Sitting in Central Park

Reading Zone

While on an Arcanum photowalk a couple months back, we started and ended our journey in Central Park. As we’re about to leave the park I noticed this guy sitting perfectly on the rocks, minding his business. So of course I had to photograph him. Portraits don’t need to show a face to tell a Continue reading…

NYC From Above The Train Cars

New York City

The High Line is a special place to many New Yorkers.  It’s now also a tourist trap for outsiders. I’ve done many photowalks on The High Line, so it gets quite old, fast. However, this past October I was on a photowalk following a day at PhotoPlus Expo, and it was my first time on Continue reading…

Perfect Panoramic Stitching With No Parallax Using A Nodal Slide

panoramic-stitching-nodal-slide

Panoramic stitching can produce artifacts and ghosting by default without any adjustments to the panning point of the tripod. If fact, the way to achieve perfect panoramic stitching is to make sure that the lens is centered over the panning point of the tripod. The point of the lens that removes the parallax effect is Continue reading…

Bass Harbor Lighthouse

If you haven’t been to Acadia National Park then you likely never thought about Bass Harbor Lighthouse before.  But if you ever plan on going on to Acadia then prepare for an interesting experience.

Thunder Hole

Today I wanted to share a second photograph from Thunder Hole. The first was a cool toned long exposure, which is happily hung on a client’s wall. But this photograph is perfect for narrow walls, or hallways. It’s also a warmer tone which works with colorful rooms. It is hard to pick out my favorite Continue reading…

Acadia Zen

This zen-like rock formation sits at Otter Cliff, among many others.  After I was done photographing the beautiful seascape I decided to spend some time walking the slippery rocks to photograph the formations.

In 2014 I started mentoring other photographers in The Arcanum.  Part of the process is critiquing many photographs, and the critiques are done via Google Hangouts, recorded and made available for all Arcanum members to view. During one of the critiques an apprentice asked me about how she could slow down more.  I broke into Continue reading…
