I’m with clients in New York City for a twilight/night photography workshop. Although the weather is gloomy, we learned that nothing can stop the wonderful blue hour of twilight. We photographed lower Manhattan last night and ended up at the beautiful and moving World Trade Center Memorial. Enjoy!
I’m back from New York City, where I had the pleasure of attending Photo Plus Expo 2013. I also had a great time leading a city photo-walk with my very talented colleague, Deborah Sandidge. This year, we made the Flatiron Building the focus of our photo walk. After sunset, some of us hung around and did some long exposures with the heavy traffic and blue hour. I used my Nikon D800e with 24-70mm f/2.8 AFS G zoom Nikkor lens on a tripod to capture this image. I then processed it in Lightroom 5 and Color Efex Pro 4.
Check out “Blue Hour Monday,” a new weekly photo theme on Google Plus curated by Deborah and myself. All you need to do is post an image taken during the magical blue hour and use the hashtag #bluehourmonday on it. Each week, Deborah and I will pick and share some of our favorites with the G+ community!
