Why you should Never Stop Creating

Being a woman in today’s world is much easier than it was a few decades ago, but it’s still not perfect. You are expected to do certain things in certain ways, and act a certain way, and dress a certain way. You have to compete with people who are against you, who tell you that you can’t make it, who say that there is a man who can do better.

But you should never stop creating.

Whether you are a photographer, a video maker, a film director, or an artist, your work speaks volumes. It gives you a voice to make yourself heard in the world. It gives you a chance to show people your perspective, your ideas, your concepts, your skills. It is who you are, it is who you need to be. So if you are a working woman, if you love creating and sharing art, you should never stop making it.

Your art will not only give you a platform to speak up, it will also help you in practical matters such as making money. You need to work hard, you need to stay constant in your work, you need to promote yourself, and you need to let people know that what you are doing is worth their time. So make art, make movies, run a YouTube channel, create an Instagram profile, sell your work through your website. It’ll give you the recognition you deserve while also becoming your career.

So no matter what you do. Don’t stop creating.

 

How to Use Instagram to Promote Yourself

We previously talked about how women can use social media to promote their art and craft. This is a great way to expand your audience and putting your work in front of real people that might have an interest in buying your product. A very strong platform to do this is Instagram. People have made a massive following for themselves through Instagram, and you can do it too.

Be Sure to Post at the Right Time

It is very important that you are aware of what the right time is to post your photos on Instagram. The ‘right time’ is one in which the most number of people you are interested in targeting with your posts will be checking their feeds. Instagram is a very popular platform, and people from all over the world are posting things every second, so if you don’t share your art at the right time it might get lost under the heap.

Use Hashtags

Hashtags help categorize your photos, making them easier to find. This means that people who don’t follow you can also see your photo if they are interested in a specific hashtag. Try to use only relevant hashtags so people don’t think of your photos as spam. You can also have a look at some of the most popular hashtags to boost your photos’ visibility.

Share Behind the Scenes Stuff

To create a deeper connection with your audience, it can be helpful to share some photos of the process through which you create your work. Share some candid photos of yourself while working. This will help people connect your work to an actual human being, elevating its importance.

Try to be Consistent

It’s important for someone who has stumbled upon your work opened your profile to be greeted by a rather consistent-looking gallery of photos. If you post photos that each differ in their style, your overall profile will start to seem cluttered and unfocused.

Use your Bio

One thing that many people don’t pay attention to is their Instagram profile bio. Make sure that the bio includes something that grabs people’s attention while also being brief. Use links to other websites or portfolios that you have of your work so you can drive traffic to places where your work can be found for sale.

Try New Things

It’s always good to stand out from the crowd when it comes to making art. If you are a photographer, try something unique like creating HDRs with a good HDR editor or paint with light. If you are an artist, create things that are different from the norm. Try to impart something unique in your work, and your chances of making it in the online world will increase rapidly.

 

Instagram is not only a place to share random photos anymore. It has turned into a great e-commerce website that people are using to promote themselves on a regular basis. If you are an artist, a photographer, or anyone who does creative work and needs exposure, don’t underestimate the power of this excellent platform.

 

A Great Way to make it as a Female Artist

Not all women in today’s world have the luxury of going out and exhibit their art, whether it is photography, painting, or filmmaking. That does not mean that these women can’t showcase their work in front of the world. With the power of the internet, anything is possible.

Social Media is Free Marketing

The best and easiest way to put your work in front of the world is to utilize social media platforms. You can make a Facebook page and upload your creations there. You can tweet about your latest projects. You can take pictures of your work and upload them on Instagram. There are many ways to make sure that your work reaches the eyes of potentially millions of people.

Online Galleries are Easy to Use

If you want to take your online presence up a notch and use it to make money, consider putting up your work on premium galleries and websites where you can actually sell it. Some of these sites are completely free to use where you just have to pay a small percentage of your sales to the website. You can upload as much or as little as you want on these platforms. However, making sales is not very easy. You’ll have to be patient, upload consistently, and market your work through other websites and your social media handles rigorously. But as slow as this process may be, once it starts paying off it’ll be worth it.

