Quick as a Wink ;-)

To keep it simple the trick is to keep a long exposure. But that would work in low-light conditions so adjust the shutter accordingly. You cannot predict when the next lightning will strike and its so quick that you can’t keep your hand on the shutter and coincide your click with it. But what happens […]

Franconia Notch – The Basin

After a fun time photographing in the Flume Gorge, we went to The Basin. There is no actual trail but  a paved path to this natural fall. Thousands of years of rushing water has eroded the rock into a smooth, circular cave-like formation. We spent a good 1 hour over here. The image above is the […]

Franconia Notch – Flume Gorge

Things don’t always go as per plan. Mine didn’t go well either. A friend and I planned for some night photography, mainly for the milky-way and the star trails in the White Mountains Area. We planned it 3 weeks in advance and when the day came to head out we had intense overcast and chance […]

Jersey Shores

The New Jersey Shore line is a little over 200 miles of coastline spanning from Sandy Hook all the way to Cape May in the south. I have visited and photographed most part of the shoreline. My favorite being the Sandy Hook and Cape May point. Its a popular vacation destination on the East Coast. […]

Let there be NATURAL LIGHT !

One of the most important rule I have learnt about landscape photography is to capture the right kind of light. Just like any other rookie, initially I scouted for locations and created images. Not that it is wrong to do that, a great location makes a huge difference. The problem comes when you travel to […]

Beach Abstracts

Recently I have been trying some minimalism abstract coastal shots. I have mostly in these case used a 70-300 Nikor VR lens VR. For these shots I had to isolate the subject from the rest of the scene, hence the telephoto lens. Another reason is that since I am playing with waves, its important that I keep […]

Back to Sandy Hook ..

In my last post I said that I am kinda bored of going back to Sandy Hook beaches again and again. It still holds true but I did make a recent visit again. The problem of going to the same spot again and again is that you eventually run out of compositions. All you can […]

Ocean Grove, NJ

I hate to say it but I’m kinda bored of Sandy Hook beaches now. I have over 10 unique images from there and wanted a change. So, I logged on to Google Maps and started some prelim scouting of the Jersey beaches. The closest one which I have not seen was Ocean Grove. I noticed […]

My Thoughts on HDR

Some of my images (very few) sometimes get confused for HDR image, in the sense of having a Surreal Effect to them. Here are my thoughts on the technique. Essentially the concept of HDR is to capture more dynamic range of light. The Camera captures 5 to 6 stops less than what a human eye […]
