“Seeing Sound” by Tari Beroszi

January 28, 2010

Tari Beroszi’s large-scale abstract photography panels will open Thursday, February 4 from 6-9pm at Snapdragon Photography/Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in TULA Arts Center.  Beroszi’s work, “Seeing Sound”, is an exploration of music and image.  She uses photography as a tool to translate the language of music into abstract images, resulting in a poetic and conceptual representation of a non-visual language.  Her photographs are the abstract equivalents of what she feels and what she sees from within when listening to music.


It’s Raining Babies!

January 25, 2010

I’m not sure what was in the air nine months ago, but I have had a ton of newborn photo shoots in the last couple of weeks!  Newborn shoots are so much fun, I don’t even know where to begin.  I recommend trying to bring the baby in at about two weeks old.  There are several reasons for this – they haven’t plumped up yet, they tend to be relatively amenable to whatever we are trying to do, and it’s before the baby acne comes.  But mostly, I just love to hold them when they are so little!

I usually leave at least two hours for the shoot, because the baby will most likely need to eat, may nap a bit, mom and I need to conference about tips and tricks on eating and sleeping. . . It’s fun.  For me at least.  It can be a little stressful for parents, especially if this is their first baby, so not rushing is important.

I recommend bringing both black and white clothing for the parents.  And after every parent in the last couple of weeks has gotten pooped on, I’m going to start recommending back-ups too!  I have all kinds of blankets and hats, but if there’s something special to the baby or the family, they should bring those as well.

So check these newbies out!
