Behind The Lens

This photo was taken at one of the piers along the West Side Highway in Manhattan.
It was in December so it was already getting dark by mid afternoon. This photo was taken right around the time the sun would set had it not been so foggy.
Because of the lack of sunlight in the photo, it is mostly lit by the street lights that are along the pier.
This photo was shot handheld with a Nikon D500 and a 24-70 f2.8.
When initially taking this photo, I was fascinated with the fog that was surrounding everything. The fog really paired well with the metallic look of the telescope. The lights in the background just added a little bit more to the photo to make it more interesting.
I edited the photo in Lightroom Mobile on my phone. I didn’t do too much to change it but just to add a more moody feel to it.
In my camera bag
What is in my bag varies depending on what I’m doing. For a day in the city, I’ll always have the D500 and I’ll usually have something wider, the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and an 85 f1.8 for street photography.
When going around the city, or wherever you may be, try to find somewhere new. Chances are the places with all the crowds will not be the place you’ll get a photo that stands out (unless that’s what you’re going for). Try to go off the beaten path. Give yourself time to explore. This photo was taken at a pier where nobody was at. When it’s not cloudy this spot gives great views of Manhattan yet very few people are ever there when I am.
