8-9-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture 2

I went to see the Old 97s (set photos here) and The Devil Makes Three (set photos there) at Lincoln Center Out Of Doors today. During the Old 97s set I took this shot that I think hits the texture mark. A note on technique. I turned the photo black and while and added a little sepia tone in Lightroom.

7-11-14 David H Wells – Photographer

I just finished up a week as a TA for a course taught by David H Wells at ICP called “The Photographic Tools For Travel Photography”. He is a great teacher and photographer with an insane amount of publications, awards, grants etc. over his career. Click on his name above to get a small taste.

The class was both a lecture and practice class. We went out every day to shoot and then critiqued the work the next morning. Here are a few of my shots that made the grade…although we all agreed I was veering dangerously close to street photography and probably crossed the line in several cases…

6-30-14 Pride Parade NYC – A Taste Of Honey

Yesterday was a great day in NYC. The annual Pride parade which brings out people from every borough and walk of life to participate and view.  If you couldn’t make it here is a slide show of a small piece of the parade.

6-12-14 Epilogue For An Eel

I thought about including this yesterday as the ending to my slide show (here) but felt it worked better as an epilogue. I suppose today’s title could have been “The Tale of the Cormorant” but I liked the alliteration.
