Examples of Magical Boston Skyline Photography Art

When I am not hiking or wandering the beautiful state and national parks/sites of the Northeast I keep myself occupied with local cityscape photography in and around Boston. The Boston cityscape provides plenty of photo opportunities for the local or visiting travel photographer. The unique mixture of old and new buildings, its busy streets and sites are pristine photo material and the New England light paints the landmarks beautifully during the morning or evening golden hours.

Creating Flower Fine Art Photography Through Backlighting

Backlighting is achieved when the subject is lit from behind. It is the most spectacular light we can aim for. It works magically in macro Photography where the high contrast makes the photographic subject glow from within. It can be beautifully used with translucent ... LEARN MORE.

New England Covered Bridges

September 26th, 2017

New England Covered Bridges

New England is famous for its covered bridges and they make for excellent photography subjects. Some are easy to photograph while others are more challenging. The easiest are the ones in a scenic, non-obstructive environment setting, the hardest ones are in a more urban, difficult to isolate environment. Especially autumn makes for great New England Covered Bridge photography as the backdrop is often submerged in abundant fall colors. Join me on this virtual road trip and >>> EXPERIENCE MORE

The Making of Boston Dark as Night

The Making of Boston Dark as Night

Boston offers many photo ops for the local and travel photography enthusiast. There are plenty of historic landmarks and architectural marvels around. The skyline can be admired from many spots. One hot spot for Boston Skyline Photography is Memorial Drive in Cambridge, MA. I love this area because it easily allows adjusting on the go. The other night I photographed into the night. While the sky turned dark, the city lights provided an interesting contrast. The icing on the cake was a really calm Charles River that I haven't experienced in quite some time. The windless night and quiet waters made for an excellent skyline reflection. Aperture in this picture was set at f/11, providing an exposure time of 20 seconds at ISO200. During routine post processing I adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before removing imperfections and sharpening the final Boston skyline image of Dark as Night

Bar Harbor Main Street by Night

September 18th, 2017

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

Behind the Macro Photography Image of a Slender Spreadwing Damselfly

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. In seconds with tripod and camera in place I switched from landscape to vertical format, manually focused on the the damselfly head and snagged a few pictures. 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.

During post processing I removed LEARN More

Long Exposure Photography at Maine Acadia National Park

Maine Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is worth a trip for the outdoor adventurer and photographer alike at any time of the year. I went to visit the park in spring and was rewarded with beautiful lighting and less traveled roads throughout Acadia and surrounding towns. I photographed this classic seacoast photography sunset view of the Maine rocky shoreline at Ship Harbor in Acadia NP. The rocky granite seascape with its evergreens lead the viewer into the photograph and towards the beautiful ... >>> READ MORE
