11502111614 2889863281 z BK Live year end wrap at BRIC

Here's the wrap party we had at Brooklyn Independent Media's BK Live show where I'm working as a camera operator. One of the greatest group of people I've had the honor and pleasure to work with.

I shot all of these with the Fuji x20 which is just great for events like this. Click on for the full gallery.

Is the future of cameras based in the past?

wpid Photo Nov 6 2013 740 AM Is the future of cameras based in the past?
PhotoShelter’s
“The future uses technology and design to free us from analog constraints. The future is optimistic, and the utopian future makes us want to catch glimpses of the next future — not peer backwards and yearn for the past.”

I both agree and disagree with Allen.  (more…)

Thomas Witte: “Cutting Shadows” – Grand Central Centennial Papercut Show.

A short video I put together for Thomas Witte and the talk we’re doing at the Mid-Manhattan Library branch today at 6pm. If you’re in the neighborhood, come by and say hi. Here’s the link to the event.

Suspect Package at Local Firehouse

9603895474 bd901c4a93 z Suspect Package at Local Firehouse

Some interesting news in the neighborhood today. Someone leaned a brand new attaché case against the firehouse on Cortelyou Road and got he whole area in a tizzy. Bomb squads, helicopters, Emergency Services. The whole nine yards. Anyway, here are some shots of the brave folks who determined that it wasn't a bomb but just a harmless case left by some idiot.

A Trip to the Museum: Photographing Other People’s Art

9527175582 245c247a65 z A Trip to the Museum: Photographing Other Peoples Art
Ever since I took a trip to the Pergamon Museum in Berlin (just after the wall fell), I've fallen in love with Greek and Roman sculpture. There's just something about the style, the poses, the expressions which I am completely attracted to. (more…)

I now have an image on permanent display in a museum!

7119613611 32975f6eb8 c I now have an image on permanent display in a museum!

This image is now part of the permanent collection of the Intrepid Air & Space Museum. Because the space shuttle Enterprise is now on display at that museum, they wanted an image of it flying past the Statue of Liberty. A quick search through Flickr and the museum people found this image of mine (one of the reasons I maintain a heavy Flickr presence). I shot it when the Enterprise was being delivered to NYC to its new home.

New #Hipstamatic Film Pack Is Really Nice.

wpid Photo Jul 19 2013 732 PM New #Hipstamatic Film Pack Is Really Nice.

Hipstamatic came out with a few new film/lens packs last week and this one I like particularly. In the right light it has a nice feel; some warmth and the defocused edges are nice. This is a shot of two of my neighbors and friends, Chris and Manisha.

 

A Times Square Burlesque Frolic: just like the good old days.

9150099945 9a771a1dd8 z A Times Square Burlesque Frolic: just like the good old days.

A couple of Fridays ago, we took the whole Switch to Manual crew out to Times Square for a little burlesque frolic. Here's a gallery of what we did with Cheeky Lane (on the right in the above image) and Angelique A'Lamode (Ms. Metrocard). We're planning to set up more special events like this in the near future. Should you want to join us, email us (switchtomanual (at) gmail (dot) com) and we'll let you know when the next Times Square night shoot is happening. Until then, enjoy the pix; mine mixed with Tom's. Click on for more.

Now Entering The Red Zone #StreetPhotography

8929578215 0ed92054e1 z Now Entering The Red Zone #StreetPhotography

Sometimes I like to hang out in one spot and shoot whatever comes along. Yesterday, at Macy's on 34th street, they put up these huge red walls to cover up the renovations they're doing there. It was the middle of the day and the light was not great but the color of the wall was overwhelming. I thought I'd just hang there for a little while and see who passed by. I didn't have my big camera, just my iPhone, which was probably an advantage in this saturation. Click on to continue the series from the red wall.

Encounter in Times Square

wpid Photo May 29 2013 807 PM Encounter in Times Square

He rolled up to us and beckoned us to take his picture. I did. Then he made scraping motions with his fingers. I asked if he wanted something. More scraping motions. “Oh, you want money?” “Redzunjutionif” he said. I gave him a buck. He bicycled on. The end.

 

Another round of shots from Green-Wood cemetery

wpid Photo May 25 2013 236 PM Another round of shots from Green Wood cemetery

Went for another stroll in the rain today in Green-Wood Cemetery armed with only my iPhone and Panasonic Lumix LX-5. I haven't processed the Panasonic shots yet, but these are fresh off my iPad. I usually transfer the shots I did on the iPhone over to the iPad because they are a little easier to process using the larger screen. Anyway, it was a perfect day to shoot in the cemetery. Rainy, and very windy. So windy that I was worried about tree branches falling down. Click on for more shots.

Video Profile of Photographer Jean Miele’s “Vestiges of Industry” Series

I just finished editing this the other day. It’s really a “trailer” for a longer video, but it stands pretty well on its own and really covers what Jean is doing with his series called “Vestiges of Industry.” What this video is really part of is a new production company that Jean and I and our friend Kristin are putting together. Jean describes it the best (from his blog): (more…)

Take one. Take two. Take three. Take four! Flash cube!

 

Who remembers using these?
