Shadows are one of my favorite things to capture. The afternoon sun in the autumn is amazing and shadows lend an added touch to photos. This photo was taken during a recent street photography workshop in Chelsea. We always work with available light and any of the many aspects that create interest in a composition no matter the weather. You can see more information about my workshops online.
Another favorite technique is to find a background with interesting patterns or light and to stand there and wait for people to walk into my shot. I call it slow photography and it is a nod to Cartier-Bresson. You can find more information on my site about my workshops and private tours.
Long Island City Kaleidoscope is a recent photo. I really like to capture silhouettes with interesting backgrounds. This was taken in a subway station.
I almost always take a few photos in the subway stations. I do love obtaining a blurred train in the background. We often work on this on my private photo tours.
