Paterson Falls

The Great Falls of the Passaic River is a prominent waterfall, 77 feet high, on the Passaic River in the city of Paterson in Passaic County, New Jersey, United States. The falls and surrounding area are protected as part of the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park, administered by the National Park Service.

When you tells people you are a photographer, the first question they ask is what sort of things do you shoot. And that’s always a difficult question because I will shoot anything that interests me. Not only that, I have various styles.

Color is usually my place to play. Black and white is where I try to leave the image alone, or at least crop out the stuff that doesn’t belong there.

Until digital came along I never shot color film although I worked as a commercial C-printer for about a year. My account was for some airline and I spent weeks on end printing ads for airlines. Color photographs. Ugh.

When digital and Photoshop etc. came along, color became interesting. Because you could pick your own colors for things and not rely on nature so much.
