While shooting at Silo City in Buffalo Michael and I were standing on top of one of the silos and I saw this shot. The silos were a major distribution point for grain to be transported by rail to the east coast. This is a shot of the rail yard all grown over.
This is another shot from the Buffalo Water Works. This amazing place has really drawn my creative side to the surface. I have worked these images to give a certain look. Harsh, contrasty, gritty with a heavy feeling. Everything in this building was meant to last 1000 years. You can feel the weight in this shot.
While shooting at Silo City, Buffalo NY, we had the opportunity to shoot some models in the environment there. This is one I did with heavy backlighting. I actually had fun doing this and may start shooting more people as a result. It’s been a while since I have photographed people.
This is an image made inside the Water Works building in Buffalo, NY. It was part of the weekend we were in Buffalo shooting abandoned grain silos. I used a slight HDR enhancement to give it the gritty machine look.
During our filming for a new Landscape Tutorial in Yosemite NP I took a chance and did a pano of a waterfall we were using as part of the video. This is a 8 image stitch. worked pretty damn good.
I just spent a week in Yosemite National PArk working on new Landscape Photography Tutorial for Luminous-Landscape. It was a tough week to shoot there because we had perfect seater fro tourists and not so for photographers. Sunny, bright and hardly any clouds. Never the less with William Neill’s help we made some good images. Here is one. I converted it to Black and white because it looked best. Shot with a 14mm lens to include foreground.
The building at Silo City are huge. They can be 12-14 stories some of them. This is a shot of the tops of as few of them from roof level of another building.
It’s been a week since I visited Silo City in Buffalo, NY. The location provided so many photo opportunities that I have enough good images to share for a few weeks. This is a shot made at Concrete City a location not to far from Silo City. This place is huge and we were there at a great time with great light and great shadows.
