once the pictures have been shot, you or your friend can edit them using computer software and have them professionally printed.


Photographs From Over 100 Years Ago Give a Colorful Picture of the World

These days, the accessibility and portability of digital cameras have made taking photos and capturing memories a part of our daily lives. However, when I consider the history of photography, I tend to think of it being a fairly selective activity. Cameras were expensive, and could only produce those old black-and-white pictures which just couldn’t compare to what we have now. I was wrong about that. In a recent article, Gabriel H. Sanchez, a photo editor for BuzzFeed news highlighted 23 of the earliest color photographs. These photos showed color images of the world as it was around 100 years ago.


It turns out that the earliest color photographs were taken in 1907 using a camera invented by the Lumiére brothers. They used layers of died potato starch and light-sensitive emulsions to provide the ability to photograph color with their autochrome Lumiére. Other subsequent improvements in photography made color photos even better and more mainstreamed, but these early pictures are a great representation of what the world would have looked like back then.


Evidently, I’m not the only one who was startled by pictures taken with the autochrome. describes seeing such early color photos as a jolt to many people who expect to encounter images in black-and-white. The photographs from World War I which they shared are yet another representation of the past that is now only available to us, visually at least, through pictures. How wonderful it is that we can see it in color!


The history of photography is fascinating. Photographs have remained a vital part of our world for centuries, and they continue to be one of the most effective means by which we capture moments and relive memories. These old pictures are an important part of our heritage and the fact that they’re available to us in color makes them even more of a treasure.
