~An umbrella race and the crosswalk marks the starting gate~ Being a street photographer on rainy nights during rush hour is always a fun yet tasking experience. There’s a lot to shoot, but that comes with getting smacked in the head with countless umbrellas passing by, cars whisking water on you as they go by, and yes, even the puddles you look at and say you won’t step in but end up soaking your feet anyways. It’s the little trying elements to it that make it that much more fun to do. I always feel rewarded after another night shooting these streets • • • • • #igtones #agameof10k #moodnation #rawurbanshots #infinity_urban #urbanromantix #urbanaisle #streetgrammers #citygrammers #cityunit #streetleaks #streetclassics #streetshared #clickcity #nycprimeshot #street_ninjas #serialshooters #streetdreams #streetdreamsmag #street_focus_on #thosenewyorkstreets #tonekillers #moodytones #ourmoodydays #nycity #newyork_world #nyc_explorers #loves_nyc #nycdotgram

Here’s a video of some daytime and night scenes of uptown Manhattan I put together. I’ve started to put a street video series together that’ll be coming out steadily. It’s by far my favorite type of content to shoot in the city. Trying to get a regularity going with videography into my workflow. It’s a lot but with a full time job as well it sure does keep me productive and taking advantage of my time by creating so much. Crazy how vivid the memories of my days become from shooting all this video. Enjoy!

~Who needs props when you have your own cinematic movie spots?~ Spoiled with these scenes uptown every day, and it’s getting anything but old. Finding myself spending less time at locations taking pictures and more time taking the place in, making it easier to get a fee for what I want to capture easier. There’s also nothing like looking into a live movie scene right in front of you • • • • • #killaframez #street_ninjas #visual_creatorz #creativeoptic #shotsdelight #epicimagez #clickcity #supremeshutter #depthobsessed #dof_addicts #depthdiscovered #streetscapes #streetleaks #streetgrammers #citygirls #streetclassics #streetshared #streetmobs #vis#visionofpictures #visionofpictures #serialshooters #edgygrams #moodnation #dopeclickz #gramheist #eliteklub #ourmoodydays #all2epic5k #tonekillers

~Umbrella ceilings accompanied by some moody ass feelings~ I love shooting rain/people with umbrellas for many reasons. A huge one being that they make such personalized and custom frames. People are always walking in and out of your shot and instead of wishing they weren’t there, it’s fun to welcome what all they can bring to a shot. If you want an example just look almost anywhere on my feed. It’s fun to let the city compose the image for you and just roll with it. I love the ceiling the two umbrellas in the foreground made here to shelter the person in focus on the crosswalk whose shadow is perfectly casted by the car headlights • • • • • • • • • #depthobsessed #dof_addicts #depthdiscovered #nightshot #nightshots #nightshooters #nightowls #nycprimeshot #agameof10k #rainynight #nightphotography #moodnation #cityscapephotography #streetclassics #streetshared #streetleaks #urbanaisle #str#streetscenesmag #streetscene #streetdreams #streetdreamsmag #sonyvisuals #citygrammers #savageframes #eclectic_shotz #urbanromantix #thestreetpr0ject #rawurbanshots #infinity_urban

~A gritty night filled with Gotham City lights~ Almost feel like I just got rained on after every time I look at this shot. I was heading home from work during probably the hardest rain I’ve experienced this Winter and I couldn’t help but sit in it for a moment and try to capture a mass quantity of this rain coming down. Finding a smoke stack in the background is always a plus in a street scene. Driving that night doesn’t look like it was much fun either! • • • • • • • • • • #cinesomnia #photocinematica #dreamermagazine #streetgrammers #streetscapes #cityscapes #citygrammers #trappingtones #depthobsessed #dof_addicts #depthdiscovered #streetleaks #streetshared #streetclassics #street_focus_on #urbanaisle #all2epic #agameof10k #fatalframes10k #citykillerz #killaframez #dopeclickz #visual_creatorz #sonyimages #sonyvisuals #urbanromantix #urbanandstreet #street_ninjas #rawurbanshots #nycprimeshot

~An out-of-focus figure on a street scape in the dead of winter~ I like some nice weather like anyone else, but there’s nothing nicer than experiencing the city when it feels like Gotham City, just out of every moody movie you’ve loved of this place. Part of why I’m addicted to shooting these scenes. • • • • • • • • • • #dopeclickz #visualgrams #citygrammers #urbanromantix #urbanandstreet #urbanaisle #streetleaks #streetclassics #streetshared #agameof10k #serialshooters #fatalframes10k #moodytones #trappingtones #tonekillers #toneception #streetscenesmag #str#streetdreamsmag #streetdreams #streetmobs #rawurbanshots #streetgrammers #nightshooters #nightowls #nightphotography #supremeshutter #savageframes

~Raindrops caught in headlights, trying to capture these details just right~ For all the rainy shots I post, i take 50 for every 1 or 2 I capture the details just right in. It’s impossible to be perfect, but it’s not impossible to shoot enough until you get the end result you’re searching for. I spent a good 10 minutes being rained on at this intersection with a demand to capture some rain splashing off of someone’s umbrella. It’s a visual version of fishing or hunting.

Sometimes I thank myself when I get out of work and Manhattan is nice and moody for me, because I know I always bring my camera charged with me ready for some rain or gritty conditions. Here’s a video I made of some footage I took uptown on a single rainy night after work recently. Learning how easy it is to get content when you’re always shooting. Starting to stack up finished videos so plenty more to come!
