Friend and local folk musician George Genauracos of the Yankee Roses at Miami City Cemetery, Florida, USA. We shot in several locations to explore ideas for a future album cover, and I captured this series of him walking through this scene of the crumbling gravestones in this over 100 year old cemetery juxtaposed against the gleaming skyscrapers on the north end of downtown Miami. I decided to have a bit of fun with the resulting series of images!

What do you think?

Canon 5DmkII, canon 40mm f2.8, composite of five images shot in sequence, work done in Photoshop, B&W in Aperture.

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!

    just a quick question,
    you used aperture for turning to black and white ? Do you prefer it to Photoshop ?

  • Good question. I actually do. Although this picture needed to be composited in Photoshop, that being beyond the capabilities of Aperture, I prefer the tools in Aperture for converting to black and white. In Aperture, I find it to be faster, and the quick preset filters also come in handy (red, orange, green, blue, and infrared). Also, I usually keep the images in RAW format as long as possible, so in this case I converted the original images to B&W in Aperture by rubber stamping the settings from one to the next (and in one case adjusting the exposure) while still RAW, then composited in Photoshop.
