Graduation

As the school season comes to an end, we happily start cleaning out our lockers, finishing up those doodles on our desks and count down the days until Mr. SoandSo from chemistry gives us back our confiscated items. 

For those of you who have at least another year until graduation… hang in there!  You can do it!  

Here are some helpful hints to get you through the rest of your school years.. 

1. Study – for real. Sometimes learning can actually be fun!

2. Eat more veggies!  The greener, the better.

3. De-clutter.  It’ll help your concentration.

4. SLEEP.  Try it.  And we don’t mean sleeping through the morning… we mean an actual good nights rest.

For those of you putting on that cap and gown.. we would like to wish you well!  CONGRATS!  Happy Graduation!  Good Luck!

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!

Happy Birthday Whoopee!

HAPPY 13TH BIRTHDAY WHOOPEE!

Today, we celebrate our Pyrenean Sheppard’s 13th Birthday!  MACH “Whoopee” was among the trailblazing Pyr Sheps who made their mark in the agility world. Retired from the ring for the past four years, she lives an active life of modeling, hiking and running our photography business.

We happily celebrate this long life after finding an aggressive cancer tumor on her hind foot.

Read below to see some of our updates on her progress. 

April 19, 2013:  Radiation journey begins… Waiting for my terrific little pyr shep to begin her healing journey for a sarcoma that has all but covered her hind foot. Today is the fitting for an demobilizer so the radiation next week can be precise. Trying to hold my emotions in check …. Not easy as everyone of you knows what it’s like to fight for your dog’s life.

April 29, 2013: Whoopee Radiation Report – thanks to everyone for support and healing prayers – this new experience is so far a non event.

We went to the Vet MRI & Radiotherapy Center of NJ, located in Clifton, where she showed no fear each of the four consecutive days we went last week. The staff were so caring and attentive to Whoopee that she actually pulled me into the front door each day – how about that? After the initial CAT Scan, they made a mold of her body with a cover that would insure the exact position each of the three days of radiation.

She went through the full anesthesia with no problem and seems very happy. Now it’s a waiting game, as it takes several months to see the effects – good and bad – of the radiation on her foot and tumor. I did the right thing with this treatment and hope that it adds a few more happy years to her life expectancy. I highly recommend this center – which is one of only three in the country that offer a three day radiation treatment for tumors. Hope none of you ever need it for your four legged children.

May 7, 2013: The radiation worked!!!!!Whoopee’s horrible tumor on her hind foot is already shrinking and today, oncologist Dr. Renee Alsarraf, saw her and was thrilled to see so much change in just two weeks of the concentrated radiation treatment. Looks like we’re on the road to recovery!!!!!! Thank you Dr. Alsarraf and all you wonderful friends who sent healing prayers and good energy to help my wonderful pyr shep fight cancer and hopefully, beat it.

May 23, 2013Whoopee celebrates this day with a big smile – she feels great – her appetite is back and she even jumped over some low fences in the backyard – thanks to state of the art radiation cancer treatment available and great vets – we look forward to the next milestone with her cancer in remission!

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’.

Happy Zooming!  Happy Cropping!
