ABOUT THE PICTURES
Page updated 5/19/2009.
I took most of these pictures with a 35mm lens which I bought used on eBay (then my girlfriend paid for it as a Christmas gift). Although the lens is technically 35mm, the actual perspective on a digital camera is that of a 50mm lens. That perspective is important because it's neither wide-angle nor telephoto. Telephoto images make things look flatter and closer together, which usually makes people look more attractive, and wide angles exaggerate depth -- the 50mm perspective does neither. It doesn't isolate a subject too much, but also doesn't take in so much that you can't find one. This makes it very versatile, a jack-of-all-trades, perfect for when I want to go out with only 1 lens (about 90% of the time) and if I want something with more aperture than a zoom (always). Regrettably, this lens doesn't autofocus on my camera. My fingers are crossed that Nikon designs one that can this spring.
I've been taking something of a break from photography because it's too cold outside. My limit is about 20 degrees Fahrenheit, without a wind chill. It hardly snows at all in New York City, and when it does, I'm always at work and it's melted by morning. I'm mostly taking pictures with friends and family until it warms up here.
Feel free to email me if you're interested in purchasing prints.
Please don't save images onto your computer, link to them, etc.
