Here is a rooftop portrait I took a couple weeks back of music manager Paul Gasparrini from a New York City rooftop on a beautiful night. The clouds were thick and low creating an eerie glow in the sky. I took these images without tripod and without any lights. Just took some controlled breathing, slow shutter speeds, and leaning against solid objects for stability. No serious photoshopping happening above, just some dodging and burning. Burned using the “shadow” setting on the city buildings and the “midtones” setting on the sky. I think I would like to do more rooftop photos of the city at night in the near future. Landscape photography has never really been my thing, but you have to shake it up sometimes, right?
