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.

It’s getting to be the end of Cherry season here in Chautauqua County New York. I figured I would preserve the harvest is my way, with a photograph rather than canning or freezing. The taste isn’t as fresh but they should last longer.

This was produced with a single Medium Softbox (24×36″) coming in from the rear left side of the image, a black card in front of the softbox to knock down the light spill on the table and bowl, a white foamcore fill card in the front right. The image was finished in Lightroom and Onone Photoshop plugins.

Three versions of a small product studio shot of a pair of Xmas tree shaped wine bottles from a local winery in Northeast P.A. called Arrowhead Winery on Rt 20.

 

The bottles where placed on a table in front of white background paper and lite with two 30×40 soft boxes, one on each side of the bottle towards the back illuminating the back edges and contents of the bottle. Then I placed two 30×40 white foam core boards in front of the subjects to reflect lights back onto the lettering and front of the bottles. I bracketed the exposures and during the post processing I pulled one of the underexposed images and used the underexposed sides of the bottles and combined the proper exposure of the bottles and the proper exposure of the sides into one combined exposure in PhotoshopCC.

I used fake snow to surround the bottles and add a bit of seasonal element to the foreground image.

Backgrounds:

The color lights where produced with Xmas lights hanging from a bar in the studio with the camera out of focus.

Snow covered evergreens was a stock shot I had on file

The red and yellow streaks where produced with a preset from OnOne enhance.

The bottles and snow where cut out of the studio background using the pen tool in PhotoshopCC. With the background removed it was easy to experiment with different backgrounds.

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.
