Additional Panorama Images from the 7 Lakes Drive in Harriman State Park. Most images were taken with a Canon 24-105mm lens with a Canon 1D mkIV. The last image was taken with a Panasonic GH2 m43 format camera with a 14-140mm lens. The Featured Image is made from 2- handheld 24mm horizontal images blended in Photoshop for a taller image to get a little more sky & foreground.
A series of multi-image panoramas taken at the 7 Lakes Parkway that runs through Harriman State Park to Bear Mountain in New York state. It is an excellent area for photographing Colorful Fall Landscapes with colorful leaves and colorful reflections in the Lakes. All images here were taken handheld with a Canon 1D mkIV with a Canon 24-105mm lens. The Featured Image is made from 3 landscape images taken @ 24mm.
Happy First Day of Fall. Can’t believe another Fall Season has come upon us. Cooler Days, Colorful Leaves and Wonderful Photographic Opportunities are coming here in the Northeast. Take advantage of the Fall to stock up with colorful landscapes, panoramas (both horizontal & vertical), leaf macros & closeups and skyscapes before the dull winter months. This gives me a stock of images to work on during the Winter months. I like to look for interesting leaf color combinations, trying different crops or processing techniques on the same image. So get out and have some fun capturing Fall in all of its colors.
Try Capturing a series of images from the same subject, trying wide to closer up. You can use this to help tell a story or just to see what image you like better for next time.
For landscapes intermix verticals in with horizontal formats. See what works best for what you are seeing in your minds eye. Also shoot a few different views or crops in the same area. Often a composition I liked best looking through the viewfinder, seems not to be the “best” once I am working on editing them on the computer.
Look for detail images when you are working on your landscapes. Helps show the area and what is happening in the landscapes.
