18 Examples of Beautiful Butterfly Photography

When I am not hiking or wandering the beautiful state and national parks/sites of the Northeast I keep myself occupied with local macro or butterfly photography in and around Boston. A prime destination during the summer for photographing macro images of insects in their natural habitat is the Mass Audubon Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in Worcester, MA. During the long winters of New England I make the 2 hour drive out from Boston to Magic Wings in South Dartmouth. Magic Wings is a beautiful butterfly garden that provides the nature photographer with unlimited photo opportunities and a fun outing for a day.

11 New England Fall Foliage Photography Tips

New England autumn colors are famous throughout the world. Leaf peepers and photographers alike flog to the Northeast of the United States of America to experience the marvelous fall foliage glory in Acadia National Park and State Parks of Maine, Rode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont. New York State to the west and the Great Smokey Mountains further down east are 2 more fabulous destination for fall foliage leaf peeping and autumn photography. This blog post compiles 11 photo tips for better fall foliage photography results. The photo hints discuss how to capture mood and color of this spectacular season and bring home beautiful photography impressions and memories. The pictures and links provide further tutorials that may be of interest ... hope you explore and enjoy!

Photo Tip #1: Plan your New England leaf peeping or fall foliage photography trip well ahead of time this year. There are many sites that provide the required information but The Foliage Network is one of the best and this website provides accurate foliage reports for color and leaf drop. In my experience "High Color" is the preferred time to find these glorious New England fall colors.

Photo Tip #2: Get out after a rain storm has passed to take advantage of beautiful lighting conditions when the sunlight breaks through and provides spectacular lighting condition. The air is clearest in the morning and after rain storms making for good times to strive for stunning and scenic autumn landscape photography compositions.

Photo Tip #3: Do not be fooled and discouraged by an overcast and rainy day weather forecast. Cloudy days provides beautiful and well balanced light that enhances details in darker areas. Rain drops on leaves make for excellent macro photography images and wet leaves turn the leaves on fire. Eliminate overcast sky by using your telephoto lens to achieve a tighter, more Intimate Landscape composition that is more beneficial and interesting.

Behind the Photography Image of a Boston Skyline Favorite

A few days ago I visited one of my favorite photo locations for Boston Skyline Photography in East Boston, Massachusetts. I like this location as it provides one of the best views of downtown and the Boston Harbor. I also discovered some wood pilings from an old pier in the waters that make for great foreground features to add interest and depth to a photograph. Effectively used in a composition the pilings also lead a viewer in the and through the frame. That day, I arrived a bit early for twilight photography. There were beautiful last clouds rushing through the picture as the sky was clearing towards the end of the day. Equipped with a neutral density filter I extended exposure times to blur out the fast moving clouds and provide a sense of cloud movement. The longer exposure times also created Silky Water Effects in the harbor waters and around the wood pilings. In order to overcome the contrast between the darker foreground and the brighter sky I utilized a >>> LEARN MORE

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.

Boston Skyline at Twilight

November 21st, 2018

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.
