During my recent outing with some of the guys we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge for some night-time (DAYTIME!) and sunset shooting in Dumbo (facing Manhattan). While walking across the bridge, Bob Lussier and I got separated from the group and wound up on the Brooklyn side of the bridge by ourselves. We hung out for a while, finding different things to shoot. I noticed that Bob was taking a shot from this angle so I decided to steal his shot. Hey, that’s what friends are for, right?
Now here is the fun part. I know that Bob was shooting in this direction and what his goal was (because we talked about it), but I didn’t see his results. With that said, I have no clue whatsoever how Bob’s photo will look. That, my friends, is what makes this fun and exciting. Knowing that two photographers photographed the same place, same time and from the same angle, and not know that the two results have a chance of being identical or completely different.
Makes you want to see Bob’s result, doesn’t it?
The photo consists of 5 Brackets. I used Photomatix to create the HDR, onOne Software‘s Focal Point for the Tilt/Shift effect because I was shooting with a 24-70 lens. I finished up with onOne Software’s PhotoTools. If you interested in purchasing any of these products, I have discount codes available to save you some cash.
Thanks for reading and happy shooting,
Side note: I had no idea that Brooklyn had a sense of humor, but Brian told me about the welcome and leaving signs. When entering Brooklyn the sign says “How Sweet It Is” and when you leave “Fuhgeddaboudit”.
