The wild flowers were in bloom and the grass green out in Arizona in early March of 2017. A tremendous climate! I WANNA GO BACK!
This is a nice little structure I saw online and then drove down to check it out. There was a nice golden sunset and I used a 6 Stop ND filter to slow the water down just a tad to get that nice smooth look. I worked a lot on detail and noise reduction in this image and this is as far as I am going here. It came out much better than the two versions I uploaded to Pixoto.com and 500px! I have to learn to wait until the image is done before sharing them...
Bold and rugged against the stormy sky. A gorgeous place to be. Superstition Mountains just outside of Phoenix...
This is taken from the Cambridge side of the Charles River right in from of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It is a large, panoramic view of the gorgeous skyline that is Boston just shortly after blue hour.
The city seems to become much closer when viewed at this location at night vs during daylight hours and I tried to capture that feel in the final image. Prints are available for this high resolution image.
Near Killington Mountain in Vermont, this old barn really stood out against the Fall Colors and dramatic sky. A nice scene to capture.
This is a more detailed and close up shot of the beauty at Oliver Mills here in Middleboro, MA.
Fan's Pier Boston
An Iconic Boston location looking into the city. This was a 7 shot PANO to show detail.
This was created using a 105mm Nikon Macro Lens. I pulled out the color and textures on the flower and surrounding flowers. I like the color...
Located in Historic Boston Harbour, George's Island is a playground for those photographers who want to capture some really interesting lighting inside old war rooms. Make sure to bring some lighting. This is an 8 second exposure and there was a couple right behind the arch way to the left. Somehow they stood there for about 9 seconds. Perfect TIMING! :-)
This is a test for me: Shooting right into the sun rising. I used an ND filter here to capture the slow moving fog on water surface. It was a tad too bright out to really get the use of it that I was going for.
Oh well... NEXT TIME! ;-)
Image was taken at Oliver Mills Park, Middelboro, MA. It is a small park right off a busy route but it has several small water scenes like this and is just a very nice area. Great place to come for some camera practice.
Rhode Island Sunset
Bretton Point State Park - Newport, RI
A great spot right on the tip of Newport. Surrounded by mansions just a mile or two up the street, this is a great area for tourist.
Old School - New Court
This was an old high school in Fall River, MA turned into a courthouse. A gorgeous building.
This WWII War Ship sits in the Heritage State Park water front in Fall River, MA. There are also other ships and subs down there. A favorite photo spot for many local photographers. The waterfront is being developed and hopefully they will have a nice area down there in future years.
This is a funny one. This was a throw away photo taken just to test an exposure reading in the woods at Massasoit State Park in MA. I saw it and played with it a little in lightroom before deleting it for good. I saw something and then brought it over to Photoshop where I tested out my newly found skills using Luminosity Masks. I highly suggest anyone who wishes to learn more about this SUPER powerful technique purchase the Master Class from Jimmy McIntyre. Photoshop basic skills are required to follow along with his fast paced tutorials but they are great. http://www.shutterevolve.com is the place to go for his stuff. I am in no way affiliated with him at all. Just a grateful student!!
Entry To Cape Cod
The Bourne Bridge is known as the Gateway to Cape Cod, MA. This old bench seemed like a fitting foreground element with the two bridges in the distant scene.
Focus stacked image to bring sharpness from very near to the absolute furthest spot in this scene.
These little guys were basking in the glow of the summer sun down at Heritage State Park in Fall River, MA.
This image was taken right in Middletown, RI. The golden sun shining through at about 6:45PM in August makes for a nice powerful lighting source to illuminate the hay and cast some nice long shadows. I was wanting a few more close by hay rolls (Is that what they call them??) but I would have had to go down field more and didn't want a farmer chasing me out!!
Multiple image blend for focus sharpness from front to rear and also sky was added from another image for an interesting and unique look.
Sky On Fire
This image was taken from the Portsmouth side of this span which was built in the mid 1960's. Catching sunsets can be a tricky thing as many photographers know. This sky was separated by a clear sky just above the horizon. I am still learning much about photography in this shot as the foreground lacks any real interest. My aim was to capture the spirit of the sky which was very dramatic. I can safely say I think I did at least that in this photo.
An overload of golden leaves on the ground here in Vermont. Driving down the road, the entire area was bright with a golden hue. A simple jump out of car, compose and fire type shot. The Fall Season is sorely missed.
Here is a backlit photo of a super cute little kid! Fun day with this photoshoot!
New Hampshire Color
This is a photo off the "Kang" highway around Lincoln, NH. It was very cold and windy for this shot. The sun and clouds had been fighting all day and it was nearing sundown. I waited and waited until the sun cracked through the clouds. This scene lasted about 10 seconds - I was lucky to get it :-)
Brother n Sister
A warm fall photo of big sister with her brother. Taken at Colt State Park in Bristol, RI
This little guy stopped and posed for me :-)
Here is a highly detailed image of an old tractor my dad uses after all these years. It is a shot done with two speed lights and shows great detail.
Welcome to Color
A walking bridge in New Hampshire leads to an inviting swath of color this past Fall (2015). Waiting for people to clear the bridge was probably the most difficult part of capturing this image.
