Portrait Time

I realize I need to be shooting portraits more consistently to figure out my style, I would like to shot more creative portraits in the style of Sails Chong or Lindsey Adler.

I want out early this week with some coworkers to get their portraits using the natural light available before I brought out my flash.

If you happen to be reading post give and you’re interested in getting some portraits done shot me a message. I still agree with most photographers that gear doesn’t matter and you can make it work with what you have, but I need to upgrade my portrait lens if I’m going to make this a viable source of income.

Single Light Portrait

Was working all day and needed to get out and shoot something so I took my friends younger brother Alex out to test out a new my Westcott 26 inch Rapid Box for my Canon 430EX II Speedlite that I picked up at B & H Photo Video. I have been trying to get more and more in portrait work, but it’s been hard finding people to work with, so if you are reading this drop me a line if you’re interested in getting in front of my lens. I still need a lot of practice using lighting, but for first outdoor using one light I personally think it came out pretty decent. Canon give me a chance on your Explores of Light Team I can guarantee I will not disappoint if I had the chance.

Portraiture

As much as I enjoy street photography portrait photography is something I really want to do, but it’s hard to find people who want their pictures taken. This is my friend Jessica aka Tiny Satan aka the woman behind Created and Reincarnated and what’s she lacks in height she makes up for with a vivid imagination.

Drunken Scooters

They have brought these shit Lime scooters to Hoboken and I will be waiting to hear the first  story of a drunk bastard walking out of one of the bars by the path station, getting on one and either crashing into a parked car, a group of people or mostly likely getting railed by a car and I hope the latter doesn’t happen, but I have seen pretty strange things happen in the mile square.

Testing Something Out

I took this panorama on my walk home from work this morning and I been wanting to test out shooting only with my Canon 5d Mark III and 70-200mm F4 to see if it changes my recent view on photography that it has gotten very boring of late and I feel like I have been losing more interest with every new day, hopefully I can come out of this funk soon. Pardon my terrible writing I just a humble moron.

Created & Reincarnated

I do make fun of my friend Jessica and call her flower art hipster shit I do have to admit it is very creative. While we were getting shots of them people did keep stoping her to tell her much they liked them so she might be on to something here regardless of smartass opinion. Anyway give her a follow over at Created & Reincarnated and it you are interested is purchasing her art you can find it over on Etsy. Remember Mothers Day is this weekend and it would make a nice gift. Happy Mothers Day to all the good moms out there!

What I do before and while I'm at work

Some shots from a small shoot I did last week with All I Can Be Is ME. I like the the way the color edits came out, but the black and white edits speak so much more.

Life in a big city

Living in or around a big city like New York City even for a short amount of time is something that everyone should experience for the only fact that you will learn more about yourself in a big city then you will anyway else. I can’t really explain what I mean, but it can and will change your views real quick.
