New York is one of the world's most photographed cities and it can be challenging to capture your own unique perspective through photographs. This article will guide you to both some classic NYC photo spots as well as less well known gems that make for some truly incredible shots.
Bethesda Terrace in Central Park is an incredible spot for photography. With its tiled ceiling, perfect symmetry and column arches - which attract many tourists as well as locals - Bethesda Terrace has become an invaluable backdrop for both professional and social media photos alike. To capture an unobstructed picture, arrive early as this popular tourist spot attracts both tourists and locals.
Brooklyn Bridge is an iconic part of NYC, and many popular Instagram photos and professional images have been captured from it. Situated in DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass), this area serves as a photographer's haven. Washington Street side of the bridge provides great composition opportunities with natural rules of thirds, leading lines, and symmetry - perfect for making Instagram pictures!
Fifth Avenue is an iconic shopping street and there are countless iconic locations to photograph on its stretch. One of our favorites during Winter months is Saks Department Store Window Stories; in Spring or Summer you could try shooting some shots of NY Public Library or cherry blossom trees blooming!
