Mostly photography, but other stuff too

Sitting, waiting….

I shot a fashion show the other night, and as with most things you try to get there early to make sure you have a good angle before all the choice spots are taken. Getting there early also means waiting. So of course I find ways to pass the time by looking for things to shoot. I was luck y to capture this walk through before they opened the doors.

A foggy evening

For a while, I’ve been itching to shoot a footbridge at Brooklyn Bridge Park when at night to capture the lights. But a problem I kept facing is that the bridge as a trailbridge so it’s intentionally made to be flexible, in other words, it bounces when people walk. Cool concept, not so great for long exposures at night. A few weeks ago, it was cold and rainy and completely miserable outside. The kind of night you don’t go outside unless you absolutely have to, so it was the perfect night to capture the lights and skyline without having to try and time in between passers-by.

As I was down there, some serious fog rolled in up the East River. I hurried as quickly as I could before it dissipated and grabbed a couple shots with all it’s eerie effects.
