Photography is all about problem solving. Solving the light: from adjusting the different elements of light capture within the camera to working with the various light sources or lack there of. And then portraiture opens up the need for posing the model and synchronizing them with the environment. It requires quick thinking, a sure eye, and trying things out, whether or not they will be successful in the end. It’s the challenge that I love the most every time I pick up the camera.
Under the dwindling sunlight on Roosevelt Island I had to opportunity to shoot with Will, a New York performer and model. Our schedules finally aligned and we had the chance meet up and shoot for a bit. Unfortunately, the sun setting so early made our encounter brief but successful as we sought creative light sources in order to take a few more photos before the evening was over. The little island in the East River is one of my favorite City hideaways and made for a great shoot location. As always it was an amazing visit to New York, even if it was brief.
