Color Emotion for Your Artwork

June 15th, 2017

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.

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

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!

Inspiration, Technique And Location of Photography Image Boston Night

June 11th, 2017

East Boston provides one of the best photo locations for Boston Skyline Photography at sunset. The sun usually sinks behind the cityscape and turns the sky into a mixture of blue and orange. The calm Boston Harbor waters this night made for a beautiful reflection which I incorporated as a foreground feature to add more visual interest for the viewer to explore.

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

Behind the Boston Photography 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.

You Shine Like A Star - Nauset Light Night Photography

June 2nd, 2017

You Shine Like A Star - Nauset Light Night Photography

Nauset Light in Eastham, MA on Cape Cod is one of New England's most iconic lighthouses. The red and white structure stands tall atop Nauset Beach and the Cape Cod National Seashore. It is well known as the logo for Cape Cod Potato Chips and also goes by Nauset Beach Light. The famous lighthouse makes for a great photography subjects at any time of the day. I recently ventured out to capture the lighthouse at night under a sky full of stars.

At daylight the parking lot is filled with beach lovers and parking is a hassle; arriving at sunrise, sunset or night makes it a no-hassle activity and free. It's a short walk across the street and you can get to work right away.

That night mostly clear sky was dominant, perfect for star and night photography of Nauset Light. I quickly set up tripod and camera gear and got to work. I used my Canon 7D with a 10-22mm lens set at f/3.5. The shutter speed was 20 seconds at ISO1600. During post -processing of the lighthouse photo I minimized noise, adjusted white balance, lighting, color saturation and contrast. Before sharpening the final image I removed dust spots, imperfection and further minimized digital noise.

Good light and happy photo making!

The Dark Side of Boston

June 1st, 2017

The Dark Side of Boston

Capturing the Boston Skyline at various times of the day has become a top priority for me. I love the quietude of a early morning shoot when I have the city almost for myself. Late afternoon into twilight provide beautiful lighting and one can feel the energy of Boston and its people coming alive. Once the twilight has passed there is no need to pack up our gear. The nightlight provides the photographer with fabulous photo opportunities as well. I like how the dark sky makes the city lights and neon signs pop in front of it. Headlights and rear lights of moving cars commuting into Boston turn into white and red stripes respectively. Effectively used those lines make for great compositional elements that lead a viewer into and through a photography image. A solid tripod, manual focus, low ISO settings and utilizing camera self timer or a remote release device are essential for successful night photography of skylines. I discovered this new location a few weeks back and made a couple of trips there. It is amazing how Route 1 and the Tobin Bridge with its constant traffic lead into the city. The view also allows to capture iconic Landmarks of Boston such as the Bunker Hill Bridge, Prudential Center and the TD Bank North Garden.

Aperture in this photo was set to f/11 and at ISO 200 provided an >>> LEARN MORE

How to Take Care of Photography Aluminum Metal Prints

May 29th, 2017

How to Take Care of Photography Aluminum Metal Prints

I am starting a new photo blog series where I provide some guidance on taking care of your
Photography Art Investments. In this first installment I will be talking about the do's and don't's of taking care of your photography aluminum metal prints so you can enjoy it for many years to come. In the coming weeks and following blog posts I will further discuss canvas prints, photo prints and acrylic prints.

A photography aluminum print brings artworks to life, it's stylish and adds depth. The high gloss of photo metal prints complement the rich colors of any photography image to produce the most stunning results. So how do you get the most out of those art prints?

- Do not put an aluminum print face down on a hard surface as you may scratch its surface.

- Do not drop it as the metal print may get dented.

- Clean an aluminum print by gently wiping it using only a soft dry cloth.

- Do not use Windex or other cleaning solvents. A cloth dampened with water may be used on occasion, but only when necessary.

- Display prints with care. When resting on a surface, edges of a print may get worn over time and cause damage.

- An aluminum print shows best when it is viewed at eye level using indirect or ambient light.

- Aluminum prints look well in dim lit areas and are a perfect solution when decorating dark corners in any room where nothing else works.

- Do not use a spotlight to enhance the viewing of a print, it bounces off the metal and usually washes out the image.

The Wayside Inn Grist Mill in Sudbury Central Massachusetts

The Wayside Inn Grist Mill in Sudbury Central Massachusetts

The Wayside Inn Grist Mill in Sudbury Massachusetts on a beautiful spring morning. I am glad I hung around a bit since the sky finally opened and the scenery became alive. The warm morning sunlight painted the tree canopies in beautiful spring colors which stand in nice contrast with the darker foreground of the historic landmark. A long exposure setting conveys the flowing water of the brook in front of the scenic New England view and across the waterfall at the Sudbury Grist Mill.

Sudbury Grist Mill photography images are available as museum quality photo, canvas, acrylic, wood or metal prints. Wall art prints may be framed and matted to the individual liking and room decor needs.
