Cuisine around the world 

When it comes to capturing images and videos of food, there are a few things to keep in mind to appeal to customers. First and foremost, showcasing diverse cuisines from around the world is key. Whether it's a classic dish from a certain region or a fusion creation, customers want to see variety. Secondly, presentation is everything. Beautifully prepared meals on tabletops or in studio environments can make all the difference. Including professional chefs and home cooks preparing local dishes can also add authenticity to the content. Food is often associated with bringing people together, so including images and videos of families and friends dining on regional food is a great way to connect with customers. Lastly, it's important to avoid overt references to nationality or using flags and items that wouldn't normally appear on a dining table. By keeping these tips in mind, you can create engaging and authentic content that will resonate with customers.

Earth day

With Earth Day fast approaching, it's important to capture images and videos that showcase positive efforts to help the environment. Users are eager to see content that highlights sustainability and eco-friendliness across the globe. Creators can provide fresh takes on recycling by capturing scenes of people recycling at home and in public. Composting and using reusable bags are also great subjects to focus on. Going solar is another way to promote environmentalism, so including images and videos of solar panels being installed on residential homes can help connect with viewers. In addition, community gardens being planted, volunteers picking up trash, and boaters cleaning the ocean are all activities that can inspire and motivate viewers to take action. By showcasing a range of positive efforts to help the environment, creators can contribute to a global conversation about sustainability and inspire viewers to take action in their own communities.



At the office 

With the return of office parties, users are eager to see fresh and varied celebrations taking place in professional environments. A great way to capture these moments is by showcasing small groups of coworkers enjoying drinks at the office mini bar. It's important to note that models featured in these scenes should be over the age of 25 if alcohol is being consumed. Additionally, large company-wide events or holiday parties, such as Christmas or New Year's celebrations, can be great subjects to capture in new scenes. However, it's important to keep the scenes professional and realistic, avoiding over-the-top antics. Candid shots of coworkers having fun and socializing can be a great way to showcase the office party atmosphere while maintaining a level of professionalism.
