With today’s technology, it’s easier than ever for photographers to create images that are not only breathtaking but also ignite our sense of wonder. Often, this is through photo manipulation in programs like Photoshop. But photographer Mathias Fast has recently introduced a fantastic photography hack that will give your images a fantastical, ethereal feel without you having to know your way around a computer. (Although it helps.) He simply uses his phone screen to add a reflective element to an image that makes an otherwise grounded composition feel like it’s floating.

Benefits of Project

The project is now the primary power source for the institution generating 60% of the power utilized by the hospital. ZESA is now supplementing the solar and a small 60kva generator was connected to the system to account for rainy days. As a result, power outages are no longer threatening patient welfare, and the cost of running a diesel generator as backup has been significantly reduced by almost 95%. Ultimately, the monthly utility bill has also reduced by more than 50% providing a very good return on investment
