Cat Deeley

ITV presenter Cat Deeley Pictures left the UK for the States to further her career and present the hit TV show ‘Dancing With The Stars’.However, she seems to have gotten more then she bargained for I the shape of actor Leonardo DiCaprio.The two met two weeks ago at a Beverley Hills restaurant. As Cat Deeley Pictures and a friend were discussing whether or not the presenter should pose naked, Leo who was sitting nearby intervened and told Cat not to do it.A source told the Daily Star: “Leo was attracted by Cat’s fresh-faced looks and English accent. She looks very different from an identikit LA girl.“When he heard her talking about posing naked, he couldn’t help interjecting to advise her not to ruin her English Rose appeal.“They became good friends, but that’s obviously turned into something more recently as they were spotted kissing at the polo lounge. It’s a favourite haunt on Tom Cruise as it’s so private, but Anglophiles spotted Cat as she met Leo.”DiCaprio has been seeing model Bar Refaeli since December and was recently seen out and about with his ex-girlfriends supermodel Gisele Bundchen.He is quite the ladies man…watch out Cat!!!!

Dreaming Winter Photography

Author: Viojieley Gurrobat
The sight of early morning snow, the shimmering frost in the trees, your sister falling off in your snow filled front yard and your stunning snow angel, don’t you ever wish you could just capture that moment right away and place them in your computer desktop? Right, sounds easy but for an amateur photographer this may sound too challenging and laborious. But thanks to the dawn of digital photography and winter photography need not be exclusive to the professional anymore. You have to remember a few pointers though. Winter shooting can be tricky as majority of the landscape is white and the background is bright. When shooting a snow filled area, the brightness of the snow may often cause your digital camera to somewhat underexpose the scene, thus making the snow to look gray. To correct this, you might have to increase your exposure compensation so the whiteness of the snow can be appropriately captured. The time of the day you took the picture can also have an effect in your image. So if you want cooler shots shoot closer to midday but if you want warmer shoots, shoot early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Although traditional photography belief tells us that using flash outdoor is not necessary but if you are shooting a winter photograph, using a flash can bring out details and highlights that might not be captured without it. However, if you are shooting close shots avoid using flash as much as possible as the reflection can greatly reduce any detail in your photo. With the flexibility of processing available with digital cameras, you have better choices when in comes to choosing the finished format of your photograph. There is really nothing to lose to trying winter photography. You might even be surprised with the images that you captured. Once you have become accustomed to winter photography and have been familiar with the different techniques, you will find that winter is one of the best times of the year to go out there, take photos and make use of your digital camera. You will be surprised to see that the final results are worth the hassle. For comments and suggestions kindly visit Digital Printing Company
