Tips for Photographing New York City


Be Patient!
New York City can sometimes feel like it is running on fast forward. Everyone is in a hurry and everything is always changing. When you see a shot, don't be tempted to move on immediately after you capture it. The scene will be completely different in a minute. The image of the Flatiron Building below required almost an hour of patience. I took many shots leading up to this one, capturing this shot with the foreground free of people, some NYC taxis for local feel and no other major distractions.

Plan and Be Prepared
Have a plan and do some research. It will be the difference between good shots and great shots. Going out with a blank slate can be fabulous for street photography, but getting that postcard worthy shot of the city is going to take some prep work. Unless you are already familiar with New York City, bring a city and subway map or a guide who knows the area. Google Street View and Google Earth can be fantastic resources to explore the areas you are visiting. To prepare for the picture below, I used a reference to find the direction the sun would rise on this day and plotted it on Google Maps. I was able to arrive and set up my tripod within a few feet of where I ultimately took this shot in Liberty State Park. Arriving at 5AM, that was greatly preferable to running up and down the 1.5-mile long walkway to find the spot.

Top Five Must-Photograph Places in New York City

Central Park
A vast swath of nature in central Manhattan, Central Park contains many fantastic locations to photograph as well as 36 unique bridges.

Guggenheim Museum
Of all the fantastic museums in the city, none are quite the work of art themselves as the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Guggenheim.
