Final Project Statement

For my final project, I plan to attend various events in New York, specifically night markets. These markets are places where people can celebrate and share diverse food, music, and other cultural activities found in NYC. My goal is to capture the lively atmosphere of these events as people enjoy the various activities happening throughout the night. I plan to take photographs of the performers, food vendors, and other visitors to showcase the vibrant culture of New York City. I will use different techniques such as shallow and extensive depth of field, blurred motion, and other earlier techniques to capture the essence of the event. I have already decided to attend two-night markets – the Queens Night Market in Flushing Meadows Park and the one at Industry City in Brooklyn. I am still deciding which other night markets to visit as there are a few more happening in May before my project is due. I will also be on the lookout for any other events that might pique my interest.

Final Project Statement

I plan to capture the different street photography for my final project.
that involves capturing candid moments of everyday life in public places, typically in urban environments. It often focuses on people, architecture, and the details of city life. Times Square in New York City is one of the most diverse tourist destinations in the world. Visitors from all walks of life, ethnicities, and cultures can be found exploring the bustling streets, enjoying the vibrant lights, and taking in the multitude of attractions. The diversity of tourists in Times Square reflects the global appeal of the city itself, drawing people from every corner of the globe. You can encounter tourists from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas, and beyond, each bringing their unique perspectives and experiences to the iconic location. This diversity adds to the richness of the Times Square experience, making it a truly global melting pot of cultures and backgrounds.

During my spring break, I am going to spend some time shooting photos around the area of Times Square. I will try to spend more time shooting photos in the city while at the same time doing videography as my current hobby, where I shoot videos of my dance crew friends covering a song. I mostly shoot videography almost every week in my life and we do this for fun the videos that I shoot are uploaded onto YouTube.
