Sunny 16 Rule.

In photography, the sunny 16 rule (or, less often, the "sunny f/16 rule") is a method to estimate correct daylight exposures without using a light meter.The basic sunny 16 rule, applicable on a sunny day, is this:

The elaborated form of the sunny 16 rule for more general situations is:

  1. Set the shutter speed to the setting nearest to the ISO film speed
  2. Set the f-number according to the table below:
Aperture Lighting Conditions Shadow Detail
f/16 Sunny Distinct
f/11 Slight Overcast Soft around edges
f/8 Overcast Barely visible
f/5.6 Heavy Overcast No shadows
f/4 Sunset

For example, to shoot ISO 100 film in sunny conditions, set the shutter speed to 1/100 or 1/125 and the f-stop to f/16. With ISO 200 film, set the speed to 1/200 or 1/250. For ISO 400 film, 1/400 or 1/500. As with other light readings, the shutter speed can be changed, as long as the f-number is compensated. For example, 1/250th of a second at f/11 would be equivalent to 1/125th at f/16.

The Shower - La Doccia

La doccia e' uno strumento importante nella vita degli umani. E' lo strumento che declama la fine di una giornata bella o brutta che sia. Le emozioni, la rabbia,lo stress scivolano giù per le pareti fino al buio dello scarico, lasciandoci con quel sapore agro-dolce di "missione compiuta".

Qualcuno potrebbe obbiettare: " e chi se la fa la mattina?" Beh e' fortunato ad avere il tempo la mattina di riavviarsi di fresco.

Shower is an important tool in a human's life. This tool tells us when the end of a cool or "sucky" day comes. Emotions, anger and stress just slide down the walls, in the drain darkness, leaving us with a sweet & sour taste of "mission accomplished"

Someone could ask: "..and what about people that shower in the morning?" Well I can tell them they are lucky to have the time to do it and freshly reboot...if you know what i mean!
