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.
Winston Churchill once said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” Winston was right, in more than one way! Attitude is important not only in how you live your life, but also in how you take someone’s portrait. The attitude of your subject plays a major role in the over all atmosphere of the image. Therefore it is of dire importance to capture your subject in such a way that their attitude shines through.
The attitude that you catch your subject in also depends on the mood you are trying to convey with your photograph. Timing is everything. Catching that one facial expression, be it smile or scowl, is what makes the picture.
However, this doesn’t just go for portraits of people. Animals have attitudes, too!
Those of which Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo are unparalleled in capturing.
As you can see, the expression caught on Pippi’s face shows her fierce “CAT-itude!”
-You are here to help make your client look their best, so make sure they do.
-Pay special attention to body position. The slightest change in shoulder height, face angle, and posture can make a world of difference.
-Choose an outfit that is flattering, yet not distracting from the true subject of the photograph.
-Take your shot in a natural looking setting. Consider color palette always.
-Make your model comfortable. Make conversation; tell jokes! Do what you have to, in order to bring out their inner supermodel!
Now its your turn! Part of the fun in being a photographer is wearing many hats, right? Be a set designer, make up artist, hair dresser, and photographer all at the same time!
