A NYC Vantage Point

I am getting ready to go on another photo trip in a few weeks. And amongst all the preparations and excitement, it gets me thinking about the places I’ve been and the places I love the most.

In recent times, my most favorite location to shoot was on the rooftop of Rockefeller Center. As many times as I’ve been to New York, I had never taken this trip to the “top of the rock”.

This photograph was taken there on a cool, September evening. Among many others taken that beautiful night, this was one of my faves. This isn’t the typical view that people share from this vantage point. While hordes of tourists gathered around the “binoculars” to get glimpses of the Empire State and One World Tower in the distance, I found myself trying to escape the crowds and….walking over to the fringes to capture images like this. I love the dramatic skyscraper shapes jutting towards the sky. The windows and various materials on the buildings create texture and variety, in an otherwise fairly monotone view. The city is portrayed as alive and energetic as it is in real life.

While my DSLR captures great images, sometimes in situations like this, where you are dealing with crowds and vying for the “perfect spot” to take in the view, it would be wonderful to have a “point & shoot” compact type camera with capabilities to match that of my DSLR. The ease and flexibility would allow me to shoot and capture images comfortably, quickly and without sacrificing quality. The camera to tackle the job just might be the Light 16 by Light Co. This smartphone sized camera uses multiple apetures to capture light and fuses the images to create a high resolution, low noise, 52 megapixels photo. Power like this, all in the palm of your hand. Incredible. Sure could use that on my travels!

In bringing you this post about my favorite travel spot, I also partnered with Light Co on their #vantagepoint project to share with my readers this exciting new technology. Just think of what it can do for you on your travels here and abroad! To learn more about the company and this compact, revolutionary camera, check out the L16 here.
