Throwback Thursday:

The Chasing of Golden Hour

 

Originally Shot: Summer, 2013

Models: Erke Roosen, Marlies Bell, Shayna Craig, Jesse Rodriguez, Shannon Lower, Al Patrick Jo

Location: Financial District

 

One of my favorite "stupid human tricks" is accurately predicting how much useable sunlight is available. No, seriously: half the time I can't articulate it, but judging by length of shadows, position of the sun in the sky and just a good gut-feeling, I can tell you how much time is left before sunlight's completely useless with a five minute margin for error.

You wanna learn how to do that? Spend most of a summer armed only with your camera and a buncha people willing to hop in front of it as you're learning, with an almost desperate fervor, how to shoot with just natural light.

I can't lie: it was a lot of fun. So much fun. I made a lot of friends through this project, friends that are near and dear to my heart, still. I stretched my photographic muscles. And, it was so, so warm.

New York's having a good and proper winter this year, and I'm not complaining. I like my seasons to behave. And, winter's supposed to be cold and snowy and kinda miserable. But, that doesn't mean that I can't think of warm, summer evenings; the shots I captured; the friends made; and the mad, passionate chasing of Golden Hour.
