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.

 

The Before And After Treatment Photos

April 15, 2017
By

I have noticed one thing about advertisement. In order to capture the interest of prospective clients, most businesses make use of the before and after photos in their advertisement. Take for example an advertisement posted by a beauty salon showing the pimpled face of a woman before treatment and a photo of smooth skin face after treatment. Or it could be photos of an over-weight man or woman before treatment and a slim looking man and woman after treatment.

Likewise, it is also true for hair treatment salons where you will most probably find photos of men or women with thinning hair before their treatment and photos showing their fully crowned head with nice, healthy hair after their treatment. The before and after photos are great advertising tools to promote the effectiveness of their treatment or products.

Since we are on this topic of hair salons and hair treatment, I would like to mention that I came across this article of a website looking for hair salon and hair stylist cooperation with them. What are the benefits for the salon and hair stylist if you choose to be one of their associates? One, you get to buy their products at discounted wholesale price. Two, your salon will be promoted and recommended on their website as a specialist salon for cutting and other hair maintenance services in your region. Of course there are more benefits attached.

On your part, you will need to provide them with examples of your clients’ photos, both before and after their hair replacement treatment or a video of them wearing hair replacement system. If possible, they would also like to interview clients who wear the mono or lace hair replacement systems. If you are interested and are looking for a win-win solution, you can check it out at newhairline website for more details.

April 10, 2017
By

Ever since I’ve started this blog in 2010. I see to it that I have a small section for the timepieces especially to those limited edition. Why? no! actually, there’s no particular reasons why I keep on blogging them I just simply found them dope and interesting and of course for my reader’s sake who are fond with timepieces like myself. Hence, whenever I’ve found new item at the web from these brands that are my fave I’ll definitely put them up here immediately for me to share with you what I’ve recently learned that might get your interests too.

Recently on the news the brand called HODINKEE had partnered with to Ressence, another brand, to release this awesome quirky watch here that they’ve called: Type 1H. The watch is very techo and modernized unlike with the other timepieces there that are quite classy to wear but the Type 1H is way different as you can wear it off in both casual and formal gatherings and even while having your favorite sports on.

The watch is already released in the market and has a hefty valued at $22,500 USD which I dont even see myself spending off that much. But to those who has spare and wanting this kind of watch I must say it’s still worth to buy as it goes your personal investment too. For more details you can always check HODINKEE or Ressence main website for updates.

You may now take a look the new kicks made of Adidas originals that you could expect to be available anytime soon now. Actually, Camo prints are been in trend for the last 3 years now and still the prints are often use in the pieces that these brands are producing, I think, people has a great response having them a camo on their wardrobe hence brands are keep on releasing any pieces that has camo prints on them.

Actually, I dont see any different with this one than to the regular adidas shoes it has also the famous 3 strips on it and the design is pretty usual too and I think the price is also same to their old kind of shoes. As for the availability of this shoe and the proper pricing range – as of now I dont know it yet as the brand hasn’t release an press release on when they’ll be going to sell this out in the market thus I cant give you the right details on it but am pretty sure that anytime this month or by the first week of April they will give us an update in this. Just let us all wait though.

March 22, 2017
By

When it comes to men’s flip flops today, the most consider type that I can see was this sliders though regular wearable slippers are on point still for your fashion styling and yet this sliders gives an extra point as you wear it off on your total outfit as long as you know on how to rock it or even style it base on your  personal styling. But if you were asking me though, I’d still consider the regular slipper than these. Because I need to consider the type of weather Ive got here,where I do resides, but of course It’s still doable for me to wear it but I just choose not because I get easily annoyed when my feet gets stuffed and quite sweaty thee feels hence it’s good for me though for not wearing it at all.

Recently, the Canada based brand called Raised by Wolves had released their new sliders “f*ck off ” collection that comes in the color red. I must say, this flip flop really suits in the upcoming season, spring, because everyone’s considered any colored items by the spring came by hence this might be a big hit as it was releases in the market soon. And as I’ve heard this red slider has a price of  $39 USD per each and the other colors has different pricing which I haven’t know it yet. For those interested to know the further details about their collection, I’ll then encourage you to check them out over their main site for more information as I dont have the fully press release with me yet, bear with me then..

How to Find Deals on Sunglasses

March 9, 2017
By

Sunglasses are an item that most people are going to need every now and then. You might need to replace your current pair. There is also the chance that a member of your family needs a new pair of sunglasses. Whatever the case may be, there are an enormous amount of sites that sell this particular item. How do you decide which is the best place to make your purchases? There are a number of things that you need to take into consideration before you start spending money. Here are some tips that will enable you to save some cash on sunglasses.

1. Look for sites that notify their customers about sales via text and email.

It is becoming more common for online businesses to attract new customers by letting them know about the sales that they will have coming up. One of the most popular methods for doing this is to allow the customers to sign up to receive text or email alerts every time the site will have a sale. The message will give the date and time the sale is scheduled to begin. Try to find sites that sell sunglasses that offer this service to their customers.

