A Childhood Stomp

During my last days at CNN, I traveled outside to Columbus Circle, finding a small boy frolicking in the water, as his family watched near by.  The boy reminded me of Savion Glover.

Cultural Gathering In Contrast

People enjoying the peace at Lincoln Center, New York.  My intention of this piece was to utilize the brightness of the illuminated water and the night to establish a high contrast black and white photo.  I wanted to capture the feeling which would allow the viewer to feel as if they could be one of the people there or one of the people approaching the fountain.

Taken at the Hoboken Terminal, these post was shot with a Canon 5D mark II and a Canon  24mm TS-E 3.5L lens.  I used the lens to create a shallow depth of field along the length of the decaying post.  I used "Manual Zoom" to take the close up.  In case you didn't know what "Manual Zoom" is, it's when you physically move your body closer to your subject as a means of zooming in.  In this case I was crotched on the "Zoomed Out" photo and simply stood up and used the Live View feature of my camera along with my arms stretched out fully to obtain the "Zoomed In" point of view.
