Silky, Dream Like and Moving Water Photography Tips

Silky, Dream Like and Moving Water Photography Tips

Moving water has become one of my favorite objects. These scenes are difficult to photograph but make for beautiful subjects. Sudbury River was one of my first of this kind. I first discovered the scene on a trip to one of my daugther's soccer games. The Fall foliage peak was almost over. When we came around the corner in our car I caught a glimpse of the bridge with the Sudbury river and committed the image to memory ... Read it all .

Macro Photography at the Boston Arnold Arboretum

Macro Photography at the Boston Arnold Arboretum

Originally I was shooting for raindrops on leaves in the Boston Arnold Arboretum but the wind made it impossible to capture a sharp image that day. I then started focusing on the ground where I was looking for a raindrop on a blade of grass with a decent background to use. Not far from where I hoped to find ... Learn More.

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.

Behind the Autumn Photography Image of Stepstone Falls in Rhode Island

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.

Sunset Nature Photography at Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park

August 11th, 2021

Sunset Nature Photography at Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park

Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park is located on Mount Desert Island- south of Somesville and just a short drive north of Southwest Harbor. The fresh water lake is shadowed by the soaring Beech Cliffs that rise vertically from the banks of the lake. Visiting the lake at sunset makes for a peaceful and calm outdoor experience. The views of the lake with the mountains is straight out of a magazine. I stopped here a couple of times but never captured the photography image I envisioned. On my most recent photo tour to Acadia National Park I was on my way to a different location but was running late and about to miss the magic light. I spontaneously decided to stop at this nature delight and take my chances. I knew about the rocks and figured it should make for great composition when effectively used as dominant foreground features that lead the viewer into the picture.

Upon arrival I found my spot and set up tripod and camera. A wide angle lens provided the extensive view of the lake with surrounding mountains. In order to overcome the high contrast between dark foreground and bright sky I applied a Graduated Neutral Density Filter in the field. In addition a Neutral Density Filter lengthened the overall exposure to multiple seconds. Aperture setting was f/8, providing a long exposure value of 30 seconds at ISO400.

Using photoshop I combined 3 photos with different exposure times into a final HDR Photography image. During post processing I removed image imperfections, adjusted lighting, color saturation and contrast before sharpening the final image of Echo Lake.

This classic New England fine art photography picture is available as museum quality photo prints, canvas prints, acrylic prints or metal prints. Fine Art Prints may be framed and matted to the individual liking and decorating needs.

This nature photography picture is also available for photo image licensing through Roth Galleries.

Good light and happy photo making!

Lighting and Making of Spring Orchids

I photographed these orchids from the comfort of my home studio or what we usually refer to as our dining room. The afternoon light beautifully reflected from our neighbors' house and windows through our dining room window. The late afternoon light provided wonderful back lighting but I decided to photograph the orchid flowers in front of ... Learn More.

Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

For this Stage Harbor lighthouse photograph I arrived late at Harding's beach parking lot; the sun was already setting. I immediately was side tracked by a hand full of kite surfers. It was a struggle to freeze the surfers because of their fast speed and my camera's low shutter speed. I adjusted my camera ISO setting to allow for faster shutter speeds and continued shooting. Although there was some waste produced in the end I got the shots of the Nantucket Sound kite surfers hat I was hoping for. Meanwhile the tide was coming in strong and I was a little worried about getting back in the dark after shooting the lighthouse. Nonetheless .... continued in my nature photography blog Where in the World is Juergen?.

Experience Cape Cod Bay Sunset at Day Ends

Experience Cape Cod Bay Sunset at Day Ends

I regularly visit the beaches of Cape Cod Bayfor sunset photography. Cape Cod sunsets never disappoint. No difference on one of my latest trips where I photographed at Skaket Beach. This was a new beach and it took a bit of time and exploring before settling on a pleasing composition. I finally succeeded when I found some nice beach grass leading into the picture. While the sun was nearing the horizon colors in the sky exploded. A saturated blue with clouds colored in pink and orange dominated the sky. The spectacle was beautifully reflected in the Cape Cod Bay and beach. I used a split ND filter to balance the bright sunset sky with the darker foreground directly in front of me. Aperture setting was f/14 providing a shutter speed of � a second at ISO100. During routine post processing I adjusted lighting, contrast, color saturation before removing imperfections and sharpening the final Cape Cod photography image of
