Some Tips for Using SLR lenses for Digital Photography

SLR lenses are ones with which you can get the best out of your pictures and photos. You can try out either a 16 or 18 mm lens with your camera. If you want to have a wide angle shot then it is preferable that you go with your 18 mm lens as it allows more light in or else the 16 mm would be just appropriate for normal usage. In case you want to shoot an object which is far from your camera at an approximate distance of about 10 feet then you can go up to 200 mm and then just focus on the object with your camera and take a perfect shot.

An SLR lens would always give you absolute picture clarity which would be otherwise impossible to obtain from any other type of lenses and hence if you want to take photography on a serious note then you must use SLR lenses for digital photography.

Does it Matter to Soundproof Your Sink?

Soundproofing a sink is not always necessary but if you find that the noise is unbearable then you may go for soundproofing. Newer sinks are always built of materials that absorb sound well like fiberglass and hence they do not need any soundproofing. Older sinks are generally made of metals and may sometimes generate too much noise with the sound of water splashing onto it or during washing of utensils and hence they generally need to be soundproofed. Mass loaded vinyl is one common material used for soundproofing and is applied underneath the bottom of the sink and can effectively absorb noise.

You can also use acoustical foam for absorbing sound especially when the area underneath the sink is in the form of a cabinet and adds to the noise by creating an echo. As the sound generally comes from the base hence you may also choose to alter the area of the base in order to change the amount of sound being emitted which is exactly what is done with acoustical foam.
