What`s New

Bright Eyes

Finally, I had an opportunity to shoot a couple of long exposure images in Center City Philadelphia. Lately, I haven’t had much time to shoot everything that I want to! Photography is not my day job and with two kids and one only 2 months old, it’s hard to find the time… I’m always inspired …

If you haven’t already heard. I’m planning my first HDR Photography Workshop at the Abandoned Historic Lansdowne Theater just outside of Philadelphia, either Sunday March 18th or 25th from 12pm to 4pm. I’m still deciding on the day, so if you’d like to stay informed about this workshop please join my Photography Workshop Group on …

Broken

Something about this image resonates well with me. Maybe it’s the high contrast look I was able to achieve without much post production. While shooting handheld in very low light conditions and a shutter speed of 1/60th to maintain image sharpness, you can take advantage of your camera underexposing the scene! Shooting with a wide …

Out of Control

The brackets from this Train Graveyard in PA deserved another visit last night and rightfully so, this location rocks! We were fortunate to have access to this specific car, because I heard from others that when they went it was locked up. Not sure why, but in my opinion this was the best train car …

Convicted

Holmesburg Prison in Philadelphia is sure to spin your head! As a bracketing sequence on my D7000 would end completion, I’d be off shooting handheld B&W images with my D5000! This cellblock was one of many that were accessible inside the prison and at the end of this hall would be the room where I …

#12

I was catching some nice light toward the end of our exploration at the Scranton Lace Factory and decided to take some B&W frames with the 35mm prime. I shot these images handheld with the camera set to monochrome and even though the RAW files preserved the RGB color information, I knew I wasn’t going …

I love architecture photography. Recently, I’ve signed up for KelbyTraining and saw a great video by Scott Kelby about composition and being able to know whats right and wrong about your shots! It’s best not to focus as much on the technical aspects but more on the emotional feelings about your work! It’s easy to think that …

Post processing in my opinion is the hardest thing to master in the world of photography. For all of the photography purists out there that don’t (heavily) process your images, you can ignore this post! Shooting techniques are an act of discipline, but processing an image to suit your vision is something that can make …

Chair On Wheels

First let me start off by saying, I’m no longer going to watermark my images! All of my work is All Rights Reserved and even with my watermark’s in the past, I’ve had an image stolen and misused! With that being said, the great debate over watermarks has been heard loud and clear! If a …

Ghost

While going back through some brackets from a July visit to this Abandoned Power Station, it brought me back to the feeling it was like to explore this amazing location. It was an incredible adventure and I had the luxury to explore it with two people whom are my favorite photographers to shoot Urbex with. …
