Decorative and Protective Tools in Leatherwork

Leatherwork tools are relevant to the production of the item and largely influence its forming as well as final outlook. Therefore, a leatherwork artist must know the distinctive and usage of each of these tools especially the controversial ones such as the piercing, decorative, and protective devices.

1. Piercing Tools-
These tools are used for creating holes in leather articles before stitching or thonging. Examples of thonging tools are:

Thonging Chisel: It is used for making slits for thonging.

Snap Setter: This tool is used in punching to prevent rivet caps from getting damaged.

Thonging Punch: This tool is used for creating several holes at a time before stitching. It is also used for making and spacing slits.

Lacing Nippers: This is a handy tool that looks like pliers but is used for punching slits at areas of a leather article that cannot lie flat.

Overstitch Wheels: These tools are used to mark spacing holes especially in saddle stitching.

2. Decorative Tools-
This category of leather tools helps in improving the general appearance, hand, and attractiveness of leather articles. Examples of decorative tools used in leatherwork include:

Nose Mask: It is worn on the nose to prevent the leather craftsman from inhaling toxic chemicals and dyes that are harmful to one’s health.

Apron: This is worn on the body of the leather artist to prevent him from soiling or staining himself and his apparels from liquors and other colouring mediums.

Tool Box: It is a special box in which leather tools are kept for safekeeping.

How to Approach Promotional Modeling Agencies

Promotional modeling is a specific form of modeling targeted at promoting a good, service or brand. It is not to be confused with being an ambassador for a brand, but rather its primary intention is to create a positive appeal for the brand in order to boost sales.

How should you Look Like?

The harsh truth of the industry is that a certain standard or conventional body size and beautiful figure will be expected of you in promotional modeling. This is because clients would naturally want themselves and the public to associate these models positively with their brand. The restrictions are definitely much lower than that of fashion models, and the work is relatively much less stressful, however, in general, a height of above 165cm and a slender figure would be expected.

Also keep in mind when approaching a modeling agency to not wear anything too grand or fanciful. Anything that you are comfortable with, akin to a t-shirt and jeans style, is enough during your casting call or audition. This is because as a promotional model there will be a large variety of clothes you will wear depending on your client’s contract offer, hence just wear simple clothes, with simple makeup and let the clients and modeling agencies use their creativity to assess the suitability of your look with the style that they want.

Communicative Skills

Work on speaking fluently and confidently when you approach a modeling agency. As a promotional model looking good is just one aspect; a more important aspect is your ability to sell a product, service or idea. You should be able to engage with customers in conversation and convince them of your product or service’s benefits.

This becomes even more important if you can establish yourself to be a spokes model. You will sign a contract with a company and represent the company as the face of the brand. You would be appearing in advertisements, traveling around, and meeting with various people associated with your brand. You should thus be able to articulate the work you do and add value to the brand, product or service you are modeling for.

Research on the Various Industry Types

There are a plethora of industries promotional models can be in. You should identify some key industries of your interest and identify the modeling agencies that have successfully placed models in such industries. For example, if you love cars or love motor vehicles, perhaps the design, speed and other aspects of it, then your interest to work as a promotional model could likely lie in the automobile industry. You should then approach an agency by researching on their background work first and in your first interview state your passion and preferences for the industry and work you would like to be involved in.

However, if you are a model starting out don’t get too choosy. Take up the job opportunities you get first. Gain industry experience, modeling expertise and prove your worth to the agency. Soon enough you will be considered for the modeling work that you like. Your networking skills will not only land you the job as a promotional model but will also mean how fast you progress in the industry.

Increase Your Productivity by Finding Time for Quiet

Distractions are everywhere today, and quiet is hard to come by. It’s a fact of life in the 21st century.

We live in an age of constant connection, instant access and googling everything. And as wonderful as that can be, sometimes don’t you just feel besieged with task, choices, opportunities, and information?

The on-line marketing expert Connie Ragen Green once wrote: “Choose time every day that is designated just for you.” She then went on to specifically suggest that you find time for an hour of quiet contemplation and then an hour of productive writing.

