Tech-Savvy

So, our tech-savvy Pyrenean Shepard, Whoopee wants to know, who has the new iPhone 5? This new piece of technology was released this week, and has some significant improvements with the photography aspect. It’s been reported that there are improvements in low-light captures, repetitive shooting without delay, and increased quality in the front camera. With technology improving it is becoming easier and easier to get good quality photos. Having the iPhone is great for capturing nice pictures on the go!

However, it’s important to remember that technology doesn’t make the photo, it’s the photographer behind the camera who makes or breaks an image. Technology can’t hold a candle to exceptional lighting and an interesting composition! That’s why there are still professionals. 🙂

Lunch?

 

Why not spend some of the last weeks of summer meeting up with some old friends?! Our talented Pyrenean Shepard, Whoopee is certainly interested!

Working with animals in photography as mentioned before can be a lot of fun, but difficult if working with untrained animals. Animals with basic training make good models. Animals with advanced training make great models! As you can see Whoopee has mastered holding things in her mouth for an extended period of time, as she awaits a reply for a lunch date. Not all dogs can do this, they have to be trained to hold the pose which is crucial in being able to create a photograph like this one.

Now, let’s not leave Whoopee hanging too long….Let’s do lunch!

Shocking Olympic Moments 2012

And the USA pulled through in the 2012 Olympic Games with an astonishing victory to snatch up first place.
The final medal count at USA with 46 Gold (104 Total) and China in second place with 38 Gold medals (88 total).
Although the US and China were neck and neck in the race, the US had a strong finish. However, this was not the most shocking moment of the Games.

Other than the amazing finish by the USA, some more
jaw-dropping olympic moments recapped here:

—Americans broke 7 world records this Olympics! Five in swimming, one in shooting and one in track…not to mention all were broken by women.—
—Michael Phelps says goodbye after an awe-inspiring record of 22 Olympic medals .—
—Four women’s teams were kicked out for intentionally tanking badminton matches.—
— World gymnastics Champion Jordyn Wieber missed her chance at the gold medal when she finished behind teammates Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas during the qualifying rounds.—
—Team USA’s Men’s Gymnastics team falls from first place rankings down to fifth.—
—China’s Yi Shiwen smashed a world record in the women’s 400-meter individual medley, finishing her 50 meter split faster than one of the best U.S. male swimmers, Ryan Lochte.

Until next time…

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!
