Photography Backdrops For Different Occasions

April 15, 2017
By

It is a common practice in the old days for most family to have their family photos taken in the photo studio or photo salon. Those days not many people can afford to own a camera and whenever they want to have a photo of a special event taken, they will have it done in a photo studio.

Can you remember seeing photos of naked babies lying on their stomach on table tops in homes and photos studios? If the photos were taken in photo studio, you will notice in the background some photography backdrops for newborn & children. I am sure some of you have your photos taken in the same manner and when you grew up and were shy of these naked baby photos, you hid them away from your friends and relatives.

Nowadays we seldom go to photo studios to have our photos taken. We only do so when we need to take standard sized photos for processing legal documents like for example, to apply for passport, national identity card or driving license, etc. When you go to have your photos taken, you will notice that the backdrop behind you will be a plain coloured backdrop. And if you are there for your wedding photos or someone else wedding photos, you will notice that they change the backdrops every now and then to create different background. The photo studio arranged for wedding photo backdrops set for pictures. Some of them look so natural to make it look like the photos were taken in the park or garden.

Gone were the days when photography backdrops were plain and boring. Nowadays, the backdrops are designed for different occasions and to suit individual’s preferences. There seems to be a backdrop to meet everyone’s taste. To mention a few, there are photography backdrops for weddings, children, family, Christmas, Easter, etc.

 

5 Medical Treatments That Are Perfect for an Urgent Care Clinic

April 11, 2017
By

The creation of urgent care clinics has been welcomed by all who seek medical treatment for serious injuries and illnesses that are not quite bad enough to suffer the long waits and expense of a traditional emergency room. Below are five of the most common treatments sought out for urgent care.

Severe Cold and Flu Symptoms

The onset of a severe cold or the flu can leave you feeling miserable. No one wants to sit and wait for hours at a traditional emergency room to be seen about a serious head cold, but you typically hate to wait to see a doctor if it strikes after office hours. An urgent care clinic will see you quickly, affordably and get you set up with the medications you need to start feeling better.

Muscle Strains and Pulls

Strenuous exercise and work detail can mean feeling the pain of a strain or muscle pull later in the day. The pain can make it difficult to sleep. Visit an urgent care clinic to have a doctor look at the injury to make sure it is not serious. They will assist in making you more comfortable on your journey back to full health.

X-Rays for Fractures

It is not possible to look at an arm or leg and tell if a bone is broken or fractured. There are times that it is best to seek an x-ray for confirmation. Broken bones can be handled properly in an urgent care clinic in less time than your typical emergency room. There are some broken bones that may require surgery, but a simple compound fracture can be handled with an office visit.

Quick-Return Testing

When you are not feeling well, but have no idea what is wrong, you need answers. An urgent care clinic can provide diagnostic testing with exceptionally fast turn-around time. You will know quickly what is wrong and what it will take to feel better.

Shallow Cut Stitches

Deep lacerations and wounds need to be handled at a traditional emergency room. There could be extensive damage that an urgent care clinic cannot repair on-site. Smaller and more shallow cuts requiring stitches can be easily managed at urgent care centers. You will be stitched, wrapped up and sent on your way quickly.

Draw Out Your Drawing Talents With These 5 Jobs

February 1, 2017
By

Image Source

Art is often ridiculed as a subject that won’t get you a job. But being able to draw well is in fact a valuable skill that can lead to a very well-paid profession. Here are a few examples of jobs that require your drawing talents.

Graphic design

Graphic design is essential to almost every product around us. On top of technical drawing, many products will require a sketch drawing which is freehand and requires more artistic ability. Branding such as packaging, logo-building and ad design also relies heavily on the more arty side of drawing, with designers having to draw cartoon characters or inventing iconographies. Familiarising yourself with certain graphics design programmes such as Adobe Illustrator can be useful (there are many Illustrator training courses available). Graphic design tablets and styluses have made digital drawing a lot easier – you can practically draw as if you were using paper and pen, with the added bonus that you can digitally erase.

Cartoons

Finding full-time work as a cartoonist is difficult but if you look hard enough you’ll find it. You may not land a job illustrating a comic strip or providing the animation for a Disney movie, but you may be able to provide political cartoons to newspapers or provide humorous cartoons for a kids magazine. If you’re bold enough, you can even take to the streets and offer caricatures. Many cartoonists will work on a freelance basis. Build up a portfolio and you’ll eventually be able to attract your own clients.

