Photos of the Day: Soulja Boy and Keri Hilson in Concert

Yesterday I was selected as the photographer for the launch of five new products in Monster’s Beats by Dre line, a series of high-end headphones (and now a high-end iPod dock) partnered with hip-hop legend Dr. Dre and a series of other celebrities, from LeBron James to Justin Bieber. (I love photos that look totally […]

Photo of the Day: The Color of Night

Camera: Nikon D3s Lens: Nikon 45mm f/2.8 PC-E There are so many reasons to love the high-ISO capabilities of modern DSLRs, but more than anything I love that, with the right lenses and careful technique, we can actually take portraits and casual photos at night, that really shows wsa night looks like. Night is not […]

What Ryan Brenizer Loves: Junebug

I am very happy to be added to Junebug’s exclusive list of best photographers in the NYC area. They limit each metropolitan area to a select number of photographers and it’s quite an honor to be selected in New York because, well, we have the most people, and so many talented people flock to what […]

Photo of the Day: Through the Trees

Camera: Nikon D3s Lens: 70-200mm VRII Tree branches made a great texture for this shot of Svetlana and Dmitri (whose wedding is tomorrow!) but I was a bit nervous about police seeing me poke my lens through the trees at a couple making out at the park. Luckily, no arrests were made. BACK TO TOP […]

Photo of the Day: Our Own Railroad Car

Camera: Nikon D3s Lens: 24mm f/1.4 Lighting: Three SB-900s Once upon a time the line followed the river and peeked into all the backyards and the laundry was waving the graffiti was teasing us from brick walls and bridges we were rolling over ridges through valleys under stars I dream of touring like Duke Ellington […]

Greetings, Photoshop and Lightroom followers, on the “Brenizer method”

The official Facebook and Twitter pages for Lightroom and Photoshop, with more than a million followers between them, are discussing the “Brenizer method” of stitching for depth-of-field purposes today. The actual links are a bit twisted around, and it might be hard for people to find their way to my content, but still, there might […]

Photo of the Day: Their Own World

30 images with the new 85mm f/1.4G. One of the nice things about the Brenizer method is that the massive resolution compresses away noise when printing or displaying. This was ISO 10,000, which normally pushes it a little even for the D3s. EXIF and GPS BACK TO TOP | CONTACT ME

Wedding: Shakun and Tim at the Thatched Cottage

Watch the full slideshow in high-definition (or click “continue reading” below for a smaller size) I knew I was in the right neighborhood when I started being neighbors with clients as awesome as Shakun. She is a pop culture maven. I ran into her at a coffeeshop last week, and she texted me “Don’t look […]

Review: 85mm f/1.4G

All images in this post were shot at f/1.4, except for the first-dance, where I stopped all the way down to f/1.6. The new lens is stellar at f/8, but so are a lot of cheaper and more versatile lenses. I picked up Nikon’s brand-new 85mm f/1.4G just in time for a wedding at the […]

Watch the full slideshow in high-definition (or click “continue reading” below for a smaller size) And the weather geeks shall inherit the Earth. Let’s back up a bit. For those of you who weren’t in NYC in June and especially July, it was a miserable swamp of high humidity and 95+ degree temperature. I spent […]
