Daily Photo: MORE THAN JUST A SHUTTER BUTTON

image.jpg

Can I get a double tap on my Instagram feed for this photo =) . Can I first say how much I am obsessed with this photo I captured. Just look at those colors... something like a painting. Before I got into serious photography, I had no clue about any of the techniques that it takes to creating a interesting image. You know that image that just takes you to another place.

Lately I'm noticing how much more I'm becoming, very meticulous about the images I capture. In photography I've learned taking your time and capturing what's in front of you takes more then just pushing a shutter button.

Tell me what you think in the comments down below. Would like some feedback on the photo. Should it be printed... hmm

DON'T FALL OVER

I just publish this photo on my Instagram that remind me of summer. Oh how much I miss summer already and we not even close to winter. I think I'm ready for winter, because I know the amount of beautiful images I will be capturing while out on adventures are going be great for the archive look book.

This past summer was just a great time for me. The photo above which features my friend, Jaime who pretending to climb up from the east river on the Brooklyn side of New York City. Before he went climbed over, I said to him your nuts, what would happen if you slip in. Which would be a funny but messy situation. Let be clear on one thing if you've been to New York City or know anything about NYC, just know the water isn't the prettiest sight.

We were able to capture the moment without causing any problems or falling in. Overall it turned out to be an amazing photo capture by yours truly.

I have a podcast show.

I started a podcast !!! 

I always wanted to do a podcast. I like engaging with others based on specific topics, that provoke deep thoughts, & give a message at the end. It took me a while to create a name for my podcast. So I went with the most obvious name. (KareemDaily) 

Reasoning being I didn't have a to many names that me made excited about it... So I decide if my podcast starts to grow then I give it a way better than name that it is. Maybe. 

What is my podcast? 

Absolutely about nothing, no seriously. I started it off with mainly just myself talking (obviously) about everything and anything. I didn't feel like breaking my podcast down in a category. Why? Do the the norm? There are hundreds of podcast, they all have great topics. But I just felt I wanted to do something a little different. 

So for my first official podcast is my intro along with a question at the end. Unfortunately, I haven't received the proper equipment yet that I need to do my podcast. What had happened was, I purchased a microphone off eBay and it just taking forever. So I cancelled that order. Got my money back and purchased a new mic from Amazon. (Smarter deal)   

So once I get the new equipment I will return with another episode to my podcast. Please feel free to comment, leave questions, & come back.

Uncontrollable

Blurred New York Traffic

I haven't spent much time photographing anything recently, which simply kills me. If there one thing I could do every day would be to wake up and photograph something that provokes my inner creativity. Just about two years ago, I really got into photography where I started studying the craft of it all. But even before that my dad gave me an old Polaroid camera which I used completely and made a mess of, then it was the video camera, then came my point and shoot Canon, & then cell phones came along. Currently I use a DSLR which I am obsessed with sometimes I just sit with it and try all different kind of features.

Moving Fast

But lately my time is all backwards.. I mean one minute I'm busy running around doing errands, then I'm at work for 8hrs, & then I'm spending time with the love of my life. Life has been a full roll coaster lately and I feel like I am loosing all control on my life. So much to do, so little time. Eventually I will get back on traffic, I know I will.

E 14st, Manhattan, New York

Here are few images from a few old random nights when I was out with a friend and my fiancée. I try and bring my camera, as much as I can with me to hopefully capture something so great it moves a million people. (One day

BAD EATING HABITS !

image.jpg

We all have it, we all enjoy it, we all need it to survive. But honestly to much can kill you. You probably do not know what the f%%k I am talking about. Ok lord forgive....I'm talking about the food we eat. Yes. Food! 

Recently I went to doctor for one of those monthly check up. My doc he had some bad news for me. Unfortunatly. I went from laughing to frowning within seconds. Mr Doc told me I needed to watch what I'm eating, how much of the same high calorie food I'm consuming, & start to change my eating habits. 

😩 Doc do you know how hard that is ?

I cannot believe this is happening to me. I love food, I truly do. I mean who doesn't? C'mon now, all my friends always say to me you're always eating some exclusive deliciousness..... 

😔 doc your killing me now, what shall I eat?

Anyway upon finding out that I gained some weight recently. I was craving no other than "Shake Shack" great now I got this guilty feeling in the back of my mind about my eating habits. Oh well I guess I'll just suffer in the gym or maybe a jog will do the trick. 

After the amazing surf & turf burger I had from Shake Shack and cheese fries *cough* which I did share the fries with my lovely lady. I'm currently trying to eat nothing but salad with grill chicken, vegetables, & less fast food. 

I'll get back to you when I'm done crying over my bowl of salad

STANDING STRONG

image.jpg

 

Lately I've had this itch for night photography. Simply because it brings so much relaxation to my soul that it is unexplainable. Just a couple days ago my fiancée and I drove down to the Manhattan which is a 25-30 minute drive for us without unexpected traffic condition. My essential reasoning for heading to the city was to check out this famous ice cream store (@mikeylikesiticecream) that has hit Instagram mainstream. 

We arrived into the city around 9pm, looked for parking which took us another 15mins, & then walked to our destination. For me walking the city at night is relaxing then walking it during the day. During the day you are saying excuse me more than you would say bless you to someone sneezing. After we split a deliciousness cup of strawberry cheesecake - plus the four to five sample of every other ice cream in the store. We proceeded to walk around to just enjoy the summer night. 

I had no essential plans of visiting the freedom tower / museum. But my fiancé  mention she never really seen it at night beside driving wise and would like to see it. Once we got there it was completely empty (shockingly) because it is a tourist favorite place to visit at any time of the day. Since no one was there and I didn't have to wait long to setup my shot. I took full advantage of the emptiness. I began to setup my camera and snap away. My final picture I took was this one which is a wide depth of feel. For future gallery titles, I name this one "Standing Strong." 

Thanks for visiting.
