Fit and Fashionable

Fit and Fashionable is an online magazine website designed using the Yii Framework, which is set up slightly different from WordPress but allows for much greater control over databases and tables.

Understanding Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO

Understanding aperture, shutter speed, and ISO should be the first thing every new photographer learns. Being aware of how they work together will not only help in getting proper exposure in a shot, but will also lend to different artist options you might want to make as a photographer. For instance, let’s assume you’re taking a picture of a waterfall. Do you want to see each speck of water as it splashes on the rocks, or would you prefer the water look more like a steady and smooth rush as it passed over the rocks? Or maybe you’re taking a portrait. Do you want everything in the picture in focus, or just the person you’re photographing where the background is a smooth blur?… Continue Reading

Is Your WordPress Plugin Great or Junk?

It saves the cost of hiring a web designer, and for web designers it can save them time on getting a website up and running just the way you want it.

Responsive vs Dynamic Web Design

When you’re looking into having a website built, you may be asked by your web designer if you’d like it to be a dynamic website or a responsive one. This question usually relates to making the website mobile friendly and the different ways to do so as dynamic websites and responsive websites achieve those results in different manners. Granted, there are other reasons besides mobile devices to maybe use a dynamic website but for many people it comes down to that alone. It’s important to understand the difference between the two as both have pros and cons depending on what you’re planning to do.

We shot a few random photos with a couple of different outfits with Stephanie for a possible zed card. These happened to be a few of our favorites from the shoot in this location. A few were taken on the patio of a restaurant that was closed during the daytime. The colors of her outfit went along nicely with the decor and the colors of her surroundings. The other outfit was shot on a set of stairs not far away where we tried shooting with a simple tank top and jeans…. Continue Reading
