Using Newsprint to Promote Photography

Digital photography has a way of just sitting there on the hard drive. One of the things I miss about shooting film are the prints. Holding photography is completely different from looking – I wanted to print something, but I wanted it to serve a purpose. So, I thought a promo would be cool, and then I thought newsprint would be even cooler.

A Summer Day on the Coney Island Boardwalk

People watching is one of my favorite ways to pass some time on a weekend. You'd be amazed at what you can learn about human nature just by slowing down and observing people in public.

Recently, I've been doing more to  ensure I get at least 30 minutes of activity everyday – I take breaks from the desk more often throughout the day and will skip subway stops on purpose just so I can walk a few extra blocks here and there. Last week, I decided to walk home from work (from SoHo to Bed-Stuy) across the Williamsburg Bridge and turn the exercise into a photo walk.

Mobile Photography Edit Flow with TouchRetouch

It was morning and I was in the process of trying out the new Moment Lens Wide and I wanted to capture this scene—so, I sat down. At first, I was just soaking it all in - loving the details of this place. I was also waiting for the woman in purple and pink to move (no offense ma'am, those colors just don't go with the scene). I realized after about 10 minutes that she had settled in, so I took the shot.
