This week’s images are from the same shoot as the silhouette images from last week. As I mentioned, we shot 95% of the images from the rooftop terrace of this apartment building, which had some incredible views. I wanted to incorporate some significant NYC views into the shoot as best I could. I even shot them while we took a break to warm up a bit.
On one of the coldest days of the year, we decided to head out to the rooftop terrace of an NYC penthouse apartment. We were looking for some nice skyline views and hopefully a nice sunset. For this weeks image, I chose to show some basic concepts I like to use during any sunset shoot and that is to include at least one silhouette. The main challenge is to include some some of the surrounding environment so it does not look like a plain silhouette image with nothing but empty space in the background. Body language is a pretty key factor here as well.
We shot 95% of this engagement shoot on this terrace, starting about an hour and a half before sunset. It was freezing cold and we needed to keep taking breaks to go inside and warm up. It was worth it as both the terrace and view were awesome.
More pictures to come. Happy New Year!
