Five Simple Photo Composition Tips

by David Johnson, PC World

1.  The Rule of Thirds

Most people are at least somewhat familiar with the rule of thirds.  The rule of thirds is ubiquitous:  Every movie and TV show makes almost constant use of it, and professional photographers avoid putting the subject in the center of the frame almost without exception.  To understand it, draw two lines through a photo, dividing it into thirds.  This turns it into something like a tic-tac-toe board, as you will see in the article.

2.  Shift Your Focus

At its essence, the rule of thirds says that you'll get the most interesting photos when your subject isn't in the center of the frame, but rather is positioned off-center, to the left, right, up, or down.  You can position your subject at any of the four intersection points of the third lines, or along one of the four lines, like the birds in the articles example.

Whether it's the VCR, Polaroid camera or — if you're brave enough to admit it, the eight-track — here’s a look back at eight mainstream technologies that have since become obsolete.

How to use your Mac without a mouse

by Lex Friedman, Macworld.com  

 

Power users work their Macs faster than regular folk do for a variety of reasons. More important than a speedier processor is a speedier computist. Since your fingers are nearly always on the keyboard, controlling your computer that way—instead of taking your hands off the keys to control your mouse—can put you into the upper echelon of efficient Mac users.

PHISHING SCAMS - KDSI WILL NEVER REQUEST YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD VIA EMAIL

"Phishing" is a kind of credit and debit card fraud.  By pretending to email from a bank or similar site, scammers "fish" for account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers, etc.  They trick customers into divulging sensitive information so that unlawful charges can be made on the customers' account. 

These schemes change frequently and often have links or attachments with links.  Users who click on the links are taken to a look-alike or "spoofed" sites where they are asked to enter personal data. 

Types of emails are not generated from KDSI and should be deleted immediately! Remember that we will NEVER request your user ID, password or any other personal information via email.  If we ever need that information we will request it over the phone.
