Beat the Heat

At this moment, my weather app says 95 degrees F and feels like 101. How to beat the heat? Danboard has the right idea. I caught him running through the fountain outside our apartment building. Stay cool everyone!

Save the Date Photos – Iwona & Khash

We went in with a few ideas from the bride to be as well as some of our own, and came out with some fun “Save the Date” and engagement photos for the new couple. Natural light and a beautiful park created a great setting for the shoot.

Sleepy Product Photography

CPAP_Product_Photography_Jeff_Baumgart

Besides the fact that he had to wear a CPAP mask over his face for a couple hours, it was a pretty relaxing photo shoot for our model, Patrick. We were making some lifestyle product photos for the SoClean CPAP sanitizer from Better Rest Solutions. They were looking for some fresh photos for their newly launched website, Amazon store, and other marketing material. We didn’t have a real bed in our studio, so we faked it with a chair, ottoman, and some pillows and blankets. Check out their new website at http://www.betterrestsolutions.com to see some more of our work.

Monochro-Mountains

Black and white winter photography of Tatra mountains in Poland by Jeff Baumgart

There’s no predicting mountain weather, it can change so quickly. The Tatra Mountains near Zakopane, Poland are no exception. What to do when the weather doesn’t cooperate? No need to put the camera away! There are always good shots to be found. Since the cloudy skies and fresh snow cover made the views naturally monochromatic, I decided to work with it and go for a black and white treatment. Not much beats hiking through deep snow in the mountains with a camera and tripod!

Ladybug Hunting

Actually, you don’t really have to hunt for them at all. There are some shrubs outside of our building that seem to be a perfect habitat for ladybugs. Armed with a 100mm macro lens, tripod and a collapsible reflector, I tried to get a few photos of the ladies. They don’t move around a whole lot, so they are fairly easy to photograph. I had one shot set up perfectly, but just as I was pressing the shutter, it flew away. The result was a cool photo showing a ladybug like I have never seen before. It’s amazing how those tiny wings fold up so precisely under that fragile little shell.

Fisheye by the Seaside

We spent the day in Gloucester and Rockport last weekend. It was the first time testing out my new Nikon 10.5mm f2.8 fisheye lens. It’s a lot of fun, but I may return it and go for the famous Tokina ultra wide 11-16mm f2.8. While I love the fisheye effect, I think the 11-16 might be a lot more versatile, especially for video. Any thoughts?
