Quick post from the park near Old Man Rafferty’s and Harvest Moon off of George Street in New Brunswick.
My decision to buy a Mamiya was due in part to reading Annie Leibovitz’s “At Work” book while on a recent vacation. She had kind words to say about her equipment of choice. If Mamiya is good enough for artists like Annie Leibovitz and Herb Ritts, then Mamiya is good enough for me.
In this video I give a few tips on buying a new camera and exploring the world of photography. It’s not as easy as buying an expensive camera and suddenly becoming a “professional”. Learn the craft. That’s how your work takes shape and stands out from the crowd.
And, yes, I do say “uh” and “um” a lot in this video. I did it in one take, so I’m pretty proud of that. Ha ha! In the future, I promised less “uhs” and “uhms”.
I had the pleasure of photographing a great wedding at The English Manor in Ocean Township, New Jersey. Jennifer and Anthony couldn’t have picked a nicer day to get married. I arrived early to take a walk around the grounds and find spots for post-ceremony shots with the bride and groom. Everyone was easy to work with and you can’t ask for anything more than that. Here are some of my favorite shots taken throughout the day. Enjoy!
For years I’ve wanted to visit Lucy the Elephant and this weekend I finally did so. SUPER IMPRESSIVE! I did not know the extensive history of this amazing structure and it’s definitely something to behold. The first photo below is looking out through Lucy’s eye window. The second photo shows you just how big the structure is. You can learn more about Lucy by visiting her web site.
