  4. Eating Greens – Some classic vegetables are making their way back to the table this Turkey Day. Green beans and Brussels are re-emerging as household favorites.

Hope Shines: Light The Night Walk

Hope Shines Light The Night Walk

Hope Shines: Light The Night Walk

Hope Shines for lives touched by cancer. The Albuquerque community comes together to take part in the Light The Night Walk. This year’s walk takes place on Saturday, November 4th at the Civic Plaza. Albuquerque ShutterBooth joins Albuquerque in the fight against cancer! 

What Is Light The Night?

Light The Night is headed by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Their mission: to bring hope.  When people hear the word cancer, they lose hope. Light the Night works to restore the hope.  They host a series of fundraising events to help fund research and find a cure!  In addition, Light The Night celebrates life. They do this by honoring the lives of those who are battling cancer as well as those who lost the fight. 

Most importantly, a little rain won’t dampen their spirits. This event happens come rain or shine and acts as a true symbol of hope where it’s needed most, in the darkness.

Hope Shines

Albuquerque Lights The Night

The people of Albuquerque unite in a little over a mile walk for cancer this November raising $110,000. Light The Night commences at 6 p.m., following a  heartwarming ceremony at 4.  The walk continues on through the night until roughly 8 p.m., painting the sunset with a soft glow that carries on into the night. Albuquerque glows with red, white, and gold lights. The red lanterns held by supporters, white by cancer survivors themselves, and the gold by those walking in memory of loved ones.

Halloween Photo Fun: Fangtastic Halloween Pics

October is a great month to capture the beauty Autumn offers.  Not to mention it’s a spooktacular time to take some screaming good photos! Get ready for some Halloween Photo Fun. Take some of the most horrifyingly awesome Halloween pictures with these fangtastic Halloween Photography Tips

Taking Great Halloween Photos

Taking Great Halloween Photos takes a lot more than a smile and a click. With these Tips for Better Halloween Photosyou’re sure to raise more than a few hairs this Halloween! 

  1. Avoid the obvious, distracting, or apparent. – Make sure that you’re in a setting where the subject is the focal point of the picture. Otherwise, something as simple as a well-lit jack-o-lantern to a ghostly spook, or ghoul can become lost in the presence of candy, spooks, and doors. Make sure your ghosts, pumpkins, witches, and ghouls are more noteworthy than cobwebs.
  2. Get your freak on. – Halloween makes for one of the best opportunities to strike a pose. There’s nothing quite so ghoulish as a frightful specter in all their splendor. Catch witches on their brooms or stirring boiling cauldrons! Flash some light on vampires as they grab a bite! Don’t forget the werewolves out for a midnight howl!
  3. Don’t be afraid of the dark. – Shoot in low light for some eerie scenes and make their skin crawl!

Fall Photo Magic: Autumn Inspiration

Autumn Inspiration

Fall Photo Magic: Autumn Inspiration

Fall marks the end of summer, the beginning of school, shorter days, and colder nights. It’s also a season that motivates with some Autumn Inspiration. Fall is a colorful season filled with some photogenic hues of red, brown, gold, purple, and orange. As the bright greens and pastels of Spring fade away, the cold autumn days gives these colors a chance to shine.

Autumn Inspiration

Fall Leaves

Green while it’s a vibrant color, steals our attention and focus during the warmer seasons. As the days grow colder and shorter, the hues that Spring and Summer deny us come alive. The first hints of bright orange leaves set a festive scene for fall colors and festivities. Those bright fall colors make for some amazing fall photos!

Majestic Evergreens

Fall brings with it the first hints of the bitter cold of winter. With the crisp, chilly weather we watch the spring and summer flowers die. Need not despair though, evergreens remain. Their beauty is great for fall and winter photo ops.

Autumn Inspiration

Migration

Birds fly in numbers, migrating to warmer areas for the cold months. Their roosting or flight are ideal for some breathtaking photographs.

