So much to shoot and always so little time!
New York is just an incredible place to shoot, although that's not exactly a revelation. I have grown to really love visiting there. Even returning to the same spots, I always find new stuff to shoot. It's just an insanely rich photographic environment.
Being a big city, New York really comes to life at night. I think if I lived there I would be out with the camera every night. There is literally something at every turn. I don't know how I would ever get any sleep. I would constantly feel like I was missing something!
When there, I love taking photos of the little things I come across, such as the photo below. It's a simple kebab stand on a corner, but little scenes like this are interesting to me. For these quick snaps in low light, I usually shoot at about f/2 with a higher ISO and go handheld. There's something to be said about leaving the tripod at home, even at night.
