This year, fireworks were launched from a barge off Dysarts Marina (it looks as if the boat is on fire!) and were sponsored by Gilley’s Head of the Harbor Restaurant along with several donors to make it happen! This was the view from my house, so I set up the camera and tripod and hoped for good weather! It was my first time shooting fireworks and it wasn’t easy manually focusing on a moving subject in the dark but some of these came out pretty well.

Color and Depth of Field…

 

 

This photo was taken at the Gifted Hand show a couple years back in Ellsworth, Maine. I bought some of the Sister’s Soaps but it was the amazing color that caught my eye!

I love the detail in the bee’s “fur”!

Color, Lighting, Composition and Depth of Field…

Sometimes it’s as much about the depth of field, lighting and color, for me, as it is the entire composition or subject. I like this shallow depth of field combined with the lighting which allowed me to achieve some pretty interesting bokeh! This was from a craft fair in Ellsworth, Maine last year and this was the Lucky Dog Gallery display.

Got Bokeh?!

This is the Rosa Rugosa bush (flowers not present in this photo) and the red bud you see are rose hipsBokeh is a photographic term for the desired quality of the blurred section of a photograph (the highlighted out of focus circles)

I LOVE being in Portland right now but I do so miss waking up and grabbing my camera to capture the amazing sunrises in Southwest Harbor! These are from my archives…
