This guy has helped me so much, it might be the best thing that you ever did
 
Planning an update to your business, what is your approach? You will need a new perspective and requires new thinking. It's amazing how quickly you can implement a new strategy once your perspective is changed. Reach out and talk to me if you would like to discuss it.

1st Official Trailer: Spring 2014 IMAX Film "In Saturn's Rings"
Massive +NASA Photos of Earth, Mars, Saturn & Beyond! Transformed into Epic IMAX Film! | Highly Recommended!
To watch this awe-inspiring film trailer in 1080p HD or 4K Ultra HD, choose "original" under YouTube quality settings (you need a fast computer and a 4K monitor to view it full resolution) at: http://goo.gl/2Nssm

Official "In Saturn's Rings" Film Website:
http://www.insaturnsrings.com

Director Stephen van Vuuren used more than a million photographs and numerous film techniques to create the effect of flying through space around Saturn and among its rings!
The film is dedicated to Stanley Kubrick & Carl Sagan.

"This film was 100% created using only flat 2D photographs (often hundreds or thousands per frame) stitched together for massive hundred megapixel+ resolutions that are scaled and zoomed using techniques developed by the filmmaker, based on Ken Burns and 2.5D photo animation processes!

A computer is actually not even required to do this - it could all be done exactly using photoanimation techniques from 100 years ago!: http://goo.gl/bfhzI

No 3D models, texture mapping, 3D CGI, camera projection, cloning or painting or any other VFX techniques are used - every pixel is what was captured in the photograph. The photographs are processed as minimally as possible - much less than your average Instagram photo."

While listening to the Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber one day in 2006, Director van Vuuren conceived the idea of creating moving images of Saturn using a pan and scan 3-D effect he had seen in a 2002 documentary called The Kid Stays in the Picture. The technique involves creating a 3-D perspective using still photographs.[3] (The Adagio for Strings would later become part of the soundtrack for In Saturn's Rings.)

I had a totally different shoot this week, to photograph cats and dogs being sterilized by the Animal Rescue Organisation. What a pleasure and fun shoot!

Here is one of the images captured

Nice photograph. In this case it would be better without your logo.

                       Awesome  Baby Stroller Ever
A survey of 1,000 British dads found that a third of them felt embarrassed when pushing their babies around in a regular baby stroller. More than 76% of them would also be more willing to push their babies around if they had a higher spec stroller.
        Škoda created the ‘vRS Mega Man-Pram’, a giant baby cart with 20-inch wheels designed to be the “ultimate baby transport experience”.

Start with where you are stuck, what is that obstacle that is not allowing you to move past a certain point. Clear the way and you move forward in leaps and bounds.

Introduction
Hi I'm Dan Edwards! I was born and spent the first 25 years of my life in Oxford England but have spent the last 9 in Cape Town South Africa and don't intend to move anytime soon

I love my wife, my family, my dogs, my friends, my camera, generally in that order but wife is always first

I studied photography at school and wasted way to many lunchtimes in a darkroom

I quit photography after school as I couldn't afford a darkroom of my own, it took me until I reached 33 to realize I should have begged, borrowed, or stolen the money to buy it anyway

I love sport, I also love food, which means its often harder than I would like to participate in sport

I studied and trained as a mechanical engineering fitter, it was because its what my dad did, how I ever came to live in South Africa being a photographer amazes me, but I love what I do

I love decent coffee so offer me instant only if you have a thick skin

I shoot with Nikon kit, I always wanted a Canon but Nikon had the best deal at the time I bought my first DSLR, I'm glad they did as I adore their products and will be loyal to the brand unless Canon offer me lots or money, free top end kit, or both

I love social media, its amazing how many cool people you can meet without ever meeting them, its making the world a small village and I love the intimacy of small villages

I read, a lot, but not fiction, my wife tried to get me to read fiction once, the book is still on the bedside chest, I read to learn and I just love to learn

I hope to meet you one day
