August 2012

In early August 2012 I spent the long week-end on Campobello Island with a dozen or so other members of the Kennebecasis Valley Camera Club. The morning I left on the ferry to Deer Island the fog was rolling in slowly covering the coast. I took four images with the expressed purpose of combining them in Photoshop as a panoramic image. This is the result. Kind of makes you feel like you are there beside me doesn't it?

Assorted Photos

I have a few photographs from this month but most are some from the past. The last photograph is not exactly as it should be. I took some artistic license with the placement of one rather important object while practicing my Photoshop skills.

The new Irving Office Tower near Kings Square.

Street Art on Grannan St.

Evening Grosbeaks
Panning photo on King Street.

Photoshop fun over the Hammond River.

Saint John to Digby Sailboat Race.

Watch Out!!!

When photographing candid photos, some call it street photography, I strive to capture a moment in time that not only speaks to me but also speaks to other viewers of my images.

To capture this scene I took two separate images. I then combined these two views into a single image in Photoshop. The reason for taking two separate images and not just a single image was because from where I was standing, and the lens I was using, I could not get the entire field of view in a single image. I chose instead to zoom in and take two images that when they were combined would contain the exact field of view I wanted but with much higher resolution and containing more detail than I could otherwise capture. I made my first two images then as I started to move to a better location one of the men stood up. That is the way it is with street photography. Always be prepared to capture the moment as soon as you see it. Do not wait to get to a better point of view because more often than not something will change and the moment will be lost forever.
