Yesterday’s charm, Tomorrow’s technology, Today’s solution

Steampunk styling meets modern tech in the Cruzer, an e-bike that looks gorgeous on the road and can do 30mph off it

Introducing the Rayvolt Cruzer
If there is a word that properly describes Rayvolt’s wide lineup of e-bikes, it would be swagger. Its design concept seems to invoke the legendary era of early-1900s Indian motorcycles, the 1969 Café Racer and 1970 Beach Cruiser. In contrast to the many highly utilitarian-looking e-bikes on the scene, Rayvolt’s e-bikes are a virtual feast for the eyes.

Not only are these e-bikes pleasing to look at, they are designed around what Rayvolt calls EVIA: an “intelligent virtual assistant” that connects wirelessly to the bike control system and facilitates access to the motor and battery settings, the regenerative braking system, embedded GPS, mapping features, and diagnostics support for motor and battery.

The Rayvolt philosophy is to develop and promote alternative transportation by offering our riders a clean, high tech and stylish way to commute. The Rayvolt Name is born from the sun, “Ray” and the electrical unit, “Volt”, which when integrated enable an electrical “Revolution” or “Rayvolution”.

How to look great in photos

How to look great in photos: from personal snaps to street style
Written by Nicoleta Parascan.

” There’s no point in denying it, we’re currently living in such a visual world that the simple act of taking pictures is no longer just about capturing a specific moment. Today we all want our very best versions to represent us in front of the camera and looking good – great even – in photographs became somewhat of an one and only goal. After all, a photo is what stands between us and the rest of the digital world. …”

” … Aside from a good camera, looking good in photos is mostly influenced by your ability to pose and that’s exactly why you should feel comfortable with yourself and keep an open mind whenever facing the camera lens. Relaxing and posing naturally is a great first step in achieving the best results, the rest is a matter of practice. …”

” … In photography light is almost like magic. It can make or break a photograph, it’s unpredictable yet so unique and it can be used to your advantage. But to find the perfect light, you must permanently seek it outdoors and forget about the indoors for as much as possible. … “

pose003” … Finding a great background weights just as much in the overall aspect your photograph gains, so make sure to choose one that complements both your outfit and your concept for the entire shoot. You can seek a background that effortlessly enriches the colors, prints or patterns of your outfit, or one that fits the specific style you are portraying at the time. Think old, vintage buildings as a way of enhancing the charm of a retro look for example. … “

” … The angle of the camera shouldn’t give you too much trouble, but at the same time it shouldn’t be treated with less importance than any of the aspects already mentioned above. You should constantly be aware of where the camera is in order to make the best out of the shooting experience. A chest height is ideal as it helps avoid deformation, while at the same time prevents you from loosing important inches. …”

pose004Making use of props: blogger Nicole Warne.

” … Some people have turned the use of props into a real art and as long as you can benefit from their presence there’s absolutely nothing wrong in sharing the frame with a statement bag, a nice bouquet of flowers, a set of colorful balloons or a lovely bicycle. It’s all about fitting the right elements in your story and making the most of them. Get creative, have fun and the rest will just follow. …”
