Winter 2024 came and went very fast.  For the most part it was a very mild winter with very little snow.  Most of the precipitation for the winter came in the form of rain.  Mid February brought a nice snowfall of about 10 inches to Connecticut giving us a glimmer of winter's splendor.  Here are some photos of that snowstorm.

Photography Beach Family Portrait Session at Hammonasset State Park, Madison, CT https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2023/7/photography-beach-family-portrait-session-at-hammonasset-state-park-madison-ct  

Family Photography Beach Portrait Session

Hammonanset State Park

Madison, Connecticut 

 

 

The majority of my photography work falls in to the genres of landscape/nature photography and wedding photography. I have a separate website johnmunnoweddings.com for my wedding photography.  I have been schooled in many types of photography and do other types such as family portraits events etc. that don't fall into any of my two genres of photography.  So the question of where to post these becomes a questions.  I decided to post this family session here as clients do find this website and ask me if I do family sessions or portrait sessions.  So the answer is yes and here is a recent family session photographed at Hammonasset State Beach Park in Madison Connecticut.  Family is important to me and in this beautiful family session we have 3 generations of the Sander's family.  In all my photography works I love to incorporate people into the elements of nature to make for beautiful and stunning photography.  Enjoy and if you are interested in a family portrait session please contact me.

Sea and StoneSea and Stone

One of my favorite subjects to photography is ocean shores or what I call seascape photography. Connecticut is blessed with a huge number of beaches, shores, bays, and rocky shores all perfect for seascape photography. Our workshops will take place at Hammonanset State Park which is home to Connecticut’s largest beaches as well as salt marshes, rock outcroppings etc. All perfect for this class. This was a popular class last year, the students loved it.

In this class I will give lots of tips and suggestions to capture this beautiful scene through the use of long exposure photography to create a sense of motion and timelessness. Lots of photo shooting time will be provided for all to practice and take some great photos.

Take in and enjoy the beautiful summer by the sea. Hope to see you there.

Florida and Everglades National Park https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2023/3/florida-and-everglades-national-park Florida and Everglades National Park

Photo Trip March 2023

 

In New England, winters can be long.  March in particularly is a transition month of winter into spring.  The weather is variable and unpredictable.  The ground is still brown, often bare with no signs of spring yet. It is a good month to head down south in search of warmer weather and photo opportunities. This winter my schedule allowed me to pack up the car and head down to the sunshine state to explore the south, Florida and Everglades National Park.

As you head down south in the spring you transition from winter into spring and then summer. As you travel south the deciduous forests of the east start to transition to the subtropical forests in South Carolina. Deciduous trees change to Bald Cypress, saw palmetto palms and oaks covered in Spanish moss.     

My Florida photo trip started off just south of Saint Augustine.  There are a number of parks and green belts for camping and exploring including Fort Matanzas National Monument, Fort Matanzas State Forest, Marine Land-Land and Sea Preserve, Anastasia State Park and numerous beautiful white sand beaches.   With much excitement the photo journey begins.

Florida is a bird photographer's paradise.  Birds of all sizes are in abundance everywhere you look making for great images. So many of the birds such as the Brown Pelicans and storks are so different from what we see in the North East.

The next stop on the journey was visiting the beautiful beaches of Palm Beach Shores on Singer Island.  The sunrises were amazing allowing me to capture some stunning long exposure seascape photography, Florida style.

The final stop on the journey was Everglades National Park.  A place I had always wanted to visit. Everglades National Park did not disappoint. It was an incredible place of sublime beauty.  Everglades National Park is sea of grass that goes on for miles and miles.  It is very reminiscent of the African Savannah with endless seas of grass interspersed with small islands of trees.  The sheer numbers of birds was astonishing. Alligators were in abundance as well. The sunsets and sunrises brought out the pastel colors of the sky and helped the beauty and mystic of the Everglades really stand out.  It is a place where time stands still and I hope visit this incredible park again.

Connecticut Fall Foliage Season 2022 https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2022/10/connecticut-fall-foliage-Season-2022 Connecticut Fall Foliage Season 2022

 

Rains late in the season helped save the fall colors from a summer drought thankfully.  The fall foliage season in Connecticut turned out to be better than expected as a result.  Fog was present many mornings this fall and fog was the theme of this fall's autumn foliage season in Connecticut.  I was able to get out quite a bit this year including up to Mohawk Mountain early in the season. Lake Zoar where I live really shined this year with so much fog in the mornings and migrating geese and swans.  I taught a morning mist autumn fall foliage class there which was a great success.  Other featured spots in the photos include Newtown, Connecticut, Roxbury, Connecticut, Washington, Connecticut, Lake Waramaug and my hometown of Southbury.  All in all it was a magical time for photos and I look forward to seeing what the 2023 fall foliage season brings.

Morning Mist and Fog Fall Photography Workshop https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2022/10/morning-mist-and-fog-fall-photography-workshop Morning Mist and Fog

Fall Photography Workshop

 

October 19, 2022

 

Students laugh when I say "Fog is your friend".  Fog brings such a beauty to photos by eliminating clutter in the background bringing a sense of mystery and wonders to images.  When fog is combined with the colors of fall foliage it makes a recepie for wonderful photos.  Morning mist and fog as been abundant this fall foliage season making for some moody and sublimely beautiful photos.  With this in mind I set up this class.  We were blessed with many migrating geese and swans that made for great subjects for the class. The students had a great time.  Everyone learned a lot and came up with some beautiful images.

Shenandoah National Park-Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2022/8/shenandoah-national-park Shenandoah National Park

 

Shenandoah National Park is one a few National Parks on the East Coast.  It has a long and rich history of park status. The park comprises a long thin stretch of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  Skyline Drive is the 100 mile road that travels through the crest of the mountains connecting the park from north to south.  Contained within the park are countless vistas that take your breath away with expansive views extending to the west and east as well as beautiful forests, meadows, streams, waterfalls and a profusion of flowers everywhere. Wildlife of all types are abundant in the park.  This park is a gem of our National Parks and a must see for anybody on the east coast. It is a photographer's paradise indeed.

Acadia National Park Photo Trip July 2022 https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2022/7/acadianationalpark Acadia National Park 

Photo Trip March July 2022

 

Acadia National Park is one of the best photography shooting destinations in the United States.  So much diversity can be found in such a small place from the rugged Atlantic coast of Maine, to mountain top views, lakes and ponds, bays, lighthouses and harbors. The long warm days of summer draw millions of visitors to this Iconic East Coast State Park.  I have visited the park close to 10 times so know many of the best spots for photos.  

