DLWS New York Day1 – PM

After that great start, the DLWS Staff walked downtown to have a killer breakfast at Norma’s. We then proceeded down to Adorama which was kind enough not only to open its door to their Ed Center to us, but gave all the participants a store coupon which was quickly put to us. So with batteries charged and new goodies in hand, we boarded the bus and headed to Canal Street.

It was a challenging shoot for me, just wasn’t feelin the love so I just walked and looked for patterns. Seeing the shadow of a water tower caught my eye so I made a click.

After a stop at Ladder 6 House (mk on that) we got back in the bus and headed to the Brooklyn Bay Bridge. This was a totally different walk across from the other day with a killer sunset lining up for us. Joe surprised the whole group by having a ballerina waiting for them on the bridge. Some marvelous images were made of her. We didn’t get there in time though, along with some of the participants, we were involved with photographing the Wall St skyline in the fading light.

Then there was the sunset it self. Let’s just say it didn’t suck. The city was a silouhette and since tripods just don’t work on the bridge, I pulled the lights out using NX2. It’s not the best option but it works here. What a day, what a group and we still have more to come!
