Just realized that twenty-five years ago today I spent the last part of Columbus Day afternoon and the early evening   with photographer Peter B. Kaplan on top of one of the Manhattan side towers of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Peter has them. I was assisting him. Even though  we had cleared it it with NYPD and FDNY and the other authorities, apparently someone called in that there were jumpers climbing the cables up so the  NYPD shut down  traffic from Manhattan to Brooklyn and they sent a crew to climb up after us!. when they got up to the tower they looked at all of our safety and camera gear and had a laugh. we all enjoyed the sunset . Fun times!

HEADS UP FOR U.S. FOLKS: Great deal on PocketWizards

PW has rebates on all of their transceivers going right now, including the <$100 PW PlusX (which is my favorite of all of the PW transceivers, FWIW). The rebates on the PlusX are only $15 (bigger rebates on the other models). But this brings the cost of a rock-solid, pro-level remote down to $85. Which is awesome.

Some people insist that the art of photography ends with the instant the shutter closes and that processing and post-processing using a computer and software somehow defiles the photographic image and makes it less than art.

I disagree.

I can't say I get a kick out of digitally processing and post-processing my photos but I felt the same way about working in the darkroom but I embraced it anyway. 

Along with editing (by which I mean selecting the frames that best express a thought, an idea, an emotion, and a sense of a specific "moment") , the act of photographing, and the craft of processing make up the three legs of the art of photography - from a photographer's end at least. After that is the crucial step: 
the viewer's imagination and emotions connecting with what they see in the photograph you present to them.

The photographer who printed diane Arbus' post-humous show, the one that made her an art world icon, discovered that she never dodged or burned when making her prints but used chemistry and development timing  in the darkroom to create the print she was after.

Ellis Vener is a working commercial photographer specailizing in high resolution industrial and corporaate imagery based in Atlanta GA (USA)
Introduction
Ellis Vener  is the owner and operator of Ellis Vener Photography, a  photography studio  based in Atlanta Georgia. Ellis Vener Photography specializes in creating high resolution, high definition photography  for corporate and industrial clients. I have been in business, first in Houston and now Atlanta, since 1984.  We travel the world working for great clients.

Beyond making beautiful photographs I like working on assignments where I get to meet the people who are shaping the world,  explore how they are doing it, and the tools they are using to get it done. I like asking questions and then using everything I know about photography to make images that convey that to the larger world. 

   I also write about photographers, photographic techniques, and photographic tools, primarily for Professional Photographer Magazine.

The link to my continually updated  portfolio is  http://www.ellisvener.com and I sporadically blog at http://blog.ellisvener.com 

I am a fourth generation Texan and a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.

My inspirations are: 

Jay Maisel, for his sense of life, his intelligence and good humor, for his mensch-ness,  and his ability to put life into his photos. 

Richard Feynmann, for the depth of his applied curiosity, humor and his willingness to  color outside of the of the lines.


Jodi Cobb for her gentle persistance and inquiries into the lives of her subjects. 

Elliot Erwitt for being Elliot Erwitt.

Nice clean place, including the locker/shower rooms; great friendly staff & trainers too. Well lit both day and night - it never feels like you are i na fluorescent lit mall cave. Machines are kept in good shape too. Music isn't obnoxious or too loud. wide choice of cable channels if you like to watch TV while doing cardio work. It's a fine place to work out. Far superior to LA Fitness type places.
