kpndc I'm sitting here reflecting on how life teaches us lessons. A lot of you know, I work with some of the youth of DC at a music studio.
We have several depts. that make up our program but one of them is Graphic Arts and Photography. In 2003, my junior yr of HS, one of my vocal technique teachers made learning and growing as an artist really difficult. I was a vocal major, but I wanted to try my hand at Theatre, Dance and just about everything else my Arts school offered. This one teacher hated the fact that I wouldn't devote all my time to vocalization and had me kicked out of the school. Now that I'm older, I appreciate what happened. It made me realize that you have to fight for what you believe in.

I had instructors there that supported and fought for me to get back into the school. Ten yrs later, I'm now teaching his son Graphic Arts & Photography, something that I learned back in 2003. It's crazy how the world works right?
Have a great day! #HandsOnTheFuture

  •   hoghealthyorganicgreen I really need the secret for taking clear fireworks pix- #seriouslylackingskills 1w
  •   kpndc @healthyorganicgreen it's easy once you get the hang of it. You need a sturdy surface, preferably a tripod but any sturdy surface will work. Manual mode & manual focus works best. The key with fireworks is that you have to let enough light into your camera to pick up the sparks. You'll have to use a slower shutter speed. Try anything from 2-6 secs. Keep the ISO low and shoot as much as possible earlier in the show. It's gets really smoky and the pics won't be as clear. Good luck!!! 1w
  •   kpndc @healthyorganicgreen and don't be afraid to zoom in and get close up shots of the sparks. I have a few that turned out great. I'll show them next yr tho lol 1w
  •   hoghealthyorganicgreen Woot! Thanks for the tips! 1w

kpndc Goodbye master. #RIP #MassimoVignelli 2mon
  •   nayoweme I first heard about him in 8th grade, my teacher showed me the film Helvetica and he was one of the reasons why I had this huge phase with wanting to be a typographer lol. I was obsessed with how perfect his lettering was, haha! Rest well, Vignelli! 2mon

kpndc This #MemorialDay enjoy the cookout, the day off, but in doing so, lets not forget the men and women, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers that gave their lives protecting our freedom.

President Obama said, “Our nation owes a debt to it’s fallen heroes that we can never fully repay, but we can honor their sacrifice.” To the veterans on my timeline and in my life, thank you!