2. Look for sites that sell used sunglasses.

You should not care if the sunglasses you wear are brand new. All you should care about is how they look. There are many sites where you can pick up some stunning sunglasses that are used. Therefore, you will pay only a fraction of what they cost when they were brand new. The one thing you need to keep in mind is that most stores that sell used sunglasses will not accept any returns. All sales are final.

3. Look for sites that sell their sunglasses wholesale.

It would be in your best interests to spend some time looking for sites where you can browse through a selection of wholesale sunglasses. You will be able to save a great deal of money this way. You just need to show patience and look at all of the wholesale sites you can find. It might take you a while to do this. However, the time you spend will be well worth it because you will end up paying considerably less for your sunglasses. However, keep a close eye on the shipping fees to make sure you don’t get overcharged.

Romeo and Juliet couture clothing

February 14, 2017
By

Fashion trends continue to change and evolve each year as new looks are seen on the runway. Many people want to enhance their wardrobe with the latest styles to increase their self-confidence while looking youthful. When it comes to looking chic and sophisticated, there are a few fashion trends to follow in the new year.

Pleated Skirts

Pleated skirts are playful and fun when you want to look flirty with your style. Pleated skirts were a hit in the ’90s and have returned to the fashion scene with a schoolgirl look that is hip and can be worn with flats or boots. Rock a pleated mini skirt that is shorter in length when you want a modern take on the fashion trend, which can be paired with a crop top or a loose blouse.

Bomber Jackets

Bomber jackets are edgy and are a unisex clothing item that can be worn with a pair of military boots or high-tops. The jackets look best when worn over casual t-shirts and tanks when you want to cover up and keep warm in the cold. Many bomber jackets come with quilted materials, military green, and chic metallic. Those who want more detail on their jacket can choose one that is embroidered with floral details.

Lace Skirts

Lace skirts from brands like Romeo and Juliet couture clothing are popular for the delicate design of the garment, which often feature an a-line silhouette. Lace skirts are romantic and feminine when you want to wear semi-formal attire to a wedding or party. Pair the lace skirts with stilettos or strappy sandals to make an impression.

Off-The-Shoulder Top

Off-the-shoulder tops are flirty and fun when you want to show a little skin. The tops can feature thin straps or a thick tank top underneath for a unique look that is runway-inspired and has a bit of a twist. The off-the-shoulder detail is also seen on casual and formal dresses, which has been used by some of the top brands in the fashion industry.

Statement Sleeves

Statement sleeves nod to the 70s and 80s with added flair that is used on the top of blouses. The bold and dramatic style creates a lovely silhouette that can be worn with flared jeans or a mini skirt.

To look professional at the office and feel confident in your personal life, it’s important to keep up with the latest trends so you can look your best. You’ll look fashion-forward and can create a modern appearance when you’re headed to class or to the office.

Four Benefits of Investing in a Custom-Made Suit

February 2, 2017
By

Tailored suits have long been associated with successful and affluent gentlemen who always look their best. Whether you need to invest in a new suit for your wedding, a friend or family member’s wedding, another important family event such as a christening, a big job interview or simply need something new to wear for work as you’re getting a promotion, there are many benefits to be had when you get your new suit custom made. Let’s have a look at some of the best benefits of investing in a tailor made suit.

Perfect Fit For You

If you’ve ever tried on a suit and you love it but it just doesn’t quite fit properly, then you’ll love the idea of getting a custom made suit. You can find many custom made suits online, where all you will need to do is simply put in your measurements, choose the type of fabric and colour that you would like, and wait for your unique, custom-made suit to arrive. You can rest assured that when you wear your suit it will flatter your figure and fit you perfectly in all the right places, meaning that it’ll be comfortable, too!

Better Quality

For the most part, purchasing a custom made suit means that you can enjoy a better quality of clothing. When you buy off the rack suits in a department store, they are usually made with cheaper fabric in order to be able to mass produce the number of suits on sale. Buying custom made often means going to a smaller, independent tailor and since the demand is lower, those who provide custom made suits are able to invest in better quality fabrics, tools and equipment to produce your suit.

Save Money

A custom made suit may be more expensive to buy initially, but in the long run, it can actually be a great way of saving money on fashion. If you purchase a suit that’s black, navy, or grey for example, you will be able to wear it again and again for various occasions and even for work, allowing you to get the most wear for your money. So, if you’re looking for great value, opt for custom made!

Future Alterations

One of the best things about a custom made suit is that in the future; it’s often easier to get them altered than off-the-rack suits from a clothing store. Since we don’t all stay the same shape and size throughout our lives, if you find that in a few years’ time you no longer fit into your custom made suit as it is now too big or small, you will usually be able to take it back to the tailor who made it and have it altered to fit your current size perfectly.

A good suit is something that every man should have in his wardrobe! If you need to invest in a new suit for yourself, opting for a custom-made design will ensure that you get the perfect fit and style for yourself.

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.
