Sometimes you just need to sit, smoke a cigarette and check your social media.
For a ugly building the Oculus has a beautiful way of shaping the light.
Was out and about with Mr. Lorenzo Mitil yesterday and ended up north of Houston Street which I never do because I’m my opinion it is boring and there is nothing to photograph and I might have wee bit wrong, but I will still stand behind my original opinion.
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.
This is a very old shot I took while I was on a smoke break from work when I was on a light trail kick.
Shot from a Friday morning walkabout with Lorenzo Mitil who was out shooting some Cinestill BwXX around the Financial District in Lower Manhattan. Side note check out the Oculus during the morning rush hour, it’s like watching an episode of Planet Earth the only thing missing is Sir David Attenborough narrating.
Morning rush in the Financial District. For the Juice.
I first saw a few images that were shot using Cinestill BwXX and wanted to get a roll or two to test out. I looked for it at B & H Photo Video and saw it was on back order which had it for the best price so when they did get back in stock I order two rolls, also I did see it on Amazon but for double the price of all the stores that did carry it. The first roll I just started shooting around the city in the Financial District because you can get harsh light and dark shadows you can get and shot the second roll down in Philadelphia where I did get some decent shots. If your like me and only shoot black and white when using film you will love images you get from it, believe me even the really shit images I took have me looking them over twice just because of the feel the film gives them.
This is a composite on two shots of East Broadway in Chinatown in Manhattan. Everyone takes this shot when they walk across the Manhattan Bridge and if you’re lucky you will be able to get the shot in January and you will see the decorations for Chinese New Year, but in my opinion it really is a boring shot aside from just taking for your personal collection.
Hit 60 degrees last week and the city came back to life.
Sunny days are great, but I will take gloomy and foggy everyday of week if I could.
