Photo by myself at Grand Central Terminal, at 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue.
Above, possibly one of the most breathtaking spaces in the New York, and certainly one of my favorite. The main waiting room at Grand Central is successful because of the lighting.
The main space is lit with the warm glow of incandescent lights, while frosted glass skylights provide a white light in the background. The gigantic columns are backlit by the skylights in a dramatic yet subtle way.
On Monday, the space was filled with people, most of them there to gawk at the architecture.
For those interested in Street Photography, do visit this site belonging to Dave Beckerman, a fine New York photographer.
In this latest post, Dave shares his techniques to getting great candids out on the street. I definitely picked up a couple tricks! Dave is a longtime NYC resident, who seems to have taught himself photography. He takes a beautiful array of photographs, from landscapes to cityscapes to street candids.
Most of Dave Beckerman's images are in black and white, but you would never notice that anything was missing.
You can purchase prints of Dave Beckerman's photography, as well. To view his work, click here
