Shot from Jersey city last night  4 Shot Pano of WTC  Tribute Lights
Very sad to hear this was the last year the lights can be viewed. Every year I would spend a few hours photographing the lights and have a great time meeting new people doing the same.

This year I ran into a lady that worked on the 62nd floor of WTC and narrowly escaped with out any injuries. Her and a friend come out to this spot in Jersey City every year to celebrate her "rebirth" as they said jokingly.
Also met a fellow photographer that was shooting some 4x5 large format film doing 6-8 min exposures in B&W. It was great to talk with him about his technique.

I put two slide plates on top of each other, one going left to right and the other back to front. I mounted them on my camera/flash bracket. This allowed me to get an almost perfect rotation of my nodal point. This will let you do some photos like this where you have object like railings close to you without them distorting when you combine the photos. I mounted a wooden skewers vertical in front of the camera and paned the camera left and right keeping an object in the far background in the same place relative to the skewer. Hope I didn't make that to confusing. Better than having to spend 500.00 on the ones that are made to do the same thing

Introduction

As a self-taught photographer with a passion for portraiture inspiration started with the work of some of the greats Joe McNally, Sandro Miller & Irving Penn. Soon after purchasing his first DSLR he trained by trial and error with a small studio lighting kit and local models. He pushed himself to learn every aspect there was to making a great picture. From composition to lighting to retouching and compositing.

Landing his first part time gig as a realestate photographer for a small developer in Atlanta he began to devote all his time and energy to become a fulltime freelance photographer.

Mike currently resides in NJ where he is freelancing and living his dream working on personal projects and other gigs......
