“I’m gonna have to see your ID…”

If I’ve learned anything from reactions to MomentJunkie submissions, it’s that the world likes children with alcohol. Out-adorable this. — Lens: Nikon 135mm f/2D DC Camera: Nikon D3 BACK TO TOP | CONTACT ME

Review: LitePad HO+

Specs and Ordering Info: Daylight Balanced Tungsten Balanced On its face, the LitePad HO+ looks as simple as a photographic device could possibly be. Essentially, it looks like a ceiling tile that lights up: And in practice, that’s what it is — and it’s brilliant. The team at B&H was giving me a tour of […]

Isolated Love

This is just about as extreme a “Brenizer method” pano as I’ll probably ever do, using sixty-two frames from the exotic 200mm f/2 to bring a three-dimensional feel to a nice day in Central Park.

Remember the Cold?

One month ago, New York was cold. Two weeks later, it was baking. Welcome to our lack of spring. This scene was captured in-camera with the “motion-panorama” feature on the Fuji X100.

My girlfriend, a fantastic modern dancer who performs at the Metropolitain Opera among other places, can spot dancers as they walk down […]

No … wait!

One of my reasons for launching Moment Junkie was to affect the conversation of wedding publishing — that pictures other than stylish portraits and showcasing centerpieces were important enough to publish, since they are the heart of a wedding. I’ve had a number of photographers say “shooting for Moment Junkie” has changed their priorities, and […]

Depth of Feeling

There’s shallow depth-of-field, and then there’s this — Brett’s calculator shows this to be the equivalent of an 80mm f/0.8. But what kept bringing me back to this photo is Lindsay and Ron’s connection to each other, clear even in silhouette apart. — Lens: 30-frame “Brenizer method” panorama with 200mm f/2G VRII Camera: Nikon D3s […]
