New York street photography

During our stay in New York for the Ultimate workshop weekend I did not have a lot of free time, but I still tried to squeeze in some extra time for some street photography because let’s be honest in New York it’s amazing to shoot this kind of stuff.


Today some of my results.
I wish I had some more time but it is as it is 😀

Using backlights in street photography

One of the things a lot of people ask me is “how to get instant WOW effects in street photography”
My first answer is always “there is no this will always work solution”.


You will always have to look for the story, the setting etc. but one of the things that will indeed come close to a certain WOW effect (at least for me) is using backlights. During our trip in New York I shot these shots just before sunset.

4K video shot during the New York workshops

Today I share a video we shot during the workshops in New York.
This was the first trip we used a 4K camera, the Sony AX100.
I have to say, it rocks….


I will post a small review later in the month.
But today here is the link to the video shot in New York.
You can select the 4K option from the YouTube preferences.


If you like what you see and also want to join one of these workshops, I have some great news.
August 29-30-31 I will be back in New York and do a 3 day Ultimate Workshop Weekend in this location, we still have some tickets left, visit this link for more information and registration.
