Moo Cows

A found shot near Hudson NY. Who could pass up a shot of fake cows! I used the iPhone 4 and processed it in Camera+. In Camera+ I added some punch with Clarity and a Polarizer effect. I walked around the scene to get what I thought was the best composition. Best composition includes little in the way of distracting elements in the scene as well as an area of foreground interest that then allows the viewer's eye to wander back through the photo. Enjoy, Jeff

The Gas Pumps

I frequently bike by these old gas pumps on Font Grove Road. This time I shot from ground up using my iPhone and True HDR , processing in Snapseed for a combined vintage and grunge result. Enjoy, Jeff

Magic Light and a Rainbow

Good photography often involves opportunity, timing and having a camera at that moment. While golfing this evening there was a little rain and I knew there would be a potential rainbow shot. But this! Wow, I did not expect! Shot with the iPhone 4 using True HDR App I was blessed to see this forming and capture it. Enjoy, Jeff

The Reader

Shot with the Fuji X10 in color, then converted to B&W in iphoto. Enjoy, Jeff

Tulip Perspective

The perspective the photographer takes often determines the impact of the shot. The easiest perspective is to comfortably shoot down on the flower while standing. I was looking for something different so I laid down on the ground and shot up at the tulip. Also I used Super Macro mode on the Fuji X10 at a 2.8 aperture with the program called Pro-Focus. Fuji created this program for portraiture to allow the background to go soft, mimicking a 105mm portrait lens. I tried it on this Macro shot and am happy with the results. The stem- flower junction is sharp and everything else goes soft. Note the high key light effect on the petal tips. Enjoy, Jeff

Documentary Photography

Ulster County Fair, one Sunday morning. These Hasidic boys were lined up for a ride. I loved the composition, interaction and closeness of the boys, but I had to use Street Photog Stealth Mode to capture the image. Pre-setting the exposure on the digital camera, a Sony F828, I used the upward rotated LCD to compose and snap. If I brought the camera to my face or eye, they would have noticed and all turned away. Enjoy, Jeff
