Photography in Manhattan - New York - Part Six

Posted on 5th August 2012 - 5 Comments

Mission Guggenheim - This image was planned for around a week, as we coincided a visit to the Salmon Guggenheim Museum with their free visiting hours, rather than spend $25 for one shot. I had read online that no tripods could be used inside the museum and no photography anywhere but the entrance hall. That was perfect for me as it was this magnificent spiral that I was after.

Some new material from New York, this time a blog post that centres on infrared. Seven days of shooting and exploring are taking there toll now, and I'm getting pretty exhausted to say the least. Its been a blistering 96degs today, the subways were even hotter, easily 100degs, which makes carrying a 9kilo camera bag feel extremely uncomfortable.

Well yesterday was the worst day of all since the trip to New York began. Torrential rain for the entire day, which saw me back at the hotel for a large part of the day doing research. Anyway, it's blue skies all day today (at last) so I am off to shoot with a list as long as your arm. Fisheye Fun in Times Square There was actually a sunset last night, but it was nothing to write home about. At 8pm the rain had stopped and the skies were breaking up, which meant it was possible to do some...

Photography in Manhattan - New York - Part Three

Hello again... Well another day of weird weather gone and another is upon me, so I thought I would get the opportunity to write another blog post as its dull and grey outside. After enjoying the best free ticket in NYC, the Statin Island Ferry (free hour round trip) Rach and I stepped out of an Arabic restaurant to find clear skies. Rather than make another attempt at Times Square, I headed back to the Brooklyn Bridge to get some more skyline shots.

Well the weather has got much better and things are definitely in the up. Blue skies are now here, but its been a testing time again. Hard Times - Times Square, work in progress I had a good crack at shooting the frenzy of Times Square last night, but its proving to be extremely tough. The biggest problem is other people. No one has any concern for my photography whatsoever, which is frankly quite rude

Photography in Manhattan - New York - Part One

Posted on 30th July 2012 - 6 Comments

Greetings from New York. I am over here for ten days shooting architecture and the wonders of this incredible city. Tonight I finally got out and about with the camera after three days of fairly unexciting weather. I travelled over the river to Brooklyn to start exploring the Bridge and surrounding viewpoints, only to discover that all the classic compositions are ruined forever. For some reason unknown to me, there is a large white steel frame building housing an old merry-go-round now right on the waters edge. All the classic panoramas will now feature this irritating eyesore, a huge white...

Photographing Architecture in Singapore

MARINA BAY SANDS HOTEL - yes, it's actually a hotel, not a docking space ship. Every night at 8pm and 9.30pm an amazing laser light show begins accompanied by saturated lighting and classical music. The balls in the harbour are covered in hand written good will messages, linked together with more towed out on a daily basis. TECH - this image is a blend of two exposures, simply to control the light levels on the waterfront, the rest of the image is from one exposure. Its all in the timing - the lasers come to rest at certain points in...
