    How to spend a safe Halloween

    It's October! The countdown is on and Halloween will fall on the best of days, Saturday. So this is the year to go all out with your decorating and to host a super Halloween party!

    Halloween is one of the most exciting times of the year for children, but sometimes the most hectic for parents. Nearly 94 percent of children between the ages of four and twelve participate in Halloween activities each year. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) reminds parents to take a moment to consider basic safety precautions that will make Halloween a safer night of fun.

    1. CHOOSE bright, flame-retardant costumes or add reflective tape to costumes and candy bags so children are easily seen in the dark. In addition, carry a glow stick or flashlight.

    2. PLAN a trick-or-treating route in familiar neighborhoods with well-lit streets. Avoid unfamiliar neighborhoods, streets that are isolated, or homes that are poorly lit inside or outside.

    3. NEVER send young children out alone. They should always be accompanied by a parent or another trusted adult. Older children should always travel in groups.

    4. ALWAYS walk younger children to the door to receive treats and don't let children enter a home unless you are with them.

    5. BE SURE children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them.

    6. DISCUSS basic pedestrian safety rules that children should use when walking to and from houses.

    7. CONSIDER organizing a home or community party as an alternative to "trick-or-treating."

    8. MAKE sure children know their home phone number and address in case you get separated. Teach children how to call 911 in an emergency.

    9. TEACH children to say "NO!" or "this is not my mother/father" in a loud voice if someone tries to get them to go somewhere, accept anything other than a treat, or leave with them. And teach them that they should make every effort to get away by kicking, screaming and resisting.

    10. REMIND children to remain alert and report suspicious incidents to parents and/or law enforcement.

    "Child safety is important year round, but Halloween is an especially important time for parents and children to pay extra attention to their surroundings and not let their guard down," said Nancy McBride, National Safety Director of NCMEC. "It is important that parents exercise a few basic safety precautions to help ensure that Halloween is both fun and safe."

    Take best wedding photography to make wedding slideshow

    Have you ever been asked to take photos for a wedding? For some, wedding photography is a casual affair. Take a point-and-shoot camera, then snap away when the opportunity arises. For others, it’s a serious, full-fledged business.


    This article will teach you how to take better wedding photos and then make engaging wedding slideshow with your wedding photographies and upload on website for sharing with more people.

    Take a look at the wedding slideshow sample first below and get inspired.


    Preparation
    One of the most critical elements in being a successful wedding photographer is preparation. You absolutely need to prepare ahead (at least 2 months’ ahead) of time. Get to know the bride and the groom, understand their needs and wants. Some good questions to ask are:

    • How many photographers will there be?
    • What type of photos would they like? Mostly formal group portraits? Or mostly candid shots of the couple?
    • How many guests will there be at the wedding? Are they mostly family members or friends?
    • Which locations will be used at the wedding? A church? Will there be a reception or a dinner?

    Asking pertinent questions like these will help you understand the requirements for the wedding photos and thereby take better shots.

    Locations, Events and Times
    Once you’ve understood what the wedding locations, events and times are, find some time to go scout around those places.

    For a church wedding, I usually like to go inside the church to check out the lighting, d├ęcor and environment. I try to find the correct places to position myself so I don’t mess up during the wedding day. Do take note that some churches do not allow flash photography during the wedding ceremony. So you may need to get a fast lens.
    It’s also important to check out places like the reception area, or the podium where the speech will be made. If there will be a wedding dance, then check out the dance floor and the seating arrangement if possible.

    Organize Your Gear
    This is a critical step. I usually prepare 1 month ahead of the wedding date just to be sure I have time to get any equipment I’ve missed out. Here’s a list of critical equipment to bring for the wedding day shoot:

    • Digital camera: This one is obvious. It’s good to have a backup analog camera as well, just in case.
    • Camera Lenses and filters: Take along any special lenses or filters you want to use.
    • Tripod: Another critical piece of equipment, important for indoor shots under low light.
    • Memory cards: Bring at least two 1 GB cards. I’m not kidding – you won’t believe how many shots you’ll take during a wedding.
    • Portable drive: This is critical in case you run out of space on those memory cards.
    • Assistant: Try to bring along an assistant. It could be a friend or a help at the wedding. He or she can help you arrange the group before you take photos, taking a lot of stress off you.