Acadia National Park is located on Mount Desert Island.  Being an island it is surrounded on all by sides by water.  The east coast is made of pink hard granite shores that are pounded by the strong waves of the Atlantic Ocean.  The Park Loop Road on the east makes for easy access to these shores. The sun rises over the ocean adding another element of beauty to the seascapes.

Printing your photos Part 1

Zoom Class

Thursday February 3rd 2022

7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

 

Digital Photography has opened up a whole new world regarding the printing and displaying of our photos.  Your photos take on a life of their own when they are taken from a photo in your camera or computer and enlarged and printed to various sizes and materials such as framed prints, canvas, metal prints and acrylic prints, panoramas etc.  But how do you take a photo from your computer and turn it into a large piece of art or photo for a competition etc.? 

This class will take you step by step through the process of resizing and formatting photos for printing through various popular software programs Photoshop elements, Photoshop and Lightroom as well as home printing and printing through popular online printing companies.  I will share with you common online labs that print in a wide variety of materials and mediums as well as go over the many different print mediums available today.

It will be an eye-opening class, and give you the confidence to transform your photos from the digital realm to the physical.

The mirrorless camera and lens revolution

Navigating through the changing world of Cameras and Lenses for 2022

Which cameras and lenses are right for you

Zoom class

 

Tuesday February 8th

7pm to 8:30 pm

 

With 2022 upon us the camera world is changing at a very rapid rate.  The world of cameras is going through one of the greatest changes since the change in cameras from film to digital.   Digital cameras are now passe and mirrorless cameras are the future and the present.  Most companies have stopped making DSLR cameras and lenses and everything is shifting to mirrorless cameras at a rapid rate.  It is very exciting yet very challenging to understand all the new cameras and lenses that are coming out.  The competition is hotter than ever with camera companies vying to keep up in this newly emerging market. 

 

Deciding what cameras and lenses are right for you is more complex than ever.  In this class I will guide you through the recent changes and trends in mirrorless cameras and lenses and help you chart your course in the direction of which way to travel regarding building upon the system you already have or how best to move to the latest mirrorless camera systems.

 

Mirrorless lens technology has taken a quantum leap in the last two years. With companies like Nikon and Canon creating a totally new line up of mirrorlesses lenses which have surpassed optically the lenses produced in the last 30 or more years.   In this class I will help you determine which lenses are best for your needs.

Supply chain disruptions and chip shortages have also changed the way people shop and purchase cameras and lenses.  Past are the days of going to B and H, adding an item to your shopping cart and having it show up on your door the next day.  New methods and places to shop are all required to get your hands on the gear you want.

Year in Review 

 

The end of the year is a time for me to take a pause to reflect upon the happenings of the year. 2021 was a good year for photography classes. I wanted to thank everyone that attended my classes in 2021. It was wonderful to get to know you and spend time together and share our passion for photography. I hope you learned a lot and enjoyed them and that they helped you be a better photographer.

I wanted to give a special thanks to Becky and everyone at Arts Escape for being the glue that has held us all together and kept our inner artists alive though this challenging time.

I will post a listing of the classes below so you get a sense of the material, locations and topics covered in 2021. As I gaze upon 2022 regarding planning photography classes and workshops. I wanted to reach out and hear what photography topics you would like to have in 2022. Please share so I can do my best to service your needs and make for a fun and informative 2022 photography class schedule. If you missed a class last year and want to attend next year let me know so I can do my best to schedule it.

 

Happy New Year and looking to a brighter 2022.

Time: 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm 1.5 hours

Cost $45.00

 

For those not-so nature-lovers, I thought I would change things up a bit by offering a night time city scape class. Yes, cities can provide so many interesting photographic subjects especially at night. Neon lights, street lights and city streets can make for very interesting subject matter. We explore the dusk to night hours in the city environment incorporating street light, store windows, neon lights in historic Seymour, Connecticut. It should make for a fun and interesting class.

 

Post Class Comments:

The class went well and we came home with some amazing images.  It was a lot of fun and interesting for the students.  Below are some of the images we were able to capture.

Family Photo Session, Kettletown State Park, Southbury, Connecticut https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2021/8/family-photo-session-kettletown-state-park-southbury-connecticut FAMILY PHOTO SESSION

Kettletown State Park, Southbury, Connecticut

 

 

People sometimes ask, do I do family photos? And the answer is yes!!  I bring the same care, artistry, and high level of detail to the family photos as I do for my weddings.  Part of that is providing location recommendations to make for a great family photo session.  

I started my career as a nature and landscape photographer and later branched into weddings, engagement sessions and portraits.  When working with people a signature of my photography is incorporating people into the elements of nature.  This really shows itself well on this photo session by including the family with the elements of the forest, stream, lake and other natural features.  

For this session, I suggested Kettletown State Park in Southbury.  It has some really cool features including a bridge, walkways through the woods, stream, lake views and more.  It was the prefect summer session location for this family shoot with Jena, Juliana and Dan.

We had a great time on the session.  Juliana was into spins, jumps and lots of fun.  Thank you all for a beautiful family photo session.

I will be teaching a seascape photography workshop on the beach. Wednesday, August 18 at 6pm. It is a great class to learn how to take ocean, seascape, coastal, beach and sunset photos. Summer is passing fast. Come experience and take in the beauty of the Connecticut Coast.

Seascape Photography Field Workshop

(rain date Aug 19, 2021)

Cost $45.00

One of my favorite subjects to photography is ocean shores or what I call seascape photography. Connecticut is blessed with a huge number of beaches, shores, bays, and rocky shores all perfect for seascape photography. Our workshops will take place at Hammonanset State Park which is home to Connecticut’s largest beaches as well as salt marshes, rock outcroppings etc. All perfect for this class. This was a popular class last year, the students loved it.

In this class I will give lot of tips and suggestions to capture this beautiful scene through the use of long exposure photography to create a sense of motion and timelessness. Lots of photo shooting time will be provided for all to practice and take some great photos.

Take in and enjoy the beautiful summer by the sea. Hope to see you there.

