Paul and Michelle’s Photo Shoot in Brooklyn

Michelle and Paul just recently got engaged and wanted some photos to mark the occasion.  So Igor and I got volunteered to try and be creative.  Luckily Igor has some experience in lighting and poses. We had a great sunset and used a single off-camera flash for most of these shots.  Didn’t have a chance

Milky Way on the Hudson

Clouds disappeared as we arrived for a NYC night shot with the moon.  But with the way the city lights sparkled in the clear night, it reminded me of an image of the Milky Way.

Fiery Dawn in Manhattan

Early morning rain clouds allowed the sun to peek through at dawn.  Just in time to light up  the clouds behind Manhattan with a nice glow.

Long exposure image of the September 11th Tribute in Lights in Manhattan.  Image was taken from up on the Manhattan Bridge.  Was a great view from up there and plenty of photographers showed up that night.

Evening Downtown

Used a 10-stop filter during sunset to grab this long exposure image of downtown Manhattan.  Process with sepia tones.

Rainy Morning in Manhattan

Woke up early for an attempt at a sunrise shot before open hockey at the Union Sports Arena.  Weather didn’t cooperate and failed to give me the clouds I wanted.  But it was eerily calm that morning and it set up a nice reflection on the Hudson for a long exposure:

Stopped by DUMBO on a Friday night and got caught in a thunderstorm.  Was able to capture this strike on a building before the rain really started coming down and drove us out.

Lightning over Manhattan

Was lucky enough to grab this image of lightning flashing over Manhattan during a quick photoshoot on the Manhattan Bridge during the Memorial Day weekend.  Rain was starting to get heavy and there wasn’t any cover to attempt more chances.  

Rain in Manhattan

With a half-day at work because of the holiday weekend, and with a thunderstorm approaching, we decided to try and grab some images of the stormy weather over Manhattan.  Took this long exposure image from the eastern stanchion of the Manhattan Bridge looking southwest. The rain was just starting to fall.

Downtown Manhattan Pre-Sunrise

This is a view of downtown Manhattan, at about 20 minutes before sunrise, taken from across the Hudson River in Liberty State park, NJ.  The overcast clouds surprisingly took on a nice, purple-ish hue.  I used a 10-stop filter to extend the shutter speed to help smooth out the water and clouds.  This exposure ended
