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.
We were having some fun making the violin levitate for the camera.
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.
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.
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.
It was 3 a.m and I needed a burger that was something from a shit fast food restaurant.
I’m a suckers for framing.
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.
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.
