Behind the Autumn Photography Image of Stepstone Falls in Rhode Island

Inspired by my recent photography tour to the New Hampshire White Mountains a couple weeks back, I traveled to southern New England capturing the fall foliage colors in Rhode Island and Connecticut this past week. Fall colors were gorgeous and my first travel destination brought me to Stepstone Falls. It was a bit hard to find and driving down a winding dirt road I finally arrived at my desired destination. The flow of water was quite disappointing but I tried to make the best of it and worked with the small cascades and waterfalls at hand. The set of small falls must be pristine after heavy rain or in the ... LEARN MORE.

Good light and happy photo making!

I love the rain

August 4th, 2020

I love the rain

Yesterday it was raining on and off in Boston but nevertheless I made my way over to the Boston Arnold Arboretum for a macro photography shoot. I envisioned the leaves covered in raindrops and knew the overcast sky makes for good close-up photography. My goal was to find some extraordinary raindrops on leaves that I could beautifully frame in a photograph. Last year I found a special area of shrubs in full orange and red fall foliage covered in raindrops. Unfortunately not that lucky this year! Instead I had to ... Learn More.

18 Examples of Beautiful Butterfly Photography

When I am not hiking or wandering the beautiful state and national parks/sites of the Northeast I keep myself occupied with local macro or butterfly photography in and around Boston. A prime destination during the summer for photographing macro images of insects in their natural habitat is the Mass Audubon Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in Worcester, MA. During the long winters of New England I make the 2 hour drive out from Boston to Magic Wings in South Dartmouth. Magic Wings is a beautiful butterfly garden that provides the nature photographer with unlimited photo opportunities and a fun outing for a day.

15 Photo Tips for Splendid Autumn Foilage Photography

New England autumn colors are famous throughout the world. Visitors flog to the Northeast from all over the world to experience the marvelous autumn glory in the Acadia National and State Parks of Maine, Rode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont. New York State to the west and the Great Smokey Mountains further down east are 2 more prime destination for fall foliage peeping and photography. In this latest photography blog post I compiled 15 photo tips on how to obtain glorious fall foliage photos with our photography gear and take home beautiful artwork memories. This blog post links to other related topics that deepen the understanding of correct exposure, depth of field or how to use your tripod correctly ... hope you explore and enjoy!

Photo Tip #1: Plan your New England fall foliage leaf peeping or photography trips well in advance this year and at peak times. There are many sites that provide the required information. The Foliage Network is one of the best and this website provides accurate foliage reports for color and leaf drop. "High Color" is the best time to find these glorious New England fall colors.

Photo Tip #2: Use a Polarizing Filter to boost color and balance the contrast in your photography image. The filter eliminates unwanted and distracting glare and reflections on wet leaves and one can think of it as sunglasses for your camera. Overall, these filters increase color saturation, boost blue sky, add cloud contrast, control reflections and add neutral density to lengthen exposure times for blurred, impressionistic images.

Photo Tip #3: Utilize lowest possible ISO settings like ISO 100 and below for higher quality pictures. Do not use your camera ... Learn More.

Twilight Poetry

Twilight Poetry

What an incredible treasure of poetry by Irish and Dublin born novelist and poet James Joyce ~ hope you like it too!

The Twilight Turns

"The twilight turns from amethyst
To deep and deeper blue,
The lamp fills with a pale green glow
The trees of the avenue.
The old piano plays an air,
Sedate and slow and gay;
She bends upon the yellow keys,
Her head inclines this way.
Shy thought and grave wide eyes and hands
That wander as they list -- -
The twilight turns to darker blue
With lights of amethyst.�

By James Joyce

Fog Photography Image Tips

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 1/2 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 and keep the gear dry; those droplets do not make for a better photograph.
