BOOK #1: Digital Photography: 23 Pro Tips to Dramatic Digital Photos

The digital revolution has affected every area of our lives and photography is no exception. It’s claimed that today anybody can create great, dramatic digital images with little or no effort.

BOOK #2: Digital Photography: Sharpen Your Eye! Tips and Tricks for Mastering Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and Exposure

You’ve mastered the basic functions of your DSLR and are ready to take your digital photography to the next level. It’s time to trade in your camera’s automatic adjustments and take full control of your photographs.

A good DSLR camera is a powerful tool, offering you the ability to adjust when and how much light it takes in. By following these easy-to-read tips and techniques, your photos will go from awesome to mind blowing!

Cameras work much like your own eyes do. If it’s too bright, your pupils dilate to let less light in. You wear sunglasses in order to make your pupils less sensitive to the light.

If it’s really bright, you might even close your eyes altogether. Your camera has these abilities, too. By learning the nuances of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, you’ll gain as much power over the quality of the pictures as you have over the things that you see with your own eyes!

Photography affords us the opportunity to be creative and get outside ourselves every time we take off the lens cap and pull the camera of its bag.

Unfortunately, if you only take pictures with the automatic settings on your camera, you will never use the camera to its full potential and you will never achieve the kind of pictures you are capable of creating.

We are here to show you and help you understand how and why you should learn the ins and outs of exposure. Exposure is a wonderful way to give your photos new life and meaning in a way that only you, the photographer, can.

While learning how exposure works and benefits your photos, you’ll come to realize the full potential of your camera and its many functions. Exposure itself is broken down into a three simple pieces that work together in order to create the perfect exposure you are going for each time you take a shot. These three pieces are apertur



Gender-Based Violence and Peacebuilding: A Journey to see the Forest Through the Trees (Gender Studies, Violence Prevention, Feminism, Healthy Relationships,Salt … Island, Sustainable Community Developmen)

by Kevin Vowles

Gender-Based Violence and Peacebuilding: The First Book in the Everything Salt Spring Book Series

About the book:

How do we see the forest through the trees?

Imagine growing up in a yard with a high fence all around, blocking out everything, but that which is contained within the confines of the yard. Imagine that there is only hard packed dirt and broken down toys and little to no expectations about fair play and respectful interactions. Imagine that you are smaller and physically weaker than those living with you. Imagine that you are bullied long enough to think it’s normal, okay, even expected. Soon another smaller and weaker person joins the group and they become the new target of the bullying.

Then something happensâ?¦.

The fence is taken down and there are no longer physical boundaries to contain the group. The outside world is full of brilliant sights; expansive green grass lawns, elegant trees, and colourful flowers. It comes as a shock to those who have been trapped behind the fence, seeing the respect between people in the new place as well as caring and compassion. Those who are smaller and weaker are protected and included and though there are rules and written contracts about behavior, it seems unnecessary, when no one is fighting or rejecting the ideals of this peaceful community.

Kevin Vowles is taking down the fences that create a wall between peace and violence.

This book is a radical departure from a traditional look at the effects of gender-based violence and other important social issues.

Kevin has written a series of essays to capture notable events that have occurred over the last four years. In taking down the fence, Kevin hopes that everyone who reads this book will understand that empathy, compassion, education and love are needed for transformation to continue. Kevin will inspire you throughout this book to honor the lives of everyone within your community. This approach, in combination with articulation of the importance of emotional intelligence, allows the reader to build empathy and understanding for damaging, yet common social behaviours. While people still have to be accountable and responsible for their actions, the essence of this book is shedding light and understanding on preventing violence, through understanding that it is, primarily, a socially learned phenomenon.

The Art

Through his experience of working with a community based organization as a healthy relationships/violence prevention facilitator, and living on Salt Spring Island, Kevin was inspired to produce a series of art works, that reflects this journey of transformation. Kevin’s first Art Exhibition on Violence and Peace-Building was created after studying the works of Niki de Saint Phaalle in Paris, in 2014.

The people of Salt Spring Island would like to share their wisdom and experience with the world. If you are interested in the book series and other products that are offered please visit our web site everythingsaltspring.ca. If you enjoy this book please leave a review as we welcome your feedback.

