A short and fun 25 second slow motion GoPro test clip from PMT Dance Studio’s Urban Renewal All Styles Battle featuring:
As expected, the GoPro really doesn’t perform that well in low lit conditions, especially at high frame rates; all of the sequences in this clip were filmed on the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition at 120 fps. However, I was able to get some shots at angles that I normally wouldn’t be able to get with a traditional camera. I’m doing a series of tests before embarking on a major GoPro multi camera project. Stay tuned for more to come… Enjoy!
Today marks the one year anniversary of when Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on NYC, and we’re still going strong. It felt very apocalyptic, haunting, and eerie afterwards, and it’s a time that I will never forget. I’ve met people that literally lost everything, yet they manage to live life with an incredible sense of resilience.
1. A haunting and eerie Manhattan skyline the night after Sandy devastated NYC, leaving millions and much of lower Manhattan powerless for days. This image was published by NBC New York and exhibited at Photoville NYC this year.
2. I rode my bike around Manhattan in the dark and took this photo in Soho. It was an incredibly difficult image to capture, took no less than an hour, and I still didn’t nail the focus.
3. A generator lights up this deli in the lower east side, in the midst of the darkness.
Late last night, I rode my bike around Manhattan with a tripod and camera taking photographs of the dark and eerie city. I felt like I rode through the Twilight Zone, and it was by far the most bizarre experience I have ever had in NYC. Life in lower Manhattan is completely different, as millions of residents are still without power and/or running water. This NY Times article describes the situation quite well.

My photo of a haunting, dark NYC skyline the night after Hurricane Sandy devastated NYC was published on NBC New York today and broadcasted live on their morning show. Millions of residents and the vast majority of lower Manhattan still remain without power.
I’m stuck in Nantucket and I miss this place.
