Fog fractals at Ship Harbor
This is not a double exposure or a Photoshop trick- still tricks my eye when I look at this though. Taken during a workshop in Acadia a couple weeks ago, I was exalting the mystery of photographing in fog when the sky cleared up enough to let a window of texture through. The patterns in the clouds look like spruce tree tops though, above the spruce tops themselves. So weird! Love it when a plan comes together. Have a good one!

Daisy buds pattern against my neighbors driveway.
One of the things to see looking out the office window. I kept looking at this pattern the other day at twilight. Reminded me of birds on telephone lines kind of thing. There is no app that can replace a nice lens- 
Have a wicked good one.

Maine spring fog in Acadia.
There's something about the spring fog here that's nice. The fog kind of provides an introspective feeling for me that gives me the opportunity to get into my head. The fog is the last of the quiet of the spring before the summer crazy and hot sets in. Or something like that. -One of our dogs died last week after being sick for a long while now. It was incredibly sad and we are getting over it slowly. It was a relief in one way but really a wicked bummer, our pets are such an important part of our lives. So, here's to Andre.

Coast Guard Beach Cape Cod winter parking.
I'll be doing a jibba-jabba tomorrow night @6:30(4/21/15) at the Northeast Harbor Library for the MDI Photo Club regarding all things photography as I see them. Please bring plenty of snick snacks, or just yourselves, unless you could care less about what I have to think about photography. Should be fun though- whenever I can't remember a word I turn and twerk. So there's that. Have a good one!

Erosion.
Cape Cod near Provincetown at Herring Cove. The Cape is in a constant state of change where winter storms sweep entire sections of beach and dunes away, not necessarily permanently away maybe just down the coast a bit. A crazy example of this change is that they've had to move a lighthouse back from the crumbling edge of the dunes, not far from here, a couple different times to keep it from falling into the sea. When I made this picture it felt like my favorite from the trip, after the fact in hindsight the subject of erosion would have been a perfect theme to search out. Next time. And it was fantastic to see my folks. Have a good one!

I would like Trey's drone and this is what I want to do with it: I'm a sternman on a lobster boat in Maine USA- I make tons of photography of sunrises, seascapes, other boats, our boat, etc. I want to (1.) chase the boat from overhead for a video shot and (2.) photograph other boats in the harbor from above and various otherwise difficult to achieve angles. These images would sell like cheap delicious dumplings to a starved office of New York bond traders. I'll give you at least 5 percent on all future income of said images if it's necessary to sweeten the deal. As well as at least 100 delicious dumplings. Thank you, and have a nice day.

Goose Cove at a rolling boil.
From last Thursday- from the cove that I call home. This, for all you temperate climate living/ and or inland living folk- is the sea smoke. I've seen sea smoke in September but usually it's most remarkable when hell has actually finally frozen over= January-March around here=Maine,Usa. It's when the air temp drops so quickly that the entire ocean is shocked into giving up and boiling away out of fear= which is bad, though which also makes for really interesting photography yet your fingers won't like it one bit. And that's all I have to say about that, for now.

Jordan Stream fall color.
Taking a little break from the tool pictures and looking back through some of this years foliage images. This one was from an afternoon walk along Jordan Stream in Acadia with Sophie. It was one of those perfect days for autumn color photography- light rain making the leaves all wet and saturated with color, enough wind to make a carpet of fallen leaves and keep them spinning down from the canopy. And the stream was running loud. Topped off by cappuccino and pop overs at the Jordan Pond House sitting next to the fire made a great end to the day. Have a good one!

Stanley #4 plane.

I used to live down the street from the Hulls Cove shop and went there many times if not to get something necessary then to just browse and wonder what that thing on the shelf is etc. One of the very few stores I enjoy shopping in. So you guys know that I've been working on learning studio lighting recently and It smacked me like a strong north wind that what an amazing subject would be these old tools that Skip has over at the Tool Barn.

The character of these old rugged tools that built New England is evident in the scars of repeated use nearly but not quite obliterating the names of the owners etched into the cold steel. (That's my artist's' freeking statement if there needs to be) I just think they have really viscerally strong character and are like the tangible ghosts of the workers that built this whole incredible place.

Moss and granite diorama
Lugged a 60 pound chunk of pink granite covered in moss from the backyard to my studio in order to experiment with this new light modifier freshly delivered from B+H Photo- a Rogue grid spot. Makes for super contrasty light beams in either 45 degrees, 25 or 16. The way I ended up going with this look was to kind of feel like it was a museum exhibit and lit in such that way. That's what I have to say about this. Have a good one!

Fall flowers with watering can and chair.
More experiments in trying to learn studio lighting. 24" Softbox and 24mm tilt shift. Tabletop set so everything was up real high including the cam. Lot's of photoshop.

2.5 seconds at Little Hunter Beach.
This is my day 3 entry for the black and white challenge put forth to me by Stuart Taylor. Steve-Maxx Landeros also stuck it to me with the challenge by saying to do it in color, so I'm alternating days. The challenge I added to myself was to make new work everyday= that's the toughest one. So yesterday I was out in the park photographing like mad because it was one of those absolutely amazing days when everything was looking just amazing- it was also looking like it was ready to transition as well to the end of the season and there was the prescient feeling that all this would soon be gone, so I was in a big rush. Heading back out there in a minute. Now to nominate the next victim in the 5 day b+w challenge: you're up Jimmy Denham make 5 days of b+w's and nominate 5 photographers to do the same. Good luck. #5dayblackandwhitechallenge

Sophies Lemon Cucumbers.
Had the idea for a photo project last week that would involve a flash, the flash that I'd been borrowing had to go home a while back- so after something resembling an impulsive moment, the box from B+H arrived yesterday with a speed light and transmitter and umbrella and stand and a soft box and a sand bag. After taking an hour or so just trying to figure out how to make it talk to each other there was finally some time to experiment with light shaping. Good times and lot's to learn.

