Cold Weather is Rushing In!

From a solid 80 degrees earlier last week, this unpredictable NJ fall has sped into a chilly wintry temperature. With low temperatures creeping into the 40’s this weather is quite a shock! So get ready for a wild winter! Break out those heavy coats and toasty gloves for the frigid evenings ahead.

Although many of us weren’t ready for such a quick start into cold weather, embrace it! Have some hot coffee or hot chocolate and bundle yourself up. Get out and get some winter action like skiing up in the mountains before the winter rush!

Think warm thoughts!

Become a Gold Medalist in Sports Photography

With the Olympics commencing the whole world has sports on the brain! If you are one of the lucky people to be holding one of 8 million tickets to go and see the Olympics in London this year, you have got to be prepared to capture some great action shots. Make sure you are ready to catch the jumps, spins, and dives these world class athletes are serving up! And if you’re watching the Olympics from home like us, practice sports photography with your friends and family so you’re ready for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi!

  • Get your priorities straight.¬†Consider using the Shutter Priority Mode in your camera and choose a fast shutter speed! The faster your shutter speed is, the better you will be able to “freeze time,” allowing us to view an action in a way that we can’t typically see with the naked eye.
  • If the lens fits, use it! Choosing which lens to use depends on the types of images you’re going for. Consider telephoto lenses if you are in the nose bleed sections! Maybe try a wide angle lens to get views of the whole stadium environment. Choose a lens with a large aperture opening like f1.8 to allow for better captures in low-light.
  • Use a high ISO!¬†The higher the ISO you use, the more sensitive your camera is to light. This makes it easier to capture the action in low-lighting environments. However, beware of too much grain as the ISO gets into extremes.
  • What’s your angle?¬†When possible, experiment by shooting from different angles to catch the action from all sides.
  • Experiment!¬†Try some things you normally wouldn’t. What happens when you slow your shutter speed way down to show some movement? Or when you shoot from a super low angle? Take a look around, why not shoot some of the reactions in the crowd? Play around!
  • Cover your bases.¬†Be¬†prepared!¬†Bring extra batteries, memory cards,¬†external flash, and different lens options.

Lights, Camera, Shoot!

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.

Summer Days

Summer is officially here and the heat is starting to rise. It’s time to break out the ice cold lemonade and SPF 50 sunblock. Sometimes the only way to beat the heat on a summer afternoon is to just take a run through the sprinklers. Thanks to the Stewart family for having some fun with us and really capturing the spirit of summer.

Here are a few tips to get some great summer shots:

  1. When shooting outdoor portraiture try using a flash to fill in harsh sunlight shadows.
  2. Keep your camera in a cool place! Don’t leave it to bake in the sun on the dashboard of your car.
  3. Just as you wear sunglasses and baseball caps to protect your eyes, for a little extra shade use a lens hood or a UV filter for your camera.
  4. Make sure to compensate for the deep shadows and bright highlights you get from the noon-time sun.

‚ÄúSummer afternoon‚ÄĒsummer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.‚ÄĚ

Happy shooting; stay cool!

Motion

From squirmish kids to soccer games, fast cars and agility kittens, the art of capturing anything in motion is tricky business.

1. Find your focus point. Think ahead to where you think your subject will be and get ready.

2. Be patient! Try not to shoot too early, and make sure not to miss the moment.

3. Find a great angle, one that will best depict the story you are trying to share.

Here, our studio superstar, Pippi, shows off her jumping skills!
