Cemeteries aren’t always grave places

Recently, Linda Bohm was contacted by a woman from New Zealand requesting a quote for an unusual photography job. The inquiry was regarding a headstone of a long lost relative to be photographed. This headstone happened to be located only 5 minutes from our studio in Montclair, NJ at the Rosedale Cemetery. Needless to say, Linda accepted the job and set off on the adventure of finding this headstone.The Rosedale Cemetery is extremely large in size and also very beautiful. Acres and acres of beautiful trees and winding paths make a wonderful home for not only souls at rest, but also an abundance of wildlife. Families of deer freely prance through the park with safety from cars and hunters. Although photographing a headstone may seem like a strange request, the job turned out to be extremely interesting and beautiful. Using available light, Bohm-Marrazzo Photography captured the wonderful environment of the resting place.

Yet another interesting genre of work to add to the repertoire. 🙂

Photographing Food in an Environment

 

When photographing food in an environmental setting, attention to detail is key. Notice the creamy cup of butter next to the pastry?
Or the carefully placed newspaper by the coffee? The soft background baked goods add more of an atmosphere to the scene. The lighting hints at a morning glow around the food.
These details can help the viewer envision themselves in the setting and enjoying the wonderful food!

There is no better way to start off your week than with a perfectly brewed cup of coffee and a delicious pastry.
These scrumptious morsels were photographed for Samba restaurant in Montclair, NJ.
Why not head on over to make your Monday a little sweeter?

Happy Shooting Feasting. 🙂

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.

Gecko Portrait Photography Tips

We’ve all seen the Geico Gecko commercials. However, in real life Gecko’s are not quite so charismatic. They take some work to get their portrait! This gecko seen in Bermuda was a great model, (who has likely had some freelance experience modeling for tourists).

Don’t fret! You can get a great Gecko portrait too! Here’s how:
  1. Don’t worry about a gecko blinking while taking the photo. Most geckos don’t have eyelids and therefore never blink!
  2. Don’t pose your Gecko subject on anything made of Teflon. It’s the only known surface a gecko’s feet can’t stick to so your model will be sliding all over.
  3. Gecko’s are the only lizards that can vocalize! So don’t be afraid to talk to them while they strut their stuff, they can talk back!
  4. Try to choose a sunny location for your Gecko supermodel. They are coldblooded and need the sun to stay warm!

Happy Shooting!
