DIAMOND CITY
Do you like night photography? For me night is a perfect time to wonder around and try to find a good location to shoot and to unwind from the day job hustle. Being able to find a remote and peaceful spot in the big city is a tough task but every now and than we get lucky. This is one of those spots where you can sit down and watch the night fall and the city lights come alive while still have some peace and quite. What do you think?

SLEEPLESS
What is your favorite shot of last year? I have a few but this one is in my top 3. It is another shot from the top of the Hard Rock Hotel here in Chicago. I was blessed with this opportunity and after a hard day of work I had a sleepless night shooting one of the Chicago’s finest vista. Big shout-out to the hotel stuff for allowing me the access to this room. So what do you think?

HOUSE AMONG CLOUDS
Do you plan your shooting? For me it all depends but most of the time I do. For this particular location it took me 6 months since the first time I saw the edited photograph to the moment I actually found it and than I decided to wait another 2 months for the snow to fall so I can try to capture what I envisioned in the beginning. I was praying that by the time I get there after the snow fall I will manage to catch the trail without any footsteps on it. Luckily I was there in the right time. What do you think?

AT PEACE
Any winter shots yet? I’m continuing in the same spirit with this post and showcasing the winter landscapes from my neighborhood. Again minimalistic BW shot with just a few elements to simplify the composition and emphasize the contrast in the frame. What do you think?

IN COLOR
Do you like shooting long exposure? For this post I decided to go that road again. This time it’s an indoor shot of the wall mural and a person passing by, taken using hand held shutter drag technique. It’s also one of my favorites since this mural was removed shortly after. For those of you who are not familiar with this technique I used, in this case Olympus camera with un matched in body image stabilization, allowing me to slow down my shutter speed to the acceptable setting and to hand held capture this person moving trough my frame, having the perfectly sharp shot. What do you think?

MATCHBOX
Do you like shooting cityscapes? This shot was taken from one of the best city sky decks in Chicago. It’s been a while since I posted something from Willis Tower so for this post I revisited and edited the shot that I was very excited about the first time I took it. To get the birds eye view-reflection combo of the city, without the life threatening stunts is only possible to achieve from this vantage point. So what do you think?

DARK MIRROR
Do you have a favorite subject to shoot? Here is one of many attempts to photograph the famous Chicago Theater from a different perspective. This balcony was available for a visit during Chicago's open house event last month where we had the opportunity to visit many more, usually closed for public, locations. The cityscape and the " Chi" sign are here reflected on the glass table. The blu-red colors are used as a symbolism and in the same time to draw the attention to the subject. What do you think?

SIGNS OF CHANGE
Do you have a favorite season of the year? I personally like the change they all bring. This frame was taken this summer from the Lincoln Park here in Chicago. I was intrigued with the idea of shooting this location in infrared. Everything was coming along nicely that day and I ended up with a few frames that I really like. After six months spent in the city, I must say that I’m starting to enjoy it more than I expected. The ever growing list of favorite people, places, corners and views is very inspiring and I’m looking forward to every change, every new season and the new discovery that is about to happen. What about you?

IN THE AIR TONIGHT

“Well I remember, I remember, don't worry, how could I ever forget
It's the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, oh no you don't fool me….”

UNEXPECTED
As I walk around town, I always look for potential spots to take photos. I look for sunrise, sunset, and everything in between. I have passed this location numerous times waiting for something interesting to happen. I knew I had to be there when the conditions are right. This evening was special and moody, and I was anticipating a change in the sky after a great storm. I knew I had to find a shelter and wait. And than it finally happened! What do you think?

WAY OF LIFE
How did you spend your holidays? I’m honoring my celebration today with this interior shot from the oldest Orthodox Cathedral here in Chicago. I went there just a few days before the celebration to avoid the crowds and get the shot with all the decoration inside the church. For those of you who are not familiar with this later Christmas celebration, Orthodox are having the celebrations 13 days later because they are following older Julian calendar. So for everyone that celebrates the Christmas today I wish you a Merry Christmas!

REAR WINDOW
Recently I had and opportunity to have access to two rooms in the Hard Rock Hotel here in Chicago. It was one of the things on my bucket list since I moved here and I’m happy that I got the chance to get the shots from this location the way I wanted. This particular view was very interesting because it reminded me of the movie Rear Window. An interesting urban living story. I opt for this frame because it showcase not just the grand city architecture but also urban living. It is almost like watching the ant farm in my opinion. It is beautiful and scary in the same time. What do you think?

KINDLE
Are you excited for the holidays? I sure am! This is by far my favorite time of the year. Hanging out with close friends and family, having some drinks! Pure fun! This market is one of those kind of public places where you can gather around and have a warm Christmas drink while still in the heart of the city. Very festive place so I had to sneak in a few shots and try to showcase that festivity and crowd. What do you think?

DAY FOR NIGHT
Do you like silhouettes? When ever I see one I feel curios and I start wondering what is behind that unknown or in this case know shape in the distance. I feel that the cities for me in way will always be a “silhouette”, they always makes me curious and they always makes me wonder. What do you think?

GARDEN OF EDEN
Do you like to shoot landscapes? This Is one of my favorite spots here in Chicago. Since there is not that much opportunities for me to shoot landscapes in the city I often venture to this botanical gardens. I’m always very excited to visit and photograph this place under various light conditions. Today was very cloudy and cold day. It wasn’t crowded because of the Thanksgiving holiday so I seized the opportunity to take some photos without any interruptions. Due to the lack of color and contrast infrared was my choice for todays shoot. It helped with both in my opinion. What do you think?

Finally weather and time matched again! Flight #2 & #3, trying to shoot as cinematic with the Mavic as possible. Cannot wait for the NDs! ¿Thoughts?

ANCHORED
I usually don’t post two photos in a row with the same subject but this event was very interesting and rare so I had to find a different location and get one more shot. The color cast from the peer lights was to harsh and the colors did’t work as on the previous shot so I decided to go BW in this case. What do you think?

EPILOGUE
Let me start this post with one question: Do you ever think about how often do you do things that are out of your comfort zone? The few of you who are familiar with my work know that I don’t tend to fit in one style of photography. I find that while not shooting and editing in just one style I tend to work better and get more ideas that way. There is a ton of people who will disagree with this philosophy, but I personally like it. My work is more a collection of different feelings from different moments rather than a collection of landscape-cityscape, BW-Color, color theme, editing style etc. photos. So let me now finish the post with one more question: What do you think about it, right or wrong?
