I was just saying a few posts ago that it had been a long time since I posted any videos. You know what? Its been even longer (I think) since I posted a new vintage camera. That being said, I return with a blockbuster! Just purchased using my secret (not anymore) Ebay bidding strategy of mostly bidding on auctions that end on or around holidays when people are gathered together far from their screens, I picked up this juicy Nikon F100 for $125 a few days back. Widely considered to be one of the best ever film SLR cameras and the more affordable version of the legendary F5, I'm pretty stoked to add one to the arsenal for those days when I feel like getting back to basics and "regressing" to film.
Wow, it certainly has been a while since I posted a Friday video. Realizing this fact, I promptly went out and dug up a few you must see. Here's the first one:
On how photographers can make a difference: all about the emerging genre of "conservation photography", with tragic and beautiful images from all around this wonderful world.
I'm finally getting somewhere with the images I shot in this fall with the Hasselblad H4D-40. This first set is from my visit to the World Trade Center construction site, where I had the pleasure of slogging through the pit and climbing the towers with Michael Calcagno, digital media consultant for Silverstein Properties. I decided to work the extremes for this shoot, using the H4D-40 and my Polaroid Sun 660. Many more Hassy images to come in the following weeks...
Not many posts last week which usually means I had a busy couple of days--in this case, lots of shoots and lots of retouching (groan). I had the Hassy for the week (!) and took it to the wilds of High Line section 3 and the World Trade Center construction site (I'll post those soon enough...). For now, here are a few Polaroids, also from the WTC shoot.
The High Line's latest fundraising booklet includes one of my all-time favorite High Line people watching photos (even though I kick myself every time I see it for not removing that white bag by their feet!).
In light of the two pieces of good news related to Section 3 of the High Line that came in the past week, I thought it was high time to preview some work in progress...one of my Section 3 shots from a few weeks back.
