Diana athill a florence diary

National geographic photography field guide

national geographic photography field guide There are some useful tips in this book, both practical and aesthetic. The theory is illustrated with good examples in the form of beautiful photographs.From one point on, however, the book gets quite repetitive and you hardly read or learn anything new.The guide seems to end up in no mans land. On one hand, it is too technical for people who dont intend to spend money on photographic equipment, and on the other hand too general for those who have the said equipment and presumably are already familiar with most of the advices found in the book and want to learn more details.I am somewhere in the middle - I am familiar with the basic technical theory and I intend to obtain more serious equipment one day, so the pro tips did not bother me, and neither did the summarizing character of the info and the lack of details, since I am not yet that advanced.And I did enjoy the book. It helped me understand some things better, and it is a little step forward, but overall it provides just a basic insight in landscape photography and is rather meant to inspire you to look for more info and try new things yourself than actually teach you anything advanced.It is also a bit outdated, as it focuses almost entirely on film cameras and merely mentions once or twice that such a thing as digital photography actually exists..

Diana princess of wales murdered

diana princess of wales murdered There’s a lot we haven’t heard about the murder of Princess Diana!Belzer & Wayne are back, and with a big conspiracy and cover-up too. Did you know that:Diana specifically predicted that she would be assassinated. This book documents it very clearly in Diana’s exact words..Stories that the driver was drunk were fabricated; he was not.Contrary to the official explanation, Diana’s car was not closely followed by photographers and that was not the cause of the crash. And she was not pinned in the vehicle, but it took emergency crews an incredibly long 1 hour, 40 minutes to get Diana to a nearby hospital; and that’s why she bled to death as a result.The evidence trail and eyewitness interviews prove that the Mercedes was diverted into the tunnel by vehicles that blocked its exit. That the Mercedes had been stolen and had its computer chip changed out.
