Is it broken?

IMG_1054.jpg

After jumping off the stage at the end of his set… Marcel, Lead vocals and guitar of band called Die Hexe , announced to the audience that he thought he broke his ankle.

For the rest of the show, he was be asked probably around 100 times.. if it was broken..

no word yet from the doctor whether or not it is actually broken.. but pretty punk rock regardless of the outcome.

Canon 60D Kit lens blah blah blah

I found my self in the photography pit fro a recent local August Burns Red concert. It’s a funny story how I got int here to begin with. But once in there, I realized I was totally unprepared to take concert photo’s. I was shooting a Vlog that day for another project.

There were a few moments when the lights were right for my Kit lens on my canon 60D to handle the surroundings.

I wasn’t actually trying to take this picture, it was more of “hey I see my friend in the crowd lets take a picture of him” at the exact moment a very popular song started up by the band , the crowd roared and I snapped a picture with loads of emotion.  And my friend Matt smiling center frame.

There were only like 3 other pictures that turned out from the 100 that I took.

Such is life.

Walking a Dog in NYC.

NYC Pug

I feel like owning a dog in NYC would suck. It would have to live in your small over priced apartment. It would bark and make your neighbors mad. Dog hair. Dog smell. Dog poop. You would have to walk it down narrow busy streets full of tourists and pissed of cab drivers. Then when it decides to take a crap on the side walk, you have to grab the little bag a pick up its crap while 300 people eating pizza and wearing “I heart new york” t shirts watch and shame you as if dogs aren’t supposed to poop.

And then not to mention some long haired Canadian guy will decide to take a picture of your dog as your’e walking it down the side walk in hopes that it will do it’s business so you can go back to your apartment, throw on Netflix and stress about how you’re going to make your next rent payment.

Life yahknow?

anyways.

I’m less afraid to point my camera at animals than I am to point it at people. This dog still didn’t seem to impressed.

This is on some small numeric street in west Manhattan last week.

After dropping this camera down a mountain, I’ve started wrestling with light leaks. Some may say that Light leaks are creative and artsy, but not when you are trying to take a non-lightleaked photo..Duhh.

This was one of the few on the roll that was not affected. Haven’t really figured out why yet.

Thank you so much for following, and reading my blog.

Looking Up. (day 9)

IMG_1704

The first thing that any visitor to New York city will do when they arrive is look up.

New York city is built in a grid patter. Except for what seems from a maps perspective, one street. So while walking around you will get random happenings where the normal 90 degree turn gets chopped in half. So, instead of changing the street back in the day. (which I know wasn’t possible) they decided to just build triangle building.

The most famous of these types of intersections is the one and only Time Square. Where broadway street slices its way through the city.

This photo is taken on the south downtown of the island near wall street.

Instant Smile. (day 7)

BW - Sarah -Polaroid

I own a Polaroid Supercolor 600 – It’s really cool.

The most uncool thing is that film is expensive.

I try my best to make every shot count. – This photo was taken in complete darkness in a basement and I let the massive flash of the camera light the room. I then scanned it at 1200i resolution.

if you have a polaroid camera or film laying around and dont want it I will gladly take it off your hands.

Me. (Day 1)

me

I’ve never done anything like this before… actual I’m lying I vlogged my life for 10 days straight once and that was next to impossible. – I have a friend who is writing a blog everyday for the month of October all around one theme – She is an excellent writer and will be famous one day for it. Her name is Aliza and you can read her stuff here. — Anywho, I decided to steal her idea’s of fortune and fame by uploading some of the photo’s that I have kicking around every day this month. – I really truly hope to succeed.

Some will be long. Some will be short, a probably, some will be late. But regardless I hope to upload 30 or is it 31 photo’s over the next month… I guess 30 now because I’ve uploaded this one.. but I Haven’t uploaded it yet I’m still typing in the “new draft” box…

I don’t know

anyways here we go.

The above photo is me. I guess you could call it a selfie. Its on a 8mm fisheye on a canon 60D, a fairley expensive selfie.

thanks for reading.

When It Rains; It Pours

Rain

You ever have a photo you just can’t wait to upload? This is one of those photo’s.

I used to work in a kitchen, and after a terrible shift one evening I was looking for a way to calm myself down and relax a bit. It was intensely raining when I got off work but I was still set on chilling myself out by taking some photo’s on my QL19.

I worked pretty close to a Wal-Mart Shopping center, so I went a stood at the entrance of the store, in out of the rain. My intention was that I would get some interesting photo’s of some interesting people, being interesting at the local Wal-Mart. You know… to try and get some quality photo’s for peopleofwalmart.com…. –

As I was standing watching people run out of the rain, I was looking for that perfect person to snap a shot of running in out of the rain and capturing that pain of being rained on.

Just as I was looking out I saw a lone Umbrella go flying by in the wind. And then, the lonely misfortune owner of the umbrella running after it. – I knew right then that I needed to capitalize on the photo opportunity, but instead, I hesitated. I said to my self, “what if I get my 1971 Canon QL19 wet?” – I quickly bashed those thoughts back in my head and darted out in the rain after the man chasing his umbrella.

The battery in my camera is dead, and I’ve been searching for a replacement but they don’t make the type battery anymore, so I’m searching for one that could work. – Saying that, The internal Light meter doesn’t work in my camera. So, I’m totally estimating the camera settings. – It’s slightly underexposed.

I should have ran up closer to the man, but it seemed like he was about to catch his fleeing umbrella, so, before I lost the picture completely , I took the shot on the 45mm lens from a distance. I wish I was closer and more intimate.

None the less it is a testimony of being at the right place at the right time.
