Spent a few days in New York City and had a chance to photograph the new transportation hub downtown. The Oculus replaced the translation below the World Trade Center.
I have been working on a concept for a new group of photos. The concept consist of photo shopping the image of a man covered in black latex into landscapes and other images these are the first two images. Not sure if I want to continue with this concept some feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
While I’ve been busy getting ready for the last two exhibits I took a little time to process a couple of black and white negatives in the scanner and photoshop. The first is an example of work I did a long time ago based on our conceptions of masculinity and femininity. The second an old negative that was never printed because it didn’t fit into any projects I was working on.
The first was taken with a wide angle lens to purposely distort the hands and hips in the image and challenge our concepts of beauty. The hand looks very masculine while the pose is very feminine.
The second is a classic pose used by many fashion and portrait photographers for editorial type images. I hope you enjoy them and take a little look into some things I did in the past.
A few days ago I had some time to walk around the dunes at Flying Point Beach in Water Mill. I had Sam my Duck Tolling Retriever with me. A close eye on the dog was needed for fear he would get into trouble or swim in the frigid waters. At one time he got himself trapped in a maze of fencing designed to hold sand on the dunes. I did manage to get a few photos, and had some fun converting them to black and white. Playing with the red filter adjustment in Silver Efex 2 made ordinary photos more dramatic. Below are a few photos from the day’s walk, hope you enjoy them.
