ABT Junior Turnout at The Bowery Hotel NYC

Last night was the Junior Turnout at the Bowery Hotel in NYC. When Cara Moccia asked me if I would like to attend I was really excited.

Always a beautiful event filled with dancers and guests with a touch of flamboyant style I decided to put my new Canon 5D Mark4 to the test.

Shooting without the flash in the dark venue I soon realized that the camera was producing amazing images. After taking lots of candids it felt like I was taking movie stills for some exotic film noir.

The guests were happy to pose and so here are my results of both the candids and the gently posed photos.

I processed the images in Aperture. Yes I still use Aperture and desaturated them to give them an old worldly feel. Shooting at 6400 ISO there was remarkably little noise and I love the creaminess of the images.

And they Wore Red To the Metropolitan Opera Fall Gala 2016

Here are a few photos of the fire Ladies who chose to wear Red to The Metropolitan Fall Gala 2016.
The Dinner was served in a tent designed by the very talented David Stark.  With its under water theme the dresses floated through the space in beautiful contrast to the blue waves of fabric hanging from the ceiling of the tent.

The Metropolitan Opera Fall Gala 2016 Celebrating 50 years at Lincoln Center

Monday Night was the NYC Metropolitan Opera Fall Gala 2016. It was also the premier of Tristain und Isolde staring Nina Stemme. I was so lucky to get to watch the Opera in a box on the Parre Terre level and found myself behind the amazingly beautiful and very chic Bianca Jagger who looked stunning in all black. You can see her in the post below arriving at the top of the stairs. As always Mrs Ziff looked fabulous and radiant in a pink ball gown. Mercedes Bass was wearing perhaps the most beautiful jewels I have ever seen. Oscar and Agnes Hsu-Tang stopped to say
