The beautiful thing about sunsets is that no two sunsets are ever the same.

I love a sky so full of color, it looks painted on.

Photo Friday: One Man’s Ordinary

February 9, 2018

The biggest issue with many photographers is they get complacent with their surroundings and don’t think they can find anything “interesting” to shoot.  I read an article during the 80’s that helped me through this problem. It said that what one man finds uninteresting, another finds amazing.

Don’t allow yourself to think you have nothing to shoot, because it’s all interesting to someone.

Photo Friday: Leading Lines

January 19, 2018

This week, I had a convergence of photo assignments.  Both my school, and website challenge called for leading lines.  Here is my response.  I love how the sled contrasts with the rest of the scene.

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.

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

Photo Friday: All About the Lights

September 29, 2017

I recently changed jobs, and that means the pictures I can take to and from work has been extended to the city.  I wanted to get a nice shot of the city building tower, at night without flash, and this is my result.  I increased the ISO to 3200 and adjusted the exposure to compensate.

I love the way the lights play on the architecture, and bring out the texture of the building.
