This photo is a view of west 23rd street and Eight avenue in 1937. Immediately I see the difference of the cars compare to today's cars. It is amazing how those cars cost millions of dollars now and you only can see them in car shows but is good to see that today they have some in good condition to learn and see how its structure was like. I also see how people dress at that time. It looks like the suit was a regular clothing. Also, there are a lot of signs, typical of New York City, even though in the 1930's there were not the billboards and TV screens we have today but that is the process of evolution and modernization. Because of photography, we can go back and learn about the history of this beautiful city.

Use of Light Photo


I took this photo on my last trip to Dominican Republic. These are my friends in D.R. I like this photo because the sun in the beach is so strong that creates a silhouette of the body of my friend Anthony. There is a nice contrast and this is a good example of how daylight transforms the photo. I like it.

Vital Forms / Diva

This picture called Diva has high contrast. I like the way he used the light behind her. I like how some highlights in her body help define the structure and expression of her. The white background marks perfectly the lines of her body. I think that this photo makes her come out very good. I like it and it is very professional.

Favorite Photo


Shea Stadium - New York Mets

I am a baseball fan and a Mets fan. I took this photo in my first trip this season to Shea Stadium. I shot this picture during the game. I like it because you can see the main interaction of the game which is the pitcher versus the hitter. I love it becasue of the intensity and motion in their action. You can see the movement in the right leg of the pitcher which turns blurry as well as the bat of the hitter and the ball coming out of the bat. I also like the pattern in the grass and the green in the summer.





Don Dixon - Commercial Photos - Conceptual

Nose - Snow Cave

I personally like this photo because as soon as you see it makes you think on what is the concept or if there is more than one meaning. In the picture he used the nose of a person's face in a horizontal view which you can associate very quick with a snow cave. The shape of the nose, the shadows and lights, the hole, the texture like snow and the blue sky background makes a nice composition, with a smart concept and more than one idea you can use to compare.
