New York Travel Photography

Below is a list of 10 ideas on ways to improve your New York travel photography.

Like we said earlier these aren’t rules to stick to and we encourage you to find your own path.

However, we hope the ideas and tips that we have listed inspire you to approach the streets of New York with an open mind and most of all to capture stunning images.

1. Let People Get in The Way

New York is a hustling and bustling city, home to over 8 million people.

Inevitably it is difficult to find spots where there aren’t people.

However, our idea is that you should embrace the people that fill the streets.

Take the photograph above for example.

I was drawn to this cool looking bike. However a New Yorker had other ideas and just walked right in front of me. Instead of cursing the New Yorker or moaning I pressed the shutter button.

The result for me is an engaging and lively photograph that depicts the busy lifestyle of New York.

Within two seconds he had walked past and then I also grabbed the photo I had originally intended on.

Which photo do you prefer?

Bike on the Street in Soho.

Obviously there are times when you don’t want people in your  travel photos.

However, New York is very fast moving. Within a few seconds another opportunity will present itself.

Just wait in a spot and let the magic unfold.
