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

Verrazano Sunset

Caught a brilliant sunset behind the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in New York.  Taken from the Brooklyn side in a park long side the Belt Parkway.

Verrazano Sun Flare

HDR image of the sun setting behind the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, taken from the Brooklyn side.

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.

September 11th, 2014

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.

City Lights

Long exposure image of downtown Manhattan taken from across the river near the Brooklyn piers.  Can see the twilight sky behind the clouds.

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:

Verrazano-Narrows Bridge at Night

On the way out of Brooklyn, the thunderstorm overhead was starting to lighten up.  So we stopped at Fort Wadsworth in Staten Island to try and capture a nice view of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Another Lightning Strike in Manhattan

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.

Sunset at Montauk Point

Visited Montauk Point with my niece and nephew to try and get some sunset images of the lighthouse.  The clouds disappeared quickly and we really couldn’t line up the lighthouse with the sunset in a way I had hoped.  The only images I ended up with that I liked were a few coastline shots. Here’s

Storm Front over Manhattan

A long exposure view of an approaching storm front over Manhattan.  This image was taken from the eastern stanchion of the Manhattan Bridge looking southwest during the Memorial Day weekend.  Rain and lightning could be seen off in the distance while there were still blue skies behind us. The rain eventually reached us about 15

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.

Montauk Lighthouse and the Milky Way

This is a second version of the Montauk Lighthouse and the Milky Way from a last minute night shoot at Montauk Point.  A shooting star (and possibly a 2nd, smaller one, next to it) is seen above. Used my 24-70mm at 24mm.  It seems my 24-70 lens is sharper in the corners at 2.8 than

Milky Way over Montauk Lighthouse

With clear skies in the forecast and the moon setting early, we made a last minute decision to take a quick trip to Montauk Lighthouse to try to grab some Milky Way images.   Tried to do some Milky way images a few weeks ago in Asbury Park, but the light pollution was way too