So if you are a woman who can’t easily market your art in the physical world, you can always rely on the power of the internet to make your name.

Why Wonder Woman is so Important

Who doesn’t love a good superhero movie? From blood pumping action and crazy stunts to a heartwarming look at the hero’s life, superhero movies have it all. But recently, only one superhero movie seems to be making headlines everywhere – DC’s long awaited Wonder Woman.

The Start of Something New

For the longest time, superhero movies have been dominated by male leads. Sure, female actors have found some prominent roles in many movies, like Black Widow in Avengers, Catwoman in Batman, and Jean Grey in XMen, but none of these movies have focused solely on a female superhero. Wonder Woman is so important because it does just that; it shows a strong, independent woman fighting basically alone to save to human world. And that is what was needed for so long in Hollywood for gender equality.

Many, Many Hero Moments

If this was just another male superhero movie, the number of shots where the lead is shown kicking some enemy behind in slow-mo would have been simply too much. But in Wonder Woman, the more hero shots there are the better. We have needed this kind of spotlight on a female superhero for a long time, and every time Wonder Woman is shown in full action, somewhere around the world women are inspired.

Exceeding Expectations

It is because of all these reasons that Wonder Woman shattered the Box Office with its business of $103 million on the opening weekend. People flocked to their local cinemas to watch the movie, men and women alike. Women across the globe reacted positively to the movie, taking to Twitter to express the empowerment they felt coming out of the theatres.

We need more movies like Wonder Woman, not because there is any shortage of superhero movies or even female superheroes, but because it is vital for us to see strong women taking on the world if we are to promote gender equality.

Ladies! Start Sharing Everything You Make

A large number of women around the world choose to stay at home, for a number of reasons. Some simply prefer to stay home while others do not have the liberty to go out and work in a professional environment. But these women do not have to just stay home and not do much productive work. There are many who choose to indulge in various kinds of crafts and arts while home, but the one thing I feel women don’t do enough is share what they do with the world.

First Off – Find your Niche

Before anything else, as a stay at home mom you should find something you love doing. There are many different kinds of jobs you can do from home including making homemade crafts, designing t-shirts, or even making instructional videos.

 

Now – Document Everything

After you have found your niche and started making products, it’s time for you to start taking pictures of your work and share them on social media. Let’s have a look at how you can do that in some easy steps:

• For Indoor Shots:

If your products are of the sort that should be photographed indoors, like t-shirts, paintings, or something like a homemade photo frame, you can easily get the job done with modest equipment. You don’t need to have a very expensive camera or lots of lights to take some great looking photos.

Try to use as much natural light as you can if you don’t have indoor lighting equipment. You can also create a DIY lighting setup to brighten up your products. Use a white backdrop for your artwork or product so that the actual subject of your photo shines rather than getting overpowered by the backdrop.

• For Outdoor Shots:

To add some more oomph to your products, you can also take them outside and place them in a natural environment. If you make sculptures or something else that is 3D, using natural backdrops can add a very interesting and rustic touch to them.


A great trick to get great looking outdoor shots is to take HDR images. Creating HDR photos is simpler than it may sound. All you need to do is set your camera at different exposures for each photo of the same subject and then later merge them together in an HDR photo editor.

And Last – Just Share!

Once you have started taking pictures of your craft, it’s time to harness the power of social media. Social platforms like Facebook and Instagram put your work potentially in front of millions of people. Use these sites and just start sharing with your friends, families, and eventually with the general public. Make your page online and promote it so that it reaches more people. Follow these tips, and you won’t have to worry about sitting at home and not doing anything productive every again.

Why Are Movies Made By Females Important You Ask?