The Jessup Trail in autumn in Acadia.
This is a really gorgeous spot in Great Meadow that I've been photographing for- well ever since I've been making photographs. Grover the dog and I used to walk through here almost every morning before work when he was just a pup. It looks great in every season but especially when the colors go amber in the fall and the trees drop leaves on the trail. Also it's one of the few images on the Apple Tv screen saver, which I kick myself over every time it flashes by- because it's not mine- but I do have images on the Google Chromecast so there's that. Whatever. In other news... I'm getting married this weekend! Woah! So there's That! 
Have a good one!

The Big Heath.
Aptly named, because it's big, and it's a heath. It's across the street from the Wonderland and Ships Harbor trails over on the backside and once you get through the treeline because there is no real path to there- you are in another world. The whole place is springy underfoot cause it's like a giant floating peat bog, which is only a little disconcerting. Have a good one! Acadia in fall.

Black spruce heath.
Near Wonderland and Ship Harbor this spot is like a little nome forest with pitcher plants and gorgeous scarlet blueberry foliage rimmed by the black spruce. It's just a little clearing off the road, one that makes you think- should I go back and make that photo? You know the feeling.

Silver hayscented fern at Sieur du Mont.
There's something about the hayscented ferns that looks fantastic (in my opinion) in black and white. Found this patch the other day- it was fading from autumns influence with some of the ferns almost white. Have another nice day!

Jesup Path birches and autumn color.
Yesterday was a perfect day to photograph fall out in Acadia- overcast and foggy with a gloss of mist covering the foliage. Good times! Happy October and have a nice day everybody.

Ocean ripples with fog.
Well I went to photograph a sweet looking bank of clouds that was rolling in this afternoon, then right when I was about to set up I was asked to do an important errand- by the time I came back the sky had dried up to blue. So I used that initiative to have a beer and work on old images.

The Mitchell Marsh.
I've been eyeing this little pull-off along the road just up the way, there also seemed to be an old trail into the woods there. The other day while showing Jim Nicholson around we decided to go check it out. Not much of a trail but it leads to this really nice looking place- The Mitchell Marsh over in Tremont. Jims sneakers were totally mudded up, which I felt a little guilty about, but it was worth finding. I'll be back to here. Have a good one!

Midday highlights at Latty Cove, Maine.
Got to hang out with Jim Nickelson (http://www.jimnickelson.com) of Camden Maine yesterday afternoon- he's a fantastically progressive fine art photographer who is figuratively and literally shooting for the stars, so we had some interesting conversations regarding style and motivation and goals etc. Went for a walk along a backside beach and although the light was harsh I found an interesting concept to explore by exposing for the harsh highlights and crushing the rest of the environment to black. Keeping on trying to find new ways to play an old scene. And owing much of the inspiration to Jim for making me take some time to get out there!

Acadia Coast off Thunder Hole
Making a batch of prints to refill the que at Spruce and Gussy in Bar Harbor,  really Michelle Sprague and Patricia Savoie I'm doing it now! Been pretty busy lately- reads= flat out, so there's been some neglected responsibilities. And forget about the grass- too long to mow, ever again. They were asking for some color so in going through my color prints I found this oldie- made on the first day I went shooting with my 24 tilt shift which has become (I'll say it again, as I've said it so many times before) really the only lens I want to have on my camera. Oh how I love that sweet sweet lens! Have a good one! #Acadia   #acadianationalpark   #tiltshift   #tiltshiftphotography   #Maine   #coastofmaine   #haveaniceday

Fog fractals at Ship Harbor
This is not a double exposure or a Photoshop trick- still tricks my eye when I look at this though. Taken during a workshop in Acadia a couple weeks ago, I was exalting the mystery of photographing in fog when the sky cleared up enough to let a window of texture through. The patterns in the clouds look like spruce tree tops though, above the spruce tops themselves. So weird! Love it when a plan comes together. Have a good one!

Tessellated leaf 2
Sophie told me that this is a phycus leaf. She said that she found it outside after it had spent this past last winter out there. That most likely had something to do with the desiccated condition that it shows. Makes me want to put all kinds of plant matter out for the next winter to see what happens! In other news- my new replacement iPhone arrived this afternoon only 22 hours after being shipped from Texas, always blows me away to think how do they do that! Have a good one folksters.

Tessellated leaf 
Sophie is a gardener so often she'll have really cool specimens of interesting things that would look great in a photograph. This leaf has been laying around my desk for a month or so now and today I had time and energy enough to photograph it. Oh man is this thing cool! Photographed it in a number of ways on black and on white. One more thing- I usually shoot wide with my 24 tilt shift or 17-40 f/4 or 40 or 50, but my least used yet most amazing 100 2.8 macro IS always blows me away and was worth it's weight in pixels when I used it on a family photoshoot in Acadia last week. Sometimes I'm tempted to get rid of it but for the 5 or 6 hours a year that it's on my camera it really is an amazing lens and I would massively regret not having it then. #sharplensesareawesome   #100mmmacro   #macro   #blackandwhitephotography  +Black and White Fine Art PhotographyGall... more »
