I'm a photographer, screenwriter and video producer based in Brooklyn. This is my blog. Hi!
  • Another photo with my new toy. I’m not working on a calibrated monitor at the moment so forgive the color. #50mm #takumar #f1.4

  • I think I’m developing a fetish for vintage lenses. This was shot #50mm #takumar #f1.4. It’s super contrasty and tack sharp when I get it in focus.

  • Check out this short documentary I produced about Justin Crocker’s graduate thesis project - a 3D woven chair.  He is a super talented and insanely smart designer.  The project itself was shot at Pratt Institute over the course of a few weeks this past spring.

  • I’ve been at it again with my Schidt Opticks FF58.  I bought the version that has the adjustable aperture so the last two shots are stopped down a little.

    I reall do love this lens.  Mostly because it has me excited about shooting with it, even a year after purchase.  I love it as a walking around lens, but it its a tad unpredictable so I also keep my  Canon 50mm close at hand in case I want to shoot something where focus is critical or I don’t want crazy orange highlights all over my shot.  I would love to see a version of this lens with swappable color casts.  I don’t think it’s possible as I was told by the folks at DSO that the pigment inside stays wet.

    Images were processed in Lightroom using VSCO film presets. I also adjusted color contrats and exposure..  

  • I don’t shoot a lot of weddings and when I do, it’s usually just for friends.   I have to admit that I’m really starting to enjoy shooting them.  In particular, I like being able to spend some time with the bride and groom doing an editorial style shoot.  I think it makes for some memorable photos.  Here are some of my favorite shots from Dalia and Eddie’s wedding.  That’s my son dressed as Prince Charming putting the shoes on Dalia.
