Belly of the Beast (post 3 of 3)

This is the final post of the images from the former Bethlehem Steel plant. This post will consist of images of rust or the oxidation process. It is amazing to see the various forms of art when you just look at small segments of this massive complex.

Belly of the Beast (post 2 of 3)

This is a follow up post from the one I did on Thursday. These Bethlehem Steel images are in the “E” Cast Floor within the Blast Furnace. Several images are of the “stoves”. A special thank you to my shooting partner and Bethlehem Steel aficionado Bruce Ward. He was kind enough to help me the the proper nomenclature.

Belly of the Beast (post 1 of 3)

Over a year ago I was afforded another opportunity to enter The Belly of the Beast (aka the former Bethlehem Steel Plant). I am breaking this into 3 parts. The first one consists of images of the inside journey.

Playing With Light

As my final post for 2014, I thought it would be appropriate to show some bright, colorful and festive images. Over the last couple of months I have been experimenting with Olympus’s new “Live Composite” mode. I have been extremely impressed. Enjoy and Happy New Year to all of you!

InVision/NMIH 2012 Photography Workshop

On the last day of the InVision Photo Festival I, along with Dave Rehrig, Ryan Hulvat, Bruce Ward and Rick Holt, had the opportunity to facilitate the photo-shoot at the National Museum of Industrial History. To say we had fun would be an understatement! Please check out the video by clicking HERE .

The Sleeping Giant

My friend and fellow photographer, Dave Rehrig obtained an image, while visiting Penn State which, we believe, was taken by Walker Evans. The scene was taken in South Bethlehem, PA. However, it wasn’t signed or noted anywhere. We both went online and couldn’t verify the photographer. In any event, we attempted to duplicate the scene and the first of the following images is my attempt at a modern day view of this place. While we were snooping around, I found a few other perspectives I enjoyed.

Bethlehem Tow Path

This past weekend turned out to be a perfect time for a spring hike in the middle of winter. I went to the Bethlehem Tow Path, which provides for great views of the blast furnaces of the former Betlehem Steel plant.

National Museum of Industrial History

A little over a week ago I had the opportunity to shoot at the National Museum of Industrial History (NMIH) located on the former Bethlehem Steel property in Bethlehem, PA. This was an incredible experience. The staff was extremely helpful during the couple of hours we were shooting. Their web site indicates their purpose is to tell the story of America’s Industrial achievements and the accomplishments of its inventors, managers and preserve the record of industry’s development and advancements from the middle 1800’s until present time.
