For these photos, I was able to experiment with multiple different apertures and focal lengths.
Labor Day, 2017

Catching the political sign peeking through the flag-holders gave me an interesting perspective of the parade in downtown Pittsburgh. The bright afternoon sun created vivid color contrast.

These flowers, in the Allegheny Cemetery downtown, created the perfect opportunity to practice isolation with depth of field. The direction of natural light created a great focal point for the image.

This image focuses on the wine box, a pun in some ways. Cleaning up trash in the city can be quite the “conundrum.”
F-stop – f4, Exposure – 1/10, ISO – 1600
This photo features Zach against the ever-present lights and colors of the busy Southside of Pittsburgh. The subtle Bokeh of the stoplights create a bright, yet soft background for the subject. I love the graininess of the image, which creates a raw, industrial feel.

This is an extreme blur of the Southside Cinema overhang lights, creating a unique neon bokeh affect.
