A Photographer’s Mission to Capture a New Image of Africa

A Photographer’s Mission to Capture a New Image of Africa


(uplifting music) – [Mutua] I think people are affected by the images they see. Most of the time that you
see images coming from Kenya, specifically, in most of Africa,
it will be war, disease, AIDS, famine, something like that. While that is true,
there’s still a lot more coming out of the continent
that is uplifting, that is positive, that is encouraging. My mission is to change
our own perceptions of what Africa is supposed to be. (uplifting music) My name is Mutua Metheka,
and I’m a photographer. I got into photography by accident. A friend of mine showed
me something on a website, and I was like, I probably can do this, so I decided to try it out. (light uplifting music) Originally, my mission was
to, you know, educate the West on what Africa is like. And I realized, it doesn’t matter what other people think, if
we still think of ourselves as backward or not worthy. So, my mission changed
to trying to get people who have grown up in
African cities to learn to see Africa differently. If I can keep shooting
what I want people to see, then I believe over time
this changes what people think of themselves. (upbeat music) I have recently just
completed a project where rock climbing communication masts from all over the country. The aim was to explore different views from this new perspective. (uplifting music) I can almost guarantee that
no photographer in Africa or in Kenya has photographed
from the heights that I photographed from. So it was a unique opportunity and a very rare chance for me. (uplifting music) We traveled about seven/eight days, climbed seven masts in total, some going as high as 100 meters. It was hard climbing,
but you get to the top, and you see the view that awaits you, and it’s like another world. (uplifting music) It was beautiful being up there. (uplifting music) Photography has a unique way of being able to change perceptions just
by seeing something different over and over and over. (uplifting music) All of these things are
connected to the value that you place on the
place that you live in. I think if we see that
what we have is really beautiful and worth protecting, then we put a lot more
effort into protecting it for ourselves and for the future. (uplifting music)

How To Crop & Edit Images Inside WordPress

How To Crop & Edit Images Inside WordPress


a great feature of WordPress is the ability to import images to your site and then edit them from within WordPress.This is really great whenever you have a picture that is quite the right size or perhaps you want a different part of the image for the thumbnail than what you use for the featured image on your website. This is also very good if you’re on a computer that doesn’t have any photo editing software installed on it. you can do everything online. Now whether this is a new post or you’re going in from the main menu. You want to get into the media area and either go into your library if you already imported it or go to add new if you haven’t. The interface page is pretty standard whether it’s from within a post or not. Select images. You select the image that you want to import. WordPress imports the image and it gives your page just like this . Below the image you’re going to see the Edit Image button. Click it and this is the interface that you’re going to see. There’s a group of options across the top: its crop, rotate, rotate clockwise, flip vertically, flip horizontally, undo and redo. They’re pretty basic and pretty self-explanatory: rotate… self-explanatory, rotate counterclockwise and clockwise, flip vertically: this doesn’t work very well with people but sometimes for graphics and images and landscapes you might be able to get away with something like this especially flipping it like horizontally might work out better if you want to frame someonea little bit differently and of course undo: takes you right back to where you started from. The feature that seems to be giving a lot of people problem is the crop feature because you click on it —- nothing happens to crop an image. What you must do is first select the portion of the image that you want to retain. Select it. Make your adjustments and then whenever you’re ready then click the crop button and there you go. When you crop the image one thing you’re going to notice is that the thumbnail didn’t change it created the thumbnail. initially that’s not going to change unless you want it to. I’m going to hit undo and below this image you’ll see that there are three buttons: apply changes to all images, thumbnails or all images except thumbnail. This really gives you some flexibility. what I’d like to do is for the thumbnail focus in on Carol Bouquet’s face. So what I want to do is select just apply changes just the thumbnail and hit crop. Now this takes into just a close-up and then we hit save. Now takes us back to the main page and when we go back into edit image and what you’ll notice is that the main image hasn’t changed but the thumbnail has. This is great. This gives you the ability to focus in on whatever you want to focus in on for the thumbnail image. That’s a quick rundown of some of the basic imaging editing tools that are built into WordPress hopefully you learned a thing or two and we’ll see youagain very soon on ONLINE VIDEO STUDENT.

