Interior Design Tip: Run with your Instincts!

Personal decorating style is often based on living with what you love; collection of paintings or Fine Art Photography, furniture styles, inspiring colors that you like, objects with a special significance or memory. Go with your guts and you won't often go wrong.

Iconic Panorama View of the New York Brooklyn Bridge

I went back to the Empire Fulton Ferry State Park right next to Brooklyn Bridge Park to photograph the New York skyline and take a panorama photography image of the Brooklyn Bridge. The image is comprised of 7 individual photographs taking in the wee hours and than stitched in photoshop to one large photography picture of the Brooklyn Bridge. The clouds added some additional interest and the long exposure times created the silky water effects in the East River.

Congrats to the Boston 2024 Campaign ~ Well Done!

Boston never disappoints and it's been another exiting time to be in town. The city successfully advanced in the run for hosting the 2024 Olympic Summer Games; now competing on the international level to bring the games into town. What a blessing for the city of Boston and wonderful success for the Boston 2024 campaign. Hopefully Boston can go all the way - congrats!

72 Hours of New York City Photography

On my last photo trip to the Big Apple I had a cruel photography schedule. I planned out some photo spots, had to attend three sport events and improvise in the mornings to re-adjust my photography timelines:

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/art-deco-architecture-chrysler-building-juergen-roth.html

Friday:
3:00 PM: Arrival in New York City and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Looking for parking. Find parking in a local garage - extremely convenient but pricy!
3:30 PM: On location at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1 for skyline photography ~ so worth it, amazing light!

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/big-apple-juergen-roth.html
5:30 PM: Falafel for dinner in Brooklyn ~ delicious.
7:00 PM: Check in to hotel in Queens ~ finally get some rest.

Saturday:
5:00 AM: Catching the sunrise and morning light in Brooklyn Bridge Park under the Brooklyn Bridge for some NYC skyline panorama photography ~ tired but happy I fell out of bed.

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/the-spirit-of-america-juergen-roth.html
8:00 AM: Breakfast in a diner on the Upper Eastside in Manhattan.
10:00 AM: Back at the hotel creating a massive panorama of New York skyline with the Queensboro Bridge as an interesting anchor that leads the viewer into the city ~ scared to stitch this one as it may crash my computer. 

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/headquarters-of-the-united-nations-juergen-roth.html
3:00 PM: Exploring Roosevelt Island which provided interesting skyline photography opportunities of the Headquarters of the United Nations and Chrysler Building ~ beautiful lighting for these historic landmarks.

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/iconic-new-york-city-chrysler-building-juergen-roth.html
5:00 PM: Driving to Long Island Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for my first sport event ~luckily did not get lost.

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/new-york-islanders-juergen-roth.html
9:30 PM Diner at the hotel.

Sunday:
5:00 AM: Capturing the Gantry Cranes with NY Freedom Tower and other local landmarks at sunrise. Disappointing lighting turns interesting and saved this morning shoot ~ two days in a row I make it out of bed in the wee hours ~ worth the wake up call!

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/gantry-plaza-long-island-city-queens-ny-juergen-roth.html
8:00 AM: Couple croissants and a high octane coffee in Queens ~ needed that one for the rest of the day.
10:30: Hitting the road to Hoboken Terminal. Find parking. Jump on the train to the Meadowlands ~ great way to experience a NFL game!
1:00PM: Photographing the NFL game between the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins at Metlife Stadium in the Meadowlands ~ magnificent stadium!

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/new-york-giants-juergen-roth.html
3:00 PM: Back on the train to Hoboken.
3:30 PM: Capturing the New York skyline from Frank Sinatra Drive ~ reminded me a bit of Memorial Drive in Boston where one has beautiful views of the city.

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/new-york-city-skyline-juergen-roth.html
5:30 PM: Heading over to Manhattan to catch the New York Knickerbockers at Madison Square Garden.
6:00 PM: Can't believe I find street parking two blocks from Madison Square Garden- sweet!
7:00 PM: Tip off - getting to work capturing the NBA game between the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors in pictures ~ Madison Square Garden is such a class act!

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/new-york-knicks-juergen-roth.html
9:30 PM: Exhausted and back at the hotel for dinner.

Monday:
7:00 AM: Croissants and coffee at a local bakery. Hitting the road back to Boston - yikes!

With an epic win over the Baltimore Ravens last night the New England Patriots will be competing against the winner of today's football game between the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts. The NFL AFC Championship game will  be hosted at Gillette Stadium next Sunday. The Patriots run for the 2015 Super Bowl is reason to select "Gillette Stadium and New England Patriots" the photo of the week.

Every week I select one of my favorite photographs from my  landscape, seascape, cityscape, sport, flower, abstract and macro photography galleries and offer it throughout that week at a discount. This week's photo artwork of the week on sale is "Gillette Stadium and New England Patriots", featuring the NFL Patriots and Pats Nation on a beautiful sunset night at Gillette. It is a great lobby, home or office art decoration for the Patriots sport fan.

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/featured/gillette-stadium-and-new-england-patriots-juergen-roth.html

Starting today and throughout the 2015 NFL Playoffs and as long as the NE Patriots are playing this arena photography print from my Boston Pride sport photography gallery, available as art photo print, acrylic and metal prints or on canvas, is on sale.

Big Apple Photography

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/art/all/all/all/my+new+york+city

On my last photo tour to the Big Apple I was able to stop at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. This waterfront park is a real New York gem that is loved by the local crowd and tourists alike. This treasure of a park has stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, Brooklyn Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge.

Pier 1 is the place to be for this shot. This photography location makes for great New York City Skyline Photography. It has wood pilings that work perfectly as foreground features and beautifully lead a viewer into the picture. I was on my own when I arrived before sunset. The weather called for clearing skies with a few lingering clouds. Equipped with a neutral density filter to lengthen exposure times I was able to create dreamy water effects in the East River and convey cloud movement within the sunset sky while the NYC skyline remained in sharp focus. 

Aperture in this NYC photo image was set to f/10 providing an exposure time of 20 seconds at an ISO setting of 200. During routine digital post processing I removed dust spot, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final photograph of Big Apple.