    On the Wedding Day
    Ok, let’s assume the actual wedding day, has arrived. Here’s a typical sequence of events to help guide you on the wedding photography process.

    At the House
    If you’re taking shots of the bride getting ready, please be early. In fact, you should be one of the earliest to arrive so that you can set up your positions, tripods or whatever equipment you need to use.

    At the Church
    Once you’re at the church, find out where the priest will be standing. Position yourself in an appropriate position. Some critical locations where wedding photos must be taken include the entrance to church, the aisle and the place where the couple will stand.
    And here’s another tip – it’s important not to get too excited about your shots so early on the wedding day. Remember, you have a long day for taking photos. I once did a wedding where I snapped so many photos at the church entrance, I nearly ran out of memory card space by the time the couple exchanged vows!
    If there happens to be a church reception, make sure you’re out to the reception area faster than the rest of the guests, and perch yourself in the correct position. Receptions are a good time to capture candid and fun shots, so knock yourself out.

    Formal Group Shots
    If there are any formal group shots to be taken, be sure your assistant is there to help you. Try to start with the big groups, then slowly remove family members so that you can get the various combinations of family and friends required.

    Cleaning up
    What do you do after shooting the wedding photos? Well, plenty! You need to do some basic image editing, like removing red eye, cropping and rotating. You also need to burn the photos into CDs and DVDs, (usually in a slideshow format). If you’re in the wedding photography business, you should know that you cannot delay this step. Try to get the CD or DVD final package out to the happy couple as soon as you can.

    Conclusion
    Whew! That’s a lot of information about wedding photography. Do remember that while wedding photos are challenging to take, they can be very rewarding. Especially when you see the couple smiling and reminiscing about how wonderful their wedding day was. Try to keep the above tips in mind the next time you’re shooting wedding photos.

    Flash Slideshow Software

    Most of my weekend I was spent laboriously cating and consolidating my digital photo collection over the last 8 years. You would think that my nack for organization would have payed off in this area, but you’d be wrong. ;) It took combing through 4 old hard drives, multiple Ghost images, an Iomega Peerless Drive, and a Terapin Mine to consolidate my photos since 2000. I now have close to all of my 3,000 photos and videos accounted for.
    I love software like Picasa for managing my photo collections and albums. However, I’m looking for something that can be easily viewed over the web. My thought was to use some simple flash-based photo/slideshow viewer to embed directly into the wiki. I’ve been collecting links for some flash-based slideshow applications and figured I’d give them a whirl. Here are the major ones that I’m aware of:
    Flash slideshow maker - A wonderful photo slideshow maker which include 75+ slideshow templates and 220+ transition & Pan/Zoom effects. Enable you to add flash slideshow on website.
    SlideShowPro - This application stuck me as quite impressive. The interface is visually appealing, Very nice! I decided to experiment with this one and see if it suits my needs.
    WorldMap/TripperMap - This blew me away when I first saw it. Slideshows with Map integration. TripperMap supports FlickR right now, but support for other images sources is being developed.

    Amazing India Travel-Slide Show

    Louise and I, Stuart Sims, spend 3 months out of ever year in India.
    India is the ultimate travel experience. And once one falls in love with India one does not have the slightest desire to go anywhere else.. Sure I still want to see Egypt and Istanbul, but having traveled to India for 3 months each year for many years now. I always get the itch during the rest of the year when I am not in India.
    There is no flora and fauna like India's.
    There is no topography like India's (from pristine beaches all the way to, and in between, up to the Himalayas).
    There are no cities as wild and exciting as those in India.
    There is no diversity of cultures in any country that can match India's.
    There is no more spectacular and diverse Architecture than India's.
    There is no tolerance like the tolerance of India.
    But most importantly there are NO people on the planet that can match the kindness, warmth, genuine concern, interest in foreigners, and "Chanti' of the India people. They are as close to divine as you will find on this miserable globe!
    One does not go to India like one goes to the Bahamas, one goes to India to find the inner self and strength, along with everything else.. At times, one wants to pull one's hair out and then Mother India says here, "I have a gift for you". Then one is transported to another realm.

    Go to India and never return! (At least a month for your mind to turn away from your Western value system and begin to see the wisdom of India's ethos).

