Boston Skyline at Twilight

July 10th, 2017

Boston Skyline at Twilight

Post sunset is one of my favorite times to take photographs. I regularly go out and capture the Boston skyline at twilight on days that I am not occupied hunting for nature photographs. The best time is 20 to 30 minutes after the sun has set. The optimum light does not last long. Because twilight is hard to predict I set up my tripod and camera prior to the actual sunset and then fire away once the sun sets and disappears. This approach requires ... Read it All.

Behind the Photography Image Talk of Cape Cod Mayflower Beach

I spent a couple of nights in Dennis on Cape Cod last week and was able to shoot during sunset on Mayflower Beach. There were a couple of photographers in their beach chairs patiently waiting for the light. When I passed by we chatted it up and we agreed that it wouldn't be much of a sunset tonight because the sun was about to disappear behind the clouds. Minutes after sunset twilight kicked in and I walked out into the Cape Cod Bay to a large boulder I spotted. The rock turned out to be a nice anchor for the viewer and an interesting ... LEARN MORE.

Iconic Panorama Photography Picture of the New York Brooklyn Bridge

July 6th, 2017

Iconic Panorama Photography Picture of the New York Brooklyn Bridge

The Empire Fulton Ferry State Park right next to Brooklyn Bridge Park is a great photo location to photograph the New York skyline and take a panorama photography image of the Brooklyn Bridge. This image of this iconic New York landmark is comprised of 7 individual photographs taking in the wee hours and than stitched in photoshop to one large photography picture of the Brooklyn Bridge and New York City skyline. The clouds added some additional interest and the long exposure times created the silky water effects in the East River.

Good light and happy photo making!

Behind the Image Talk of Sunrise Photography Hello Boston

Memorial Drive is a great Boston sunrise photography spot. I often head over to the Cambridge site of the Charles River to capture the Back Bay skyline at twilight when its famous landmarks are illuminated by the night light. However, in the wee hours of the day, Boston looks different. The morning show started minutes before sunrise when the sky turned deep orange and continued after the sun hit the horizon. I equipped my camera with ... 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.

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.

Charles River Sailing Boats and Boston Millennium Tower

June 22nd, 2017

Charles River Sailing Boats and Boston Millennium Tower

The Boston Charles River is famous for its stunning views of Beacon Hill and the Back Bay skyline. Many local and travel photographers are drawn to this hot spot in Cambridge. I am no different and I stop by Memorial Drive regularly, chasing the light for my next Pictures of Boston galleries addition. During my last Boston photo tour I arrived well before sunset and people in sailboats, kayaks, small motor boats and on paddle boats were still enjoying a beautiful summer day on the waters.

I set up on memorial Drive, not far from the Massachusetts Avenue bridge, for stunning views of the familiar Boston architecture and the new Millennium Tower at downtown crossing. Known as Millie, the building is a newcomer in the Boston cityscape and is the third Tallest Skyscraper in Boston. I incorporated sailboats and the skyline reflections as foreground features while the main subject of the Boston skyline was struck by the last light of the day, painting the city in warm hues. Aperture was set to f/11 resulting in an exposure time of 1/50 of a second at ISO200. A hand-held split neutral density filter balanced the darker Charles River scenery and skyline against the brighter sunset sky.

During post processing I followed my my routine workflow removing dust spots and imperfections, adjusting lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final Boston Charles River skyline photography image Charles River Sailboats with Boston Millennium Tower.

Good light and happy photo making!

My best,
