I am drawn to the human face it's been my main interest over the years for both photography and shooting film. I also like candid shots where people are just being themselves but I really enjoy when people look straight at the lens and smile there's something psychological going on, for me I feel connected....
I can't imagine NYC without the iconic Central Park it would be like Paris without the Eiffel Tower it's a beautiful place to photograph or film in any season but especially in the spring and after the long dreary winter we had here in NY there's nothing like Spring in Central Park with its stunning show of....
When I was a kid I work at the historic Meat Packing district on 14th st. Back then I never imagined that this place would one day become an urban Oasis.

While enjoying the last days of summer I finally had a break and decided to roll up my sleeves and edit some video footage that's been sitting on my hard drive since June. For the most part everything was shot hand-held with my Sony A7s II in different neighborhoods throughout NYC. Editing this video was a breeze since I did a full computer rebuild for 4k video editing. Although I don't expect to work with 4k soon I thought it would be a good idea to future-proof my PC just in case.
I don't have a big collection of lenses but for most of mine street style videography I use the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS with the image stabilization off and in-camera steady-shot enabled which I think does a better job for smoother hand-held footage. I also used the Canon EF 100mm F/2.8 for portrait, 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 for sniper shots and my favorite lens the Carl Zeiss 50mm F/1.4 to get creamy bokeh. Last but not least is the Tiffen variable neutral density filter I never leave home without it unless it's an after hours shoot. Graded with Filmconvert and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Anyway summer is over and I didn't get the perfect tan I had hoped for the good news is I have 270 days left to work on my beach body:-)
