Tales of the Great Allentown Fair

The following images are a collection of my perception of the life and stories of the Allentown Fair. In order to capture these images, it required me to first start a dialog with my subjects, and then after gaining their trust, I would take the picture. This requires one to step out of there comfort zone and try to become a small part of the “culture”. All of the images were shot handheld with the Olympus PEN-F and in many cases the exposures were in excess of a half of a second. I was only able to accomplish this because of the Olympus built in image stabilization system. One additional bonus from this shoot, is that it happened to be the day KISS performed, which provided some additional characters for the evening.

Paint the Night

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to run a workshop with Dan’s Camera City sponsored by Olympus, titled “Paint the Night”. I guess you can tell what the workshop was all about. We were fortunate that Steve Tobin, an incredible artist located in Quakertown, PA, allowed us to use the grounds of his studio. It was an amazing setup for doing light painting. As you can see we used multiple types of light sources from burning steel wool to Pixelsticks. It was a great evening with a great group of photographers. Of all of the images in this post, my favorite one is the last one. I call it “Kissing Angels”. I didn’t notice it at first. I discovered it after I downloaded it and saw it on my computer. It is actually part of a larger image. I have been asked if it was produced with smoke. The answer is no. It was done with a white LED light wand, in combination with the Olympus’s “Live Composite” mode.

A Foggy Night in Brooklyn

A couple of weeks ago I was in New York for the Olympus Visionary Summit. After dinner, a group of us decided to head over to the Brooklyn Bridge Park to try to get some shots of the Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges. Unfortunately, when we arrived it was socked in with fog. At first I thought there was no hope for any nice shots. The more I looked at the environment the more I liked what I was seeing. These bridges have been photographed many times. However, not with fog. You decide. I was quite happy with the results.

Happy New Year 2015

During the evening’s festivities, I snuck outside for my first images of 2015. Fortunately Mother Nature cooperated with a beautiful sky. Wishing everyone a Happy & Healthy New Year.
