Cemeteries aren’t always grave places

Recently, Linda Bohm was contacted by a woman from New Zealand requesting a quote for an unusual photography job. The inquiry was regarding a headstone of a long lost relative to be photographed. This headstone happened to be located only 5 minutes from our studio in Montclair, NJ at the Rosedale Cemetery. Needless to say, Linda accepted the job and set off on the adventure of finding this headstone.The Rosedale Cemetery is extremely large in size and also very beautiful. Acres and acres of beautiful trees and winding paths make a wonderful home for not only souls at rest, but also an abundance of wildlife. Families of deer freely prance through the park with safety from cars and hunters. Although photographing a headstone may seem like a strange request, the job turned out to be extremely interesting and beautiful. Using available light, Bohm-Marrazzo Photography captured the wonderful environment of the resting place.

Yet another interesting genre of work to add to the repertoire. 🙂

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!
