My approach to Architectural and Industrial Photography: respect it and keep the essence. I follow the Outdoor Leave No Trace principles. No trespassing. Minimal disruption. For maximum efficiency, I do a rough pre- plan: location; shots; light. Some of the areas I shoot are " sketchy"; thus, I try to minimize my own exposure. Travel light with only essentials.
Shooting Bowery St., scary close encounter along the Canal Lock. Always have an Exit Strategy.
