Taylor Swift vs. Apple...Taylor WINS
Taylor Swift just went up against the biggest company in the world and WON. That's unheard of. No one has ever had that kind of star-power before. But now, Taylor Swift has it. Taylor was pissed that Apple thought it was going to get away with not paying the artists whose music would be played on their new music streaming service for the first three FREE trial month period. AKA BS. Taylor wasn't having any of that so instead of dismissing it since it really didn't hurt her either way, she pounced. Attacked politely. And claimed an utter victory! This will definitely go down in the history books!!! So here's how the battle went down: Swift tweets at Apple by attaching a letter of hers from Tumblr. Taylor speaks politely and confidently ending with a snippy, "We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation." AND TAYLOR STRIKES AGAIN. Not only does Taylor get an outpour of support from her millions of fans, but she also gets backing from major celebrities and recording studios. Like woah. Taylor Swift then gets a personal call from the Apple VP himself as well as this personal tweet. And as the world watches...everyone gasps because for the first time in Apple's history...Apple loses. TAYLOR FOR THE WIN. The media is celebrating on every major platform known to man. Everyone's shocked she did it and it only took 48 hours. Insane. Taylor attacked and conquered the most powerful company in the world by posting a message to Tumblr. She's stronger and more powerful than ever and now everyone knows it. And Swift thinks to herself, "All in a day's work." NBD
Why Shutter Speed is Important
Shot during the 2016 Old Spanish Days Fiesta - La Fiesta Pequeña - on the steps of the Old Santa Barbara Mission - of the Spirit of Fiesta Alexis Simentales during her main performance. Photography is always about choices... you have several variables that you can control (camera controls) which give you creative/artistic leeway in how you present the subject of your photo. Besides the obvious variables such as the frame you choose and when you choose to press the shutter release - you can control where your main point of focus is - if your subject is frozen in time or blurred to give the illusion of movement - and you can choose how much of your subject is in focus including their surroundings. For her performance on the steps of the Old Mission in Santa Barbara - I knew that I'd be dealing with a fairly difficult shooting situation. This was my 3rd straight year of covering this event - so I went into this performance knowing exactly what to expect. I knew that Alexis was going to dance Flamenco and use a white intricately woven shawl while wearing a pure white lace dress; the dress and color is traditional for the Spirit of Fiesta. I also knew that the lighting would be bright/hot spot lights with large gaps of shady areas - colored lights (yuck!) and the occasional HMI light (which will phase and shift everything green while appearing to make everything look like it has stripes). I also knew that I wanted to capture EVERY detail of her dress and freeze her shawl in time - letting you see every thread. To do so I'd need a very fast shutter speed - 1/2500th of a second or greater. The first consideration was the lens I chose. I went with the Nikon 300mm f/2.8D AF-S II lens using Nikon's Silent Wave Motor focus system. It's a VERY fast to focus lens. The 300mm prime focal length allowed me to get close to my subject while standing 50-60ft away from her in the wings - off to the side of the stage where non-broadcast media were placed... this performance is televised live each year so the local TV station has several camera crews working in and around the stage. I have to set up behind their work lines - which puts me pretty far away from the action. The fast f/2.8 aperture means that I was able to open the lens up all the way to let as much light in as possible. This allows me to go with a higher shutter speed at a lower ISO. DOF is NOT an issue at this distance with a full-frame (FX is Nikon's designation for Full Frame) sensor camera. Because typically a 300mm lens at f/2.8 would provide inches of focus depth for a close subject - you have to be careful picking a super-telephoto lens with a fast aperture if shooting close objects. But at the distance I was placed from my subject - I had about 3 feet of focus depth. The further away you are from your subject - the more depth of focus you have around them before focus drops off. The NEXT important decision I made was to limit the ISO range of my camera to nothing greater than 6400 ISO. At 6400 with noise reduction - grain is manageable and sharp detail achievable. I then chose a shutter speed that would create a ONE FULL STOP UNDEREXPOSURE. This - in these lighting conditions - ended up being 1/3200th of a second. 