Shoshana Bean at Rockwood Music Hall

Spring finally seems to be on its way, and I will take the current “mid-sixties and rain” over the past “low-twenties and clear.”. ¬†With this season change¬†comes new hope, new projects, and the sudden panic that you have yet to file your taxes. ¬†I figured I would post these shots before I get lost in a box of receipts.

Shoshana Bean has embarked¬†on a whirlwind tour promoting her latest EP release,¬†Shadows to Light, which dropped at the end of last year. ¬†Shadows to Light is an entirely acoustic recording¬†which includes a stripped-down “Runaway Train,” and a brilliant cover of Sia’s hit single “Chandelier.” ¬†Bean was back in New York City for one sold-out acoustic performance at Rockwood Music Hall’s Stage 2. ¬†Those in attendance were treated to a duet with Eden Espinosa (also a former Elphaba in¬†Wicked), as well as some throwback tunes (namely her infamous 2008 release, “Naomi,” a large departure from her current sound).

All photos were shot on the Canon 7D mounted with a Canon EF 24-70mm ƒ/2.8L II USM lens.

Winter Storm Thor; Blog Update

First off, please excuse the new bare-bones blog theme. ¬†I’m currently shopping around for a premium theme to make the most out of my blog in 2015, but I want to make sure I’ve found the perfect one. ¬†In the mean time, I needed some sort of change.

Winter was something I definitely did¬†not¬†have to deal with last year when I lived in Los Angeles. ¬†This was not the case for 2014-2015. ¬†I would even go out on a limb to declare it the worst winter I’ve experienced since 2006-2007 (because I didn’t live here last winter). ¬†Winter makes it hard for me to do¬†anything. ¬†Apparently¬†I become some sort of hibernating animal, and I only emerge when completely necessary. ¬†Needless to say, I stepped away from the camera for two months because I stepped away from my life (I believe this is called Seasonal Affective Disorder). ¬†I’m really looking forward to dealing with that next year, since it’s not something I can ever truly do again.

March actually came in “like a lion” in the shape of Winter Storm Thor, which decided to remind the East Coast that although it¬†was¬†the month of March, it was still in fact, Winter. ¬†This season was filled with false predictions of large snowfall totals for Philadelphia (sorry, Boston), so I did not expect I would be¬†shoveling my car out from a¬†foot of snow on March 5; but that is what I did. ¬†And then I bit the bullet and went outside with my camera:
