2022 32 Night Photography 1069 marco ciavolino post

Times Round, NYC

Times Square, in New York City, is the nexus of everything that is New York. Filled with signs, actors, characters, musicians, stores, restaurants, and acting as the gateway to Broadway and its amazing shows, in Times Square one feels like they are in the center of the world. Fill the space with locals and visitors from a thousand cultures and lands, and you having a global experience found almost no where else.

Behind the Scenes

This shot was done with my fisheye add on lens attached to my retired Pixel 5. These lenses won't work with phone cases, so I carry my Pixel 5 and the lens in a case. There are so many add on lenses. This one (MOVO) has realy nice glass as you can see. It will usually produce a circular image and you can crop and trim as required.

It's holiday season and we're all supposed to play by the rules and be nice, right? Well after a year of photography rules, we're going to encourage all our community members to Break The Rules in this final challenge of 2022. Breaking the rules is an important photography method, I even dedicated a whole chapter about it in my Shooting 101 Photography Course. You can view this chapter THIS week for free, here. Shoot at an angle, overexpose, create motion blur. As long as you are breaking with intention, your artistic license will enable the viewer to view your frame this week in the most unique and creative way. Of course you can also take the literal approach and convey someone or something that is breaking some rule. Rules also act as a helpful framework for newer and less-experienced artists. This week however, we want to remind you that it is more important to understand the purpose of a rule than to follow it. And one of the best ways to do that is to break the rule. So have fun this week and go and break some rules. Even crooked horizons (if you really must!).
