Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

Another example of beautiful flower photography at your door step. To get this shot I went to one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Hall's Pond Wildlife Sanctuary in Brookline, MA. The wildlife is amazing for a little pond in the middle of the city. Over the years I have captured some precious images there. I go regularly to explore the sanctuary, including its formal garden, where I composed this lily stamen close-up. While strolling the garden I was attracted by the greenish yellowish color of the lily. My goal was to have one of the stamens in focus and keep the others blurry. The lily petals were supposed to provide the background. In order to achieve this effect I set the camera aperture to maximum possible and zoomed all the way out to a 80mm lens setting. This combination provided me with the limited depth of field I was looking for. I snapped a series of photographs for optimal exposure and left only sharpening the image to post processing.

Behind the Macro Photography Image of a Slender Spreadwing Damselfly

Last weekend we spent in Maine with family. Sunday morning I had a chance to explore the family garden which was packed with little critters. While photographing insects a Slender Spreadwing damselfly landed on a nearby flower. It is quite amazing how gracious damselflies look when they hang on to a floral. In seconds with tripod and camera in place I switched from landscape to vertical format, manually focused on the the damselfly head and snagged a few pictures. The magnifying feature on my camera allowed me to pin point focus. The camera self timer combined with a tripod minimized camera shake and ensured best image quality.

New England Covered Bridges

New England is famous for its covered bridges and they make for excellent photography subjects. Some are easy to photograph while others are more challenging. The easiest are the ones in a scenic, non-obstructive environment setting, the hardest ones are in a more urban, difficult to isolate environment. Especially autumn makes for great New England Covered Bridge photography as the backdrop is often submerged in abundant fall colors. Join me on this virtual road trip and >>> EXPERIENCE MORE
