So, are you joining Rick SammonJuan PonsSmugmug and me in Times Square this Saturday for Rick Sammon’s Times Square Shooting Session? If not, you should be! It is free and, best of all, fun.

I’ll be posting images from Times Square this week along with assorted, miscellaneous and random tips as I see fit! For more information about shooting in Times Square and all over NYC, check out my book Photographing New York City on Amazon or in bookstores.

Just like there is an unlimited number of people in Times Square, there are myriad varieties of motion you can capture. Handheld or with a tripod (watch out for tripod police and that you aren’t blocking the flow of traffic), you can practice panning movements (try 1/6 to 1/15 second on shutter priority mode) or exposures that capture a variety of movement in the scene. And since it is digital, practice all you want.
