Blurring the Boundaries of Photography and Illustration

Blurring the Boundaries of Photography and Illustration

| November 28, 2010

This treatment may not everyone’s cup of tea but I enjoy exploring the boundaries of imagery that are possible with new digital tools. In this case, I took a single shot from my Canon 5D Mark II DSLR and processed it with native Photoshop capabilities and plugins from Topaz Labs and OnOne Software. The plugins […]

Manhattan Twilight

| November 25, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I have been aching to get one of these shots up since my trip to New York a couple of weeks ago. I ended up flying to the other coast right after New York so that is why I am a bit delayed in getting this one going. I love this city! […]

A Slice of Life in Central Park

A Slice of Life in Central Park

| November 20, 2010

I have never really been able to appreciate Central Park. A few minutes here and there crammed between meetings and dinner engagements. This time was different. I planned to spend some quality time meandering it’s pathways to have a real experience. All in, I spent 10 hours over two days in the park and loved […]

I have decided that the resolution of my new camera and lens is insane! It can actually take in more detail than my eye can comprehend in the field. I can’t tell you how much fun it is to bring these photos home and explore them. It’s like unrolling a map full of hidden treasures. […]

There weren’t many people out at that time except at a Yellow Taxi depot about two blocks to the right toward the Hudson River. There must have been fifty of them parked all over the place […]

While in New York City this week, I had a small window to shoot. My goal was to get inside Saint Patrick’s Cathedral to shoot a few HDR frames before heading home today. I was able to carve a little bit of time out late Thursday afternoon, so I made my way from the Intercontinental […]

New York City in HDR

New York City in HDR

| January 30, 2010

One of my goals this year is to improve my photography skills so I can create better photographic references for studio paintings. I have read over and over again that cameras are not equipped to capture the true essence of a scene like our eyes are, and that painting from life is the only real […]

A Morning at the Frick Collection

A Morning at the Frick Collection

| August 15, 2009

  90 Degrees and 90 percent humidity was not going to stop me. During the John Taft  plein air workshop I took in June, John mentioned the Frick Collection during one of his lectures and that is was a must see if we were ever in New York City. Having been to Manhattan 40 plus […]