1/3200th of a second was the perfect shutter speed to freeze the movement of her shawl in time and allow the image to display the intricate hand-woven design. I chose to under expose the image because bright white fabric will blow-out in bright lighting and detail will be lost that I feel is important to the story being told in the image. By under exposing I ensured that all of the beautiful hand-laid lace work in her dress and every fiber of her shawl would be clearly visible. The Nikon D4s has the best latitude of any DSLR I've ever used. Latitude is the ability to see detail in both the darkest and lightest areas of a frame - the difference between these points being measured in f-stops. Move latitude beyond the tolerances of your camera (or film stock if you are old school and using film) - and you either loose detail in your shadows or in your highlights (or both if you've completely messed your exposure calculations up). I didn't really care too much about the details in the dark mountainside behind her - for visual contrast and establishing the composition of the frame I actually preferred the background to be black or very dark (there is some twilight blue sky visible in some of the photos) - what mattered most to me was keeping the detail in the highlights. Which brings me to the crux of finding the solution to the variables I face and bridging those variables to accomplish the end result I had set out to accomplish - you need to understand your camera, lens(es), and their limitations. You need to understand exposure and how to calculate an equivalent exposure - that if x shutter speed with y ISO and z aperture gives you the exposure you desire - what happens if you need to change your shutter speed? How do you adjust the other variables to get you the same exposure output as you originally desired? There's a lot of math in photography. It's not at all a bad thing. But I often tell young photographers starting out that it's not the gear you have that makes you a pro - it's knowing how to use the gear you have to get the shot you need (or have been hired to get) every time by making smart choices. Shooting 500 photos and hoping one will be what you need is NOT professional. Shooting 10 photos and all 10 of them being what you need - that's what a pro does. Go out there and take a bunch of photos and figure out what works and doesn't work for you! KNOW up front what you want to capture and then plan for it. That way if you nail it - you KNOW that you nailed it. It wasn't luck or random chance. It was planned for and accomplished. Like with anything in life - once you know the rules and know how something is done - then you can start adjusting things to better fit your personal way of doing things. But if you don't understand the ins and out of what your are doing - how do you know if you've made the best choices to accomplish your goals? I have over 25 years of experience as a photo journalist & professional photographer. I have a bachelor's degree in film production & cinematography. I am a Nikon Professional Photographer and use Nikon cameras, lenses, and accessories exclusively.
How to Create Copyable Text Widget In Flutter?
Flutter is the free and open source framework developed by Google for building beautiful and multi-platform applications from a single codebase. In other words, it is Google’s portable UI toolkit for developing applications for desktop, web, and mobile from a single codebase. Organizations and developers worldwide use flutter because it works well with the existing code. Even though many exciting things are available in the flutter, developers often confront specific issues with this platform. One of the common issues in flutter is unable to copy the text content. By default, users cannot copy the text content of the flutter app. But, sometimes, users want to copy text content to the clipboard. This is where the text widget comes in. It allows the users to display text in the flutter application. It is also used to showcase the purpose of the component in the mobile app. When you long tap on the text widget, a tooltip will show up with a copy. Once you click on the copy, the text content will copy to the system clipboard. Keep reading to know how to make a copyable text widget in a flutter. What is a text widget in flutter? The text widget is one of the most widely accessed widgets in a flutter. You need to use the text widget when you want to display text in flutter applications.

