East Village Go Go - I was out on a photo tour yesterday and I have a few shots that I like! Still making my way through them. We spent time in Greenwich Village, Soho and the East Village walking the streets and taking photos of buildings and puddle reflections as well as street photography and intentional camera movement. It was great fun! You can see information about that tour and others on my site. And you will also find reviews there about my tours and workshops.

Review by Annie - "Shoot in Little Odessa. It is an excellent experience to shoot the neighbor- Brighton Beach with Leanne Staples. I did not know such a place before, thanks to Leanne for taking us to such a wonderful neighbor. It is a great place for street shooting, people here are stylish and the view here are awesome. Leanne helped us to find many great spots to shoot. And I learned much from her about the street photography rules." - Annie, New York City. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2017/3/22/review-by-annie-new-york-city

On photo tour today! Today I had a photo tour in Greenwich Village, Soho and the East Village. The weather was fabulous and it was partly sunny. So we had great shadows to work with. And we had a great time! The difference between a photo tour and a workshop is that a tour is private, one-on-one and we choose the date and place and what you want to do photographically. My workshops are prescheduled and people register online for them. A workshop is a maximum of 6 people and while the subject is somewhat fixed for a workshop I am flexible to the needs of the attendees. This photo was taken today, 21 March 2017 in the East Village, New York City. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/blog/2017/3/21/on-photo-tour-today

Next Sunday the Bushwick Workshop - Bushwick is a fabulous neighborhood if you are interested in amazing street art and also exploring an area of New York City beyond Manhattan. A neighborhood that has a very different look and feel than Manhattan. There are at least 100 walls of incredible street art. These walls are curated just like museums and the street art is from street artists from around the world. On the Bushwick Street Art and Creative Photography Workshop we explore the neighborhood and document and we also use a number of creative photography techniques to produce more painterly photos as well. On occasion we are able to get some street photography as well. But this neighborhood has fewer people. This photo was taken on 26 February 2017 during a previous Bushwick workshop. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/blog/2017/3/21/next-sunday-the-bushwick-workshop

Portrait of a Photographer - I have the great good fortune to meet some really cool people from around the world on my photo tours and workshops. We get to know each other as well as explore this crazy city and shoot photos while discussing cameras and techniques and composition and I always point out the numerous things that I find amazing. If I'm doing a good job, I'm providing confidence, enthusiasm and maybe even inspiration. I think that photography should always be about fun and we typically do enjoy the time we spend together. You can see what other people say on the reviews section of my site. This photo was taken during a street photography workshop in Chinatown March 2017. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/blog/2017/3/18/portrait-of-a-photographer

Lower East Side Story - Here's a photo from the lower East Side. New Yorkers call it LES. A very cool neighborhood. Many independent businesses and some good street art. Once upon a time most New Yorkers wouldn't go anywhere near it. It is a common location for my photo tours for street photography and urban landscapes. I quite like the red brick wall, window and the man walking out of the frame. New Yorkers are usually in a hurry to get somewhere. This photo was taken in October 2016 on a photo tour. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/blog/2017/3/18/lower-east-side-story

Recently, someone asked me about throwing away digital photos. It's funny because I shot film for many years and I never thought about throwing away negatives. And perhaps shooting digital I shoot a bit more than I did with film. I don't often trash large quantities of photos from a day of shooting. Perhaps that's the nature of digital.

For me, photography is a series of processes. They all require a slightly different mindset. In the last 3 days I have been going through my photo library and deleting photos. So far I've deleted 2,500+ photos for about 30 days of shooting over a little more than 3 months. While cleaning out I am discovering photos that I forgot about as well! The process of cleaning up afterward is not always easy to get done! Spring cleaning! https://www.leannestaples.com/blog/2017/3/17/spring-cleaning