While it is true that women are making advances in the world every day, the fact that they are still considered second to men in certain walks of life is also very true. Filmmaking is one of these fields. It is not easy being a female director even today, as there just aren’t a lot of opportunities that are handed out to women. However, there are many reasons why this behavior needs to change fast, and here are a few of them:

1. It’s Just A Stark Difference in Numbers

The fact that women occupy just 7% of the space in the world of filmmaking, as far as 250 of the most grossing films are considered, should be enough to create some more opportunities for female movie directors to come forward. This doesn’t mean that male directors and filmmakers should be given any less value, but with such a huge difference in the numbers, it’s clear that the lack of female voices in the movie world has nothing to do with lack of talent.

2. It’s a Different Point of View

Having a female crew and cast in a movie is bound to have a completely different impact on the story and characters than if a movie were to be directed by men. It’s just natural that women have a different perspective on things. And I don’t mean that we put a female lead in the movie. What I mean is that everything about the movie, including behind the scenes stuff, be given in the hands of women for a fresh perspective on the subject matter.

3. Women Invite More Women

Stats show that if a woman is directing a movie, there is a significant increase in the number of women that have the opportunity to work in it. This leads to the creation of more jobs for women, and allows them to come forward in the cut-throat world of filmmaking. All of this then leads to the creation of movies that invite larger numbers of women to the cinemas, providing content that they can relate to in a fresh new way.

The world of filmmaking is very tough to make a place for yourself, especially if you are a woman. But you should stand up for yourself, be confident in who you are, and stick together with one another to grab the opportunity when it comes in front of you. The world needs to see the female perspective more clearly, and all of you are going to help make that happen.

Start Supporting Female Photographers Today!

Much of the art world, as many people from the field will tell you, is dominated by men. That’s not to say that there are no recognized female artists, but the fact is that most of the ‘greats’ in the world of art are men. This includes all genres of art from painting to photography. While there are some amazing female photographers in the world, people need to start understanding why it’s so important to support women photographers, filmmakers, and artists in general.

To Battle the Idea of Artistic Inferiority

Like I mentioned before, women are often thought of as inferior in the world of art. The reason for this is not that women haven’t been making great art for centuries but the mere fact that gender roles, power, and access to resources have shaped our cultures in a way that hasn’t always thought of women as equals. This has nothing to do with artistic ability or disability. It is a progressive cultural issue that people need to battle today.

To Minimize the Idea of Sexism in Art

Other than the fact that women artists and photographers haven’t been promoted enough historically, another issue is that art collectors and galleries have not been a supporter of female art for a long time. Times are changing now for sure, but we still need the public to show their interest and support for female artists by investing their time and money in their hart work.

To Support their Perspective

Women, by nature, see things differently than men do. They view the world in their own way, and this is depicted in the work they do. Female photographers and filmmakers bond with their subjects in a more personal way when they take on photojournalism. They are more sensitive to multiple sides of the same story. It is very important to hire female photographers for this very purpose; to show them that their perspective matters and to give them the confidence that they are on par with their male counterparts.

Whether we talk about photography, filmmaking, or art in general, it is no secret that women have been marginalized for a very, very long time. It’s time that we start supporting female photographers and artists by providing them with the platforms and opportunities they need to show the world that they are no less than men in their creative fields.

 

Awareness for all ages with easy understanding

The dark spreads on, the sound creates a vibration in our body, a peck of light comes from a box projects a big picture on screen. Yes that’s what movies look like.

A movie is quite interesting because it brings all information under one title.

Moving pictures

The moving pictures are framed for 25 in a second which causes an image to look like moving one. This is how movies are created for each frame. Movies are good ways to spend leisure time. The categories of movies for women are mentioned below

Message from movie

Choose movies that deliver a good message. Movies are mostly taken to make the end people deliver the message in a simple way. Let us take for example the pursuit of happiness explains how a normal man gets settled down by overcoming all his setbacks in life.

Along with message movies can involve lot of fun and animation too. Even the actors of movies can become role model for many common people. A movie can be created with lot of team effort. Whenever a good movie is released on screen then that is because of the team effort offered by that team. Watching movies is more than fun because it takes you to various places all over the world and even space that you cannot afford to go.
