The importance and usefulness of a skylight filter cannot be overestimated. Rather than a mere appendage, the filter offers real benefits to photographers. Everyone should have at least one. Preferably, they should have one for every lens they own. These should be permanently fixed to the filter thread.
Photography is extremely competitive simply because it seems like such a dream-job to so many people.

The au natural movement being popularized by uber famous celebrities like Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey is one that has trickled down to pretty much all of Hollywood. In the past you may have seen Jessica Simpson flocking to night club after nightclub with family and friends in tow, where as today she seems comfortable arm in arm with her beau John Mayer alone with no one tagging along. The movement centers on public displays of money. Where once entourages were seen as a status symbol marking a celebrity’s rise to fame, now are seen as gaudy and unnecessary. This seems to be a point Sanjaya missed in the class How to Act Famous 101.
There are some companies that provide more than just food and the related basics. You may be able to find local caterers willing to meet all of your event needs. For example, some contract with Host Your wedding at the Smithsonian Washington DC, DJs, and venue owners so you can get it all through one company. They might even offer a discounted rate when you go through their preferred vendors, so be sure to ask the catering company you have chosen if they know professionals who can offer all the other things you need. If you choose a particularly talented business, you might be able to find one with employers who can do it all, rather than using recommended contractors.
Ask to see photos of recent events that the planner has been involved with and ask about what the bride was looking for in the wedding theme. This can give you an idea of how well they can interpret your wishes and make them come to life. Also, make sure the Planner is very familiar with that area and they aren’t from out of town. Hiring a Planner from Anna Maria Island is going to give you the inside scoop on the best beaches, restaurants, and venues and people to talk to.
The Wedding Channel recommends using a white napkin with a small amount of water and dabbing that on the dress in order to help remove or minimize the stain. Remember not to rub the stain or to use too much water on the dress.
Studio photography is rewarding artistically because you have complete control of your lighting. It is the place to play and learn how light effects the way things look. I enjoy shooting in the studio, I would encourage you to get some lights and have a go, it really is not that expensive these days if you buy second hand gear. I have never brought a new light because the good brands go on forever. Happy days!
