Can a balloon improve your photos?

“The trick is to hold the balloon against a built-in flash light. It acts as a diffuser and smoothens out any harsh beams. You can even use different color balloons to experiment with different tones of light. The best part? The cost of this awesome hack is practically $0. This Russian duo is constantly uploading useful photography-orientated content, so check out their channel if you’re looking for more tips”

This is what this two guys are saying about photography and it seems really cool, will it work?

Emma Watson refuses to wear a Corset for the Beauty and the Beast remake

Watson, a self-proclaimed feminist and UN Women Global Ambassador, had her own ideas for her role. In addition to making Belle an inventor (you slay, queen), Emma stated in an interview with EW that she would not wear a corset in the remake.

Emma wanted Belle to be an “active” princess, not one who would be held up with a restrictive corset.

Watson worked closely with the designer to ensure it wouldn’t “impede” her backstory of being a princess who actually does more than sit around while still keeping the magical and whimsical Disney Princess feel of a ball-gown.

Emma’s re-imagination of the role is a good place to start in sending this message to kids (and sadly, should also be seen by many adults) of all genders.

Women: we’re here. We’re more than waistlines. And we will continue to trail blaze into 2017 and beyond. Thanks Emma, for taking that message to the big screen.

From Kimonos to Wedding Dresses

It’s not uncommon for modern Japanese weddings to combine Shinto wedding traditions with various elements of Western weddings. Traditionally a Japanese bride would wear a furisode long-sleeve Kimono, but some brides are modifying their garments to add their own unique spin on the traditional Western wedding dress.

By folding the sleeves down and tying them into a decorative bow at the back, their Kimonos are suddenly turned into elegant strapless dresses.

The best part is that because the alterations are all superficial, the wedding dress can easily be turned back into a Kimono. So instead of having a wedding dress that you wear once and then leave in the closet to collect dust forever, why not try something different?
