Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens Sample Pictures
Storm Clouds over Island Pond, ME Storm Clouds over Island Pond, ME
An impressive line of storm clouds reflect in the still Island Pond in northern Maine. There are a huge number of compositions available in this scene (I captured many of them), but what one of the aspects I like about this particular composition is the clump of taller trees silhouetted in front of the higher clouds with balance gained from the lower, more-distant trees and clouds.
 
24mm  f/8.0  1/80s  ISO 100
Kennebunkport Rowboat Kennebunkport Rowboat
While the girls waited in the lines in beautful Kennebunkport, Maine's shops, I explored the lines in the harbor. In this case, the primary lines were from a rowboat its rope. The goal with this composition was to bring the viewer's eye to the purple rope attached to the bow of the boat while maintaining an overall balance to the image.
 
135mm  f/8.0  1/160s  ISO 100
Cornfield Sunset Cornfield Sunset
While cornfields are plentiful in many areas, making a good sunset picture with them is a bit more challenging. Finding a field at a higher elevation that the western horizon is a good start. Then finding the right cornstalks to include in the image is the next challenge. Then position the sun to peak through the stalks just as it reaches the horizon.
 
40mm  f/8.0  1/320s  ISO 200
PA Sugar Maple in Red PA Sugar Maple in Red
I usually schedule a photo trip during the peak fall leaf viewing season, but on this particular year, I decided to shoot the local color. The Pennsylvania sugar maple trees are perhaps second to none in their spectacular beauty. There is nothing complicated about this particular composition, but I tried to work the clumps of leaves into the frame in a pleasing way.
 
100mm  f/8.0  1/200s  ISO 100
New Driver New Driver
A new driver concentrates on her task. This picture required the use of the Canon Rebel T4i's Vari-Angle LCD. To get this framing required the camera to be placed tight against the pasenger-side A-pillar of this compact car. With the LCD reversed, I was able to frame and time the car's angle with the sun catching the edge of the driver's-side A-pillar. Another phase of life captured.
 
18mm  f/5.6  1/160s  ISO 400
Heavy Rain over Northern Maine Lake Heavy Rain over Northern Maine Lake
A heavy rain falls on a northern Maine lake. Just because it is raining does not mean that the camera should be put away. No, the Rebel T4i and EF-S 18-135 STM Lens are not weather sealed. This image was captured from under a porch.
 
102mm  f/8.0  1/80s  ISO 100
Old Red Maine Cabin Old Red Maine Cabin
This old red cabin is found at Red River Camps in T15, R9, Maine. No, you can't tell if the 18-135mm STM lens has distortion at this setting as the cabin has plenty of distortion itself.
 
135mm  f/7.1  1/40s  ISO 100
Moonrise Moonrise
This simple composition captures a near-full moon rising over layers of color created by a setting sun. While this is not a complicated image to create, care must be taken to not overexpose the very bright moon. I used an exposure that made the brightest part of the moon nearly pure white (nearly blown). This exposure, timed right with the setting sun, gave me enough brightness in the sky to clearly show the color gradient.
 
85mm  f/5.6  1/50s  ISO 100
Canyon Vista, WE SP Canyon Vista, WE SP
The Canyon Vista Overlook in Worlds End State Park is a great place to start a morning. Fog often fill the valley below. The scene changes by the minute as the sun burns off the fog.
 
50mm  f/11.0  1/50s  ISO 100
Backlit Maple Tree Backlit Maple Tree
Use backlighting as one of your landscape photography techniques. Backlighting yields very dark tree trunks & branches and very bright leaves. This technique is especially successful when the leaves change color in the fall. Let the sun peak through an opening to add more interest to the image.
 
29mm  f/8.0  1/80s  ISO 100
Docked Dinghies, Cape Porpoise, ME Docked Dinghies, Cape Porpoise, ME
Small rowboats/tenders are frequently found at the docks in Cape Porpoise, ME. Photos of these little boats are very popular.
 
35mm  f/8.0  1/100s  ISO 100
53mm Sunset 53mm Sunset
The focal length needed to best capture a sunset varies dramatically. A zoom lenses with a long focal length range built in will give you many options without a lens change.
 
53mm  f/8.0  1/125s  ISO 100
When Distortion Matters Most When Distortion Matters Most
In many scenes, you cannot determine if the lens capturing them exhibited distortion. But, if there are lines near the edge of the frame, distortion becomes readily apparent. Distortion is correctable, but distortion correction is destructive to image quality.
 
You can find The Old Salt's Pantry in Kennebunkport, Me.
