Michael Donovan Was Here…

Cool Mike: I'll Make Your Life Smack Goody-Style!

Ending the First Decade in New York at the Start of the 2nd Millennium AD

with 4 comments

I woke up early to shoot the city for my fundraising project. I made my way to the Brooklyn Bridge around 6am so I could watch the sun come up on Manhattan. I wanted to showcase NY as if it were at the turn of the century or after the great depression… oh wait.. it IS the turn of the century and we just finished a fat recession.

For the record, I did NOT use photoshop to achieve these looks. They were achieved using custom filters. Everything you see here was shot in camera, then converted to black & white.

Extra note: feel free to share these with people for non-commercial purposes. Meaning: post them on your facebook, your blog, myspace or whatever. Just be sure to credit me! πŸ˜€ They are here for us to enjoy.

      • If you don’t mind me asking, did you double expose in camera, or did you do it post?

      • These were digital captures using using custom filters so all manipulations were done in camera; excluding the conversion to black and white. πŸ˜€
