Congregation Tikvat Jacob Beth Torah Bar Mitzvah

CTJ Bar Mitzvah Manhattan Beach

Our Bar Mitzvah subject, in the rabbi’s study at Congregation Tikvat Jacob Beth Torah in Manhattan Beach. He’s wearing his beautiful, hand-woven talit, handed down from generation to generation from his grandmother.

We did a little Photoshop magic for black and white to heighten the drama, and emphasize the colors of the talit.

The photograph was captured in natural light, on the Sony A7S camera, with the Zeiss 55mm 1.8 lens.

The A7S is a favorite addition to our camera bag, as it has a “silent” shutter, which means exactly that–the Rabbi doesn’t hear the camera snapping away while he or she is leading a service or rehearsal.

Graham and Graham Photography has been photographing Bar/Bat Mitzvahs at CTJ since 2003. Call or write so we can help you with your event.
