Isolation Project, Day 29.

Day 29. Wow, has it been almost a month already? I’m not wishing I was getting out to more scenic locales nearly as much as I thought I would. Normally I start getting a bit cranky when I go much longer than a week without heading to the mountains or the seacoast. Then again, under… Read More

Isolation Project, Day 20.

Becoming green. As well as getting closer to getting caught up with this project, the green of spring is finally arriving in my gardens. Still nowhere near any flowers blooming, but several of the ornamental grasses in my gardens are starting to emerge, providing me with something other than the sweetfern that surrounds my yard… Read More

Though it still looks like winter in many parts of New Hampshire, it’s slowly loosening its grip on the land as the days grow longer and… Read More

Isolating Elements

Normally when out photographing I focus on expansive landscapes, grand scenic views of the dramatic views in the mountains and along the coast of New Hampshire. On my last outing to the north country I chose to make images with a more limited view. Instead of wide open spaces, the majority of what I captured were… Read More

Up Close And Personal

When photographing landscapes, especially with a wide angle lens, I often place my lens closeup to my foreground element. Doing so accentuates the prominence of your foreground in the composition by giving the illusion that it is larger than it really is. Below are a few examples of how I used a wide angle lens… Read More
