Travelogue: New York Shadow Puppets

New York City has some of the most unique light I have ever experienced in my travels. At times it feels like it’s been arranged perfectly for us Street & Social Documentary photographers. Combined with the density of the city and it’s endless supply of people. It’s hard not to stumble upon something interesting to photograph. Have a listen and feel free to comment. TW

Purple

“PURPLE!! HEY PURPLE, WHERE YA GOIN GIRL!!” “DAMN GIRL COME BACK!” When I was walking up Broadway Avenue this woman blasted past me. A woman on a mission. Just as she rips through the intersection a group of guys start calling out to her. Begging her to come back and asking her where she’s going. You gotta love how much “life” is on the streets of New York. It never gets old. In regards to the images, I think I

Travel Journal: New York (Day 2)

Saturday was my photography day as my wife likes to put it. Walk her to the closest shopping area, map out her stores, then carry on. So my first instinct was to head straight down to Chinatown and Little Italy. These are always locations I have to hit when I’m in New York. There’s just so much chaos and activity there. I did make one pit stop on my way down at Dashwood Books to pick up a copy of

Travel Journal: New York

I’m back again. Back in the city that never sleeps. There’s something about New York that I can’t get enough of. The people here seem to let their personalities out. Not shy to let people see who they are, unlike Toronto which feels very reserved. I landed on Friday night, dropped my bags off at the hotel, met up with the wife for dinner, then headed out for a late night walk through midtown and Times Square. It was a

Warwick Hotel

A figure waits patiently… Silhouetted by the light of The Warwick Hotel… Waiting for his contact to arrive. (Part of an on-going series) There is nothing more that I love than shooting on Kodak Cinema film. I’ve written about this in the past and have documented how people can develop their own Motion Picture Film here. The colour this film outputs at night is stunning and something I’m looking forward to using when I manage to get a Hasselblad XPan.

Only on Broadway

I don’t normally take pictures of street performers. Don’t know if wandering around with a snake and having people place it on their shoulders counts as being a performer but sure why not. Everyone there had their jaws slack watching this snake wrap around the guys neck and I kept wondering whether or not he’ll be able to get it off his neck afterwards.

Almost

Gah! Sometimes shooting from the hip is good when you want to be quick and achieve a specific angle. Sometimes you manage to get the shot your looking for. And other times you fail like I did above! I love the look on the womans face but the composition is obviously a fail. If only I had tilted down a touch more I think I would have gotten the shot I was looking for in my mind. -Dominic Soho, NYC

Cat on The Hat

I’m always amazed at what I see when wandering the streets of New York City. I’ve never seen a city so full of life. Everyone’s always expressing themselves and showing the world who they are. Toronto is a more conservative city where people tend to keep to themselves. When walking back from the office this past Monday, on my way to meet up with the wife at Macy’s, I stumbled upon this guy. With a cat on his hat. Interesting.