In Light,

John Munno

Below are some photos taken during the class

We were blessed with good weather, calms skies and just about a full moon too.  The sky was quite overcast so their were no reds and oranges of sunset but we were able to get some twilight photos, blue hour photos, the full moon and then some light painting towards the evening.  It was a great class.  The students loved it.

Since flowers were blooming all over the place I felt it would be the perfect time to offer a Spring Flower Photography Field Class.  The topic of this class was taking your photos from ordinary to extraordinary.  In this class I taught how through the use of selective aperture, proximity to subject, background selection, and angle of shooting and composition you can take ordinary subjects like flowers on your lawn or yard and turn them into beautiful works of art. Much information and techniques were taught about macro photography and the lenses and equipment to use to create beautiful macro images.  The weather was wonderful and the flowers were happy to see us appreciating their beauty.  Thanks to all the students that came and attended.   Flowers 4.24.21-35-Edit-EditFlowers 4.24.21-35-Edit-Edit

Spring Cherry Blossoms https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2021/4/spring-cherry-blossoms SPRING CHERRY BLOSSOMS

Southbury, Connecticut

 

Cherry Blossoms have to be one of my favorite trees in bloom. They are a sign that spring is here.  Cherry Blossoms line the streets of many cities and towns.  New Haven's Connecticut's Wooster Square is one of the most famous displays of Cherry Blossoms in Connecticut but other towns shine as well.  Southbury has numerous Cherry Blossoms that line the streets and when spring arrives it is a very impressive display of pink and white.  I was able to catch the Cherry Blossoms at their peak this year in Southbury.  It was a delightful time being under the tree canopies in full bloom.  For most of the photos, I used a longer lens as the flowers were up in the trees.  I took some up close macro shots as well. Take in the beauty of the colors and flowers. It is a joyful time of the year.

Happy Spring

Spring Flowers of White and Gold https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2021/4/spring-flowers-of-white-and-gold SPRING FLOWERS OF WHITE AND GOLD

Southbury, Connecticut

 

Spring is in the air and flowers are blooming everywhere. It is a great time of the year to focus on the flowers as the ground is still brown and barren and the leaves have not come forth.  Backgrounds are very important in photography.  Sometimes as important as the subject.  The use of colors that appear naturally can add so much to a background.  In this photo session I used the close proximity of a yellow Forsythia bush and white flowers and juxtaposed them so that in some situations the yellow flowers are the background, in some cases the foreground and vice versa. The morning was foggy and still with little wind which always helps when taking flower photos as wind moves the flowers and makes them a lot harder to get in focus.  It was a beautiful morning to spend with the flowers and I found it very healing.  Important equipment to have would be a tripod, macro lens or extension tubes and in this case a 70-200 zoom lens for some of the shots as it was hard to get close to them because of the height and thickness of the bushes.

Happy Spring

Meriden, Connecticut

 

Covid 19 stopped the Hubbard Park Daffodil Festival in Meriden for another year, however it didn't stop the flowers from blooming. It was a beautiful day to take in this beautiful spectacle of spring. Daffodils were all in full bloom people were taking in this annual beautiful sight.  Also some of the Magnolia trees were in full bloom too. Such a spring delight. Last year we had late frosts which damaged the Magnolia blossoms but this year they were as happy as can be.

Many of you know me from my wedding and engagement shoot photography. You may not know I do other forms of photography such as corporate events, business photography, individual portraits, family portraits, senior portraits etc. The same skill, attention to detail, and imagery is applied to the different genres of photography I do. Feel free to contact me for your special photography needs. This is a individual nature portrait session I did last week with Sarah at White Memorial Park in Litchfield, Connecticut. Sarah did a great job bringing that natural feel to the shoot.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Joy to the world.

Here is hoping my new Ebook "Magic of Acaida" will help bring a little joy to your world.

This year I am having a creatively quarantine Christmas so making the best of it. Thought this would be a good time to bring this book into the physical with the Saturn/Jupitar conjunction, entry into the Aquarian Age and birth of the Christ!

5 years in the making including 4 years, and hundred of hours in the field photographing in Acadia National Park has lead to the birthing of this creative project.

Magic of Acadia is a 162 page Ebook for photographers and lovers of Acadia National Park. It contains over 200 stunning images of the beauty of Acadia from seascape and coastal scenes, to inner lakes and ponds, forests and high mountain tops. Interactive PDF format makes viewing and navigation easy. Downloadable book can be viewed on your computer or phone.

Most of the work putting the book together happened during the initial Covid lockdown in the spring. The second lockdown has allowed me the time to put on the finishing touches and launch the platform for selling and ordering.

The book is available for download for $12.99 plus tax.

With the holidays upon us and so many of us homebound due to covid-19, now is the perfect time to transform your home into a place of healing and beauty with wall art made from my many photos.

Taking a digital image and bringing it to life through the enlarging and printing process creates a work of art that brings peace, comfort, and beauty to your home or office.

All the photos shared through my website, facebook etc. can be purchased at affordable prices as gifts for the holidays or to transform your home, office into a timeless work of art.

I am creating wall art in fine art prints, canvas, metal and acrylic mediums in single stand alone or multi panel arrangements. I have special wall art software to include photos of your room to design the perfect arrangement for you.

Connecticut Fall Foliage Photography in October https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2020/11/connecticut-fall-foliage-photography-in-october Connecticut Fall Foliage Season of Colors

Autumn in New England is a most amazing and popular time of the year.  In Connecticut the leaves start to reach their peak around the first week of Connecticut in the north, around the second week in Connecticut towards the middle part of the state and towards the 3rd week toward the south along the Coast.  Connecticut has a plethora of fall foliage photography subjects from high mountains and vistas, to reflections on lakes and ponds, forest trails, streams, rivers and brooks, historic homes and pastoral scenes and landscapes.   

The fall colors are very fleeting.  Peak fall foliage colors sometime last only a few days before turning brown, or falling from the trees by wind and rain as the weather changes this time of the year and becomes quite erratic with wind and rain storms in Connecticut by mid October.   

You have to move fast, get out and take in as much of this as you can to take advantage of this small window of time. 2020 was one of the better color years we have had in many years with more reds and yellows.

Below is a sampling of some of the fall foliage photos I was able to take for 2020 during this small window. 