While two one-hour blocks of time may be difficult to find each day, I enthusiastically support the general idea of setting aside time every day for quiet. And here’s why I say that:

Self-care is the root of your successful time management. It replenishes your energy and sharpens your focus.
It reinforces your sense of your own power. You are in charge of your time choices, and you always have choices, no matter what. This helps overcome stress and feelings of victimization that can accompany overwhelm.
Giving yourself the gift of time for quiet and contemplation gets your creative ideas flowing like water from its well-spring.

BONUS TIP: As I mentioned above, finding two one-hour blocks of time in your day won’t always be possible — at least not for most of us. So, one thing I’ve found very helpful in my own life is to “think small.”

You might try looking at your time in 15-minute increments. That way you’re less likely to set aside an activity (like spending quiet time) by telling yourself you just don’t have enough hours in the day. You can nearly always find 10 or 15-minutes.

And you know what? You’ll be amazed at how thinking in these smaller time increments can change things for you. Chunking tasks down into smaller timeframes makes them that-much-more possible, whether it’s a self-care activity or something on your to-do list, Smaller steps make it easier to start, and you can’t get anywhere until you do start — so “thinking 15” is an excellent addition to your time toolbox!

Areas of Enterprise in Leatherwork

Leatherwork as a field of the visual arts has numerous viable enterprises. These enterprises offer several career opportunities to many people in the Ghanaian community. Students of leatherwork with their practical expertise can set up their own small-scale industries to cater for themselves and their families and more importantly even employ other persons. These areas of enterprises in leatherwork do not require huge capital for one to establish an enterprise. In fact, an individual can start the business right from his house with a small table and some few hand tools and materials. Let us use this unit to highlight some of these areas of enterprises in leatherwork.

Some of the areas of enterprises in leatherwork are:
1. Tanning
2. Upholstering
3. Designing and making leather items
4. Trading leather items

1. Tanning-

This area of enterprise deals with the production of leather as a material. It is responsible for the processing of hides and skins into leather. The leather artist can set up his own tannery as an enterprise where he would operate. Setting up a tannery though quite demanding, generates a lot of income. The artist should think seriously about the location, capital and labor force since these factors will largely affect the success or failure of his tannery enterprise.

2. Upholstering-

This sector of leatherwork concerns itself with the production of suitable furnishes for homes, offices, and more especially automobiles. It is a very wide area that provides several job avenues for leather craftsmen. They produce furniture, foot and arm rests, table mats, car seating, floral vases for decoration etc. With careful planning, this enterprise booms a lot of income for the leather craftsman.

3. Designing And Making Of Leather Items-

This area of enterprise deals with the production of products in leather. It embraces its designing as well as actual productions of the items. This duo-enterprise is a big income generating venture. The leather craftsman may even choose to operate in one of them for each of them promises financial prosperity.

The advancement in technology has opened a new form of designing of products in leather on the computer using art software programs such as CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, Rhino, etc. A leather craftsman who is skilled in the use of any of these programs can make a living from it. Before products such as bags, shoes, slippers, furniture and others are produced, the preliminary designs are made by experts in this area of enterprise. The actual producers of these products also earn a lot of income. There are even specialties in the production of these items such as shoe producers, bag producers, furniture producers, belt producers etc.

4. Trading In Leather Items-

This aspect of leatherwork offers employment to several people whether or not they know much about leatherwork. They trade or offer leather products for sale. Most of the leather traders sell the leather items locally, especially in ‘hot’ or thriving market centers in the country whilst others export the leather products outside the country to earn foreign currencies.

To be effective in this enterprise, the trader in leatherwork has to be versed in costing, pricing, and marketing. He should be able to know which leather products to sell, where to sell them, how to sell them and when to sell them. Armed with this knowledge, he is set on the road to success in this enterprise.

Reproductions With Mold Making and Casting

Mold making and casting is an easy and fun way to make numerous copies of a sculpture or other ready piece.

The process begins with making a mold of the original model. A mold is nothing but a negative of the model that is made by applying a mold making material around the model. This hollow cavity can be made with a variety of materials such as simple clay, wax and gypsum or more elaborate materials such as moulage, polyurethane resin, silicone rubber, latex rubber, thermoset rubber and the like. Alginate is a skin-safe material that is particularly useful for making molds from the human body.

