This is the Little Schuylkill river taken in Port Clinton, PA. You know you’ve been in Southeaster PA a long time if you can spell Schuylkill without looking it up. This is a 3 exposure HDR created with a 10-stop Neutral Density filter to give a long shutter time to blur the water movement. Canon [...]
Isn’t this positively evil? It looks like something from a horror movie. It’s really a very thin ice formation hanging over a small creek. I enhanced the colors with HDR. A contribution to Macro Monday Canon EOS 7D (105mm, f/8, 1/15 sec, ISO400)
Philly photographer extraordinaire, Scott Fredrick, uses long exposures to make exquisite images, check out his site. Do it, just not right now His work inspired me to supplement my Neutral Density filter collection with a 10-stop filter. If you’re not familiar, neutral density filters reduce the amount of light exposed to the sensor, thereby allowing [...]
I drive past this farm field at least 20 times per week. If memory serves me correctly, the crops alternates between corn, winter wheat, and soybeans. As this year’s soybean crop senses the diminishing light, the leaves turn to gold, which seem to really pop in the late afternoon light. I hope it’s pure gold [...]
One of the many stops along the Rehoboth boardwalk offering yummies. I took this early in the morning before the masses arose. A contribution to signs, signs.
Happy (I can’t believe it’s ) August ! A double-shot peace shot, Midweek Blues and Random Hearts (check the rock in the water in the foreground, towards the right) from Peace Valley Park.
I saw this car while walking around the Doylestown Car show. I do not recall seeing a Triumph Italia 2000 before, I really like the color and the decreasing size of the zero’s in the 2000. Nice looking car.
A shot from the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk early in the morning. I added HDR to pump up the colors. They have great candy, but my favorite salt water taffy is still Shrivers. A contribution to signs, signs.
I shot this around 6:20 this morning. I love to shoot the sunrise at the beach, but I’m not always inspired to get up early, especially on vacation. Scott Fredrick’s post from yesterday was just the kick in the pants I needed. I went with a wide angle lens. Great idea, except I need to [...]
I wandered up to Peace Valley Park the other evening around sunset – it was a typical warm Summer night, hot an humid (kinda hard to believe this was taken at ~8:50PM). I caught some nice cloud reflections. This is a 3-exposure HDR if you’re interested in those types of details. A contribution to Weekend [...]
I forget which cellblock this was taken, near death row at ESP. I liked the dripping, creepy feel. This was lighted naturally, no flash. A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White, 6-July-2012. I promise, I’m almost done with ESP.
I thought these exposed beams at Eastern State Penitentary looked really cool. I first applied HDR processing, then converted to monochrome.
This lone table sites inside a cell at Eastern State Penitentary. I liked the lighting. A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White, 29-June-2012
I thought the texture of the paint as I looked down the hallway at ESP. HDR applied.
This cellblock at ESP had rows of doors stacked up. You guys sick of these yet? I’m coming close to the end, I promise. Canon EOS 7D (10mm, f/0, 0 sec, ISO100)
A 3-exposure HDR of Al Capone’s cell at Eastern State Penitentary. I guess you guys are getting sick of these, eh?
A look inside of one of the cells at Eastern State Penitentary, comfy, eh?
This is the entrance to the hospital at Eastern State Penitentary. I thought the cross made for a nice touch. I’m torn between this image and dots as my favorite from this series. Submitted for Macro Monday
Another 3-exposure HDR of the inside of one of the cells at Eastern State Penitentary. Each room has two doors, the second one lead to an outside exercise area enclosed with 10′ (3M) walls. Isolation was thought to be the key to redemption.
This is the control panel to open the cell doors on death row at Eastern State Penitentary. The black label describes the sequence of events to open and lock the doors. A contribution to signs, signs.
The door of cell 65 at Eastern State Penitentary. The door slides to the side to reveal a private cell, which I will be showing you samples of in coming posts. I created this by merging 3 images into a single HDR using HDR Efex Pro. I was shooting from a monopod which caused a [...]
I visited Eastern State Penitentiary the other day. My kind of place. Creep, old, decaying and full of history. It was the first penitentiary of it’s kind with a center hub and spokes of cellblocks radiating outward. Inmates repented for their crimes while in solitary confinement. They typically got 30 minutes outside of their cells [...]
I paid a visit to a local road construction site to check on the progress. I thought the green rebar arches looked cool against the blue sky. I used a circular polarizer on my lens and I amped up the colors with HDR, mouseover the image for EXIF data. A contribution to Macro Monday and UE [...]
