    Best answer: So we figure out where ozark mountains are, and that’s Arkansas and Missouri mostly, then we search roadvways and traffic rules, maybe find some park maps and trails as well at least enterances where you can park and walk.

    This is only for the municipal of Ozark city,
    https://ecode360.com/28909051

    This is Missouri, similar rules
    https://www.lawserver.com/law/state/miss...


    “No person shall stop, stand or park any vehicle upon or within eighteen (18) inches of the traveled portion of any County road.”
    https://ecode360.com/27885850

    So there are some unique rules like the 18 inch distance away from traffic which makes sense that you have room to open door or larger vehicle have distance on corners to near miss parked cars,
    Your common sense is required, where there are signs posted for no parking, corners and bridges obstructed, just don’t park in risk zones, *** insurance won’t cover your fault if other vehicle crashes or causes death.

    And they mention parking permits at highway administration offices, that may allow you to park within time limiters and not be charged if left vacant.

  • What are good photography tips?

    Best answer: 1) Pay attention to the light. It doesn't matter if you're using a $5,000 DSLR or a smartphone, if you want great photos, you must have great light. So what is great light?

    Best answer: 1) Pay attention to the light. It doesn't matter if you're using a $5,000 DSLR or a smartphone, if you want great photos, you must have great light. So what is great light? Well, it depends upon the subject matter. For example, the vast majority of landscapes are taken just prior to the Sun going below the horizon. The hours before and after sunrise or sunset are called the golden hour. The light is created by the Sun at this time is considered to be quite beautiful for landscapes and portraiture.

    Bad light for landscapes or portraiture (to name a few) is mid-day Sun. Between around 10am to about 4 pm, the Sun is high in the sky and produces very dark shadows and bright highlights. This harsh lighting is often avoided by most photographers and probably all landscape photographers.

    2) Composition. Again, it doesn't matter what camera you are using, you can compose the frame the same way. Read up on photographic composition. You will see such things as the Rule of Thirds and the Golden Mean. Rule of Thirds is quite simple to understand and utilize in your own photography. It's one of the quickest and easiest ways of improving the look of your photographs. The Golden Mean is a lot more complicated, and I would suggest that you read up on it but use the Rule of Thirds to start off with because the Golden Mean is fairly difficult to grasp.

    3) Subject Matter: Choose interesting subjects to photograph. All of us started off at some point, and we all took photos of our dogs or cats. I encourage you to do the same. Photography anything that interests you.

    4) Work the Subject: What I mean by "work the subject" is to take more than just one photo of something. Be creative. Look for different angels. Often when I photograph something, I can take a dozen shots or more. You're not likely to get the best shot right away, but if you work the subject and keep taking more shots, that's when the creative juices start flowing.

    5) Go online and study the work of other photographers. If you like landscapes, do a search for "worlds best landscape photographers." You'll find a bunch of YouTube videos on everyone. When you first start off, your idea of what is a great image is quite limited. So you have to fill up your own visual library with great images so that when you're out and about taking photos, you can then refer back to some great shot and use some or all of the techniques that you saw in that image to create your own unique work. It's okay at this stage to even copy other people's work; that's how you learn.

    6)Don't get discouraged if your photos are great right away. It's going to take several years for you to understand light, composition, and how to say something with your work. Photography is a visual language, and just like any other language, it has rules of grammar. Learning how to be visually literate is an advanced concept, but it's critical to understand if you want to go from good to great. YouTube has a lot of good videos on visual literacy.

    7) It's not what camera you're using, it's what you do with it that matters.

    My parents bought me a Wacom Intuos for Christmas last year, and I ve tried it a few times since. Each time I hook it up to photoshop and try to draw it looks like an absolute mess compared to my normal quality of art. I normally draw on my iPad because I find it incredibly hard to draw with looking at my hand. My hand eye coordination isn t the best. Every time I see the Wacom now, I feel sick from guilt because I can t use it and, honestly, don t want it, even though my parents invest quite a bit of money into it for me. I feel so bad, but I m also stressed because I m planning on studying to become an animator. My question is: do I need to use a tablet like a Wacom to be a professional, or can I keep drawing on touch screens like I always have?

    Best answer: Draw somebody looking up in astonishment as a UFO is up in the sky !

    Next day, draw a guy firing a lit cigarette out of his mouth at the velocity of a bullet. (Well, MAYBE).

    Draw a couple of books and a pencil on a table top and a flower pot near by.

    Draw a car parked outside with a tree nearby as the sun is about to rise.

    Draw a heart shape with many straight lines going out detached from the sides of it to make it look like it is shining like a light, and then draw simple colorful flower shapes all around that and then draw pretty lines with curls very near to the edges of the paper as a lacing. ( I still remember the good old "hippy age" with the peace, love, joy, music and all.)

    Draw a bowl of fruit on a side table with a wall behind it.

    Draw an airplane taking off from a runway at an airport.

    Draw a boat on the water on a sunny day with smiling people on it.

    Draw some kids with masks on for Halloween.

    There would be enough work lined up for a year, HEY, draw four pictures, one representing the outdoors during each season.

    Oh, and draw things that you see and copy them on paper.

    Best answer: The only way to get distortion from a print, regardless of the size, is to print at a different aspect ratio than the original image. If printed at the proper aspect ratio, the printed image contains no more distortion than the original image.

    As has been explained, distortion in the original image comes from the focal length of the lens and the angle of the shot compared to the subject.

    This means that your concern needs to be with the actual photo showing the image as you need it to be, and not so much the printing process. Once you have the proper photo in hand, you can then print it at any size you wish with no further changes to the image.

For the final he gave us creative freedome but he told me that my idea need to be more shock valve, and that it need to push more of what it was saying, to be more shocking and artist. It don't even feel like my artwork anymore, but his. I'm doing what he telling me because I don't want to fail the class but what can I do to avoid this happening again beacuse I don't want this happening again to me at all.

    Best answer: Prior to 1826 – 1827 there was no photography, so people who wanted portraits of themselves had to sit for hours, sometimes days posing before a portrait painter. Oil painting on canvas was incredibly expensive, so only the rich and famous could afford a portrait. Add to this the fact that life expectancy was short -- thus most wanted their portrait made as a legacy. It was commonplace to have a silhouette made. You sat adjacent to a window so that your shadow played on a placard. The silhouette artist traced the outline of your face, most often using a lens and or a mechanical device. A miniature silhouette, black on white, was the result. These were cheap -- thus very popular.

    The first picture made took 8 hours to expose. Soon after the sensitivity of the light-sensitive plates increased, now the exposure occurred in about 4 to 5 minutes. To sit for a portrait was an ordeal. You dressed in your finest and the photographer applied clamps and braces that prevented you from moving during the exposure. As time passed, the exposure time was reduced to about 1 minute. The portrait studio moved indoors to a room with a skylight.

    As film speeds improved so did the studio lighting. By the 1940’s, it was common to pose before hot, bright lights. The subject was uncomfortable plus sweaty. People often fainted because of the hot lights and the nervousness of these sittings.

    No, people did not smile much, the session was uncomfortable and they were spending money. The good news, photography and portraiture was available to the masses. Now we have cell phone cameras, what a progression!
