Brooklyn Bridge Tower

date July 11, 2017 location New York, NY comments 0 Comments

Today's shot is one of the two Brooklyn Bridge towers. This shot was taken from almost directly underneath the tower and was particularly difficult to compose because I had to get the symmetry just right and at the same time make sure I was out of the way of runners, cyclists and other pedestrians using the bridge.

New York City Sunrise

A bit of a unique edit in today's post which is not my typical style of processing photos. I really liked the textures of the clouds but I had trouble getting the right colors out of the sunrise so I went with a slightly more artistic edit which I think keeps the early morning feel to it and isn't a total black and white edit. This is the Manhattan Bridge across taken from the Brooklyn Bridge.

On the Brooklyn Bridge

While I've posted several photos of the Brooklyn Bridge, up until this point none of them were taken while standing on the bridge itself. After finding a nice window where no runners or bikers were coming through, I set up my tripod and quickly grabbed this photo on the bridge. I'll have to go for a run here on my next trip to New York.

Today's post is another from the Brooklyn Bridge Park area during a recent sunrise viewing. You can see the sun just starting to come above the horizon here.

Athletic Shoot: Paleo is Possible

date June 29, 2017 location Chicago, IL comments 0 Comments

When my friend Ryan asked me to shoot some athletic shots of him for his new business, Paleo is Possible, I jumped at the idea. I recommended the calisthenics park in Lincoln Park that I frequently pass on my runs up the Lakefront Trail. Ryan is Primal Health Coach certified, and for anyone looking for a nutrition, fitness and overall well-being coaching, I would encourage you to check out his website.

Brooklyn Bridge Marina

This is the Manhattan Skyline from the Brooklyn Bridge Marina. It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been out shooting a few times over the course of the past couple of months but just haven’t felt the urge to put up any of the shots that I got. After getting up at the crack of dawn to get this shot and a few others which i’ll be posting in the coming weeks, I finally felt like I had something cool to share.

Café Brauer Entrance

I actually took a very similar shot to this several weeks ago only to find that my camera lens was so covered in dust that it was unfixable (my fault for not zooming in after I thought I had it captured). I came back and had similar lighting and got the same long exposure style shot I was going for. This is Café Brauer at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
