Cityscapes - Pervez Photography

Cities are such a unique place to shoot. As centers of mass populations, they are an embodiment of the human experiment: they show us how we live together, how we form a society, but uniquely so. This is because cities inevitably include diverse groups of people, spanning race, class, ethnicity, gender, religion, etc. It is hard to not find a particular group of people in these metropolises. And in this sea of humanity, there are also majestic buildings, parks, and unique architecture. In all of this, people function with normalcy. In that sense, cities remind me that we are capable of living with one another, despite our differences, and that there is nothing unusual about it. City photography has the potential to capture all of this, and that is simply magical.

Infrared Bethesda Fountain

Was walking with a friend from grad school in Central Park when we came to Bethesda Fountain on a summer day. I don't have an infrared body or an infrared filter, but I know how to play with the colors in Lightroom to simulate the effect....though you need the right subject in the shot to make it come out. I had a suspicion this image would end up doing well with the editing.
