A Style Photography: Blog https://www.astylephotography.com/blog en-us A Style Photography, Inc. amanda@astylephotography.com (A Style Photography) Thu, 09 Aug 2018 17:18:00 GMT Thu, 09 Aug 2018 17:18:00 GMT Crystal Ball Lens Refraction Photography https://www.astylephotography.com/blog/2018/8/crystal-ball-lens-refraction-photography-tips Crystal Ball Lens Refraction Photography

8-18CrystalBall-36308-18CrystalBall-3630Crystal Ball Refraction Photography

    I recommend experimenting with a Refractique crystal ball to bring a new creative look to your photography.  Refraction happens when light passes through crystal or water and the light is bent creating distortion.  When photographing through a crystal ball the image will become inverted.  I could have flipped the refracted image below in Photoshop, but I kinda of like it upside to be unique. 

8-18CrystalBall-3615-7918-18CrystalBall-3615-791Crystal Ball Refraction Photography

    I recently took the crystal ball to a local botanical garden and was impressed with the cool images I created.   The refraction ball gave me a new focus and I tried new angles.  For some of them I got down really low on the ground. 

8-18CrystalBall-36978-18CrystalBall-3697Crystal Ball Refraction Photography

    I used my hand to hold the Lensball in some of the images and for others I found surfaces to set the crystal ball on such as rocks.  The lens is like a magnifying glass so if you hold it to long in the bright sun it will start to get hot on your hand, so shoot fast.

8-18CrystalBall-36778-18CrystalBall-3677Crystal Ball Refraction Photography

   Here's an image I created of the Bok Towers in Lake Wales, Florida. It's cool to see the tower reflected into the crystal ball.  I used Bokeh to blur out the real tower, so your eye can focus on the inverted reflection of Bok Towers.  I experimented with several different lenses while testing the crystal ball, and I personally like using the Nikon 24-120mm N lens to show more of the scene.  In additiona, it was easy to shoot with the camera in one hand and the crystal ball in the other.  I think it would be better to use a tripod when using a macro or telephoto lens.  I look forward to experimenting more with my new Refractique crystal ball and encourage you to try some refraction photos too.

Animal Handling Gloves https://www.astylephotography.com/blog/2018/8/animal-handling-gloves AVITZ Animal Handling Gloves

7-18AxelDiesel-2759-5557-18AxelDiesel-2759-555Animal Handling Gloves - Product Photography by A Style Photography

       The Avitz animal handling gloves are made of cowhide leather to help protect your hands. The gloves work well with pets and especially those who work in the animal field such as vets and rescue groups. Putting on the gloves helps the user to feel safe from being bit or scratched and at the same time gain confidence from wearing the glove when handling all types of animals such as birds, reptiles, cats, dogs, chickens, and lots more.

The Handling Gloves are great for handling cats who do not like to be picked up.  My cats liked the smell of the leather gloves and enjoyed being petted by them.  They are great for handling feral cats too.

7-18AxelDiesel-2725-5587-18AxelDiesel-2725-558Animal Handling Gloves - Product Photography by A Style Photography

The gloves are great for checking animals teeth and gums which if checked regularly can catch signs of dental disease before they become a problem.  If you see any signs such as red gums, bleeding, discolored teeth, plaque or tartar, or pain if you touch the gums or mouth, please have your dog check by a veterinarian.

The Avitz Gloves can also be use for more than just animals. They are great for gardening and help prevent cuts from thorns or twigs.  You can also use them while grilling on the BBQ.

Help Kylee https://www.astylephotography.com/blog/2018/4/help-kylee Help Kylee the rescue Miniature Schnauzer Defeat Cushings!

The Story

This is Kylee, the remarkable 10-year old Miniature Schnauzer who survived the first two years of her life on a dirty puppy mill in Missouri.  She doesn't do outlandish tricks or anything super special, but she is super special to me. She is my life. She was rescued in 2010, but life has not been easy for her.  

4-18Kylee-22504-18Kylee-2250Kylee's Pet Photo shoot in Orlando, FL

For most of her life, she has been very timid and scared of almost all humans. We don't know what happened at the puppy mill, but we can imagine. To this day, she runs if someone raises their voice and she is not inclined to be a trusting dog, much to the chagrin of my friends.

