Times Square Photoshoot Idea #1 – Pose on the TKTS red stairs
The first of the Times Square photoshoot ideas is the iconic red stairs covering the TKTS booth. To avoid big crowds of people on the stairs, shoot early in the morning.
Times Square Photoshoot Idea #2 – Stand on the barriers
There are barriers and benches all around Times Square dividing the street from the pedestrian areas. Step up onto them and strike your best city girl pose! Hail and cab or throw up a peace sign.
Times Square Photoshoot Idea #3 – Shoot from a low angle to fill the frame with billboards & buildings
Shoot from a low angle when posing on one of the barricades or benches to capture all of the billboards and buildings surrounding Times Square! The billboards are usually for Broadway shows or stores, so captures the perfect Big Apple feel.
Times Square Photoshoot Idea #4 – Shoot in the middle of Times Square for a wide angle shot
Capture the entire scene of Times Square with a wide angle lens and in the middle of the pedestrian area. My favorite spot to shoot this is facing north between 47th and 46th street to capture the iconic Coca Cola sign.
Times Square Photoshoot Idea #5 – Stand in/walk across the street
This is the quintessential NYC shot – step into the street or walk on a crosswalk in the middle of Times Square. Bonus if you capture a yellow cab!
Times Square Photoshoot Idea #6 – Visit the subway entrance
Times Square subway station is one of the busiest in New York City, and has cool entrances and signs. Avoid shooting during rush hour to avoid commuters photobombing!
