Big Apple, Little Apple

This set of eight images shows the juxtaposition of streets: from New York City to Manzanita, Oregon. New York City being known as “The Big Apple” and Manzanita being Spanish for “little apple”, I felt that these two towns were very apt for comparison in many different ways. I chose to shoot at night in order to have the least amount of people and traffic in each of my shots but also to give the images another sense of cohesiveness. My goal in shooting was to have images that have very complex details and a scientific like feel to them. To make this series have a very straight and correct images in the sense of perspective, I decided to shoot all eight images with a 24mm tilt-shift lens at f/8 and tripod mounted.