Kylee was so scared as a result of the puppy mill that we attended Nose work classes and competitions in Florida to try and build up her confidence. It worked. Kylee's confidence and zest for life soared, but now she needs your help.

11-15Kylee0363-411-15Kylee0363-4Kylee's Pet Photo shoot in Orlando, FL

Kylee's health has greatly deteriorated during the past year. It began with protein in her urine.  Since that time and after many tests, veterinary visits, and many medications and holistic supplements; the prognosis includes a grade 5 heart murmur, a mildly-enlarged heart, an enlarged liver, an inflamed gall bladder and spleen, and hypothyroidism. 

The wonderful vets and staff at Florida Wild in Deland say that she has Cushing's Disease.  Cushing's disease increases the release of cortisol in the body and wreaks havoc with most of the organs. Some symptoms of Cushing's are greatly-increased thirst and urination, but Kylee is also experience great difficulty breathing because of her distended belly (enlarged liver).

Cushing's Disease has no cure and does eventually take its victim, but there have been great breakthroughs with removing the cause of the disease: the tumor from either adrenal glands or the pituitary gland. 

I have exhausted all of my savings and credit in dealing with Kylee's health issues so far, but I just cannot give up and let this disease win.  If surgery can remove the cause of this problem and let her compete in in her beloved Nose work competitions again as well as let her regain her love of life, I have to try everything I can to get her that surgery. This is why I am asking for your help. I have never asked anyone for help like this before, so the situation is dire without your help.

For Kylee to have the surgery, if she is deemed to be a candidate, the bills will probably accrue up to $10K. I lie awake at nights worrying about how to deal with this. I am glad, however, that we have great vets and great facilities like the University of Florida and Florida Wild nearby.

Kylee and I are forever grateful, and we thank you.

Carol

My cats just got the chance to model with a new heated pet mat and they are fighting over who gets to lay on it.

I got a second heated pet mat, but then I stole it from my cats because it also makes the purr-fect heated back mat for me while editing photos.  I guess I need to order more mats for my six cats.  Too bad Christmas is over because my kitties could have asked Santa for more beds.

12-17ArtofPaws-826112-17ArtofPaws-8261A Style Photography - Pet and Product Photography featuring Art of Paws

I like that the cover comes off easily to wash away all the fur and keep the house cleaner and less fur on my bed.

10-174CatPost-1023-637010-174CatPost-1023-6370Art of Paws - Cat Scratch Post - Product Photography by A Style Photography

It's nice and tall which is great for my cat, Winter who likes to scratch high on walls.   It's 35.5" tall which is perfect for my cats to use to fully stretch the shoulders and back.  It's also great exercise for the cats to stretch and jump.  The cat post is also great for multiple cats and helps keep their claws healthy.

10-174CatPost-0978-638610-174CatPost-0978-6386The Art of Paws Cat scratch post has be claimed by Winter's Mama, Olive as her favorite spot. She likes to sit high on her perch and view the outside world.

The cat scratch post is made with sisal fabric which last longer than the rope and looks nicer.  It looks like carpet and is great for the cats to sharpen their nails on.  I'd much rather have them scratch on the post rather than my walls or leather chair.  I also like that the top fabric piece is just held on with velcro, so I can easily pull it off to wash their fur off of it.

My cats had fun helping me put the cat scratch post together.  They were getting really excited for their new toy.  All tools were included and easy to follow instructions.  It was really easy and only took a few minutes.  The Art of Paws Cat scratch post has be claimed by Winter's Mama, Olive as her favorite spot.   She likes to sit high on her perch and view the outside world.

Since I took some doggie bubble bath photos a few months ago, Z Lux Skin Care suggested I photograph their soaps and scrubs in my bathroom.  I added candles to give the scene a romantic day spa feeling.

Here's a photo of my hand pouring the lavender bath minerals into my bathtub.  I love the pretty purple color.  I can't decide if my favorite color is purple or red?  What's your favorite color or do you have multiple favorites?

My cats even loved the lavender scent so much that they photo bombed my photo shoot.

Have you ever tried to give your cats a bath?  

I tried once and that was enough for me and my cats.

  So I found a much better solution for us which is Bioline Dry Foam Shampoo.  

It's great for pets who are afraid of water.  It's mild and safe for sensitive skin.

Bioline carries lots of pet products for cats and dogs.  They even have toothpaste and toothbrushes for dogs.

