Through The Window

This was through my window on west 28th which is directly across from a cross fit gym. Shot it in color but processed it into black and white, I think adds a nice starkness and brings the viewer directly into the subject’s face. Whenever I get a shot like this I feel lucky because in an instant she could move away from the window and the scene is gone as if it never existed.

As I wind down my Musicians 50+ project I was finally able to shoot drummer and songwriter Jay Dee Daugherty known for his work with Patti Smith. As a member of the Patti Smith Group he has been nominated twice to the Rock and Roll hall of Fame. I’ve really enjoyed shooting black and white project after many years of primarily working in color. The trick was finding a conversion workflow that I liked. After much experimenting I found that Topaz software gave me exactly what I was looking for.

Timing is everything when shooting on the street. One second later this is a completely different photo. The lack of control is exciting.

I shot this yesterday in the subway. They had just announced a delay and the woman next to may displayed this expression of dismay. I shot it, one second there, the next second gone. That’s what makes street photography so exciting. These subway shots just may be the beginning of a new series. Shot on my iPhone and mage processed using Snapseed.

I shot this in the subway a couple of days ago and using the app Snapseed managed to get this painterly effect. It’s amazing what one can do on a phone these days.

Recently I’ve started to get back to my roots began to shot some black and white street photography. This time around I’ve been using my iPhone which is always in my pocket. The great thing about it is that people are so used to seeing people staring into their phones that it’s very easy to shoot on the street and no one takes notice. This surreal image was shot on the north corner of Union Square Park at 17th Street after rain storm.
