South Africa Serendipity

Took a day off of diving to explore the area around Mbotyi. The views are pretty spectacular. I saw this image in my mind the moment we drove past it.

Day 39 of 365: When In Doubt, Shoot a Church

10 02 2010

Had no time to shoot today, starting to get desperate to keep the 365 project going. Can’t go wrong shooting a church. So I decided to play around with the high ISO on the D3s. – I found a dark church to shoot to challenge myself. For the geeks like me who care, this is ISO 25,600. The image came out very two dimensional to me, but hey, it’s an image for today and saves me from not fulfilling the project today…

Day 32 of 365: Bar Scene

3 02 2010

Potential images are all around us. As I was sitting across the bar enjoying a cocktail and some good company before the New York Underwater Photographic Society meeting at Arctica Bar, the colors and warmth of this NYC bar scene called upon me. Tripod deployed mid-drink, 5 shot HDR exposure, in the can.

Day 30 of 365: One Month Done!

1 02 2010

I made it to one month. Thanks to everyone who has supported this project so far. Your support is the encouragement I need. Now if I can only invent a few extra hours everyday! This first month has set the stage for a couple of themes for the remainder of the project. Most notably – nighttime HDR in NYC! This shot is very random, as I had to force myself to get a shot for today. So one month down, eleven to go! Stay tuned…

Continuing on my photographic journey of unique NYC images, the Dream Hotel under a blue moon, doused in blue lights, on a night when I was singing the blues…

Day 26 of 365: Two Icons, Ten Exposures

27 01 2010

Today I’m posting two images. Obviously both HDR, but very different vibes. I set out to shoot a unique image of the Chrysler building. It’s probably my favorite icon in the NYC skyline. The top image is my favorite from the shoot, but it had a very similar vibe to yesterday’s image, so I included a second shot just to mix it up a bit. The bottom image was actually shot about one hour or so prior, just during sunset. It’s also in the spirit of Obama’s State of The Union address tonight.

I’m really getting into the NYC images. I’ll try and mix it up, but it is my go-to when I don’t have time to prepare for something conceptual or fashion related. NYC is a big place with a million image possibilities, and I’m getting some great feedback, so I guess I can’t go wrong with it.
