Yesterday was all about visiting Coney Island. And what an Island it is. I’ve been there before but never on a day where it was suspiciously quiet! Of course, it was a Friday afternoon and nothing was really open, but the beautiful day and the quiet was really unmatched. Would have been cool to ride the Ferris wheel though.
So I went with two friends of mine within the MFA Film and Animation Program (Fenway and Xin), who I asked to be my portrait guinea-pigs. It’s always nice to get to play with photography and find unique perspectives or just plainly shoot what you see fit. I also tried some techniques of which I wish I had a neutral density filter for my camera lens to do so… A long exposure during a bright sunny day can wash out your photo easily. I used a polarizer to help a bit, with some success. I did get back home with 800 photos logged and ran through them all today. After 12 hours picking what worked and what didn’t for a variety of reasons, below is what I chose to share.
I hope you enjoy!
