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. 🙂

Wacky Wednesday

Sometimes you just need to laugh! Especially on those Wednesdays where it seems you’ve got a lot more of the week left than has already passed. To get you over that hump, Bohm-Marrazzo Photography has some funny pictures to share with you that will surely bring a smile to your face.

Say cheese! Gunner, the yellow lab sticks his tongue out at the camera during a photo shoot for Frontline last year. Sometimes the outtakes of a photoshoot are just as golden as the intended shot. So don’t delete those “in-between” images; take a look there may be something of value in there!

Thanks to Sue Johnson for the ever-charming Gunner.

Happy Wednesday!

Olympic Cats Featured in InTouch Magazine

As you may remember, our Olympic cats pridefully celebrate their victories on the podium. Our photograph was featured on page 64 of the August 27th issue of InTouch Magazine! Just as the cats are super excited, so are we!

“The caption reads: “Inspired by Olympian Gabby Douglas, rescue cat Riplee, 2, raises his arms to celebrate his win over Pippi and Bonnie. The feline friends owned and photographed by Linda Bohm of Montclair, N.J., re-created this gymnastics ceremony by proudly posing in front of the famous rings.

(**Should read photographed by Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo of Bohm-Marrazzo Photography**).

So in case you happened to see this as you were flipping through your copy of InTouch Magazine, that’s why it looked so familiar. 🙂

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!

Manic Monday

 

It’s the beginning of the week, which sometimes feels like an unsurmountable challenge. With the weekend so far away, no amount of coffee or sandbag stress balls can get you through it. Sounds like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays.

However, the best thing the doctor can prescribe for those wicked Monday symptoms is a little Serotonin-“The Molecule of Happiness” !

Here’s what the doctor recommends:

Breathe. Smile. Read a few jokes or look at some silly pictures of animals from Bohm-Marrazzo Photography’s blog. Laugh.
Repeat 10-15 times daily or as needed.

Get well soon! 🙂

Put ‘Em Up!

As the Italian Stallion Rocky Balboa once said, “it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”

Claressa Shields, 17 year old American Boxing Olympic hopeful is an inspiration to our “Riplee Shields” who has gone undefeated in all her matches. It must be those hand-made gloves
that Linda Bohm crafted just for her. She takes on every opponent, even if they are twice her size. This image was shot for Splash News to show the world that there are gold medal winners in every species.

Stay tuned to find out about more Animal Olympic Medalists!

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).
Image
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!
