I’m like the proverbial shoemaker without shoes. I spend my time documenting other families’ lives, but rarely do I have the opportunity to photograph my own family. This is one of those rare times when everything came together – weather, free time, hanging out with the family, and having a camera in my hand.
First beautiful day in a while – we decided to checkout melting ice on the river.
How do you do an bird’s view shot of a large crowd of kids during a balloon fight at a Bar Mitzvah party? You climb a 10-foot ladder. Don’t try this at home, kids…
Photo of me on the ladder was taken by Jenny Karlsson of Jenny Karlsson Photography.
I decided to go to the North Side at 6 AM to get some night shots of Pittsburgh on black and white film. All these photographs were shot on Kodak 400CN film with a Canon Elan 7E camera and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Some of the exposures were as long as 15 seconds. All photos are straight out of the camera – I did not edit them at all.
