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.

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.
