Loaded a roll of Kentmere Pan 400 into my AE1 for a quick walkabout and I can say this black and white shootout I’m working is going to be getting harder when it comes down to choosing a favorite film type.
I don’t have many shots of my father, but this one it buy far my favorite of him. He reads the Bible three to fours times a day. I asked after I took this shot if he reads is from front to back, he told me no and that when he sits down to read a passage he just made opens to a random page and reads. I asked him why he did it this way and he said it was because where ever the book to opened too was where he was supposed to be at that time. I myself am more of a agnostic when it comes to belief, but I can’t argue with his logic because I do believe when we do something it was meant to be that way and that time.
Happy Fathers Day Pop!
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.
I have been avoiding Chinatown for a minute because it seems to have become cliche over the last few years, also it has been overrun with tourists on holiday in New York, I don’t have a problem with tourists I just try to avoid them when I’m walking around. Anyway I took a detour and cut thru Chinatown and was reminded why I continue to stay away.
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.
Shot on Cinestill BwXX after scanning I had to bring into Lightroom for a bit dodging and burning to get what I wanted.
I wanted to take a fancy shot for the Liver Bashers social media that was a bit different from the shots we normally post on our Instagram. So I grab a glass from a set Lorenzo Mitil gave me and stacked up some scotch tape to prop up the glass and with a wee bit of Photoshop magic, some color correction in Lightroom Mobile and Bobs your Uncle.
Black and white always seems like it has more to say, I still haven’t figured out what it’s saying though.
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.
I have had the privilege of meeting some truly talented people through the years including this man in the photo who’s face will never be scene and he goes by the name of Vers718 click on his name to see some of his work.
I’m a suckers for framing.
This shot was from February of 2017, NYC Chinatown around 7 am and It was a cold ass day winters day, but watching the city wake up to another day is always a sight to see.
As touristy as it gets at the Oculus this is still probably one of my favorite spots to get shots on a sunny day. The light dances around the follow throughout the day.
For the amount people the trains shuffle back and forth between New York and New Jersey, the Port Authority’s Path Trains are the cleanest modes of transport you can get in the New York area. Also I actually really like the framing of this shot.
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.
Took this shot awhile back on a trek to Long Island City for a pint. Wish I had more the say.
They say patience is a virtue and most of the time I don’t have it with the exception of when I’m waiting for a shot when the light is perfect.
