Rob Masao McCarthy (@wrongrob) is a father of three in Brooklyn, New York. Outside of his day job as a freelance digital media consultant and photographer, Rob gets his thrills scaling New York City's tallest bridges, trams, roofs and skyscrapers to shoot the city from above. "I first developed an interest in photography shooting street portraits of the people of New York City. Then I realized that I was really interested in the city itself as a subject," he says. "I discovered that the higher up and further away I got, the more the immense city was reduced to shapes, lines and angles. There is a peace and universality in that geometry that I really like. Somehow it makes the city more human." Want to refine the compositions of your cityscapes? Here are Rob's tips: Pay attention to depth of field in your frame. Try to include a distinct foreground, middle ground and background, which helps create a sense of scale and distance. A mix of different building heights helps too. Look for an interesting street angle within the buildings that will draw your viewers into the photo. Avoid shooting straight in front of you and placing the primary subject in the middle of the frame. To add atmosphere and mood to cityscape shots, shoot on cloudy or rainy days. Hard, bright light is not your friend! Stay safe and law-abiding, of course, but if you're trying to get to a building's upper levels, skip the elevator and look for the stairs. You'll be surprised where you end up. To view more photos and videos from a bird’s-eye perspective of New York, be sure to follow @wrongrob.
Today, 11 Formula One teams head to Brazil's Autódromo José Carlos Pace (Interlagos) for the final round of this year’s 19-race championship. German driver Sebastian Vettel has dominated the season, winning 12 of the races and earning enough points in previous races to secure the championship for team Red Bull (@redbullracing). Although the championship won't be determined at Interlagos, the race will be particularly significant for fans of Brazilian driver Felipe Massa (@massafelipe) who will be driving for Ferrari for the last time and doing so at his home country's racetrack. To tune in to the event in real time, be sure to tap the blue location text above this image. You can also follow some of the drivers for a look behind-the-scenes: @alo_oficial (Ferrari), @lewishamilton (Mercedes), @schecoperez (McLaren) and @grosjeanromain (Lotus). Photo by @diogoventurelli
Vlad Babushkin (@vladviper5) is a 16-year-old living in Tokyo, Japan, who documents the striking architecture of his city on Instagram. Many of his photos are taken after the sun has gone down, when he uses long exposure photography to capture the city's frenetic activity. "I use Slow Shutter Cam (iOS) primarily to shoot city views at night. The app is great not just for cityscapes, but also for capturing the activity in a city after dark. Try staking out a high vantage point to capture the light trails from moving traffic." For shooting, "you need a tripod. It's also important to find a dark place to shoot. If there is a lot of light around the subject you're capturing or in front of your phone, the photo will be too bright." "Sometimes the photo you capture could use some editing. I usually use PicsPlay Pro (iOS and Android) to adjust colors and tones before sharing to Instagram." Follow @vladviper5 for more inspiring long-exposure photos.
CNN International correspondent Patrick Oppmann (@cubareporter) has lived in Cuba for over two years with his wife and two children. He shares scenes of his daily life there on Instagram, sharing moments from a part of the world many long to visit. Patrick's inspiration comes from the the responses to his photos and videos. "I read lots of comments from Americans who wish they could visit the incredible island that’s just 90 miles away. I also enjoy receiving comments from many Cubans who, because of politics or Cuba’s financial problems, have had to leave the island," he says. "They have written me to say that my photos provide a window to the homeland that they desperately miss. To have that kind of impact is both an extraordinary opportunity and privilege." One of Patrick's favorite places to photograph is the Malecón seawall that protects the city. "It has been called the largest sofa in the world and each day thousands of Cubans take to the wall to take a seat, share a bottle of rum, play music or just cool off from the stifling heat."
