PHOTO: Capturing the Magician

We made portraits of magic man Luciano Schipelliti up in my studio over the weekend. Nikon D800E using an 85mm 1.4 lens at F10, 1/200th at ISO 100. One single Prophoto light with Magnum reflector and grid at upper right. He literally made objects float, like this card, during the shoot. That’s not photoshop. That’s a real floating card.

PHOTO: October Skating at Rock Center

They’re skating already in October. Didn’t this year fly by? I’m already reading commercials for Christmas that will hit the air in a few weeks and it’s still not yet even Halloween. I’ve only skated here once a long time ago. It’s pretty terrific when it’s only moderately crowded like this below.

At 10th and 23rd in NYC, the Half King is good eating. Go to the back room to sit under the glass ceiling.

Panoramic Photo: Cliffs at Montauk

This is another test of embedding a pano photograph on our own blog. Go ahead and drag your mouse left and right. Now that I figured out all the bugs, we can make new ones all the time. This was a very, very cold sunrise on the cliffs at Montauk.

Panoramic Photo: Rogers Center 2006, a Moment Frozen in time

Panoramic photos are fun! You can pan left and right and move around inside. We just finished a tedious move of our blog to a host where I can host the pano photos myself instead of relying on website that keep going out of business. Here’s a little moment in time from 2006 in Toronto. Nothing major happened, it’s just a test of the new feature. Well that’s not exactly true, all these people (30,000 of them) are getting together next week at our house to catch up.
