TIP: You never know who will pose for you when out and about on the streets…..I’ve met future clients out on photowalks… (remember if you want to publish the photo you will need a model release… I’m working on creating a special tool for this…stay tuned to Street-Snapper)

This is a beautiful, but unusual photo. It appears to be double exposure, and I love how intricate and unusual the City looks in it!

Street Photography can make you see different places in different light. That’s where your own personality comes into play, and where street photography can teach you to take your instinct and go for it. This boldness has certainly bled into my portrait work, client work-I’ve learned to shoot “on my toes” and trust my ability.

As New York Fashion Week kicks off, we’re very happy to be partnering with Milk Studios to bring a team of local emerging voices in fashion from Tumblr to cover the events.
You can follow Alex, Bryant, Chloe, Lucie and Miguel and see everything Fashion Week by tracking the NYFW tag.

From the Archive: Misc. lightpainting/long-exposure, San Antonio, Texas
TIP: This is an example of “when all else fails”….although nothing here has quite failed. I took the camera out of auto-focus and played around with both the aperture and the time value, and snapped a few shots.
I knew the composition I would be working with would work because of the presence of leading lines, but you can’t predict some things. I had an idea of the overall color blocking that would occur- red building right, street center, blue sky left… So that gave me the confidence to just play. When you know you have certain elements of a photo locked down, then sometimes the best thing to do is the last thing you’d do instinctively. This is how you learn about light and how the camera sees it as well. 
This is an example of how doing things ‘wrong’ will get you some ‘right’ results. Just be patient, approach it with an open mind and have fun in post-process. This is a second edit, from a revisit after 2 years of sitting ‘in the can’. The first wasn’t very exciting as I couldn’t let go of the ‘intended’ picture, but the elements came together quite nice for their own intentions. 
(Note: I liked it so much, I made it my website’s splash page)

 TIP: Shooting street festivals is one of the easiest captive audiences you can find- there’s no end to the portrait, still life, street scene you can capture in these situations, and typically everyone is relaxed and enjoying themselves, or in this case-have a specific task to accomplish which allows for great action-narrative.

FROM CARLY’S ARCHIVE: Down the line… Astoria, Queens, NYC Greek Holiday/Festival. This is a religious ceremony where people line up down the street and the clergy pass the artifact overhead as they kneel.
