Street Photography


I love street photography..started shooting  street photography back in Brooklyn, NY as the High School Photographer.  I didn’t go anywhere without my camera and always went into the city every chance I had which was usually at least a few times a week.  My camera back then was a fully manual Ricoh with a fixed 50mm lens.  My dad was always into photography..and maybe that’s partly what interested me about it.  The other part was just an interest in people.  I was known in High School as the girl with the camera.

Recently had the chance to go back to NYC mainly on the Upper East Side, even though I prefer shooting further south because of the Urban feel to the area which I like.  I didn’t do much shooting on this trip but a few photos that I would like to share.

I shoot street photography different from when I shot it back in the High School Days..Now I use a zoom lens not a fixed lens and still do a lot of walking around till something catches my eye but I also find a spot and stay there.  That spot sets the stage, it is a fixed spot and I let the subjects come onto the stage like a performance and when something interests me I shoot it.  Architecture also interests me especially in New York City..You are welcome to contact me if you have any further questions as well as an interest in taking lessons with me on street photography or purchasing prints.

I also have a street photography group on flickr and you are welcome to join and post photos.