Enjoy and happy fall

Herb Holden Trucking

 Broadbrook, Connecticut

 

Besides the landscape photography that I do, I also do commercial photography for business of all kind through Connecticut.  I use my photography skills to provide photos for their website, marketing and social media use. It has been great to work with so many of these Connecticut business which are an integral part of our community.  Such is the case with Herb Holden Trucking for which I did this blog.  They are a Connecticut family owned trucking and materials company located in Broad Brook Connecticut.  They have been servicing Connecticut since 1961 and provide a wide variety of services including hauling of heavy equipment, landscaping and materials and recycled building materials.

I visited a number of their facilities in the Broad Brook area and took photos of their many trucks and heavy equipment in action as well as taking photos of their hard working and friendly staff.  Head shots of the sales staff were taken as well as photos of the family owners and staff providing a large amount of photos for their website, marketing and social media use to communicate the company's message and story.

If your business website is need of refreshing or new content or you would like to have your business message and information get out in the community feel free to contact me for a photo session.

Lake Waramaug All Arounder Photography Tour https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2020/8/lake-waramaug-all-arounder-photography-tour Lake Waramaug All-Arounder

A photography tour of Connecticut's Litchfield Hills

Lake Waramaug, Housatonic River, Kent, Sharon,

and The Cornwall Covered Bridge 

 

Summer wedding photography season is a busy time for me starting in April and going into November. I try to take a little time aside in the summer to do a photography tour and focus on my landscape photography. For the last 4 years  I have been going to Acadia National Park in Maine and that has been a great place to take a summer break and photograph the amazing scenery of Acadia.  This year the campgrounds at Acadia were closed due to Covid-19 and with issues of quarantine crossing state lines, I decided to opt for staying in Connecticut which had its state parks open all summer.  I didn't get away for my more lengthy two week trip this year but was able to get away for a few days to the Litchfield Hills of northern Connecticut.

Connecticut has such a wide variety of terrain and topography ranging from the coastal scenery on the Long Island Sound to miles of fields and farms in the interior and rugged hills and valleys in the North West area called the Litchfield Hills.  This idyllic landscape  is home to Connecticut's highest mountains, The Appalachian Trail, countless lakes, thousands of acres of forest, farms and two of Connecticut's scenic rivers, the Housatonic and Shepaug.  Also found here are the last two operational covered bridges in Connecticut, The Cornwall Covered Bridge and Bulls Bridge as well as quaint historic New England houses and towns.   

Base camp for me was the Lake Waramaug State Park camping area on the shores of beautiful Lake Waramaug. This was a great place to capture photos of the lake as well as surrounding farms.  One sunrise in particular was crazy amazing over the lake.

On the shores of Lake Warmaug is Hopkins Inn.  A historic Inn and winery with stunning views of Lake Waramaug.  A great place to stop for lunch, dinner and enjoy the long days of summer.  Acres of vineyard covered hills adds such beauty to the area. Waterscape 8.2020-1105Waterscape 8.2020-1105

The Shepaug River is only a few miles away and travels from North to South through the Litchfield Hills.  It is a smaller river, quite free flowing yes oh so inviting.  It is still very wild and untouched.  It is  one of Connecticut's treasures. Waterscape 8.2020-741-EditWaterscape 8.2020-741-Edit

Sounds of Shepaug-1Sounds of Shepaug-1 After a few days at Lake Waramaug, I moved camp to Housatonic Meadows campground in Sharon, Connecticut.  Housatonic Meadows Campground is on the banks of the Housatonic River nestled in a forest of towering pines.  It is a great way to access the upper Housatonic River and Cornwall Bridge.

The Housatonic River is one of Connecticut's gems.  It is one of Connecticut's largest rivers and some of the best trout fishing in the state.  It cuts a deep valley through the Litchfield Hills creating stunning scenery with every twist and turn.

Last but in no way least is the Connecticut's most covered bride, The Cornwall Covered Bridge.  No trip to this part of the state is complete without driving over it. In an season its beauty and history will make impact on you for years to come.

Though it was a short trip this year, it provided me with amazing sunrises, quiet moments of reflection and stunning views of this very diverse and photographically rich area.  And the best part is I didn't have to drive 8 hours but instead traveled only 40 minutes from my home. Sometimes as the saying goes "There is no place like home." and I feel so blessed to live in such a majestic place I call "God's Country"

Review from previous student:

"I am participating in the Lightroom Class with John Munno which contains 3 modules. The first module, Lightroom Library, is an essential first step in beginning the post-processing activity. John demonstrated his actual procedure when he loads his photos into Lightroom from the deleting of poor shots to the rating of the photos that were the ones that he would use to edit and keep. The organizational process for sorting the photos by subject, interest was a main focus. Knowing these first steps really helped me to sort through my photos and put them in proper folders so that they will be very easily accessible. I am very much looking forward to the Editing Module! Thank you to John for providing this easy, fun and affordable way of learning Lightroom!"

Photographic Tour of Acadia National Park-Park Loop Road Part 1 https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2019/11/photographic-tour-of-acadia-national-park-park-loop-road-part-1  

Photographic Tour of Acadia National Park-Park Loop Road 

 

The park loop road of Acadia National Park is a marvel of the hand of man working in conjunction with Nature.  This is far contrast with what happens ordinarily with man when he builds buildings and road with right angles and lines that cut through, intersect, dominate and destroy Nature's beauty with his road, buildings, power lines and bridges.  Here instead, man works with Nature to bring out her beauty, shapes, curves and undulating lines.  The Park road on its east side, hugs the Atlantic Ocean and comes close to the ocean allowing for easy access to some of the most beautiful coastal scenes exhibiting Maine's rugged coast and pink granite rocks and cliffs.  Acadia National Park is a place that never grows old for me.  This summer was my forth time visiting the park.  Every time I come I am continued to be amazed by the beauty found in Acadia National Park.  This summer the weather was much better then last year, and I was awarded with amazing sunrise after sunrise and sunset after sunset for almost two weeks.  For me the blue and golden hours of early dawn and dusk provide endless colors, and magic.  Being by the sea and listening to her sweet music is the greatest of melodies and sound.  Watching the night turn to day and the day turn to night provides a feeling of wonder, presence and awe that humbles one yet includes me in this grand experience of life.  To be able to capture such amazing images for me is a life love which I feel so blessed to be able to do.  

 

Enough said for now. Enjoy the journey into the Magic of Acadia National Park with a photos taken along the east side park look road.

