US Navy's Blue Angles 2014

US Navy's Blue Angels this past Memorial Day at Jones Beach Long Island New York. Blue Angles are the best flying team without a doubt . Always great to watch. This image was taken with a Nikon D3200 and 70-200 mm 2.8 lens. Processed in Lightroom. First reduced the exposure over all for the sky, then lightened the planes, increased the contrast and boosted the saturation with the radial filter. A simple process.

Portrait of Bishop Andrzej in St. Agnes Cathedral


Another portrait session with Bishop Andrzej in St. Agnes Cathedral Rockville Centre NY. Bishop Andrzej is so much fun to work with. He really is just a regular guy. Very easy and patient while we fuss with lights, exposures etc. He always gives us all the time we need. Never a rush job.

By the way the lighting here is first, available light in the church. A main strobe light (White Lighting) in a softbox (Photoflex) to our left, an accent light with a grid to our right, way to the right, slightly behind Andzej. Both lights were gelled with a full CTO Rosco filter to match the tungsten available light. Exposure was f8 @ 1/8th sec. ISO 500. Camera was Nikon D7100, lens Nikon 18 - 200mm set to 18mm. Processing of NEF RAW file in Lightroom and some retouching by Liz in Photoshop CC 2014.

You can see Bishop Andrzej's Ordination photos on our web sites www.lizjoeimages.com and www.lizjoephoto.com. Links to these sites are at the top of our blog.

Bishop Andrzej's Ordination March 24 - 25, 2014

Liz and I had the honor of being chosen by Bishop Andzrej to be his photographers for his Ordination on March 24 - 25. What a great time we had capturing the images of this very important occasion. We had the opportunity to meet his Mom, Sister and Niece from Poland. We also met his High School buddy from Poland. We didn't want to ask about any High School stories. It was also great to meet His Eminence Cardinal Edward Egan, Archbishop - Emeritus of  New York.

All of the photos from the two days are on our web site www.lizjoeimages.com if you would like to take a look.
