Hello everyone! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

I’ve decided to make a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) since a lot of you has been asking the same questions. I hope this helps. Feel free to ask me anything that isn’t in this FAQ, or you can always message me just to say hi! I always want to make new friends. c: Sorry, I’ll quit blabbering lol.

1. Where do you buy your mildliner?

I bought them in Japan. For those of you who lives in Indonesia, I’m selling them here. 

You can find Milliners and other amazing stuffs in various stores in Japan (´・∀・`)

2. What pen do you use to write?

Usually, I like to use free pens you get from hotels (lol) or those cheap pens you can get for like $1 (you can get like 2 or 3 lmao). But my favorite pen to use is MUJI’s Polycarbonate Pen (0.7)

3. What’s your nationality? What’s your major?

I’m Indonesian. (yes, my notes are written in Indonesian language) and I’m majoring in Law.

4. What paper do you use for note taking? Where do you get those squared/dotted looseleaf?

I ((always)) use kokuyo’s loose leaf for my notes. They are really great and soft, and stuffs (like mildliners, daiso highlighter, and brushpens) don’t bleed through them. They’re fantastic. ♡〜٩( ˃́▿˂̀ )۶〜♡

5. What are the things you use to write your notes?

okay, I’m going to list them all.

- For highlighting: Mildliners, Daiso highlighters, koi brushpens 

- For headers: Koi brushpens, Tombow dual brushpens, Artline Stix

- Pens: MUJI’s polycarbonate ballpoint (0.7), MUJI’s gel pen (0.38), PILOT JUICE pens (0.5), SARASA CLIP (0.5), cheap pens and pens you get from hotels lmao

6. What do you use to take your pictures and what application do you use to edit your photos?

I use my phone camera (iPhone 6s) and my Canon EOS kiss x5 (efs 18-135mm macro 0.39m/1.3ft lens)

I use the instagram photo editor to edit all of my photos.

7. How to change your handwriting? How can you get your current handwriting, did you try to change it before?

No. I have never tried to change my handwriting, and I personally think that it would be very hard to me to change my handwriting. As to how to change your handwriting, I think there are other studyblrs who have made posts/youtube videos about this, so you can just search for em. :>

8. How to start a studyblr/studygram/studytube?

I can actually give you some tips I got from my personal experiences (like how I started mine), I’ll probably do a separate post for that. I’m just going to give the simplest answer here, which is to just start/make one!! You don’t need pretty notes, good handwriting and expensive stationeries. The point of making a studygram/studyblr/studytube is to motivate YOURSELF to be more productive. I personally think that if your study gram/studyblr/studytube doesn’t help you, then what’s the point of making one? you’re missing the whole point.

I’ll do a separate post about the tips I’ve got for ppl who want to start a new studyblr/gram/tube laturs. :>

Thank you for reading. 三ヾ(●゚∀゚)ノ

Moon Photography

Photographing the moon can be as simple as pointing your camera at the moon high in the sky and snapping, but to create more interesting images a little thought and planning needs to happen.

Here I’ll outline some tips to get excellent and compelling photographs of the moon.

Moonrise time. The moon appears largest just as it breaks above the horizon line, due to the refraction of light in the earths atmosphere. Photographing the moon at this point will yield the most dramatic shots.

Sunset time. As the sun sets, it can become increasingly difficult to properly expose both the moon and foreground (buildings, trees etc). To have both the moon and foreground exposed properly the moonrise time should be anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour before sunset. This way, the moon will be brightly lit by the sun, and there will still be some daylight to illuminate the foreground and sky. As soon as 15 minutes after sunset, the moon becomes too bright compared to the foreground, and will be over exposed.

Time of year. Typically two to three times a year the moon is full and at it’s closest point to earth. This usually happens mid to late summer and has been dubbed “supermoon" by the media and social media.

Interesting foreground. Shots of the moon alone are nice, but don’t really tell much of a story. Adding some interesting foreground such as a landscape shot (like above), a person or building is a great way to add a sense of scale to show how large the moon appears.

Long focal length, small aperture. The best way to make the moon appear larger in relation to the foreground is to use a lens with a long focal length. The longer the better! For reference most of my moon photographs were shot with the Canon 18-135mm EFS IS lens at 135mm. A small aperture allows both the foreground and moon to be in focus.

Clear air. Complete overcast will obviously not work, but if it’s a hot and hazy summer day, this can prevent the moon from being visible until it’s well above the horizon line.

TLDR; The moon should be full and rising 30-60 minutes before sunset, at it’s closed point to the earth usually mid to late summer. Include some interesting foreground for compelling photographs!

anonymous asked:

you probably get this a lot (sorry) but what kind of camera do you use / what's a good way to put down the iPhone camera and get into photography without breaking the bank?

I use any camera that is within reach. I actually dont think you should put down the iphone if youve been practicing with it. Camera gear is so expensive. You can easily get a bunch of Moment lenses that clip unto the back of your iphone and they tranform your the pcitures you take. But if you want to know so much about gear.

I shoot with

a Canon 6d
a Canont5i
a Canon 17-35mm f/2.8 L (has a drop of water in it)
a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
a Canon EF 50mm 1.8
and a Canon EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6

a good starting point would be

a Canon t5i
a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6

Hope This Helps. Have a Wonderful Day


Historic Panam City, Sonargaon

Sonargaon (Bengali: সোনারগাঁও; meaning City of Gold) was a historic administrative, commercial and maritime center in Bengal. Situated at the center of the Ganges delta, near the old course of the Brahmaputra River, it was the seat of the medieval Muslim rulers and governors of eastern Bengal. The area is located near the modern industrial river port of Narayanganj in Bangladesh.

Panam City was established in the late 19th century as a trading center of cotton fabrics during British rule. Hindu cloth merchants built their residential houses following colonial style with inspiration derived from European sources. Today this area is protected under the department of archaeology of Bangladesh.
