I always love jumping into the energy that NYC has to offer. I had a great long weekend in Manhattan primarily exploring the Soho and TriBeca neighbourhoods. The trip or locations I visited were all primarily found on Instagram via hashtags. It’s amazing how much information you can find following the web of hashtags and when doing this with Instagram you have the added benefit of seeing the location.
So where does the photography come in? I wanted to take a photojournalistic approach and document the hashtag trip. The goal was to shoot the locations, interact with people at the locations and also capture the journey on the way to the locations. Technically speaking, I had one camera in my hand at all times (Sony A7) and exclusively used one lens (28-70mm). I recently read a blog post mentioning that one of the best tricks to improve your photography is to pick one lens that best will serve your photography needs and master that lens. By doing this, you learn the distance, sharpness sweet spots and you end up spending less time thinking about the technicalities and more time capturing the moment.
Enjoy the neighbourhoods & photographs.
