Spent the day yesterday shooting LARPers in CT. They are apart of Alliance, which has chapters all over the US, theirs specifically is named Caldaria. Everyone was super nice, I couldn't have felt more comfortable. I got a few portraits that I am happy with but I really need to go back. There were many people that I didn't get to shoot and a few that I'd like to reshoot as well. I also shot my hassey on everything so the film stuff should be up in a few weeks. I might bring a strobe next time as well. Not sure why but I feel like they could use a bit of a pop, everything is so surreal that a less natural look might work.

Here' s a few selects I fixed up quick in Lightroom.

Special thanks to Kate Hetu for making it all happen!

Some snaps on black

Don't know why I'm on this b&w kick again. All the editorial stuff I've been shooting has been color but when shooting my daily stuff I'm really digging the shades of grey. Here's a few from today.

Wife's Blog

Kate just started a new blog with photos and writing. Check it out.

Some snaps from a Saturday

Had a nice day off yesterday. I made an unexpected stop at the NYPH '09 and I'm really happy I did. Ran into some friends and got to see some good work. Of course there was the usual stuff that I wasn't into but there was a good vibe and I was introduced to several photographers works that I hadn't seen before or heard of before. Here's a list of people worth checking out.

I then stopped by a B-Day BBQ, happy birthday Reggie.

Haven't posted a collection of snaps in a while, I'm also really feeling b&w again. Shooting again for TimeOut NY today, should be good.

New 4x5 & Hassey stuff

Here's some film stuff I've shot over the past few weeks. Now it's warming up the beach stuff should start filtering its way on here. In the mean time here is some 4x5 and Hasselblad stuff. Once again they are all just quick scans for me to start feeling all this stuff out. I really enjoy shooting the 4x5, but I also really love the look from the Hassey.

Kate and Lightroom

Here's a little test I've done using Lightroom. I'm looking forward to exploring it more.

Lightroom definitely has some great features, I'm trying to learn more about processing techniques.
