Wow , here it is , finally getting out to shoot again .
The 1st shoot I have done since the stay at home order March 20th . This day I met with a ballerina, Hiroko, from Japan to do a shoot in the south street seaport area of New York City .
It was a nice day , sunny , but not to hot and we went to an area in between some buildings to begin the shoot and afterwards found that we were locked in . Thankfully we were able to open the locks on one of the doors to get out . ( without having to break the door) afterwards , headed over to the east river and then up to a pier under the Brooklyn bridge .
I guess the shoot lasted about 2-3 hours , but , we did some walking and talking throughout the time . Normally when I’m in NYC shooting , I’m not in any rush and just try to have a good time and this was a fun shoot and pleasure to work with Hiroko , not to mention , happy to be in the city again .
My equipment for this shoot was a canon 5D mark III and though I brought 35mm , 50mm and 85mm lenses I tend to just use the 50mm 1.8 lens for my shoots . I also always bring a “changing “ station for the models or dancers to have a private area to change clothing .changing station That’s a photo of my changing station , it folds up nicely and easy to carry at the shoots . As far as other equipment, I only use natural lighting . 1. I don’t want to carry around more equipment then I need too . 2. I need to work on my lighting photography, I’ve only did it minimal times . But anyways back to the shoot with Hiroko , here are a few of the shoots we got together at our shoot .
