Spent some time this past weekend working on images I recently shot in New York. Even though we all see in color, this is really a black and white city
I recently found this blog from NPR called The Picture Show. It’s a daily dose of photographs and interviews from around the world – a fantastic source for everything photographic. It’s most definitely worth a look.
It’s still hot outside so I’m spending time inside photographing for my stock archive.
I love looking through photography books – especially books on the history of photography. It’s a great source of inspiration. On a recent assignment we were shooting at a pool and just had to take a photo in honor of George Hoyningen-Huene. His 1930 photograph of couple by a pool, titled “Divers”, has had a lot of influence on me.
Had a recent photo shoot incorporating a pool, some good food and wine and “relaxation”. At least some relaxation for those involved. I’m kind of an antsy person so was completely comfortable moving around most of the time. The project was to show how we incorporate a backyard pool into our everyday lives. I had a lot of fun looking for design elements and interesting angles.
Here are some out-takes (more to come in a few days):
They say “photojournalism is dead”. I disagree. To prove this, here are some great photography sites developed by news organizations. It’s a fantastic source for photography from around the world.
The quality of photography and the scope of coverage are always amazing.
Here are a few of my favorites.
During a photo shoot this past weekend in Long Island, I had the opportunity to get away from the set and take some photographs in and around the house where we were located (photos from the main shoot will come later this week) . The house was built in the 1930’s (I believe) and had been recently vacated, with some of the furniture and private belongings left behind. It was strange to see what had been left. It was as though the owners wanted to keep a “presence” in the house. I wouldn’t say I believe in ghosts, but I certainly didn’t want to be in the house when it was dark. It was a very eerie place. Here are some of the photos:
Here’s an interesting article in The Week Magazine about rising to the top and how some make it and others don’t (click on photo below). It revolves around a set of theories on how and why Coco Rocha (a model) became famous so quickly. A clue: it wasn’t her looks. Kind of reminds me how other industries work – photography for example.
It’s an interesting read…
