I tried to save money by having a company install glass shower doors in my home, but this company was fairly cheap, and the work they did was terrible. I tried to get a refund from them, and they wouldn’t comply, to I had to file a complaint and look into legal action. Ultimately I was able to get my money back, but I still needed to have a glass door for my shower. This time I looked for a better company to install glass shower doors in NJ. I learned my lesson about going for the lowest price without doing any research.

The new company I found had a guarantee for their work, so if I wasn’t satisfied with the job, getting my money back wouldn’t be a hassle like with the other company. They did some measurements and made some estimates on how much it would cost to install the doors. They not only had to put new doors in, but take away the terrible installation that the previous company did. The other company basically made everything more difficult for everyone. Since I took legal action against them, other people have begun to find out about their poor work and will stray away from hiring them.

The installation done by the second company was exceptional. They did a great job and they didn’t take nearly as long as the other company to do it. I was so pleased with their work that I gave them a little extra in their payment. I showed my brother the new glass doors and he liked them so much that he wanted to have a set installed in the bathrooms in his home. Unfortunately, his wife wanted to use their savings on another home improvement project at the time, so he had to wait.

 

Here are another 5 types of portrait photography
Candid’s – This is generally characterised by the taking of the photograph without the subject knowing it is being done. This technique can produce some of the most natural and emotive pictures. It can also be a lot of fun, catching people off-guard can lead to some amusing poses. However it is not always easy to do. You have to train your eye to notice these moments, almost before they happen. You have to be able to move fast to grab them before they slip away. Try and have the camera set up on the right exposure and aperture, so you are ready and just have to point and shoot. With just a bit of practise you can get all this to happen at the same time and take some very rewarding photographs. One thing to remember though is if you intend to publish them you will still have to get your subject to sign a “model release form” showing they give their permission for that. Nudes – This can either be male or female. There is a huge difference between an artistic nude and an erotic or glamour shot. Artistic nudes are simple, all about tone, texture and form. They are not intended to convey sexuality. It can be quite challenging to photograph a classical nude. There is a great reliance on lighting and the right pose. If you consider yourself a competent photographer it is a challenge that you should consider. Artistic Portraits – Try something different to create an arty, unique photograph. For example have the portrait slightly out of focus, making it less formal and more fun. Try a tight crop or a wide one leaving it mostly background. Try different angles for example side-on, or shoot upwards, or even downwards. Different lenses like a fish-eye can provide interesting pictures. Or try photographing it in infra-red, for a unique take on it. The key with this type of photography is to experiment – see what works and what doesn’t. You may find it surprises you. Gritty Portraits – These are almost always taken in black and white. They require the person being photographed to display a lot of their character in their facial features. Often the resulting pictures are fairly grainy. The direction on the light is very important, to maintain that raw quality. Again with a bit of practice and the right model some very characterful shots can be taken. Fashion Photography – This is a lot less about the character of the subject and more about the clothes they are wearing. Often characterised by the full-length shot or the tight crop on a detail. Again as with nearly all portrait photography the lighting and the poses are all important. You almost have to give the clothes a personality and decide what you need to convey to the viewer to sell them. For example you wouldn’t shoot bi-kini’s at a ski resort, or conversely hats and scarfs on the Caribbean? Have a think and try to come up with some different poses and locations to get what you need.
That was a list of another 5 types of portrait photography. As you can see it is a very varied genre. I hope you now have a mindful of ideas, so what are you waiting for – grab you camera and get out there!

 

Bright is better. It’s time to leave the darker solids behind and wear spring colors. Spring is all about bright colors. Peach, robin blue, light yellow, light red, light purple and pink are just a few examples of good spring colors. Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone and try something new! Remember, winter is dull and dark. Spring is bold and exciting.
Take care of your skin. Continue your existing skin care regimen or if you’ve been slacking off, get started again. Make sure you always wear sunscreen outdoors-this is the best way to look younger. Wash with facial cleanser twice a day and moisturize afterward. Exfoliate every other day and drink plenty of water.
Do some spring cleaning. Go through your closet and get rid of stuff you no longer wear (donate, don’t throw away). Try bright colors and floral patterns for spring. And of course, it soon it will be time to get out the flip-flops and open-toed shoes!
Look after your feet. You’ll be showing off a lot more of your feet soon. Make sure they get the right care before flip flop season comes around. A good pedicure will do wonders. Make sure you take care of any calluses or excess skin. And your feet shouldn’t smell!
Exercise for a better you. Last but not least, take care of yourself. Spring is a great time to restart your New Years resolution and live a healthy lifestyle. Exercise at least four times per week and eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables as you can-they’re easy enough to find in the springtime. Don’t worry about losing weight to look good in a swimsuit. Work out and eat healthy for a you that’s better all-around.
Spring is all about making you happy. Shed the ho-hum feelings of winter and move on to more pleasant times. Think about traveling, learning something new or restoring old relationships. Spring is a time to start fresh in so many ways. It’s not just about how you look. How you feel inside also matters.
You should also ask others about your spring look. Ask friends and family for honest feedback about your style and habits. Do you bite your nails too much? Maybe you’re offending someone without realizing it. Use spring as an opportunity to clean and freshen up all aspects of your life. Your attitude matters just as much as your style.