Molds can be made using different techniques ranging from simply pouring or brushing the mold making material all over the original model to more complicated glove, slush and injection mold making methods. Again, if the model is quite complicated with undercuts on all sides, the mold will have to be made in two or more parts which come together to form the complete mold later. You will need to make spues and keys as well. The setting time and demolding time of the material needs to be kept in mind to ensure that the mold comes off properly.

Once a mold is ready, it is time to make a cast. Now a cast is a positive of the model and once finished, will be an exact reproduction of the original model. Again, this opens up a choice of materials such as plaster, gypsum, latex rubber, silicone rubber, polyurethane resin and more. It is even possible to make faux metal, wood and stone casts by using appropriate cold casting powders. In fact, the choice of mold making material often depends on the material you want to finally cast in the mold.

You may even need to add fillers to give the appropriate feel to the cast. Once demolded properly, the cast has to be finished by cleaning, brushing, buffing and polishing. Some chipping also may be needed. Paints and makeup is what provides the final finished look to the cast.

Both mold making and casting require the use of release agents to ensure that the demolding is smooth and easy. They also call for specific tools and equipment for practicing the art.

In sum, making molds and casts is enjoyable and interesting too. However, it requires care and practice to perfect the art before you will be able to churn out accurate reproductions of anything you wish.

Last but not the least; the most beautiful casts will still look incomplete without a name plate specifying the details of the art piece. You would do better to opt for an engraved brass name plate in an elegant low luster finish. The brass name plate will stylishly announce the title of the cast, date and your name as the artist.

Opportunities in Art

Everything changes continuously and the art world is no difference. I develop myself as an artist, my work evolves alongside and also the art world makes progress in a haphazard way.

At the beginning of my career I was an art school graduate visiting galleries with my portfolio. I studied the gallery advertisements and called them for an appointment when I thought my work would fit in. We would meet and when we felt a match we joined forces. This resulted in long-term contacts allowing me to present new work in the said gallery on a regular basis. I did not sell much, my work was considered the abstract note next to their more commercial items, the ones that did sell. I sometimes made a special piece for an art trail in a park of a public garden. At that very beginning I even received some money once for making and exhibiting my work. I was given a scholarship which allowed me a meagre sustenance while developing myself as an artist. I thought I had it made. Sales would start growing at some point, I worked hard and my reputation would grow. People just had to get to know me a little better before they would start buying my work.

Then I had children and disappeared off the face of the earth for a couple of years. The change in my personal life was so enormous that it also changed my work. Apart from that I was in a constant state of exhaustion due to the broken nights, I was just busy all day with my little ones. They were most important at that moment. But when my daughter was two years old I was crying out to exhibit again. I had made some things during those years but smaller and much more intimate than my previous work. And I no longer cared if people would like it or not, making accommodating things had become unbearable.

I woke up in a different world. Galleries had closed, not just one but lots of them. And that was only the beginning. I was no longer a bright young talent but a woman with children. And in this depleted world of art exhibition the galleries now asked me to pay them for exhibiting my work. I felt a strong rebellion against that. (In order to create my work I already have to make considerable investments and the making of an exhibition also costs money. The driving back and forth, materials needed to exhibit the work all cost money.) Artists had been declared Cultural Entrepreneur. Nowadays it’s completely normal to pay for the possibility to exhibit.

This change in art selling locations is still going on at the moment. Online galleries are rising. Artists are putting themselves on the market, literally. Galleries are still collapsing all the time, well-known places can’t manage it anymore. The way art is treated in this country is part of the problem. According to our government art is no longer valued. Therefore many artist escape abroad. To co operations and short-term exhibitions. To fairs. To new places that had never before been considered suitable for exhibitions.

Do you like art? There are numerous artist who would love to transform your living room into an exhibition area for a weekend. Just open up your house to guests and invite your network contacts. Throw a nice party! You will end up with an exclusive exhibition in your own home, helping out an artist and create an experience for your guests they will continue to talk about for a long time.

Art is a great gift.

Hello! I am Saskia de Rooy, I have been a prolific sculptor for more than 20 years. In my articles you will find more about sculpture, materials, how to sell art, why I love art, what it brings me, how sculptures originate. The articles are also placed on LinkedIn, and in Dutch as well.

