Photographer’s Life Then and Now.

Photo 1

To the few subscribers that are loyal to me as a friend, as a photographer, and as a musician (when I released music – I miss it; I’ll start releasing content hopefully much sooner than it took me to write to this blog again), the random person who clicked from Google, to the person who found my website from a contact card etc. perhaps searching my website to see my photography welcome / welcome back! It’s been a while; too darn long.

One thing that has not changed over the years is my internal alarm at 5:30 a.m.; I hopped up out the bed…my swag stays on…I took a look in the mirror and said what’s up…yeah…I’m living my dreams now….I’m living my dreams now.

Sitting here, slowly baking in the summer heat waves of Miami, 2017, thinking on what to share about life as a photographer then vs. now, I’m a little in awe knowing that I still have the camera in hand.

As a reader, I don’t expect you to fully feel this feeling I feel if you don’t know my story.  (more…)

Tucker Took That: The Story Of Blair At My Studio

The Story of Blair

Rockstar living is the best way to describe the process of “The Story of Blair” photo-shoot at my studio. Usually when I plan a shoot I prepare and effectuate using: Pre-Production, Production & Post-Production. Using the production-process make the turnaround to my Commercial Clients (ClothingJewelry, Resturant etc.) smooth as possible. An unplanned night like last Friday night at my studio supports the quote, “If you stay ready, you never have to get ready.” We had very little time to plan, very little time to make this shoot happen, but we live something like rockstars so we made it work.  (more…)

Fine Art Photography: George Washington Bridge

George Washington Bridge Photography by Dwayne Tucker

Our past trip to NYC, we crossed over to New Jersey and there I made this photograph of the George Washing Bridge (GWB). At the ground level looking up, you realize the GWB’s true magnitude. When photographing an image like this one you must always be thinking about what the best possible composition could be; for your taste. (I was shooting my favorite 24mm 1.4 lens with a CPL filter and the Nikon D800.)

Street Photography: Halal Food – NYC

Halal Food

I love when the sun is setting; that late afternoon light of a New York summer stroll is magical to me. It excites me to have my camera shutter ready. Simply amazed by the amount of Halal Food Trucks I walked by. In motion, blending in like fast walking New Yorkers. I’m fast walker. Not too fast for a quick stop to compose / frame  and capture this photo. I love creating photographs like this because it keeps the eye tuned for identifying what could be a great photo. This isn’t the greatest photo but it’s a memory that will last forever and that’s great enough.

Street Photography: Feed Your Mind

Feed Your Mind

Captured on a late night train ride in NYC. This photograph is nothing more than perfect timing. I sat in the seat across. It should feel weird holding my D800 in people faces but at this point I’m over it. However, in situations alike this one I would prefer a smaller, discreet camera. It will make my subjects feel a little more comfortable. When shooting street photographs alike this one you have to keep fear out of your soul and find the image; this moment will never happen again. Your moment will never happen again, do what you have to to get the image.
