    Got my first tear in Time Magazine!

    So 2 weeks ago the the city of Chicago commissioned the Artist team Luftwerk to transform the Cloud Gate, aka the bean, with light and music. I went to a preview night and was able to get some shots. The next day on Friday I was approached by Time for use of one of the images. Originally they spec'd out the usage as 1/4 page but then ended up running it at 1/2! Then on Saturday the artists contacted me as well, so I asked them about collaborating on some more images, which they graciously obliged. The city has also requested rights to a package of images for Tourism use.

    These are the Artists Petra and Sean...

    On one night I had private access of the Field and had the dancers come out to make some long motion dance exposures, the weather fought us, but everyone had a great time out there...

    Congratulations - splendid stuff.
    Of course, it's not relevant to the images, but what did you shoot them on?

    all the best
