It’s all in the Details

We had an amazing opportunity to photograph an Engagement Proposal – The soon to Bride and Groom were ecstatic as the sun set over the New York Skyline, and the stars came out to shine.

While everyone was looking up and out, your handy photographers were looking down, thrilled to catch the light hitting our man’s shoes.   It seemed to be the perfect chance to photograph the gorgeous ring, however, this was not our goal.  It was more about showing off the gentlemans style, rather than the details of the diamond.

As we like to say… “It’s all in the details”!

Feline Faces

 We love getting up close and personal with our furry feline friends while we shoot! 

Tell us about your pets! Or better yet, send us photos of them!

Who knows? Maybe, they’ll be the new face of a product or featured on a package!

Exteriors

Photographing architecture, both interior and exterior, can be a tricky task.  But when done properly, can result in a great image and perspective of what you’re trying to capture.

For exteriors, if possible, try to shoot on a day where the weather is to your benefit.  Photographing a children’s kindergarten school in the dead of winter with no sunlight and broken eerie tree branches… well let’s just say that might not be ideal.   A haunted house, on the other hand, will thrive in a spooky setting.

You will also need to learn how to do a basic edit in regards to proportion.  Have you ever tried to take a photo of a building and it comes out all wonky?  Trust me.. it was not built that way.  With a standard lens, you will always have some sort of distortion.

And of course, practice makes perfect.  So get out there! And happy shooting!

Man

Sometimes, we need to look through the lens with a new perspective.  The most interesting shot is often the one that you’d least expect… like this man, and his legs.   For some reason, in the middle of the shoot, we were drawn to the lighting that we were getting off of this pants and boots.  Had this picture been taken with his entire body, we may have missed the subtle glow.

Change up your angle every now and again…. let us know how it goes!

Zoom

 

 

Zooming and  cropping are little edits that  can change the entire composition of your images.

When we zoom, we are able to see details in our images that we may not have noticed to the naked eye.  We see the grains, the pores, the dust.  We see the reflections, the shine and the wrinkles.  It is always very important to look at your entire image at 100% to make sure that you have captured your image in the best possible way that you intended — that 33.7% zoom is simply not good enough and more often than not, quite deceiving.

By cropping, we are able to make our images much stronger.  We get rid of the extras, the excess and the distractions. We allow the audience to see the details that are the most important.  Here, you see a photo of some cute kittens on a bed.  Unless the cats got in the way of your pillow shot… start cropping and keep only the cats.  The pillows will always be pillows, but the eyes and expressions of those kittens will change faster than you can say ‘meow’.
