You’re usually a member who is able to create the atmosphere, do you have any thoughts of heading towards the entertainment sector?
Of course! I don’t stress easily, if I have a lot of stress I will shout loudly, or laugh loudly, so I always look like I’m full of energy, by doing this I can cheer up the people around me. But other than entertainment programmes, I still want to show everyone my compositions or other talents I have.
Q: Right now cat boyfriends and dog boyfriends are very popular, which type do you think you are?

#HappyXingDay (Lay's Birthday Message on Weibo)1 year has 365 days, in the situation that each of the 24 hours has been passing very slowly every day, 1 and a half years have gone by~ In this one and a half years, there have been too many pleasant surprises, too many emotions, too much sadness, too much pride.
Every time my birthday comes around, once again you and I have a chance to communicate on the same terms~
In this time's birthday message, I want to talk about some personal things with everyone, okay? ^ ^
When I was in school, I never thought that I could ever stand on a global stage, singing for everyone who supports me - perhaps this was just a dream.
I only hope that the songs I've written can receive everyone's acknowledgment, or that my abilities could achieve something in the music world.
But now that dream, because of SM Entertainment and all of you who have helped me along the way, has come true!
But now, however, I am at a loss, at a loss of what exactly do I need to do?
Perhaps I am still that immature child, but a

Percy's Payback"GUYS IM OVER HERE!" Nico cried out to the group, who had come running around the corner and run straight into where he was behind held, surrounded by a cage of earth which he was unable to break no matter how hard he tried. The group stopped and stared at him in confusion, like they didn't recognise him, even Hazel.
"Do we know you?" Piper asked, raising an eyebrow.
"YES! Well actually I don't know you, but the others...GUYS LEMME OUT, ITS NICO!" They looked blankly at him.
"I'm sorry..."Annabeth muttered walking forwards. "But I've never seen you before in my life!" Nico was about to protest when he saw Percy, smirking like an idiot.
"Ha ha very funny, I get it I get it, now please let me out!" Percy frowned.
"What's funny? I think this is quite serious, for all we know your some terrible titan just coaxing us into letting you go." Sighing in frustration Nico looked towards Hazel, his last hope, the only one who could stop the madness.
"Hazel, come on, we don't have long,
Percabeth - I love you - CH. 1ANNABETH POV.
I fiddled with my camp necklace, especially the trident bead. It reminded me of Percy Jackson, my boyfriend. I stared out the window but couldn't see much as the snow was covering most of San Francisco. I had nothing to do on Winter break. Suddenly my cell phone rang. I grabbed it from my nightstand and looked at the caller ID: Seaweed Brain. I answered it.
"Hey, Kelp head." I greeted.
"'Sup, Wise Girl." He replied.
"So what have you been doing lately?" I asked.
"Nothing much, but I called to ask you something." I could tell he was smiling.
"And what would that be?" I asked.
"Do you want to come stay with me in New York?"
"Yes!" I replied straight away, making him laugh - I loved it when he did that.
"When do I come?" I questioned him.
"Whenever you want to!" Percy told me. "Which is soon, I hope."
I grinned. "My dad thinks I need to 'get out of the house', so maybe tomorrow."
"Great!" Percy said,"See you then."
"Okay, bye!" I said. "Love you."
"Love you too." Percy
Mark Of Athena
The ship jolted a bit as they hit some turbulence. Jason glanced over his shoulder to where Leo was behind the wheel with a slanted sailors hat on his mop of curly brown hair. There was a huge smile on his lips and Jason could tell he was really enjoying finally being able to fly the Argo II, after months of planning and building and failed attempts she was finally working. Annabeth was below deck working on something for the quest, although Jason suspected she was probably working out what she was going to do when she saw Percy again. They still didn't know how much of the guys memory he would have back yet, possibly none, possibly all of it. Jason's fingers tapped nervously against the wooden edge of the ship as he looked down at the world below, they where almost there; he could feel it, like so
Tips for the creative photographer #2Iīm by no means saying I am any expert, but I hope some of this might prove beneficial.
Screw the rules
It is very good to know and be aware of composition, correct exposure, to compensate or not to, but it does sometimes mess with your own creative approach.
The camera and lens is plastic, metal and glass and just tools for you to use, they should be treated as such.
A good thing is to get that perfectly exposed and composed shot out of the way and then just flip to a new page.
Try for instance to take a picture of something with the sun behind it and completely blow the whites out leaving the subject correctly exposed without the use of a flash, it might just be the shot you choose instead of the "correct" one.
Absolutely no harm in using other tools than just the camera and a tripod, people have gotten cover shots of eagles diving in the water for food the photographer has brought and thrown there as bait.

CONTEST TIME! [CLOSED]Hey everyone!

How to take the best possible images at night.This is mainly directed and nightsky photography but it will apply to all sorts of night photography where you are limited when it comes to light.
I will structure this step by step for ease of use, once you have touched all points you will be ready to tackle the night with all its challenges.
Step 1 - The Camera
Over at DxOMark they are very good at testing stuff the scientific way, some will argue the real world application and images instead and I agree with both, but for iso which is so important for night photography this would be my first stop: http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Ratings/Sports
Find your camera and note down the iso sensitivity, you have to forget about the dynamic range a bit here as with high iso you will not even get close to the cameras max performance.
Step 2 - The lens
Find your lens here: http://www.lenstip.com/lenses_reviews.html
The one thing they do here that dxomark does not is test the lens for coma and astigmatism, the first would

A few simple photography tipsThought Id share a few simple yet effective photography tips for the creative photographer.
Macro done easy
Set your lens to its closest focusing range and move physically towards the subject until it is sharp.
If you are using longer lenses it really helps to lay down and hold the camera and lens almost like you are shooting a gun, and remember your breathing when shooting.
This is also a great technique for bokeh shots, with a 50 mm at its closest focusing range and background further away you will blow the background to bits.
Donīt be stationary
It is very easy to put down a tripod and just stand on the same spot shooting, instead try moving around a bi, experiment with angles, left, right, high, low until you hit that perfect angle for the scene.
Slow the shutter
You donīt always need a ND filter to block out light to get even slower shutter speed, you can either use this technique with your hand or better with a cardboard (black if you got colored one).
