The World View From The Circle

Published July 26th, 2012

Location

This is what I am certain of; one of the many globes in New York City. This one in particular is at Columbus Circle -- across the street from the Time Warner Center.

Equipment

Camera: Nikon D5000

Lens: 18 - 55mm

Exposure: 1/250 sec at f/3.5, 1/1000 sec at f/3.5, 1/45 sec at f/3.5

Tripod: Oben AT-3400

WorkFlow

This a multi-exposure image shot in RAW -- which was taken shortly after morning blue hour. I was a bit sad that I missed the opportunity. But I think the photo still works well. For this bracket I did use my tripod. I have to say that this photo was a disappointment -- at least initially. There was no good setup.

The 1 train entrance was in the way, multiple light poles were in the way and there were other things in the way. But I got over myself and saw the “mistakes” as not mistakes -- just a opportunities to tell the story differently. At the end I actually think the light pole works.

All post work was done using Adobe Lightroom 4.1 and Photomatix 4.2.

The New York City RoofTop View

Published July 25th, 2012

Location

This is another photo from a rooftop of a friend’s building in NYC.

Equipment

Camera: Nikon D5000

Lens: 18 – 55mm

Exposure: 1/250 sec at f/3.5, 1/1000 sec at f/3.5, 1/60 sec at f/3.5

Tripod: None (handheld)

WorkFlow

This a multi-exposure image shot in RAW. For this bracket I did have my tripod but I simply elected not to use it. Why — there is no logical reason I just wanted the freedom to not be restricted by the tripod. But as I have mentioned before — camera shake is inevitable.

I wish I had more friends that lived in NYC. Some of them have moved away and many of them have houses outside of NYC. So I guess I just need to make new friends that live in Manhattan.

Why — because of the rooftop views.

It’s almost a small escape from the busy City. This photo is of nothing terribly special but it was a great view. And I had to capture that moment.

All post work was done using Adobe Lightroom 4.1 and HDR Efex Pro.
