Water Drops and Product Photography

February 04, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Obviously I've been in hibernation as per the lack of entries here.  I did do one private shoot for a non-profit early last month, but aside from that... fairly inactive with shooting.  So the other night I experimented with shoot water droplets again and also broke out my fotodiox studio and tried out some product photography with a few things in my collection.

"Avalokiteshvara is the Bodhisattva who most embodies compassion. The name Avalokiteshvara has its root meaning as 'he who observes the sounds of the world'. His main purpose is to listen to the supplications and cries for help from those in difficulty and provide them with aid.

Winter Reimagined

December 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

With this, I'm finally all caught up with my trips... hallelujah!  So this one was the "Winter Reimagined" event over at Tower Hill Botanic Garden.  A very impressive and large holiday lights display set across a large portion of the grounds.  This is one of those rare places that legitimately feels magical to walk through.  The lights were immaculately set.... some interesting ones were animated like snow-lights falling off the trees.  Then one of my favorites was walking through a portion of the wooded area and seeing nearly the entire woods high in the treetops, twinkling all around... felt like being in some kinda fantasy setting.  I only wish they had more, but totally realize what an enormous undertaking it was to create what they did.  Very worth a visit.

Halloween in Salem 2017

December 05, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This was to be the last of my backlogged shoots to enter in here, but of course... I found something else.  Last week I attended "Winter Reimagined" over at Tower Hill Botanic Garden for their holiday lights show, so I'll have that up here before long.

This shoot was very, very casually done... I mean, I was barely looking through my viewfinder (or LCD in liveview for that matter) for the majority of these.  Literally I was walking through downtown and just quick shooting stuff as I seen it.  It's hard to just stop and set up a shot when everything (and everyone) are moving right along their merry way.  Still, was a fun night... met up with a couple friends I hadn't seen in a while along with walking down with my sister and brother in law.  Didn't seem as busy this year, though... and not as many costumes... very weird.  But anyway....

 


Fall Foliage Finale 2017 - Breakheart Reservation

November 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Almost all caught up with my season's adventures here.  One more with some quick snapshots downtown Salem, MA from Halloween night and I'll be set.  The foliage finale is typically my end til it warms up, but then sometimes I feel compelled to do snow shoots (if there's anything significant) and other times... random creative stuff... light painting's been a thought for a while... maybe.

So anyway, this was my last hurrah for Fall at Breakheart Reservation.  The day was gloomy and threatening rain all day, but it made for just the right kind of diffused light to get the colors popping pretty nice.  An enjoyable little hike to cap off the season.

 


Franconia Notch Run - Fall 2017

November 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Naturally this would be another delayed posting.  Made this trip last month at what was pretty much the height of the foliage season up in the White Mountains of NH.  Wasn't as vibrant as last year and ironically, I went at nearly the exact same time.  Regardless, it's always awesome up north in the Fall.  Despite a deep fog up on Cannon Mountain, I was able to wait it out and get a few decent shots up there anyway.  Aside from that hike, also did a run through the Flume.  Reasonably nice day overall.
