Cruising over the MacArthur Causeway at night, top down, listening to great tunes and feeling the salty Miami air is pure bliss.
Night swim, anyone? 🌙 Rising 44 stories above Lincoln Park & Old Town, the @eugenieterrace rooftop offers views that are hard to beat. Can you just imagine yourself soaking up the moonlit sky with the dazzling city lights all around you? I sure can! @art.of.chi
It’s rare I get up for a sunrise but when I do, it is always worth it. And Saturday was no exception. Big thanks to @eugenieterrace for hosting a great morning and providing the outstanding views. A special thanks to @art.of.chi and especially @rosi.visuals for organizing a fantastic meet, as always. Great weather & views, surrounded by amazing company make for the best way to begin a day.
There’s no vacancy tonight at the Colony Ho.
I have a general rule that if I’m anywhere near the Flamingo at night, rain or shine, I must shoot it. 📸
“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them.” - Elliott Erwitt
I’m a big fan of personal photography projects. It’s a great way to not only grow your skills or try a new style but it can offer an opportunity to leave your comfort zone, as well. Maybe you have lost your creative mojo or you would like to set up a new challenge for yourself, there is a lot to benefit from selecting a personal project. And project-wise, it can be anything you want! From shooting with only one lens for a week or two, or focusing on a particular subject, or maybe even shooting every day at a certain time (blue hour, anyone?). . . I’d love to hear what are some photography projects you have done in the past... and did you find it beneficial? Did you set forth a timeframe or special objective for your project? Please feel free to share your project experiences or upcoming project plans and maybe this will generate some ideas for others.
Sometimes when a shot goes wrong, it ends up going right. This is an unintended zoom burst after my shutter closed prematurely. We were told no tripods on the CTA platform (hence the low view) for reasons I’m not sure I understand but ok.
Nighttime long exposures are a thrill. And that thrill is served up with a side dose of entertainment when capturing trails in South Beach. It can be a distraction when every other car cruising by is an exotic import being driven in what I like to call ‘Miami chill mode’.... I haven’t posted a trilogy in awhile. This next series of posts is all about light trails and I’m saving my favorite for the finale.💥
Chicago continues to rise. More buildings = more rooftops! 📸✨
Did you know that we spend an average of SIX years of our life dreaming? About 80% of people regularly dream in color, mostly pastels. What I want to know is, how many of us dream in neon?
Chicago knows how to show off its colors regardless of the time of year, but I am ready for some red and green. Here is a 10 second exposure from @360chicago last month on a ‘no tripod’ night so I improvised. Unbelievable views up there, always!
The bouncer thought I didn’t want him in my shot so he kept ducking out but when I told him that I was looking for a silhouette he was game. Will file this one under “most fortuitous collabs.”
Blue hour on Brickell.
Deco nights and neon lights.
The rooftop views were so incredible Sunday evening that is was difficult to put my camera away. It was one of those “just one more shot” kind of nights. Thank you to @art.of.chi and @dearlove photography for organizing and hosting a really wonderful meet.
Kicking summer off with a bang! Thank you @windycityspinners for hosting an epic meet last night. A special thanks to @lucioprestigephoto and @zo after dark for their creativity and light painting magic skills. You truly outdid yourselves with this one!! In frame: @xfrgmnts
The NBC Tower is a beautiful Art Deco building which does not get enough love on here.
