Sunset Nature Photography at Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park

July 4th, 2016

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!

2016 Boston University Commencement Gigapan Photography Image

In May 2016 I photographed myself and nearly 30,000 Boston University students, faculty, friends and family members at Nickerson Field during the 2016 BU Commencement. Commencement speaker Nina Tassler delivered an inspiring and engaging commencement speech.

The Gigapan system allows taking hundreds or thousands of photos that are stitched into a high-resolution image in post processing. The Gigapan is ideal to capture crowds at events such as commencements, graduations or sport games. The final result is an amazingly detailed image that is fun to explore and interactive to have the viewer glued to the screen.

Creating Flower Fine Art Photography Through Backlighting

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.

Behind the Autumn Photography Image of Stepstone Falls in Rhode Island

Inspired by my recent photo trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire 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.

It travels from the bottom of Canal Street at the Mississippi River, passing Bourbon Street and traveling all the way up to the New Orleans Museum of Art at City Park. This Travel Photography image shows the famous red streetcar on Canal Street.

Behind the Nature Photography Image of The Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch State Park

October 28th, 2015

Behind the Nature Photography Image of The Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch State Park

The Flume in Franconia Notch State Park is a natural gorge in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The beautiful cascading Flume Brok, a mountain stream, flows through this narrow canyon. The Flume Gorge is at the base of Mt. Liberty and about 800 feet long. The covered Conway granite walls rise up to 90 feet and are covered in moss, flowers and ferns. Positioned at the bottom of the gorge I equipped my camera with a wide angle lens to capture this magical place in its complete glory. A polarizing filter eliminated unwanted glare on the flora and granite walls. Combined with the low light a Long Exposure Photography image was easily achievable, thereby creating silky waters streams of the tumbling Flume Brook waters.

During digital post processing I cleaned up the image from dust spots, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final New Hampshire photo image of Flume Gorge.

Good light and happy photo making!

Behind the Photo of the Long Exposure Photography Picture at New Hampshire Table Rock

Behind the Photo of the Long Exposure Photography Picture at New Hampshire Table Rock

On my last trip to the New Hampshire White Mountains I explored Franconia Notch State Park. Flume Brook was nicely filled with water due to a few rain events the days before my arrival. Peak autumn colors during New England fall foliage were imminent made for a spectacular photo tour to the Whites. This image here shows Table Rock, a small section of Conway granite that has been exposed and outcropped for hundreds of years. This scenic cascading water section is about 500 feet long and 75 feet wide and has plenty of photo opportunities.

Positioned in the mid section of Table Rock I found an outcrop that beautifully displayed the cascading waters of Flume Brook. I incorporated the glorious fall foliage in the back to provide the essence of this magical place. A Polarizing Filter extended exposure times while also eliminating unwanted glare on leaves and wet surfaces. Aperture in this nature photography image was set to f/22 providing a 1 second shutter speed at ISO100. I under exposed slightly to further >>> LEARN MORE.

Behind the Boston Phootgraphy Image - 75 State Street, One International Place and Zakim Bridge

Behind the Boston Phootgraphy Image - 75 State Street, One International Place and Zakim Bridge

I always get super pumped when I discover a new Boston Skyline location. This one was on my bucket list for many years. The evening light on my visit was beautiful and a clear blue sky was predominant. Parking was surprisingly easy and the best photo location to capture my vision of the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, the Custom House of Boston, One International Place and parts of the TD Bank North Garden in one image was only steps away. I set up tripod and equipped my camera with a Canon 70-200mm and 1.4x tele converter, making it an approximately 420 telezoom lens. Landscape versus Portrait format is one of the first decisions that a photographer must make after finding a suitable location and subject. In this case I both formats worked and I ended up shooting both that night. Once I adjusted my zoom lens to my final composition I battled another challenge; trucks and cars driving past close and ... LEARN MORE.
