I know this is no great news but I still can't get over the ability of taking photos with a phone, editing, photoshopping and uploading! It's crazy. I used to take photos. Take notes of my settings on my trusty homework notepad and wait a week for my film to be processed at Leon's Camera Shop or my local Shop Rite. (I was 13). No wonder I see whole projects and assignments being shot with the iPhone. It's also just plain fun and gratifying to take photos as a hobby. I don't have to light or ship and set up gear. No sticks. Crazy.

Warm Weather.

Shooting near the water today. The weather was dang warm and suddenly the light was gone. After the shoot I snapped this. Warm summer-like sky with a leafless tree.


The first of several to be installed in the NYC area. It's just south, in Bayonne.


Is this thing working?

Orchard Street by Alta Ruth Hahn

I used to live on Orchard Street. Although I don't miss those days of slanted living I do love old photos from the lower east side.

Time Traveling

That's a pretty fast exposure for 1901! Daylight? Flash powder?

More Sound & Motion

I have several projects in various stages of production but this is something we recently finished. No matter how much still photography you have under your belt, adding the dimension of motion and extended time within the frame takes a bit of getting used to.
