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!

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!

Happy Mothers Day

Wishing everyone and their families a very Happy Mothers Day!

Our good friend Diane Bauman shared a special occasion with us — one of her sheep giving birth to not one, but TWO beautiful little ones.   We were fortunate enough to have a camera handy as the proud mama delivered the babies one after the other.

The whole sheep family then came by to congratulate and welcome the new additions!

 The lambs were quickly up on their feet, walking around and exploring.  Soon after, they cozied up to their (exhausted!) mother and took a restful nap!

Lights. Camera. Action!

It’s definitely been a while since our last post!  …

We seemed to have missed the entire end of April!  

We hope it’s not too late for a pinch and punch for the First of the Month!

May the Fourth Be With You!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

 Holy Batman!  We’ve been busy!!!!!

Well, don’t you worry… we’re back!   We’ve just recently finished up a great TV commercial — we had the wonderful opportunity of working with some great Directors, Stylists and Videographers.  We’ll post the spot once it airs, but for now… we can show you a little behind the scenes action!

Let’r Rip!

Our wonderfully strong, Riplee, has done it again!   

Riplee Balboa defended her World Titles by defeating The Other Guy  in round 3 of their heavyweight battle. It was the 25th victory of Riplee’s career to end by knockout and her 27th victory overall. Riplee Balboa, the wondercat, dominated from start to finish. Whatever game plan The Other Guy brought into the ring failed miserably, he could not keep up with the range and power of his mighty opponent.

 

 

Put ’em up!!!

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!

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!
