Ultracrepidarianism

The habit of giving opinions and advice on matters outside of one’s knowledge.

 

Wow. Where was this word in my life 40 years ago??? For, both, me and others I know! Pretty much everybody’s been guilty at this at some point. It’s a matter of how much rather than having done it or not.

This will be a useful word for me for the rest of my life. It’s just too bad it’s so hard to say! I’ll remember it with the “ultra” bit, meaning going beyond. Then “crepi” is like scope creep to go beyond, so it’s like beyond going beyond. As for the “darianism”? Well, “how dare you” offer me advice on something outside of your knowledge??? 😉

From the podcast below, which is nice for other matters of getting out of ruts from stories you tell yourself, not ultracrepidarianism… which is not in the WordPress blogging platform’s spellcheck dictionary, I see. 🙂

Photos with the Rokinon 8mm f3.5 Ultra Wide Fisheye Lens

Fisheye lens give a neat warped mirror effect. While you can simulate it in Photoshop, Photoshop is no substitute because you can’t get the width covered by a fisheye lens into your picture. It covers almost 180 degrees in every direction, or almost half a sphere of vision in front of you so that you can almost get your extended hands and toes in a photo when you are point the lens in front of you as you would see the world. That’s how much width there is!

Printable G1 Autobot Vertical Trading Cards (6″ x 4″ photo size)

Please click here for Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon wallpapers and printable trading cards

I created these Autobot vertical format trading cards, or just plain photos for decorative purposes. They are regular photo size so you could just take the files to wherever you print pictures and print them! I designed them for convenience that way. Of course, they could also be printed on other things like stickers and such, including at smaller sizes like 2″ x 3″. However, I would not recommend printing these on paper above 9″ x 6″, if you still want quality in the image.

These are “fan art”, NOT official products so please do not interpret them as such, try to convince others as such or try to profit from them!

The Autobot art came from the Transformer toy boxes, and were obtained from Botch the Crab’s Transformers Box Art Archive. However, I did my fair share of Photoshop magic to get them in the condition you see here, and then did the design on my own. These all print very nicely, even though a few of them will look just a tad rough on-screen if you view them to download. This was because the original art source didn’t always have a very high resolution scan and it is a lot larger on your screen than in print.

Just click on the file you want to download it. Then take it to your a store with a photo printing machine and print them out. It’s that simple!

Enjoy!

Files areabout 1.0 MB to keep the high quality print details. They are 1800 x 1200 pixels if you want to print them on something other than a normal printer, and your printing shop asks you for a file size to see if it’s big enough to do what you want.

You can look forward to seeing some of these G1 Autobots in wallpapers I will create in the near future.
