The theory of exposure and metering, light, colour and flash is explained and there's practical advice on composition and focusing. Project ideas include success with flower photography, capturing the textures of materials such as bark and lichen, abstracts from everyday objects, photographing insects and studio work with food and jewellery. Information on post processing explains file formats, raw conversion software, adjustments to contrast, brightness and shadows, understanding levels and curves, white balance and saturation, with helpful tips on removing imperfections, cropping for impact and printing.

This book covers everything you need to build your first Hadoop cluster and begin analyzing and deriving value from your business and scientific data. Learn to solve big-data problems the MapReduce way, by breaking a big problem into chunks and creating small-scale solutions that can be flung across thousands upon thousands of nodes to analyze large data volumes in a short amount of wall-clock time. Learn how to let Hadoop take care of distributing and parallelizing your software—you just focus on the code; Hadoop takes care of the rest.

The Liberation of Painting: Modernism and Anarchism in Avant-Guerre Paris
The Liberation of Painting: Modernism and Anarchism in Avant-Guerre Paris by Patricia Leighten
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0226471381, 022600242X | 269 pages | PDF | 13,4 MB

Young has created a perfect blend of the abstract and the literal, the natural and the artistic in her designs. The hats, the scarves and cowls, the shawls and capelets, sweaters, and household items are reinterpreted as beautiful, one-of-a-kind knitted pieces.
