I enjoyed your video. You really took some great shots. That light house is beautiful, so is the boat or ship and water pictures. I would think those gulls screaming all around you would drive a person fishing batty LOL. Helen

Another good photographic course. Thanks Steve.

Kelly said...

...I thoroughly enjoy the effort you've put into this video. You do a great job teaching lighting tricks and things to look for, and your photos are always artistic and interesting. I'm still a baby when it comes to photography, and I learn a lot from your blog! Thanks!!

Another great video Steve...I love the troller with the gulls.

Jenny said...

Am really enjoying your video classes Steve, great insights! Troller Evie??? Maybe it's an American thing, as we call them trawlers on this side of the pond.

Steve, I love when you do these segments. I too learn a lot. Very interesting info on lighting! Thanks for taking us along your photoshoot!!!

Hi Kim, Jenny, Eve, Kelly, Roy and Helen, I want to thank you for your support. I’m working on finding a style and want to cut the length down (13-14minutes is a bit long to listen to me chatter away). I’m learning a bit doing these and I’m hopeful that you all find benefit.

Soon it will be spring and my face will be less frozen and perhaps Eve will not mix up the trollers with the trawlers from my slurred speech. (Eve, I made that mistake just once after I moved to Gloucester…just once and boy did I get some ribbing!) LOL, but we’s all friends here!

Eve said...

...Dang that Jenny Wren!!!...hahaha! I even googled that spelling to make sure it was right...Dang that Google!!!
Ha Ha! I always aim to get a good laugh in so...job well done!

Another excellent session Steve. I particularly liked the change in colours / shadows over the rocks plus the last 2 photos from as you say 'the unusual side' of the lighthouse. Cheers FAB.

One of the nice things about living on the coast is you get all the great shots! Yet another great lesson for all to learn from. As I stated in my last post, the ever changing colors of the New England scenery is what makes this photography lesson enjoyable to watch and learn. But as we all know, we never know what we will shoot until the time is present. Y’all are still capturing all the great shots. Watch out for the snow storm!!

Beautiful pics and video as usual Steve but a thought just crosses my mind: lighthouses have been the same shape and form for centuries - it seems like the technology to improve them has passed them by. I wonder if centuries from now they will still be the same? :)

Steve B said...

Thanks for the feedback, Frank, it helps me quite a bit.

Hi Bro, we got NAILED! I went back to work today, B had a snow day. You're exactly right, the colors here in New England change by the season, the month, the week, the day, the hour and by the minute. It gives us lots to work with and I don't mind missing a shot because the next one is right around the corner.

Hi Tammie Lee, Thanks for commenting!

Hmmm, Joan, I wonder if lighthouses are from a by-gone era. Many of our lighthouses have been kept light because of the actions of private enterprises. Communities take pride in their lights keep them up. And they do take maintenance. Tenpound light got a face lift last September and Eastern Point was painted a year ago and this spring received a new light, replacing the airport style beacon.

Now, if a light erected, it is usually on a steel framed tower. Lighthouse keepers have been replaced by automatic lights. No, I’m afraid these are jewels to be cherished, never to be replaced.

Glad to hear you are back at work Steve.

Steve B said...

Thanks Frank, It's good to be back.

Somehow I missed this post. What amazes me most is your patience. I think it's what is lacking in my photography, but it most likely reflects the life I lead which is a hectic one.

As much as I like my swan pictures, when I look at them I'm disappointed. I should have learned more from the post you had before on shooting white.

Great tutorials Steve. Thank goodness it's warming up because I feel cold just watching you! Your ears were so red!
