This is a photo I took last night of the “Manhattanhenge” phenomenon, which I had only recently learned of. Manhattanhenge is the term for the time of the year when the position of the setting sun aligns perfectly with the New York City grid, allowing boxed-in New Yorkers to enjoy a spectacle that most other people can enjoy year round.  The official date of the phenomenon is tonight at 8:30pm if you are interested in seeing it. Only in New York!


My Lighting Internship in Photos

July 10, 2011


Photo-journal time!

I really enjoy taking photos, and I take a lot of them while I’m working or running around town, so I thought it would be fun to share some of the various projects I have been working on as an intern at Focus Lighting so far this summer.  I’ve been working mainly on hotel and restaurant projects, assisting the designers in the office with everything from drawing lighting plans in AutoCAD, to researching and testing design ideas, to adjusting and focusing the lighting on job sites.

The photos below show some of the “mockups” I’ve built to test out some of the designer’s ideas, as well as some of the places I’ve been inside a new hotel project downtown. Take a look!

(Side note: If you’ve been following me on Twitter you may recognize some of these photos, as I usually post them online after I take them — so if you’re interested in seeing more, follow me!)
