"I want to reproduce the objects as they are, or as they would be even if I did not exist." --Taine
Bluejake is a photoblog run by me, Jake Dobkin, a photographer living in Brooklyn. It focuses mainly on urban landscape. Here's a short video from WNYC explaining a little bit about this project.
First Time Visitors
If it is your first time here, take a look around the blog; I post a new picture on the front page a few times each month. If you're still thirsty for more, check out the blog archives, which go back to February 2002.
Canon 5DM2 SLR. 420EX flash. Canon EF lenses: 17-40L and 85MM. I also toy with a film camera-- the Contax T2.
In general, I follow this process in Photoshop: RAW processor, curves (sometimes with gradients), and unsharp mask.
I admire the urban landscape photographs of Eugene Atget, Berenice Abbot, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Joel Sternfeld, Edward Burtynsky, and Bernd and Hilla Becher. But if I could paint like Edward Hopper, I wouldn't photograph at all.
More About Jake
I am also a street art photographer. You can find that work on Flickr. Here are a few recent shots:
