Sea Plane Views

Last week I had the chance to fly in a sea plane.  We took off from the East River and took the 35 minute ride out to Sag Harbor in the Hamptons to get a sneak peak at the conversion of the old Bulova Watchcase Factory into a new luxury condo project.  We flew pretty low, not more than 1500 feet, so we had some great views the whole way.  The paper published a gallery of my aerial photos online as well as a spread in print. Here are a few of my favorites from the trip. 

Panoramic Love

I just got back from Florida where I was assigned to shoot the New York Yankees Spring Training.  Spring Training is one of my favorite assignments of the year and I have been doing it for 8 years now.  It can get a little repetitive so the challenge, and the fun, it to try something new each year.  Last year I brought my tilt shift lens and had a lot of fun trying to look at things from a different perspective.   Ever since college, when I got a Russian made Horizon swing lens camera, I have been in love with panoramic images. Especially swing lens images.  So it was with great excitement I headed down to Tampa with my Noblex swing lens panoramic film camera and 20 rolls of Tri-X in tow.  You can imagine my disappointment on the first day of pitchers and catchers when I realized it was not working.  I was just so bummed out and now I need to find someone who can fix it.  Just to be nostalgic though, I dug out a couple of old travel photos I shot with the camera.  I can't wait to start shooting with it again (assuming I can get it fixed).  So check back in the future and be on the lookout for a new swing lens project.

Since I mentioned it, I figured I would put a gallery up of the photos I shot at Spring Training with the tilt shift.
