Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken during a trip to New York with my son George in late September 2011.
Time
Taken late evening.
Lighting
I used a tripod at a low angle to emphasise the height of the building, create a dramatic angle and also keep static areas of the image sharp.
Equipment
Nikon D3X, Nikkor 14-24mm Lens, Manfrotto tripod. Photoshop CC, ISO200 f4 1/15 sec....(light trails added in photoshop)
Inspiration
I love the atmosphere and life of New York especially at night and wanted to capture the mood and excitement.
Editing
Yes I added the light trails in photoshop and removed some of the colours leaving a reduced tonal range.
In my camera bag
These days my kit comprises of a Nikon D810, Nikon D800E, Nikon f2.8 14-24mm lens, Nikon f2.8 24-70mm lens, Nikon f4 70-200mm lens and 3 Nikon SB910 flashguns.
Feedback
My advice would be to search out an angle with the wow factor by hand. When you find it use a tripod for maximum stability. Then just experiment with shutter exposures and modify until you find pleasing effects. Its always worth bracketing to, especially with high contrast subjects at night so you have a range of exposure information to blend if needed.
