For this sci-fi photoshoot, my friends Delaney Keith and Joe Leitess brought these characters to life as The Space Babe and The Cowboy. A real-life couple who are both actors, the casting was easy. Delaney and I had been discussing this idea for the last year or so, mulling it over and letting it grow. Finally this October, we were ready.
Has it ever happened to you that you visualized a drawing in your head and when the moment you turned those thoughts into drawings came, the pictures didn't resemble the ones in your mind?
I am going to write here about our inability to adapt to change. But wait, this is supposed to have an optimistic tone. OK then, I'll write about my hope that we will be able to adapt to the new way people see the world around them, as photographers.
The beauty in Street Photography
As an aspiring photographer, I am aesthetically drawn to the style, colors, and shadows of low light photography. There is just something about the way colors pop at night that has a magnetic pull to my eyes while also creating a sense of mystery and beauty at the same time.
Here we go again! Another music video in the books. This Halloween, Quinn Dorian released her new single Where’s the Party At on YouTube with a music video filmed (with the assistance of Josiah Smithe) and edited by yours truly! This project was hilariously funny and a blast to edit.
Growing up in Washington Heights, New York City, I had a few playgrounds: the subway train yards. the night clubs...and Hip Hop. My mom was Senior Art Director at Young & Rubicam ad agency. I wrote my first commercial with her when I was 9 years old and she wanted me to follow her path in advertising. But by the time I hit 14, I wanted to be a KING And I wasn’t asking for permission.
How does one become an angel? Whether you believe myth or lore. I believe I met an angel once.... it was the stars plucked from the heavens above that created his eyes, the gentle features that soften his presence. A body carved from god himself. Another clue may have been the grandiloquent expansive wings that framed all this beauty. More true than anything else, it was the selfless choices that reflected back into the mirror. The choices of love, compassion, and forgiveness that were diligently woven together with each feather that made his wings. That in turn made him fly.
Becoming the world
Guilty of sin
Look into my eyes. I’ve always been interested in photography and writing it’s always been a great escape for me. To lose myself in my writing or some photography I took to escape reality. To create another world or make it seem like it’s more than it seems to be. To create a hole new world or even bring a dream into reality. It’s invigorating the way we can see things how deeply we think things how a picture can be so emotional you can feel it scream. The depths of our words can be hypnotizing even addicting to read. The pictures that draw you in make you think. The art of it all the emotions that are drawn the complexity of it all in what we read what we saw. It’s magical how it touches our souls the story’s of a picture with no words at all. Things that draw us in to a world that we create a magical realm projected to our minds like a stage. We dwell on the moments and cherish them every detail we notice. When I’m feeling hopeless I write to get me back in focus. I created these photos playing with black and white and I really liked them. Despite my shy nature I wanted to show my friends. Even post them on social media so everyone could have a glimpse. So I did I usually use color in my pics. Yet there’s something y my black and white photos that seem so alive and without color just as bright. What a sight to be seen it’s like day and night. A musical symphony of photos of black and white. Every picture seems to come to life. The show of emotions growing. The intense feelings that we keep holding brought out by a photo that’s showing. The power in a picture without words yet the facial expressions glowing. Some how knowing just how they feel without being told. The story that are told by a photo. A picture that brings you to a new realm. A imaginary escape we’re we can dwell. How the photos come alive and what they tell. They can bring you to any place you can think. Ice skating rink to a boxing ring. Even a stage to sing or the day you wore your wedding ring. Then back to the studio to screen.Its the moments we capture that we cherish through out life.Our defineing moments that we are defined. The magical moments that stay with is in our minds. Were we learn we grow we gain experience we reflect on the most. So to you a toast for many more captured moments as we travel to the unknown. What we take With us what we know the pictures in our memories we hold close. The fraction of time as it goes and our pictures we grow we look back and see reality in a photo. The life of it all in a glance in a flash.The depictions of the past that we all want to grasp.And at to all I want to pass .the moments I captured cast out to you. Judge as we do. And Now with all the hype tell me what you think. Are they terrible or are they fine ok or sublime. So without a due here are mine. I hope you like my little creations of stills in time. Oh I thank you for taking the time out of your life to a part of mine. Thank you from me to you.... THANK YOU!!!

My closest friend in high school, Denis Choi, and I left school after an event that we had barely paid attention to. I listened when the owner of a non-profit went up on stage to speak about getting water to children in Nigeria, but my focus strayed as teachers spoke about the necessity of putting your studies first. As we skipped school afterward, Denis had described that his experience in the event was similar. We headed to an independent art supply store in Harlem, since it was one of my favorite spots, and I had showed him the back area. We walked through the narrow corridor adorned with murals and plants, and spoke about our hopes for the first along while criticizing one another usual escapades. Denis and his girlfriend’s anniversary had just pasted, and I watch the commemorative jewelry he got shimmer in the summer sun.
It's fun to take pictures.
This is an unmistakable fact. When you release the shutter as you like and look back and take a picture of something that you like, there is the catharsis that you can't say anything about. and High Quality Images
Nowadays, posting all travel photos with your family are over in social media. Not everyone is into posting every photo, as privacy is essential for them. If you are one of them who wants to showcase your travel photos but in different ways, then there are more unique ways to show your travel memory. One is converting it into canvas wall art.
I have been thinking…I love blue color. Why do People Think Blue World is a Good Idea?
Your Blue World May Never Works Out the Way You Plan.
