Quote of the Day ~ 205 of 365

“Art is what we call...the thing an artist does. It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making; Something risky, something human. Art is not in the ... eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist.” ~ Set Godin

Flower Fine Art Photography over Black

Colorful flowers are a perfect photo subject to be captured on a dark or black background. I love, love how the colors saturate when displayed over black. The focus is solely on the flower blossom, its amazing shapes and forms; no distractions. This post shares my latest flower fine art photography gallery addition – Iridescence.

Boston Nights of Light

Boston is a national treasure with all its famous and historic landmarks. Its architecture is a beautiful combination of old and new. Modern architectural gems like the John Hancock Building or the skyscrapers of downtown Boston are in contrast with historic landmarks like the Trinity church, the Boston library, Quincy Market or Faneuil Hall. Boston is a fabulous travel photography destination with plenty of photo opportunities and I combined a collection of 39 Magical Boston Photo Images in this collage, all taken at twilight and illuminating the city hotspots – enjoy!

Behind the Image: Sunrise Photography Hello Boston

www.rothgalleries.com

Memorial Drive is a great Boston sunrise photography spot. I often head over to the Cambridge site of the Charles River to capture the Back Bay skyline at twilight when its famous landmarks are illuminated by the night light. However, in the wee hours of the day, Boston looks different. The morning show started minutes before sunrise when the sky turned deep orange and continued after the sun hit the horizon. I equipped my camera with a neutral density to lengthen the exposure time and create a milky water effect in the Charles River and an additional split ND filter to balance the harsh contrast between dark foreground and bright sky and captured multiple images of the sunrise light along the Charles River Skyline. A tripod is always an essential photo gear in long exposure photography and I choose a wide angle lens to capture some of scrubs in the foreground and the hues of the sky in the Charles River.



During routine post processing I removed unwanted dust spots, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final Boston skyline photography image Hello Boston in Photoshop.

Behind the Image: Night of Light - Boston Fine Art Photography

http://juergen-roth.artistwebsites.com/art/all/all/all/my+boston

Photographing Boston is always rewarding and Memorial Drive in Cambridge provides some of the best Boston city views and photography locations.  During my last photo adventure I set up near the luxury Sonesta Hotel at sunset and photographed the iconic Back Bay skyline with its famous landmarks well into the night. Night of Light was taken shortly after the last sunlight had disappeared below the horizon. The historic Prudential Center with the Back Bay brownstone houses were illuminated in beautiful orange hues. The long exposure time captured the MBTA Boston Red Line subway train as a beautiful light beam in red and white while crossing the Longfellow Bridge. The historic bridge spans the Charles River connecting Boston to Cambridge and Somerville and always makes for an interesting foreground feature.

During post processing of "Night of Light" I removed dust spots, minimally adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final image in Photoshop. Apertures in this Boston long exposure photography image was f/11, providing a 10 second shutter speed at ISO200.
