I hit up Caribou and Presque Isle today, just cuz an met up with my friend, Kasey for lunch. On the drive home I decided to pull over and take a few pictures.
My next stop! Lupins on the side of the road.
After the lupins, I made a quick pit stop at an abandoned building for a few snaps.
Old Trucks and even older Fire Trucks was the next stop on the side of the road. I have myself less than 10 mins to shoot what I wanted. Forces me to be innovated and an economy of shots!
My last stop was a few pictures of an old red barn in Van Buren.
I got to spend the 4th of July working, and then taking pictures. Stonington had fun for the 4th – food on the docks, and fireworks… I met Shannon Stapleton, a photographer who works for Reuters on the dock. We talked photography and the Island.
This wonderful rainbow appears often over the water if its been foggy and clears or raining because of the way the sun catches the water crystals in the air.
The theme this year was: PIRATES!
I’ve been working on blur and focus – my new camera works different my old one – finding that balance has been interesting.
Light, shadows, colors and details.
I have a thing for doors. Like this one.
I have never taken pictures of fireworks before. So I googled. I do not have a trigger bulb release. I had to use a 2 second delay with means I had to time the shots out really well. Or, leave it to luck. I think it was 50/50
I played around with zooming in and out – the challenge in that is – focus.