Freezing Rain https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2019/3/freezing-rain Every winter brings its own mix of elements of snow, cold, rain, sleet and variable weather conditions.  Some winters have been dominated by heavy amounts of snow.  Some winters bring.  This winter in Connecticut has been relatively mild, temperature wise and snow fall as been very light.  The winter has been following a pattern of mild temperatures, followed by rising temperatures then sudden dropping of temperatures with the most amazing and repeated storms of freezing rain.  There was one storm in particular that had such a dense coating of ice on the trees that stayed for days.  Normally, freezing rain on trees comes and is a very short thing but as I mentioned this year was unique in that the temperature would drop suddenly after these storms and remain way below freezing for days so cold in fact that the bright rays of the sun wasn't warm enough to melt the ice.  This created one of the most spectacular sights I have ever seen in my life with days of sunrises and sunsets casting magical crystalline rays of light across forests of frozen trees sparking like diamonds and transformed into an angelic other worldly landscape.  There were mornings and evenings where I gazed with my eyes wide open and my draw dropped as I witness this magical diamond, crystalline sparkling scene before my eyes.   It is hard for a photo to capture the magnificence  of the scene but I did my best to capture the magic of it in this blog post.  

Enjoy

Learn how to store, catalog, develop and print and share your photos using a user friendly software called Adobe Lightroom.

Wonder what to do with your photos after you have them in camera?    Struggle with finding and cataloging the photos you have in your computer?  Want to change the exposure of your photos and do some editing to help your photos come out as they appeared to when you took them?   Need to change your photos sizes for outputting to various sources such as photo contests, facebook, emails, web use and printing?  If you answered yes to any of these questions then this workshop series is for you. 

Lightroom is a fantastic and powerful photography software because it has the ability to do it all- everything you need to accomplish in your photographic workflow  from cataloging your photos, to developing, printing, outputting  and  resizing as well as making photo books, slideshows and much more.  This all-in-one program comes at a very affordable price and is very user friendly. 

Course 1:  Lightroom’s Library module 

Wednesday, February 13th,  7:00 pm

Wednesday, February 20,   7:00 pm

In this workshop I will go show you how to maximize your photo’s potential with the many development options in Lightroom including exposure, white balance, saturation hues and color balance as well as adding vignettings to your photos and cropping.  I will also go over how to use the adjustment brush and graduated neutral density filter to make local adjustments on specific areas of your image.

Course 3:  Printing, exporting resizing and outputting

Wednesday, February 27,   7:00 pm

It will be lots of fun.

Sincerely,

John Munno

Woodbury, Connecticut Historic Home Renovation flip by the Dewitt Brothers https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2019/1/woodbury-connecticut-historic-home-renovation-flip-by-the-dewitt-brothers Historic Home Renovation 

and Real Estate Photography Shoot

Woodbury, Connecticut

 

This is a real estate shoot I did for the Dewitt Brothers (http://www.dewittbrothers.com/) showing the final renovation of a Victorian Home in Woodbury, Connecticut.  The house was purchased in a state of disrepair in "as is condition".  Many repairs were unexpected such as a broken water main that fed the house. The house ended up needing all new plumbing and all new electrical work as well as a whole new heating system. Talk about a lot of work!! So the walls were all repaired, the floors all sanded down and refinished. An then Damian set out to compliment and recreate the original moldings and architecture especially in the kitchen where he custom made all the cabinets himself. Damian did an amazing job and did the bulk of the work all by himself.  This photo shoot shows the completed phase of the home with all new electricity, new plumbing, new heating, all new fixtures, floors sanded and refinished.  It was an incredible transformation and really brought out and preserved the beauty of this historic home.

Connecticut Real Estate Interior Design Photography Shoot
 

I enjoy doing real estate photography in addition to my landscape work. I do a few jobs a year. This house was a recent home construction in Westport Connecticut on Connecticut's "Gold Coast" The house features 7 bathrooms and 7 bedrooms and 4 floors with lots of room, space and outdoor swimming pool. The house was designed with Asian flair and accents throughout the house making for a one of a kind home.

This is photo shoot 1. This will be a before and after project so stay tuned for final furnished photos in 6 to 12 months.

Healing Photography Art Installation-Yale Greenwich Hospital https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2019/1/healing-photography-art-installation-yale-greenwich-hospital Healing Photo Art Installation

Yale, Greenwich Hospital

Outpatient Physical Therapy Office

 

I worked on this project over the summer with Art for Healing Environments. I provided all the photos except for 2 beach walkway scenes in the main waiting room which were done by photographer Katherine Genreau. Art for Healing Environments did a great job of the printing and custom framing and matting of the photos.  The large photo size and framing makes them very impactful especially when standing in front of them.   The photos came out great and clients are loving them at the new office as reported by the staff.

Thanks Yale Greenwich Hospital for bringing such beauty to your therapy office.  

As a side note all the photos of mine featured in this blog can be purchased in various forms for your office or home including prints, framed or unframed, canvas, and metal.  Contact me for prices and information.

Christmas Party Event Photography Shoot

Aquaturf, Plantsville, Connecticut

 

The holiday season is a time when a lot of corporations and business host their annual Christmas and Holiday Parties in Connecticut.  They are a great way for business and corporations to give thanks and offer gratitude to their employees for their hard work and dedication throughout the year.  The parties can be simple or more elaborate like this featured blog post of the Mirion Technologies, Christmas Party at Aquaturf in Planstville, Connecticut.  This party featured in addition to an amazing spread of food and desserts but, Las Vegas Style poker and roulette tables, video games, a magician, dancing a d.j. and backdrop and props for fun photo portraits.  A speech was given by the company president as well as drawing for many raffle prizes.  

Being a fine art wedding photographer, I carry my talents and artistic eye from weddings to every event I shoot making it more then a photographic event but making it an artistic expression and way to bring out the beauty of the people, event space, details and memory of your event.

I enjoy shooting events and am available year round for your business and corporate event throughout Connecticut, big or small.

Contact me for rates and to schedule me for your next event.

Connecticut Fall Foliage Photography and Wall Art https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/11/autumn-colors-and-wall-art  

Fall Foliage Season in Connecticut

A fleeting moment of time

 

Fall is a fleeting time in New England lasting only about 2 weeks.  In this short window, the green foliage of summer quickly turns to the reds, yellows and oranges of fall briefly before falling from the trees leaving the trees naked and the landscape brown before winter before winter snows fall upon the land.  To take advantage of this time of the year you have to move fast, be out in the field a lot, travel much and take in each day as if  it was the last.  Every minute counts and the same location will not look the same one day as it did the next changing sometimes from hour to hour.  This particular fall foliage season was particularly fleeting because of many days of rain and numerous wind storms that made photographing difficult and quickly blew the leaves down from the forest canopy to the wet ground below.    

