The High Line with Bergen County Camera

I had the honer and pleasure to lead a photowalk at one of my favorite places in the Big Apple, the High Line. The photowalk was arranged by Bergen County Camera and sponsored by Olympus. The day was slightly overcast which, for me, means Black & White. All of the images were shot using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. A favorite style I like to employ on an overcast day is using “Dramatic Tone”. This is a mode option built into the camera (most of these shots used this mode).

Hopewell Furnace

Hopewell Furnace is a restored iron plantation built in 1771 and is a national historic site located in Berks County, PA. I have always been intrigued by this place. As a young boy, I remember my parents taking me here. I have photographed this place before, but never in the middle of winter. The day was very cold and filled with periodic rain, sleet & snow. Not the ideal conditions for a photoshoot, except that it is great for not having many people in your pictures. All of the images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II.

The images from the previous Olympus InVision Photo Festival post were mostly from the Sunday workshop. Here are a few more from the Southside of Bethlehem. The following images were taken at the Book Store, Machine Shop and the Cathedral Church of the Nativity:

Sunset Beach Water Tower

A few weeks ago I was in Cape May NJ. We were working our way towards Sunset Beach. The plan was to get some shots of the abandoned water tower. I thought it might be a 30 – 60 minute shoot. It ended up being a couple of hours. I was quite amazed with the place. It sits on a Magnesite plant that was active during WWII. The plant was used to make Magnesite which was used to make steel among other industrial supplies.  All of the shots were taken with my Olympus 7-14 f2.8 lens. The location begged to be shot with a wide angle lens and processed in B&W.

Main St. Bridge

I went to Northampton, PA with the intent of photographing some ice flows in the Lehigh River. However, there was little to no ice flow to be seen. But I was treated to some nice reflections and a sunset. The shots were taken on the east side of the river looking northwest from Canal Street.

Mercer Museum

This past weekend I traveled with the Lehigh Valley Photography Club to the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA. I have never been here before and I must say this is an amazing place. The building and the artifacts are just incredible. You could easily spend a full day here. This was my first travel with the LVPC. They were a great group of people and everyone was extremely nice. I look forward to the opportunity to do it again.

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.

Independence Day at SteelStacks

I spent the 4th of July at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA. It is an incredible venue for so many things. Especially photography.
