Google+ 2nd Year Anniversary Photo Walk

Matt Hill

I had a blast yesterday attending the 2nd-year anniversary of Google+ in the form a of 100+ person photo walk in NYC. Hosted by Alan Shaprio and sponsored by SmugMug, it was truly a friendly, quality gathering of photographers. 

Our walk started in Chinatown, went to Brooklyn and back across to Manhattan. Rough mapping below. 

I, as usual, brought a little too much gear to be constantly shooting, but I was happy. There was a team of us from MAC Group attending to spread the love and cheer about X-Rite, PocketWizard, Induro, MeFOTO, Sekonic, Kupo and more. I was celebrating by shooting Hypersync flash (example above). You know me, I prefer long exposures, so daylight I can do, but it's not my preference.

The quality of the people at the photo walk was excellent! I got to meet many new people and finally catch up with some others I've been wanting to shake hands with and chat. Good times! Looking forward to next year.

Night Paper #7: Heather Whatever in a Snowy Brooklyn Backyard

Matt Hill

I am delighted to present that latest installment in the NIGHT PAPER series. A good friend of ours offered his backyard in Brooklyn as a place to have a shoot. LIttle did we know that when we scheduled the shoot, it would be the day after WINTER STORM NEMO (ominous drumroll and peals of thundersnow).

I was happy, since I envisioned at least one snow shoot in the series. Fortunately, our brave soul, Heather Whatever, agreed that a snow shoot was a great idea!

For this project, I made a timelapse while cutting Heather's cut paper fashion. Here it is for your viewing enjoyment:

And now for my favorite images from this shoot:

Night Paper #3: Rainy Rooftop in Williamsburg (NSFW)

Matt Hill


Last Friday evening, I completed my third shoot in the Night Paper series. Deepest thanks go to the very courageous models who braved the high-60′s temperatures post-rainstorm atop the 11th floor of a building in south Williamsburg. One was Clara Coquette, a fantastic and talented local burlesque dancer and the other wishes to remain anonymous. You were both amazing, and I thank you. Also big thanks go to my assistant and girlfriend, Mabel, for making many important details happen effortlessly. Mwah!

Here are some favorites from the shoot. More after the jump!

Here are test shots from the fitting:
