Street Shot

It's been quite a few days since my last post. I've been taking a course at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City, and been totally consumed by preparing work for the next round of classes this weekend. More on that next week.

I needed a break from editing over 180 photographs down to 40 (I'm still not there, but making progress) for a class presentation. There's some images I'm just so in love with that I refuse to admit that they don't add anything important to the story. I need an independent eye to look over the series.

In January a series of my photographs taken on the Lower East Side will be part of a group show at the MetroWest JCC in West Orange, NJ. Here's the poster for that show:

On my one outing this past week I experimented with some settings on my camera. I've grown a bit lazy by using auto ISO, and settled for the average exposure of the camera meter. Wednesday was a bright sunny day and I wanted to take advantage of the strong contrast to get some images with the extreme highlights were brought within reasonable exposure range, so I underexposed all my images by a stop, and brought out the shadow detail in Lightroom and Silverexpress Pro 2. I wasn't really searching for meaningful images, but I liked one shot:

Once the class is finished I'll be back on the street again.
