PDN 2012

Another great year at the Photoplus Expo at the Javit Center.

As always, lots of cool photo stuff.

...like this ice camera sculpture with real cameras frozen in it.
...and yes, the cameras will work after they're defrosted.

Saving energy?

You'd think there'd be a lot less lighting at a Con Ed conference on energy efficiency.

Berries n' chips

Went for a bike ride on what could've been one of the last great weather weekends for a while (hopefully not), while scouting places and looking for inspiration to no avail.

However, when I got back, Onion and Garlic chips and Strawberries saved the day. :)
No... I didn't eat them together.

Glamour headshots today!

I don't normally post when I have glamour headshots, as it's pretty much a semi-regular thing for me.

However, I'm always a bit excited to meet new talent (MUAs, hairstylists, models, etc.).
...AND, it's a good reason to clean the place up :)

Happy shooting!

...but who was watching who?

OLD and NEW




It was the Adorama 2nd Annual Street fair on June 10th.
Lots of cool stuff for your average camera nerd.

When I decided to shoot a couple images in B&W, I selected a Picture Style I had forgotten I customized.

Aside from the sepia like tone giving it that classic feel, I thought it was cool to see old styles with new elements.

Exempli gratia (e.i) That guy with the old Polaroid on a cell phone... and the old Circus guy on stilts with the Adorama logo in the back.

:)

Poor little guy?


I saw this fellow just crawling around in Central Park in the middle of a walkway.

It's understandable why a group of onlookers decided to pick him up and place him closer to "home".
...but what if he was trying to get somewhere?

You never know.

Tree of knowledge


It was a cold, gray, wet day at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

Probably the best time to go.

Since there was barely anyone around, it was like we had the place all to ourselves.

It was so quiet, that when I was in the men's room, I heard her flush in the ladies room. :)

I shot me shooting me.


That's me.

Why did I choose this pic to start my blog with?
Well, maybe it'll give you an idea of the type of photog I am.
I like quality work and like having fun with it too.

Stay tuned!
