Fish-Eye in NYC: Using my newest lens!

My fish-eye lens was shipped just in time for Nathalie and Michael’s Manhattan photo shoot.   Kris and I arrived a little early for the shoot and caught a few images in the city on our way to meet them.  I love the wideness and distortion of the lens, and the clarity, too.  It’s so much fun to use!!!

^here comes the sun 😉

^ speeding taxis and the Beatles, love love love.

And speaking of love, here is mine– see him in the top right?  That’s how tall he really is, ha!

Shout out to Kris: my husband, my best friend, my business partner– the absolute best!  Without him I would not be able to do what I do!

Beautifully distorted. Reminds me of the never-ending curvature of our universe as well as our own reality in some sense.

Sharon & Andrew: Philadelphia Engagement Photography

The first time we tried to meet for their photo-shoot we were met with 60mph winds.   The second time we settled for 20mph, a bit chilly but I like the way it moved her hair in a few of the shots, just gorgeous.  Andrew is from Philadelphia, Sharon studied English at Penn and fell for Philly (and Andrew).  They enjoy walking downtown– a favorite hang out for them is Jack’s Firehouse, which is an old firehouse converted into a restaurant.  Andrew was even a bartender there for a bit.    Like most couples, they were referred to me by newlyweds that were happy with my work, in this case, Becky and Nick.  

^ Sharon, your smile is absolutely stunning, and Andrew those eyes, wow!

^ Their love defies gravity 😉

^ Just something Sharon likes to do

Catch her if you can!

Chillin’ while the traffic speeds by

Jack’s!!!

^ Their standard

I’m looking forward to your wedding at Philadelphia’s Glen Foerd Mansion on the Delaware River this spring!

Lisa, this is my neighborhood! And you shot it really, really beautifully. The light on that shot from the museum steps is incredible. Great work!

KateMarch 13, 2011 - 9:06 pm

Hey, I love the b/w bar shot. Just out of curiosity: fill flash on the couple, good lighting, or a composite of shots?

I love your style.

What fabulous photos of a young, caring couple! I anticipate an extremely wonderful wedding which will be happening soon. Thanks for sharing these scenes with me. Great photography!! Regards, Wilson

Thank you!!! Kate, I used the natural light from the bar and waited for the light, her expression and people background to be right, then snapped. 😉

Donating Pieces to Library Art Auction

If you know me, you know I love libraries.  This Saturday at 7pm there will be a benefit for Shippensburg Public Library’s building expansion campaign.  It will include food, dancing, drinks and art!  I have donated two of my best selling pieces in hopes of raising some funds to a cause that is very near & dear to me.

“Perspective”  I had this especially printed on canvas for the event.

“Under the Crabapple Tree”  Is custom framed and matted and one of my all-time favorite shots

For more information, visit www.paintshipred.com.  I would love to meet you there!
