A little Salt and a little Light

Terry Dashner

The Bible says that you are the light and the salt of the world. I find it interesting that it uses these two metaphors. Why do I say that? For one, just a pinch of salt goes a long way. It takes just a little to enrich the taste of food. Without it, food is too bland. With too much, it ruins the taste. A little salt is just right. Stop and think about this. You are one person against the world. By your own strength and might the world can be overwhelming to you. But, with the strength of Christ in you, you become like salt to the world. You and your faith in Christ are just enough to change the world for the better. The Bible says that faith as small as a mustard seed is all you need to move aside the mountains in your life.

In regards to light, consider this. An aged and prosperous businessman worried about who would carry on after his death. His only relatives were three young nephews. So he called them in and said that one of them would be his successor. But I have a problem. And the one who solves it shall inherit my business, he said. I have here a large room, which I want to fill as soon as possible. Here is a small coin for each of you. Go now, but return at sunset, and see what you can buy with this coin to fill the room.

Hurriedly they went their way to the market, and as twilight fell, they returned. The first youth was dragging a bale of straw. When loosened, it made a pile so great that it filled half the room. He was complimented by the other two as they helped him clear it 1*4 panel away.

The second youth brought in two bags of thistledown which, when released, filled two thirds of the room.

Now it was time for the third nephew, who was standing still and forlorn. And what have you? asked his rich uncle. I gave my coin to a mission, he replied, leaving only one farthing. With it I bought a flint and this small candle. Using the flint, the third boy made a spark and lit the candle, which filled every corner of the room with light.

Light and salt fill emptiness. If you are living your faith as the salt and light of the earth, then you are filling the emptiness in this world with the life of Christ. If you are living your testimony of faith in Christ, you are driving out darkness everywhere you go. This world needs substance. The world needs your witness. Keep your light shining brightly, and keep your life salty.

If you are looking to install new or upgrade your bulk warehouse lighting then our GC016A-200W Induction Highbay fitting is a great low cost option both for new installations or for direct lighting retrofit changeovers. The GC016A-200W with its clear PC diffuser is light weight and gives off a big 80+ lumens per watt at a CRI (Colour Rendering Index) of around 85Ra which creates over 32,000 VEL (visually effective lumens) of quality low glare light. Our GC016A-200W has proven very effective as a direct replacement for old 400W Mercury Vapour fittings in various warehouse lighting replacement projects in Victoria, NSW and Tasmania in recent years. The large super fluorescent lamps in Induction light fittings are very low glare which makes them ideal for use in areas where forklifts and other lifting apparatus cause their operators to look up into the ceiling area. Both LED and Metal Halide lighting are high glare forms of light and as such are not ideal for use in these areas because they cause potentially dangerous short term white flash in the eyes of personnel exposed to the high glare when looking up.

Our GC016A model has been used in the creation of ESC’s in both the Victorian VEET and the NSW IPART energy savings schemes several times in recent years. The GC016A-200W model can be used as a direct replacement for old 400W Mercury Vapour fixtures or for replacement of 250W and 300W Metal Halide fixtures. One particularly successful changeout completed by Lightingretrofit involved a large frozen food factory storage area containing over 140 350W Metal Halide highbay lighting fixtures were replaced with our instant switching GC016A-250W Induction Highbay fixtures. The changeover was combined with a series of 11 row based motion detectors to keep lights off in rows where the forklifts were not operating. The project was part of the Food & Foundries energy Ceiling Panel Lights Manufacturers savings program and delivered an 85% reduction in annual lighting costs in the 24/7 operation of the factory freezer storage area. The factory was very impressed with the quality and stability of the light produced and are also pleased with the total lack of fixture failures in the 3 years of operation. A similar result was achieved in a Cement storage facility where 400W Mercury Vapour highbay fixtures were replaced with our GC016A-200W fixtures. The light circuits were then wired to be controlled by motion detectors at each entry point so that lights time themselves off when the area is vacant and turn back on instantly when movement is again detected.

In both cases the operations personnel and factory managers were as impressed with the low glare and viewing quality of the 5000K colour temperature produced by the GC016A fixtures as they were with the energy cost savings. Stored in bulk at our Dandenong, Victoria warehouse and costing around $285 each our GC016A-200W Induction Highbay really is a great option for Warehouse lighting and many other area lighting applications, both for energy efficiency, initial capital cost and extremely low ongoing maintenance costs.

As a nature photographer

By slimflood, 2020-01-14

Wildlife photography requires good knowledge of your camera and photography techniques. The nature side of wildlife photography is just as important; in particular, capturing your subject in the best possible light.

To take a top-class wildlife photograph, you need to know your animal; where to find it, how to approach it without scaring it away, and how to know the precise moment to press the button to capture the character of the subject. Often a wildlife photographer will spend hours trying to get a good shot. What a shame, then, if all that effort is wasted by taking your photo in bad light.

As a nature photographer, I have learned that the ideal light for a photo can vary depending on the subject. Landscape photos are usually best photographed in sunny weather, early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the contrast is low and the light is soft and colouful. On the hand, rainforest photography is usually best in the middle of the day, in cloudy weather to eliminate extremes of light and shade. To understand the best lighting for wildlife photography, you can take a lesson from both landscape and rainforest photography.

To get the best light for a wildlife photo, you are really looking to minimize contrast, and to eliminate shadows from important areas; most importantly across the face of the animal.

If you take your photos in the middle of a sunny day, you are bound to encounter shadows in all the wrong places. Bright light is likely to overexpose parts of the subject, while the face and the underside of the animal could be lost in heavy shadow. The result will be unattractive, and lacking in much of the detail that should give character to your photo.

There is nothing wrong with taking your wildlife photos on a sunny day. Just remember the lesson from landscape photography and seek to take your photos early in the morning and late in the afternoon. At these times the subject is illuminated from a more horizontal angle, so the full face of the animal is well-lit; you are less likely to have shadows over the eyes and other important features. If there are shadows, they will be much softer because the contrast is much lower when the sun is low in the sky.

The light at these times is also much more colourful, with the golden hues you associate with sunrise and sunset. This is a classic technique for improving landscapes, but it can be just as effective for wildlife. The warmth of the light can create an intimacy in your pictures that is completely lost in the harsh light of midday.

The second approach is to follow the rule of rainforest photography, and take your photos in overcast weather. This allows you to catch your subject in very even, low-contrast light.

I find cloudy days particularly useful for animals with glossy surfaces. Frogs, for example, have damp, shiny skin that reflects a lot of light. In glary conditions a green frog may appear mostly grey or silver in a photo. On a cloudy day the same frog will be shown in its true colours.

Birds can often appear more colourful on a cloudy day, for the very same reason. The sun shining on glossy feathers can create a lot of reflection, robbing the photo of its natural colour. It may seem the opposite of what you would expect, but the dull light of a cloudy day can actually produce the truest colours in a bright wildlife subject.

One final question you may ask: should you use a flash to illuminate a wildlife photo? My answer to that is a definite "NO." Flash photography bathes the subject in white light, coming from directly in front of the subject. It may illuminate the subject, but at the same time rob it of the natural play of light and shade that makes a good photo so appealing.

Some wildlife photography experts use multiple flashes to brightly illuminate a subject from every possible angle. This approach can work very well, but remember; these are experts in flash photography. If you are at the beginner stage, I recommend learning to work with natural light. When you get the hang of it, I guarantee you will be happy with the 1*4 panel suppliers results.
