New York City Skyline Photography

February 1st, 2019

New York City Skyline Photography

We spent a couple of nights in New York City the other weekend where I got a chance to photograph a classic view of the lower Manhattan New York City skyline at twilight. The panoramic pic, showing cityscape landmarks such as Freedom Tower (it was the night before it became the tallest building in the Big Apple again), Brooklyn Bridge, East River and FDR Drive, was taken from the Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn, NY. The long wait finally paid off when >>> Learn More.

High Resolution GigaPan Boston Panorama Photography

I often visit Memorial Drive to photograph the Boston Skyline as it provides ample views of the city and its landmarks. It is amazing me when city lights and twilight merge as one and an unforgettable magic unfolds - it never gets old! On my last photo trip I went to a photo location that provides one of the best Boston skyline views with the Prudential Center, John Hancock Tower and the famous Citgo sign in Fenway.

The night was beautiful clear night and the light after sunset was incredible gorgeous. Equipped with a GigaPan technology, Canon D7 and a 70-200mm set at 100mm I captured 35 photographs to be stitched in a Boston skyline panorama gigapixel image when I >>> LEARN MORE

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.

Photography New England at the Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Worcester, MA is only a short 45 minute drive west along the Massachusetts turnpike and I frequently visit the Mass Audubon Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary to pursue macro photography. Worcester is a great town and has many interesting areas to explore. One area is Green Hill Park that can be easily reached via the Skyline Drive. At the end of the road there is a small petting zoo, a pond next to the Green Hill golf course and the Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

The Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a powerful monument providing a place of dignity and quietude in a natural location for reflection, teaching and learning. The memorial is designed in three sections; place of flags, place of words and place of names.

On 19 March 2011 there was another expected and exciting twist: The super moon phenomena was expected in Boston. A super moon is known as a ... Learn More.

Color Emotion for Your Artwork

Color Emotion for Your Artwork

When I am out and about pursuing nature photography I am almost always instinctively attracted by the strong colors of a photographic object. This is the decisive moment for me when I decide it is worthwhile to pull out my camera and tripod to capture a natural delight. I am much more aware of colors and their effect on people then I used to be and I try to use them to my photographic advantage. For example, one connects the color red with energy, danger, strength and power but also with passion, desire and love as often conveyed in red roses. Yellow is the color of sunshine. It's connected with joy, happiness and Read it All.

Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

Another example of beautiful flower photography at your door step. To get this shot I went to one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Hall's Pond Wildlife Sanctuary in Brookline, MA. The wildlife is amazing for a little pond in the middle of the city. Over the years I have captured some precious images there. I go regularly to explore the sanctuary, including its formal garden, where I composed this lily stamen close-up. While strolling the garden I was attracted by the greenish yellowish color of the lily. My goal was to have one of the stamens in focus and keep the others blurry. The lily petals were supposed to provide the background. In order to achieve this effect I set the camera aperture to maximum possible and zoomed all the way out to a 80mm lens setting. This combination provided me with the limited depth of field I was looking for. I snapped a series of photographs for optimal exposure and left only sharpening the image to post processing.