    Outdoor Graduation Party Games

    Please find below a selection of my favorite and free graduation party games for playing outdoors.
    Scoot Them Away (suitable for all ages)
    This is a good one for a back yard party. Simply line up some empty tin cans on a wall and knock them off using water pistols.
    Volleyball (suitable for ages 7 and up)
    Set everyone up into teams and have a normal rules volleyball competition. For the younger kids you could use a balloon and a lower net. You just need enough room for this one and a marked out area.
    A fun variation is to arrange teams of 2 who have a towel. The ball is replaced by a water filled balloon. The idea is to use the towel to launch and catch the balloon with the towel. The first team to burst the balloon loses!
    Treasure Hunt (suitable for all ages)
    In advance hide lots of items in the garden (or indoors). Tie in the objects with the party theme. Give everyone a sheet with the hidden items listed (or drawn for youngsters.) Time the teams or individuals as they find the items. For example for a pirate theme party you could hide fake coins. Have prizes for the winners.
    Races(suitable for all ages)
    Races of any kind make great outdoor graduation party games. I like the ones where the players wear clown shoes or flippers.
    Sandcastles(suitable for all ages)
    For a beach party or a sand area at home. Have a sandcastle building competition. Prizes, of course, for the most creative and best made sandcastle. Graduation party games for all ages are good!

    Team Graduation Party Games

    Please find below a selection of my favorite free graduation party games for playing in teams. Team graduation party games can be the best fun and bring the party together.
    Blow and Suck (suitable for all ages)
    The first of the team graduation party games is an old faithful that can be enjoyed by people of any ages. All you need is a pack of straws, a ping pong ball or card and two teams of people. You simply pass the ball or card from the front of the team to the back using only the straws.
    Pass The Orange (suitable for all ages)
    This fun-filled game is inexpensive and simple. The only supplies it requires are 2 oranges and people with both a neck and a chin. Divide the group into 2 teams. When the person (not actually playing the game) says "Go!" the people must pass the orange from neck to neck using only chins and necks. The team that can get the orange to the last neck in line the quickest without dropping the orange wins.

    Pass the Sand (suitable for all ages)
    Obviously one of the good free graduation party games for the beach or even the garden. Divide the group into 2 teams and line them up. Have the person in each line grab a handful of sand from a container. They must pass the sand to the next player, who passes it to the next, and so on down the line. When the sand reaches the last player, he/she pours what is left of it on a plate. The team with the most sand wins the game. (You may have to weigh the sand on a food scale if it's close.)

