October 27 -29, 2011 was the PDN PhotoPlus expo at the Javits center, in New York City.
On Thursday, Oct., 27th, I went on a photowalk with by RC Concepcion and the founders of 500px. RC is one of the “Photoshop” guys from Kelby training, a great photographer and all around good guy. Evgeny Cheboterev, Andrey Tochilin, Jen Tse, and several others from 500px were there from Toronto and it was great meeting them. Well known wedding photographer and blogger Lisa Bettany (Mostly Lisa), was also there.
RC took the lead for our walk. We met at the Intrepid air space museum, where I shot a decent and impromptu HDR of the Intrepid. For those who are unfamiliar, HDR is a High Dynamic Range photo that combines three or more bracketed exposure to expand the dyanmic range.
From there, we walked to Times Square, stopping for shots along the way. RC got excited when he saw an opportunity to break out his Speedlights, to shoot a ATM near a corrugated steel door. I assisted by holding one of them as his VAL (voice activated light stand). Here’s the scene, but I don’t have a link to RC’s shot.
Here’s my shots from the photowalk.
