Photo of the Week #225

October 27, 2014

I think we can all agree that the city of Henderson, Nevada looks like a giant silicon chip, yes?

It’s always a pleasure to return to Highbridge Voices in the Bronx to take new photos of students fully immersed in sharpening their music and academic skills. The non-profit organization, founded in 1998, provides voice and music theory training, academic tutoring and recreation after school for students in grades four through twelve. The images I captured on Tuesday and Wednesday will be used on the Highbridge Voices website, in printed programs, and as decor in the facility itself. While most of the photos I took show the kids faces, the abstract nature of the one below will make it useful to the organization for years to come. To see pics of the kids performing on stage, be sure to check out my blog post highlighting the Highbridge Voices 2014 Benefit Concert.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art lens @ f1.6, 1/80th, ISO 200.

Why did I shoot at a relatively slow shutter speed? Not for lack of light, but because I wanted to avoid the mixed white balance caused by the rapid flickering of non-tungsten artificial lighting like fluorescent, mercury-vapor or sodium-vapor. The next time you encounter an odd mixed white balance gradient within a frame or from shot to shot, try slowing your shutter speed. Read more about this phenomenon on the Canon blog.

Photo of the Week #223

October 13, 2014

I love this portrait I took a week ago of brother and sister Harrison and Haile hugging on a cobblestone street in Lower Manhattan. I’ve been photographing their family for years, and dating all the way back to 2010 they’ve never been camera-shy. Harrison and Haile’s new 3-month-old baby sister? She’s not quite as eager.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art lens @ f2.5, 1/200th, ISO 100, Einstein E640 strobe in 35″ octabox.

Photo of the Week #222

October 6, 2014

My favorite photo I took this past week is of my close encounter with New York Ranger Mats Zuccarello throwing all of his 5’7″ body into Chicago Blackhawk Marcus Krüger at Madison Square Garden. I was shooting the hockey game through that hole you see in the glass, but pulled back just in time to save my lens and get this cool perspective.

The game was preseason in name only, as the Rangers (runners-up in the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals) played aggressively against the 2013 Stanley Cup champs, throwing plenty of checks and tying the game with 4:28 left in the third period before winning it, 3-2, in a 9-round shootout.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, Rokinon 14mm f2.8 (manual focus!) lens @ f4, 1/2000th, ISO 5000.

The Rockettes hit the stage with rapper Pitbull last Wednesday night for his performance of Fireball on the Season 9 Finale of America’s Got Talent at Radio City Music Hall and I was there to shoot it. I think this image in particular captures the Rockettes’ athleticism and enthusiasm. The Rockettes made it the cover image of their Facebook page, where you can also see other photos I took of their performance and rehearsal.

Photo of the Week #219

September 15, 2014

On Friday, Luke Bryan headlined a sold-out night of country music at Madison Square Garden that included performances by Lee Brice and Cole Swindell. The concert was part of Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night” 61-show tour that has crisscrossed the U.S. and Canada all year, including a previous stop at Madison Square Garden back in January. You can see many more of my photos from the show on Madison Square Garden’s Facebook page.

Random thought of the day: Does this image look oddly familiar? It did to me, and then I realized it looks a whole lot like my previous Photo of the Week. Totally different subject matter, yet remarkably similar structure. Only one star featured in this one though :)

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 16-35mm f4 IS lens @ 16mm, f4, 1/400th, ISO 3200.