5 Tips Beginner Wedding Photographers Should Do To Stay Ahead

There is a lot that you can earn and learn when becoming a wedding photographer. However beginner photographers simply keep going the wrong way and thus in the end start giving up when nobody takes up their service. If you are such photographer, then perhaps this article may be able to help you so read on.

Here’s a question for you. Other than the money, what comes close to your mind about photography? Equipment? Softwares? I would say a little of each plays an important role, but what is more important is the idiot behind the camera. So that brings us to our first tip.

1. You matter the most, then your equipment

Many people would say that equipment is the most important in a photographer’s arsenal. That is true but to a certain percentage. The bigger percentage of it is YOU! Why do I say this? In order to efficiently operate or shoot a digital SLR would require a lot of knowledge and adaptability.

Now let’s start with knowledge. If you give your digital SLR to someone who shoots with a handheld camera, he would just return it back to you or he would simple jumble up your settings. So in simple terms you need to build up the knowledge on your equipment in order to maximise it’s functionality. Any photographer would tell you that there is a great difference in using modes like M(fully manual), A(aperture priority), S(shutter priority) and P, which I don’t actually know what it is since I have never used it at all.

Next would be adaptability meaning that you are able to quickly adapt to changing situations. Take for example moving from the outdoors to indoors, then from indoors to the ballroom or hotel room. Each different location requires you to adapt and change the settings on the digital SLR in order to capture the image spot on. If you are unable to adapt quickly to such situations, highly you will have problems in getting the moments of the wedding. With that we move on to tip no. 2.

2. Keep practising

As I would always say to my team,”Be a leader, not a follower”. The reason behind this is when you become a leader in the pack, you can get the first huge chunk of the sales before everyone does. In order to achieve that, you would need to keep practising and finding out new creative ways to shoot in a wedding or during the pre or post wedding session.

Do not waste your precious time going around every month finding out the prices or what other vendors has to offer, instead use your valuable time to practise and create new creations to add on to your portfolio. This will then allow your visitors or loyal page followers to view and thus recommending you to their friends or perhaps engaging you themselves. Now that leads us to no. 3.

3. Promotion and marketing

This plays a very important part for your exposure. No exposure means nobody knows about you and when nobody knows about you, you would end up with no sales. If you are tight on funding, go simple. One of the most powerful tools is social media. Set up an Instagram or Facebook account and start sharing the things you do for photography. You may post about a job that you have just finished, or maybe an oncoming creations that may interest your followers. Just do it, you wouldn’t know people may buy your creativity.

Once you have your ball rolling then set up your own website to gather or redirect more traffic. This way you can gain more exposure thus putting you in the running for Google’s search engines. Start with this two and you won’t go wrong.

4. Equipment

Equipment is the next concern in a photographer’s arsenal. If you are a beginner and on a low budget, start with an equipment that is within your reach. Don’t go robbing a bank simply because they say having a pro level camera is important.

In my opinion, having a pro level digital SLR is a much better option if you have the financial to purchase it however if you are on a low budget then my advise is to get a camera body that has a minimum of 24 mega pixels resolution. As for lens, you may approach your nearest available camera rental centre and rent yourself some good glass. This is to allow you to have a good start in weddings whilst you work on a bigger budget to get yourself a better camera body.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a crop or a full frame, as long as you shoot your images in raw. There is a great difference when shooting in raw compared to shooting in jpeg format.

5. Pricing

Now comes the most important part of your business which would determine the income that you will earn. Do not go crazy like other new photographers trying to get as much deals as possible. Always bear this in mind and understand this saying if you start as a cheap photographer, you will forever be a cheap photographer.

Anybody likes a cheap price or service, then they will expect the world out of you. Have some dignity and price yourself as a professional. Photographers have a pride and their work is a resemblance of their pride. So price yourself reasonably. It doesn’t matter if people don’t take you initially that’s because they are interested in your work and they are playing the mind game to get you to lower your price. Ignore them if they do not take your service.

It is better to get someone who is willing to pay your price and leave everything to you rather to have someone who pays you low and tells you they want this shot, they want that shot and so on.

Hope you find these tips useful to keep you ahead as a wedding photographer. Be patient on getting leads for yourself. Use landscape photography to practise your composition as it is cheap and do not require models.

Take myself as an example. During my free time I would go on outdoor sessions with my model(once you are there, models will come to you.) or on my own to capture landscapes. My latest project on Kickstarter compiles most of my work on landscape photography in Singapore in a calendar set for the year 2017.

