Not Photojournalism

Here are two photos where I tried to shoot black and white...but in color. I did not lower the saturation at all it was just a dreary day.

Don't ask.

Self portrait seen in the reflection of a bus window as it was driving by. Obviously shot from the hip.

No Photoshop here, what are the odds

This caught me off guard late last night, So I snapped a quick picture of it. I wish it was a bit sharper but oh well.

RePhil please

I took hundreds of photos of the post game madness last night at Citizens Bank Park, and all over Broad Street afterward. Here are a few of the ones I've edited so far. I wish I would have exposed longer here to capture more of the fireworks, but I've never attempted to shoot fireworks before this and really wasn't sure what to expect.

People took really wanted to get on the statue (of Mike Schmidt I think).

South Broad between Snyder and Oregon was definiteley the rowdiest place I encountered last night, there were huge explosions of fireworks that filled the entire block with smoke at one point. There were no fires.

Sasquatch is a Phillie's Fan?

The mounted police finally came at around 2 am to disperse the people farther north around Broad and Sansom.

Chants quickly changed from "Fuck the Yankees," to "Fuck the Police."

Photo Hunt

I figured I might as well put up some of my favorite photos from Friday.

I thought this was a funny moment because of the guy in the background.

This one was for Dr. Trayes..."Classmate in Action."

The cliche staircase shot.

Design Philadelphia

I took photos of the Design Philadelphia events this week, returning multiple times in the day to capture the variety of events that were held. The Artist's residence during the day, and the projection on the cube at night. I put them in order to give a little idea as to how the day progressed.

Onlookers have a look at the days work.

The curators cover the cube with a screen so the projection can begin.

A party was held in the Fairmount Park Welcome Center.

It was very difficult to capture both the cube and the people watching without the onlookers being blurry, or the cube getting blown out and appearing to be just a white box.

A Dj was performing throughout the event, but it wasn't until the end of the night when everyone who had been drinking at the welcome center decided to turn it into a dance party.

Street performers and construction workers

Here are a few of the shots I took for the features assignment, I had no intention of shooting street performers...but, I just happened to see run into quite a few last Tuesday.

I shot pictures of the band Sunn O))) last night, a very unique and extremely loud band(the floor was actually shaking at times). It was incredibly difficult to shoot because the only light source was candlelight and the entire church sanctuary they played in was filled with smoke...making the use of flash almost impossible. I wish some of these could have turned out better but I had to work with what I was given, including makeshift tripods made out of objects in my backpack. Many of them are slightly blurry and grainy, but I think they communicate the spooky feeling of the show better than sharp photos would.
