Crazy Heart-Oscars 2010

 © Katie Osgood 2010
A few weeks back I had the awesome privilege of shooting Jeff Bridges, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scott Cooper and Crazy Heart producer Judy Cairo at a screening for Crazy Heart at the Director's Guild Theater in New York. The movie was brilliant to say the least and had me wiping tears from my eyes just before exiting the theater to shoot the group. 

Since this image was taken the film has recieved three Oscar nominations, Jeff Bridges for Best Actor, Maggie Gyllenhaal for Best Supporting Actress, and Best Original Song for The Weary Kind, (T-Bone Burnett & Ryan Bingham).  Here is a link of an article by Peter Knegt on the film where my image is published.  If you haven't seen it yet, make plans to see it this weekend! And don't forget to watch the  82nd Annual Academy Awards live March, 7th on ABC.  As for people like myself, who only watch TV online, it looks as though there will be a live stream of the Oscars off abc.com, but as of now it looks as though, there isn't a definitive link sorry, so hopefully this link will work come March 7th.

National Pancake Day!!!

In honor of today, which according to my Facebook news feed is National Pancake Day, I decided to bake some Cranberry & Blueberry Coffee cake. Not exactly pancakes but in place of all-purpose flour I decided to use pancake mix, that's sort of celebratory right? Not only that, it's gluten-free! Had I used an egg alternative I could have gone full force and made this a vegan delight as well, but hey, I like my eggs :) Enjoy!

Cranberry & Blueberry Coffee Cake

1 stick of margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup almond milk
2 cups Trader Joe's gluten-free pancake & waffle mix
3/4 cups frozen cranberries
1/3 cup blueberries

Place mixture in 8x8 pan and bake at 350ยบ for about 25-35 min or until fluffy and golden brown.

The Shining Twins

Last week I was sent to go shoot The Shining Twins These ladies, Alex and Marisa, seem to be making some waves in NY's indi music scene. The girls are best friends and lovingly refer to themselves as twins, for good reason... They share a one bedroom apartment, a cell phone, a computer, and even wear matching outfits, and not just for performances. So it makes sense that they would go with "twins", instead of something like BFF.

Before I got to the twins apartment, I scouted a few back-up locations around their place on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, but the second I walked into their building I knew I waned to shoot there. The walls were freshly painted and there was a backdoor leading to a small backyard which let in just enough light to make the space glow. I was stoked! It would have been enough that the space was great but when I got upstairs to meet the girls, I was greeted with two exceptionally friendly and eccentric young ladies. The interview took place between shots and and set-ups so there was plenty to going on. If you want to know more about the girls check out the article by Dana Makeover on heebmagazine.com.

My photo
Brooklyn, NY
Welcome to my blog! Here you will find a potpourri of images from my personal and professional life. It should be said, I rarely turn down an opportunity to shoot whether it be a wedding or just a good idea for a portrait for a friend or colleague. On planned photo adventures I most likely have my 5D at my side rockin' my 50mm lens (my fav!), but at the very least I've always got my trusty iPhone with it's arsenal of apps (who says you need 21 mega-pixels to make great images?!). So please, scroll and click around. I hope you enjoy looking at my images as much I as I enjoy making them! If you'd like to contact me about a wedding or event, or if you'd just like to say hi, please don't hesitate to drop me a line at katie@katieosgood.com. Thanks!
