I have been wanting to shoot Soho at night since I  photograph a lot in this area during the day.  By 10 pm the streets down around Broome Street were pretty empty so I was able to capture some street shots without too many people walking into them.  Soho holds a really special place in my heart because I remember shooting around there when I was in photography school.  It was pretty run down but had a few great artists living and showing their work.  Today Soho (which stands for South of Houston Street) is known for its trendy stores and multi-million dollar lofts.  I liked it better when it was an artist haven but the wonderful architecture has been beautifully preserved and I still love the area.

The reflection of the street and traffic lights really cast beautiful colors on the great architecture of the buildings below

  1. Another great bunch of photos, Karen. I love the metallic look of some of them, especially the third one. The faces in the window in the fifth photo from the end made me do a double take, so to speak.

    • Thank you Marina! I don’t use flash but bracket my shots by one stop. The second photo is combining all three shots in Nik HDR Efex 2, then working in Lightroom 4, filters in Nik Color Efex 4, Topaz Clean and Photoshop. The third photo is not HDR but one of the bracketed shots worked in Lightroom 4, Nik Color Efex 4, Topaz Clean and Photoshop. The majority of the time I work in Lightroom 4 and Nik Color Efex 4. I also shoot aperture priority and on a tripod for night photography. I think your photography is great! Don’t be afraid to experiment.

      • I am not very patient in post processing Karen! You’re a master at it! Ahh, the tripod and bracketing! I am hopeless at that! Thank you for sharing as you never know when I might set my mind to it 🙂
