New York City wasn’t built in a day. Every different neighborhood has its own character. The city has so much beautiful architecture in many different styles as a result. This photo was taken in the East Village and is a cast iron architecture building like the 200 or so in Soho. My photo tours concentrate on architecture if that’s what you’re looking to capture, just inquire.
I took about 50,000 photos in 2018! I am still posting photos from last year and I’m working on getting caught up before I start posting photos from this new year! This photo is from a photo tour in Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.
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.
