Photography Tip - Graduated Neutral Density Filter

In this landscape photograph of a blue dinghy on Cape Cod, I was challenged by difficult lighting conditions due to the high contrast of the sunset sky and the darker landscape scenery of the marsh, blue boat and surrounding woods. Metering on the boat and ... Learn More.

Flower Fine Art Photography on Black

In these 2 photos of a purple iris I used a black cardboard as the backdrop. Dark backgrounds really make the colors of a flower pop and give the image a touch of elegance. Usually I choose a large enough black cardboard from Staples that I position behind the floral photographic object using the backrest of a chair for support. As a base I use the chair itself that I place in front of a window. The set up of my Macro Photography studio next to our dining room window provides exceptional >>> Learn More.

Behind the Photography Image - Technique, Camera Settings and Circumstances of Sunset over Cape Cod Bay

Heading south of Boston on Route 3 brings you right to Cape Cod, a pristine summer get away and vacation destination for many New Englanders. I routinely make the 1 and a half hour drive down to the Cape to capture its beautiful coastal scenery at all times of the day and in all seasons. During my last photo trip this summer I returned to Paine's Beach and Landing to photograph an oyster farming setting with baskets, cases, and beds. This evening clear skies dominated and coincided with low tide and a full moon rising across Cape Cod Bay. The sun was already very low painting the beach in beautiful hues. I found Jellyfish on the beach that beautifully reflected the sunset light. The sun was about to sink below the horizon when I ... LEARN MORE.

Photography Story and Technique Behind the Image of Boston Night

April 24th, 2019

Photography Story and Technique Behind the Image of Boston Night

Opposite of Boston downtown and its financial district across the Boston Harbor is East Boston. East Boston provides tremendous Boston Skyline Views from where one can admire the skyline and the many boats crossing the Boston harbor. Using water reflections in a composition to lead a viewer into and through a picture is a very effective compositional element. In this latest night photography image I used this feature to guide the viewer into the Boston cityscape and towards its historic architecture landmark of the Custom House of Boston. Clear blue sky made for a picture perfect photography night out with a beautiful skyline reflection.

Aperture in this image was f/14 with an exposure time of 30 seconds at ISO100. During my routine image processing steps in Photoshop I removed dust spots, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final Boston Night photography image.

Good light and happy photo making!

Basic Compositional Photo Tip

Basic Compositional Photo Tip

Photo Tip #14 of 20: Don't let the horizon fall dead center in the picture. It most likely always creates a boring image (exceptions are beautiful landscape reflections) Instead place the horizon low to enhance the feel of spatial depth of the open landscape or to emphasize a dramatic cloud formation. For images with stronger foregrounds and weaker cloud or sky formations a horizon in the upper third of the image is more preferred. >>> LEARN MORE