Die Happy: A Mystery in Three Acts

by B. S. Peterson

Die Happy is a mystery in three acts play. The story is about a well to do, if not somewhat shady business man who has gone missing. His family, friends, and business associates are summoned to his lavish home on the weekend of Halloween to investigate his whereabouts. The plot thickens when the body of a dead man washes up in the local bay. This sets the stage for a series of shady characters, dirty deeds, secrets, dead bodies, back stabbing, secret passage ways, double crosses, lies, extortion, and plot twists galore. It comes to an OMG moment during a Halloween party in act III when the characters must dress in various costumes and join in on the masquerade. To make matters even better (or worse) there are two endings. The producer/director has the option of ending the play one of two ways. (Depending on his/her mood.) Either way is fun, fun, fun! The action takes place in a one room set with a cast of six men and three women plus extra non speaking parts. Rated PG-13 for “salty” language.

Tibetan Mandala Coloring: Calm, Relax and Meditation Coloring Books and Templates (Mandala Coloring Books for Adults Book 2)

by David Stewart

Mandalas are works of sacred art in Tantric (Tibetan) Buddhism. The word “mandala” comes from a Sanskrit word that generally means “circle,” and mandalas are indeed primarily recognizable by their concentric circles and other geometric figures. Mandalas are far more than geometical figures, however. For Tantric Buddhists, they are rich with symbolism and sacred meaning. In fact, the etymology of the word “mandala” suggests not just a circle but a “container of essence.”

Simply stated, a mandala is a sacred geometric figure that represents the universe. When completed, a mandala becomes a sacred area that serves as a receptable for deities and a collection point of universal forces. By mentally entering a mandala and proceeding to its center, a person is symbolically guided through the cosmos to the essence of reality. By constructing a mandala, a monk ritually participates in the Buddha’s teachings.

In Tibetan Buddhism, contemplation of sacred images is central to religious ritual, and a mandala is one of the most important of these sacred images. A Tibetan mandala is usually made with careful placement of colored sand, and accordingly is known in Tibetan as dul-tson-kyil-khor, or “mandala of colored powders.” In China, Japan and Tibet, mandalas can also be made in bronze or stone three-dimensional figures. In recent years, a variety of mandalas have been created using computer graphics, although these are usually created by non-Buddhists and are not considered sacred.

The Resting Place: A Play In One Act

by R.W. Webb

Here is the house.

It belongs to Winston and Marie Poole. Happily married for forty-eight years, they enjoy a comfortable, quiet life in their rural home twenty miles outside of town with no problems and no surprises.

Here is the problem.

On his way home from town, Winston fails to return home – sending Marie into a tailspin of panic, dread and worry. Did he have an accident? Is he drunk somewhere? Has he run off with a younger, prettier woman? The possibilities rattle Marie’s frazzled brain until reality melts away into a shadowy haze and Marie finds herself seeking comfort in a bizarre, surreal dream-world that bridges the gap between fantasy and reality.

Here is the twist.

You’d think that when Winston finally arrives – everything would get so much better for Marie, her bad nerves and her weak heart â?¦ but it doesn’t.

It gets so much worse.

From Singer Bardin (R.W. Webb), author of the nail-biting bestsellers “Southern Gothic,” “Earth Angel,” and “Saturdays, At The Bijoux,” comes this gripping new entry into the canon of American drama. With one of the most compelling characters written for the stage in the last fifty years, witness for yourself why this short play has the theater world on their toes. Breaking genres, formulas and taking the dramatic form to an exciting new level – Singer Bardin’s THE RESTING PLACE will soon be considered an American classic in leagues with the best from Arthur Miller, Eugene O’Neill, Tennessee Williams and Horton Foote.



Cadillac Veritas

by James Marren

Most people view hitchhiking as either a desperate move by someone without resources or as a travel adventure by reckless individuals. I’ve fallen into both of these categories during my hitchhiking days. But this story isn’t about getting from point “A” to point “B”. By the early seventies I had hitchhiked more than 25,000 miles across the USA and had a pretty good idea of what was involved. During this same period Conceptual Art was having a resurgence around the International Art Community. As a young artist I was eager to be involved. I decided to combine my artistic concepts with my hitchhiking skills and designed a project that I thought could have some artistic relevance. As with most of my projects, nothing ever turns out the way I expect.
