With all the gloomy weather, I thought everyone might be due for some bright, exotic travel photos. Personally, I have been longing to visit some place sunny. So to get us all in a warmer frame of mine, I am sharing with you my India street photography from a trip that included Delhi, Rajasthan, and the Taj Mahal.
For those of you keeping track, I just returned from a trip out west. And though the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) annual conference in Las Vegas was ostensibly my reason for traveling, my real desire to get up and go was to visit Death Valley and the Mojave National Preserve. Come along with me and check out my travel photos.
As you may have seen from my Instagram (@KellyWPhotog), I am finally back from the wild blue yonder of Las Vegas. I was out west to attend the annual Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) conference. Not that much news to report, but I did manage to take some street photos while I was there. Here, dear readers, is my take on Las Vegas.
If you grew up in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area in Florida as I did, then you no doubt have fond memories of the Kapok Tree restaurant in Clearwater. This fabulous restaurant was as over the top as it comes, complete with its own garden of earthly delights. Sadly, the restaurant passed into culinary oblivion many, many years ago, but the ghosts of the past still remain…and I have the photos to prove it.
It’s the middle of the week, so I thought it might be a good time to share another dose of warmth from Florida. This time I am sharing with you photos from a recent trip I took to Caladesi Island and Honeymoon Island, both located just outside of Clearwater, Florida. Think warm thoughts, New York!
Happy new year, everyone! As you can tell from my Instagram (@KellyWPhotog), I am still on vacation in Florida. As such, I have been slow to get back to the social media grind. I thought I might ease into the regular blog schedule by sharing a few photos from Florida with you.
I have an engagement shoot in September on Governors Island with my fantastic clients, Vanessa and Nathan, and so I decided to take a trip to New York City’s most overlooked oasis. Here is what you need to know for your upcoming photo shoot on Governors Island.
Wednesday provided a much needed break from the rain and humidity, so I decided to celebrate with an adventure to Dead Horse Bay. Not your typical way to spend a day off, but a fascinating lesson in NYC history nonetheless. Find out how this beach got its name and enjoy photos from my trip that started in the Far Rockaways and ended in Coney Island.
Let’s get your weekend off to a fashionable start, shall we? As promised, I am sharing with you photos from a second fashion shoot I did — this time in Chinatown, NYC. I have been wanting to shoot in this part of town for years, and thanks to model Amanda, the photos finally became a reality. There’s just something about the fact that when you are lost in the deepest part of Chinatown, it feels like you have been completely transported to Asia. Our Chinatown in NYC is large enough to have its own zip code, and it is truly a marvelous place to explore.
The good weather is finally getting to the northeast, albeit slowly. It is time to take advantage of the sun’s rays, and in celebration I am sharing with you photos from a recent Florida fashion shoot in Tampa. These are outtakes from my headshot photo session with model Nicholas Kolasinski. We shot at golden hour – the best time of the day to get out your camera – and were blessed with plenty of sun flare. You never know what you will get when you shoot almost directly into the sun, as we were in Ybor City. In processing the photos I manipulated the white balance slightly, but pretty much what you see is what you get. With photography being such a technical sport, the idea of bringing chance into a photo via sun flare is exciting.