With all the limitations of this fall season I was able to get out here and there to capture the beauty of this magical time of the year.  I made two trips to the northern part of Connecticut in the Litchfield Hills as well as visiting some of my old stomping grounds in neighboring Middlebury, Connecticut. I was able to capture some great morning shots in my own back yard and neighborhood "Lakeside" on Lake Zoar in Southbury, Connecticut. 

Connecticut is a big state when it comes to fall foliage with the diversity of the terrain and landscapes.  This blog post only captures a very minute part of this grand picture and is dedicated to the beauty and magic of Autumn in Connecticut.  

 

If you like what you see, all these photos are available with text in poster and print form or can be blown up with or without text into large canvas wall art  up to 32 x 48 at great prices!!  This is a great way to decorate your home or office or offer a gift for the holidays.  You can call me at 203-405-3329 or email at [email protected] for prices and sizes.

Cadillac Mountain Summit https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/8/cadillac-mountain-summit The Acadia journey continues. This time leaving the low lands and ponds of the interior to the mountains and high mountain peaks of Acadia's interior. Cadillac Mountain, one of the highest peaks on the East Coast is a great place to watch both the sunset rise and set. This photo is taken of the setting sun looking across the lands, hills and lakes and ponds to the interior of Maine.

From the summit of Cadillac Mountain you have a 360 degree view, north, south, east and west.  Every view paints a different picture of Maine's diversity from its forests and ponds to the west to its many bays and ocean inlets to the north, to the vast ocean to the east and further bays and islands to the south Main coast.

Ponds and Lakes of Acadia's Interior https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/8/ponds-and-lakes-of-acadias-interior  

Our journey to Acadia has focused thus far on the coast featuring the magical seascapes taken at the "golden hour", "first light" and "blue light" time of the day. I wanted to leave the coast and head to the interior of Acadia where I will be focusing on the many ponds and lakes that cover the interior of Mount Desert Isle. These ponds are a refreshing stop along the many trails and carriage roads that traverse the interior of Acadia. This first photo is one of the most iconic of Acadia's many ponds, Jordon Pond with the Bubble Mountains in the distance.

A short hike past along the Jordon Pond Trail take you away from the crowds and to a boardwalk trail around the lake with beautiful views of the Bubbles in the distance.

Our journey into the heart of Acadia's interior continues with our tour of it's many ponds and lakes. There is a pond of every size from small intimate quite ponds to large expansive ponds that dominate the landscape. Here is a and example of one of a small and quaint pond, Bubble Pond.
 

Bubble Pond PosterBubble Pond PosterD75O

 

Some of the lakes and ponds of Acadia can be quite small and others large and expansive. Eagle Lake is one of the larger lakes on Mt. Desert Isle. It is a short hike to get to but well worth the walk. For there you will be rewarded with much peace and beauty sitting on a rock with the small waves lapping on the shore.

Our journey through Acadia continues. This time we leave the more know and traveled east side of Mt. Desert Isle to the lesser west side of Mt. Desert Isle, referred to as the quite side. A series of dirt roads takes you to the interior ponds and trails. This pond as the name describes is a very isolated quite large pond called Long Pond.

Magic of Acadia Seascapes https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/8/magic-of-acadia-seascapes Summer is flying by.  It is already August and where is the time going.  Being a full time wedding photographer summers can get very busy.  Often I blink my eye and summer came and went and Autumn is upon us.  This summer I decided to take a mid summer break and go to a special healing place of mine for a photography trip--Acadia National Park in Maine just south of Bar Harbor. It is place where I can really commune with the sea and breath in the sea air and immerse myself in the rhythm and sounds, sights and scents of the sea.  It is great place to capture these magic and timeless moments especially as the night turns to day and the day to night.

I took lots of great photos and had a fabulous time despite some challenges with the weather.  In the past people have really enjoyed these photos so I thought I would do a series of blog posts on them over the next few months.  I will not only be featuring seascapes but many of the mountains, ponds and forests that make up Acadia National Park.  So stay tuned.  I am also looking at doing a seascape workshop in Connecticut in August.  Contact me for more information at 203-405-3329.

Seasons Magazine Summer Edition covers https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/7/seasons-magazine-summer-edition-covers  

Summer is such a beautiful time in Connecticut.  It is what so many of us live for.  It somehow takes away the memory and the dread of winter that so many of us face.  Connecticut is blessed with so many places to enjoy the summer ranging from the beaches, coves and marinas of the Connecticut Coast all the way to the highlands to the north of the Lithchfield Hills.  I am happy to share that two of my images were chosen for the covers of Connecticut's Seasons Magazine.  The first cover is for Seasons of the Shoreline and is a photo of The New London Lighthouse.  The second photo was taken for the Seasons of The Northwest Hills was taken at a dairy farm in Roxbury Connecticut.  

Get out there and enjoy the summer!!

Medical Business Photography Shoot

 

Last week I was contacted by Cloud Care  Medical Practice Software www.carecloud.com to photograph their medical practice software in use at The Foot Group Podiatry office in Wilamantic Connecticut.  Cloud Care wanted to show the software being used by the staff and with patients as well as giving an overview of the office. The photos will be used on Cloud Care's website to help sell their product to potential customers.   Their software is used on desktop computers as well as tablets.  Wilamantic is great town with a lot of history and it always nice to visit the "quite corner of Connecticut".  Special Thanks to Dr. Karla and the staff at The Foot Group for assisting me with this project.

How to Take Flower Photos https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/4/how-to-take-flower-photos  

How to take flower photos

 

Here in the North East we’ve had a long winter and wondered if and when spring would arrive.  The good news is spring has finally arrived.  The spring peepers (frogs) are out and are peeping away.  The robins have arrived and the earliest of spring bloomers, the snowbells and crocuses are out. 

This is a great time to get out you cameras out, blow off the dust and start to photograph this most beautiful occasion.

Why Flowers?

Flowers with their intricate patterns, colors and shapes for me are what I call “The Blueprint of the Divine”. Flowers with their beautiful colors are welcoming and inviting, as well as healing , help brighten the day and can be fragrant too.  They add beautiful color to your photos for interior design, home décor, cards etc.   So let’s get started.

