Final Project Statement _ SOHO

My theme is exploring a popular district of New York that hasn’t changed. Some areas of New York have changed drastically over the years due to gentrification but this is one of the very few areas that still looks untouched. This time of year is the season I look forward to the most because of the cherry blossom trees, the warm weather, and the icy lady. Although I’ve lived in New York for over 20 years, there are some places I’ve never been around. I’ve decided Soho is the perfect place to take pictures. This part of the city showcases some of the essences of the city such as vintage architectural style, luxury, fashion, and art. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be capturing a variety of shots such as the buildings, some portraitures of “fashion” people, and art galleries, at different times of the day, and weather conditions. Some techniques that we’ve learned I’ve enjoyed doing such as reflections and freeze/ blur motion.

    I think this could be a good topic. Of the photos you submitted my favorite is the store window at night with the silhouetted people in front of it. this is a great technique for Soho as it is famous for its high end stores like Prada shown here. It gets dark pretty late these days so this may not be practical but I hope you get to try it. reflections are another way you can get something interesting from store windows. I look forward to seeing what you get.

    also that building in the third slide is a cast iron building. very characteristic of soho. definitely find away to include one of these buildings.
