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.

Photo of the Week #218

September 3, 2014

I think you’ll agree this image from California ranks right up there with #206 as one of my least “New York” Photos of the Week ever. We don’t see many stars in the bright lights of New York City, so I couldn’t help but get a warm tingly feeling as I stood in the crisp night air, transfixed on this spectacular scene at Lassen Volcanic National Park. I would have stared all night at the Milky Way and starry night sky reflecting off glassy Manzanita Lake were it not for the prospect of becoming bear food. I was prepared to use my tripod as a weapon as I walked back to my cabin through the woods under the dark, moonless sky, but luckily the only furry creature I encountered was a bunny.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, Rokinon 14mm f2.8 lens @ f2.8, 30 seconds, ISO 12800.

The Rockettes’ “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” dance routine is as old as the Radio City Christmas Spectacular itself, having been performed by the Rockettes every year since the show’s inception in 1933. So, what a treat it must have been for the kids in attendance at the 6th Annual Garden of Dreams Foundation Dream Week in New York City to learn part of the number from the Rockettes themselves at Radio City Music Hall.

Dream Week is one of the Garden of Dreams Foundation’s core programs, exposing New York City’s neediest children to exclusive summer activities outside of their daily environment. Throughout Dream Week, each division of The Madison Square Garden Company brings opportunities and celebrity involvement to create positive memories for the children that will last a lifetime. For more, check out Photo of the Week #179 from last year’s Dream Week, plus full galleries of photos from Dream Week 2011 here and here.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 24-70 f2.8 II lens @ 27mm, f2.8, 1/320th, ISO 3200, 580EX II flash.

New York Summer Camp

Summer Camp in upstate New York

A couple of weeks ago I spent a day in upstate New York at Camp Young Judaea Sprout Lake shooting promotional images for the camp’s brochures and website. Here are a handful of photos that best capture the wide range of creative, athletic and team-building activities available to the campers as they spend the summer away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Here’s a shot I took of the Radio City Rockettes dancing on their building’s marquee for this past week’s season premiere of America’s Got Talent. This was the longest kick-line, 24 Rockettes, ever to perform on the marquee in Radio City Music Hall’s 82-year history. Want to see more? Check out this gallery on the Rockettes’ Facebook page, along with photos I took of their rehearsal and on-stage performance on America’s Got Talent.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 70-200mm f2.8 II lens @ 70mm, f3.5, 1/250th, ISO 3200.

Photo of the Week #214

July 28, 2014

While I normally reserve Photo of the Week status for a single image, I couldn’t resist double-dipping in recognition of boxing champ Gennady Golovkin’s double-feature this week. On Wednesday night, he made his Broadway debut with a cameo appearance in Rocky at the Winter Garden Theatre. When I say debut, I mean he had never even seen a Broadway show before, adding his name to what I’m sure would be a very short list! On Saturday night, Golovkin was back in his comfort zone with a seemingly effortless third round technical knockout of Daniel Geale at Madison Square Garden, retaining his middleweight title and extending his knockout streak to 17. What can’t this guy do?

On June 23, 2014, boxer Gennady Golovkin makes his Broadway debut in Rocky. Three nights later, he defends his middleweight title against Daniel Geale at Madison Square Garden, earning his 17th straight knockout victory.
