The Last Snowy Saturday

Lonely in the Subway

Decided to share a few images from this past Saturday.   Hopefully it will be the last snowy Saturday.  Went to Central Park early and then down to Union Square Farmers Market with a friend.  The last image was shot in Midtown before a meeting.

What Is It To Be a Photographer?

Personally, I don’t think owning and taking pictures makes one a photographer.  I will preface my remarks by saying I am old enough now and have been in the commercial photography business long enough now to sound like an “old-timer.”  I can remember when you could actually get an appointment with creatives to show them […]

Through Strange Lenses

Sunset over Cabarete

A couple of months ago I came across the work of Jimmy McIntyre on YouTube.  It was an instructional video on how to apply luminosity masks to images through Photoshop.  It was impressive, but just watching that Youtube video ended up to be just the tip of the iceberg.  He has a great eye for […]

The Cloisters

Busts on an alter at The Cloisters in upper Manhattan.

An actress and I had an idea for a photo shoot.  We wanted a film noir feel to it and were looking for an other-worldly sense of place: something distinct but hard to place.  I thought of The Cloisters in upper Manhattan because unless you know of it you would not know it is in […]

2 Images of Elizabeth Street Garden

Diptych, Elizabeth Street Garden, Little Italy, New York

Two images taken at the Elizabeth Street Garden, a community space maintained by volunteers that provide a place to unwind and relax from the stress and strain of urban living.  The garden is filled with architectural and garden artifacts, antiques, or junk – depending on your mindset.   I especially like this two vignettes.  

Kara Walker Installation at Domino Sugar Factory

A friend of mine who was visiting from Los Angeles suggested we go see the Kara Walker installation at the old Domino Sugar Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Saturday.  It was a great suggestion.  First of all, the weather was ideal, so waiting in the very long line to get into the exhibit was much […]

Sunrise Over Lake Jackson, Florida

I found myself in central Florida last week for a couple of days.  I was staying at a motel (I love motels) on Lake Jackson in Sebring, home of the Sebring International Raceway.  I woke up early so I thought I would see if I could find a place to shoot the sunrise.  This is […]

Chinatown Pedestrian

I was walking around a bit in Chinatown yesterday morning seeing what promising light and environments were around that may yield interesting images for my “Vague Recollections” series.  I was intrigued by a white wall lit directly by the already bright morning light at 9am.  I liked the bit of graffiti that was on the […]

iPhoneArt Gallery – WayneGreer – Goodbye to May

I am slowly – and at first very reluctantly – finding my way into the world of  photography apps for my iPhone that do some wonderful effects.  This first happened when I read an article somebody had posted on Linked In.  From there I have been exploring for the past couple of days.  There is […]

Open Door Series

This is one of the images I have submitted for a juried exhibition next week.  It is also part of a workshop I will be attending this weekend, the Open Door Series, sponsored by the Soho Gallery for Digital Art.  It’s being taught by Brainard Carey, author of “Making it in the Art World” and […]