 

ResurrectionResurrection

 

Weather/Lighting

Flowers can be photographed in many lighting conditions.  My favorite is slightly overcast sky.  In this type of lighting, the petals of the flowers are open and the colors of the flowers really come out and are not washed out by the sun.  The clouds act like a large soft box and shadows and contrast are minimized. 

 

Bleeding HeartsBleeding Hearts

 

Shooting flowers in the shade can yield similar results although the colors are usually (cooler) more on the blue side and the illumination less of the petals and flower in general.

Freedom Flowers 4Freedom Flowers 4

Diffused light in the later part of the day towards the evening or early morning can be very nice as well, either before the sun is up or when the sun is low in the sky.

Direct sun is one of my least favorite lighting to use for flower photos as the sun’s rays can easily overexpose the petals and parts of the flowers that are in contact with the sun as well as adding strong contrast to other parts of the photos.  Often the tonal range between the most bright and the most dark is more than the camera can capture so either some parts of the image will be blown out or overexposed and some parts will be underexposed or black.  You might like this effect but to mellow this out, use a diffuser to put between the sun and your flower to block and soften the sun’s rays.

 

Bloodroot 5-31Bloodroot 5-31

 

Another way to cut down on the reflections  from the sun on your flowers is to use a polarizer filter.  This will also help saturate the colors in the photo as well.

 

Positioning yourself

Every flower shot is different so where you position yourself can vary.  Getting up close and personal with your flowers will reveal more detail in your photos.  It will help fill the frame of your photos creating more impact in your photos as well allow the viewer and yourself to have a more intimate experience of the flower.  If you get too close your camera won’t be able to focus so you may have to back away a bit if the image is blurry and can’t focus.  Also before you stick your nose in  a flower make sure there are no bees in it!!

 

Into the HeartInto the Heart

Getting down and low is important for the reasons stated above.  It also allows one to enter the world of the flower and see the world through the flowers eyes in a sense.  It also can cut down on distracting objects in the background and reveals parts of the flower not often seen such as under the petals etc.  You may look silly rolling around on the ground but you may also notice a healing effect of more energy, clarity of mind and grounding from making direct contact with Mother Earth.

 

Flowers 4.12.18-171Flowers 4.12.18-171

Note of Caution:  Make sure to have tick spray on if you live in the East Coast if you plan on rolling around on the ground.  Many natural essential oil tick sprays such as “Badger anti-bug spray” are safe and work great”

 

Overhead shots can be another great angle to reveal the inner patterns on the petals as well as the inner parts of the flower.  

Iris Flower purple and whiteIris Mandala

 

Sometimes a slightly looking down angle can capture both the external petals as well as interior parts. 

Lily 1Lily 1

 

 Even looking up can be a good angle to create a larger than life image as well as uncommonly  seen perspective.

 

Bloodroot 5-29Bloodroot 5-29

 

Camera Settings

The most important thing to remember when photographing flowers is as you get closer to your subject the depth of field, or range from near to far in focus decreases dramatically.  Larger number apertures (smaller opening) above f/10 will be needed to get the whole flower in focus.  You may have to go up to f/16 and f/22 and higher to get the whole flower in focus.  At the same time you want the background to be blurred so as not distract or take attention away from the flower.  As you do this your shutter speed will have to be set slower and if there is wind, that can create blurr as your flower moves in the wind.  The goal is to use a fast enough shutter speed to prevent any motion blurr from the blower moving at the same time maintaining proper focus on the flower and a blurred background. 

Note:  Blocking the wind with a reflector or body can help reduce the wind effect.

To better get the whole flower in focus some photographers will use a technique called focus stacking where multiple photos of varying focus distances are taken and combined together in Phototshop or dedicated focus stacking program such as Helicon Focus to do this. 

 

flowers 6.13.17-10flowers 6.13.17-10

Camera Lenses

The key to choosing a lens is to get a lens with the shortest or minimum focal/ focusing distance-the ability to get as close to a subject as possible.  The lens which does this the best is called a Macro Lens.  There are different focal length Macro lenses for different effects. I prefer the longer focal length Macro lenses.  Sometimes using a zoom lens like a 70-200 can work well for shooting flowers if you don’t have a dedicated macro lens. 

Here is a link to various macro lenses

http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/roundup/lens-roundup/best-macro-lenses-14638

If you don’t want to purchase a dedicated Macro lens, you can use what are called extension tubes which go between the camera and the lens which allows you to get closer to your subject.  They are relatively inexpensive as compared to buying a dedicated Macro lens.

 

Patterns of PerfectionPatterns of Perfection

 

Use a Tripod

Use a tripod when shooting flowers to help prevent motion blurr/ or hand shake and to better compose your flowers.  When you are so close up to flowers the slightest of movement will be noticed in your photos.  If you are on the ground you can sometimes use smaller table top tripods or something to rest your camera on the ground while you are shooting such a bean bag/sand bag etc.  Use a remote trigger or cable release when your camera is on the tripod to help cut down on any movement or vibration in the camera especially when shooting at below 1/30th of a second shutter speed.

 

Sacred DaturaSacred Datura

 

Composition: 

How to compose your photo is very important and can make the difference between just an OK photo and a WOW photo.  Use common compositional rules such as “The Rule of Third” to position your subject and try to create depth to your photos by having other secondary flowers in the distance behind your primary flower.  Rather than having one flower you may want to have two or three etc. to establish a relationship between the flowers and create greater interest.  Lastly find a background that is not distracting in such things as patterns, colors and especially brightness all which will take the views eye away from the subject.

 

Bloodroot 5-30Bloodroot 5-30

Conclusion:

This should give you enough information to get going.  I hope I have inspired and given you the tools and information to make dynamic, creative and beautifully Wow! flower photos.

 

Happy Shooting

April Fools-Spring snowfall just when you thought spring had finally arrived. https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/4/april-fools-spring-snowfall-just-when-you-thought-spring-had-finally-arrived April Fools

April snowfall just when you thought spring had finally arrived.

The Crocuses started to bloom and there was a hint of spring in the air. We celebrated Easter and then April Fools, Winter decided to come back for a while. It was a beautiful snow, lightly falling with fog and made for some really beautiful photos on Lake Zoar and the Housatonic River in Oxford, Connecticut.

