I had every intention of shooting with my ND filter today. I even got so far as to spending the greater part of my sunset shoot one 300 second photograph at a time. After cursory glances at my LCD I was pleased with the exposures rolling through. It wasn’t until closer inspection—after I was packing […]
Made with a Canon 14mm f/2.8 L II lens.
I’m not one to usually post numerous treatments of the same photograph, but I thought it made sense here for comparison’s sake. But the more I think about it now, I’m beginning to prefer the color treatment over the black and white I posted previously.
For months now I’ve had my eye on an ND filter. I’ve been coveting the sublime long exposure work of talented fine art photographers and hoped to someday begin learning their craft and working it into my repertoire. After a bit of research—and some savings—I figured out everything I’d need to get a filter mounted […]
Yep— This is what I’ve been waiting for. The perfect storm of a snow covered marsh, expressive clouds and an explosion of color. The occasional visits of the Polar Vortex this year have served to paint the most dramatic skies; and tonight just may have been the best of all. I shan’t distract you from […]
Here’s my sunset shot from yesterday—I was out for an evening of dining and drinks in Atlantic City with friends celebrating a birthday and was unable to post. A good time was had by all. This was taken on Cedar Run Dock Road and I’ve composed a photograph from this very location before. While the […]
I was pressed for time yesterday and unable to post this shot before the Downton Abbey season finale and True Detective. Priorities, you know? Prior to all that I made my way to the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge to meet up with my buddy Jon and his mom. Ever since I’ve known about this […]
Yesterday photography happened by dawn, dusk, and night. By the time the evening rolled around my friends and I were hoping to head into the Pinelands for some astrophotography at Bodine Field. By the time it came time to head out a quick look skyward to us all we needed to know—we were clouded out. […]
Literally. I’ve gotta say, it’s been a pretty solid day of shooting. It started out with this morning’s pleasantries on the beaches of Ship Bottom and ended with the deepening blue skies of a Dock Road blue hour. Since I spend so much of my time photographing the marshes of Cedar Run Dock Road, I […]
I’m not exactly a morning person so it’s not everyday I buck-up, pop the cot and go shoot a sunrise. But with a fellow photo buddy in town it’s a little easier to find the motivation. Conditions were pretty excellent this morning, comfortable temperatures with a cool early day glow left me thinking I’m real […]
Yesterday—this being posted a day late—was shaping up as one of those sunsets that look good on paper. A quick look out the window 90 minutes prior to the sun’s scheduled egress looked promising; bountiful clouds with dramatic bottom-side shadows littered the sky. I was pleased. Yet as it has done so many times before, […]
