Behind The Image of a Newly Discovered Boston Skyline Photography Location

June 5th, 2015

Behind The Image of a Newly Discovered Boston Skyline Photography Location

On the way home from my last photo tour to Rockport, MA I discovered a new location for Boston skyline photography. While driving home I noticed a spot that may have potential and I instantly decided to get off the highway at the next exit and to explore this photo opportunity. Upon arrival at the potential area I got out of the car, walked around and looked for any open views through tree line that would allow to photograph some of Bostonís iconic landmarks. So glad I made that decision and scouted the area as the view was somewhat unique as it shows the Tobin Bridge with the Zakim Bridge, John Hancock Tower and Prudential Center. I have not come across a Boston photo like this and continued and was pumped to make my way back as soon as possible. That evening I went back to explore the twilight angle of the vista. I composed the photo image so that the highway and Tobin Bridge lead into the City of Boston. My 70-200mm zoom lens with a 1.4 telezoom converter allowed to comfortably zooming in for a more >>> LEARN MORE

The Dark Side of Boston

June 3rd, 2015

The Dark Side of Boston

Capturing the Boston Skyline at various times of the day has become a top priority for me. I love the quietude of a early morning shoot when I have the city almost for myself. Late afternoon into twilight provide beautiful lighting and one can feel the energy of Boston and its people coming alive. Once the twilight has passed there is no need to pack up our gear. The nightlight provides the photographer with fabulous photo opportunities as well. I like how the dark sky makes the city lights and neon signs pop in front of it. Headlights and rear lights of moving cars commuting into Boston turn into white and red stripes respectively. Effectively used those lines make for great compositional elements that lead a viewer into and through a photography image. A solid tripod, manual focus, low ISO settings and utilizing camera self timer or a remote release device are essential for successful night photography of skylines. I discovered this new location a few weeks back and made a couple of trips there. It is amazing how Route 1 and the Tobin Bridge with its constant traffic lead into the city. The view also allows to capture iconic Landmarks of Boston such as the Bunker Hill Bridge, Prudential Center and the TD Bank North Garden.

Aperture in this photo was set to f/11 and at ISO 200 provided an >>> LEARN MORE

Bar Harbor Main Street by Night

May 30th, 2015

Bar Harbor Main Street by Night

The week before Memorial Day we went to visit Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park in Maine. It is a good 5 hour drive north from Boston but no doubt worth the trip any time we make it. Mount Desert Island and the park always stand for good times, beautiful nature photography but also great outdoor adventures that includes hiking, biking, canoeing and more. We enjoyed hiking around Jordan Pond and The South Bubble, having afternoon tea and the famous popovers at the Jordan Pond House and browsing the streets of Bar Harbor where businesses were buzzing and most of the restaurants, galleries and shops were open for business. As Memorial Day weekend passed the crowds disappeared and we had to share the great outdoors with only a few. It will only get busier from here when the summer crowds arrive and cruise ships with plenty of passengers stop for a day. The night before full moon when I was just driving back from a foggy photo shoot along the Park Loop road of Acadia National Park I realized the opportunity for a shot that I had on my bucket list for many years. The sky suddenly opened up for a few minutes in the evening, while twilight was fast approaching. Instead of turning right to our motel I made a quick left turn down Main Street towards the harbor. I immediately found a parking spot at the harbor parking area which made it very convenient. Only a few steps away I set up tripod and camera gear. I choose the Canon 28-70mm lens and composed a picturesque New England town picture of Main Street and its buzzing nightlife. I made it a priority to include the lit up moose on top of one of the restaurants. Switching to manual focus allowed me to >>> LEARN MORE

Bigger, better, greater Boston Photography Art

Earlier this week I made my way out to one of the most popular Boston Skyline Photography locations. I regularly visit this site to shoot the beautiful architecture of Boston as it rises along the harbor. I love being here when the City Night Lights merge with the twilight shortly after sunset and become one. This time I decided to capture the cityscape in a stunning sunrise panoramic. I arrived on time at dusk to set up and do some test shots prior to getting serious. Equipping my Canon camera with a >>> LEARN MORE!

How to Care for Photo Acrylic Prints

How to Care for Photo Acrylic Prints

In my first 2 blog posts of this series we discussed how to protect and clean Aluminum Metal Prints and Canvas Prints. This week we will be discussing how to care for acrylic prints. Acrylic printing has a lustrous glossy finish showing off a depth and clarity to photo art that is incomparable. It takes the fine art of photography to an entire new level of modern art. Contemporary look, great color vibrancy with a near 3-D effect makes them an popular Interior Decorating Solution for public areas in hotel, sports bar, restaurant, lobby, and studio settings. Photo acrylic prints are also great for hanging in home or office and truly make for spectacular personal gifts. With proper care, acrylic prints will last for years, so you can fully enjoy and appreciate the artwork for many years to come:

1. Clean your acrylic print using a soft slightly water damp lint free cloth. Alternatively use high quality acrylic cleaners or an acrylic glass cleaner to maintain that glazing looking its best.

2. Avoid wiping the acrylic surface too hard as you may scratch the it. Consider scratch resistant acrylic when buying acrylic prints.

Photography Story and Technique Behind the Image of Boston Night

Photography Story and Technique Behind the Image of Boston Night

Opposite of Boston downtown and its financial district across the Boston Harbor is East Boston. East Boston provides tremendous Boston Skyline Views from where one can admire the skyline and the many boats crossing the Boston harbor. Using water reflections in a composition to lead a viewer into and through a picture is a very effective compositional element. In this latest night photography image I used this feature to guide the viewer into the Boston cityscape and towards its historic architecture landmark of the Custom House of Boston. Clear blue sky made for a picture perfect photography night out with a beautiful skyline reflection.

Aperture in this image was f/14 with an exposure time of 30 seconds at ISO100. During my routine image processing steps in Photoshop I removed dust spots, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final Boston Night photography image.
