I’m in New York filming 2 videos for the artist series. I had the day off today so I decided to do a little photography tour of New York City.

In this video I’ll take you to see Saul Leiter’s Apartment, W. Eugene Smith’s Jazz Loft and Richard Avedon’s home/studio.

Filmed entirely on my Sony RX100 Mk IV in Slog2. Color graded in DaVinci Resolve.

My name is Ted Forbes and I make videos about photography. I’ve been making photographs most of my life and I have a tremendously deep passion for photography that I want to share with you on YouTube.

The Art of Photography is my channel and I produce photography videos to provide a 360 degree look into the world of making images. We all want to get better so lets do this together!

I make videos covering famous photographers, photography techniques, composition, the history of photography and much more.

I also have a strong community of photographers who watch the show and we frequently do social media challenges for photographers to submit their own work. I feature the best and most interesting on the show when we do these so come check it out and get involved!

  7. Fluffy Seal says:

    good music , nice postproduction,nice images.

  8. Great intro music! Thanks for taking the time to show us some photographic history! Great video, now comes the hard work editing the story you are photographing.

  9. Rich Klein says:

    You never cease to increase the quality and enjoy ability of your videos Ted. Excellent once again.

  10. Awesome video. What a contrast having renaissance contrapunctal music combined with New York! Did met with a GREAT Dutch photographer of our age this weekend, you might want to have a look at his work, he published 7 (I think) photobooks:

  11. Just wow! Your video footage looks very close to top notch 35mm motion picture film. Love it!

  12. Jim Cutler says:

    This is so well done, good actual content, grading is superb and the music perfect. And I shoot here all year long. Great piece.

  13. Great tour, Ted, thanks!

  14. Ardel Paris says:

    Did you bump into Casey? πŸ˜‰

  15. blackurtis says:

    Ted, come do a tour in Glasgow! Happy to host you πŸ™‚

  16. Rick Mentore says:

    ,,,,,,,not sure which makes me more exciting, when UPS shows with a box from B&H or an AoP post! AoP videos are very needed, very important for unschooled enthused amateur photographers like me self. Thanks Ted

  17. ConceptsBySP says:

    That tune is WICKED (along with the color grading). Did you compose the score yourself?

    Respect (from Zoo York City).

  18. Nigel Rumsey says:

    That is quite geeky, but good fun!

    I'm from London but I got to go to New York in 2013, and I walked around lower Manhattan for a week sure at any moment I was going to bump into Saul Leiter. God knows what I would have said had I done so, but just to get a shot of the great man would have more than made my trip.

    He died 6 months after. I'm not someone who's generally effected by the death of people I don't know but in that instance I was really saddened.

    Looking forward to more of the artist series.

  19. Pablo Clavo says:

  20. Be still my heart….this music is just…perfect

  21. Panos Likos says:

    You are great Ted! I love the way think about the image in every form (video, foto). Great job!

  22. PLEASE tell me what the title of the intro music is!!!

  23. Got it! Intro music: Four part Mass: I. Kyrie – William Byrd

  24. So cool. I love this kind of stuff! I did a similar kind of tour the first time I went to NY… it blew my mind!

  25. @ 1:01 That is literally my apartment building down the street from B&H all that construction next door is a pain in the @ss lol Great shots!!! always a lot to capture here!

  26. Very cool we're in New York right now and keeping an eye out for these spots

  27. Great cinematography and music Ted

  28. Majo Peroni says:

    Loved this video Ted!! Everything about it is outstanding; apart from the amazing nerd tour πŸ™‚ the photography, music and editing !!

  29. Well done video, love the balance between picture, music and editing, and color grading etc. Great work!! what camera did you use, the Canon G5X?

  30. beautiful photos Mr.Forbes!
    absolutely amazing!
    If and when you have time, please reply to this comment i have a question about a lens that i am going to buy
    thanx πŸ™‚

  31. how much do you get paid per month in NYC? how do you start your own photography company?

  32. Ted you beguiling tease: don't keep all these good people in the dark – tear back the damn curtain and spill how you did this: gear, edit etc Come on!

  33. Hi Ted, your video documentary and photo tour of NYC was really well done as I can tell you put quite a bit of time into the shooting and editing. Background music was a great choice also, clearly getting across the correct mood for the video. What more can you say about the East Village and the infamous, and caring, Saul Leiter.
    It's hard to believe Saul's only been away from us for 3-1/2 years now. It seems much longer than that to me. πŸ™ I subscribed to your channel Ted, and liked this video because I was so moved by it…Thank you for spending the time to create this work of art for all to come and peruse… Sincerely, Luis Z πŸ™‚
