You Shine Like A Star - Nauset Light Night Photography

September 2nd, 2016

You Shine Like A Star - Nauset Light Night Photography

Nauset Light in Eastham, MA on Cape Cod is one of New England's most iconic lighthouses. The red and white structure stands tall atop Nauset Beach and the Cape Cod National Seashore. It is well known as the logo for Cape Cod Potato Chips and also goes by Nauset Beach Light. The famous lighthouse makes for a great photography subjects at any time of the day. I recently ventured out to capture the lighthouse at night under a sky full of stars.

At daylight the parking lot is filled with beach lovers and parking is a hassle; arriving at sunrise, sunset or night makes it a no-hassle activity and free. It's a short walk across the street and you can get to work right away.

That night mostly clear sky was dominant, perfect for star and night photography of Nauset Light. I quickly set up tripod and camera gear and got to work. I used my Canon 7D with a 10-22mm lens set at f/3.5. The shutter speed was 20 seconds at ISO1600. During post -processing of the lighthouse photo I minimized noise, adjusted white balance, lighting, color saturation and contrast. Before sharpening the final image I removed dust spots, imperfection and further minimized digital noise.

Good light and happy photo making!

Cape Ann Harmony - Seascape Fine Art Photography from North of Boston

August 30th, 2016

Cape Ann Harmony - Seascape Fine Art Photography from North of Boston

In recent weeks I have been exploring and chasing the light on Cape Ann, located just a short drive north of Boston. Singing Beach is one of my favorite beaches in New England as it hidden by a scenic cliff.

Early morning is a great time to be at this location and make the best of a sunrise adventure. Beach crowds haven't arrived yet and the lighting is beautiful during dawn. This seascape photography image was taken only minutes before the sun peaked above the horizon. The sky was beautifully painted in orange and blue hues while the Atlantic Ocean surf gently greeted the sand.

I set up tripod and gear near the incoming ocean waters while studying any obviously patterns and getting wet feet. Once I composed a pleasing composition of the sea view I waited for the right wave to hit the beach.

Aperture was set to f/11 allowing an exposure time of 1/20 of a second at ISO100. A split ND filter balanced the light in the darker foreground against the brighter and colorful sky. During post processing I removed dust spots and other imperfections, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final image of Cape Ann Harmony.

Good light and happy photo making!

Charles River Sailing Boats and Boston Millennium Tower

August 14th, 2016

Charles River Sailing Boats and Boston Millennium Tower

The Boston Charles River is famous for its stunning views of Beacon Hill and the Back Bay skyline. Many local and travel photographers are drawn to this hot spot in Cambridge. I am no different and I stop by Memorial Drive regularly, chasing the light for my next Pictures of Boston galleries addition. During my last Boston photo tour I arrived well before sunset and people in sailboats, kayaks, small motor boats and on paddle boats were still enjoying a beautiful summer day on the waters.

I set up on memorial Drive, not far from the Massachusetts Avenue bridge, for stunning views of the familiar Boston architecture and the new Millennium Tower at downtown crossing. Known as Millie, the building is a newcomer in the Boston cityscape and is the third Tallest Skyscraper in Boston. I incorporated sailboats and the skyline reflections as foreground features while the main subject of the Boston skyline was struck by the last light of the day, painting the city in warm hues. Aperture was set to f/11 resulting in an exposure time of 1/50 of a second at ISO200. A hand-held split neutral density filter balanced the darker Charles River scenery and skyline against the brighter sunset sky.

During post processing I followed my my routine workflow removing dust spots and imperfections, adjusting lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final Boston Charles River skyline photography image Charles River Sailboats with Boston Millennium Tower.

What is the tallest Building in Boston?

August 7th, 2016

What is the tallest Building in Boston?

1. John Hancock Tower
The John Hancock Tower is the tallest skyscraper in Boston at 790 feet and 60 floors. The tower was recently renamed to 200 Clarendon. It is also known as the Plywood Palace or John Hancock Building. This jewel of modern architecture is best photographed from Memorial Drive or the parking garage at the Museum of Science. In both locations one can create beautiful reflections of the tower in the Charles River. I like to capture the tallest building with the second tallest skyscraper in Boston.

2. Boston Prudential Center
The Pru is the second largest building in Boston at 750 feet tall and 52 floors. I really like the facades of this 1968 constructed building and how it towers over Back Bay. As 200 Clarendon, the Boston Prudential Center is best photographed from the Cambridge side of the Charles River and the parking garage of the Museum of Science.

3. The Millennium Tower
The Millennium Tower in Boston was recently constructed at downtown crossing and reaches 690 feet into the sky across 60 floors. This modern skyscraper is also know now as Millie and it blends beautifully in the existing Boston skyline. I am still exploring the best locations to photograph this new architectural gem but Memorial Drive is definitely on that list.

Boston fine art photography pictures are available as museum quality photo prints, canvas prints, acrylic prints or metal prints. Fine Art Prints may be framed and matted to the individual liking and decorating needs.

Photos of Boston are also available for photo image licensing through Roth Galleries.

Sunset Nature Photography at Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park

July 4th, 2016

Sunset Nature Photography at Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park

Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park is located on Mount Desert Island- south of Somesville and just a short drive north of Southwest Harbor. The fresh water lake is shadowed by the soaring Beech Cliffs that rise vertically from the banks of the lake. Visiting the lake at sunset makes for a peaceful and calm outdoor experience. The views of the lake with the mountains is straight out of a magazine. I stopped here a couple of times but never captured the photography image I envisioned. On my most recent photo tour to Acadia National Park I was on my way to a different location but was running late and about to miss the magic light. I spontaneously decided to stop at this nature delight and take my chances. I knew about the rocks and figured it should make for great composition when effectively used as dominant foreground features that lead the viewer into the picture.

Upon arrival I found my spot and set up tripod and camera. A wide angle lens provided the extensive view of the lake with surrounding mountains. In order to overcome the high contrast between dark foreground and bright sky I applied a Graduated Neutral Density Filter in the field. In addition a Neutral Density Filter lengthened the overall exposure to multiple seconds. Aperture setting was f/8, providing a long exposure value of 30 seconds at ISO400.

Using photoshop I combined 3 photos with different exposure times into a final HDR Photography image. During post processing I removed image imperfections, adjusted lighting, color saturation and contrast before sharpening the final image of Echo Lake.

This classic New England fine art photography picture is available as museum quality photo prints, canvas prints, acrylic prints or metal prints. Fine Art Prints may be framed and matted to the individual liking and decorating needs.

This nature photography picture is also available for photo image licensing through Roth Galleries.
