Manhattan Bridge from Dumbo

During the past several months I have been very busy photographically: a trip to Japan, two workshops at ICP and a complete redesign of my web site. The first work shop in the fall “An Interior View” was taught by architectural photographer Bryan Whitney www.bryanwhitney.com and the second this spring (ongoing)”The Amazing Bridges of New York City” is taught by Elliott Kaufman www.ekaufmanfineart.com Both are excellent teachers and photographers and I encourage all who are interested to visit their web sites. As you can see from my “Recent Work” gallery and a portion of the “Japan” gallery, I have returned to my first love in photography-Black & White so please check out the new web site and give me some feed back.

Family portraits

I recently completed a workshop on basic portrait lighting taught by a friend, excellent teacher  and photographer Carol Dragon. This was my initial attempt to utilize some of the techniques we learned and I look forward to learning more advanced techniques. If you’re in New York I highly recommend Carol’s workshops  in Photoshop, Lightroom, digital photography and lighting as well as her wonderful images at caroldragon.com. I recruited as several family members who would be patient enough to sit for me and I am generally pleased with the results. The pictures were lit with a single flash (umbrella or grid) and a flat white reflector. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

South Beach, Miami Beach

During an afternoon visit with an old friend and long time resident of south Florida, David Feinberg and his wife Hannah, I had an opportunity to photograph several of the classic art deco buildings in South Beach. These buildings are in stark contrast to those of the predominantly monochromatic steel structures in downtown Dallas. David is an architect and loves to regale tourists with the architectural history and art deco character of the area. He also played a major role in the construction of the new Miami Opera house, which will appear in a subsequent post. Activity on the beach right in front of the classic hotels of the 20’s and 30’s, as you can see, is as vibrant as the colors of the hotels themselves.Miami-7984_HDR Miami-7975_HDR-Edit-2 Miami-7963_HDR-Edit-2-Edit-Edit Miami-7954_HDR Miami-7940_HDR-EditMiami-7950

Dallas

I’ve only been to metro Dallas twice and this was my first time to what I believe is”downtown” Dallas. Here are a few images. Unlike mid town New York the downtown area is virtually empty on the weekends reminiscent of the financial district of New York in years past. I was struck as you can see by the imposing steel structures, modern Seven Eleven and the mega First Baptist Church. I will contrast the new downtown Dallas with the art deco of downtown Miami Beach (South Beach) in a subsequent post. Two iconic examples of the new South.L1000379-Edit L1000318-Edit-6

Clocks

 

Time, our most precious asset, hence our fascination with clocks. Here are four examples of clocks I have photographed. The first from the interior of the Musée d’Orsay overlooking Sacré Coeur, the second in downtown Dallas, the third from the movie Hugo taken at an exhibit at MOMA and the last a clock tower from San Gimignano in Tuscany.
