Macro Photography near Bash Bish Waterfalls

On my last trip to Western Massachusetts I stopped to photograph the Bish Bash waterfalls. Although it is usually a beautiful photo destination for capturing waterfalls with surrounding flora in autumn colors, on this morning I was not finding the pictures I had in mind. Once I covered the ground at the bottom of the falls I started to make my way up to the top to explore that area through my lens … Read it all .

How to Care for Photo Acrylic Prints

In my first 2 blog posts of this series we discussed how to protect and clean Aluminum Metal Prints and Canvas Prints. This week we will be discussing how to care for acrylic prints. Acrylic printing has a lustrous glossy finish showing off a depth and clarity to photo art that is incomparable. It takes the fine art of photography to an entire new level of modern art. Contemporary look, great color vibrancy with a near 3-D effect makes them an popular Interior Decorating Solution for public areas in hotel, sports bar, restaurant, lobby, and studio settings. Photo acrylic prints are also great for hanging in home or office and truly make for spectacular personal gifts. With proper care, acrylic prints will last for years, so you can fully enjoy and appreciate the artwork for many years to come:

6 Basic Photo Tips to Build and Boost your Photography Confidence

6 Basic Photo Tips to Build and Boost your Photography Confidence

Use the following simple 6 basic photo tips to catapult your photography to the next level and build your confidence. These 6 easy to apply points will provide you the biggest bang for the buck, love to hear your feedback!

Photo Tip #1: Utilize the Rule of Thirds as a Starting Point for Your Composition

Don't use the Rule of Thirds as a set rule; more as a guideline or starting point for a more interesting and pleasing photographic composition. In Landscape Photography it is best to place the horizon in accordance to the importance of the sky; with dramatic sky formations placing the horizon in the lower third will give the sky more preference, for images with stronger foregrounds and weaker cloud or sky formations a horizon in the upper third of the image is more preferred. Usually locating the horizon in the middle makes a photo ordinary and static. An exception to the just said would be a grand landscape lake reflection. It is easy to apply the same approach to Flower Photography where laying the focus or point of interest within the flower at one of the four intersections has great impact by leaving room for the viewer to explore the image but also to be drawn back to the focus point.

Photo Tip #2: Apply the appropriate Depth of Field to your Photograph

Depth of Field or DoF relates to the parts of a photograph that are in full focus and show acceptable details. We, as photographers, have control over the amount of depth of field in a photograph and depending on our photographic or artistic goals we may vary 1 or all of the 4 factors that determine a shallow or extensive depth of field: Focal Length, Subject Distance or Magnification, Choice of Focus Point, Aperture or f-stop camera setting ...

Abstract Flower Photography Artwork

One thing I enjoy most about The Art of Flower Photography is that I often do not know what I will be capturing with my camera. An Easter lily is a good example, here the white narrow conical throat of its petals with the yellow stamens makes for exceptional abstract flower photography. Once I start composing and photographing, I move my focus >>> Learn More.

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.

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

November 16th, 2018

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!
