Went up to VT this weekend to my cousin Bonnie's wedding. It was very much a countercultural/hippie/bluegrass musician style event on a mountaintop farm and great fun was had by all. I was so happy to have a chance to shoot all kinds of people since I don't normally have many willing subjects around here. I brought the 85L and 135L and got some of the best people shots I've ever done. What a blast! Here's some samples.
Few shots from the Turners Falls power canal complex this morning. They have drained the canal as part of the annual cleanup and repair efforts. So it's an interesting change of perspective for a few days and I will do some more shooting down there as time permits. First two shots are with normal lenses and then last three are Lensbaby.
Some nice light over the river in Turners Falls the other day. And a shallow depth of field shot of some turkey tail mushrooms in the woods yesterday. First one was testing the 50 f1.4 at f11 and the second one was testing the 85 f1.8 at f2.
These old heaps are parked on the front lawn of an excavating company in Northfield and are a familiar local landmark. Gotta love old trucks and steam shovels as they slowly turn into piles of rust and assimilate back into the earth. I used a variety of lenses on these including fisheye and Lensbaby Composer. It was a little bit bright though...I will go back another day when I have better light and shoot some more of these.
