Not Much To Say

My blog writing is probably like many people who attempt it:  sporadic and uninspired.  Part of it is my Midwest upbringing – I don’t like to toot my own horn and deep down in my soul it feels a bit too self-indulgent.  But I do like to use it to share images that I have […]

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 […]

Young Man in Union Square

I took my camera with me as I ran out the door in a hurry last Saturday.  I decided at a spur of the moment to leave my apartment early so that I could take advantage of the sunny weather and spend time shooting in and around Union Square Park.  When I got there and […]

2 Women at a Bus Stop

This scene caught my eye immediately.  The simplicity of it with a minimal number of elements and a basic composition.  The green really pops but doesn’t overwhelm the photograph, I think because of the weight of the shadow.  

Columbus Circle Crosswalk

This image was shot from the third floor looking down at a crosswalk.  I composed it so that a loop is visually implied that is cut off by the right edge of the frame, but one’s mind connects the dots, so to speak, and closes the loop.  I overexposed this in the camera to get […]

Waiting In Line

This is one of the subway stations I pass on the train almost daily on my way into Manhattan.  I had not been into it because until recently I had no reason to.  I was immediately struck by the light that comes through the windows and colored glass of a 3 story atrium.  I took […]

Times Square at 42nd St.

I am trying to find areas in NYC that may have potential to create imagery for my Second Impressions body of work that I am currently working on.  I think Times Square is one of those places because of the crowds, the lights, and the colors.  I will go back quite a few times to […]

MoMA Lobby 2

This is one of the few images so far in the “Visual Whispers” series that I have not cropped.  This is because I typically have not been able to fully anticipate how the image will look once I have a chance to see an enlarged image closer to what it will look like as a […]

Girl With Hoodie

I’m obsessed with rendering scenes out of focus.  I love how – in the absence of detail – emphasis is placed on motion, light, color, and the body language and gesture of the figures.  Because the viewer has to fill in the blanks a bit I feel like the image is more engaging as we […]

Ascending to the Light

I have been shooting a bit more for my “Visual Whispers” body of work and I am getting excited about where it is going visually. I am figuring out what I want to explore as it relates to color, form, composition, light, and how much I can abstract the figures and environment before the picture […]
