DLWS NY Day 2 – PM Shoot

Oh man, does McNally know this town or what! On a bluff overlooking the Hudson, the entire DLWS group looked across at the amazing NYC skyline as the sun set. The color slowly came up, glowed for a heartbeat, faded out and then the lights of the city came up.

As the light started to wein the textures and colors of the buildings just sucked me in looking for patterns in all the lines. I might be the only one who likes this, but I really like it.

Then the glow of the fading sun passed and the glow of the city came to life. I might be a simple mtn boy but I just loved the light. Oh yeah, I’m a photographer, we love light!

Then there was the last gasp of available light with the glow going at full blast. Simply gorgeous! The key to making these images was first letting the camera sort out the various light sources with Auto White Balance. Next is under exposure for color, black and mood. I shot all of these at -1.5. Then just follow McNally’s lead making the evening just a blast!