My boyfriend likes the litter box deodorant since he has a very sensitive nose and with six cats we have three litter boxes.  The Bioline cat litter deodorant powder is fragrance free and helps eliminate the urine order by chemically reacting with it and helps extend the life of the litter.

They also offer Keep Off Spray which I wish I would have got before my kitties decided my favorite little leather chair that I loved using as a photo prop was a scratching post.   There's also Keep Off Jelly for people who have dogs.  Do you have a cat or dog or many pets?  Comment below with your types of pets and their names.

Dog Beer & Wine

Dog beer is available in Chicken, Beef, and Calm Ale flavors. The Calm Ale beer has salmon and hemp oil for a calming effect.  This dog beer is made with glucosamine which is a great anti-inflammatory supplement.  Glucosamine is also good for joints and hips.  Bark Brew contains no alcohol, no carbonation and no hops.  So not only is it fun, but also healthy for pets.  Order your dog their very own beer starting at just $5.99!

Not a beer lover?  There's also Dog Wine with fun names such as Dog Pawrignon, FetchMe Grigio, and FetchMe Noir.  There's even a Dog-tini which has added peppermint to give your dog fresh breath.  I love the smell of peppermint and the pretty blue color.  The Dog Pawrignon is a great dog champagne and the perfect prop to add to my doggie birthday party photo shoots.  Dog Pawrignon is a healthy drink that has wild caught Alaskan Salmon oil in it.

Aidan, Ali, and Joy had a fun 4th of July photo shoot with Dog-tini's and dog wine.  I love supporting local USA made products such as the dog beer and cat wine.  The dog beer and cat wine is made in Fort Myers, Florida which is only about three hours from me.

 

Cat Wine

Lots of drinks are available for the kitties too.  My kitties love that their new drinks contain catnip and valerian root.

Picky cats can choose from fun drinks such as Meowsling, Puurgundy, Cat-Tini's, and Meow & Chandon

Cat-tini's are the purr-fect drink for kitties.

Many of the drinks also include salmon oil which is very beneficial for both cats and dogs.  A few of the benefits for salmon oil include inflammation reducer, helps fight heat disease, lowers blood pressure, and lots more.  Salmon oil also helps improve their coat and shin by making them soft and shiny.

Summer tip for cats and dogs

If your cats or dogs are outside in the summer make sure they have plenty of fresh water available.  Drop a few pet wine ice cubes in the water to help cool them down on a hot summer afternoon.  Make sure there is also a shady sheltered spot for them to hide out from the sweltering summer sun.  Both the Cat Wine and Dog Beer can be turned into frozen treats by freezing it in ice cube trays.  I used fun paw print, bone and fish bone shaped ice cube trays to add to the fun.

Silvervine Lumber Cat Toys https://www.astylephotography.com/blog/2017/7/silvervine-lumber-cat-toys My cats just got to play with a whole bunch of new natural cat toys from Natural Toys 4 cat.

7-17NaturalCatToy-2865-35487-17NaturalCatToy-2865-3548Silvervine Lumber Cat Toys product photography by A Style Photography

My six cats really loved playing with their new toys.  Even shy Gidget got into the action.  Her favorite toys are the feathers on the silvervine sticks.  They are also my favorite because I get to play and interact with my cats.

7-17NaturalCatToy-26647-17NaturalCatToy-2664Silvervine Lumber Cat Toys product photography by A Style Photography

The toys are all natural and made with Silvervine.  The scientific name for Silvervine is Actinidia polygama, but please don't ask me how to pronounce that because I all I know is that my cats go crazy for it like catnip.  Silvervine is a climbing vine that grows in the high mountainous regions of Eastern Asia.  It has two cat attractant compounds unlike catnip which only has one, so that's why they love than new toys even more than catnip.  Silvervine also has a sweet-tea like fragrance that cats love.  I know my cats love KitTEA too and I love spoiling them with new toys and treats.

They rolled and cuddled with the silvervine lumber cat toys. They loved the toys so much that they started a cat fight over the toys.

DIY Doggie Bandanas https://www.astylephotography.com/blog/2017/6/diy-paw-print-fun DIY Doggie Bandanas

published in:  www.FreshLifestyleMag.com

For my latest project, I decided to get a little crafty and make some custom dog bandanas featuring paw prints.

