Just The Stems

I toyed with various lighting approaches for the Peruvian Lilies and choose the penlight hidden among the stems.

NYC Skyline

Midtown Manhattan, taken from the New Jersey side of the Hudson River atop the Palisades. It was a chilly, misty evening and that’s what accounts for the softness of the image. On the riverfront is the USS Intrepid, a WWII era aircraft carrier. Now it’s a museum and popular tourist attraction.

Fruit & Oil

Apples in a bottle of olive oil. I built a shadow box using my MacBook, 2 large pieces of black construction paper, and some tape. I managed the amount of available light by changing the angle of the laptop display. I really like the way the light enters from the rear. I’m not very satisfied with the composure because it’s crooked. Shot with a Canon 50D and EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM, 34mm, F/2.8, 1/13 sec.

A walk along the beach on a cold, windy, but sunny February afternoon. The advantage of a winter walk means no crowds.
