Dear Summer…

Dear Summer,

We know it’s getting late in the year, but please don’t leave.   We still have so many things we want to do with you before you go!  Don’t get us wrong, we love your cousins Fall & Winter, but they just aren’t the same!

 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!

Mandy

From the new series, “We Found Them In A Box” …

Photo #8:  Mandy, the Schipperke.

Top 3 Reasons why we love this photo:

1.  The matching hairstyles on the little girl and Mandy are the greatest!

2. Who doesn’t have a childhood photo in a sailor costume?

3. How incredibly tough, yet gorgeous they both look.

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

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.

On Pointe

The New Jersey Ballet

Toes pointedTummy engaged. Back straight. Shoulders relaxedBottom tuckedLong neck…And this is why dancing is a fine art form.

The list of details to remember in ballet can go on and on, but it’s the way these details come together that really makes the magic happen. No matter what you’re doing, attention to detail must not be ignored. In photography, elements like texture, angle, depth of field, lighting, and pattern all join in to capture the perfect shot. Let’s take this image, for example. If you want to emphasize the shape of the ballerina’s feet, you might take an angle that shows the arch of her foot by the straight line of the stage floor. That way, you can wow your audience just as much as The NJ Ballet.

It’s all about what you’re trying to say

So, stay On Pointe!
