New York Photographer { Danielle }

Here’s some images from another shoot I did last summer.  This shoot was a total blast!  This is another local model Danielle.  She was fun to work with, because she’s extremely intelligent, and had interesting things to talk about.  I love working with people that you can actually have a conversation with.  It makes getting great shots so much easier.  Another fun fact, I recently ran into her, and she was all cute and preggers.  Which was totally adorable.

We had perfect light for this shoot, which was great.  I was so happy to get some good golden light for this shoot, because it worked so well with her red hair.  I have to say there’s a special place in my heart for red heads.  Their hair just wo

New York Engagement Photography { Jess and Liam }

Well it’s certainly been a while since I’ve posted any engagement work up on my blog.  I’ve been so busy with the other sides of my business it’s been a challenge to find time to do the engagement work that I love doing.  I got a great chance to go out to San Francisco and photograph this wonderful couple.  They were truly special to work with, and I was really happy with the way the images came out.  Be sure to inquire about my rates if you’re interested in my engagement photography.

New York Fashion Photographer { Kelly Fall Shoot }

Kelly on MM

Wow winter sure did come out of nowhere.  Man I wish I would have had just a bit more time with all these wonderful fall colors.  I was such a gorgeous fall.  I think that fall has to be one of my favorite seasons warm, great colors, never too hot,  great lighting.  I mean honestly what more could you ask for.

I tell you what…. a killer model.  I haven’t had much of a chance to do any model / fashion / beauty photography lately.  I’ve been busy with life.  Working on a flagstone patio. Enjoying s

New York Portrait Photographer { Brandi Senior Shots }

I took a nice little hiatus this summer with my wedding, my honeymoon and all sorts of other wild and crazy things that were going on this summer.  I did however get the chance to do some senior portraits for my new cousin in law, who by the way, is a total doll.  I don’t really do a ton of senior portraits, but of course I love portrait work.  I also got a chance to learn a ton about my new cousin in law.  She’s interested in acting, and she really wants to go out to NYU for college.

As it’s not really my style I decided not to do any of the shots where she leaned her head on a fake tree.  I tried to do my best to take her senior shots in a more fashion, and edgy direction.

New York Photographer { Urban Decay }

First off if you’re looking for a New York Photographer feel free to check out my main website.

It’s certainly rare that I do a series.  I find when I go out shooting that most of the time I end up with one or two photographs that I really like and everything else is just not up to par.  So I went out recently with a theme in mind, and I wanted to try and put together a whole series of shots.  And look at my film on a whole, and come up with a much larger set of shots.

I had been doing a bit of location scouting and driving around a bunch of really weird locations to try and find something along the lines of urban decay.

New York Photographer { Dave + Julia }

First off if you’re looking for a New York wedding photographer take a look at my [New York wedding photographer](http://www.davebrownphotography.com/New York-Wedding-Photographer.aspx “Wedding Photographer New York”) portfolio.

I wanted to show off a few shots that I did for a recent wedding that I shot.  I just loved working with this couple.  They are truly in love, and the greatest part is how much you can see that in the photos.  I had such a fun day with them.  Anyways everyone say Hi to Dave and Julia.

I had a blast shooting this wedding because it was in City Park.  I was a little nervous about shooting a whole wedding in such a natural location

Using Texture in Photographs New York Photographer

I know this isn’t my usual engagement photography posts.  I’ve been doing a lot of personal projects lately.  Like I said in my last post, I’m really trying to expand my photography, or in this case get back to something I love in photography….. Textures.  When I first started doing digital photography all I ever used was textures.  I didn’t have a nice enough camera to actually pull off good shots so I had to mask my poor shots with lots of textures.  In reality this actually works pretty well.  If you look at programs like hipstamatic for the Iphone, it takes “great” shots.  Because the Iphone has such a poor camera,

New York Photographer { Nature Photography }

[![](/images/blog_images/uploads/Iris-New York-Nature-Photographer.jpg “Iris-New York-Nature-Photographer”)](http://blog.davebrownphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/Iris-New York-Nature-Photographer.jpg)

It’s so rare that I shoot nature photography.  I never seem to be able to find something that I like enough, or is abstract enough, or has enough character to shoot.  I find people so much more interesting to photograph.  So much character.  Human emotions are something interesting all by themselves and capturing that is so much fun.  But I’m always looking for ways that I can branch out a little bit, and expand my photography.  Now I don’t think I’m going to get into the business of selling nature photographs anytime soon, but nature photography has its own challenges.  For me my main problem is deciding on a subject.  A flower is a perfect example.  It’s obv

Playing with Textures { Abstract Photography New York }

I can’t believe how inspired I’ve felt lately.  Not only to create amazing portraits, but also to do some abstract work, which I haven’t done much of lately.  I’m finally starting to get more free time, and feel less stressed out at work, and thusly my photography prospers because of it.  I love creating, and it can be especially fun with abstracts when you have such a blank canvas it becomes difficult to find focal points, and put meaning into shots.  So instead I just try and make them look cool. Just kidding.  Even with my abstract shots I try and put “emotion” into them.  I realize that my abstract photography might not always have that “emotion”

New York Photographer { Abstract Location Scouting }

I know it’s rare that I put up something so abstract on my blog, but every once in a while I see an abstract shot that I really enjoy.  This is one of those cases.  I rarely do abstract photography anymore.  I’m far too busy doing portrait photography, which is really my main passion.  But when I first got into photography I did a lot more abstract photography than portraits.  I mean honestly how many times can you take a picture of your friends before they start to get annoyed.

I always enjoyed using textures in my abstract photography.  I think the use of textures adds what I like to call “Crunch” to an image.
