It’s all in the Details

We had an amazing opportunity to photograph an Engagement Proposal – The soon to Bride and Groom were ecstatic as the sun set over the New York Skyline, and the stars came out to shine.

While everyone was looking up and out, your handy photographers were looking down, thrilled to catch the light hitting our man’s shoes.   It seemed to be the perfect chance to photograph the gorgeous ring, however, this was not our goal.  It was more about showing off the gentlemans style, rather than the details of the diamond.

As we like to say… “It’s all in the details”!

Will You Marry Me?

We had the amazing opportunity to be a part of a surprise proposal —

Our eager groom-to-be got down on one knee and asked the love of his life for her hand in marriage, while overlooking  a lit up skyline of New York City from the hills of Montclair, NJ.

We, your trusted photographers, hid in the bushes.

Our best wishes for our happy newly engaged couple!  Congrats!

This happy blogger once wanted to be a race car driver — what did you want to be when you were a kid? Are you doing that now?

“In 1986, Marlboro increased its auto racing involvement,
sponsoring its first Indy Car entry . The Marlboro #20 March 86C,
prepared by Patrick Racing, was driven by two-time Formula One
World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi . Marlboro was Fittipaldi’s
sponsor in 1974 when he won his second Formula One World Title
with the Marlboro McLaren Team . Fittipaldi won his first Indy
Car race for Marlboro at Elkhart Lake .” –http://legacy.library.ucsf.edu/documentStore/w/o/o/woo48c00/Swoo48c00.pdf

Ektachromes

We’ve been doing some spring cleaning!  We opened our drawers, filing cabinets and trunks and started going through some old film, slides and negatives from back in the day when there were no digital cameras, and definitely no photoshop!

Ektachrome is a brand name owned by Kodak for a range of transparency, still, and motion picture films available in most formats, including 35 mm and sheet sizes to 11×14 inch size.  Ektachrome, initially developed in the early 1940s, allowed professionals and amateurs alike to process their own films. It also made color reversal film more practical in larger formats, and the Kodachrome Professional film in sheet sizes was later discontinued.   –Wikipedia

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.

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.

On Pointe

onpointe

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!

Show Your Stripes!

Creating an artistic illusion with body paint

DID YOU KNOW that when zebras stay close as a group, their wavy stripes blend together to protect any single zebra from being noticed by dangerous prey? Talk about the power of natural instinct. How will you use your stripes today?

Exteriors

Photographing architecture, both interior and exterior, can be a tricky task.  But when done properly, can result in a great image and perspective of what you’re trying to capture.

For exteriors, if possible, try to shoot on a day where the weather is to your benefit.  Photographing a children’s kindergarten school in the dead of winter with no sunlight and broken eerie tree branches… well let’s just say that might not be ideal.   A haunted house, on the other hand, will thrive in a spooky setting.

You will also need to learn how to do a basic edit in regards to proportion.  Have you ever tried to take a photo of a building and it comes out all wonky?  Trust me.. it was not built that way.  With a standard lens, you will always have some sort of distortion.

And of course, practice makes perfect.  So get out there! And happy shooting!
