Ilana's Bat Mitzvah: Alternative Images

It's interesting to see which photos a client chooses versus the ones I like. Both choices are valid (in fact, the client's are the ones that really count) but I like to pull out images that appeal to my inner street photographer and my love of black and white.

Here are some shots I thought fit one or the other aesthetic, from a recent Bat Mitzvah.

Why I've been AWOL, and breaking news!

I've been busy with both photo and writing projects, and I need to catch up on my posts here.

And I'll get to it, I promise! But first, this late-breaking news: One of my photos has been named one of the 9 best photos for July in Middlesex County. It's a photo from a march in Highland Park, NJ by the local Jewish community in solidarity with Israel. Here's the shot:

I have many more new assignment photos (including many more from the above event) to share. Coming soon!

Photojournalism: Raw Emotion and Unity At Rutgers for Three Israeli Teenage Terror Victims

Rutgers Hillel and Federation of Central New Jersey quickly organized a vigil/memorial service for Gil-Ad, Naftali and Eyal tonight at Brower's Common in Rutgers University. Primarily run by Hillel students, members of the communities of Highland Park, Edison and East Brunswick came to show support and find comfort.

Sometimes I use my camera to work through my own emotions when there is a crisis. This was such a time.
