Here is the current level of the eclipse in Portland.  I just thought it would be interesting.

I love festivals, especially those featuring local restaurants.  The Noonan Family Ranch from Maine has prepared some delectable lamb shish kebabs for the Old Port Festival.

Photo Friday: Majestic Birds

June 2, 2017

This time of the year is perfect for capturing snowy egrets, and one finally got close enough for me to get a great shot.  If you’ve ever tried to shoot these birds, and ended up with a white blob, the secret is to under expose it by one stop; it makes all the difference.

First Look Photo: Shooting Bugles

May 31, 2017

This week I found a flower I’ve never seen.  It was tiny, purple, and clustered.  I did the usual research and found nothing in the books.  I finally found it on the internet.  It’s a flower called a blue bugle, and it grows wild in England and Ireland, but seems to enjoy the atmosphere of Maine.

First Look Photo: Snail’s Pace

The rain can bring out some beautiful morning creatures, like this snail.  They’re small, and hard to see when you’re not looking for them, but they make great subjects.

First Look Photo: Keeping it Fun and Creative

May 3, 2017

I just spent one year studying photography with the New York Institute of Photography, and learned a lot about the craft, and business of photography, but in order to keep my passion alive, I also have to keep it fun and creative.  This is why I have been learning how to use the Enlight App on my IPhone.  Today’s shot was one I created on the app.

Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.

Photo Friday: Dramatic Cloud Formations

March 24, 2017

I think I’ve said it before, but I love cloud formations.  In a recent unit in my school they talked about stockpiling images of clouds for use as backgrounds of architecture photography, if the sky is uneventful.  This is what today’s shot is for.
