First Place: Photography Campaign “London Olympic Medalists”
Shot for Splash News, our furry friends helped us out to create this awesome campaign. Riplee The Boxer, Luca The Swimmer, and our three feline finalists Pippi, Riplee, and Bonnie.
First Place: Lifestyle and People “Suncast Ad”
Getting messy with this young boy and his dog helped us capture the essence of the outdoors for the Bailey Agency. What a great way to spend our Monday!
Second Place: Still Life/Miscellaneous “Let Me Try”
The minute we pulled out these bubbles, this adorable little girl lit up the room with laughs. We had such a fun day working with her to get this gorgeous shot!
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’.
Happy Zooming! Happy Cropping!
We know, we know…. The Pipster again!?! But hey!. our little one just became a little lady – We celebrated the Pips first birthday with her best friends, Luca, Whoopee and Sealee – two Border Collies and a PyrShep!
After her favorite treats and a dance party (relax, photos to follow), our champion Somali decided to find herself a cozy spot on the floor and laze for the rest of the day.
Mondays are one of those days where you just don’t want to get out of bed in the morning…the bed is still so warm and it’s a little chilly outside. Then your alarm goes off, and you are not a happy camper. Somali cat, Pippi knows just how you feel today! Sometimes hitting snooze for an extra few minutes is entirely necessary. Brew some fresh coffee (extra strong) to help you get going.

As you may remember, our Olympic cats pridefully celebrate their victories on the podium. Our photograph was featured on page 64 of the August 27th issue of InTouch Magazine! Just as the cats are super excited, so are we!
“The caption reads: “Inspired by Olympian Gabby Douglas, rescue cat Riplee, 2, raises his arms to celebrate his win over Pippi and Bonnie. The feline friends owned and photographed by Linda Bohm of Montclair, N.J., re-created this gymnastics ceremony by proudly posing in front of the famous rings.“
(**Should read photographed by Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo of Bohm-Marrazzo Photography**).
So in case you happened to see this as you were flipping through your copy of InTouch Magazine, that’s why it looked so familiar. 🙂
The summer is slowly creeping to an end, and fall is sneaking on in. It’s starting to get a little colder at night. There are a few fallen leaves scattered here and there as the wind gusts through the trees. You’re favorite pumpkin spice coffee drink has reappeared on the menus. The season is changing and Autumn is right around the corner.
Autumn, the ever-sneaky season always finds a way of inching it’s way in when summer is still on everyone’s minds. So why not sneak up on Autumn? Start gathering your school books and pulling out your fall jackets because before you know it, you’ll be needing them!
Happy sneaking. 🙂
Winston Churchill once said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” Winston was right, in more than one way! Attitude is important not only in how you live your life, but also in how you take someone’s portrait. The attitude of your subject plays a major role in the over all atmosphere of the image. Therefore it is of dire importance to capture your subject in such a way that their attitude shines through.
The attitude that you catch your subject in also depends on the mood you are trying to convey with your photograph. Timing is everything. Catching that one facial expression, be it smile or scowl, is what makes the picture.
However, this doesn’t just go for portraits of people. Animals have attitudes, too!
Those of which Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo are unparalleled in capturing.
As you can see, the expression caught on Pippi’s face shows her fierce “CAT-itude!”
