Parachutes

In June,  we had the wonderful opportunity to shoot a local TV commercial for St. Peter’s University Hospital.

St. Peter’s has a large pediatric program and delivers as many as 6,100 babies each year! This commercial is meant to highlight their many advanced departments in baby and child care.

It was baby-mania for the days leading up to this shoot – including casting for all of the little ones and going into full production mode!

Here is one of the spots that St. Peter’s has posted on their website, and has been showing on local television:

 

Thanks to all the babies and their parents who participated. The third and final  spot will hopefully be coming out soon. Stay tuned!!

Bundles of Joy

Back in June, we shot a local TV commercial for St. Peter’s University Hospital. St. Peter’s has a large pediatric program and delivers as many as 6,100 babies each year! This commercial is meant to highlight their many advanced departments in baby and child care. It was a lot of fun shooting this commercial and casting all the babies for it. Here is one of the spots that St. Peter’s has posted on their website:

Thanks to all the babies and their parents who participated. The other spots will hopefully be coming out soon. Stay tuned!!

Photographing Kids and Animals

W. C. Fields once said “Never work with kids or animals.” Here at Bohm-Marrazzo Photography, we disagree. We work with children and animals on a regular basis because we enjoy it! Don’t be fooled, working with kids and animals is not easy. As fun and warm-hearted people, it’s a natural ability for Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo to be so well-versed in animal training and child wrangling.The combination of photographic expertise and psychology allows for the capture of perfect expressions and poses on those two or four-legged subjects.

Here are some basic tips for photographing, the sometimes hard to manage subjects of animals and children:

  • Patience is a virtue. As obvious as this may sound, it can be easy to lose patience when trying to get a subject who doesn’t understand you to do what you want.
  • Reward them! When using food or toys to get the attention of an animal or kid, allow them to get a little taste or get their hands (or paws) on that toy for a moment to maintain their interest.
  • Mi studio es su casa. Make them feel at home. Creating a comfortable environment where you’re shooting helps to take some stress of the subject.
  • Minimize distractions. Only one person should be trying to get the attention of the subject. When multiple people are calling or waving toys and treats, the animal or kid doesn’t know who to look at creating confusion.
  • Give them (and yourself) a break. If things aren’t going so smoothly and your subject is getting antsy, let them take a few minutes to relax off set.

Happy Shooting!

Behind the Scenes

Our team at Bohm-Marrazzo had a wonderful time shooting a local baby TV commercial last week. As you can see it’s all smiles and laughter for the little ones. This behind the scenes photo turned out to be a great image. Sometimes what’s going on around the main event is worth taking the time to capture, too.

So remember to let your inner child come out and have some fun. No one ever really grows up anyway, right?

BABY BONANZA

This week has literally been BABY MANIA!

We are shooting a NJ local cable TV commercial – featuring BABIES!

For the past few days, and for the rest of the week, we have not only been looking at photos of these pudgy little monsters but also meeting them in the studio to take some updated photos and meet them in person..

All of the gooby smiles and baby soft skin make it worth the countless diaper changes in our waiting room!

Some helpful hints to help deal with a room full of babies on shoot day?

1.  Bubbles! Who doesn’t love them – They calm the nervous parent and amuse the little bums!

2. Peek-a-boo!  Wait, where did you just come from!?!

3. Laughing ! These babies need to know that they aren’t the doctors office getting a shot – so have fun! Be silly! Make ridiculous faces! Make some noises! Be a kid again!

Photos soon to follow

I think it’s time we all take a nap! 🙂
