As I sit here writing this wearing my cupcake pajamas I am a self-proclaimed cupcake fiend. If you have a sweet tooth and you like to take photos, visiting a cupcake store is one of the greatest places to be!
From what used to be a simple treat for kids to take to school for fundraising cake stalls is now a booming industry. Cupcake stores are popping up all over the place. I have visited them in most of the countries I’ve been to but there is one just down the road from where I live in London, Ontario in Canada that not only has great-tasting cupcakes but they also give you free tea or coffee if you’re eating in, when you purchase a $2.89 cupcake. Not a bad deal if you ask me.
On Valentine’s Day this year when we were trying to figure out something we could do during the day because I had to work at night, we decided that heading to the local cupcake place that we hadn’t tried yet was in order. So we went for a walk which as we all know is always a great time to take some Lomos. We were greeted with a long line for people queuing to get their loved ones something sweet but it was worth the wait.
With a whole bunch of flavors to choose from Hey, Cupcake! is a great place to go on a date or even if you just like to take photos (obvious, because why else would you be here?) and you like sweet things, and you’re lucky enough to live in a place with a cupcake bakery, then why not head there to see what you can come up with.
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