    Cross Dress Relay Game (suitable for all ages)
    For this game you need 2 piles of clothes. One pile would consist of ridiculous looking male clothes including braces, pipe, beard, mad shirt – anything goes really. The other pile of clothes will be equally ridiculous female clothes. This could include tights and bra with oranges etc. You then arrange 2 rows of people, one for boys and one for girls. Each person takes it in turn to dress and undress. The boys would put on the female clothes and vice versa. The team that completes the task first wins. Obviously you need to get your camera ready for this one.
    Bum Shuffle (suitable for all ages)
    Now this is my favorite of all the team graduation party games. Divide the teams into about six people. They have to sit in a line with their legs wide apart and their arms around the waist of the person in front. When you say “go” they all have to shuffle forwards on their bums. If the line is broken then they have to start again. The winning team is the first team across the finishing line.
    Balloon Bang (suitable for ages 5 and up)
    If you have a suitable space with room to run around, or even better outdoors this is a very active game. Brief the teams not to stamp on the person, just the balloons.Split everyone into 2 teams. One team has balloons tied to their ankles with ribbon. The second team have to burst all the balloons.
    Balloon Hockey (suitable for ages 6 and up)
    A great competitive game. Each player has a round balloon and a long ballon to use as the hockey stick. Set up a goal which can be a large box on its side. Players take turns to try and score by hitting their balloon from a set distance into the goal. Give each player say 5 attempts, with the winner scoring most times.
    Superfast Drawing (suitable for ages 8 and up)
    This is a version of Pictionary. Before the party have at least 20 cards with meaningful words on them such as skull, treasure etc. Split everyone into teams and give them pens, pencils and paper. One person from each team comes to you and you show them a card. They return to their team and quickly draw a picture representing the word. No gestures or speaking allowed. Keep a score.
    Feed The Baby (suitable for ages 6 and up)
    Split everyone into teams of 2. Have the right number of chairs, bibs, bowls of fruit puree and spoon. Line the teams up 10 to 20 feet from the chairs. Say go and the teams run to the chairs, they put the bib on one of them who sits down. The other team member feeds the sitting on the puree. The winners finish the puree and take off the bib.
    Double Packers (suitable for ages 7 and up)
    Split everyone into teams of 2. Each person must hold the hand of their partner. Give each pair an object to wrap such as a shoebox. Also give them ribbon, wrapping paper and sticky tape. Start the game and the teams must wrap their present using their free hands. The first pair to complete wins. I like graduation party games where the teams must rely on each other so much.
    Knee Jerk Relay (suitable for ages 6 and up)
    This is one of the rather silly graduation party games. With the right music and noisy atmosphere it can be excellent. Split the guests into 2 teams. Set out a course say 20 to 30 feet. Give the first player an orange or balloon to hold between their knees. They must walk the course keeping the object between their knees and pass it to the next team member. If the orange drops the player must start again. First team to complete wins.
    Stepping Stones (suitable for ages 8 and over)
    Split everyone into 2 teams, pair the people in the teams up and arrange a short course. Ahead of the party cut a big pair of feet from card. In the teams one person is the foot person, the other the stepper. The foot person places the feet in front of the stepper who must only walk on the card feet. They must go up and down the course and then the next pair can start. First team to complete wins.
    Three Ball Relay (suitable for ages 6 and up)
    Different graduation party games. Split the guests into 2 teams. Give each team 3 balls of widely different size. Set out a course. In turn each player guides the 3 balls using only their hands up and down the course, handing over to the next player. First team finished wins.
    Chinese Whispers (suitable for ages 6 and up)
    Arrange everyone in a line. Have a message of at least 10 words ready in advance. Whisper it to the first person who whispers it to the next in line, all the way along the guests. The last person says out loud the message, caompare that to the original. Play music to make it tougher.
    Yes/No (suitable for ages 7 and up)
    A classic of graduation party games. This game requires quick thinking. Set up a small stage area. Bring out each player and ask them questions which they must avoid saying yes or no to. For example do you like milk, have you been on holiday yet, did you graduate. Allow up to 10 questions per player. They are also out if they hesitate for more than 5 seconds.
    Where Am I Going (suitable for ages 7 and up)
    One of the lively team graduation party games. Set up an obstacle course which is safe for the youngest player. Split the guests into 2 teams. Blindfold the first person and start them off. Their team must shout instructions to them to get them round the course. They then pass the blindfold to the next person. First team round the course wins.
    Face Painting (suitable for older ages)
    As well as an guest decoration exercise face painting can be a good graduation party games for teams. In keeping with your theme you can challenge the teams to paint each others faces. That could be as a clown, pirate or tiger for example. Prizes could be for the best overall team.
    Plate Race
    A fun and noisy graduation party games. Mark out a river about 6 feet wide. Split the kids into 2 teams, half of which sit on either side of the river. Gove the first child from each team 2 good size paper plates. They must cross the river, once you say go, by putting down the first plate, standing on it, then placing the second plate in front of them and standing on it and so on. Once they have crossed the river standing only on the plates they pass the plates on to the next one in their team. First team to get everyone across the river wins.
    Googly Balloons
    Put a marble into each balloon and blow them up. Split the kids into small teams and give them some balloons which they must keep up in the air. Perhaps 2 balloons per person. The weights in the balloons makes them act really strangely. This is one of the laugh out loud graduation party games.
    Boat Race
    Divide the guests into teams of 6. Set out a start and finish line. They sit in a line with their legs apart and arms around the person in front. When you say go the crew must shuffle themselves forward to cross the finishing line. The crew must remain unbroken, otherwise they start again.
    Water Balloon Walk
    Divide the guests into teams of say 4. Set out a short course which can have obstacles. Give the first person a filled water balloon and each person gets 2 sticks. The first person walks the course with he water balloon balalnced on the sticks. They hand the balloon over to the next person without using hands. First team to complete wins.
