How Do You Make A Great First Impression?

Both actors and models alike need a great headshot. It is the first thing any casting director will see from the agency. It is the piece of you that is left as a reminder after an interview or audition. It is your foot in the door. And it needs to be strong. Your headshot image should reflect the mental image you want to leave. Find a great photographer, and not necessarily the cheapest. This also doesn’t mean that a $5,000 photo shoot for one image is the best quality. Be reasonable, and do your homework. Make the best first impression you can -you only get one. _MG_7326

aaaand….ACTION!

 

 

We’ve been keeping ourselves busy these last few weeks!

In between photographing Christmas cards in June and Amusement Parks in September for next summer season, we took another step into the wonderful world of videography.  Here, we are on set for a TV commercial to be aired nationwide.

There is a great deal of skilled people and a highly creative set of minds that go into advertising.   On any given shoot, you have the Director, Videographer, Client, Copywriter, Sound Guy, Grip, Talent, Hair and Wardrobe Stylists, Set Stylists, Extra Hands… and that’s just to name a few.
20130917_124812BOGWhy is our actress standing in front of a giant green screen?  It is for movie magic in the making.  With a green screen, you are able to put your subject in whatever environment you choose.  She could be standing on a beach in Jamaica, or in the middle of the Kentucky Derby!

 

We will keep you posted on more of our adventures… in the meantime.. stay creative!

Use Your Hands to Make Money

070607Fc2_143

Hand Modeling

Did you ever wonder who spreads I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter on that fresh blueberry muffin? Or who swipes the newest iPad to advertise its brilliant features? In other words, modeling isn’t just for the face. There are many models who earn a good living just using their hands to advertise products, both in print and film.

At Bohm-Marrazzo Photography, we’ve photographed many national consumer ads that needed a “hand” to humanize the product. But, this photograph was a comp shot for an aspiring hand model, not for the watch. This man is hoping that he gets the next iPad ad.

In order to be a hand model, you have to have a good looking hand. Then, it’s necessary to keep that good looking hand smooth and unblemished with clean nails that are evenly shaped. A little different for the women – fashion models have different looking hands than commercial models. A hand that’s advertising a toilet bowl cleaner is not going to have the same look as a hand that’s advertising a $50,000 diamond ring.

Hand models must be able to move gracefully and keep a relaxed pose, no matter how long it takes to get the shot… and sometimes that means hours! Scars? Skin discolorations? Bitten nails? Maybe think about a different career. Clearly, being a parts model – or what we call in advertising photography “anatomical modeling” – is not as easy as it looks!

Another tip…Protection! Remember that funny episode in Seinfeld when George Costanza’s hands get noticed for being soft and milky white? He starts wearing oven mits to preserve his possible hand modeling career and finds out it’s no easy task to keep your hands looking perfect.

But hey, no matter what your special talent may be, go for it – it’s always good to aim for the upper hand.

And if you need a comp card for your hands, or anything else, contact www.marrazzomorgan.com.

Food can be art too!

This photo was taken for the North Jersey chapter of Slow Food USA, a movement that encourages consumers to buy locally grown food. Depicting the importance of staying fresh, the plates here are made from palm leaves– how fitting? Needless to say, this photo shoot was both intriguing and delicious for everyone on set!

Here’s a recipe for Italian Dumplings so you can try this dish yourself!

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
6 tablespoons margarine
3 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
2 eggs, beaten
3 quarts water
3 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules

Directions: 

1 In a skillet, saute onion in butter till tender.
2 Add spinach, cook and stir over medium heat until liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

4 Transfer to a large bowl.
5 Add 3/4 cup of flour, Parmesan cheese and garlic salt.
6 Cool for 5 minutes.
7 Stir in eggs; mix well.
8 Place remaining flour in a bowl.
9 Drop batter by tabelspoonfuls into flour; roll gently to coat and shape each into an oval.
10 In a large saucepan; bring water and bouillion to a boil-reduce heat.
11 Add a third of the dumplings at a time, simmer, uncovered for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean.
