At a Breuer Window

r0084152

Seen at the Met Breuer, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, designed by architect Marcel Breuer. The building opened in 1966 as the Whitney Museum of art, and was taken over by the Met in 2016 after the Whitney moved to a new location. The windows are my favorite features of this building.

Commuter Dance

Getting to Grand Central Station in New York City early in the morning when the sun casts long moody shadows in the main hall is always an opportunity for a photographer. I watched the commuters dance around each other for 10 minutes or so, waiting for an interesting combination and ended up taking this shot with my trusty Olympus Trip 35 film camera loaded with Kodak Portra 400.

A Sauntering Silhouette

I find that a silhouette can reveal a person's energy. Here is another example taken at Wintergarden in New York City's Financial District. This man seems to have a very relaxed attitude about life.

Back to some shots with the Olympus Pen E-p1 and the 17mm pancake lens. I find the E-p1 to function very nicely in low light circumstances, and shooting RAW you have a lot of control over the dynamic range. In this shot the background was very bright while the foreground was fairly dimly lit. By adjusting the curves I managed to get detail in both areas.
