Take a look at the proof book and CD/DVD case from a recent wedding.  Every event we photograph comes with a custom designed proof book (hard or soft cover) and a custom designed CD/DVD case.  We offer so many other products as well, which will be showcased here in the coming weeks.  Stay tuned!

Bride on Horseback

The creative bridal session is a perfect way for a bride/couple/bridal party to show their true character.  This session is usually planned out with respect to location(s), types of images, props, etc…but on the day of, anything can happen depending on what the surroundings provide.  We just had a wonderful leisure bridal party shoot this past weekend in Philadelphia and we are super excited to share the images once they are edited. Check back soon for some more work.  In the meantime, if you are a bride to be, let us know if you have any questions about this type of shoot.  If you know a bride to be, share this with them.

Awhile back, John-Paul Palescandolo, one of this site’s contributors went on a tour of some abandoned subway sections of New York City.  Becoming a member of New York Transit Museum is a great opportunity for those who have further interest in this area of history.

John-Paul ended up with a wonderful original capture of the main archway of the Old City Hall station stop, with all of the vibrantly-colored tilework, except for one problem – there was a wooden ramp in view, something that he had no control over.  Well, he did what any good photographer would do, which is try to get the best possible shot anyway.

Difficult lighting situation here – Canon EOS 5D using the Canon 24/1.4L @ ISO 400.  Image was captured hand-held at about 1/15 sec.
After the RAW processing, we come away with an image that is technically quite good.  Here you are:

One of the services Kaz Arts Photography offers is product photography.  An extension of product photography is the documentation and archiving of artwork, whether it is a painting, sculpture, embroidery, or installation piece.  A large portion of our product photography business is in fact the documentation and archiving of pieces of art mostly for local artists, students, and private collectors who may need photographs for the insurance of their art pieces.  We can provide both digital files or if necessary mounted slides of the artworks.

This past weekend, Kerry had the opportunity to photograph a number of original artworks owned by a local private individual.  Her insurance company wanted the pieces re-appraised and in addition, they wanted visual confirmation of the artworks.  One of the paintings photographed this weekend was an original Diego Rivera from 1936.  This was quite exciting and by far one of the most valuable piece we have ever photographed.  The only item that really surpasses this in value was a collection of Nestorian crosses from the Stone Age which were recovered in Mongolia and are housed in the Drew University Archives.

Well, we just thought we would share with you a little bit of our excitement and offer a sample of the artwork.  The client has requested we do not show the entirety of the painting, and we will respect this request.  Enjoy!

If you have any questions on this service we provide, please e-mail us.

As I said, we do this for local artists who need their work digitized, for students who need slides to submit with the college applications and of course for insurance documentation.  No piece of artwork is too large or too small!
