Why should you share your travel photos and videos

 photo elnido_zpsm5fkjcok.jpg

The sense of sight is the most evolved of all our five senses. It uses a larger part of the brain than any other sense. A picture is worth a thousand words – it is also the memory of a time and place. Sharing these memories with family and friends is an age-old custom.

In days gone by, sharing pictures was a reason to get together. It happened face to face over a coffee or a drink. Each photo was passed around and accompanied with its unique story. A photo was something you held, it was touch and feel. Families bonded over these occasions, while reliving memories. But only a small select group, the ones who mattered, got to share these memories.

Today these memories are captured digitally and posted on multiple social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and dreamstime, among others. Most of the pictures you post are Free pictures that can be downloaded by anyone. You get to share them with a wider audience, but sharing is no longer a one on one experience. Connecting with your circle is via likes, comments and tags on your posts. The photo itself is no longer touch and feel. It’s something you see on a screen.

Sharing is no longer within your select group. It’s there for the world to see. Your family, friends and other travelers you may want to help. For some it can be intimidating, but below a certain age, it’s a way of life. Times have changed, but in other ways, things stay the same.

The power of a picture to capture your imagination remains unchanged. To see a picture and understand the emotion of the subject or the story the picture tells, can be a very powerful experience. At the end of the day, we are visual creatures. We are captivated by what we see. Sometimes we look at a picture and marvel at the photographer’s skill. If photography is your hobby and you want to get better at it, these are some tips you can keep in mind:

 

  • Light: The best light to capture practically any subject is an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset. The two help in creating very different moods.

 

  • Research the location: Make sure you visit the place before you shoot. Look at the view from different angles. Evaluate the impact from each angle.

 

  • Feel the place: Learn how to say hello in the local language. Greet people before you ask their permission to click them. Your photo has to be more than just visual. It should tell the story of the place – to convey that you have to experience it first. Get lost while exploring, sit in a café and watch the world go by. Don’t eat where you see tourists. Eat at places packed with locals.

People share pictures for different reasons. Sometimes it’s to relive their experience. Others post them on blogs or travel sites. If you have committed followers, sharing your photos is a way for them to connect with you.

Tips for a successful web design start-up

 photo Running-a-successful-business_zpspfnfdjcx.jpg

The digital media revolution has created many new opportunities and careers that did not exist in the past. Web designing is one such career that owes its existence to the growing role of digital media in our daily lives. While the basic rules of establishing and running a successful business remain the same, there are some important points that you must consider if you are planning on beginning a web design start-up.

Start now

If you wait for the right time to get started, then chances are that you will never get your venture off the ground. Every new venture requires a leap of faith. In the case of digital media start-ups operating in a saturated field like web designing, the leap is going to be a lot bigger and will require a lot of faith. However, you will find numerous obstacles melting away when you start implementing your plans.

Dare to be different

One cannot overemphasize the importance of this requirement in the world of start-ups. Take a look at some of the biggest leaders in the history of humankind. Leaders like Jesus Christ, Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, and Henry Ford share a common trait—the courage to be different. They all risked a lot by daring to be different. Some even paid the ultimate price for their beliefs. Yet, the only reason they are revered as religious, political, social, or industrial leaders is that they were never content sticking to the tried-and-tested routine.

Thinking out of the box is the only way to think

How did Apple end up as the ultimate benchmark for good-looking, high-quality products? Apart from making good-looking, high-quality products, the brains behind Apple were always focusing on ensuring that public perception of the Apple brand was continually associated with innovative and out of the box thinking.

The world loves disruptive thinking. It may not be bold enough to try this thought process itself, but it reveres anyone who has the ability to think differently. The fact that you are a fledgling web design start-up is irrelevant. What matters is how you want your brand to be perceived. Be prepared to go beyond the ordinary. This is easier said than done, but all successful brands have made it big by combining innovation with visionary thinking.

Be the best at what you do

A website’s design is the virtual face of the brand. A look at the website of Robert Rosenkranz clearly highlights his commitment and passion about arts, philanthropy and finance. Even those situated thousands of miles away have a clear idea about his views and opinions. Along with the text, the website’s design highlights certain traits of the individual—simplicity, organization, and clarity.

This enhances the scope of web design beyond the individual components of the site. Like language, web design may have its own set of rules and conventions, but what ultimately matters is getting the intended message across to others.

Conclusion

You can learn numerous lessons from the traits and habits of successful entrepreneurs who made it big in the real as well as virtual world. Ultimately, it is a question of going beyond your limitations to exploit your web designing talent and entrepreneurial skills to the fullest.

How to use graphics in interior design

 photo Google-Interior-Design-311_zpsianpjtfb.jpg

Gone are the days of simple paint and patterned wallpaper being the sole materials used to decorate the home. While paint and wallpaper are still decorating staples in most homes, there are other options available to homeowners looking to create a unique and more personal touch to their home’s interior decoration.

New technology

Technology presents new opportunities in the world of interior decoration because now, large and oversize stickers are being produced for use as decoration on walls. They offer a great alternative for those people who want to add a little individuality to their living space. Stickers also have the advantages of being relatively inexpensive, easy to apply, and just as easy to remove should the homeowner’s taste suddenly change. These stickers have a variety of names, including wall art, vinyl stickers, wall decals and even wall tattoos.

Aesthetics

Why should you forgo traditional paint and wallpaper in favor of wall decals? Because they can serve a variety of aesthetic, as well as practical purposes. For example, if your home has a space that is a little awkward to put furniture in or against but seems to look bare without having something to attract the eye, a decal placed on the wall, such as the representation of a picture frame, can provide aesthetic interest without real substance. You could even customize wallpaper and paint with carefully chosen wall decals so that a plain wall can suddenly be transformed into something unique and beautiful.

Graphics can also change the appearance of furniture. If you have a cheap-looking but entirely practicable piece of furniture that you do not like the look of, you can customize it with a decal to make it appear as if it is made of solid wood or even glass. You can even get semi-transparent graphic decals that are suitable for use on glass, so you can customize your glass doors and panels.

 photo graphics-at-space_i4_zpsd3a2tbbf.jpg

Practicality

Graphic decals can also serve a practical purpose. For example, a decal that represents a chalkboard, and functions as one too, can be put up in the kitchen area to remind you what needs to be bought on your next grocery shop, or it can serve as a To Do list in a home office or study. In a commercial space, such as an office, graphical word decals can highlight a particular area, such as where the copier is located or a designated rest zone. Using decals in this fashion allows you to avoid the need for three-dimensional and expensive signage.

Educational

Graphics can also be used as an educational tool for children in their playrooms and bedrooms. You could put a graphic of a map of the world on the wall to provide geographical information, or a graphic of the periodic table of elements to promote an interest in science.

Graphic decals are fast becoming a favorite of not only interior designers but also individuals in the home market who want to create a more individualized home for themselves. Indeed, they are an easy and quick way to add a little bit of personality to your home.
