Create Perfect Natural Light By Cheating

Whoops! It appears I’m a day late with my Tippy Tuesday updates….I hope I’m not a day late to my own funeral that would be a serious scheduling conflict.

So my tip today deals with Photography. Yup a bit different from the traditional Mac tips and life tips but still quite useful. So onward.

If you’re faced with nothing but harsh direct sunlight through your open window, you can cheat—just go to your local department store and buy two things: (1) a frosted white shower curtain (or shower curtain liner), and (2) some tacks or push pins. Go to your harsh light windows, tack up your frosted shower curtain, and enjoy the diffused natural light.



Know thy self

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
―Maya Angelou

Keeping Your Desktop Uncluttered

Keeping Your Desktop Uncluttered

Well it’s that time again, Tippy Tuesday. It’s been a busy week looking at new technologies and trying different things and I’ve got a great tip for you which I’ve used since I first moved to the Mac OS.

I first switched to a Mac when OS 10 was called Leopard. I was hooked from that moment on and it’s been great working on a Mac. Over the years I’ve checked out different sources for different tips and techniques to using my Mac more productively. This is a great one that I use often.

If your Desktop is perpetually littered with open windows, try this organizing trick: When moving from one application to another, hold down the Option key before you click another icon in the Dock or on the Desktop. The Option key hides the application you’re currently using.
