How to always look great in pictures

When it comes to being photographed a lot of us tend to freeze up, or go in for that fake, cheesy smile. But you’d be happy to know that you don’t need to be born photogenic in order to look nice in photos. Just follow these 10 simple tips to ensure that you always look good in front of the camera. 1.) Dress to impress If you know that a photo opportunity will present itself at an event (which it always does), dress nicely.

Photojournalism vs Traditional Photography…Which is right for you?

There is a much confusion surrounding the different styles of wedding photography that professionals are shooting today. Most people want the style and glamour that they see in magazines. They often don’t know exactly what that style is called and how a skilled photographer can make them look as good as the images in the latest trend-setting celebrity magazine. Others are looking for a more traditional style of photography. These are the two most common types of photography; traditional and photojournalistic. While similar equipment is used...

Five tips for beach photography

Let me preface these tips by saying I absolutely ADORE shooting at the beach.  I love the backdrop, the sand, the skies, the piers, the lifeguard towers, etc.  But I didn’t always love it and it used to make me VERY nervous.  After doing many upon many shoots there, I thought I’d share some tips that have helped me immensely in getting the results I want with beach pictures. 1. Timing is EVERYTHING.  Best time to shoot at the beach in the hour or two before sunset. The lighting at this time is gorgeous and you don’t have to fight that harsh...

Couture for a Cause

Couture for a Cause

We sponsored an amazing event last month! Modi was funny at the late after party for the Couture For a Cause group at Temple Israel in Lawrence on Tuesday evening. The comedian was a last minute replacement for Joan Rivers who had to cancel due to the death of her sister and the funeral that took place that very afternoon in Philadelphia. Jut 24-hours prior the organizers—Esther Silber-Berg, Sharon Langert and Michal Weinstein—were jolted with the news that Ms. Rivers will not be able to attend the function that was built entirely around her...

How to look thinner in pictures

Why is it that celebrities always look skinny in red carpet photos? I live in NYC’s West Village and I can vouch that your average celebrity Ain’t All That. She tends to be short and bobbleheaded with proper child-bearing hips just like you and me (except for Giselle Bundchen and Sienna Miller, the skinny little…).

(That, and the fact that they starve themselves a week...

A Bar/Bat Mitzvah to Remember

  The joy of a lifetime   “This won’t be just another party,” we tell ourselves. We spend time and money to make sure the Bar/Bat Mitzvah we are hosting will be an event that stands apart from the other 40 Simchas being celebrated that week.   But perhaps the greatest challenge is to make the day unforgettable not for the guests but for the real center of attention – the Bat Mitzvah girl or Bar Mitzvah boy. For many, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience determines their attitude to Judaism. If the event is shallow and pretentious,...
