Tickets? – heath ofee dot com

No trip to New York City would be complete without a visit to Grand Central Terminal (don’t even THINK about calling it a ‘station’) – and my visit was absolutely amazing thanks to Steve Beal and Chris Robins. They managed to hook us up with tripod passes and a behind the scenes tour that took us to the control centre and the clocktower! Truly an amazing experience. In the coming weeks I should be sharing a couple of these behind the scenes images, but for today (since it is #FilmFriday, after all) I thought I’d share a simple composition from the main hall.

There was just something about the harsh light and shadows playing across these ticket windows that spoke to me. I can almost feel the history through this photograph and I think capturing it on film was a great way to do this amazing building justice. I hope you agree.

  1. Awesome shot! Love the DoF here and the vintage vibe. Stupid NJ transit system making me 2 hours late, otherwise I would have been able to shoot with you guys! How’d the rest of the rolls come out?

  2. Thanks for the mention 🙂 – it was really a pleasure meeting you (finally) and shooting with ya! I love today’s image, I stare at that board all the time trying to catch the Metro North train to Rye, beautifully captured and processed!

  3. How do you go about getting a “tripod pass”??? I think it is ridiculous that you would need one in order to use a tripod. Nice shot BTW. I like the processing you applied. Well done.
