POTD: Orb Spinning in Brooklyn

Brooklyn Orb
LED light orb spinning at Brooklyn Bridge Park, NY

A while back I purchased a custom LED “spinner” from a guy on Instagram who makes them for photographers. It’s a fun light-painting tool once you get the hang of using it! I haven’t had too many opportunities to use it, but I knew NYC had the perfect spot! My clients all enjoyed capturing the spinning lights in front of the iconic NYC skyline at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Lux Nocturne: New York City by Night

I’m with clients in New York City for a twilight/night photography workshop. Although the weather is gloomy, we learned that nothing can stop the wonderful blue hour of twilight. We photographed lower Manhattan last night and ended up at the beautiful and moving World Trade Center Memorial. Enjoy!
