Purchasing a Food Sealer

  • Posted on July 16, 2017 at 2:30 pm

Have you considered purchasing a food sealer for your home but are not quite sure which one is right for you? There are a number of different options available on the market today, and deciding which type is appropriate for your situation can sometimes be a challenge. This article will identify some of the different types of food sealers and hopefully help you decide which one is perfect for your own home.

One of the most popular types on the market today is the personal food sealer which is made to be used in homes for personal use which includes the occasional sealing of meats, vegetables, dried foods, and more. These types of sealers have become more and more popular these days since people are becoming more and more conscientious about what they are doing with the excess food that is produced in their daily lives. The personal models are generally smaller than commercial models and are capable of sealing small amounts of food at one time. They are typically not used every day, but on occasion when there is excess food that can be stored away.

Another type of food sealer that is frequently purchased is the commercial food sealer which is quite a bit large than personal models and is capable of sealing large quantities of food at one time. The commercial models are typically purchased by businesses such as restaurants, meat shops, grocery stores, delis, and any other business where there is a large amount of food inventory turnover. You may also consider purchasing a commercial sealer if you plan on constantly sealing large amounts of food at home.

When it comes to price you are going to pay less for a personal model because they aren’t capable of doing the amount of work that can be done by a commercial model. Also, personal sealers are smaller and more compact so there is less material required to make one when compared to the bigger, more robust commercial models. You can typically expect to pay anywhere from $50 to $150 for a personal food sealer, and $150 and up for a commercial model.

If you’re planning on using your product occasionally in order to seal and store excess food, then perhaps the personal model will be your best solution. Otherwise, if you plan on using your sealer to seal and store large quantities of food items on a consistent basis, or if you have a business that requires the use of a food sealer, then you would want to consider purchasing a commercial food sealer.

Pregnancy Portraits – Getting Professional Maternity Photography

  • Posted on July 16, 2017 at 2:20 pm

Over the past ten years, maternity photography has become very popular. The anticipated birth of each child into the family is being celebrated with a professional photography session to capture the time in the family’s life. When considering getting pregnancy portraits done, there are some key elements to think about, including when to have the maternity session, who should be in it, and what to wear.

The timing of the maternity session is very important. You do not want to do the session too early and not have an impressive belly, but you do not want to wait so late so that the woman is swollen in the feet and ankles and miserable. Given these parameters, 32 to 36 weeks is a good, happy medium that usually works well. Of course if the woman is having multiples, then adjust the time accordingly.

Another consideration is who will be in the photos? Obviously the pregnant woman will be in them, but who else should be in them? One approach is to include the family members that will be the most significant part of the baby’s life – which usually includes both parents and any siblings. A different approach would be to do the project as a study of just the woman and her pregnancy – which is then sometimes given as a gift to her partner as a surprise.

Where should the maternity session be done? Most maternity sessions involve showing a good deal of skin, so the woman should consider whether she would be comfortable doing that in public space like the beach or a meadow or a more edgey urban city look, or whether she would prefer the privacy of a photography studio or home session.

The desired style of the resulting images should also be carefully considered. Should they be more moody and shadowy, or light and airy, more traditional, or sexy, or fun and funky? Figuring out the style or styles of the pregnancy portraits can be done by looking on the internet for examples of other maternity photography that you like.

After having figured out the location and the styles, figuring out what to wear should be a bit easier now. For maternity sessions, the choice of what to wear includes; wearing clothes with the belly showing, doing semi-nudes with clothing, bathing suits or lingerie, doing semi-nudes with fabrics and sheers, or full nude maternity photography.

After having decided to do the session, another thing to think about is where to put the resulting prints from the session. If they are family portraits that are clothed, they may be able to hang anywhere in the house. If they are more black&white nude pregnancy portraits it may be better to hang these in the bedroom. Another great choice is to consider a fine art maternity album for the images.

After having done the professional maternity session, adding an artistic newborn photography session would be an excellent idea. Framed body parts from the maternity session including close ups of hands and bellies can be combined into a modern wall collage with close-ups of baby feet, hands and face. Creating an album from the pregnancy portraits and newborn portraits is another wonderful way to celebrate the new life in your family.

The Difference Between Color And Black And White Photography

  • Posted on July 16, 2017 at 12:20 pm

If you’ve always wondered about the differences between color and black & white photography, then this article is for you. By the end you’ll have a better understanding of the two formats and will informed to make the right decision as a photographer.

There’s been a vast improvement in the quality of color pictures, however sometimes photographers chose to use black and white shots. This may be because of the style or the design of the picture. The choice of black and white shots removes any distractions such as dominant shades that are not part of the image’s subject.

With the subtraction of color other objects in the picture may have increased importance, so this is why photographers tend to do it. Red objects in a photograph are very dominant as the eye is automatically attracted to them. By removing this it can simplify the image, shapes and lines may become more obvious and lead people to focus on other things.

Black and white pictures sometimes feel like they have a timeless quality, unlike when painting a picture. Instead, the photographer has less control over the color, brightness and tone of a subject they are taking a picture of. For artistic reasons one may prefer to eliminate this problem by making it colorless.

A black and white news story picture can still portray the message it is sending, while additionally saving the publication money when it comes to printing. However, advertising differs slightly by using color to draw attention to the sale of products.

For reasons above, photographers may opt to shoot in raw (black and white) on their camera. However, others may prefer to shoot in color to convert their shots to black and white.

The debate between black and white and color is ongoing and down to personal preference. It seems it entirely depends on the nature of the picture and the photographer.

So there you have it, everything you’ve always wanted to know about the differences between color and black & white photography.

What is the Difference Between a Credit Union and a Bank

  • Posted on July 16, 2017 at 12:13 pm

Banks and credit unions seem very similar to most people. They both offer deposit accounts and various types of credit. They have many of the same services, telephone banking, online banking and ATMs; but there are some major differences between the two. If youre wondering where to turn for your next personal loan or arent sure where to open a savings account consider the following differences between a credit union and a bank.

Credit Unions

A Credit Union is a member-owned not-for-profit financial cooperative governed by a Board of Directors elected by the credit unions members. The members of a credit union usually have something in common, such as living in the same geographical region or belonging to the same organization.

Credit Unions offer everything from checking and savings accounts to small business loans, car loans, mortgages, personal loans, and more. A credit unions main focus, however, is on savings and it will usually offer higher interest on savings products than a bank. A credit unions not-for-profit status means that any income it earns is given back to its members, usually via lower interest rates and fees.


A bank is a stockholder-owned financial institution. Its main goal is to make its investors money and it does so by investing its customers money or lending it to other customers. When you make a deposit at the bank you are essentially loaning money to it. The bank pays you back in interest for that loan but the rates vary depending on the bank (consider that 0.05% youre now making on a savings account you opened several years ago when interest rates were much higher).

Banks also make their money in fees (ATM fees, overdraft fees, late payment fees, etc.). Banks carry the same products as credit unions, deposit accounts, IRAs, credit cards, and so on, but unlike a credit union, a banks products are FDIC insured. (Credit unions are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) so funds are still guaranteed should the credit union fail).

While it may seem that banks and credit unions both offer the same products and the only difference is in who owns them, credit unions lead the way when it comes to service. Surveys of bank customers and credit union members consistently show a higher rate of satisfaction among credit union members. And while banks are often able to provide more convenience, in that they typically offer more branch locations, customer satisfaction is not as high.
