The Big Apple is a budding photographer’s dream. The curvature of the shadows in magic hour or the highlights of the passing parade in the noon sun, even the millions of pigeon flocks that create some of the most stunning backdrops against the Empire State Building. New York City can keep any photographer, even those of us with more experience, busy for decades. There is never a dull moment to be had in New York. Some of the best locations below include shooting on a cruise which hardly occurs to many photographers, but it happens to present some of the most thrilling shots known to man.
Photography Hot Spot 1:
You don’t have to go to Japan to be able to experience the backdrop and beauty of cherry blossom trees. Sakura Park is one of the most incredible pathways to experience through a lens. Some of the world’s top winners in photographic competitions hail from this very spot. Make sure you catch the blossoms mid March to April, that is when they are in full bloom.
Photography Hot Spot 2:
Giant billboards, reflective glass and light shining from all directions. With the continuous hustle and bustle a slow shutter speed can electrify your shots to no end. The commercial photographer’s dream is 5th Avenue, New York City. Why? Because it never has a dull moment or a dull face. If you’re a budding street photographer, then this is your area!
