Summer Camp at Central Synagogue

Summer Camp at Central Synagogue

While I was at Central Synagogue to photograph headshots for their new staff members, I spent some time at the summer camp to make some photos to be used in the synagogue’s high holydays annual appeal.

New Staff at Central Synagogue

It was 95 degrees and humid the morning I photographed Central Synagogue’s new staff outdoors on 55th Street. Luckily everyone looked cool during the few minutes I spent with each person. I wasn’t as lucky, spending two hours on the street to work with everyone, but their smiles kept me feeling great.

Black-and-White Studio Portraits

My friend came to my studio to model for me as I tried some moody lighting that’s out of character with the commercial work I normally do. I felt color wasn’t working, so I converted the shots to black-and-white and liked them much better. Working in black-and-white is also not ordinary for me, so the shoot felt even more creative than normal.

American Bulldog in Prospect Park

It was so hot and humid that evening in Prospect Park that I couldn’t get photos of this beauty with his mouth closed. What you can’t see is that I felt the same way. I hope to get to work with him on another shoot in cooler weather.
