The neuropsychology of food porn - we’re obsessed. We read recipe books in bed, watch TV shows by the score, lovingly flick the pages of glossy food magazines, drool over weekend supplements, jump on the latest food fads and Instagram our breakfast, lunch and dinners en masse. So what’s the science behind our addiction? Belle client @antoniamagor joins a lively panel discussion this evening @sohohouse and questions whether it can ever be good for you. #belleetbien#foodporn#sohohouse#tuesdaythoughts

Product photography seems like a daunting task, especially to someone without a huge budget or no experience behind the lens 📸
Good product photos are so important to have – they draw attention, give a good impression, and represent your business in a positive way 👍🏻
Your photographs need to look professional, and here are some ways you can do so: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀✨Keep it natural. Show your product being used in real life situations.
✨Keep it steady. Use a tripod or stabilizer to avoid blurry photos.
✨Shoot on a white background. Create an “infinity curve” with a piece of paper or white fabric.
✨Avoid hard shadows. Try and use natural light if you can.
✨Show more. Make sure you capture every product you have. (Not in one picture though😉) ✨Don’t over filter. Use simple editing techniques to enhance your photos and to keep it clean.
As a creative, intuitive relationship based business owner, and service provider, you are others focused. It is never about you, it is always about what you can do for your buyer, client, or customer.⠀
You will fight tirelessly for your people and the services that support them.⠀
When you take action, you use your creativity, imagination, conviction and sensitivity not to create advantage, but to create balance. ⠀
You find it easy to make connections with others, and have a talent for warm, sensitive language and people feel supported while in your presence.⠀
You are here to serve.⠀
This can naturally be a problem in sales.⠀
In sales you do need to ask for what you need.⠀
In sales you need to advocate for yourself.⠀
You have to defend your business and be its champion.⠀
You have to take care of your business the way you take care of other people.⠀
Think of your business, as if it was a person you really care about and want to advocate for so you can earn the money your business deserves.
Good Morning Creatives! I would love to hear from you about the top 3 things you love to do. We are all inspired by our passions that keeps us going. For me, I love dancing, planning events and traveling.
Good morning beautiful people. I had a tough morning today. You know those moments you get when you feel like just giving up and throwing in the towel? Yeah me too! .
But you know what. You never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about. Life can be a struggle sometimes. It can throw some serious curve balls, some punches and uppercuts to the face that will knock you on your ass!!
Sometimes in order for you to get the win, or get to your desired situation you have to go through hell. .
You have to remember that the times when its most important to persevere are the times that you will be tested the most. .
The reason most people never achieve their dreams is because they simply give up. .
Winning is easy, but to push through adversity is a true test of character. Which one will you be? .
I leave off with this quote for you on this gloomy rainy Tuesday morning. .
"Remember that most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept trying when there seemed to be no hope at all" - Dale Carnegie
"Remember that guy that gave up? Yeah, neither does anyone else." .
KEEP GOING! .
On days when I'm not sure what to do my favorite practice is to write a question at the top of a blank piece of paper and let the words free flow out.
Today's question: What do you want me to do?
There is a part of you deep down inside that knows what to do...tap into that...
