NYC street photography with Steve Hill

I love street photography. Getting out into the streets, looking for that unique image that captures a moment, tells a story or gives us an insight into the human spirit can be very challenging. Add to that the need to be quick with the camera and you have the makings of a wonderful photographic event.

This past weekend we had the good fortune to be in the presence of a knowledgeable and successful NYC photographer, Mr. Steve Hill. Our group received a first class tour of Hell's Kitchen with someone who has a unique insight into the neighborhood and it's many denizens. Along with the tour came a large dose of photography tricks and tips, suggestions and plenty of inspiration.
Though the day was threatened with thunderstorms it did not deter us from braving the elements. I for one was looking to get that great 'lights reflected on wet streets' look. Unfortunately the weather turned out to be surprisingly cooperative. We did get some torrential downpours that caused us all to quickly seek shelter but it came at the end of our stay with Steve and only lasted a half hour or so. So instead of a day of steady rain it seemed as if we got all of it in one solid downpour.

All in all it was a very enjoyable day with good friends and plenty of fun. Judging from the responses and the amount of images posted it was a great success. I for one LOVE shooting in NYC and don't seem to get there as much as I'd like to. Hopefully that will change in the future.

To see member images from the day's escapades check out the album 'NYC Street Photography with photographer Steve Hill' on our meet up page.

Thanks to Steve Hill for his knowledge, patience and great company. Check out his group at Learn Street Photography.

  1. Does it always rain when you go to a big city?? I remember Boston. Too bad I could not make this one.
