Beautiful Cities of the World Collection
Here is another of the special animated creations for the recent drop on OpenSea.
Hey awesome blog reader… you’ll probably be aware that I’ve been delving into the world of NFTs in the past few months. So far, it’s been both a success and an interesting adventure. That continues today with my 2nd drop on OpenSea. This set of NFTs is based around 50 of my favorite cities spanning all seven continents. There are a wide range of configurations (and prices) available and I’d love it if you’d check them out. If you thought an NFT mixed with physical art was odd last time then how about several NFTs, wrapped in an NFT… mixed with some Aave tokens which should appreciate over time??!
The first drop on OpenSea did better than expected and broke $100,000USD in the first three days. This second one already has a lot of interest as more and more collectors are getting into the NFT world. Jump on in! I’ll make a detailed video soon that talks more about what I’ve learned, mistakes I’ve made, some new ideas, and other interesting stuff from this wild wild west of cryptofun.
Also, if you’re an NFT curious artist, be sure to sign up for Passport where I’ve been sharing videos about my NFT experience so far. If you’re thinking about listing your own, you may find those helpful. Speaking of your own NFTs, I’m now starting to invest back into other projects so if you launch something cool tag me on Twitter and I’ll be sure to take a look. 🙂
If you’re a Passport Member then you’ll see a fun sneak peek of an upcoming drop over there. I have a new strategy that will either be awesome or crash and burn. We’ll see! 🙂
Here’s a sneak preview of the drop and a little bit about the pricing strategy. I don’t really know if it will work or not. I have very low expectations… so I guess we will see!
Wow this seems like ages ago!
I took this as soon as we started the photowalk in New York that you can see in the highlights above. It was a pretty hard photo to get, actually. Getting your tripod set up there is not easy because bikes go whizzing by right and left, so it kind of keeps you on high alert. Everyone is kicking and knocking your tripod legs… get outta heeeya! 🙂
I’ve always wanted to visit this Stairway to Nowhere in Hudson Yards, so I was sure to block off an entire day for it. There are literally no bad photos of this thing, so it’s what I call a high-target environment! In these situations, I challenge myself to get as many “different” kinds of photos as possible. This one is probably one of my favorites.
Man, I must say… I don’t really want to jump the Sony ship to get on the Fuji ship, but this new camera looks pretty dang sweet!
It was one of the final stops on our worldwide tour, and New York City was a great place to have some final parties. I think this was the night before I headed out to the Mayan Warrior in Brooklyn to have one of those raves that went till about 3 AM. What a good time, though… Those guys always know how to bring the party.
From my somewhat extensive knowledge of comics, I believe that Gotham City is based on a parallel universe version of New York City. In the comics and movies, Batman always has a bit of a blue tone, so sometimes I like to shoot New York using the tungsten or incandescent settings to get the same sort of look.
After my talk in New York City, I was invited on the roof of the Marriott in downtown to capture this photo of Freedom Tower. They have one of the best views in downtown and it was good to get up high to minimize the perspective angles that sometimes diminish the stature of skyscrapers as high as this one.
And here’s one of my favorite videos of all time… the highlights from our USA Photowalk Tour!
This was an amazing start to our USA Tour! What better place to start than NYC and on the Brooklyn Bridge? It was great to see so many people out there. We actually got into a little bit of trouble when crossing the bridge because we had such a big crowd that we shut down a lot of the biking! We didn’t think of that ahead of time… Just one more in a long series of mistakes!
