Photo Friday: Ghosting

November 10, 2017

Ghosting is a great special effect using much slower shutter speeds to blur the action of someone walking.  This one was taken at 1/20 second.

This is an appetizing building with a tasty history.

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.

I love the glow the street light cast on this sidewalk.

Today’s photo is of a place that seems mostly inactive until the sun goes down.  One side of the street is made up entirely of bars.

The good thing about cityscapes is the different angles, and lighting makes each shot unique.

As I start the last photo assignment for the professional course at New York Institute of Photography, I am happy to note that this is not the end of my education, but the beginning.

My career in the photo industry is about to begin, maybe not today, but soon, and I know the need for continued education will be a key to my growth as a photographer, and eventual success of all I dream my career can be.

With that, here is today’s photo from my last assignment, there are going to be two more, but I haven’t taken them yet.

A Haunting Self Portrait

December 20, 2012

The hardest part of taking this picture was the lack of light.  It was taken at 10:30 at night, with the moon covered by clouds.  I started with two minute exposures at ISO 100, but all I got was darkness with a couple of light spots in the distance.  In order to get the shot the brightness I wanted I had to go up to ISO 3200.

The face, and the fence had another problem.  The flash I was using wasn’t enough. In the end, I had to use my flash light to paint myself and the fence with light.

This turned out to be a great experience photographically, and a fun challenge, which was to do a self portrait in an unconventional manner.
