10 Food Photography Lighting Tips That Will Improve Your Photos

If you’ve ever heard that “natural light is best” for food photography, then you’re not alone. But natural light isn’t the only way to create beautiful food photography. In this post, we’re going to cover 10 tips to help you use lighting more effectively in your food photography.

1. Control Natural Light

Natural light is temperamental, we can’t control it, so things like the intensity, color temperature and direction are subject to change at any point throughout the shoot. But natural light can produce incredible food photos, so here are some ways you can work with natural light more successfully:

  1. Use a south-facing window. This will help you avoid direct sunlight, giving your photos a more consistent look.
  2. Use a diffuser. A diffuser is a thin sheet of material that is used to soften the light. When you’re working with natural...

Add Style to Your Office with an Easel Calendar

What is an Easel Calendar?

An easel is a type of unique photo calendar that stands on a wooden easel with 12 months’ worth of 5X7 inch cards. This differs from built-in spiral-bound desktop calendars. The thick matte cardstock makes this monthly desk calendar an excellent way to revisit your favorite photos and memories every day. Unlike traditional wall calendars, these calendars can stand up directly on the tabletop with their built-in support to help you keep track of your important dates from the start of the New Year. They make great gifts for loved ones or personal daily planners.

Is Living In A Van Legal – Everything You Need To Know

We all love living the van life and travelling in a van, but is living in a van legal in the eyes of the law? Thanks to our favourite Van Life Influencers and the wanderlust-inducing mouth-wateringly addictive content on our Van Life Instagram feeds, more and more people are throwing away the rulebook and giving alternative living a try.

The signs might be hard to spot for some, but now that I have spent a year away from the UK and travelling around Europe with other vandwellers, I’m amazed by how many vanlifers I have seen in and around Yorkshire. When I get into my van at night, it’s nice to know that there are other people in their tiny homes around about, smoke wafting lazily from their chimneys and a glint of light peeping from underneath their curtains.

How to Help Your Child Develop a Growth Mindset

Is your child one that gives up easily? Do they sulk and say “I can’t do it” when things get difficult?

Or is your child brave & resilient, knowing that with the right effort and strategies, she can accomplish anything?

These two very different mindsets start during childhood and follow your child right into adulthood. They are described by Dr Carol Dweck at Stanford University as a Fixed mindset vs a Growth mindset.

People with fixed mindsets believe that their skills and abilities can’t be altered in a significant way, that they are “fixed.” This is the child who believes they just aren’t good at math and that no matter what they do, they never will be. People with fixed mindsets avoid challenges and r...

The History Of The Camper Van – How Did Vanlife Start?

If you’re a regular reader on our site, then I think it’s safe to say that you’re a bonafide camper van enthusiast. We spend a lot of time scrolling through our favourite Van Life Instagram feeds and our top portable Tiny House YouTube Channels in a bid to learn more about how the van life culture is evolving and spreading across the globe. When I first started my journey to build a campervan, the vanlife hashtag had around 400’000 users. Yesterday’s count put it on a whopping 6million users; that’s a heck of a lot of growth in just two years.

But what do we know about the history of the camper van before social media threw vandwellers into the spotlight? Sure, we know that the Volkswagen Bus Camper played a big part in getting free spirits out of the city and into the wilderness, but the trail goes a lot further back than that. We’re going to take you on a ‘time-team’ style journey to the early 1800s and check out where the camper van first began. Think of...

Custom Steam Engine-Powered Motorcycle Looks Straight out of a Sci-Fi Fantasy

In 2014, Netherlands-based custom motorcycle shop Revatu Customs unveiled the Black Pearl, an utterly unique creation that looks like a cross between a motorcycle and a locomotive. The showpiece vehicle, which is named after Jack Sparrow’s infamous pirate ship, is powered by a functioning steam engine, with a rear wheel driven by a large crankshaft.

The one-of-a-kind motorcycle is perfect for steampunk enthusiasts or just fans of cool-looking rides. Although the Black Pearl may look impressive, however, riders are more likely to enjoy a leisurely pace than an adrenaline-filled race–the motorcycle travels at top speeds of only 5 miles per hour.

In Search of the Origin of “Silent Night”

In Search of the Origin of Silent Night

Silent nights are an uncommon occurrence in The Big Apple, but on a frosty evening in late November, a group of people are gathered at a Colonial-Era churchyard cemetery on the grounds of New York City’s Trinity Church. There’s a nip in the air, but it has zero effect on the feeling of warmth and fellowship amongst the crowd standing under the bright lights of the giant towers of the city’s Financial District.

On this night, Lower Manhattan’s nocturnal cacophony of howling sirens, honking car horns and the bustling bleat of holiday shoppers will be stilled for a moment or two. The occasion: an outdoor concert celebrating the bicentennial of one of the world’s most beloved...
