High-Key Post-Processing at the Guggenheim in New York City

Guggenheim Museum - New York, NY

Today, I wanted to talk about one of my favorite locations in New York City, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. While we’re not shooting it on our upcoming NYC workshop, I strongly recommend you take the time to visit the museum, for both the architecture and the art. The minimalist design by Frank Lloyd Wright […]

New Images – Cloudscrapers

Tuesday I had the opportunity to do a one-on-one photowalk with a woman that wanted a little guidance on some technical aspects, as well as compositional elements, of architectural photography. We had such a great couple of hours together and I think we both learned a few things! One of the benefits of teaching…it never […]

The Rookery Tour

After last week’s failed attempt to do the full Wednesday Rookery Tour, I had a chance to visit again this week. Luckily the tour took place and I managed to get a few images. Although the main purpose in doing the tour was to see the library for my The White City series, of course […]

The Palmer House & The White City Series

I planned to make a couple stops Wednesday to create some images for my series The White City. The Palmer House was my first stop as this was a very prominent hotel at the time with many notable guests of the 1893 World’s Fair staying here. Potter Palmer built the original hotel as a wedding […]

Attempted Rookery

After many, many weeks of trying to find time to make it to the Wednesday Rookery tour all the pieces finally seemed to fall into place today…I managed to get a sitter for my youngest, nobody got sick at the last minute and I didn’t have any obligations elsewhere…but it seems the universe had different […]

El Centro

Northeastern Illinois University’s (NEIU) new El Centro building has been on my radar for months. I first noticed it last summer while it was under construction, as it’s definitely a standout when driving along the Kennedy. Not only do the vibrant blue and yellow fins seem to move with you as you pass by but […]

Michigan Avenue in January

city of chicago

One final post from the weekend. Since I was all over the place and feeling aimless,  I thought I’d share three final, randomish, images from Michigan Ave. All in color, one street shot (what?!) and one that I’d consider a stock-like image. But, I was loving the dramatic light, and when there’s fantastic light it’s […]

Out of Practice…

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was wandering around Maggie Daley and Millennium Parks over the weekend for some much needed photography time. However, I was having a hard time seeing anything in a very interesting way and was just not feeling inspired, which was very frustrating. Especially since I haven’t had much […]

Winter in Millennium Park

I’ve been excited about the completion (or near completion) of Maggie Daley park for quite a long time. First, because it looks like the most amazing park for kids and second because I’ve really been wanting the BP Pedestrian Bridge to open back up. Yesterday I finally had some time to get down there for […]