Illustrating

Publishing companies will often work with illustrators, providing writers with images for their books. Getting one’s foot in the door can be difficult – many will create blogs of their artwork and then approach publishing companies and authors individually. Children’s books are a particularly good way in as these are more picture-heavy. Illustrators may also be required for instruction manuals – whilst this can sometimes be more technical, pictures of people and hands may be needed that require a more skilled artist.

Album artwork

Whilst some musicians are happy to use a photo in their press pack, others prefer to have hand-drawn artwork to go with their albums and singles. This can be a lucrative market, although may require a lot of networking with local musicians. Eventually you can build up a portfolio which you can use to attract clients. Band, PR companies and music agents may recommend you based on your previous work.

Courtroom sketching

Before photography, courtroom sketching was commonplace. It has recently become more widespread, with many courts banning photographers. Courtroom sketches involve drawing a picture of courtroom proceedings and require a certain level of drawing talent. You don’t need to be legally trained, although an art degree may be favourable in many cases, as well as the ability to work in a short time frame.

What is the greatest album cover ever created?

January 11, 2017
By

Have you even wondered on what are the best album cover created in the entire music industry as for today? well actually, there are a bunch out there and there’s still keep on producing album hence there’s a new cover album to be included in the list. But as for today and as you’re an avid fan of the oldies songs you might got your list already in mind that you think is the greatest album cover ever created.

But if not, you can check my list below see it yourself on how awesome these albums are and their artists that am sure your parents will appreciate much..

While the music on an album is of upmost importance, the sleeve that holds the record gives artists a space for artistic expression. This has always been the case; from the first microgroove long-playing phonograph that was released in 1948, through the vinyl era and the many CDs that you see in music stores today.

However, which is the greatest album cover that has ever been created? Managed print specialist United Carlton has attempted to find out by drawing up a shortlist of six standout examples.

Take a look at each pick and then visit the firm’s Twitter page to give your thoughts on the best of the bunch, or offer your favourite that didn’t make the list:

The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.thebeatles.com/album/sgt-peppers-lonely-hearts-club-band)

What better way to kick off our list than with the cover of a Grammy-winning album that was created by art champion and director Robert Fraser? The sleeve was a combination of work by designers Jann Haworth and Peter Blake and saw more than 70 artists, writers, thinkers and figures who inspired The Beatles featured. As a subtle nod to the end of the Hard Day’s Night-fueled Beatlemania era, the cover also saw the iconic British band as they were in 1967 standing alongside their younger selves.

The Beatles – Abbey Road

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.thebeatles.com/album/abbey-road)

The Beatles are the only band to make our list twice, though it shouldn’t be much of a surprise when you consider that the two album covers featured are those for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road. For the latter, the famous foursome chose to part ways with simulations and instead feature themselves walking across a zebra crossing in a typical British street. It is a scene that has been replicated countless times ever since.

Pink Floyd – Dark Side Of The Moon

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/reviews/gncz/)

Legendary designers Hipgnosis were the brains behind the cover for Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side Of The Moon, with a single beam of light shining through a prism and forming a rainbow on the other side creating a simple yet bold look. This image was used to convey the band’s stage lighting as well as the lyrics some of the album’s songs. It also speaks volume that despite the sleeve having no words, most people instantly knows its name and the band behind it.

Nirvana – Nevermind

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/nevermind-anniversary-nirvana-baby-kurt-cobain-dave-grohl-a7328811.html)

The cover for Nirvana’s album Nevermind was apparently conceptualised after Kurt Cobain watched a programme about water births. After hiring photographer Kirk Weddle to bring the sleeve into reality, the result was an innocent baby swimming underwater towards a dollar bill that was hanging from a fishhook. The rest was history.

Meat Loaf – Bat Out Of Hell

(Cover can be seen here: https://www.discogs.com/Meat-Loaf-Bat-Out-Of-Hell/release/2831488)

The songs featured on Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell were crazy in a good way, so it was fitting that the sleeve of the record was just as brilliantly wild. Conceptualised by Jim Steinman but actually created by comic book artist Richard Corben, the cover saw a motorcycle powering out of a graveyard while a giant bat loomed menacingly over the tombstones in the background.

