Photo Tip #9 of 20: Use the Rule of Thirds as a guideline or starting point for your composition. Draw a raster board over the picture in your mind or check your camera manual to see if it is available as a feature on your digital camera. In this seascape photography image I placed the horizon low because the orange sky (2/3 of the image) was more appealing then the blue cold Atlantic Ocean. The bird in the upper right corner and the early sunlight striking the rock in the lower 1/3 of the picture added the icing to the cake >>> Find More Photo Tips

In this nature macro photography blog post I compiled some of my personal favorite Raindrop Photography Artwork in a collage. The selection varies from flowers drenched in raindrops to photos of a single raindrop on a blade of grass. All pictures were taken locally in the beautiful natural environment of my home state of Massachusetts where I benefited from my own Exposure and Flower Photography Tips.

Monday morning I stepped out of bed in the wee hours and made my way over to one of my favorite Boston Skyline Photography locations; the Boston University bridge which spans over the Mass Pike, a railroad track and the Charles River. I like this location as it provides the photographer with a pristine view of the Charles River banks and the Boston skyline landmarks such as the John Hancock Tower or the Prudential Center.
It turned out to be time well spend. The sunrise was gorgeous providing me with ample lighting and sky colors. Finding a pleasing composition was not an easy task but I settled on a picture that included aforementioned architecture and the famous Citgo Sign on Kendall Square near Boston Fenway Park. Camera equipped with a 24-70mm lens and steady on a tripod I was taking my photographs when suddenly the lights of the Citgo Sign turned on again. Well into sunrise it caught me by surprise but >>> LEARN MORE

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!

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.

I regularly visit the beaches of Cape Cod Bayfor sunset photography. Needless to say sunsets never disappoint here. No difference on one of my latest trips where I photographed at Skaket Beach. This was a new beach and it took a bit of time and exploring before settling on a pleasing composition. I finally succeeded when I found some nice beach grass leading into the picture. While the sun was nearing the horizon colors in the sky exploded. A saturated blue with clouds colored in pink and orange dominated the sky. The spectacle was beautifully reflected in the Cape Cod Bay and beach. I used a split ND filter to balance the bright sunset sky with the darker foreground directly in front of me. Aperture setting was f/14 providing a shutter speed of � a second at ISO100. During routine post processing I adjusted lighting, contrast, color saturation before removing imperfections and sharpening the final Cape Cod photography image of
