You don’t need to have a lot of elements to make a nice photograph, just the right elements.

Photo Friday: Night Landscape

October 13, 2017

Landscape photography is photographing a space in which the space itself becomes the subject.  The space can be as vast as a desert or ocean, or miniature like the head of a pin.  It just has to be a space.

Today’s picture was taken off the top of the Casco Bay Bridge.  I took it at night as a fog rolled in.

On my walk home from my new job I cross the Casco Bay Bridge.  This is the view from the Bridge.

Photo Friday: Adding Drama with Clouds

May 1, 2015

Today’s picture is devoted to clouds.  Clouds can add drama, mood, and can help lead your eyes in a certain direction.  It can make an ordinary picture unique, and no matter how many times you take the same subject, you will never get the same picture thanks to clouds.  So, if you’re the type who waits for a sunny day to take out the camera, don’t.  You’ll get more interesting shots if you just include clouds.

More power!!!

Thanks to my tax refund, I was finally able to get the lens I wanted, which was an Opteka 650 to 1300 millimeter lens.  This lens will enable me to get shots of animals too skittish to be approached, and up until now, I haven’t been able to get any shots of.

As a quick test, I took three shots of a boat from my living room.  The first one is a normal view with a normal lens (about 35 mm).  The second shot is 5 times the normal lens.  The third shot is at the full 1300 millimeters.  The last shot is somewhat blurry, but I didn’t have time to take the shot properly.  I am going to give it a better test tomorrow.

One thing to keep in mind, I did not crop any of these images.  You are seeing these pictures exactly as I saw them.

I hope you enjoy.
