Wildwood Stables is located in Acadia National Park and offers carriage rides during the warmer months of the year.  The nXnw2014 crew stopped by while driving the Park’s Loop Road after a dawn excursion near Otter Cliffs, while returning to Bar Harbor for breakfast. It’s a pretty setting, and among other things I was drawn to this […]

I took several images with the focus on the foreground leaves and the background fully blurred. Just before I stopped I decided to switch the focus to have most of the scene crisp with just the foreground blurred. And in the end that’s the version I like so much more. Fuji X-T1 Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 […]

I think it makes sense to start at the beginning and work backwards. I’ve got 2 friends – Justin Balog and Armando Martinez- who have a joint enterprise together called The Photo Frontier.They’re both available for hire as great photographers in their own right, but together they offer photo tours and adventures, books, tutorials, Lightroom […]

The Roseland Ballroom first opened in Philadelphia in 1917. It lasted all of two years before moving to a spot about a block away from this location in 1919, a refugee from Philly’s blue laws.  This location first opened in 1922 as an ice-skating rink, converted to a roller rink, and became the Roseland when […]

During the nXnw2014 Photo Jamboree we spent one early morning on a rocky beach in Acadia National Park near the Otter Cliffs.  They provide a great backdrop for the early morning light. While waiting for sunrise I focused straight out on  on the water and caught this scene. Available In My Galleries Here For a […]

I spent about an hour working on this image trying to get the colors right. I even worked on the image in 2 programs: Aperture and Capture One Pro 8, partly to test the programs in rendering color, partly to trina myself on the latter, and partly just to get one version that captured the […]

EDIT 6/5/17: “Film Styles for Capture One” has rebranded to 1Styles.pro. I have changed the links but otherwise the review is as originally presented. The gallery above shows three variants of the same image edited in Capture One 8 using the Film Styles for Capture One set of film presets available at the link.  I was approached […]

This was harder to create than I thought it should be, and that’s one of the reasons I’m posting it even though It’s not as compelling as I hoped it would be.  My X-T1 kept exposing for the leaves in the foreground which blew out the water and sky in the background.despite my attempts to […]

This shows the Bubbles, at Jordan Pond, Acadia National Park. The Bubbles are the twin pair of rounded large hills, or small mountains at the far end of the pond, which seems large enough to me to be called a Lake. After the nXnw crew’s travel day driving up the Maine coast from Massachusetts, this was […]

We are still working my way up the Maine coast on the first day on the nXnw 2014 trip, and as with yesterday’s image from Perkins Cove, I find myself less than overwhelmed with what I did that day. Was it the weather, the frst full day of  my cold, or something else? I’m not […]

Perkin’s Cove is a spot where lobstermen keep their boats, an enclosed little pond-sized body of water with easy access to the ocean. Perkin’s Cove is a lovely spot that I visited on a grey day, and left without getting any shots I truly loved. It’s not the location’s fault, or the weather. Some of […]

Available In My Galleries Here The next stop as I advance through my nXnw 2014 trip is the Nubble Point Lighthouse at Sohier Park in York, Maine. It was a very drab, grey and rainy day so my first thought, even that day, was that I would be not be rendering anything in color. But two […]

Available In My Galleries Here I’ve tentatively decided to spend the 1-2 weeks working chronologically through my trip to Acadia National Park as part of my friends’ annual nXnw get-together. That doesn’t mean I will literally do every decent image in order, but I do want to hit one image from every location in the […]

Available In My Galleries Here Acadia National Park comprises most of Mount Desert Island in Maine. I just spent about 4 days there with 9 other great friends — photographers all — on our annual nXnw photo trip. This was taken during our last morning in the Park 2 days ago, at the Thunder Hole location […]
