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!

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

Lights. Camera. Action!

It’s definitely been a while since our last post!  …

We seemed to have missed the entire end of April!  

We hope it’s not too late for a pinch and punch for the First of the Month!

May the Fourth Be With You!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

 Holy Batman!  We’ve been busy!!!!!

Well, don’t you worry… we’re back!   We’ve just recently finished up a great TV commercial — we had the wonderful opportunity of working with some great Directors, Stylists and Videographers.  We’ll post the spot once it airs, but for now… we can show you a little behind the scenes action!

Behind the Scenes…

 

 

After a crazy few weeks of non-stop shooting, we thought we would take a minute and show you some behind-the-scenes photos of what we do.

There is a lot of work and people that go into creating the perfect image.  To name a few, you have lighting, makeup and helpful hands.  You also have clients, computers and of course, the talent!

 

So be brave!  Get out the equipment, and keep shooting!

Texture and Color

Texture and color palette are both important elements of composing a photograph. The combination of texture and color palette can be  what makes an image. For example, this photograph taken for Exquisicat cat litter packaging is successful because of the monochromatic color scheme that contrasts with the bright colors of the box. Also, the complimentary textures of the blanket and the cats fur are aesthetically pleasing.

Things to consider:

  • Color schemes to try:  Complimentary, analogous, triadic, and yes, even monochromatic color schemes have their place!
  • Texture combinations:  Using different textures in combination with one another can create interesting visual patterns and enhance different parts of the image.
  •  Synchronize these two: Using a busy patterned texture  with monochromatic colors works well, whereas these textures with bright and varying colors may be too overwhelming and distracting. Pair these elements with care to create a successful image.

Happy Shooting.

Wacky Wednesday

Sometimes you just need to laugh! Especially on those Wednesdays where it seems you’ve got a lot more of the week left than has already passed. To get you over that hump, Bohm-Marrazzo Photography has some funny pictures to share with you that will surely bring a smile to your face.

Say cheese! Gunner, the yellow lab sticks his tongue out at the camera during a photo shoot for Frontline last year. Sometimes the outtakes of a photoshoot are just as golden as the intended shot. So don’t delete those “in-between” images; take a look there may be something of value in there!

Thanks to Sue Johnson for the ever-charming Gunner.

Happy Wednesday!

Headshots are Important…for Everyone!

Just as headshots can be crucial for people with jobs in modeling, acting, or even business; headshots are just as important for animals seeking work! One of the most basic steps in getting your animal into advertising photo shoots is to get them a great head shot. The better their photograph looks, the more likely they are to get chosen by the art director of the job. A photograph with good lighting that shows the animal’s face and body is a good bet. We photographed our friend Ilson’s (owner of Samba Restaurant in Montclair) Boston Terrier, Bella. The image shows her fit body stature and lovable face.

Who could say no to casting that face?

Photographing Packaging

At Bohm-Marrazzo Photography we work with all kinds of animals, from the typical dogs and cats to snakes, ferrets, you name it! The images on these packages for ferret products were photographed by us for Petsmart. For our own record we bought some of these products and photographed the montage of our work. However, Photographing packages to look great is not as simple as you’d think. Here are some tips for photographing packaging:

  1. Lighting is key. You want to use even, soft lighting to avoid glaring highlights or deep shadows. You want the surface of the package to be easily readable.
  2. Arrange the products in a simple and pleasing way. This grouping of products is arranged together by propping certain packages up on risers to allow the packages to be shown together in an interesting set up that also allows a clear view of the images and words on the packaging.
  3. Dimesion. Show the dimension of the products by angling them and accentuating shape so that the packages do not appear flat.
  4. It’s okay to cheat! Who ever said cheating is not allowed? Use what tricks you have up your sleeve to make the photograph look good. These packages were in a shiny plastic covering with the cardboard sleeve on the inside. The plastic was creating such a harsh glare that we removed the packaging cardboard image from the sleeve and taped it to the outside to cut down on glare. We also used little bits of tape here and there to hold the angles of the packages still. So go ahead, cheat!
