Flowers at Longwood

Flowers at Longwood

The flowers are always in bloom at Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, PA). These photos are not true macro, since the max reproduction ratio here is 1:4. All these images were taken with the Canon 24-105 f/4 L; this lens has pretty close focusing distance, which gives it a decent macro feel.. The first two photos…

Stemmers Run Sunset

IMG_6405-2

These pilings are alongside a boat ramp on Maryland’s eastern shore, in the Stemmers Run area. This was shot using the Big Stopper (10-stop) ND filter. There were a few different types of clouds overhead, some thick, dark, others light and streaked – I figured long exposure would work best for this spot since I’d…

Inner Harbor Sunset

Inner Harbor Sunset

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor has plenty of joggers and dog walkers out during the summer sunsets, which is another thing I love about shooting long exposures – people rarely show up in my shots. Prints of these will be soon made available for purchase on my Etsy shop – check back for availability. Specs for featured…

East Coast Stars

I compiled a time-lapse video using the majority of the star photos I’ve taken over the last two years, hence ‘East Coast Stars’. I used 3670+ individual photos for this video, made in Adobe Premiere CC. I had to scale down my photos to make them fit into a full HD 1080 resolution video, maybe…

Conrad’s Ruth Villa

Conrad's Ruth Villa

I took this photo at Conrad’s Ruth Villa, a waterfront park and venue, in Middle River, Maryland. I used a few different filters for this photo: my circular polarizer to cut the reflection on top of the water, and to make the blue in the sky darker; ‘The Big Stopper’ 10-stop ND filter allowed for…

Baltimore’s Key Bridge

Key Bridge

This is a shot of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge that I took in August of 2013, when I was just getting started with long exposure seascapes. This photo is the HDR composite of five different photos, each of slightly varying exposures. I came across this photo recently and decided that I needed to re-edit…

Stars Over Acadia

Camping under Milky Way

The stars over Acadia National Park were the best I’ve viewed yet, it sure beat Baltimore’s night sky. I was really lucky last week to get three good nights of clear skies with no moon light. I took advantage of it and shot some star photos when I could. The sun rises so early in…

Acadia Seascapes

IMG_0865-Edit-Edit

Acadia National Park is an awesome place for shooting seascape scenes. While camping there for a week I was able to get in a few different long exposure shots as the cold blue waves crashed in on the rocky coast. Needless to say I’m like a kid in a candy shop shooting Acadia seascapes. All…

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

IMG_0461-Edit

I was able to shoot twice at the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse in Acadia National Park (Maine) this past week. Both times were at sunset, which lends to the spot you can climb down to for this vantage point. This lighthouse was built and first lit in 1858. You can only see the sun setting…
