Parachutes

In June,  we had the wonderful opportunity to shoot a local TV commercial for St. Peter’s University Hospital.

St. Peter’s has a large pediatric program and delivers as many as 6,100 babies each year! This commercial is meant to highlight their many advanced departments in baby and child care.

It was baby-mania for the days leading up to this shoot – including casting for all of the little ones and going into full production mode!

Here is one of the spots that St. Peter’s has posted on their website, and has been showing on local television:

 

Thanks to all the babies and their parents who participated. The third and final  spot will hopefully be coming out soon. Stay tuned!!

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!

Comp Card Candids

While these last days of nice weather begin to dwindle, make sure you make time to get out and enjoy the fresh air. James Boland here knows how to go out and make the best of the weather while playing soccer with his brother.

When shooting images for a model’s  comp card it’s important to capture the subject in different lights. Having a formal headshot is always crucial, but the comp card is a lot stronger with some natural candid-style images included. This image for example shows James’s body structure and is a nice shot of him having a great time doing one o his favorite activities. When shooting multiple images for a comp card remember to change up:

-wardrobe-
-location-
-style-
-angles-

Happy Shooting. :]

Back to School

It’s that time of year again. Everyone’s back from their last hoorah Labor Day weekend getaway. The kids are in bed early, lunch is packed, and everyone’s new shoes are ready to be worn.

It’s the first day of school.

Remember, you never get a second chance at a first impression. So, dress for success and hop on the bus! (^^Not like some of these slackers.)

Enjoy the first day back at school if you’re a student, (and if you’re a parent!) Get back into learning mode. Take some new ideas home with you every day. But don’t worry, even if you’re not learning anything fun in school, you can always learn fun things about photography here on Bohm-Marrazzo Photography’s blog. Be sure to do your homework and keep reading our notes…you will be tested.

Happy Learning. 🙂

Bundles of Joy

Back in June, we shot a local TV commercial for St. Peter’s University Hospital. St. Peter’s has a large pediatric program and delivers as many as 6,100 babies each year! This commercial is meant to highlight their many advanced departments in baby and child care. It was a lot of fun shooting this commercial and casting all the babies for it. Here is one of the spots that St. Peter’s has posted on their website:

Thanks to all the babies and their parents who participated. The other spots will hopefully be coming out soon. Stay tuned!!

Photographing Kids and Animals

W. C. Fields once said “Never work with kids or animals.” Here at Bohm-Marrazzo Photography, we disagree. We work with children and animals on a regular basis because we enjoy it! Don’t be fooled, working with kids and animals is not easy. As fun and warm-hearted people, it’s a natural ability for Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo to be so well-versed in animal training and child wrangling.The combination of photographic expertise and psychology allows for the capture of perfect expressions and poses on those two or four-legged subjects.

Here are some basic tips for photographing, the sometimes hard to manage subjects of animals and children:

  • Patience is a virtue. As obvious as this may sound, it can be easy to lose patience when trying to get a subject who doesn’t understand you to do what you want.
  • Reward them! When using food or toys to get the attention of an animal or kid, allow them to get a little taste or get their hands (or paws) on that toy for a moment to maintain their interest.
  • Mi studio es su casa. Make them feel at home. Creating a comfortable environment where you’re shooting helps to take some stress of the subject.
  • Minimize distractions. Only one person should be trying to get the attention of the subject. When multiple people are calling or waving toys and treats, the animal or kid doesn’t know who to look at creating confusion.
  • Give them (and yourself) a break. If things aren’t going so smoothly and your subject is getting antsy, let them take a few minutes to relax off set.

Happy Shooting!

Rain, rain, go away…or stay.

There is something relaxing and beautiful about a rainy summer day. The heavy grey clouds filter the harsh sun into a calming soft light.
Cool droplets of water sprinkle the thirsty plants and over-baked pavement. Spend the day inside enjoying the simple pleasures of home. Or go out and embrace the weather.
Overcast skies often create some of the most captivating light for photography. Take an umbrella (for you and your camera), and photograph out in the rain!

Go ahead, jump in the puddles; get soaked! Who said a beautiful day had to be a sunny day?

Happy Shooting. 🙂
