Photographer, NYC. Welcome to my experimental art space. Original content only. Street photography. Street Art. Urban architecture. Candid portraiture. Street. Art. Fashion. Word. Text. A poetic taxonomy of NYC. Commentary of mine own variety. David Kamerov.
Consider following if you’re into any of the above. I generally post daily.
Photographer David Kamerov - Yo’ve seen his work and if you have not then here you go kind folk. (david kamerovNYC). Found a little spot out in Astoria,NY and made some images of the man. One of a few mutual favourites.
“I grew up and continue to reside in New York City. Although I’ve been interested in photography for some years, I purchased my first (& current) DSLR [Canon T3i] in May 2013.
I subsequently found myself drawn to a compulsive daily practice of confronting, documenting and refracting the pulse and life of the city around me, pursuing the structures + symbols that saturate a landscape I’ve known and feared, abhorred & even loved, since childhood.
Months of stumbling along the streets & fumbling along the mode dial in a generally manual direction led me to the development of an adequate, if shallow, technical awareness. (My prior formal photo-experience had been limited to a manual film photo course I’d taken as a college elective about 7 years ago. Other than that, point-and-shoots. And iPhoto. And selfies. Lots of selfies).
Three months in, I started shooting RAW.
That camera meant, for me: new eyes: a deepening of voice: the expansion of consciousness.
All photos have been taken with one of 3 lenses: 18-55 mm 3.5-5.6 kit lens; 55-250 mm 4-5.6 zoom; and (recently) 24-70 mm 3.5-5.6 Sigma zoom. All edits have been done using Lightroom.
My work today continues to be experimental albeit street-centric at the core, and although I anticipate that it will continue to have strong documentary, street, and urban architectural elements, I find myself increasingly interested in more abstract/conceptual subject matter.
Concurrently I work as a freelance photo assistant in the commercial/fashion photo industry in NYC, and am hoping to pursue something along those lines. (Message me if you could use a hand, I’m broke! …but my Ask works).
Today I consider myself to be something of a professional amateur. I hope to one day become a professional photographer.”
Once Again In America - Culture Shock - A Portrait of Night
Me and kamerov lost our virginities again the other night ..him first time using a tripod for street work and me ..first time using a flash for street work. No doubt he’ll post his results. would that it be sooner.
I like how flash slices a shape out of the background. Im no Bruce Gilden (har har) but IT [flash - sb-800, if you care] helps me get closer to people. the oddest thing I know…
