I was in New York City this past week. Decided to do a quick photoshoot of various street scenes. I started at 42nd Street at Broadway and walked down to 12th Street. The goal was to use motion blur, and attemp to catch the gritty nature of life in New York. The black and white was post processing using Photoshop channel mixer.

A bearded gentleman walking through a street market. This was shot using my 18-135mm lens set at 18mm. Nikon D200 set at apeture priority, ISO 100, F/4.
A street scene, motion blur shot outside The Strand near 12th Avenue in NYC. I was outside the store watching people walking by. There was one guy leaning against a phone booth for about 10 minutes reading a book. I focused on the guy reading the book and caught people walking by. My Nikon D200 set at apeture priority, F/11. I used a 18-135mm Nikkor lens set at 18mm. ISO at 100, speed at 1/10 of a second to get the motion blur.

It was getting late at night when I was heading back to Grand Central Station. I wanted to catch the motion blur of people walking across the street framed by headlights. A handheld shot just south of 30th street. This image was set at F/4, auto ISO of 200, 1/80th of a second. I used a Nikkor 50mm, F/1.8mm lens.
