Key people contribute to the success of your business

So after a great summer, we lose our wonderful intern Jenn, who returns to Montclair U this week.

She is responsible for writing these great blogs and has been a fantastic assistant and addition to Bohm Marrazzo Photography, here in Montclair, NJ.

No matter what, Jenn always greets you with her great smile and sunny disposition – she will be sorely missed. How are we going to exist?

Yes, Amanda is coming back – but she’s Amanda and Jenn is Jenn and they are both so special and so different.Whether she is shooting in the OR or working on the computer, or slaving over a still life, her skills and work ethic are fabulous!

Jenn, we hope you’ll continue to work with us and come back next year. Thanks for being you and doing an outstanding job!!!!  A+ from your summer “teacher”. We hope our business doesn’t suffer  too much without you.

Love always, Linda, Gerry, Whoopee, Luca, Riplee and Pippi and the Fish and Amanda too.

Dive In!

 

Make a splash of the rest of the summer! Jump in to your local pool or swim club! Bring an underwater camera to catch some great summer action. Or stage some wet and wild summer adventures like Bohm-Marrazzo did here with these adorable bears. Believe it or not, still lives can be packed with just as much action as movement shots!
A few important things to consider when creating an action-filled still-life:

  1. Create the illusion of motion. As you can see the bears are posed in such a way that suggests momentum. The diving board the bear is jumping off of bends as if his weigh mid-jump is causing the spring!
  2. Lighting is key. Just as important as always, light the scene carefully!
  3. Think about the environment! The sky in the background and shrubbery along the fence suggest a very real setting to the viewer!
  4. Have fun with it!

Happy Shooting.

Gone Fishin’

The sun barely rising and a light fog hanging over the water. Soft sounds of birds and insects singing in harmony. What is more peaceful than a quiet morning on the water?

Fishing is a perfect summer activity to help you relax. So spend some time with your Papa bear and go out fishing together!

Moisture isn’t always a photographer’s enemy! Why not try out a disposable underwater camera and have a little fun? With a cheap alternative like the disposable underwater camera,

there is no need to worry about trying to keep your camera dry or buying an expensive water proof case. Just jump right in with your gear! Get some interesting angles of some of your favorite water-based past times.

Happy Splashing Shooting!

Depth of field

Choosing the depth of field of a photograph is a crucial part of creating an effective photograph. Selective focus on a certain part of the image directs the viewer’s eye to what you want them to focus on. As you can see in this example, the viewer’s attention is directed to the center of the artichoke, putting the emphasis on the texture of the vegetable.

Try this at home! Work on taking photographs of an object using varying points of focus and amounts of depth of field. See how this affects the image.

Happy shooting. 🙂
