New on the Tangents blog - my love letter to the Nikon D810 and other high-resolution cameras:

http://neilvn.com/tangents/photographers-why-use-a-high-resolution-camera/
photographers: why use a high-resolution camera? The Nikon D810 (affiliate) is a camera that surprised me for how much I liked using it. Responsive AF. Super-crisp images because of the improved sensor and due to the lack of the anti-aliasing filter. Ergonomics. (I have big hands.) But I didn't think I would love the D810 as much.…

Thank You Neil! It is about time somebody would explain why the camera does matter. I am so tired of hearing the camera does not matter.

Boudoir photography - in the streets of Manhattan 
themes & context in boudoir photography - on the streets of NYC The model in this striking image is my friend, Jessica, a boudoir photographer. Her pose is intentionally this strong and assertive. The concept here (and other images that will be shown in follow-up articles), is part of an on-going project she had planned for a…

New on the Tangents blog:
Tips on posing people - instead of rigidly posing someone, adjust the pose in small increments.

http://neilvn.com/tangents/posing-people-tips-improving-portrait-photographs/
posing people: tips for improving your portrait photos Throughout the numerous articles on the Tangents blog, I'm often asked about how I go about posing people. I've described some of it in the article, adjusting a pose with incremental changes. Instead of a traditional way of posing, it's mostly a "feel" thing, looking at my subject…

Introduction

I’m a photographer based in Wayne, NJ, specializing in portrait, wedding and boudoir photography.

I also maintain a very active website for photographers. I teach workshops and seminars on photography. I have written two books on flash photography, of which one has been translated into Polish and Portuguese. This probably means I can describe myself now as being ‘internationally renowned’. I’ll take it. It sounds good.

I've used their services numerous times in the past few years. No hiccups, and always prompt. This time however, someone at Airpark Parking in Newark stole my 64 Gb iPod Touch out of the console of my car. (I'm still waiting for response from their management.)

I love their food. Some of the best Indian food I've ever had, anywhere. Their Lamb Rogan Josh is a Friday-night take-out regular tradition for us.

I often stop by at Unique to buy or rent gear. (It does help that the store is but a few miles from my house.) I've always been treated in a friendly and helpful manner by any of the staff. I also like that even the owner, Matthew can regularly be found on the showroom floor and is very approachable. Unique's prices are also competitive for the NJ / NY area, and they have a great range of gear on display and in stock. Oh, and have I mentioned that they rent out gear over the counter!? Pick up what you need - you don't have to wait for one of the large rental places to ship something out to you.

They've always had a professional business they run there. No complaints whatsoever. From the very first time when I went to buy a car, everyone there treated me with courtesy - from the lady at the front desk to the salesperson. (You'd think this would be an automatic thing, but my experience with other car dealerships like the local Nissan dealer and the Dodge dealership, would say otherwise.) Whenever I've had my car in for a service, I've always been taken care of fairly promptly.
