In this blog post I compiled 15 spring flower photo tips that should inspire and help you capturing these precious spring and floral moments around your house, garden, parks and arboretums. >>> Learn More.

Fog Photography Image Tips

March 8th, 2017

Fog Photography Image Tips

Photo Tips for better photography picture in foggy and misty conditions:

Photo Tip #1: The camera meter is easily tricked by fog. Metering without compensation will underexpose the fog photography picture. Therefore we have to adjust the exposure. A good ballpark number is +1 stop and exposure bracket at or 1/3 stops.

Photo Tip #2: The autofocus system of your camera has a hard time finding a focus point in foggy conditions. Switch to manual focus instead and use the magnifying feature, properly adjusting the focus and pinpoint it on the spot.

Photo Tip #3: Incorporating foreground features in our compositions will make for better and more interesting photography images. Ensure your elements in front of your lens are in focus; those elements will become your main subjects while the rest of the composition disappears into the foggy scenery.

Photo Tip #4: Avoid camera shake by using a tripod. One also might increase the ISO setting to increase shutter speeds for a better chance of a quality image when hand-holding the camera.

Photo Tip #5: Routinely check your lens for water droplets or condensation keep the gear dry; those droplets do not make for a better photograph.

Boston in Fall

March 6th, 2017

Boston in Fall

Boston is a great destination for tourists and photographers alike. The largest city north of New York City on the East coast of the United States of America offers so many sites to explore and there is really no best time to visit. New England is famous for its abundant fall foliage season and autumn with its vibrant colors is one of my most favorite times of the year. I look forward to it year-round and it is way to short. Autumn in Boston is particular special as the historic sites and city skyline is submerged into a carpet of colorful and plentiful colors of fall. Hope you had the chance to experience fall foliage in Boston and New England at some point or you have plans to do so! Join me on this virtual road trip and >>> EXPERIENCE MORE

Boston Nightlight - Latest Boston Skyline Photography from the Hub

Boston Nightlight - Latest Boston Skyline Photography from the Hub

Boston Nightlight was taken from a new location that I recently scouted while driving home from a fun trip to Hunts Photo & Video in Melrose, MA.

It is always very exiting to explore a new spot that shows Boston from a different angle and in a new light. I haven't seen this view of the Hub online yet but I am sure other photographers have discovered it as well. Equipped with my longest Canon prime lens and a 1.4x telezoom extender I made my way over. The lens was just right and framed this Boston skyline view perfectly. Upon arrival I set up and patiently waited for the magic of twilight to appear. It still amazes me when the short moment of perfect balance between>>> READ MORE

An American National Park Icon - Jordan Pond and the Bubbles

An American National Park Icon - Jordan Pond and the Bubbles

Last September I spent a week on Mount Desert Island. I used the opportunity to photograph in some of my favorite spots in Acadia National Park. Jordan Pond is famous for its beautiful views of the Bubbles. The Bubbles consist of the South and the North Bubble, a couple of scenic mountains that make for great photography subjects. Parking is pretty easy since the famous Jordan Tea House is nearby providing plenty of spaces at night. This is popular photography spot and I wasn't on my own. I recall three other photographers and we chatted it up a little bit while waiting for sunset and the magic light to appear. Equipped with a wide-angle zoom lens set at 28 mm and my split graduated >>> READ MORE

High Resolution GigaPan Boston Panorama Photography

I often visit Memorial Drive to photograph the Boston Skyline as it provides ample views of the city and its landmarks. It is amazing me when city lights and twilight merge as one and an unforgettable magic unfolds - it never gets old! On my last photo trip I went to a photo location that provides one of the best Boston skyline views with the Prudential Center, John Hancock Tower and the famous Citgo sign in Fenway.

The night was beautiful clear night and the light after sunset was incredible gorgeous. Equipped with a GigaPan technology, Canon D7 and a 70-200mm set at 100mm I captured 35 photographs to be stitched in a Boston skyline panorama gigapixel image when I >>> LEARN MORE

Experience Cape Cod Bay Sunset at Day Ends

November 29th, 2016

I regularly visit the beaches of Cape Cod Bayfor sunset photography. Cape Cod sunsets never disappoint. No difference on one of my latest trips where I photographed at Skaket Beach. This was a new beach and it took a bit of time and exploring before settling on a pleasing composition. I finally succeeded when I found some nice beach grass leading into the picture. While the sun was nearing the horizon colors in the sky exploded. A saturated blue with clouds colored in pink and orange dominated the sky. The spectacle was beautifully reflected in the Cape Cod Bay and beach. I used a split ND filter to balance the bright sunset sky with the darker foreground directly in front of me. Aperture setting was f/14 providing a shutter speed of a second at ISO100. During routine post processing I adjusted lighting, contrast, color saturation before removing imperfections and sharpening the final Cape Cod photography image of
