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. 🙂

Using a Monochromatic Color Scheme

Color is always a very critical element to a photograph. Using color schemes and contrasting or complementary colors is a good way to create an aesthetically pleasing photograph. However, who ever said that a monochromatic photo couldn’t also be interesting? This image taken in Bermuda illustrates a very relaxing a calm environment which is accented by the many shades of blue composing the scene.

Next time you are making photographs, think about color. Carefully choose the color palette in your shot.
And remember, using a single color can create just as much of an impact as different color combinations.

Happy Shooting.

Bon Voyage!

Travel photography is really all about the joys of travelling. It’s about taking the time to look around and find the elegant beauty in the simple things of a foreign place.

Looking up and seeing this interesting roof scene captures a very different, yet equally captivating depiction of Bermuda.

When it comes to travel photography try keeping it simple, like how you would enjoy a relaxing vacation. Sometimes the most interesting photographs of a destination are of the less typical scenery.

So while you’re out travelling this summer keep this in mind!

Happy shooting!

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).

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!
