On my way to office in NYC. Morning sun was blinding and shining straight along the street. Even after stepping into shadow I was able to see only contours. I am surprised that camera was able to capture pretty much all details. In fact I added contrast to make it feel more like I saw it!
"Photography these days is like food. People are so used to eat processed industrial food that they don't even remember what the real thing taste like."

Spring is near and light is just perfect at this school bus stop.
2016 was an interesting year. On one hand I added one more all-time-consuming addiction to my life; I discovered Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. As result I photographed less and less just because I physically did not have any time left to do it in any meaningful way. Also non-stop renovations at home left me with no budget to experiment in a fine art nudes area as I planned before. On the other hand several dozen headshot sessions, 12000+ images later I think 2016 was not as bad as I thought.
Enjoy some of the images I really like from 2016. As you can see I still do not stick to a single theme or style.
