I shot the first four in New York and the last one in Philadelphia. I am at a point when I'm constantly trying to refine my eye and look for those shots that evaded me in the past. It is amazing that you can go to the same location at the same time of day and see it differently.

Today is the 4th of July. Due to the weather, I decided to shoot indoors. I had no ideal as to what I wanted to create. So, I figured that a portrait would be a good start. Here is my self portrait. The image was shot with a Canon 6D and the 40mm pancake lens. The shot was lit using two Alien Bees 800 watt lights. One was used behind me (bare bulb) to separate me from the background. The Key light had white umbrella on it for light diffusion. All other parameter varied from shot to shot. (usually 1/160, f8, iso 100). The image was manipulated in Photoshop using a 3 layer method.

These are a few shots from a relatively quiet Saturday. The first two are Lazy Susans shoot in Washington Square in New York. The last two are shot at 30th street station in Philadelphia. The cityscape in a revisited shot. The first time I attempted to shoot the scene I was using an aps sensor Canon camera (the T2i). This time I used a full frame camera (the Canon 6D). I must admit, the wider shot is more pleasing to the eye.
