Queensboro Bridge Starts

Shot:
I recently took a trip to Queensboro Bridge Park with a group of guys to photo the bridge during Sunset. This bridge lights up really cool in the evening and gives you the opportunity to create all these starburst effects on the lights by shooting with a higher fStop. The bridge itself is also really cool looking has has these awesome mini spires on top that provide for great architectural features in your shots.

Freezing for Good Photos

Shot:
The weather has been pretty eradic recently dipping below freezing and above 50 in the same week. On this night a group of us decided to head over to Queens, NY a shot around the Queensboro Bridge and Gantry State Plaza. It happened to be one of the coldest nights so far even with many many layers of clothes and hand warmers in my gloves I still had periods of minimal feeling in my body. Sometimes we push ourselves to the limit to get the greatest shots we can. Hope you enjoy.

Dividing Lines

Shot:
On one of the coldest nights we have had, yeah I said it considering we have had the oddest weather I have yet to ever experience. One day below freezing the next being mid 50’s, we happen to choose a night that it was in the 30’s to stand on frozen ground next to the water to shoot the Queensboro Bridge. There was a great sunset happening just not over the bridge so I decided to turn around and shoot behind me to get the color I could see in the sky. I also was in a cool spot to notice the railing which helped divide my picture and add perspective to the camera. Sometimes even when going to shoot majestic objects like bridges who never know what you will get when you just turn around.
