Last week I was able to shoot some New York Street Photography and I had a great time and made a lot of new friends.
I was running a Fuji Workshop and the actual day we went out shooting as a group was gorgeous. I shot everything on that day on my trusty X70.
The next couple of days was very different weather wise. I sensibly opted to go out on the Monday with my weather sealed Fuji X-T2 and I decided to arm it with the Samyang 12mm F2 manual focus lens.
I thought I’d post a few images from an hour or so that I spent in Times Square during some pretty inclement weather.
As you can probably see, it was pretty wet and fairly dark. In fact it got substantially darker as I shot.
Even though Times Square is an amazingly wet lit environment, with all the billboards, many of the images I shot were at elevated ISOs.
I can see why Times Square is often referred to a the “Crossroads of the Universe”. Its a very eclectic place, and even though its teeming with tourists (like me!), I felt the whole essence of New York in that area. I very much enjoyed my time in New York and hope to return again soon.
I have several weddings to edit now, but hopefully soon I’ll post the images shot with the X70 also.
If you are interested, I have a very limited amount of spaces left on my UK Photography Workshops in early 2017.
