Behind the Macro Photography Image of a Slender Spreadwing Damselfly

Last weekend we spent in Maine with family. Sunday morning I had a chance to explore the family garden which was packed with little critters. While photographing insects a Slender Spreadwing damselfly landed on a nearby flower. It is quite amazing how gracious damselflies look when they hang on to a floral.

The magnifying feature on my camera allowed me to pin point focus. The camera self timer combined with a tripod minimized camera shake and ensured best image quality.

Behind the Photography Image of a Boston Skyline Favorite

A few days ago I visited one of my favorite photo locations for Boston Skyline Photography in East Boston, Massachusetts. I like this location as it provides one of the best views of downtown and the Boston Harbor. I also discovered some wood pilings from an old pier in the waters that make for great foreground features to add interest and depth to a photograph. Effectively used in a composition the pilings also lead a viewer in the and through the frame. That day, I arrived a bit early for twilight photography. There were beautiful last clouds rushing through the picture as the sky was clearing towards the end of the day. Equipped with a neutral density filter I extended exposure times to blur out the fast moving clouds and provide a sense of cloud movement. The longer exposure times also created Silky Water Effects in the harbor waters and around the wood pilings. In order to overcome the contrast between the darker foreground and the brighter sky I utilized a >>> LEARN MORE
