Private workshop in New York!

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

Last week I had the great pleasure of welcoming Yana Nosenko, a young photographer from Moscow for an intensive one-on-one photography workshop.  We focused mainly on street and documentary practice, including one really fun, experimental day using off-camera flash and wireless triggers.

Day 2  /  Private Workshop


July 4th, who will save us?

Destination: Central Park, the great green heart of New York City.  Could the park - its meadows, boulders, lush trees and its flock of humanity - help us get a pulse on the mood of the city?

Celebration or lamentation?

Something in between?

Testing the Nikon D800

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

This week I borrowed an instructor D800 from New York Film Academy (where I teach) and did a bit of testing with it.  This shot was taken at f/2.8 using a Nikon 24-70mm zoom.  Normally I prefer to shoot with a prime lens, but we have yet to get some of those in our equipment cage.  Overall, I'm really happy with what I've seen: the files are incredibly sharp and I've had no issues with digital aberrations. I'm seriously considering upgrading from my current camera, the D700.
