Photography 101

Here is a video that I have found to be very informative as well as entertaining. If you are anything like me, I just love to dab into anything artsy and creative. In my past life I have always used whatever camera was available to point and shoot. Now that I have taken an interest in film, I have discovered the DSLR. While in class I was feeling a little squirmish when my instructor spoke about aperture, f-stop, shutter speed, shallow depth of field and ISO. I don’t know which is most intimidating all the information on the display or trying to understand all the features to take good pictures. How in the world do people remember all that stuff especially when you have to remember high numbers mean low light and vice versa. However, here is a video that will show you what all that details. Hope you enjoy. These cameras cost too much not to know how to operate them.

Kanye West Suing Co-Founder of YouTube For Uploading Proposal Video

Originally posted on I CAN REPEAT IT:


Kanye West is throwing another tantrum. This time he’s taking it to court. And perhaps he has a point?

The rapper, who likes to protect his privacy, is suing YouTube creator Chad Hurley for uploading a smartphone video recording of Ye proposing to Kim Kardashian.

It seems Hurley has been trying to find a second success with MixBit, his latest project where he uploads celebrity videos.

Needless to say West wasn’t happy that the video was used without permission or compensation. In fact, suggests ValleyWag, the Kardashians were probably hoping to keep all the footage from Kanye and Kim’s “Proposal in the AT&T Park” under wraps until they could make use of it.

According to TMZ, Hurley violated a non-disclosure agreement by publishing the video, which was immediately the longest and most detailed look at the lavish ballpark ceremony.

Kanye didn’t seem to mind a few Instagrams, but…

Who New! Sweet Brown becomes an overnight sensation and has become a new person with a new look and a new life. What could have been a near death experience actually turned into a life changing event. Talking about perfect timing for someone who has never taken any acting lessons to become a Youtube celebrity with over 5 millions views. It wasn’t long after the Youtube interview that agents were knocking at her door. Before you knew it, she was a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel Live Show. Not only that, Ms. Sweet Brown has made it to the head of the class by surpassing everybody in line to meet Tyler Perry. Yes, she will be partaking in Tyler Perry’s,A Madea Christmas. She has become known for her infamous saying “Ain’t nobody got time for that”. Well, lets just say, Ole Sweets no longer has to ever worry about not having a cold pop in her box. Congratulations! Another Youtube sensation.

Women working together – Networking

Did you remember to say THANKS?


As most of us take time to catch-up on some much needed R&R on this Labor Day, I am reminded that Labor Day has many different meanings for each of us. For some, it signifies the end of Summer and outdoor gatherings with family and friends. For others it indicates the beginning of NFL and college football seasons or even the last day of the year when it’s fashionable to wear white. And for retailers, it indicates the largest sale day of the year, second only to Black Friday.

Whatever this holiday signifies for us in our personal lives, it seems equally as important to understand the true purpose and intent of the day. Labor Day was originated to celebrate the economic and social strengths and contributions of workers to the U.S. economy. In fact, parades were generally held to allow the public to demonstrate their appreciation for the workers who kept the economy bustling.

How appropriate even today! With the economy still in recovery, we might each be reminded to take a moment to express THANKS to those in the small business sector who consistently contribute to the growth & stability of our communities, create jobs, and provide services/products even when big businesses are here today, gone tomorrow. So, in your leisure time today ponder and ask yourself, “When was the last time I said THANKS to a small business owner? Better yet, when was the last time I demonstrated my thanks by buying from a small business owner?”

Supporting small businesses does not have to cause a great interruption in your normal shopping habits… you can contact a small business owner to purchase jewelry for a special event, purchase flowers from a local florist shop, hire a local entrepreneur to speak at your next event, purchase candles from a local candle maker, or support a local author by ordering copies of their book for a book club event. I guarantee your local small business owners will be happy to oblige in getting you What you need When you need it!!

To all of the hard-working Solopreneurs, Micropreneurs, Mompreneurs, SHEpreneurs, HEpreneurs, Entrepreneurs and Small business owners, I say THANKS and Happy Labor Day.

Have a positive, productive & FEARLESS week!

Warm regards,

Cheryl Wood
