One of the greatest challenges of professional photographers is to make their subjects fall in love with their pictures. When it comes to amateurs, the challenge is double. And when it comes to “selfies” the challenge is triple.

The main goal of a selfie is to capture the characteristics of your face, along with your most alluring glance,or to catch that intense or radiant look you`re after. In order to bring out the best of your selfies, you will have to become a master of illusion, unless you already have a perfect face. And if you are really serious about this and want to learn the secrets of creating perfect glamour photography, and a selfie is somewhere in that realm, you will be able to get past the status of beginnerin a glamour photography workshop that you`ll find in the rich array of Photoion Courses. But until you decide on going pro, let`s look over some useful tips for capturing the perfect selfie or glamour shot.

Scrutinize yourself objectively

The first step in capturing your charm is to look in the mirror from different angles and to observe all the irregularities and the asymmetries of your face. There`s nothing wrong with that, we all have our flaws. The goal is to find that perfect angle, your best looking one. This is also something you can do when you photograph someone else, but remember that it can be really annoying for them if you do it for a long time.

Make-up is crucial

Some make-up tips such as choosing a brighter eyeshadow at the inner corners of the eyes and darker at the outer ones, or hiding dark under-eye circles with the right concealer will create the most flattering look.

Find the right position

Once the asymmetries are detected, you must choose the proper position so that the irregularities are minimized. Shoot from the side of the face that is the most alluring. If one of your cheeks is fuller than the other, for instance, positioning it further from the camera will create a balance and the shot will be a successful one. While men look great in pictures when crossing their arms, women should better adopt Victoria Beckham’s famous position, with a hand on the hip, which always gives an elegant look.

Find the best, steady position for your camera

Try to create a mini tripod from objects that you have in the room, so that the camera is steady, especially in low lighting conditions. Otherwise, you`ll take only some blurry photos you won`t be able to use.

Many “selfies” are captured with the camera positioned really high above the head, which is a great tip if, for example, you want to hide a double chin, but it becomes a problem whenever you have a tiny face.

Don’t pose, be natural

The pose is nothing but a mask, while the “selfie” is about you. Striving to catch the essence of your personality is what you should focus on when shooting your face.

The greatest challenge for a “selfie” is to capture the energy of the moment and to give a hint of what you feel in that moment. Try to forget for a moment that you are taking a picture and that you might publish it. This will help you be more natural and relax a little bit. Honest feelings are always easier to catch on camera.

Ok, a selfie is not really the perfect example of glamour photography, but the same essential principles are used. So if you want to be able to take great selfie, then go ahead and attend a glamour photography workshop, it will make a difference.

Mosquito and Tick Hazards

Remember when a mosquito bite just meant that you developed a bump and itched for a few days? Unfortunately, that bite may also carry the possibilities of disease.

Mosquitoes are more than a nuisance. We’ve known of the dangers of mosquitoes since 1881 when Carlos Finlay, a Cuban doctor and scientist, proposed the idea that yellow fever was transmitted by mosquitoes. Walter Reed and a workforce of other doctors discovered that Finlay was correct. Mosquito Control reduced the spread of Yellow Fever in the United States.

Mosquitoes carry a number of other diseases, including:

West Nile Virus a disease with long-lasting effects on some humans
Dengue – fever and hemorrhagic fever of four types
Lyme Disease

All of us are familiar with the hazards of ticks. They, too, carry a number of diseases, including:

Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
Colorado Tick Fever
Powassan encephalitis

There are a number of ways of protecting your family from mosquitoes and ticks. Common-sense prevention methods can help. Reducing the incidence of standing water helps stop mosquitoes from breeding. Consider the following sources of standing water:

Untreated swimming pools
Rain gutters
Wading pools, wagons, and toys
Ponds or low-lying areas
Open trash cans
Old tires or wheelbarrows
Bird baths, feeders, fountains

If you find dead birds lying around, be certain to report them to the county health department for possible examination for vector-borne diseases. Be sure your pets wear flea and tick repellent collars. Check them on a daily basis for ticks that may have embedded themselves. Shower and check pants legs for stray ticks.

You can also use sprays and repellents to control mosquitoes and ticks. Use products containing 20 percent DEET to repel mosquitoes and ticks. Applying products containing permethrin to boots, clothing and camping gear will help repel them also. Permethrins should not be applied directly to the skin.

For the health of you and your family, consider arranging for a commercial application system for sprays and mists to keep your property area even safer from these flying pests. There are two methods used to provide this protection:

Barrier spray – for adult ticks and mosquitoes, effective for up to 21 days
Misting system – effective and long-term solution for mosquito and tick infestation

Consider the benefits of protecting yourself from these dangerous insects.

Losing your passport can be a scary event, especially if you are travelling in a foreign country at the time when you lose it.  But even if you notice that you have lost it while you are not travelling, the thought that it is lost can be frustrating, as well as the thought of having to renew the passport.  If you lose your passport while travelling in a foreign country, you will need to contact the U.S. Embassy immediately for help in the matter.  However, if you have lost your passport while in your home country, you can follow these steps to report and renew your passport.

As soon as you realize your passport is lost you should report it immediately so the replacement process can begin.  To report your lost passport, call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778.  Their business hours are Monday through Friday from 8am to 10pm.

Next, you will need to fill out the form titled DS-64 Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport.  This can be found online at the Department of State website or at your local passport acceptance site.  Be sure to use black ink and print legibly on the form.  The form will ask you to report the circumstances surrounding the loss of your passport, and this information will be entered into the government’s lost/stolen passport system.  The more detailed information regarding the situation you give, the better.

After you have filled out this form, you will then need to complete Form DS-11 Application for a U.S. Passport.  This is the exact same form you completed when you originally applied for your passport.  This form can be obtained in the same ways as the other form, either online or at the passport acceptance site.  Fill out the form entirely except for the signature and the date, as you will need to wait on the acceptance agent’s instructions.

Next, you will need to submit the forms in person at a passport acceptance site.  If you are in need of your passport in a rush or in less than two weeks, you will need to contact the National Passport Information Center in order to have them help you locate the nearest passport agency and schedule an appointment for you.  You will also need to pay the additional fees for expediting the process or overnight sending.  After submitting all the necessary paperwork you simply need to await the arrival of your new passport.

If you end up locating the missing passport you will need to submit it to the U.S. Department of State.  If you would like the passport to be returned to you after you submit it, simply include a note indicating that you would like the passport returned to you.  If not, the Department of State will destroy the passport and continue with the renewal process of the recently submitted application.
