Lately I have been looking for clouds and waiting for sunset and leaving immediately after. I feel like I’ve forgotten all about blue hour and night time. Odd because as a kid, the lights in Times Square and Coney Island at night were so alluring. I especially remember being a kid and not being able to be outside at night much, but the few times I got to see the rides at Coney Island at night amazed me! As a photog, the thoughts have changed to worrying about an empty black sky but I guess it isn’t so bad to think like a kid once in a while. FYI, fireworks at Coney Island start tomorrow. I’m gonna be busy (as usual) but y’all need to go out there and kill it! ---------------------------------------------------------

First picture with my new tripod, the Gitzo Mountaineer 3542L. No I am not a Gitzo brand ambassador (yet?). I’m a picky man who wants a relatively light tripod that will keep my Nikon D810 stable during long exposures. I also want it to be compact and at least have my tripod just above my eye level. Loved my Induros but each one didn’t fit all the requirements. Now nothing is completely perfect, so I’ll post stories about how I hacked the tripod to make it perfect for me. What tripod do you use and why? What are your requirements for a tripod? ---------------------------------------------------------

I am usually a wide angle shooter. In the decade I have been shooting, my lenses have been getting wider and wider. (So mad that FujiFilm is making an 8-16 that you can’t put filters on. Why @fujifilm_northamerica , WHY?) When I took this shot with a 105mm lens, I realized there is a whole style of shots I am missing out on. I’m noticing that both Sigma and Tamron have 100-400mm lenses that are affordable but I am not sure which to pick? Which lens should I go for, Sigma or Tamron? And why?

I know what you’re thinking. That Brooklyn guy is posting more infrared shots and turning the leaves red. Incorrect!! The Pepsi Cola sign doesn’t seem to be that bright but with an exposure at a fraction of a second, the leaves and grass are turned completely red by it! ---------------------------------------------------------

So many things to say about this photo. 1. This is what a Manhattanhenge SHOULD look like. Clouds throwing warm light everywhere, the sun peaking between buildings. Don’t stop trying after the “full henge”. 2. Sunsets are amazing. They’re worth all the hassle it takes to shoot a great one. 3. Queens, I have to explore Queens more. Manhattan is getting a bit old. 4. Best things to bring when shooting: a tripod, a 10 stop ND filters and friends. Friends that will lend you a filter when you don’t have the one for the lens that’ll get the money shot, friends that tell not to leave the vantage point and to be patient, friends that’ll stuff their faces as much as you do afterwards and have you laughing all the way home!

If you haven’t been to Untermeyer Gardens, I’d suggest you visit. The place is full with lush plants and statures. Now regular photography may be a bit dull there honestly, but this place was made for two specific genres: portraits and infrared! ---------------------------------------------------------

New infrared filter: 830nm. It’s very dark and contrasty so it makes pretty good black and white photos. Perfect for Black and White Sundays! Leaves and clouds still show up really bright but skies and shadows are much darker. ---------------------------------------------------------

SWIPE LEFT: So after years of research and converting my FujiFilm X-T1 to infrared, I finally bought the FujiFilm 14mm F2.8 (which is wide and good for infrared) and filters to change the wavelengths/style of the shots. You’ve seen this already: without any filter, the camera keeps my skies blue but shows foliage as yellow/orange. But since the blue/orange color scheme is so overdone, I change it to something different and bolder! Still love both version so I posted them both as a gallery, let me know which you like better!

Remember way back when Manhattanhenge would awe and dazzle instead of disappoint because of the overcast clouds and fog. We got one more chance this year, Mother Nature! Don’t screw it up! ---------------------------------------------------------

Every time I used to see a boat, I would hear “Sailing” or “Dock of the Bay” in my head but thanks to @andysamberg all I can hear is “I’m On A Boat” by @thelonelyisland ! If you haven’t heard it, you’re missing out on the best feature by T-Pain EVER!!!!

Whenever anyone takes a picture of this clock, it’s always a close up. Why? I think it’s because it’s easier to get the details in the clock when you zoom in. When zooming out, the glare can hinder the view. I like the wide view so I just used a circular polarizer. Problem solved! ---------------------------------------------------------

You know once in a while I have to go to my favorite place, The Brooklyn Bridge! Everyone has that one place that they can’t stop shooting. What’s yours?