6-17HTV-1941-31006-17HTV-1941-3100Product Photography of heat transfer vinyl sheets used to create doggie bandanas.

My first step was ordering some colorful heat transfer vinyl sheets.  I ordered an 18 pack so that I could have lots of colors to choose from.  My favorite color is red.  What's yours?  I am saving the most of the orange sheet to create something with a fox for my sister as a gift.  I also choose a HTV pack that includes glitter vinyl sheets to create sparkly shapes.  This reminds me of a customer who always orders glossy photos because her personality is shiny and sparkly.  It always makes me smile when she mentions glossy.

6-17HTV-12736-17HTV-1273Product Photography of heat transfer vinyl sheets used to create doggie bandanas.

Next I used Photoshop to print the shapes and text by using the custom shape tool.  To make the paw print the correct size to fit on the fabric, I measured the available space on the item.  In Photoshop I used the ruler and guides to help me create the paw print and dog names the correct size.  I teach lessons if you need help using Photoshop just let me know.  I printed the shapes and text on a piece of card stock paper and then cut out the shapes to use as a guide.  I then used shapes as a guide in reverse on the dull side of the heat transfer vinyl sheets. I did this project very DYI and cheap by just using scissors and an xacto knife to cut out the paw prints and text.  For more precise and complicated designs, I would recommend purchasing a cutting machine. 

6-17HTV-17456-17HTV-1745Product Photography of heat transfer vinyl sheets used to create doggie bandanas.

After I cut out my shapes, I used a regular iron to adhere the vinyl to the fabric.  It only needed 10-15 seconds and it's best to just apply constant firm pressure rather than moving the iron around.  It's also a good idea to iron the fabric a little before you apply the vinyl so that you are not applying the shape on top of wrinkles.  Another tip is to use a piece of parchment paper in between the HTV and your iron.  I forgot on the first try and the heat vinyl transfer stuck to the iron.  Oops.  Let the fabric cool after you have ironed the HTV shapes onto it before peeling off the clear protective plastic.

Here's a photo of some custom dog bandanas that I created for one of my nearby neighbor's dogs.

  Aren't they cute!

6-17HTV-1932-31016-17HTV-1932-3101Product Photography of heat transfer vinyl sheets used to create doggie bandanas.

For the doggie bandanas, I just hot glued ribbon to cover up the frying edges of the fabric and make them look prettier.  Another idea is to use pinking shears to cut the edges.  Or if you have a sewing machine you could sew the edges or even make the bandana double sided with two different color or patterned fabrics.  You could even make custom doggie bandanas for all the holidays so your pet can dress up and celebrate too.

This project was really fun and I look forward to creating a bunch of fun gifts for my family and friends with the heat transfer vinyl sheets.  Here's the link if you would like to order some HTV for your own creative project.  http://amzn.to/2tpemxL

Blog for Photographers - Orlando Meet n Greet https://www.astylephotography.com/blog/2017/6/blog-for-photographers---june-2017 Blog for Photographers -  Orlando Meet n Greet

 

Local Florida - Orlando Meet n Greet

I would like to encourage photographers to join events like the Orlando Meet n Greet to meet models and learn from other photographers.  The theme of this event was black and white and most of the images were shot hi-key.

Photo Project Idea - Shoot from Above

Get creative and try different angles.  I stood on a chair to get this shoot from above.

I even re-connected with some models I have photographed in the past at the Orlando Meet n Greet.  Poala and Kirsten are both fun models and very creative with posing.

Photoshop Tips:  How to create a Panoramic college

DSC_9453-3152collegeDSC_9453-3152collegeBlog for Photographers

To create this panoramic college of multiple images, I started with the middle image and then increased my canvas size to fit the other images.  I used the move tool to drag the other images onto the main image and move into place.  I used layer mask to hide some of the extra white around the girls so that they wouldn't overlap the next image.  I had to transform (Ctrl+ T or mac Cmd+T) a few of the images to make them all the same size.  It would have been smarter to shoot on a tripod with the same focal length to make the all images the exact same size for easier combining.  After I had all the images in the right places and did a stamp visible (Ctrl+ALT +Shift+E or mac Cmd+Alt+Shift+E)  to create a merged layer, but kept the other layers underneath in case I needed to go back.  On the merged layer I used the cloning and patch tools to blend the edges in between the images better.
