Fog and Seascape Photography Tip

Incorporating a strong foreground feature in your composition as it will make for a better and more interesting photography images. Ensure your elements in front of your lens are in focus; those elements will become your main subjects while the rest of the composition disappears into a foggy scenery.

Taking Care of Museum Quality Fine Art Photography Prints and Investment

Museum quality fine art photography prints are created on acid-free papers with archival inks to guarantee that your prints last a lifetime without fading or loss of color. Matte  paper is long-lasting and versatile. It's ideal for high contrast and crisp reproductions. Glossy finish shows off your photo art with luxuriant depth and vivid colors. My limited signed edition collection prints are printed on museum quality LightJet Fuji paper that last longer than a lifetime. I work with a local photo lab in Massachusetts that provides these high quality, long lasting fine art prints and where I can stop by, and discuss the final prints. Please Contact Me direct for pricing and delivery of limited signed edition photography artworks.

With the appropriate care, photography prints will last for years, so you can fully enjoy and appreciate the artwork for many years to come: 

1. Dust your photos print with a clean, soft cloth to prevent dust build up. Do not wipe dust spots of with your fingers as it will be very abrasive and scratchy to the surface of your Photography Art.

2. Do not use any cleaning products or water since the chemicals may permanently damage your photography prints.

3. Avoid blowing on your prints because you may inadvertently leave water droplets and marks on your fine art photography prints. 

4. Keep your fine art prints out of direct sunlight because it may fade or crack your Art Prints. Consider rotating prints in direct sunlight locations to minimize impact.

5. Note that ultraviolet light from many fluorescent lamps may cause damage to your photographs due to alteration of the chemical molecule bonds in inks and chemicals used throughout the picture printing process.

6. Do not exhibit your photo prints in areas where dust and pollutants are dominant as those environmental conditions may lead to damage in form of discoloration, e.g. cigarette smoke, motor exhausts, smog, fresh paint. 

7. Avoid hanging your photo art in places with great fluctuations in moisture and temperature as it may enhance growth of mold and mildew resulting in significant damage or loss of your Fine Art Photography investment. Do not hang your artwork above heaters or fireplaces.

8. Avoid touching the surface of your fine art print with your hands or fingers because the oil in the skin can cause long term damage.

Photo Tip - All About That Base

After purchasing a camera and lenses, a steady tripod is one of the next most important investments for a photographer. High quality photography images are rarely accomplished when a camera is hand held. A tripod is a must have photography gear for low light skyline, landscape or seascape photography during the early morning, late afternoon and evening. During twilight or night photography exposure times become even longer and it will be all about that base. It is a must for long exposure photography when creating silky water effects of brooks, rivers or waterfalls and it often comes in handy for shooting wildlife and macro photographs. It also is necessary when we experimenting with impressionistic or abstract photography and I like to use during intentional camera movement photography. 


The tripod not only steadies our camera gear for highest image quality, it also helps us to discover the world of photography. We are more likely to step back and slow down, think about the photo subjects and compose a more meaningful photograph. We most likely answer questions like is the horizon straight, is there sufficient depth of field, shall I close the aperture setting to maximize depth of field, are there any distracting elements in the foreground or background of my composition, do I even have a composition?



A tripod allows us to explore the ever changing light while setting up our photography gear for the best composition and patiently waiting for the optimal light. 

 

The tripod is like a third hand and it frees our hands to make last minute filter, camera or focal lens adjustments. This is a prescription ~ don't ditch your tripod!

Flower Photography Tip

Photo Tip: Being creative by isolating characteristic features of a floral in abstract forms and shapes. Explore different, unusual perspectives, e.g. low camera angles, zooming in real close with a macro lens, or use a very shallow Depth of Field

#1 Fall Foliage Photography Tip

http://www.exploringthelight.com/

Photo Tip: The Polarizing Filter is a handy tool to boost color and balance the contrast in our photography images. The polarizer eliminates unwanted glare on reflective surfaces like leaves, that otherwise may distract from the photography composition. Its effect is similar to sunglasses; overall these filters increase color saturation, boost blue sky, add cloud contrast, control reflections and add neutral density to lengthen exposure times for impressionistic  or silky water effect images.
