Reader Contribution Du Jour: People In Our Neighborhood

Lest I have it clear already tips and submissions are more than welcome here at New York Shitty. Although I may not have the time to post everything I am sent (I like my time away from the keyboard just like everyone else, probably more so) they are greatly appreciated. Today I am pleased as punch to share with you some photographs taken by a fellow Greenpoint named Tony Luib. He writes:

these are photos i took on my phone. they are certainly a different style than your more professional shots and not sure they are blog-worthy. they are interesting, though. if you would like to use them, please feel free. i’ve been hesitant to send you any photos because it’s really my phone that is on me when the time comes to shoot someone or something.  the iPhone distorts also but i still like the ease of its use…. i just decided today to actually send them to you to see for yourself. call me crazy.

Tony does himself a tremendous disservice: a number of his photographs are terrific! He does a great job at capturing the ephemeral quality of day to day life in the Garden Spot of the Universe. But enough talk. See for yourself.









I told you this was some good stuff now didn’t I? In closing anyone interested in submitting photographs of Greenpoint or beyond please do so, I would love to see them. But please keep them at 600 x 800 pixels so my inbox doesn’t get constipated.

  6. Those are fantastic, I would have never guessed them from an iPhone (or cell phone)

  8. Tony is by education an artist— and a very good one at that. That having been established, the means by which one takes photographs isn’t important. You can give someone a $2,000+ camera; it won’t guarantee that he/she will take good photographs. One needs to have an “eye”. Tony has this and you do as well.

    The only thing I noticed amiss with Tony’s iPhone pix was they were occasionally a little washed out/over-exposed. I did a minimal amount of color/gamma correction in this respect. That’s it. Either way they are wonderful!

Tell me what you're thinking...