Queen – Queen II

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.queenonline.com/en/the-band/discography/queen-ii/)

Music fans are likely to recognise the sleeve of Queen’s album Queen II, as it also features in the music video for the band’s hit single Bohemian Rhapsody. The cover is a simple one, with the four members of Queen standing in a diamond formation upon a black background. Rock, who had enjoyed work with the likes of David Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, has since being quoted as saying: “It made them look like much bigger a deal then they were at the time, but it was a true reflection of their music.”

Hair Replacement Systems To The Rescue

November 25, 2016
By

Are you feeling down and depressed because of thinning hair or worse still, facing the possibility of baldness at the threshold of middle age? With advanced technology, you need not have to worry because gone were the days when wigs looked so obvious on the wearer’s head and usually made the wearer so uncomfortable, hot and may even cause itchiness. Instead of solving problems, the old fashioned wigs usually cause more embarrassment and stress to the wearers.

In today’s world, the modern hair replacement systems are constructed with great care and the comfort of the wearer are taken into consideration. Those days, the wigs were usually of free-size to suit all head sizes. These wigs usually will not fit properly for most wearers and cause great stress for the wearer because ill-fitting wigs could easily come off and cause much embarrassment to the wearers.

If I am not mistaken, I think there are 2 main types of hair replacement systems. The first one is stock replacement system where the products are mass produced. These are stocked and readily available as and when the orders come in. These are less expensive but may not be practical or suitable for every individual because of different head sizes and requirements.

Another type is the custom made hair replacement systems, made according to the specific measurements of the head size. The customers can order according to their hair colour, texture, length, etc. to even suit their complexion for the hair replacement to be as natural as possible. The hair replacement systems are made from materials that are lighter and great care are taken during crafting for a more natural appearance.

There are different ways of attaching the hair replacement and wearers can use whichever one that is most suitable and convenient to them. It is best to follow the guidelines of the products purchased for best results.

How To Plan For A Stylish Wedding

October 28, 2016

Weddings bring out the best in us. Weddings are a time to showcase traditions and time honoured elegance. Weddings also allow us to celebrate with some of the best in party decor, fashion, and entertainment. A great wedding brings together all of the elements of style, tradition, food, fashion, and entertainment. It offers these elements in unison to the couple in order to create a day that will be engrained in their hearts and minds forever. This is why it is imperative that everything is perfect for the big day. Below you will find a checklist of the most important facets of planning for a stylish wedding.

Before You Begin
Before you can even begin to plan for your wedding, you must first draw up a budget. Once you know how much you can afford to spend on stylish venues, food, entertainment, and other elements of the wedding, then you can begin planning the details. Your first act after creating a budget should be collecting a “planning team.” During this process, you will find it helpful to hire a wedding planner to assist with the numerous details.

Venues
Preparing your guest list and searching for venues should be one of your first moves. Look for stylish ceremony and reception sites that fit the vision you have for your big day. Consider your options for entertainment and how they will work in your wedding spaces. Would you like a pianist, violinist, a DJ, or a band? Once you have a general idea of what you are looking for, you can begin interviewing the vendors for your wedding.

Invitations
Now that you have the date, venues, and guest listed nailed down, you can begin sending out your save-the-date cards and invitations. If you would like invitations that are professionally addressed, hire a calligrapher.

Food
Do your research and find a caterer for the reception. Additionally interview and book a cake designer. Cakes are especially important as they are the centerpiece of your weddings culinary delights.

Photography Check
Find a photographer or videographer who has style consistent with your wedding. For an epic and stylish shoot, consider Bloomsbury wedding videography. Bloomsbury is one of the world’s top 25 wedding cinematographers.

Floral Arrangements And Decor
Floral arrangements and decor should be in keeping with the theme of your wedding. If you have hired a professional wedding planner, they will help coordinate the floral and decorative arrangements for your event.

Style
The style of what you wear and how you wear it is essential in creating the perfect day. Order your bridesmaids’ dresses and wedding dress months in advance. Later, you can adjust and fit the dresses if any changes need to made. Interview and “try out” several stylists and make-up artists. After all, you only get one day to get it right. Additionally, the men’s wear should be planned for several months in advance to accommodate for fittings.
