Good Anon here. I love this fandom, and think you guys are awesome. Seeing lots of vitriol spewed from Pyka shippers lately. Thought by now they'd stopped their childish behavior & lack of understanding how fandom works. Read an article yesterday, with comments like "get over it. Pyka is canon.", whining, "I can't find any Pyka fic to read, because it's 90% Myka/HG, and only 10% Pyka" *smirks* Jealous, much, two year old Pyka anons? There is more talent in this fandom than in your little pinkie.

This fandom watches out for its own. 

Yeah I find it pretty hard to take Pyka shippers too seriously when they could go to almost* every single other fandom and find things that cater to their heteronormativity. Wow. So rough. Much sad. Very oppression.   

* I say almost because I’m pretty sure there is almost no hetfic in SuperWhoLock because boyslash. 

10% Pyka sounds like a gross overestimation.

Using only AO3, which is easier to check than others, there are 953 under Myka Bering/Helena “H. G.” Wells (if you take the individual stories of collected one shots like The Vodka Made Me Do It etc there’s an extra 100 or so, I didn’t though) and 46 under Pete Lattimer/Myka Bering. So those two ships have 999 between them, making 4.6% Pyka fics. 

I failed Maths, but I think that’s right.

All I get out of this is that there needs to be at least 46 more Bering and Wells fics on AO3…

I lied. There are at least 4 Bering & Wells ones in Pete/Myka for fix-it or Pete feelings or not-fix-it Helena feels. Reduce that to 4.2%.

But then we are seeing the little picture. While Bering and Wells shippers are connoisseurs of fic and fan-made content and as such use Ao3 to probably a much larger extent than the evidently less content-savvy Pyka camp, we would need to include two other major arenas to properly document these numbers. 

Now; The sheer mountain of Bering and Wells fic posted only on tumblr, for instance. And then there’s ff.net. And you could conceivably find some on LJ too. Now, since all those three have horrendous search options and well, lacking proper meta data tagging, it’s hard to say for sure just how much we dominate.

Even if we allow for some spark of creation on their part, (and as i think Three pointed out, things that are sometimes seen as Pyka art by their shippers were really created by B&W shippers to show the cool pre-the season that must not be numbered) we must factor in the art created also, not just because of the abundance of comment fic, but you know, pictures tell stories too. At which point I’m hard pressed to see how they could even be responsible for 1% of the fanmade ship content for W13, 

Like I said, they have canon, we have the fandom

I feel like I should add this: The Pyka fic on Ao3 with the highest wordcount, image

Yes, you’re reading that right. 17,742.

This means that there are Bering and Wells stories with almost more words singlehandedly than ALL the Pyka stories put together. (Even if you include all (*snicker) the Pyka scenes in the show)

Exposure: The beginning of a great photo
Sill Level: Beginner

Getting a proper exposure is at the heart of all photography. I will now attempt to explain it in the simplest terms possible.

The Basics

You camera has a sensor.

image

This sensor collects light. Too much light and the image is bright or “overexposed.” Not enough light and your image is dark or “underexposed.”

image

There are 3 main elements that determine your exposure: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. 

Aperture

The aperture is just an adjustable hole inside your lens that lets in light.

image

The bigger the hole, the more light it can let in. The smaller the hole, the less light it can let in.

Aperture is measured in f-stops. This indicates the size of the hole. Though it seems backwards, a lower number means a bigger hole. A higher number means a smaller hole.

image

Your lens will be rated with its maximum aperture. So if it is a “17-55mm f/4 lens”—that means f/4 is the biggest hole it can make. Most lenses can go to f/22, which would be the smallest hole it can make.

A “fast lens” is one that has a very large maximum aperture. These lenses have an f-stop of 2.8 or lower. They are great for doing photography in low light. 

A large aperture (low f-stop number) can also give you shallow depth of field. This allows you to make your background blurry to better isolate your subjects. 

image

This is a very desirable thing for many photographers, so they try to get the fastest lens they can. 

Shutter Speed

Shutter speed is how long your sensor is exposed to light. Think of two sliding doors in front of the sensor. They open, let in light, and then close. A fast shutter speed lets in very little light. A slow shutter speed lets in a lot of light.

Shutter speed is measured in seconds. A fast shutter speed will be a fractional value, like 1/500th of a second. A slow shutter speed can be entire seconds.

Your camera might display fractions as just the bottom number in the fraction. So 1/500th would just show as 500. Whole seconds will have a double quotation mark after. So 5 seconds will appear as 5”. 

Faster shutter speeds let in less light, but will allow you to freeze action.

image

Slower shutter speeds let in more light, allowing you to take images in darker environments. With a long enough exposure, you can make night look like day. 

image

With slow shutter speeds you risk your image blurring due to your hands shaking the camera or movement of the subjects in your photos. So if you do a long exposure, you will almost certainly need a very still subject and a tripod.

There is a formula for keeping camera shake from blurring your photo. You just put 1 over the length of your lens. So if your lens is 50mm, you need a shutter speed of 1/50th or faster. Note: This will not stop blurring due to your subject moving. 

ISO

ISO is the amplification of your sensor. Similar to the volume knob on your radio, ISO amplifies the sensitivity of the sensor so you can increase your shutter speed or make your aperture smaller. It makes the light “louder.” However, this can come at a cost. The more you amplify the sensor, the more noise will show up in your image.

image

Some cameras can go to a very high ISO and have very little noise. These cameras are usually frickin’ expensive. As technology advances, cheaper cameras get better and have less noise at higher ISOs.

Getting the Balance

A proper exposure requires balancing aperture, shutter speed, and ISO to get your desired result.

To get shallow depth of field you’ll need a large aperture. So you make your f-stop the lowest number possible. But that lets in a lot of light, so you need a fast shutter speed to balance it out. 

To take a long exposure, your shutter speed will now let in a ton of light. To keep from overexposing you may need to make your aperture very small so the image does not overexpose. 

If it is darker and things are moving, you’ll need a fast shutter speed and a large aperture. But you can’t get a fast enough shutter speed to avoid blur. So you raise your ISO to amplify the light, allow you to get the proper exposure, and keep your subjects from blurring. Yes, it will cause your image to have some noise, but it is a worthy compromise to get the image you desire. 

Photography is often about making compromises. Sacrificing a little bit of quality in one area to create the intended effect with a proper exposure. Learning this balancing act can take years to truly master and in further posts I will go deeper into how to figure out how to get the best exposure possible for any situation. 

TL;DR

  • Exposure is the amount of light captured on your sensor or film
  • Not enough light = underexposed
  • Too much light = overexposed
  • Aperture is the hole in your lens that lets in different amounts of light
  • A large hole is a small f-stop
  • A small hole is a large f-stop
  • A large hole creates shallow depth of field (sharp subject, blurry background)
  • A shutter opens and closes to expose your sensor for different amounts of time
  • A fast shutter speed freezes motion, but lets in less light
  • A slow shutter speed lets in a lot of light, but can cause motion blur if subject is not still
  • ISO is the amplification of the sensor
  • HIGH ISO makes the image brighter, but creates noise
  • LOW ISO makes the image darker, but gives you the cleanest result

Ok… so, remember when I made trailer for Fragments trilogy by heartsways(the first part)? Well, for the last few days I’ve been thinking that maybe the trailer for the sequel is in order… what do you guys think? Well, I actually started working on it already - currently rereading the fic and editing audio parts - but i wanted to know if any of you would be interested in watching the vid?

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again - 

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone. 

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time. 

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office. 

Reblogging hard for that last comment.

I WANTED TO SAY THIS BUT THEN SOMEONE ELSE DID and I’m damn proud.
