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

Finishing in 7th —

This happy blogger once wanted to be a race car driver — what did you want to be when you were a kid? Are you doing that now?

“In 1986, Marlboro increased its auto racing involvement,
sponsoring its first Indy Car entry . The Marlboro #20 March 86C,
prepared by Patrick Racing, was driven by two-time Formula One
World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi . Marlboro was Fittipaldi’s
sponsor in 1974 when he won his second Formula One World Title
with the Marlboro McLaren Team . Fittipaldi won his first Indy
Car race for Marlboro at Elkhart Lake .” –http://legacy.library.ucsf.edu/documentStore/w/o/o/woo48c00/Swoo48c00.pdf

Ektachromes

We’ve been doing some spring cleaning! ¬†We opened our drawers, filing cabinets and trunks and started going through some old film, slides and negatives from back in the day when there were no digital cameras, and definitely no photoshop!

It also made color reversal film more practical in larger formats, and the¬†Kodachrome¬†Professional film in sheet sizes was later discontinued. ¬† –Wikipedia

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!

PB&J

Alright everyone… it’s time to get real. ¬†Peanut Butter and Jam sandies (otherwise known as PB&J) are maybe one of the worlds better inventions. ¬†From its beginning, it was a match made in Heaven. ¬† ¬†This magical union supposedly originated in the USA and according to Wikipedia, “A 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 2,500 of these sandwiches before graduating from high school.” ¬†I believe I am one of those stats they are talking about.

You can make a PB&J without using real peanut butter – this we have learned from all of our allergy friends out there — cashew butter, almond butter or even no-nut peabutter – can still do the trick.

Now, we happened to stumble on the greatest Buzzfeed¬†post — The most delicious pull we got from their take on PB&J’s came in the form of French Toast —- YUMMMMM!

Once again… YUM. ¬†

If you’ll all excuse me… I’m going to the kitchen.

Happy Thursday!

Nobody ever really thinks about Thursday. ¬†The ‘real’ middle child of the week. ¬†Many would think that Wednesday has it the worst, but they are wrong. ¬†Although it gets misspelled every now and again, good old Wednesday is the peak of many a week. ¬†We know that we’ve made it through the dreary Mondays and the hopeful Tuesdays. We can look forward to the ever so casual Thursday and the excitement of Friday. ¬† ¬†But Thursday on its own, well, it seldom gets the credit it deserves.

We like Thursdays because of its hype for the weekend. We like Thursdays for the fact that its different – we use an ‘R’ to abbreviate it. ¬†It’s homey, its calming, its pub night, its Thursday.

So, Happy Thursday!, everyone!  Get out there and celebrate!

Show Your Stripes!

Creating an artistic illusion with body paint

DID YOU KNOW that when zebras stay close as a group, their wavy stripes blend together to protect any single zebra from being noticed by dangerous prey? Talk about the power of natural instinct. How will you use your stripes today?

See below for behind the scenes on this awesome body painting photo shoot for LifeStyles!

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!
