Under the Skin of the Big Apple
Waiting in Grand Central, New York. This was one of my first photographs. In this city you are constantly surrounded by people, yet for some reason this makes you feel lonely. It’s a strange feeling that I wanted to try and capture, so I waited for someone to stop and not move for the duration of a 6 second exposure. It took a while for this to happen, but eventually this woman stopped in the right spot and didn’t move for a few minutes. Canon 10D, 6 sec at f8, ISO 100, 50mm lens.
Subways in motion, New York. When you have preconceived notions of how New York should be photographed, you will travel here and try to capture those specific images. Perhaps it is a shot of the tower and steel ropes of the Brooklyn Bridge, or an image of the Empire State Building? Yet there are so many ways to capture the city in iconic ways that are outside of the norm. Here I waited on a track that narrowed at the end where it looks like the trains collide. It creates an incredibly graphic view. Canon 40D, 0.4 sec at f4, ISO 100, 17mm lens.
