Happy International Women’s Day! 

In this amazing aurora picture, the crater lake in the center is called Kerid (Icelandic: Kerið) and is about 3,000 years old. The overhead view shows impressive colors and banding, with the red colors occurring higher in the Earth’s atmosphere than the green. The background sky is filled with icons of the northern night including Polaris, the Pleiades star cluster, and the stars that compose the handle of the Big Dipper.

The Art of Jay Maisel 

After studying painting and graphic design at Cooper Union and Yale, Jay Maisel began his career in photography in 1954. While his portfolio includes the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Miles Davis, he is perhaps best known for capturing the light, color, and gesture found in every day life. This unique vision kept him busy for over 40 years shooting annual reports, magazine covers, jazz albums, advertising and more for an array of clients worldwide. 

Since he stopped taking on commercial work in the late ’90s, Jay has continued to focus on his personal work. He has developed a reputation as a giving and inspiring teacher as a result of extensive lecturing and photography workshops throughout the country.

Heloise Bergman

One of Heloise Bergman’s projects is called The Dying Art (of smoking) which was to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of banning smoking advertising. Bergman is also against smoking herself as she mentions, all the research she did on smoking out her off. For this project Bergman created an installation recording of everyone outside smoking and captured how the way one person holds a cigarette can provide information about the smokers personality. This was projected inside an exhibition, bringing the people outdoors inside, making them part of the exhibition.

Heloise Bergman’s current project is called Ta Moko - Modern Maori Warriors. Ta Mako means tattoo in the native language of New Zeland. This project captures the culture of Maori and represents their constant fight to keep their tribe and protect their history. In the project, she explores the new culture of the Maori and photographs them showing their cultural identity against a white background as you can see below.

Taking Notes: The Outlining Method

The Outlining Method

Dash or indented outlining is usually best except for some science classes such as physics or math.

  1. The information which is most general begins at the left with each more specific group of facts indented with spaces to the right.
  2. The relationships between the different parts is carried out through indenting.
  3. No numbers, letters, or Roman numerals are needed.