On Photographing Bridal Models

“Wedding photography is one of the hardest damn jobs in photography. Period. End of story.” • Zack Arias, Professional Photographer

There’s good reason why wedding photographers are paid huge sums of money to shoot weddings. Apart from the fact, we want to hire the most experienced photographers for a once in a lifetime event there are a series of challenges that conflict with photography. For that reason, bridal modeling is also known to be one of the toughest assignments for models. Yet they are always high in demand and pay well. We look more at the challenges of photographers and the work of a bridal model.

You are most likely going to be indoors often

Most places where weddings and wedding photo shoots happen, such as churches, or indoor spaces aren’t going to be brightly lit. Using the flash is a necessity, however, the standard point and shoot flash that comes with a DSLR still isn’t going to be enough to light the surroundings well enough. That would mean additional flash lighting would have to be hooked up to the camera or surroundings to bounce off the wall. Photographers will thus require a good sensing of the flashes that result from multiple sources and be able to create the most natural effect possible without too much glare or darkness.

As if anxiety wasn’t heavy enough, the dress adds a ton

Wearing a wedding gown, first thing is that there will be many eyes on you, especially if you are on a stage or runway. Anxiety might take its upper hand and moreover, there’s a heavy dress to shoulder around. This means that smiling and being comfortable becomes a harder task than expected. Photographers thus have to understand this and be a leader in the course of activities. They should use comforting words or humor to get the model to relax and joyfully smiling as Bridal photographs ought to be.

Consequentially, Bridal photography is best when candid moments such as romantic looks, or couples are laughing with each other are shot. Achieving this is an additional level of difficulty where the photographer has to facilitate the couples to be at ease with each other to churn out the most natural and appealing photos.

There will be difficult people to deal with

Kids are one example, and many other people will also constantly be in the way as they want to communicate with each other, or in the case of kids who are just too active will pose many difficulties during the photo shoot. The photographer has to be patient and of course be aware of such challenges.

Time crunch

For a wedding or bridal shoot, bulk of the time will go to make up and dress up the model to look perfect. Also, something we can never control is the weather if shooting outdoors. As such a need to be fast and efficient is expected of the photographer. With all the other challenges working within a time limit will be the toughest part yet.

Conclusion

Bridal photography is infinitely rewarding when it’s done right, but there a whole lot of work that goes in the process of achieving the high caliber of photos required. We hope you understand the works of Bridal modeling more clearly now!

New Age Digital Photo Frames

The reason we buy gifts for any one is to make him/her feel special, cared for and loved. Whether the gift is for your spouse or fiancée, parents or grandparents, siblings or cousins and friends or acquaintances, your motive is to please the person. So, if you want to buy something really creative, spectacular and useful then we would suggest you opt for digital photo frames.

These frames display your photographs in digital format the way you see a slide show. The difference is that you do not need any printer, tablet or computer. You can assume it as a digital spin-off of traditional photo frames, which you must have at your home or office.

However, problem with those regular, non-digital frames is that you can only display one picture. So if you want to share ten pictures you will need ten different frames. That’s not a practical thing to do. Today, given our lifestyle and our reliance on digital media so much, we need something that could multitask even if it is a display item. Digital photo frames are thus your best bet. These are specifically designed for showcasing multiple photos of you or whoever you want to gift to. They give a brilliant and novel look wherever you intend to keep them. You can enthrall anyone with the idea of displaying his/her pictures in digital format without using any gadget.

They come handy with Wi-Fi connection, SD card or USB port. These are the sources that display your photographs in digital format. Some also have Bluetooth and printer application through which you can easily send commands to printer and take out hard copy of your favorite pictures.

One of the most interesting features about them is the extensive connectivity these offer. All the time you can connect with Facebook or WhatsApp, in the same way you do on your computer, mobile phone or laptop. You can easily share your pictures with your family and friends, just enter the email address to which you want to share pictures and enjoy amazing, uplifting comments.

Digital photo frames come in varied shapes, sizes, colors and features. The best is the one with rotating display feature. It keeps updating everyone. Timed display is yet another interesting feature where you set time to change the display after a specific interval. It cannot get more customizable than this, isn’t it!
