Yep, that's right. Spent my annual week of summertime up in New Hampshire last week and took a variety of photos.
First up, a couple of flower macros. Because who doesn’t enjoy flower macros?
A lovely view of the lake from my family's house at sunset. Place was teeming with boat traffic all week but managed to get this with minimal interference.
So this was fun. I had been wanting to do some nighttime/star photography for a while and was hoping to do some this past week, but unfortunately I timed my trip with the lunar calendar horribly, so I had to ditch any hope of seeing many stars quickly.
Then my girlfriend decided on a whim to wade into the water by the dock with her pretty white dress. After playing around with the idea for a while (and having to get the hang of light-painting on the fly, which I’d never tried before), I finally started getting something interesting and ever-so-slightly unsettling. After getting a result I found satisfactory I had her get out, and I snapped another similar long-exposure without her present.
These two photos were the results of two nights of playing with this idea and these techniques. There are things I’d do differently if I had more time to mess around with it, but I really enjoy this idea as a whole and plan to continue exploring it in different scenarios.
Anyway, here’s the ghost of Squam Lake. Don’t know if she’s a friendly ghost or not, but something certainly seems to be out there that has her attention.
And lastly, have this majestic photo of an adorable and tiny screech owl I was able to snap courtesy of the wonderful people over at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. Been going there pretty much my entire life and always manage to see something new and fascinating every single time I go.
Anyway, that's what I've been up to. That and work and life and whatnot. The usual. Hope all you people going to RTX this weekend have a blast. :)
