Mother Knows Best…

Mother Peacock & Babies

Hurry! Let’s get going!

Sound familiar? Yup…Moms come in all forms and as we all know…it really doesn’t matter if the kid is human or animal – she just knows what’s best.

Amazing – this peacock mom knows instinctively that her babies are safest in the forest. “Instinct” – what is it? It’s that feeling down deep in your gut, not in your head, in the very pit of your stomach that tells you what to do.

When you see a situation that needs immediate response – you just do it – haha, kind of like Nike – imagine you’re sitting in the eighty second row of Yankee Stadium…Jeter strikes a foul…the ball sails left, headed right for your face…..Instinct – got it!!! you put up your hands and you just won the lottery for any Yankee enthusiast.

Or you see some ducklings cross the road with a MACK truck careening towards them – instinct and some insanity throws you in front of the truck to save the ducklings – instinct…safety.

Not so dramatically,  photographers who capture animals for a living have to have animal instincts too …even if they’re only human – if you want to capture something out of the ordinary, it simply comes from your gut.

Exteriors

Photographing architecture, both interior and exterior, can be a tricky task.  But when done properly, can result in a great image and perspective of what you’re trying to capture.

For exteriors, if possible, try to shoot on a day where the weather is to your benefit.  Photographing a children’s kindergarten school in the dead of winter with no sunlight and broken eerie tree branches… well let’s just say that might not be ideal.   A haunted house, on the other hand, will thrive in a spooky setting.

You will also need to learn how to do a basic edit in regards to proportion.  Have you ever tried to take a photo of a building and it comes out all wonky?  Trust me.. it was not built that way.  With a standard lens, you will always have some sort of distortion.

And of course, practice makes perfect.  So get out there! And happy shooting!

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!

Wakey Wakey Eggs and Bac-y

Rise and shine! Take a big stretch and wipe the sleep out of those eyes! The week is mid-way through!

Reine the lovely Afghan hound certainly got her beauty sleep! But was it enough? If you’re having a tough time waking up today, like Reine, read on!

Here are some tips and tricks to get yourself awake and ready for the day:

  1. Drink a cool glass of water in the morning. The cool temperature will wake you up and the water will kickstart your metabolism making you wake up faster.
  2. Exercise in the morning! A brisk jog or bike ride in the morning air will waken your body and give you more energy for the following day as you improve your fitness.
  3. Don’t drink coffee everyday. You’re body will be accustomed to the effects of caffeine. Save the coffee for those days you really need it!
  4. Don’t Snooze! Snoozing the alarm clock can often make you more tired than if you wake up when your alarm first goes off.
  5. Get pumped! Find something to get excited about today to get you motivated to get moving.

Thanks to Diane Bauman for our sleeping beauty, Reine.

The flight of the monarch

Monarch butterflies are amazing creatures. Fall is the time when monarchs begin their migration. Unlike other butterflies North American Monarchs travel up to 3,000 miles in migration each year. They make the round trip voyage once in their lives, and then their children and grandchildren follow the same migration root in the future, often returning to the same trees as their ancestors to avoid bitter winters. However, only the fourth generation monarchs migrate each year; the first three generations die after only six weeks of being out of their cocoons, whereas the fourth generation can live for 6-8 months.

As you can see these creatures are extremely delicate and beautiful. Preserved butterflies make for a beautiful natural prop in photography.

 

As fall breezes in, watch for monarchs in your area! Track the flight of the monarchs and when you should be able to see them here: http://www.monarchwatch.org/tagmig/peak.html

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. :]