15 New Stunning Images Of Mars From Curiosity Rover (2020)

15 New Stunning Images Of Mars From Curiosity Rover (2020)


From the various peaks of mountains, to the
valleys that help reveal so much about red planet, join me as we explore brand new images
from Mars via the Curiosity Rover. I want you to imagine that you are on Mars
right now. That is after all the goal of many in the
world right now. Between NASA, Space X, and various other international
agencies, there are a lot of people who are working hard to get us to the red planet known
as Mars, and in the process, create history. Because when we do land on Mars, it’ll be
the first time a human has stepped foot on another planet. This usually would be a very harrowing task,
especially since much of what another planet its usually is unknown. But, because of images from things like the
Curiosity Rover, we have a better chance of understanding what to expect, and with the
detailed pictures it’s sent us, we have a better look at the topography, the landscape,
and the materials that help make up the planet. So that way, when the time comes, we’ll know
exactly what we’re stepping into and what to expect as a whole. 15. The Curiosity Rover
You might not realize just how much we owe to the Curiosity Rover, so allow me to explain
it to you and show you just how much work this singular machine had done. The Curiosity Rover was launched from Earth
on November 26th, 2011. Its mission was to go to Mars, take pictures,
but more than that, it was to conduct, “an investigation of the Martian climate and geology;
assessment of whether the selected field site inside Gale has ever offered environmental
conditions favorable for microbial life, including investigation of the role of water; and planetary
habitability studies in preparation for human exploration.” When it landed on Mars in August of 2012,
the mission was supposed to only last for two years, but not only did the Curiosity
Rover continue to bring back good information, it wasn’t drastically affected by the Martian
conditions like previous rovers. So that mission from 2 years…to now 8. It’s STILL on the planet right now, and it’s
STILL bringing us high-resolution images of Mars, and still conducting experiments on
the soil and air and other parts of the planet. Yet, and here’s the irony of the whole situation,
despite being on there for 8 years, it’s honestly only traveled a little over 13.5 miles! And if you want a good hard look at just how
much work and effort that the Curiosity Rover has put in while on Mars, here is a set of
pictures showcasing the effects of Mars on the craft. Notice how dirty the craft looks now compared
to its “original form”. But that’s what happens when you’re digging
around and roaming a barren planet full of red dust, you’re bound to get dirty. On a personal note, doesn’t he look like Wall-E
now? 14. Mount Sharp
In terms of the location of where the Curiosity Rover was posted, that would be the Gale Crater. This was an impact site that at one time was
believed to have been a key place for various things like water and sediment. We know that there is water on Mars, and Curiosity
has even found various forms of clay via its explorations. But what has most scientists intrigued is
that they believe that Mars was once a very lush planet before external forces caused
it to be barren. One of the results of this was Mount Sharp,
a mountain that was caused by winds in the area of the Gale Crater pushing away various
amounts of dirt and such to create a massive mountain in the area. One of the biggest challenges that Curiosity
faces right now is trying to get up Mount Sharp, which trust me, isn’t as easy as it
sounds. 13. 3D Map Of Mars
While not solely a thing from the Curiosity Rover, anytime you can make a top-down 3D
map of an area, it can be very helpful in various tasks that you are trying to achieve. And sure enough, with the help of the Curiosity
Rover and the satellites above and beyond Mars over the years, NASA was able to make
a 3D map of the area the rover is in, and thus, create a way for them to look over the
terrain that would help them go and find a path through the crater and up to the peaks
of Mount Sharp. Another big plus of a map like this is that
the 3D style of it can help determine other places of interest for the rover to go in
the future. Whether that happens though will depend on
mission parameters and other variables. 12. Yellowknife Bay
Yellowknife By was one of the areas that the Curiosity Rover had to go through to get to
Mount Sharp, and as you can see from these pictures, various styles and compositions
of rock are here in this area. By looking at these pictures, a lot of information
was able to be determined. Including the fact that at one time, this
area was indeed filled with water. Hence the name “Yellowknife Bay”. As it explored the area, it continued to take
pictures of the various other areas within the bay, including finding more proof of former
points of water. Including a “lake”. You almost have to wonder what caused these
areas to look like they do after the water left them. It’s believed that the hole in the atmosphere
(which is still there now) was the major factor in Mars losing its water. But to go from that to what it is now is a
long process, and that’s part of the reason the Curiosity Rover continues its mission,
so we can have more answers and less guesses. 11. Parhump Hills
Continuing on its journey to Mount Sharp, the Curiosity Rover found itself looking at
the base of the mountain via the Parhump Hills. And with this came a look at places like the
Kimberly Foundation. The more pictures that were taken, the more
proof was stacked about how the crater was at one time a major place of water. You might think it odd for NASA and others
to want even MORE proof of water on Mars after we’ve already gotten it, but you have it backwards. The more proof we have, the more areas we
can look for more remains of the water. Not to mention, the more evidence we have
of what Mars lost, the more details we can connect in regards to how Mars got to how
it is now. Even today, we’re finding more and more clues
as to how Mars formed as a planet, and the more we tap into its history, the more that
we can better learn how to colonize it when the time comes. So yeah, we may be finding a lot of proof
that there was water on Mars years after we proved it, but in this case, there’s no such
thing as too much proof or information. Also, when you look at these pictures of the
hills and foundation, you see the scope of the crater, and even if there was only a few
