Texas Cop

About 10 years ago I went on  road trip through Texas and found this cop at a roadside fast food burger joint. I fought off my intimidation and asked him if I could snap a portrait of him. I recently rediscovered the image and started to play around with converting it to black and white. Using 3 types of Topaz software this is what I came up with. I like this version much better than the color.

I shot this during a winter drive in upstate NY. Shot in color and processed into B&W using Topaz software. Whenever I the a shot like this it reminds me that there are potential great photos all around us, it’s just a matter of seeing.

I was going back through all of my iPhone shots the other day and found this that I had totally forgotten about. This is one of the very first shots that I ever took on an iPhone. I just happen to catch this at the right moment. I love the light and love the mood.

I recently shot this portrait at a bowing alley in Times Square, NYC. It’s lit with a small soft box mounted on to a speedlight rigged up to a monopod. Down and dirty but effective.
