On a photo tour yesterday. We walked the Highline and took photos of modern architecture and also did some street photography as well. “I would highly recommend any tour with Leanne. She’s great from a photographic perspective and her local knowledge is a real bonus and adds to the experience.” An excerpt of her review.
“New York Experience with Leanne Staples. I recently returned to NYC and did my second photo tour with Leanne. I have been to NYC many times but Leanne has it down when it comes to finding the spots most visitors miss. I have been able to capture images of the city, people and architecture with her guidance that are priceless !! I look forward to my next trip to NYC and my next tour with Leanne.” – Gary, Houston, Texas. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2017/6/4/review-by-gary-houston-texas
Another photo from Sunday afternoon in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I adore photography that ‘breaks the rules.’ Yes, I adore blur. It was a perfect day for it! If you haven’t been to Greenpoint before it is definitely worth exploring. If you are interested in photo tour there all you need to do it request it. It isn’t possible for me to list every tour that I can offer. As well, if you are interested in exploring intentional camera movement or other photographic techniques we can do that as well. Photo tours are for New Yorkers as well. And you can be a group of up to 4 people for no additional charge. You can see some of my suggested tours on my site as well as reviews of my tours and workshops as well. Greenpoint afternoon, 22 April, 2017.
The Guggenheim Museum in New York City is one of the most well known buildings in the city. I have photographed it many times and I’m always looking for new ways to photograph things. To do it differently. I used to think that it was important to capture the whole building. Photography has changed for me over time and I am constantly redefining what works for me. This photo was taken 10 April 2017 during a photo tour.
Another photo that I took recently on a photo tour of Greenwich Village. And I’m in the mood for black and white these days. Sometimes a photo just looks better in b&w. Color, if there’s too much of it, can look a little too busy for me. It distracts the eye from the subject. Other times there might not even be enough color in a photo to want to leave the color in. Photography is purely subjective. It is what appeals to you! If you are looking to do street photography in the city I have a workshop coming up on Sunday 2 April in Chinatown and there are a couple spaces still available.
Love is in the air and on doorways and everywhere in this city! Out shooting today. Spouses are buying registrations for street photography workshops for their loved ones! What a great idea! Very thoughtful spouses! Photos and the experience of a workshop will last longer than a box of chocolates! But chocolate is very cool too!
One of the many things that I like to photograph are construction windows. There’s construction going on everywhere in New York City. And when we’re out on a photo tour, it’s one of the many things that I point as possible photo that you might want to capture. I like how there’s already a natural frame there! So many things to photograph when you stop and look around. Composition, photo techniques and things of interest in general are also part of my workshops. There are many reviews on my website by previous attendees as well. If you still have questions you can contact me through my site as well.
