Travelogue: NY Fail

As image makers we are all inherently imperfect. The road we take is riddled with failures. Failed moments, failed light, personal fails. This helps us learn and expand our creativity. Here is one such failed attempt. This is a re-recording of the original NY Fail episode. I wasn’t happy with the quality or what was said during the post. So here’s a fresh take. Enjoy. TW

Travelogue: The Sign

Today we discuss this particular image, dubbed the sign, and whether or not a sign like this can have any effect in a large city such as New York. Now you may recognize this image from a previous Audio log dubbed “The Sign”. That’s because I’ve talked about it before. But when I listened back to it it just didn’t sound that great. The audio was quiet and muffled so I decided to take another stab at it. This time

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

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

It’s a tricky exercise as you need to find that perfect balance between your highlights and shadows. Making sure you don’t clip or clamp either. I prefer to shoot in dense urban environments as the light reflects off the buildings, which tend to

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

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.
