This photo was taken during a workshop in Hell’s Kitchen before the Coronavirus pandemic. I’m looking forward to starting up workshops and tours soon.
Photo taken during a Hell’s Kitchen street photography workshop in December 2019. The subways are great for street photography.
It has been 4 weeks since I’ve been on the subway or even shooting on the streets of the city. Fortunately, I am way behind in processing and posting thousands of photos. Sheltering in place is somewhat easier as a result. I’ve been updating all of my photo galleries. Stay home and stay safe.
There are so many ways that you can improve your photography through composition. Framing is one of them. We explore a number of different composition techniques in my workshops.

Someone asked me a few days ago if I still shoot street photography because many of the recent photos that I’ve posted are abstract street. The answer is most definitely yes! I shoot street, abstract street and lens-based-art. These photos were taken during a private photo tour in Jackson Heights, Queens.

I still remember the days before cell phones, the internet and digital photography! Yes, the world has changed and it’s obvious in photography. I know of a street photographer who is probably half my age and has a rule about not taking photos of people with their cell phones. He made that comment about one of my photos! The great thing about street photography is that we don’t all do it the same. Vive la diversity. I provide street photography on a regular basis. You can register online.
There are possible photographic opportunities everywhere. The subway stairs lend leading lines to a photo and a sense of moment. I have a street photography workshop coming up on Saturday March 2nd in Chelsea. There are only 2 spaces still available at the time of writing this post. You can register online.
