Welcome back. Have you ever used your camera flash, only to still end up with underexposed photos? Daryl Gungadoo has a solution to that problem on this week’s Tech Corner.
Have you ever been in a stadium and on the other side of where you were sitting, you see a lot of flashes triggering. Well flash doesn’t really illuminate that far from the camera itself. A professional flash like this would illuminate an object up to about thirteen meters, anything past that is really underexposed, underexposed means that there is just not enough light to light that object so it looks dark – almost black.
On the other hand, a camera, a camera phone or a point and shoot camera – with those little tiny flashes, well that only illuminates up to three meters, past three meters, again the light is not strong enough to illuminate that bit and it’s dark. So, my suggestion to you is to disable the flash if you are going to take a picture where the object is further than three meters for a camera like this or thirteen meters for a professional camera that uses this kind of flash.
How should Christians tell others about their faith in biblical Creation? Tim Standish shares resources from experts in the field on this month’s Geoscience feature.
It’s hard to know where to start discussing God in the creation. Yet the bible tells us in Revelation fourteen, six and seven that the everlasting gospel calls ALL people to worship the creator God. How can Christians share something so amazing that we can’t fully understand it ourselves? Well this is a challenge, there are excellent resources available for those seeking to share an informed perspective about the creation. This book, Understanding Creation addresses twenty commonly asked questions. The authors are all experts in their fields and provide thoughtful understandings of subjects ranging from, “What does the fossil record tell us?” To “How do dinosaurs fit in a biblical perspective?” Another resource is this just released, “Thinking Creation” DVD set. Programs address everything from the Christian roots of science to God and the big bang.
Thinking creation is for teachers wishing to teach from a biblical perspective and lay people seeking an informed discussion of creation with neighbors. The creation is not an irrational belief, it is an informed way of thinking about reality that deserves to be shared with the world in a thoughtful way.
