Photography New England at the Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial

August 23rd, 2020

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.

New England Covered Bridges

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

Boston in Fall

Boston in Fall

Boston is a great destination for tourists and photographers alike. The largest city north of New York City on the East coast of the United States of America offers so many sites to explore and there is really no best time to visit. New England is famous for its abundant fall foliage season and autumn with its vibrant colors is one of my most favorite times of the year. I look forward to it year-round and it is way to short. Autumn in Boston is particular special as the historic sites and city skyline is submerged into a carpet of colorful and plentiful colors of fall. Hope you had the chance to experience fall foliage in Boston and New England at some point or you have plans to do so! Join me on this virtual road trip and >>> MORE BOSTON FALL PHOTOS

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.

New England autumn colors are famous throughout the world.

New York State to the west and the Great Smokey Mountains further down east are 2 more fabulous destination for fall foliage leaf peeping and autumn photography. This blog post compiles 11 photo tips for better fall foliage photography results. The photo hints discuss how to capture mood and color of this spectacular season and bring home beautiful photography impressions and memories. The pictures and links provide further tutorials that may be of interest ... hope you explore and enjoy!

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

Photo Tip #2: Get out after a rain storm has passed to take advantage of beautiful lighting conditions when the sunlight breaks through and provides spectacular lighting condition. The air is clearest in the morning and after rain storms making for good times to strive for stunning and scenic autumn landscape photography compositions.

Photo Tip #3: Do not be fooled and discouraged by an overcast and rainy day weather forecast. Cloudy days provides beautiful and well balanced light that enhances details in darker areas. Rain drops on leaves make for excellent macro photography images and wet leaves turn the leaves on fire. Eliminate overcast sky by using your telephoto lens to achieve a tighter, more Intimate Landscape composition that is more beneficial and interesting.

Behind The Image of a Newly Discovered Boston Skyline Photography Location

Behind The Image of a Newly Discovered Boston Skyline Photography Location

On the way home from my last photo tour to Rockport, Massachusetts 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 Boston most 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

Bar Harbor Main Street by Night

August 14th, 2020

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

Photos of Tall Ships at Sail Boston

Boston Harbor makes for great photography during sunrise and sunset and offers many interesting subjects. Sail Boston and its arrival of 50 plus tall ships from around the world made it exceptional. My schedule allowed to head out one night and I played it save by exploring Fan Pier and the Boston waterfron for photo options. The Sail Boston even and tall ships did not disappoint - it was amazing to see them and photograph the boats. Explore my Boston Gallery and Massachusetts Gallery to see more photos of Sail Boston.
