DP Mag: Urban Geometries

It was a busy day yesterday…the Sony a9 photos embargo lifted and my weekly column dropped. The thing about this article is it came about after Chris Gampat looked at my NYC street photos and suggested the topic.

I didn’t see what he did in the urban geometries photo and had taken it the night before the launch. There’s a David Schloss cameo in the story too.

Just a block away from the Kimpton, toward the Intrepid Museum and the Garment District, this scene presented itself. It’s what walking across a street looks like on a typical spring night in NYC. But, perhaps a film montage before a cut to the important plot-setting scene in a historic office building.

The post continues with me explaining how to use shapes, lines, colors, tones and lighting to create visually interesting and painterly photos. It also includes mentions of my daily shooter, the RX1R II ($3,298.00 on Amazon).
