Photo Friday: Available Light

January 12, 2018

The last time I tried to photograph one of these nocturnal rabbits, I had to use flash which caused a horrible case of red eye.  This time, I was privileged to capture another rabbit in front of a lit sign, without cropping.

First look Photo: In the Mist

January 10, 2018

Thanks to the sub-zero temperatures, recently, Casco Bay has been shrouded in a mist of sea smoke.  This shot was taken during a temperature of -6.  The mist wasn’t quite so heavy, and looked almost haunting.

Photo Friday: A Non Cliché Selfie

January 5, 2018

Photography is full of clichés.  Selfies are among the worst, however, you can change that by a simple shift of viewpoint.  Most selfies have a standard straight on view, with the ugliest expression, aka a duck face.  When you take a selfie, have a purpose.  Today’s shot is a selfie of me in my little workspace at home.

I will never use a duck face. (ew!)

Thanks to the biting cold in Portland, Maine steam rises from the tops of buildings, making for very interesting photographic opportunities.

Today’s shot is of a bird called a bufflehead.  It’s a duck like bird that is not usually seen in this part of Maine.

Strangely enough, I love winter pictures in black and white.  This shot was taken during the second snow storm to hit the Portland area this season.

Some people will do anything to keep the snow off their head, like this woman and her umbrella.
