Landscape and nature photography is a favorite activity loved by both professional and amateur photographers. Natural landscapes are filled with beauty and at times, change appearances according to the season. To take good quality images that bring out the best of nature, the following are key tips to guide you.

1. Always study your photography subject as chances are high you will take better images of things you understand. For instance, knowing how your subject behaves helps you predict your shots.

2. Use photographic filters to help you capture the best possible images. Polarizing filters darken the sky and create a perfect contrast of the blues in the sky and the white color of the clouds. Neutral density filters ensure too much light doesn’t enter the camera.

3. Make use of natural light to improve the quality of your photos. Nature photos look brilliant in the morning and evening just before sunrise and sunset. Natural light illuminates subjects clearly and evenly eliminating harsh shadows.

4. Use wide-angle lenses as they can show a broader view and give a greater depth of field. They make both the foreground and background sharp as they allow more light.

5. Try to keep everything about the shoot natural. For the best results, strive to photograph your subjects in their natural habitats.

Improving the Indoor Air Quality of a Home

Jeremiah Caughron is an experienced sales professional for Aire Serv, a heating and air conditioning company. There, Mr. Caughron maintains new and existing accounts and provides customers with product and service recommendations. Jeremiah Caughron can handle a variety of customer concerns, including indoor air quality.

When indoor pollutants are present, a building’s occupants may experience short- and long-term effects. Short-term effects may include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, or irritation of the eyes, nose, or throat. Long-term effects may include respiratory diseases, heart disease, or even cancer.

Several biological elements, including animal dander, house dust, mites, cockroaches, pollen and mold can negatively impact a building’s indoor air quality. Many of these elements, which are small enough to be inhaled, can trigger allergic reactions, sickness, or asthma attacks. Children, people who are elderly, or people who have respiratory problems usually suffer the most.

To improve a home’s indoor air quality, here are a few steps you can take:

– Practice good housekeeping. Keep draperies, furniture, and carpets clean. Dust frequently, and keep surfaces clean.

– Maintain heating and air conditioning equipment. Systems should be inspected annually by qualified professionals.

– Make sure a home has appropriate ventilation and air distribution. A qualified HVAC professional can evaluate a home and suggest modifications such as air filtration systems.

– Control moisture levels in the home. Experts recommend maintaining a relative humidity of 30 to 50 percent to control the growth of biological substances.

– Engage a pest-control company. Pest-control experts can eliminate unwanted insects and rodents and their related pollutants.
