Some may call it agressive, in the face, street photography, but when you’re in a city that is equally aggressive in using its lights to shine its nightscape, I think “flashbulb street photography” is well suited for the nightscapes of NYC. Obviously, a flash and slow shutter speed are necessary to achieve that look, but a detailed article on how to achieve this effect is coming soon (in fact, it is already scheduled for posting). Keep tuned to Photograph IO via Facebook and Twitter for the latest details!
All of these pictures were taken with a Nikon D5100, built in flash (no external flash need for the flashbulb street photography technique) and the 18-55mm VR kit lens! No, but seriously, that lens really isn’t that bad at all.
