I’m loving my time up here in NYC. I missed the city life a lot! My goal is to one day be bi-coastal. I wanna have a place in LA and a place in NYC. I give myself 15 years for that goal and it all begins with moving out to LA in 6 weeks! Lets get to work!!

Random Guy Plays Music On NYC Subway

So there we were taking the subway back to queens when this guy gets on the train at 42nd street with a piano with a tube coming out of it. Immediately he begins blowing through the tube and pressing the keys and starts playing the “Happy Birthday” song. Nobody really pays too much attention. After a few seconds he starts to break into Whiz Khalifa’s “Black & Yellow” and then he goes into Fabolous “Girl You Be Killin’ Em!” The show got a lot more interesting. A few people on the subway started participating and singing the songs. This guy did an amazing job and quite a few people threw him some money because he was also very polite when he was finished as he thanked everybody for listening! Look out for this dude if you ride the subways!

NYC Photo Adventure!!!

March 12, 2011 | Posted in Film, Photography, Travel | By

What better place to go on a photo adventure other than my hometown New York City! I’ll be going up there this week for an amazing photo adventure!!! I’ve gone on some cool photo adventures around South Beach but this one is gonna be like no other! I’ve been really inspired by photographer Peter Lik’s incredible photos of Central Park and the entire NYC Skyline! I plan on spending a full two days taking pictures. I’m gonna hit up Central Park, top of the Rockefeller Center, top of the Empire State Building, Long Island City, Brooklyn, and other places! I really wanna come back with stunning photos of the skyline! I’m really excited to take random pictures all over the city! I also planning on doing some stock footage video shots as well. Of course when I return I will post tons of pictures!!!

Canon Rebel T2i

March 5, 2011 | Posted in Film, Photography | By

How crazy is it that DSLR’s can record full 1080p High Definition Video these days? The best part about it is that you have the option of using different lenses to create beautiful looking depth of field (background out of focus) which really makes your videos look like film! So once I found out about this technology I knew I had to get one. I’ve always liked photography but never thought I would end up doing it on a professional level. I was always all about video but these days I’m about both! I really love photography now. I have a Canon Rebel T2i HDSLR with an 18-55mm lens and a 55-250mm lens! If you’re just starting out in photography like myself the Canon Rebel T2i is a great camera. It’s fairly easy to use but you might wanna watch a few youtube videos on photography to understand the basics. I’m picking up on photography pretty quickly because of my background with video. I’ve photographed many random spots around South Beach and Downtown Miami and I just did my first photo shoot with a father and a son! I’m heading to New York City next week to capture some amazing photos which I’ll post up when I return! I will also be using this camera to shoot HD Music Videos that will look like they were shot on a $100,000 film camera! We used two HDSLR’s to shoot my last film “Tech Support” on and it came out amazing! It’s really hard to tell the difference between HDSLR footage and 35mm film footage when looking at the image! If you’re looking to have pictures taken or shoot a Music Video you can view examples of my work on my website @ www.GaryDunkel.com and contact me when you’re ready!
