Day 34 of 365: Technicolor Fashion Mural

5 02 2010

Needed to take a break from the NYC HDR images, so I started scheduling some model shoots again. NYC model, make-up artists, fire dancer, belly dancer and event producer, Massae, helps me kick off a new series – Fashion Murals. We are going to shoot a series of fashion shoots with NYC murals as the backgrounds.

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…

Day 28 of 365: The Cheapest Underwater Model With Style

30 01 2010

Today’s image is from a very quick test shoot in a new pool for an upcoming assignment. The pool is clean, the model was cheap, and the vibe was right.

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.