Snow can come fiercely with strong winds and everything takes cover. This snow was very different. It was a spring snow, gently falling with the sound of song birds everywhere and the feeling of new life in the air. The air was so still and morning was quiet. The snow and fog cast an other worldly feeling and commonly recognized sites were transformed into obscure and subtle beauty. Colors became muted almost monotone even though they were shot in color, sharp lines and angles became softened. It was very inviting and welcoming and calm.

Medical Healing Photo Art Instillation

Southbury, Connecticut

 

To bring healing to those in need has always been a part of my life.  For 20 years, I worked in the alternative healing field as a Bio-TouchTM healing practitioner and a classically trained homeopath.  In addition to these methods, Nature has always been a source of healing for me and one which provides much healing for many in our high tech world. 

When I opened my photography business, I wanted to merge my love for Nature with my desire to help people heal through my photography.  This has become a main purpose and focus of my Nature and Landscape photography.  

This blog post highlights a recent project collaboration with Physican One Urgent Care- an Urgent Care facility in my home town of Southbury, Connecticut.  I was contacted by Physican One during the renovation of their Southbury facility.  They commissioned me to provide local images of Southbury, containing both the historic and picturesque photos of the town as well as nature photos displaying the "more raw" elements of nature scenes of the area.

Children's Dental Associates Healing Art Project

 

I wanted to share an exciting recent project I completed with Kenneth Boroson Architects, LLC for two large canvas photos of New London's Lighthouses and seascapes for the new Children's Dental Associates Dental Office in East Lyme Connecticut. The large 4 panel canvas is 16 feet long. These healing art photos will make the dental office a fun, exciting and peaceful place for the children of the area to come and have their dental work done. The 4 Panel Canvas of the New London Lighthouse and canvas of the Ledge Lighthouse were taken last summer specific for this project and completed over the winter. It is so rewarding to see the fruits of one's labor improving the lives of those that come in touch with it. Thanks Children's Dental Associates and Kenneth Boroson Architects for the opportunity to be part of this project.

Waterford Beach Park https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/3/waterford-beach-park Waterford Beach Park

Day to dusk on the Connecticut Coast

 

With the winter in the East Coast lingering and so many of us yearning for the warmth of spring, I thought I would share a post from a commercial shoot I did this summer at Waterford Beach Park. The photos were used for a children's dental office. This gallery spans the course of an afternoon and evening on the Connecticut Coast at a gem of a beach park with salt marshes, tidal pools, beaches and rock out-croppings to the Long Island Sound. Put your feet into the sand, enjoy the sun and hear the rush of the waves as I take you through the day and dusk.

Learn how to store, catalog, develop and print and share your photos using a user friendly software called Adobe Lightroom.

Wonder what to do with your photos after you have them in camera?    Struggle with finding and cataloging the photos you have in your computer?  Want to change the exposure of your photos and do some editing to help your photos come out as they appeared to when you took them?   Need to change your photos sizes for outputting to various sources such as photo contests, facebook, emails, web use and printing?  If you answered yes to any of these questions then this workshop series is for you. 

Lightroom is a fantastic and powerful photography software because it has the ability to do it all- everything you need to accomplish in your photographic workflow  from cataloging your photos, to developing, printing, outputting  and  resizing as well as making photo books, slideshows and much more.  This all-in-one program comes at a very affordable price and is very user friendly.

Interior Design Photo Shoot https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2018/1/interior-design-photo-shoot Being a photographer takes you on a new journey every day.  You never know who will call you, what subject matter you will be shooting and where you will be going to shoot it.  For, this recent job, I was contacted by Kristine Lemos of Alive Design--an interior designer based out of Middletown, Connecticut to take photos of a recent upscale bathroom that she had designed in Meriden Connecticut.  The bathroom was beautifully decorated and designed and the details in all aspects of the bathroom from the lighting fixtures, to the faucets, cabinets and embroidered towels all made for a bathroom that surrounded you in beauty and luxury.

Beecher and Bennett Funeral Home https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2017/11/beecher-and-bennett-funeral-home I know it has been a while since I posted.I have been very busy with all the weddings I have been shooting and editing. In the midst of this I've had a few commercial jobs regarding my landscape photography work over the summer. I will be making more posts now that wedding season is winding down. This is a job I did over the summer for Beecher and Bennett Funeral Home in Hamden Connecticut in conjunction with Alive Design Interior Designs out of Middletown Connecticut. I am happy to see my photos of nature being used to lift the spirits and bring healing to those in need at a difficult time in their life--facing the loss of a loved one.

City of Danbury Website Photo Project https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2017/2/city-of-danbury-website-photos One of the projects that I worked on this fall was taking pictures for the City of Danbury's website.  This was quite different from most of my commercial jobs which involve being out the woods somewhere by myself capturing certain aspects of nature.  This project took me into the heart of the City of Danbury and included photographing 10 departments within the city that were responsible for the running of the city.  I was given entree into the behind the scene going-ons and met with the staff of departments as the airport, fire department, hospital, public works, construction, parks and recreation departments, police etc.   It was a touching experiencing meeting all the hard working employees of the City of Danbury that worked day and night performing their duties that helped the city run.  I also had the chance to explore the City's 40 square miles from down town Danbury to distant golf courses, parks and recreational areas.

2017 Dime Bank Connecticut Calendar https://www.johnmunnophotography.com/blog/2017/1/2017-dime-bank-connecticut-calendar Pardon me for being late in my posts. It is the end of January and I am just coming out from what was a very busy summer and even busier fall.  Summer was busy with all the wedding photography work that I do and then fall came around with two big landscape photography jobs on top of a wedding every weekend.  One job was with the City of Danbury, taking photos for their new website (post to follow soon)  The other project was this one for Dime Bank who asked me to provide photos for their 2017 Calendar of Rhode Island and Connecticut.  So for almost a month between these two jobs I was going from one end of Connecticut to the other racing to get the photos in before the weather closed in on me.  On one of the trips to the South East Corner of Connecticut to take photos, I was snowed upon by an early autumn snow  (see my post Colchester Snow).  So yes, behind every landscape photo there is a story and often an adventure too. The project came out great and the clients of Dime Bank loved the calendars. So thank you Dime Bank for this opportunity to live my dream and do what I love to do which is share the beauty of Nature through my photography.  They put a nice write up on the back cover about my work.  Here are photos of the final product.
