What Does Dad Really Want for Father’s Day?

By WRSH on June 4, 2014 - Comments off

NY Fathers DayNix the necktie and skip the socks!  What dads really want for Father’s Day can’t be bought in any department store.  Instead, recent polls show that what most dads really want for Father’s Day is to spend quality time with their families.  They want to feel like they matter as much on Father’s Day as Mom matters on Mother’s Day – and polls show that most dads have family members who agree with them.

How can you make Dad feel like a million bucks on Father’s Day without wasting your cash?  Try these Father’s Day celebrations:

Go out to Dinner with the Family

Gather the family and take Dad out to dinner.  Make him feel like the guest of honor by taking care of all the details beforehand, from making the reservations to appointing a driver to packing along the credit card.  For an extra touch, ask the restaurant if you can have your father’s favorite drink or appetizer waiting at the table when he arrives – or if you can drop off a small gift beforehand for the wait staff to surprise him with.

4 Best Photography Locations in NYC

By WRSH on May 28, 2014 - Comments off

New York PhotographySummer is one of the best times to capture the many sights of New York City, whether using your smart phone, or, if you’re an old-fashioned kind of person, a Nokia 35mm. The Big Apple is abundant with pictorial photo shoot spots, what with all the historical sites, tall buildings, neon lights, and other eye-catching objects. Pick any direction, start walking, and you’re bound to come across some good photo opportunities. However, if you really want your photos to impress go to these select locations below and get that perfect picture you’ve been seeking.

Twilight at Times Square

Times Square seems like an obvious location, but it’s not the where that matters in this case, but the when. Lots of bad photos are taken in Times Square due to suboptimal lighting conditions; at the wrong times, it’s easy to get either dim or hazy photos. If you want postcard quality photos of Times Square, start shooting right after the sun has set. The sky won’t be too bright as to wash out the city lights, but it also won’t be too dark to cause the camera’s light meter to falter due to harsh contrast. Make sure you scout out some good spots and angles before the time comes. Read the rest »
