So I can finally say the 2nd Era Of Daniel The Cool Photography Productions Has Come to an end which lasted from January 2011 To December 2014. The 2nd Era consisted from really getting used to owning a DSLR from Freshman Days Into Finishing High School and trying to get into photography school (Which hasn’t happened yet). But yeah one of my favorite highlights from the 2nd Era was when I took this night photo of the Manhattan Bridge earlier this fall
One of things I’ve actually enjoyed doing was checking out the No Pants Subway Ride For the first time in 2012 and becoming car leader for it in 2013 and 2014.
2011 was actually the year that made me realized that I wanted to do photography and wanted to get serious into it. I never thought photography would become a passion and always thought I would stick to mostly taking subway pictures but that all changed when I did some city exploring sometime in August 2011. I ended up going to parks (Mainly Central Park) alot more, I took some bus pictures of the M60 and M116 Routes when those routes used a good amount of RTS Buses. Then after being suggested by others many times, I’ve decided to create the Facebook Page (Formerly known as the Daniel Smith Photography Productions) and I started doing work on that page as much as possible)
For my 18th Birthday in 2013, I actually took my first late night train adventure on the (D) which ran local the whole route due to weekend construction

At the same my actual first real website was finally released and created and it has gotten alot of traffic/views which is really impressive. I started to focus alot more on photography at that point up to this day. In June 2014, I finally graduated High School and was able to have time to do more city adventuring and had time to plan for the 3rd Era. Then in November 2014 a huge surprised happened to me which was the Facebook Page Reaching over 1,000 likes which I didn’t expect to happen so soon. And to end it, I finally was able to get my First Full Frame DSLR The Nikon D610. With that said, Good Riddance 2nd Era and on January 1st 2015, We’re going to say hello to the 3rd Era. Wishes Everyone A Happy New Year
So now here’s something I did, Took this photo of the R68A Subway Cars On The B Line At Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue and Made it looked really classic and old. This photo reminds me of how it kinda looks like the old Coney Island Station.. Made me think of the old times. Enjoy

So my next photography/video project is called The Daniel Smith Project. This project basically will be in 4 parts
Part 1 – Interest in The Subway
Part 2 – His Favorite Places
Part 3 – Trying New Things
Part 4 – Undecided
This is a project I honestly wanted to do for a long time but something kept stopping me from doing this project. But now I’m really going to put my effort to this wonderful project so with that said, stay tune for updates.
So I ended up deciding to make a stop at the Highest Train station in the world which is Smith-9th Street in Brooklyn, NY. I tried to get a photo of it at night. I don’t know if its bad or not, or if I failed at taking the photo. But either way here’s the photo
