1920′s Speakeasy

Last night I photographed The Market Factory’s Holiday Party in lower Manhattan. The theme was a 1920′s Speakeasy and the party was a lot of fun! Everyone looked fabulous in their costumes. What a great idea!

babies… babies… babies!

On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of photographing an adorable set of triplets. I love, love, love how they interacted with one another and I’m really pleased with the way the photos turned out. I think all this snow has put me in a black and white mood!

Enjoy.

Point and Shoot – New Camera Fun

It’s a busy time over here – making holiday cards and fulfilling holiday orders… but I’ve managed to play a bit!

We bought a new point and shoot recently – the Lumix LX3. I’ve been wanting one with full manual control and RAW file capture… so for the first time ever I strayed from Canon and went with the Lumix.

As I’ve mentioned before, early on Saturday mornings I teach photography to a boy who lives in Gravesend, Brooklyn. I decided to document my day using the new camera. Most of the photos are on manually set with the flash output being manipulated. The exception are the 2 where I used the camera’s nifty “pinhole” preset!

The way I start most mornings …

Transfer to the N Train.

Possibly the last bit of color on their block (and a good example of how great the manual/flash controls are on this camera!)

My student, his family and I headed to Greenwood Cemetery to photograph there. This is a bit morbid, but I liked it.

This just fascinated me… if anyone knows why it says “transplanted” on Percy’s grave, I’d like to know.

I really love Greenwood. I want to dig up some photos I took there years ago when I had first bought my Rebel. It’s so pretty, even in the winter.
Again – loving the manual control of this camera! Check out that sky.

Sad, cold flowers (pinhole setting)

Oops, I lied in my intro – this photo was taken on the black and white setting. I found this man to be so interesting. Naturally, he talked to me on the train as most people do.

The next two images are from the Upper West Side. I headed there after teaching to drop off a holiday card order.
