Let Down Long Exposure

Shot:
On Memorial Day, myself as well as a few others flocked to the Fort Lee Memorial Park to get the coveted shot of the bridge all lit up for the holiday. While I was getting situated waiting for the sun to set and the lights to come on I got this nice super long exposure of the bridge. It was shortly after the police came up and set, park is closed… leave. I was a disappointing feeling that I was not able to get the photo I long awaited for.

Standing Tall

Shot:
Walking down under the bridge on a nice sunny day. The air was clear and the photos were great. There was a puddle that had a nice reflection on the George Washington Bridge Tower which led me to turn my camera portrait, something i rarely do.

Technique:
This photo was created using my Super Clean Preset as a start with a few small modifications to finalize the look.

Sunrise Self Challenge

Shot:
I recently saw a post on Instagram from Chris Burkard about how in our lives we see more sunsets than sunrises and he made it a goal to see more sunrises. I was thinking how true this is for me, I wake up get ready each and head to work. A majority of the year this occurs while the sun is already risen, just everyday I see the sunset whether from my office, my car or my home. I wanted to take his goal and make it mine as well, especially working near the greatest scenery to shot sunrises, the NYC Skyline. To start of this venture I happened to be in Rhode Island, so please enjoy this beautiful sunrise as I much as I did.

Rocky Point Park 2

Shot:
While exploring around Rocky Point Park in Warwick, RI I came across this half torn apart dock near these jetty which made a great scene to help capture the beauty of what Rhode Island has to offer. I planted myself on those rocks for a while just sitting, relaxing and thinking for hours.

Rocky Point Park

Shot:
I recently took a day trip up to Warwick, RI while my wife had a small work conference. I spend the entire day out exploring and photographing a few different areas. While I was out shooting sunrise I met these two lady’s that were out for a walk and they told me about Rocky Point Park. This area used to be an amusement park that was taken down and turned into this nice outdoor park. I enjoyed roaming around and see some parts of the structure and rides still on the grounds. If you ever travel to Rhode Island, I definitely recommend stopping by this park and enjoying the views.