Harvest

October and November are notorious for harvests. Fall harvests, the vibrant hues, and fresh crop make for some great photos! They can also make for wonderful backdrops for your Halloween photo shoots!

Fall Beauty

Autumn is but another beautiful season. It’s merely a matter of perspective and perhaps knowing where to look. Here are some more fabulous photo inspiration ideas for fall!

School Pictures: Photo Rules

School Picture Day Photo Rules

School Picture Day Photo Rules

Going back to those good old fashioned rule days, one complicated day to prepare for is picture day. How do you dress for school pictures? What are some good photo rules to know when dressing for school pictures? Albuquerque Shutterbooth has awesome school picture day photo rules.  From the question of what are The Best Colors To Wear to the What Is Good To Wearwe have some photo advice that will help make picture day less tedious.

Plaided Polka Dots

Loud patterns, while expressive can add some unwanted noise to your photos. These bold patterns can draw attention away from smiling faces. So when considering what to wear for picture day, it is advisable you do not wear your favorite plaid shirt or polka dot skirt.

Black Or White?

White is classic and no doubt, classy. But, it has its down side. White absorbs light. It is for this reason that black tends to be the better choice as it is flatter. Though gray or charcoal are also acceptable choices.

Brights Or Pastels?

Pastels, although light and attractive will be a total washout in your school photos. This is why bright colors of hot pink, cobalt blue, and tangerine make for a better photo op. They pop in pictures. Not to mention, they bring out your face!

Graphic Tees, Shorts, Pants, and Skirts

Hello Kitty, emojis, to favorite heroes and cartoon characters are a bit too loud to wear for picture day.  Popular as they might be, they are more likely to steal the photo op than to add to it.

More Picturesque Advice 

Still worried about your student’s photo results? Here are some Ways To Avoid Dressing For A Phototastic Picture Day to ensure some great school photos!

Sunny Day Photography Tips

Sunny Day Photography Tips

Sunny Day Photography Tips

Summer vacation is a great time to make memories, and the one thing no one wants is a picture perfect moment with a glare. Sunlight can also be the guilty party when it comes to shadowed heads, and closed or squinted eyes. Here are five Sunny Day Photography Tips that will make Shooting On Bright Sunny Days breeze!

1. Chill Out

Take the frown off your face and do away with dark shadows by chillin’ in a cool spot for your summer photo shoot. Be sure to let a little light in. Umbrellas make for a fun prop and can be a great way to beat the heat!

2. Reflect

Reflectors come in handy when you need to bring in a little illumination.  A white light or surface can also do the trick as they are excellent ways to help you achieve the perfect lighting.

3. Fill-A-Flish Flash

The is harshest when at its peak, with that same dazzling brilliance comes the darkest shadows. A Fill Flash can fix all that as it casts light on those shadowed areas. Not to mention, it adds a luster to the eyes.  So, it makes those baby blues, warm browns, memorizing greens, and bedazzling hazels sparkle!

4. Overexposure

Sunscreen protects your skin preventing blistering sunburns, two simple changes to your camera do the same for your pictures. Protect your shots from being overexposed by increasing the shutter speed or decreasing the aperture.

5. Nature

Finally, be sure to capture the natural beauty around you. While there is something magical about capturing smiles on film, there is nothing more breathtaking than open fields, flora, or rushing water.  There is also no better time to work on a photo bucket list!

Trouble Shooting Portraits In Bright Sunshine will be a thing of the past!

What Is Bullet Time Photography? 

Do you want to live it up? Do you want to feel like you are being featured in an epic motion picture film? Bullet Time, otherwise known as Camera Array enables photographers to take gravity-defying shots looking like something right out of The Matrix.

Camera Array photography takes more than one lens. In fact, it requires the use of several cameras taking a perfectly timed shot. The experience may probably sound like another motion picture, Mission Impossible, but it is not only possible these photos appear to stop time altogether. So you can also find yourself being captured from all angles adding to the magic of the effect!
