NYC Post I

Ahhhh....I love this city, especially when it comes to street shooting. I bought my first SLR (yes young people, there was no "D") about a year before my first trip to NYC. It was quite an experience walking around the city setting up a tripod and trying to capture long exposures of traffic lights. Since then, I'd like to think I have learned a lot, so here I am back with camera in hand.

The great thing about NYC is the fact that half the time when you shoot people, it is so busy that the subjects usually don't notice they are being photographed. When they do catch you, they hardly seem to care. It is one thing that I miss about living in a big city. Try standing ten feet in front of a stranger and taking a picture of them in Denver. First of all, they will notice you. Second, they probably won't be happy about it. It makes shooting here much more pleasurable.

Here are a few images I shot in my first 24 hours here. More to follow, I'm sure.
