… me. Let me explain. The language school I am at here in Madrid had a party Friday evening. Anyway, it’s traditional at these parties for the school to hold a raffle at the end. Prizes include things like 2 weeks of lessons free in their school in Germany if you are studying German etc. Anyway, I won a weeks worth of intensive lessons here in Madrid. I have never won anything like this before, although that probably has something to do with the fact that I never enter into competitions. Hmmm! Maybe I should try the lottery.
I have a question for all you photographers out there. Over the last couple of weeks I have been taking some pictures of Madrid with my digital camera and on several occassions I keep coming across the same problem: how do I reduce glare when taking a picture? I have taken a couple of pictures that haven’t come out properly because of glare from the sun. It’s annoying. If you have any suggestions, please post a comment. Thanks!
If you have Tiger, the latest version of Mac OS X, you can use F12 to toggle your Dashboard widgets on and off. Much quicker than clicking on the toolbar.
What you need is a Polarizer. Check out http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/DigiCam/User-Guide/filter/polarizer.html for more details.
p.s. If you have a simple point & shoot digital camera, you might not be able to just buy and use a polarizer. However, there are 3rd party components that allow you to attach the polarizer. Check with the local dealers if they can help.
