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.





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.

This slideshow is highlighting some of the images taken last night of the sunset at the Barcelona harbor in Westfield, New York. The slideshow has both the straight out of the camera image and the processed image out of nik software’s HDR efex. Some I feel are over processed, but I’m starting to like the look a little more each time I do it. The straight out of the camera image looks flat and just doesn’t have the pop that the HDR’s have but maybe I’m over doing the processing and getting to much pop, texture, contrast. What do you think? The barn image was also taken yesterday when we had such great clouds so I just included it along with the sunsets.





Barcelona Harbor Time-Laspe V.02

29 07 2011

This time-laspe has been improved by adding an exposure gradient filter to the lower half of all the 600+ images. This was done in Lightroom 3 which makes it very easy to do this correction with their synch function, all 600+ images corrected in minutes. I think this version is a lot better by brightening the foreground so that the activity can be seen in the harbor and along the shoreline.

Go to the list on the right and click on Barcelona lighthouse New York to see more images of the lighthouse.

This is may second attempt at a timelaspe sequence. This sunset at Barcelona Harbor and Lighthouse was shot July 13, 2011 over about 1.5 hours and over 650 individual images combined at 15 frames a second to give you a 34 second finished video. Look for the ducks swimming and the two boats docking after a day out fishing.

Critique : There’s a couple of glitches in the video cause by me playing with the timer controller. Still learning the controller, I think I have it figured out now and the next timelaspe should be better.
