Blowie

Meet Blowie, our resident giant fish.  Don’t be intimidated by his size – he’s a big mush at heart.

Fish can be very intelligent – swimming next to Nemo and Dori, Blowie knows when lunch time is just by seeing his favorite blue feeding cup.

At the studio, our saltwater fish provide countless hours of entertainment for all our guests.

So come on by, sit on the couch, and relax!

Tis the Season…for Flu Shots!

It’s that time of year again! Sneezing, coughing, fevers….colds and viruses are going around. Combat against sickness and germs by following a few guidelines:

  • Remember to wash your hands with warm water and soap often.
  • When coughing and sneezing, use a tissue or your elbow! Keep your hands germ free.
  • Dress for the weather. Be prepared for chilly nights or rain showers that may sneak up on you. Pack a coat and small umbrella in your bag.
  • Get a flu vaccination. Either by nasal spray or shot, arm yourself against this year’s flu virus.
  • Make sure you get plenty of rest. Keep your immune system going strong by getting the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

Don’t let your health stand in the way of making photographs! Prevent illness so you can keep on keepin’ on, and do what you do best!

Stay healthy!

Wakey Wakey Eggs and Bac-y

Rise and shine! Take a big stretch and wipe the sleep out of those eyes! The week is mid-way through!

Reine the lovely Afghan hound certainly got her beauty sleep! But was it enough? If you’re having a tough time waking up today, like Reine, read on!

Here are some tips and tricks to get yourself awake and ready for the day:

  1. Drink a cool glass of water in the morning. The cool temperature will wake you up and the water will kickstart your metabolism making you wake up faster.
  2. Exercise in the morning! A brisk jog or bike ride in the morning air will waken your body and give you more energy for the following day as you improve your fitness.
  3. Don’t drink coffee everyday. You’re body will be accustomed to the effects of caffeine. Save the coffee for those days you really need it!
  4. Don’t Snooze! Snoozing the alarm clock can often make you more tired than if you wake up when your alarm first goes off.
  5. Get pumped! Find something to get excited about today to get you motivated to get moving.

Thanks to Diane Bauman for our sleeping beauty, Reine.

The Art of Art Copy

Art copy work is an important branch of photography. It is important to pay close attention to detail and be very meticulous. We photographed the paintings of the very talented Dr. Marc Malberg. His work is based on different biblical themes with incorporated surrealism.  We photographed his paintings to look as close to they do in reality. Take a look at these marvelous works of art for yourself.  

Marc I. Malberg, MD
Helen of Troy, 1985, 72×48

When photographing art:

  • Use lighting that will portray the image as it is supposed to be shown.
  • Using color management tools like the color checker passport is imperative to reproducing the colors the artist intended.
  • Perspective should be kept direct and un-skewed.
  • As always, make your subject (in this case the art) look it’s best.

Happy Shooting.

Who’s your favorite olympian?

At Bohm-Marrazzo Photography we’re a big fan of swimming prodigy, Michael Phelps. So is the lovely border collie “Luca Phelps”.
Here, she takes on the character of 22-time gold medalist Michael Phelps. Recuperating from some world record breaking laps in the pool, Luca still finds the composure to pose for the camera.

Unfortunately we were not able to go to London to shoot at the Olympic pool, so we posed our Olympian in the studio and compiled the image with a background of the pool–Thanks to Gerry’s photoshop expertise. You would never know she wasn’t actually an olympic swimmer would you? This photograph was taken for SPLASH News (and for our amusement)!

Happy Sporting. Game on!

Special thanks to Diane Bauman for the lovely Luca!

Using a Monochromatic Color Scheme

Color is always a very critical element to a photograph. Using color schemes and contrasting or complementary colors is a good way to create an aesthetically pleasing photograph. However, who ever said that a monochromatic photo couldn’t also be interesting? This image taken in Bermuda illustrates a very relaxing a calm environment which is accented by the many shades of blue composing the scene.

Next time you are making photographs, think about color. Carefully choose the color palette in your shot.
And remember, using a single color can create just as much of an impact as different color combinations.

Happy Shooting.

Dive In!

 

Make a splash of the rest of the summer! Jump in to your local pool or swim club! Bring an underwater camera to catch some great summer action. Or stage some wet and wild summer adventures like Bohm-Marrazzo did here with these adorable bears. Believe it or not, still lives can be packed with just as much action as movement shots!
A few important things to consider when creating an action-filled still-life:

  1. Create the illusion of motion. As you can see the bears are posed in such a way that suggests momentum. The diving board the bear is jumping off of bends as if his weigh mid-jump is causing the spring!
  2. Lighting is key. Just as important as always, light the scene carefully!
  3. Think about the environment! The sky in the background and shrubbery along the fence suggest a very real setting to the viewer!
  4. Have fun with it!

Happy Shooting.
