I met Eden through Instagram and after some back and forth, we decided to shoot on Festivus. Things came up and I was super late but she was a trooper the entire time. We went from shooting at the Museum of the Moving Image, to Roosevelt Island to various spots in Astoria and she stuck through it all without any complaints. Below are a few of the photos from that shoot.
Shot using my GoPro Hero3+ and edited using FCP X.
It takes motivation and boldness to walk across a suspension bridge to capture images. The motivation and boldness grows tenfold if you're afraid of heights and the bridge in question is the Triboro (RFK) Bridge with (too) many trucks zooming by. To add adversity, I chose to venture out just ask the temperature dropped 25°, but with my new Dolica LA600 tripod on-hand, I was determined.
Below, you'll see my first experience with long exposure shots. Surprisingly, it was Instagram that has gotten me to dive deeper into the world of photography. Through it, I am intrigued and eager to mimic photos beyond what I've always taken (street, portraits and landscape). Through this, I've realized I need a remote shutter to help produce better shots. That's to come but until then, here are some decent shots that came out.