feet of water within this crater, that would still mean a LOT of water was lost over time. 10. Garden City
Heading now to a rather odd spot on the rovers journey to Mount Sharp was the place known
as Garden City. When you take a look at these photos, it’s
almost as if the place is full of bones and litter. But in fact, it’s a place that is full of
various mineral deposits that winds and weaves throughout the area. This was an unexpected but very important
stop for the rover, and thus it spent some time in the “city” in order to get sample
of the various mineral veins and send them to geologists back on Earth. “Why is that so important?” you might be asking. Well, it’s about long-term habitation on Mars. While we do know much of the materials that
make up the planet, the quantities and spacing of them are still a mystery. So, by researching where they are, we can
influence where we land colonies, and where we try and dig up materials. If we get the right materials, it can help
us survive independently on Mars without the need for constant aim from Earth, which would
be a costly endeavor. Before we show you more pictures from Mars,
be sure to like the video and subscribe to the channel, that way you don’t miss ANY of
our weekly videos! 9. Martian Sunset
If you’re hoping to see more aesthetic things that rocks and dirt via the rovers time on
Mars, then you’re in luck. Because during its time on the red planet,
it had time to get some absolutely beautiful shots of the Martian sunrise and sunset. Do you notice anything interesting in this
picture? Exactly. The Martian setting sun has a more bluish
tint than anything we have here on Earth. The reason for this is believed to be because
of the atmosphere. Mainly in regards to how there are fine particles
in the atmosphere that filter out the light in such a way that
8. Bagnold Dunes
Continuing on its journey to Mount Sharp, the Curiosity Rover passed by the Bagnold
Dunes, an area that has many scientists and researchers curious for a variety of reasons. One of them you can see in these photos, as
you can see the rapid change of environment from stone to sand. And as you can tell, these dunes are tall,
one of the first ones you’ll see is 13 feet in height. Another fun fact is that these dunes were
the first to be examined up close on another world. Which may not sound impressive given that
there are plenty of dunes in our own world, but these kind of feature is special, and
many examine it to find out how the terrain in areas like these are formed. Another interesting thing to note is that
NASA had lost a previous rover in Spirit before because it was not careful when crossing these
dunes. They made sure this didn’t happen with Curiosity. 7. Entrance to Murray Buttes
This particular picture is special because of what it represented in terms of timing. This was the picture that was taken on its
4th anniversary. Meaning its fourth year on Mars. Which is significant if you recall because
Curiosity was only supposed to be on Mars for two years. NASA decided to celebrate by having Curiosity
sing “Happy Birthday” to itself. For real. 6. Stimson Formation
Continuing on in its journey, the rover passed by the Stimson Formation, a massive stone
structure that had been made by passing winds that deposited sand into it. This style of formation is known as crossbedding,
and indicates timing in terms of the rise of Mount Sharp, the dunes near it, and more. 5. Ireson Hill
Here is another structure found on the way up Mount Sharp that got a lot of people’s
attention. Ireson Hill looks like something dark and
mysterious. Especially when you consider that it is 16
feet high. What’s more, the hill is colored very differently
than the other stone structures that can be found in the area. Curiosity took pictures of not just it, but
Mars from the peak of the hill to get a good look at the area. 4. Ogunquit Beach
A very special place that was found by the rover was a set of dunes known as Ogunquit
Beach. What makes these particular dunes so special? Simple, the way they’re formed, and the “crests”
that are within them are unique, so unique that you will not find anything like these
on Earth. 3. Vera Rubin Ridge
The highest point in its journey thus far, Vera Rubin Ridge is another case of massive
erosion and embedding of sediments. Though it’s impossible to tell at present
just how each structure was formed, we do know that some were because of wind erosion,
but others don’t seem to be that way based on looks alone. Showing that even Mars can have some weird
and unknown structures. 2. The View Of Mars
At the top of the ridge, Curiosity took the opportunity to make a beautiful panoramic
shot. Showing Mars from the height it was at, and
showcasing the depth of field and the distance it had traveled so far. The fun is quite spectacular, and it makes
you wonder what it will be like when Curiosity reaches the top of Mount Sharp. It hasn’t reached there yet, but it will soon
more than likely. 1. A Hi-Res Panorama
We’ve shown you a lot of pictures over the course of this video, but now, let’s show
you a literal brand new one that has come from the Curiosity Rover just days before
this video was made. This was a panorama image that was made by
the Curiosity Rover taken over the course of a “break” from late November to early December. This Panoramic image is comprised of 1000
photos and is 1.8 BILLION pixels. The picture itself is of the Glen Torridon,
a region on the flanks of Mars’ 3.4-mile-high (5.5 kilometers) Mount Sharp that the rover
has been exploring recently. The team behind the image were very shocked
at what they were seeing: “While many on our team were at home enjoying
turkey, Curiosity produced this feast for the eyes,” Curiosity project scientist Ashwin
Vasavada, of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, said in a statement
Wednesday (March 4). “This is the first time during the mission
we’ve dedicated our operations to a stereo 360-degree panorama,” he added. Because of the very detailed nature of the
photos, and the amount of pixels in them, this panoramic special is one that can be
near infinitely zoomed it so that it can be studied. In fact, that’s why it took until now to release
it, because NASA wanted to study it themselves. Thanks for watching everyone! What did you think of these pictures from
Mars via the Curiosity Rover? Can you believe what Mars looks like in terms
of its terrain and the features that it has? Do these images better help you believe that
we will indeed land on Mars one day, or do you think that it’ll be even harder than we
expect? Let me know in the comments below, be sure
