What I See and What I Do

Here’s another example of how I work with images. I started by selecting a small area of the scene before me. Looking through the viewfinder of my Canon 7D mark II, I moved forward and back, side to side, and up and down, changing the visual relationship of the posts and what was included and excluded in the scene. After pressing the shutter, I checked the histogram on the rear of the camera, to make sure I had a full range of values, without losing highlight or shadow detail.

The next part of the process is downloading the image with Adobe Lightroom. I add key words so that I can easily search my collection in the future. Then the digital magic begins. I won’t go into all the steps, but according to the history window, there were 25. I did crop to different proportions, adjusted lighting, and cloned out a piece of concrete wall in the lower right corner.

I am a fine art landscape and nature photographer living and working on Cape Cod. The area, and my familiarity with it, leads to compositions of light, weather, and frequently water in its many forms. I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work
