shot in Maine, Goat Island Light might look like this.
Suedo Hopper or Gretchen Dow Simpson or so I would like to think. Wells Beach. dans le style d'un safari en Afrique. This is the one shot the whole Maine trip was about, it is much harder than I thought to find vernacluar beach architecture with the enormous number of "cottages" that have now displaced the "first growth" structures.
Another from Biddeford Pool
Wells Beach this AM.
This morning West Kenebunk, Maine. Faux platinium. Likely the star of the weekend.
Paris Hill, north and west and up, seeking snow
fell in love with this place in 1962 and still am...
Lots of lates nights to the GW bridge...
no stern man on the Isabella Grace.
WTF did this come from. Goose Rocks Beach, this afternoon.
The Christmas lights are on the lighthouse, cold, windy, dark. About 4:45 in the afternoon with the very wide 14mm f/2.8. More than several more.
As ABC used to say — up close and personal
Leave the light on
Port Clyde, September 14th, 2011. 5D Mk II, 50 f/1.8 Mk I, ISO 400, f/8, at 1/400. Again hit with Alien Skin Exposure and Nik Color Efex 4. Mustard yellow, French's Mustard, certainly not Dijon.
Printed 34161 from the September Peter Ralston workshop in Maine, along with a bunch of others to hang around the aerie. Did 34161 two different ways, liked them both. Interesting the difference in mood. Snaped from a lobster boat just before 8:00AM on a foggy Spetember 13th morning in Carver's Harbor on Vinalhaven. 5D Mk II, ISO 100, 310mm (100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS), f/5.6 at 1/800. Printed 12x18 on the Epson 4900 with the Imageprint RIP on Epson Exhibition Fiber. Post processing principly in Alien Skin Exposure 2 and Nik Color Efex 4. Framed 18x24, matted with Rising Museum Board cut on the Easterly SpeedMat. Stunning!
Penobscot Bay off Vinalhaven, The Reach in the fog.
Working through new George DeWolfe book (on paper actually) B&W Printing. Interesting also bought another of his books as an eBook, the eBook was twice the price of the paper one, delivered. Not much linkage between cost and price here.
Anyway, lots of new finishing techniques in this for me, especially the use of the history brush for sharpening and dodge and burn. Could be something here.
Lobster boats are a lot faster than i thought. Hauling ass accross West Penobscot Bay from North Haven to Rockland.
Last of the Maine posts — I think. Links to snaps are in the several older posts below.
In the first snap Peter Ralston is talking to a Vinalhaven lobster fisherman about his near tragic accident the day before. The man fishes alone without a sternman and the day before he was pulled over the side by a trap he was setting. The boat was in gear and motored off. He swam 45 minutes to a ledge where he was finally recused hours later. His boat, the Good 'Nuff, ran around on another ledge and is in the yard for repairs. Apparently one of the lucky, generally overboads perish and are rarely found.
The SmugGalleries all WIP.
Day 1 - Portland
Day 2 - St. George's Penninsula
Day 3 - Rockport Harbor
you get Maple Syrup. From Maine you get snaps. Yesterday, all day yesterday, on Penobscot Bay and the Islands. Foggy start then stunning light. More as the week goes on.
Need to turn in some snaps, click the snap below to see a gallery of them. The one below with the Fuji X100 the rest with the 5D Mk II.
Marshall Point Lighthouse, Port Clyde, ME. Off to a week photo workshop at Maine Media College in Rockport with Peter Ralston. This snap taken on the way up to Rockport. Maybe better ones by the end of the week. Fuji X100 — the blue is amazing, no filters on it either on the camera or post processed. Better light here.
