Shooting Weekend

Verrazzano Bridge.We had a good shooting weekend. Finally had a chance to take D700 into the wild and ended up with a good number of pretty decent shots. We started our Saturday with a short trip to Fort Wadsworth — a small National Park on the the Staten Island’s side of Verrazano Bridge. Besides the multitude of bridge shots I got several and what seems to be interesting perspectives.

Manhattan skyline.In the evening of the same day, Misha, Sasha, Alena and I drove to Hoboken for good perspective on Manhattan. We had to break a couple of minor laws to get into a good shooting location, but I ended up with some great shots from there.

Empire State Building.Out of all the shots that I took I still ended up liking the HDR processed ones much more. A little tip for this kind of photography is to set the camera to small aperture and slower shutter speeds. This makes the lights turn into stars.

Celebrity wave.And somewhere on Sunday Alena and I did some lighting experiments and ended up with this nice spontaneous celebrity wave kind of portrait. I wish it was taken somewhere out on the street having a non uniform background.
