Portrait Photography

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.

Camera : Canon 5D Mark III

Lens : Canon 70-200 F4 non-is

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.  

Happy Fathers Day Pop!

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.

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.

Friday Morning Walkabout

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.

Jesus just chilling in Philly

Walking around New York City you will see some very “interesting” things, but the city of Philadelphia is a very close second with the amount of “interesting” things you will see.

Street Portraits

I went out with Alex for a walkabout around lower Manhattan to get some street portraits . While we were walking around the Financial District in Lower Manhattan near the corner of Pearl and Hanover Square I saw the perfect light for what I was looking to get and the light pole he was leaning on was just and added bonus to get to him to pose for the camera.
