As of late...

I haven't updated in a while! I am terrible blogger... is obvious that I'm new to this?

I was actually just documenting for them "who is taller?" but I ended up really liking this picture- the tones and composition mostly.
West Vienna

Saul Williams
Crowd, I wanted to use the stage lights, and even though it's dark I like the colors.
There were bike tricks during intermissions of the show

Philly Fashion Week

Some of these are watermarked because I actually took pictures at fashion week for the magazine, but I wanted to post some just to show what I've been doing lately.

Features from last week

Forgot to post these up. I don't know if I grasped the assignment completely- I just saw moments/ people I found interesting on the street and photographed them. I had trouble taking the pictures without them noticing/ caring which is why some aren't as technically sound as I would like- I felt like I was rushing.

Update 4

This guy was playing some music outside of The Franklin Institute on Saturday, and he saw me take his picture. He said "everybody's taking pictures, nobody's giving me money." I did end up giving him a bit.

Catching the droplets- I used a shutter of 1/500 I believe. I took a few but liked this one because of the background.
Stairs at The Franklin Institute.
The original door of the Eastern State Penitentiary.

Al Capone's cell- look how decorated. I found it very interesting that all of the inmates had flushing toilets and heating at a time when the majority of people used outhouses, but this wasn't for comfort- it was to maintain separation between the inmates which was constantly monitored.
Gross- rotted toilet paper?
Not a great pan- I think I will keep trying.

Update 3

I just loved the way this looked! I sort of wish it was a little more level though.

Update 2

I think like this the best, you get a feel for the placement.

Murals are truly amazing.
