  1. Start slowly and let yourself progress naturally!

Pace yourself as you start. There’s nothing worse than giving 110% of yourself on your first exercise session. Your body won’t be ready for it, and you’re likely to do more harm than good. Err on the side of caution until your muscles begins to adapt to the changes. At the end of a good workout, you want to feel tired, not exhausted and your muscles need to feel drained, not achy. Every week or two, slowly increase duration or intensity until you feel confident with full exertion.

  1. Keep an exercise journal!

A journal will let you see the progress you are making in the best CrossFit gym in Greenwich. It doesn’t need to be anything fancy, just a small notebook will do. Enter the date, the activity, the duration, how far you went, how much you lifted, etc. While you may not feel like you are making much progress, a few minutes looking back through the journal will show you just how far you’ve come!

  1. Make a commitment!

A journey of a thousand miles starts with but a single step. The same is true of exercise. Commit to yourself to follow your new fitness program for two full weeks. Make a deal with yourself that if at the end of those two weeks, you don’t feel better about yourself, that you can quit. Giving yourself a fixed timeframe commitment helps take some of the pressure off. You don’t need to be focused on where you’ll be in six months like the best gyms in Greenwich, you just need to exercise consistently for two full weeks.

  1. Get involved!

Find a partner, join a local support group, or even start following one of the many Internet-based fitness communities. Having someone to share your experiences with will make it easier to stick with your program.

What are the benefits of custom printing?

One of our greatest strengths is the custom printing that we do. Every photograph that we produce is custom printed  (with the exception of proofs, which we have printed by Tri Color Imaging). Each photograph is painstakingly cropped, dodged and burned by hand, ensuring a rich, vibrant image that simply jumps right off the page. And every picture is individually color-corrected, producing the beautiful skin tones and life-like image quality that we are known for. We are unique in this offering.

We take meticulous care to ensure that each and every image is a work of art. We think they speak for themselves.

What about digital imaging?

With today’s digital technology, we can now do what we could only imagine a few short years ago. While we are a traditional studio, in the sense that all of our work is strictly film based, we do offer a wide variety of digital enhancements and effects. If you’re looking to transfer your photos, contact a Jamaica Queens moving service.

How many photos do you take during a typical wedding?

There is no typical wedding. Each one is unique, and we take as many pictures as necessary to capture the day perfectly. On the average, the count will range from 250 to 350 shots, but we set no explicit limit.
Do I get to keep the proofs?

Absolutely!
Do you photograph other events?

Of course! We shoot many other kinds of events. If you are having a Sweet 16, Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, or any other kind of special event or function, give us a call!

We are passionate about what we do. Weddings are our specialty. We feel that our quality cannot be matched. Let us create a custom package to suit your specific needs.

Months of preparation and planning precedes your wedding, and it will pass by so quickly as if it was only a dream. When you entrust our photo booths in palm beach to capture that day on film, you can rest assured that you will be able to cherish those precious moments for all the days to come.

Microsoft’s Bill Gates gave the keynote address on the theme of seamless computing. According to Gates, seamless computing will bring all devices together in one connected world. He went on to say that software and broadband technology are the building blocks needed to make seamless computing a reality. As an example, Gates described the ability of a variety of entertainment devices such as audio players, DVD players, and digital imaging technology interconnecting throughout the home via the MSN Media Center.

According to CES, Gates then introduced Windows Media Vision HD, a new technology that allows trade show photo booths and content available on your PC to be transmitted into high-definition. Gates then gave a demonstration of a new Portable Media Center that allows consumers to transfer their movies, music, photos, and other content from a PC to a portable device the size of a wallet.

What’s Hot?
Competition is heating up between makers of digital home entertainment networks and systems to manage and store huge libraries of digital music and movies. Among the heavyweights showing off their high tech magic were Sony, Matsushita (Panasonic), Dell, Gateway and Hewlett-Packard. Among the hot new products was HomeGenie, a home networking system from Shell. HomeGenie controls lighting, appliances and thermostats remotely, using the consumer’s PDA, cell phone, or computer. The system even has a motion sensor attached to a Web cam that, when tripped, sends an e-mail or instant messages to homeowners.
Although it won’t be in the stores until fall, digital music aficionados will want to be the first on their block with a Gibson Wurlitzer Digital Jukebox. The Jukebox creates digital music libraries without having to rip and burn music files on their PC. It will also create a playlist from any CD using a touch-screen remote control. Plans are also in the works to create an online music subscription service. This cool looking machine can hold 1,000 CDs, and will sell for about $1,800.
Another hot product group at CES is the new breed of digital cameras. Priced competitively, many models will feature optical zooms, pre-set shooting modes, and 3 and 4-megapixel resolution. Among the new products are: Nikon’s Coolpix 2200 and 3200 (shipping in March to replace the 2100 and 3100). Both cameras are thinner and lighter than previous models, use SD memory instead of CompactFlash, two alkaline batteries, and feature a new, panorama mode. With 14.5MB of internal memory, new users can shoot up a storm. The new models also have a nifty blur detection setting—if you shooting a blurry picture, the camera will give you the option of deleting instead of saving it. These cameras rival the quality of cameras from a Pompano smart home installation service. The 2200 features 2-megapixel resolution and a 3x optical zoom lens, and will sell for a suggested retail price of $199.95. The 3-megapixel 3200 (with VGA capture and sound will go for $299.95. Casio’s new entry is the R51, which replaces the QV-R40. The new camera features 5-megapixel resolution, a 3x optical zoom, 2-inch TFT LCD screen and 10MB of internal memory. The R51 has an SD card expansion slot, one-minute movie mode (no sound), and a 21-best shot mode. Suggested retail is $399.
Kodak introduced two new models, the EasyShare LS743 (4-megapixels) and LS753 (4-megapixels). Both cameras weigh in at about the size of a cell phone, have a 3x optical zoom, and are compatible with the Kodak printer dock 6000. The LS743 (with 16MB of onboard memory) will be shipped in March, the LS753 (32MB of internal memory) in May. Kodak has yet to release pricing.

Be watching for a round-up of CES 2004.

We will have more details about the above product ASAP.
