A Personal Note

April 26, 2020  •  2 Comments

A Personal Note.

Thinking about all of you who we have worked with during the last 23 years and hoping all of you are well and staying safe during this coronavirus pandemic.  When we stay in touch and watch out for each other, we can always weather trying times like these.

You may have noticed that we have been on hiatus since January.  Babe spent that time preparing for, undergoing and recovering from hip replacement surgery.  Bone-on-bone pre-op physical therapy sessions were difficult but paid off by coming out of the surgery with strong muscles to support his new hip.  So it was during that time that our studio took a time out.

Then along came a pandemic which none of us in our lifetime ever experienced.  Realizing how important it is to comply with recommendations to halt the spread of the coronavirus, we have postponed all portrait sessions.  It would be difficult to maintain a six foot distance and still capture the images as requested and maintain our high standards.

We appreciate and thank you for your continued support through the years and especially now during these challenging times.

Wishing you well and stay safe.
Babe & Arlene

 


Upper Gooseberry Falls

Upper Gooseberry Falls

Upper Gooseberry Falls
Is that mud you ask?  No mud here…it’s peat…brown water draining out of the peat bog swamps.  Just Mother Nature’s way of painting the falls.
 
Located in the Gooseberry Falls Park, the Upper Gooseberry Falls is the gateway to the North Shore of Lake Superior.  The Gooseberry River was named after a French explorer Sieur des Gros-Eilliers or Anishinabe Indian name Shab-On-Im-I-Kan-I-Sibi…both translated to “gooseberries”.
 
Captured with a 4x5 camera the slow shutter speed turned the water in the falls a silky smooth.

Add Upper Gooseberry Falls to your home or office decor.
Available framed, unframed, museum back or canvas gallery wrap.

360º Spin Imagery

What is 360º Spin Photography?
360º Spin Photography technique captures a series of individual product images allowing rotation of the image revealing details on all sides of the product.

Software is used to compose these individual images into an interactive 360º display that supports drag/swipe to turn the object to the left/right. This causes the visual appearance of a fluidly rotating object.
 
Babe’s Photos 360º spin photography…
Offers 12, 24, 36, 48 and 72 image captures to produce various degrees of fluidity.

Rock Waterfall

Rock Waterfall

How do these rocks tumble into just the right balanced position?  Randomly stacked rocks polished by clear flowing water along the East Verde River form small waterfalls as captured in Rock Waterfall.
 
Houston Mesa Road takes you there, leading deep into prime Rim country as it crosses the East Verde River four times.  For 10 miles Houston Mesa Road stretches through the forested northern section of the Tonto National Forest, the fifth largest forest in the United States, just one mile north of Payson, Arizona.
 
Rock Waterfall was photographed using an Arca Swiss 4’x5’ view camera with a Fuji 210mm lens at f45 with a long exposure of one second on Kodak Ektachrome film giving the water a smooth, silky appearance.

This majestic Rock Waterfall will present beautifully as a large print in a high profile space in your home or office.
Available framed, unframed, museum back or canvas gallery wrap.

National Dog Day 2019

National Dog Day - 2019!

To all furry friends out there…National Dog Day is August 26!
 
Listen up!  Tell your Mom & Pop about Babe’s Photos where they love making portraits of us.
 
Let me tell you about it.
 
When we arrived at Babe’s Photos, I was greeted at the door and given free reign inside and out to sniff to my heart’s content.  No leash and no collar…I was free for sure!
 
Look for the blue bowl of water and all the toys.  My favorite toy was the football…sure trained Babe fast to throw it my way.  If you are not a football guy or gal just sit on the floor with Babe and Arlene and pick another.
 
Oh yes, don’t forget you are there for your portrait so check out the camera room where you will find a comfy rug setup just for you.  If the camera room looks scary with all those lights, not to worry…Arlene will look you straight in the eye and tell you funny stories…not to mention how much Babe & Arlene make you laugh when they go crazy knocking on walls, singing, throwing toys in the air.  They got it…my attention that is.  If all else fails, out come Henrietta and Elvis…with their squeaks my attention was front and center.
 
Now time for those pictures.  You know, Babe and Arlene learned my language so it was easy to understand them.  Have to say though…my Mom & Pop helped by bringing my favorite treats.  Pose…treats…pose…treats...great drill!
 
Before I knew it, it was a wrap until we met again to preview my great shots, if I don’t say so myself.  Dropped many hints to Mom & Pop but left it up to them to pick the best shot and best place to display my portrait at home…installed by Babe and Arlene.  Now when I’m lounging on the couch I look up and there it is…my portrait on the wall with the rest of my family.  How cool is that?
 
Tell your Mom & Pop to make an appointment with Babe’s Photos.  You will have the time of your life! 

Contact Arlene...she will handle it from there!

Bougainvillea Flowers

Bougainvillea Flowers

Bougainvillea Flowers
Don’t let it fool you.  Those vibrantly colored “flowers” adorning the tips of Bougainvillea branches are actually modified leaves or bracts.  Look more closely…the true Bougainvillea flower will be revealed in the midst of those colorful bracts.
 
Surrounded by three or six bracts, the tiny, white, trumpet-shaped flowers triangularly arranged in groups of three stand out from the pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white or yellow bract colors.  Two of these three flowers usually open at the same time, with the third opening later.

Large or small Bougainvillea Flowers can add a delicate touch to your home or office decor.
Available framed, unframed, museum back or canvas gallery wrap.
Other images can be seen at www.BabesPhotos.com/scenics
