I got up at 2:30a on Sunday morning to shoot Nubble Light & The Milky Way with a couple of buddies who shoot. It was a great night, and the Milky Way was plainly visible with the naked eye! I want to be clear in saying that all of my photos are single shot photos. They are not multiple image shots, mixed together. I'm not knocking that process- it's indeed an art form. It's just not what I do. I shoot what I see. I don't create it. I witness it. That's why my photography is about.
For the photogs- here are my settings:
(Nikon D750, 20 sec exposure at f/1.8, ISO 800, using a Nikon 20mm fixed lens.)
Here's another shot from a different perspective. In photography- moving just a few feet away can help you see your subject completely differently, and give it a different feel. I guess the same can be said of life, huh?
The moon and I don't get along. I have yet to get a killer shot of it - but here's my latest attempt.
I love this image of the South End of Portsmouth NH, looking at the North Church, over the Marconi docks. Such a beautiful place on a beautiful night.
I shot this one morning last week - before I went to work. I got up about 40 minutes early just so I could get a chance to shoot. If I go too long without shooting something - I get kind of restless. People say it's crazy to get up at those hours. I think that if doing it gives me the chance to shoot something as beautiful as this - I think it's crazy not to.
Hope you like the pics!
Thanks for all of your support!
