"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." Ansel Adams

Grand Central Station

Well Just got back from New York! It was the most amazing experience! Seeing all the sites you hear about all the time! Managed to cram so much into 3 days! Spent an average of 10 hours in the city each day thats with my gear and NEW TRIPOD!!!!!!

Went to B&H which is the most amazng store I have ever seen! It covers about a block in Manhatten and is two levels high. It has everything you need. The tripod section was huge! It is run by about 200 Jewish folks. The service is great and so is their system. You get like a docket of what you buying from a floor crew member then head to a area of little booths where you pay and then to a counter where you products are brought to you by little conveyer belts and elevators! It is so fast. It al happens in about 5 mins and the store is busy as hell! So I got the new tripod and head. (same as Kirks new stuff)

I won’t go talk about all the things we did cause we did a lot. But we did see some plays ans Cirque on Broadway. We saw Jersey Boys which was amaing and will be on Australias East coast soon!

Had a few photo shoots. The first was at Brooklyn Bridge but that will be posted later. Heres a shot from last night at about 11pm at Grand Central Station which also is insane! I took a few pans before the cops told me I couldn’t use a tripod with out a permit just as I was packing up anyway.

The photo seems a little tilted but I will fix the master file.

New York was amazing! I wouldn’t like to drive there though! It is a very organised city and very easy to find you way around in!

Happy Shooting!

    Great Photo Dylan. I’m surprised they don’t have Phelps’s photo all over that flag by now 😉

  8. Cheers Thomas, it was at f11 I believe.

    Yeah Clint they did look at me a couple times as the drove past in their little golf carts.

    Cheers Flemming. The shot is only very slightly tilted but it also looks worse cause only on one side the ledge curves around and down as it gets nearer to me.

    Anne-Marie Phelps already has his fair share of publicity over here. I was suprised when I saw that there were two massive billboards of Kylie Minogue in Times Square!

    Cheers Tony. It was very busy, but it was shot at f11 for 8 seconds I think…
