Photos are not just light captured, they are stories preserved for the Generations to follow. Pictures don't lie, even if they "stretch" the truth sometimes.

This is one of our favorite couples. I say our because my wife likes them too. Usually my relationships with my friends are a one sided thing. So after a long but gratifying Palm Sunday walk and service, I decided I wanted to take a few photos of Colin and Nicole. Here they are. My peeps!

True Story. Tonight I came home from Manhattan with my daughter and I stopped by ARTs East New York to retake some photos for Erika Pettersen. I saw Luis who was inside hosting a poetry slam and I asked him if I could borrow 2 people for a second as “live props”. Well, I was still in uniform and the crowd was kind of street, so they must of thought I was some old man coming to crash the party, LOL. Luis knew who I was. He asked 2 brothers and they assisted. I am coming off a severe case of bronchitis so I could not stay in that area without being disruptive so I left. When I came in and got comfortable to start editing, I was sending Luis a message. While looking thru his photos I realized he did not have any high res photos of him hosting at the “Arts”. Immediately my artistic mind went into gear, I put on some sweats, got in the car and did a drive by. I asked him to pose for me under the available lights, which he did and then I asked him to do what it is he wanted to do. And these photos are the result of that. True Story. “Cause Pictures Don’t Lie”

Here are just a few teasers from a Press Conference with the Mayor and the Developers of a New Project in East New York and the Director of ARTs East New York, Catherine A Green and oh yeah, Assembly candidate Chris Banks.

Playing with a new toy, the Rouge Flashbender soft box diffuser. I really think I like it,

Here are some photos from the B&H Event: Using Small Flashes on Location Photo Walk to Herald Square The Teacher (they called him Speaker) Robert Harrington was outstanding. We all got a chance to use products these great products:
Rogue Flashbender XL Pro 

Phottix Luna Beauty Dish
Phottix Umbrella
Phottix Ares Triggers
I already use manual Cowboy Studios triggers so I was good. I ended up buying a Flashbender softbox cover cause I want my outdoor shoots to be as seamless as possible and not lug around a lot of gear. These are my photos so take a look and tell me what you think. I love learning photography.

Today while I was on my way to a workshop I ran into Louis Mendes hanging out with our buddy Bostick. I had to get this opportunity cause although Bostick is a stone throws away, I hardly see him anymore. Gotta get over to Pisgah to visit some of the people.

Today as I was driving the kids home I saw this brother in an alleyway I once used for a photo shoot. I saw camera in hand and him taking photos of graffiti art. I was on the phone with Christopher ‘Ace’ Williams talking shop when the grassroots photographer in me kicked in. Immediately I told Ace, “Yo, lemme call you back.” He said, “aiight E”. So I backed up the block and circled around. I did not mean to startle the brother, but this is what I USED to do, be s spontaneous photographer. I cannot let that side of me go away. So I rolled up on him, camera in hand and introduced myself. This is Ray, another local photographer. We swapped info, took each others portraits and went on our ways. While I was leaving I watched him climb thru a hole in a fence. I mumbled to myself, “YEEEES”. That is the way you do it!

This is my neighbor and first mentor Reggie. Back when I owned a Kodak bridge camera (A ZD8612) I used to love taking photos. One day Reggie saw me and pulled me to the side and said, “Lemme see that thing”. He looked at the controls and said to me, “You like taking photos?” I said yeah, it is cool. He put the camera on M and told me to try using that mode for a while. So like with all things, I am opt to learn new things, I left it there and started to listen to what he had to say. He then gave it back to me and I was on my way. A few days later, or maybe it was weeks, he called me over again and told me he had a book for me. It was Harold Davis book, the Digital Guide to Field Photography (http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Photography-Field-Guide/dp/076459785X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1395676042&sr=8-2&keywords=Harold+Davis+Field+Guide+to+Digital+Photography). It was the first book that caught my interest in a while and it taught the basics (from back in 2005) of the digital camera and composition and techniques. So I incorporated the things I read in that book to my picture taking when I realized it was going no where and I HAD to take the next leap, DSLR. That December (2011) I sprung for a christmas present for myself and bought  Canon EOS 1100d/t3. When Reggie saw this he was excited and a few weeks later allowed me to take his EF 100-300 on a daytrip with me out to the Hamptons. I was stung by the bug at this point. I can go on and on, but if anyone wants to know who started me off, this is the brother right here. I owe him a conversation EVERY TIME I see him. He and his wife were wedding photographers back in the day. It is great to give back and show the teacher how far you are going.

Saturday Night Was Shahmets’ 45th Birthday Party. (Although her Birthday was on Tuesday) We had a great time even though I was working the camera. Whenever there is a lot of positive energy and love in the air it makes for a great time. Happy Birthday Shahmet,

Pius’ Wife. Aubreys’ Mommy. Our friend. I am glad she is back in the swing of things. And now that Spring is near,  I KNOW a lot of us can expect to see work from our P.I.C. Founder of CLiCK photography by Sena and New Mommy, you better believe that we are going to be in for a few surprises for 2014.

Part 2 of a family session with Tia and her family. I am using a 107” backdrop this time. No more amputating limbs. I am growing people….

This is day 2 of the shoot with Christopher…#nice

Just a few from an ON SET shoot with Ace. I think we did good.

I put the call out there for anyone who wanted to go out to the beach in the snow. No one responded, except Felecia D. Saxton. So we head over to Coney Island and took some amazing shots for practice shots. Enjoy. Thanks Felecia.
