Makeup Artists, Macy's

1/320th at F8, ISO 800 (28mm).

This one looks great in classic black and white, but wouldn't it be blasphemous to show makeup artists in black and white?

Holding Hands, Grand Central

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4746/holding_hands_grand_central.jpg

1.3 Seconds at F10, ISO 400 (70mm).

I've been experimenting a bit lately with movement in Grand Central.  It's very tough to get something decent and takes a lot of trial and error.  Not sure exactly where I'm going with this, but I think the goal is to capture the flow and feeling of figures in motion but still hold enough detail that you can create a story out of them.

Green Polka Dots, Subway

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4744/green_polka_dots_subway.jpg

1/60th at F2.8, ISO 3200 (28mm).

If you compare this image to the subway work of Bruce Davidson, it gives you a sense of how drastically New York has changed over the last 30 years.

This also reminds me of this image.

Urban Tigers

1/320th at F5.6, ISO 1600 (28mm).

You walk around New York with a camera searching and these images just hit you in the gut, and more and more each time you see it.  It fascinates me how the city collects and fosters tough women.  These shirts feel like a suit of armor.

Love, Chinatown

1/320th at F9, ISO 400 (28mm).

I think that graffiti artists and street photographers probably have a lot in common.

Skater, Spring Street

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4724/skater_spring_st_soho.jpg

1/200th at F3.5, ISO 400 (28mm).

It's pretty easy to create beautiful impromptu street portraits in SoHo, once you get over the initial trepidation of stopping people. There are a nearly infinite supply of interesting walls and colorful characters to seek out in the area.  The key is to pick the right background and then wait for a complementary person to walk by.  With the foot traffic, you rarely have to wait longer than 5 minutes.

With the 28mm focal length, it can also help to get real close to the subject.
