Still Life Stills Features: Festive FlavoursEveryone has their own idea of what is festive to them, I was going to feature just one flavour but there are so many i could not decide. What counts as festive varies greatly depending on family traditions, culture, taste and smell. This is what is festive to me. Chestnuts, peppermint, chocolate, orange, cranberry, cinnamon, mince pies, rum, brussel sprouts, stuffing, cheese and crackers, pickled onions, cheesecake and pigs wrapped in blankets. All these foods are a combination of my families tastes over the years rubbing off on me. What is festive for you?
Still Life Stills Features: JamThis week we feature jam and marmalade. Jam is also known as jelly in some places and is a very versatile thing. Not only is it good for toast but I find great for baking for cakes, cookies, cupcakes and cheesecakes,Enjoy!Have a suggestion for future still life photography features?

Introduction to Cross StitchingCross StitchingCross stitch is one of a number of embroidery stitches, but usually the one most people are familiar with. Whether it was in a school art class or just randomly picking up a cross stitch kit as a kid, a lot of us have tried it at some point. Lets delve into this popular stitch a little bit.What is a cross stitch?As the name suggests, is is simply a cross, or an 'X' stitched with thread onto canvas. Typically, it's used to make a picture or a pattern. The stitch will form a complete square, and in this regard it is quite similar to pixel art. Through the placement of individual stitches adjacent to one another, an overall image will eventually appear. It's an incredibly simple stitch, but can take some time to master. Like many crafts, it can be difficult to notice the

Food Photography - back to basicsFood is a necessity for daily life and good health (the right kinds anyway), but food is also fast becoming something of an Art as well as many turn to their cameras once a mammoth baking session is over and capture the delightful dishes in attractive and alluring ways. Since the beginnings of Still Life Photography, food has been a subject and whilst the topic has remained the same - methods, equipment and ease have changed in varying degrees across the years. Food Photography is still a genre that is vastly overlooked and majorly underrated in the art world.It all began with Still Life Paintings back in the 17th Century. They were as far from commercial as a style could get and certainly weren't created with selling in mind. However the skill and main aspects that realism painters took back in the 17th Century are kept close to the hearts of Food Photographers today as they grip onto Realism, effects of light, composition and arrangement. Props have always been an important part of

Disability Awareness Day :: Braille Art FeatureToday is Disability Awareness Day. It offers us a chance to promote awareness and understanding, as well as a moment to reflect on the lives of individuals living with a disability, and what those of us blessed with able bodies can do to assist.There are a number of articles coming to you from CVs and members alike aiming to spread awareness on the matter, so I won't double up on their efforts. But I want to take a moment to reiterate that not all disabilities are visible. Lately I've heard a lot of stories from people using disabled parking being abused by passers by, either verbally or via a note left on their dash, for not 'looking' disabled. It's a common theme. People will tend to judge the heath of another by how they look, but it is worth remembering that not all sick people look sick. The vast majority of disabilities are those you cannot see by looking at a person.Some people live with chronic pain. Ot
