Fog on Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine Fog on Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine
I spent the first hour of daylight (if you call it that) on Cadillac Mountain this day in fog so thick that I feared getting lost. Giving up, I began my descent on the mountain to be greeted by this sight. This is an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image.

Sunrise at Otter Cliff, Acadia National Park, Maine Sunrise at Otter Cliff, Acadia National Park, Maine
A beautiful sunrise at Otter Cliff, Acadia National Park, Maine. Unfortunately, this scene did not last long. The sun quickly rose through the narrow opening under those clouds to produce flat cloud-diffused light.

Perseid Meteor Shower over Island Pond, ME Perseid Meteor Shower over Island Pond, ME
A clear, dark sky and a calm lake (Island Pond in northern Maine) make an ideal setting for shooting the annual Perseid meteor shower. I usually figure 30 seconds as my tolerance for avoiding star trails in 14mm photos. This exposure duration is long enough to catch a meteorite in most images during this active shower.

Rocky Brook Falls, T15 R9, Maine Rocky Brook Falls, T15 R9, Maine
Look for leading lines in your foreground. In this photo, I used the lines of the rock to draw the viewer's eye to the far-brighter falls.

Custom Sleigh Bed Picture Custom Sleigh Bed Picture
This custom sleigh bed product photo was taken for a small custom furniture maker.
 
This shoot presented several big challenges. One was the over-powering light from the large windows. To resolve this problem, a late-in-the-day time was chosen for the shoot. Blinds were pulled to eliminate outdoor distractions. Interior light was from a Canon Speedlite 580EX II fired into a large umbrella.
 
The next big challenge was the small amount of space available to work in - about 14'x14'. I used the widest rectilinear lens available - the Canon EF 14mm L II. To keep the lines running parallel to the image frame border, a level camera position was used.
 
Position in the room was such that the headboard background would be as clean as possible - to show the curve of the headboard.

The fall-colored leaves look very high up in this picture. The perspective from a 14mm lens from the ground make these Hickory trees look much taller than they really are.

Of course, the clouds are more attractive than the pasture.

The clouds in the night sky are being lit by the rising moon. What appears to be a setting sun is light from a nearby town. When shooting a subject with a solid black or white border, frame the shot at this border edge. Then use Photoshop to extend the black or white side as much as you desire.
