This week I covered a media summit after which there was a beautiful afterparty at Bathtub Gin. It was tough to shoot in that you could not move once the show started and it was very dimly lit. My camera, despite it being the fab 5D, had a hard time coming up with good readings.
BUT.. I found a way to grab a few images I liked a great deal. Here's one!
I will forever love the Latex Ball. Messages of support and camaraderie are spread throughout the night from the mic to the dance floor, people express themselves in whatever fashion fits and it goes all night.
I feel like awesome things are coming. Could be because I happened upon a particularly challenging image I wanted to capture the other night.. and I got it (burlesque dancer, inset). Could be because a photographer friend is coming into town this week for a day expressly so we can experiment .. could be because I was 1/2 second away from a great event job the other day that came to me (last second one of their regular photogs became avail).. could be because last night I was asked if I would be available to do a wedding in June. Actually that just birthed my next entry- weddings.
I think what has me so pumped is that this city, New York, seems to have opportunity brewing left and right. If you do what you love the work comes to you and what could be better than that? I will admit this city kicks my butt now and then but if you can get back up and dust yourself off the opportunities are still there to go after and come to you.
