I’m sorry for the lack of updates lately, but I’ve spent a few days in New York and because of all the electronics restrictions on flights from the Middle East to US, I left my laptop at home, taking with me just the camera. The good thing is that although you have to check in your camera, lenses are ok to keep in the cabin.
I’ve been to New York a couple of times before, but this was the first time when I brought a tilt-shift lens with me, thinking I’ll photograph some of the funky new architecture popping up in between the old skyscrapers. I did come away with a couple of shots I like, but I thought I’ll start with a photograph of a beautiful morning in Central Park by The Lake (that’s the actual name of this lake). One of the advantages of having a jetlag is that in the first few days after you’ve traveled a few time zones towards the West, you’re up very early and since our hotel was right next to Central Park, it was an obvious choice for some early morning photography.Technical details | Camera: NIKON D800 | Focal length: 19mm | Shutter speed: 1/500s | Aperture: ƒ/4 | ISO: 200
