5 food shooting techniques

Published

on

Let’s discover 5 simple yet highly effective tricks for taking beautiful and tempting food photos with your iPhone.

 

1  Looking for natural light

If you have a great balcony or window sill, it is best to shoot in the morning when the sun shines in through the window. During this time, you can also use the backlight angle for shooting, the backlight makes the food feel bright and warm.

 

 

2  Shooting from above

Try different shooting angles. Shooting from above is often the best choice, especially when the food is arranged on a plate or bowl. Shooting from above has several benefits. It allows you to include all the details of the food and the background, and it emphasizes the bold shapes of the dishes, cutlery and other objects within the scene.

 

 

 

3  Arrange Your Food Neatly

Arrange your food in a neat or unique way to create visual interest and balance. Playing around with fruits and vegetables, cut them into similar shapes and create patterns on your plate or baking tray. The way you arrange your food will have a big impact on the final image. Composition is the key to great food photography, and the position of each element in the scene should be carefully thought out.

 

 

4  Give it a bite

It doesn’t have to be an unbearable tooth mark or bite mark. But you can try to create photos of food that are “being eaten” or “about to be eaten”. This method can not only create photos with stories, but also show beautiful cross-sections of food. If the filling of your food is liquid or semi liquid (such as lava chocolate), then this shooting method will be very suitable for this way of expression.

 

 

5  Decorate The Scene

To make your photos look more interesting you may consider decorating the scene with some other smaller items. One of the methods is to include some flowers or some of the dry ingredients that you use for cooking the food. For e.g some berries, fruit pieces, nuts, chocolate pieces and fresh herbs.

Apart from adding interest to the composition, this can also help to create a “visual recipe” for your food photo.

5 things of internet “New Normal”

Published

By

Here are 5 tips that will help you adapt to the internet “new normal” that is prevailing during this pandemic.

 

Online And Virtual Training Is The Go-To Option

With travel time and costs being slashed totally, many people are investing their newfound wealth into developing themselves. They are doing this via courses and thus, they are looking for short courses rather than longer ones, primarily for two reasons. The first being that nobody knows how long “working from home” will continue, and the second being that shorter courses allow learners to complete multiple ones in the same stipulated amount of time.

 

The Training Paradigm Will Change

 

Previously, the format was like 70% of the course was offline and the rest was virtual. Now the scenario has been reversed, and online learning is taking up to more than 70% of the course and the rest is offline. Thus, online courses need to be more detailed to make up for this shift in control in order to help users navigate easily through a course.

 

Doubts And Clarification Need To Be Addressed Online

eLearning will be the new norm for the learning experience, and doubts and clarification classes need to be held online. There should be enough manpower or LMS capability to handle all of them. Thus, an LMS should be ready to handle the huge workload and the traffic that might come its way.

 

A Huge Number Of New Recruits

After the pandemic ends and the recession period is over, there will be a huge list of new recruitments needed to fill the laid-off employees’ positions. Thus, they will all need to be trained. Doing this online is the best way instead of scheduling class after class offline; the instructor will also become tired. Also, scheduling classes offline will consume unnecessary resources, and this can be avoided if scheduling is done online. Thus, keeping it online and preparing new content for the freshers is a good way to be ahead of the curve and prepare yourself for the future.

 

Training Media Will Be New

AR/VR will become widespread entities in the near future. This can be used for skill-based training in order to simulate an identical environment for sales or other complex topics that require proper hands-on training. This is a concept for the future when a course can be ported for AR/VR mediums too. This type of content will enable trainers to choose an experience rather than other content styles. This type of content will help the learners be more active and pay attention to the course.

5 Ways to Boost Your Immune System

Published

on

By

Experts say that boosting your immune system may also give you an edge in staying healthy. Here are five smart steps to add to your to-do list now.

 

1  Stay active

 

 

Working out is a powerful way to boost your immune system. It causes your body’s antibodies and white blood cells to circulate more rapidly, which means they may be able to detect and zero in on bugs more quickly. Being active this way also lowers stress hormones, which reduces your chances of getting sick.

2  Watch your diet

 

 

 

Eighty per cent of your immune system is in the gut, so when it’s healthy, we tend to be able to fight off infections faster and better. When it’s not, our immune system is weaker and more susceptible to fighting off infection.

 

3  Stay on top of stress

 

There’s a strong link between your immune health and your mental health. When you’re under chronic stress or anxiety, your body produces stress hormones that suppress your immune system. People who are stressed are more susceptible to developing the common cold.

 

4  Get enough sleep

Z’s are another natural immune system booster. Your immune system is like your computer — it needs moments of rest so it doesn’t become overheated. Sleep reboots the system.

 

5  Be strategic about supplements

 

 

There’s no magic herb or vitamin you can pop to automatically prevent a cold, flu or other viruses. A study found that a moderate daily dose of vitamin D may offer protection if you’re already low in the sunshine vitamin.
