Fine Art Photography: George Washington Bridge

George Washington Bridge Photography by Dwayne Tucker

Our past trip to NYC, we crossed over to New Jersey and there I made this photograph of the George Washing Bridge (GWB). At the ground level looking up, you realize the GWB’s true magnitude. When photographing an image like this one you must always be thinking about what the best possible composition could be; for your taste. (I was shooting my favorite 24mm 1.4 lens with a CPL filter and the Nikon D800.)

Street Photography: Halal Food – NYC

Halal Food

I love when the sun is setting; that late afternoon light of a New York summer stroll is magical to me. It excites me to have my camera shutter ready. Simply amazed by the amount of Halal Food Trucks I walked by. In motion, blending in like fast walking New Yorkers. I’m fast walker. Not too fast for a quick stop to compose / frame  and capture this photo. I love creating photographs like this because it keeps the eye tuned for identifying what could be a great photo. This isn’t the greatest photo but it’s a memory that will last forever and that’s great enough.

Street Photography: Feed Your Mind

Feed Your Mind

Captured on a late night train ride in NYC. This photograph is nothing more than perfect timing. I sat in the seat across. It should feel weird holding my D800 in people faces but at this point I’m over it. However, in situations alike this one I would prefer a smaller, discreet camera. It will make my subjects feel a little more comfortable. When shooting street photographs alike this one you have to keep fear out of your soul and find the image; this moment will never happen again. Your moment will never happen again, do what you have to to get the image.
