If you follow me on Instagram, @stylish_sista, you saw a couple of my favorite photos from when my mom and sister visited me in NY. Them wanting to see the Brooklyn Bridge was THE PERFECT excuse for a photo shoot. Versus us paying to go to a real photographer I whipped out my DSLR. The hardest part about shooting in a place like the Brooklyn bridge, or any place in New York City rather, is that you have to battle thousands of people for a shot and inevitably someone will be in your photo. AND, you also have to get over the fact that people are staring at you (which doesn’t bother me anymore haha).
TaeTip: When in a tourist heavy location and looking for someone to help you take a photo, look for someone with a similar camera as you. Set the settings how you want them. And stand/angle yourself in the direction you would like to take the photo in. Ask them to take a few shots because chances are that someone was blinking or one is blurry, etc. Also! Offer to take a photo of them in return! 🙂
So here are a few of my favorite shots below. Aren’t my girls beautiful?!
