Restaurant bars and lounges are amazing places to take photos if you have the courage to take out your camera with everyone watching. The endless rows of wine glasses and bottles, along with the vibrant colors and dim lighting, make for some of the most interesting photos. This is a very dramatically lit B&W photo of wine glasses hanging neatly from a ceiling rack. I love the unusual perspective and the shallow depth of field with only the front edge of the rims in sharp focus. It’s got a very artistic look to it, and I am dying to see this as either a very large 20×30 pearl print, or as a huge 30×45 floating canvas. Taken with a Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon at f/4.5, 1/40 handheld.

This guy had the right idea last summer… taking a peaceful nap in the shade of one of the gorgeous trees in Madison Square Park. I love the grainy-ness and the deep blacks in the image… they make it more interesting and artistic than just a standard sharp focus photo that you’ll see much more often. Street photography is so difficult in New York, but when you nail one, you really get something special. Taken with a Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon lens at f/2.