Emojis Are Not Made The Same
Not all devices are alike. Apple, Android, and Windows, to name a few, are very different operating systems and that key difference also makes for very different variations of emojis. The most popularized Unicode Consortium, or the body that selects which emojis will make their public debut, is the Apple version. They are used in marketing campaigns, commercials, apps, texting, food delivery, etc. However operating systems like iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry, Samsung, LG, etc. don't always have the same variations of emojis that the general public is accustomed to. This leads to an ultimate dilemma, emojis are basically a language all their own and somehow they are getting lost in digital translation. Thanks to Yahoo tech, a comprised list of varied emojis from device to device: 1. Woman With Bunny Ears You may recognize this emoji normally as the Bunny twins, tap-dancing girls, showgirls, or any of the other various nicknames. However when you transfer over to Android, you'll be in a surprise that the emoji becomes a yellow gumdrop looking face with a brown wig and bunny ears. The dynamic duo is no longer, which probably leads to some confusion at Halloween for Android users who are curious as to when there was an emoji of two Woman With Bunny Ears. 2. Colored Hearts This one is all about design. Apple keeps the hearts very uniform, vibrantly colored, and as basic as can be. For Android, the emojis hold a lot more meaning while also being somewhat cheesy. There is practically no color variation and I don't even know what to think about the fuzzy heart. Emojis are supposed to be playful and I think Android really missed the boat on this one. 3. Watch Obviously iOS looks classier but I am definitely a bigger fan of Android for some reason. I think sometimes less is more and I think it translates well in this instance. After all, a watch is a universal symbol so it's really hard to mess that up between devices. If anything, the emojis from device to device just show a different kind of watch that is solely exclusive to it's own device which seems cool in this example. 4. Eggplant You know exactly what this means if it's sent in iMessage. And you know exactly how hilarious this emoji can be because let's be honest, there is really no everyday use for an eggplant so you might as well spice it up a bit if you know what I'm aiming at. Now as for Android, it's a poor example of an eggplant to begin with but there is no way that it'd ever be used for alternative purposes within messaging. Just no way. 5. Slice of Pizza Okay Android wins on this one. The iOS version looks like a horribly designed emoji that is trying way too hard to be life-like. I appreciate the pic-art look of Android's emoji in this comparison. However, Dominos Pizza is using the iOS emoji in their brand as you can order a pizza now just sending that emoji. After all, that's pretty clever but the pizza emoji could get a generic facelift. 6. Rowboat This is a BIG difference. iOS looks certainly more appropriate and attractive on an interface. The Android immediately signals a date instance which could be totally misconstrued. Also Android needs to keep up with the times as emojis no longer have one option -- with LGBT and racial skin tones being introduced, their emojis need to be updated. Emojis are great because they include everyone and the rowboat needs the same. 7. Glowing Heart Either way, they both accurately depict what you're trying to show. Personally I like the iOS version more however the Android heart isn't horrible. A heart is a heart no matter how you dress it up. Good work to both. 8. Pistol/Gun Windows is the only operating system that doesn't include a gun that looks like iOS. Instead they've opted for a less serious space gun that could easily be more appropriate for Star Trek than anything else. With weapon emojis being taken more and more serious in the media, Windows will have to figure out how to not cause any trouble for its users who may be using their version of the gun emoji playfully while it will be translated into a more serious message. 9. Love Hotel Well to be honest, I've thought the 'H' on iOS stood for hospital and the heart symboled health. Apparently that's the exact opposite of what it meant. Windows does a much better job at representing this but they are both confusing. It wouldn't have killed them to spell out "hotel" on the building, you know. 10. Mobile Phone We get it, you love your own phone. 11. Donut Hmmm these are all very stereotypical of the interface they appear on. To be honest, Windows looks the least like a donut and I personally am not a fan. Android does a pretty good job and iOS is the most life like. I guess this one boils down to pure preference but it should be understood between each device fairly easily. I guess Windows doesn't like chocolate frosting. 12. Alien Monster Well these have very different connotations from the get-go. For iOS, most believe this emoji is a representation of an arcade game that you use with a joystick. For Android, however, it's actually alien monster that looks like an evil version of Pearl from Finding Nemo creepily ready to say "Awww you guys made me ink muhahahahahha!". We have an alien emoji already in iOS, why do we need this one? 13. Tennis Either way, they fit the bill and do a nice job at symbolizing. 10 for 10 on both.
