Below is a gallery of images I took an a recent trip to Acadia National Park. Went on a workshop with Tony Sweet and Susan Milestone, my go to workshop people. It was a very good trip and the color was very good! I was a little less overwhelmed by the scale and beauty of Acadia this time, still magnificent, just could focus a little more on capturing the beauty of the place. Enjoy viewing, I certainly had a good time making these images!
Lately I have been photographing the mantis in the garden, usually can find at least 6 or more at any time. Equipment: Nikon D850 with a 70-200mm, sometimes with a Canon 500D close up filter sometimes not. Most images are shot pretty wide open (f/4.0 or so) using focus stacking and processing the stack in Helicon Focus. That way I can get much more of the mantis in focus while keeping the background very soft. Click on thumbnails below to view the Gallery…
Here’s a version with a bit more color added to the sky:
May you all have a healthy, happy Holiday Season…and share your joy with as many people as possible. The star was created in camera by doing a 10 shot multiple exposure, zooming a little between each exposure. You can click on the image above to view a larger version.
