When your moon hits your eye like a biga pizza pie…

There is now no medium in which I haven’t debated New Haven versus New York pizza.

New Haven was recently named America’s #1 Foodie City by Livability.com. We can’t exactly argue. We do love our food!

Check out this list of some of New Haven’s top bites. What’s your favorite? Did we miss anything?

This is why I avoid new haven. I’ve tried most of the restaurants on this list and I can’t say I was a fan.

Modern Pizza and York St Noodle House. You don’t need to go anywhere else.

While I agree Modern Pizza is the best in new haven I’m a New York pie guy all the way through.

I just love stories and story telling. I think prepping to play a real person is much different from playing a fictional character and so far you feel a responsibility towards whom the real historical character was, but your text is your bible. Your writer is your authority. So, know your history, but know that you are not making a historical documentary, you’re making a piece of drama. - Natalie Dormer

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

We never know when the bus is coming.

Creating splash shots in the studio can be one of the most frustrating and rewarding shoots a photographer can take on. Not only do you have to set up the lights absolutely perfectly, but you have to either have an assistant who you are very much in sync with, or be a genius with a shutter release. You also have to be ready for a lot of mess, and a lot of photographs that will never see the light of day, but are great for a blooper reel.

For these shots, the glasses (filled with water, not alcohol), were set up about three feet directly in front of a 3x4 softbox, with black foamcore cards clipped to either side to create the black rim on the glass and the water. Right above the glass was another softbox, this time a 2x2.

Since I was shooting with strobes, I put my ISO at 100, and my shutter speed as fast as I could make it without seeing the sensor curtain (on my Rebel it was 1/200th of a second, on my 6D it would be 1/160th). I set up my camera about ten feet from the glass and used a 300mm lens. My aperture was at f/14, to make sure everything that came out of the glass was completely sharp. I zoomed in so the glass filled the frame, leaving room for whatever splashes might happen, and accounting for the black cards on the softbox.

It took a few (horribly bad) test shots before my assistant and I got our rhythms connected. I would count down and he would throw the fruit from a few feet away (to maximize splashes!).  Once we realized how cool the shots could look, we got creative by adding food coloring, and throwing the fruit before the color mixed with the water.
