Capturing the Pace of Times Square

New York City’s Times Square is known worldwide as a popular destination for a variety of reasons. The brilliant, changing displays of lights and advertisements have been famous for many decades, and there is no better place to see the pace of the city as exhibited by the traffic that runs through the square.

I visited Times Square this week working on, among other things, capturing a sense of the hurried pace in a somewhat abstract way. I focused on capturing traffic rushing through the square at night with the bright colorful lights as a backdrop. I used shutter speeds between 1/3s and 1s, with corresponding apertures to provide the correct exposure, while panning with the subject.

Below are a few images captured during my visit.
