Family Group Portraiture – Commercial Photographer, Jamestown, Chautauqua County New York

9 08 2015

I’m not a portrait photographer usually. Usually I spend my time creating images of inanimate objects, Architecture, products and landscapes. A close friend asked me to come up with something special when his kids gathered for fathers day this year. I made an image of each family group separately while standing in the yard of their cottage. Once I had an image of each group I removed the background so that just the people where left. Once that was done I could move the groupings on to any background I would like too. This is what I ended up doing.

Scenic Photography in Chautauqua County N.Y.

Barcelona Harbor and lighthouse in Westfield N.Y., Chautauqua County along Lake Erie.

This image was captured on July 3, 2014. The Canon 5D markIII with the 24-70mm 2.8L was setup on a really right stuff nodal slide so that the camera pivoted around the nodal point of the lens, which allows the exposures to line up better when they are stitched together in photoshop. This images is make up of 21 exposures. That’s 3 exposures at each of 7 camera positions. The 3 exposures where taken into efexpro HDR soft for the High dynamic Range processing. After each of the set of 3 exposures are processed the resulting 7 files are taken into photoshop so that the stitching could be preformed. Once photoshop does it’s thing the resulting pano is fine tuned in both photoshop and lightroom.

I spent a couple of hours walking around the Panama Rocks nature preserve in Panama New York. Equipment used was the Canon 5D mark iii and a Really Right Stuff nodal bracket for the panoramas shot during my little hike. Panama Rocks is a private nature preserve with about a mile of hiking trail taking you through some interesting rock out croppings and forested area. Take a tripod if your planning a photo trip to the rocks.

Photography by Kurt A. Moore, Westfield, Chautauqua County N.Y.

These two panoramic images where made on March 24, 2013. Using a Canon 5D Mark iii and a Canon 24-70 2.8L at 42mm. This is a 5 position HDR pano using 4 of the 7 bracketed exposures that I took at the time, that means that I combined 20 exposures 4 at each camera position and then took the resulting 5 images into Photoshop and merged them into a pano. Then I did a little enhancement in both photoshop and Lightroom to come up with what you see here.





Another ad for a local brewery – self assigned photoshop exercise

11 01 2012

This is a self assigned photoshop exercise using a couple of images I already had on hand. The beer bottle label on the lighthouse is from the semi truck post made yesterday  and the Barcelona lighthouse and  harbor is a sunset panorama of the Barcelona lighthouse and harbor in Westfield N.Y. on Lake Erie is from 2010. The label was made to fit the lighthouse using the free transform tool in PS5. Some density control, contrast adjustment, and selective density control with the layers mask and bush tool was used to make the label appear that it is painted on the lighthouse.

If you have the opportunity to try some of Southern Tier Brewery’s offerings you should try it out.

Westfield, New York

These two images were taken on Aug 23rd in Westfield New York. They are taken from Hardscrabble Rd over looking Noble Winery and Lake Erie. The smaller image is a 3 frame bracket and HDR conversion. The panorama is made up of a total of 24 images. 8 camera positions to make up the pano with 3 frame bracket at each camera position making a total of 24 frames. Each group of 3 frames were taken into HDR efex Pro and after I added the same settings to each group the 8 resulting images were taken into PS5 to do the pano stitching. The final pano once flattened was almost 500 megs in size.
