Apologies for the sporadic posts of late. I’m still trying to figure out how to balance my posting here with my Examiner column. I have some things in the works that hope will help me keep the blog going and maybe tie my various online exploits together better.
In the meantime, I’m going to start a weekly post here recapping some of what I’ve been up to elsewhere, particularly on Examiner.
There’s a lot to catch up on, so this will be longer than most will be.
To start, last week I went to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, above, to shoot an Oktoberfest event at co-sponsored by Brooklyn Based. That was a lot of fun and I got to play with some of the techniques I’m learning in my night photography class.

Beyond that, I’ve spent some quality time at Sputnik in recent weeks. First I went to shoot Brand Nubian and in the process got a pass to go back the next week to see Pharoahe Monch.

Finally, there was also the Big Apple Comic Con, which has grown tremendously from the days I remember in the basement of the Roosevelt Hotel 20 years ago. And with it, the costumed crowd has exploded. The costumes were wonderful and I spent my whole time there getting as many shots of them as I could. A bunch of them ended up featured on Gothamist.
That’s the last few weeks in a nutshell. For more details o what I’ve covered, check out the column on examiner.com, or even better, subscribe!
I hope to have a weekend wrap post up early next week about all the Halloween festivities and the New York City Marathon. Expect sweat and costumes on both counts.
