Seven Days in the South

Darkness presses in, interrupted only by oncoming headlights and the green glow of the dashboard panel. Nineties alternative trickles from the speakers filling the air with the occasional melody that is far better than silence. The unfamiliar road ahead is nearly empty and the world in the rearview is black. His tired eyes begin to […]

Shrooming

Staying Local

Seasons slowly change and I’m still discovering all the places around this city that I’ve missed. A few walks through Stark Park and out to Battery Point on Massabesic Lake revealed some scenic views and also gave me a case of poison ivy on my legs. Of these images, my favorite is the mushroom. Late […]

Below the Falls

Tuesday Night Photoshoot

After scouting out locations in the summer heat and seeing potential in the Citizens Bank parking garage and the PSNH park along the Merrimack, I ventured back one evening to capture these images of Hannah. It wasn’t long before she commented on the oddity of posing for the HDR photos that I was starting off […]

Morning Light on Madison

Presidential Traverse

Given the amount of pain that our bodies were in, none of us would fess up to whose idea it was to hike the entire Presidential Range in a day. Granted, the idea isn’t something far-fetched, however, none of us have done much hiking lately. A Presidential Traverse consists of a minimum of around 18 […]

LakeFest

LakeFest is an annual fundraising event hosted by the New Hampshire Lakes Association. This years event took place at Church Landing in Meredith and featured a silent auction, two comedians, and a number of vendors for both food and beverage. I spent the night as a volunteer photographing everything that caught my eye while also […]

Manchester NH Skyline Black and White Night

Manchester Skyline

Last month’s heatwave slowed my picture-taking to a crawl. I’m not a fan of hot and humid weather, but being inside was making me stir crazy. I ventured out one early morning for a walk to do some location scouting and after finding what I was looking for, wound up with the start of a […]

Westward Retreat

Playing With The Light

For a number of years, I considered myself a writer. It was easier to describe the fingerlike rays tickling the blue emptiness above than it was to capture it with a camera. I fear my ability to capture the essence of anything in carefully chosen words has slipped away and been replaced with the desire […]

Hands Across The Merrimack

Outside the Visible Spectrum

Our eyes only pickup on a small percentage of the spectrum of light. Beyond what we see are other wavelengths, some of which are able to be captured on a camera sensor. At one end of the visible spectrum we have ultraviolet light. At the other, we find infrared. By adding a filter onto the […]

Dental Exam

The Art of Making Due

On Wednesday afternoon as I left home, I grabbed the camera in case I came across anything worth shooting. The nifty fifty was mounted on the front, and seeing as how I didn’t figure I’d even use the camera, I figured that was good enough. Two hours later, I’m at the Franklin Park Zoo and […]

Bizaarchitecture

On Saturday afternoon, I gave myself a short self-guided tour of the Mill buildings between Granite Street and Bridge Street. Both the Millyard Museum and the Science Center were closing and people were funneling out of the building. Of course, it wasn’t long before children were asking me “are you a photographer? What are you […]

Car2

Planet Subaru

After my last panoramic learning experience, I decided to try something a little more complicated with a lot more time on my hands. I cleaned out my car, returned the seats to their upright positions, and set up the tripod inside the car. Given the bright sunlight and the dark interior, I decided to bracket […]

StairwellDown

Stairwell D

I walk up these stairs multiple times each week and finally took the time to shoot something. However, I made a number of mistakes that I didn’t realize until later. The first was that I didn’t level the tripod, which hurt me when I went to try to stitch all the images together. If you […]

Spirals

Projections

After days spent recalibrating my panoramic tripod head, I took some time to edit some of the results. Each projection is composed of 9 HDR photos and each HDR photo is created from 5 photos of different exposures – if you do the math, that’s 45 photos to create a projection. The top photo is […]
