New series - Composition in Photography

New series - Composition in Photography

Learn Composition in Photography – More than any new camera purchase, learning to compose interesting and compelling photographs is a far better way to improve your photography.

Composition isn’t a set of rules, requirements or standards, composition is the arrangement of the elements in the picture to a pleasing result, and although any “rules” are made to be broken, you need to know what makes a picture visually pleasing before you can experiment with new ideas....

Time to order the Christmas Cards

Time to order the Christmas Cards

Here in New Hampshire we are still experiencing record heat and humidity for what should be that crisp and brisk start of Autumn. But even though it feels like July outside, time is still marching toward Christmas at a steady pace.

Christmas Cards are one of those things you don't want to put off as it's one of the easiest seasonal tasks to get ahead - order Christmas cards early and start getting them addressed and written now and it is on more thing you don't have to do during the busy Christmas season with all of those Ugly Sweater parties to attend.

Seems this year people are tending to procrastinate more than last year. Last year I started selling boxes of Christmas cards in July. This year I haven't seen any Christmas card sales yet. Me thinks there will be a last minute rush if people don't get a handle on their card orders early.

Christmas cards can be ordered by the box at a great savings. Try the link below for some suggestions of wintery scenes from Vermont, New Hampshire and fun Santa Dog images - https://edward-fielding.pixels.com/art/christmas+cards

The Tree of Zen

September 26th, 2017

The Tree of Zen

The Tree of Zen came about during a hunt for great positions to capture the Valley Railroad train runs down in Essex, CT. That summer I was helping my parents clean out their house for a final move down to Florida. They had been snowbirding between Fort Myers, Florida and Westbrook, CT for a number of years but now medical conditions made it too difficult to make the move anymore.

It was kind of a sad experience and I needed to get out for a break. I also knew it would be one of the last chances I'd have for an extended period of time in the beautiful Connecticut River Valley area.

Tracing the route of the railroad on satellite images, I discovered Pratt Cove which is maintained by the Nature Conservancy. The tourist steam train runs right by Pratt Cove three times a day and there is a parking spot and this old boat launch dock that is beautifully twisted from the ravages of winter. Waiting for the train to pass, I noticed this great composition of the twisted dock point out towards the trees on the far shore.

Processing in black and white allow me to highlight the one lighter tree on the far shore as a destination perhaps for anyone leaving the dock. I have a large metal print of this image in my living room and it looks amazing.

Photography Tips Shooting Vintage Cars

April 24th, 2014

Photography Tips Shooting Vintage Cars

I love old cars. Beautifully restored or rusting junkers, I never miss the opportunity to capture a beautiful old vintage car. Either as a nostalgic throwback to a yesterday that I was too young to remember (except in the movies or TV show) or simply as documenting beautiful textures of pitted metal, cracked rubber and rust my camera and I are there!

1. Watch out for reflections -The shiny waxed finishes on a restored vintage car can be a nightmare to photograph because of all the reflections. Often the photographer ends up in the shot! Time to be creative with angles as well as being on the look out for distracting elements such as reflections.

2. Get in close for details Fins, wheels, emblems, interiors, engines there are all kinds of details that can be captured on a beautiful old car. Besides typically at at car show its hard to get with all of the people milling around.

3. Ask for permission At car shows you might notice that the car owners get a bit nervous when you approach their car. Basically this is their baby and they spend a lot of time polishing and buffing these beauties. What they really dont want to see is someone marring the finish with fingerprints or horror of all horrors, scratching the finish with a belt buckle. Be friendly to the owners and chat them up a bit. Gain their trust and them perhaps theyll be more inclined move the for sale sign or take out their lunch from the back seat so you can get a great photograph.

The Last Resort Fine Art Photographs of Maui Hawaii has been released

January 30th, 2014

I just release my small book of black and white fine art photographs of Maui Hawaii as a book and as an ebook for the iPad. All images from this book are available to purchase as prints via Fine Art America -http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/edward-fielding.html?tab=artworkgalleries&artworkgalleryid=382174

I was born in Hawaii but didn't get a chance to return for 45 years. I wondered if this island of paradise would live up to the hype from images of Hawaii 5-0 and the Brady Bunch Go To Hawaii.
