Makeshift Studio

With a make shift studio and some budget continuous lighting you can pull off something pretty decent. These were the first set of shots I took for Giancarlo Arcieri after watching build this violin from the start to finish which in itself was a great experience to watch and getting the document it made it all that much better.

Happy Fathers Day

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.

Lunch Break

Sometimes you just need to sit, smoke a cigarette and check your social media.

Beertography

This Canon is getting close to retirement and the decision on the next camera to replace it hasn’t been the easiest to make, switching when you have built up a few lenses and you know the camera in and out is hard especially when you aren’t someone who has money to burn, but when need to upgrade to keep up with the times, you need to make sure what you get is going to be able to cover all aspects of what you doing and I’m one of the people who believe gear doesn’t matter and this is truer then anything, but the clients you might deal with don’t believe it and it’s cheaper in the long run to get what will eventually make you the most on a return for your investment. With all the being said I’m partial to shooting some video every now and then and the Sony A7R III is looking pretty good right now.

Brooklyn Bridge

Shot on Cinestill BwXX after scanning I had to bring into Lightroom for a bit dodging and burning to get what I wanted.

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.

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.

Walkabout

When I’m walking around the city I’m not looking for anything in particular to photograph. I might shoot something like the shot here in the LES skatepark under the Manhattan Bridge or I might have my tripod setup hunting light trails, but I will Most likely  be sitting in a bar taking a shot of a beer for another site I run because beer is delicious for those of you who are of age to enjoy it. Please forgive the shit grammar, I’m learning to write better but with old age comes a stubbornness that doesn’t want to learn new things.
