Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    oo well done.. wonderful vision agaisnt the woods and light.. Love it., Gene

  • Thanks, Maureen! I went out last evening to shoot this statue, with this image already fixed in my head. It took over an hour of unsuccessful attempts, but I finally captured it just the way I had imagined the photo should look. It really was a very fun exercise to see if I could do it.

    I’m not sure if the “sentiment” I added to make this image into a card is the most effective. Any alternative suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

    Best wishes,

    Gene

    FANTASTIC! I can almost hear the fanfare too. Great artistic work Gene. Don.

  • Thank you very much, Don! I always liked using this zoom technique on film. I like it even better in digital… no wasted film!!!

    Very nice! Love the effects! ;>

  • Thanks, Vivian! The effect was accomplished while the shot was being taken. I used a “One-Touch” zoom lens to capture this image. No post processing was needed. Manually zooming during a long exposure (while the shutter was open), delivered this image “straight to the camera”.

    Best regards,

    Gene

    Amazing how skill materializes through patience. Very well done. I can see that understanding the concept would not mean the vision would be reached without some practice. Certainly a reminder of advantage of pixels over film.
  • Oh, how right you are about the advantage of digital photography. I have a similar “One-Touch” telephoto zoom for my old Canon A-1 SLR. It is impossible to know if the effect has been captured successful, until the film has been processed. I often got a full roll of blurry zooms, with no acceptable images. I definitely prefer to experiment with this type of “in camera” effect using my DSLR!

    This shot required about 20 attempts, but at least I knew when I had successfully captured the shot right away.

    Thank you very much, Bob!

    All my best,

    Gene
