How To Shoot and Edit Pro Interior Design Shots With Lightroom

Whether you're shooting for a restaurant, hotel or someone's personal home, interior design photography can be a great way for photographers to make money and become better known within the photo and business communities. Interior design photography might seem simple - there are generally no moving elements and you're free to manipulate the space as you wish. But there are a few common mistakes beginners make, and easy ways to avoid them. It's a common misconception that large, interior spaces need as wide of a lens as possible. Although a wide lens is helpful, it's not necessary and can sometimes be a detriment to the image. Most lenses that are wider than 24mm on most camera bodies will create a distorted, fish-eye effect.

This Brand Turns Your Heartbeat Into Jewelry

Staying connected 24/7 is tiring. Slaving away in front of a screen, whether it's a computer monitor, a smartphone or a television, will get you a one-way ticket to burnout-ville.

Fashion Forward Fairings Push Prosthetics into the Future with Style

Typically, the image of a prosthetic is depicted as cold, hard and metallic – a hollow, impersonal structure built for functionality and lacking any semblance of flair. Human prosthetics have come a long way in replicating the maneuvers and abilities of the limbs they replace, but that shouldn’t deter how they look aesthetically. That’s the idea behind Alleles Design Studio, which designs and produces ready to wear, customizable prosthetics that up the panache factor of what one might expect from the nuts and bolts of a medical prosthetic. Canadian artists McCauley Warner and Ryan Palibroda founded the studio after becoming inspired by the startling lack of options available for people who require prosthetics. They developed lavishly decorated and intricately detailed prosthetic...
