Finally Something New

Nikon D7500, 55.0-200.0mm @82.0mm, f/16, ISO 250

I was finally able to get out and take some photographs and try a few new things. The picture above is from the Monocacy River, which is by where I live. I had recently purchased a 10 stop ND filter and was finally able to try it out. The photograph is actually a composite of two photographs. The upper part was taken at an exposure of 1/100 sec to freeze the leaves on the trees as it was windy. The lower, water and tree trunk, were taken at an exposure of 8 seconds to blur the water. I then blended the two in Photoshop to get the final image. This was the first time I blended two photographs.

Cooperage

Kodak Six-20 Brownie Target Hawkeye, “Film”,

In a previous post, Something Different, I had posted about taking pictures with some old film cameras that I had inherited from family members. Today’s post is from one of those cameras, a Six-20 Brownie Target Hawkeye Box camera produced in the 1940’s. I took this in April and just got the developed film back this week. While not the greatest picture, I am happy that it actually worked. I have one more roll of 620 film, and am deciding whether I want to take more pictures with this camera or the Kodak Tourist II.

Schoodic Point

Nikon D60, 18-140mm @ 18mm, 1/320 sec, f/9.0, ISO 400

Had hoped to post a photograph that I took with my phone earlier this week, but after looking at it on the computer I did not get the same feeling I had when I took it. So back to Maine. This is from Schoodic Point, about the same area as the picture on the front of my blog. I probably said this before, but I took a lot of photographs on that trip, many of which I haven’t had time to look at. Enjoy!
Happy Mothers Day!

Sunrise Acadia NP

Nikon D60, 18.0-140.0mm @ 35mm, 1/400 sec, f10, ISO 20

Yet, another photograph from Acadia National Park from our family vacation in 2017. This one is from Cadillac Mountain and it was taken after sunrise, 8:10 am, and was looking easterly. You can see that Egg Rock Lighthouse and Schoodic Point are directly in front. I like how the grass is back lit and while I missed the golden hour, there is still an overall warm tone to the photograph. I hope to get back there some day and actually plan out my photographs, maybe be on Cadillac Mountain when the sun does come up. Thanks for visiting my blog.
