Portrait: Booshiee Valentine's Day


It was an honor and a privilege to photograph Booshiee at my JDP Studios recently. We did various setups throughout the studio.

As today is the last day of February, I thought it would be cool to share Booshiee's Valentine's Day Portrait.

Trinidad + jPhone

During my stay in Trinidad earlier this month I used both my Canon 5D MkII and my jPhone to capture the beauty that is Trinidad. Below are images solely captured with my phone as those are the easier images to upload at this time.

This is me on the road to Macqueripe

During my photo walk I found some beautiful plant life

This bamboo pathway was amazing.

The beach at Macqueripe (really feeling this postcard look)

The beach up close

I found this little building view on the side of the road


I climbed on top of an abandoned building to get this shot

Portrait: Fashion Kelly


As I previously mentioned I had a great photo shoot with Kelly.  The first shot I shared of her on the blog (Miss Kels) was a beauty shot. 

Because I have such a variety of images to choose from, I decided to select a portrait with more of a fashion look.  Tell me Kelly is not killing in this one too.

You go girl!

Portrait: Genesis


Yesterday I visited The Elements Church in the Bronx to celebrate their first service in a new, bigger space.

It was such a joy to capture the joy of that service with my camera. One of the gems was of a young girl named Genesis. As I looked at the portrait in color I clearly imagined Genesis ten to twelve years in the future with headphones on and writing. Like her parents she definitely has that gift for creativity.

I crafted this black and white portrait to give it a more timeless feel.

Portrait: Comic Wydna Lyn


One of the dynamics of photographers is we have so many photos that it usually takes a while before we process them or even look at them. I finally decided to finalize my Christmas 2011 images.

Of course my extended family is huge so we had a great gathering at my parent's house. With only a 35mm f2 lens in hand, I photographed our Christmas Eve celebration. For whatever reason I did not want to use a flash (Note to self: Use a flash next year).

As I was going through the images I decided to grab a cute picture of my cousin and give it that urban fine art process. Behold the newest member to the family...Miss Wydna Lyn.
