This month’s client photo gallery features work from Michael Paxton of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.  These are photographs from Michael’s two recent trips to Dominica – enjoy!  All images copyright Michael Paxton 2009.

Dominica styles itself as ‘The Nature Island of the Caribbean’.  A rugged, volcanic island to the north of Martinique, it’s known more for its rain-forest, rivers and waterfalls than its beaches. These photos were taken on Dominica’s windward side and give some indication of the beautiful light available to the photographer as the day progresses from dawn through to a moonlit night.  As always a huge thanks to Eric for his guidance on the use of Vari-ND filters and all of the cumulative advice that continues to improve my photography.

A few days ago we worried that rain might wash out this annual Spring celebration at the Reeves Reed Arboretum in Summit, NJ.  Dark gray clouds loomed in the sky for most of the day, and as 3 o’clock rolled around it didn’t seem to be getting any brighter out.  However, nothing short of rain was going to stop the forward progress of photographic education.  Members of our small group all trickled in by 3:30 or so and at around that time, the sun came out of hiding and offered more possibilities for talking about exposure, metering, composition and ISO options.  All in all, it was a great day for those who were involved and everyone went home with more experience and photographic knowledge than when arrived.  Look for more of these informal mini workshops that we offer.  All events are posted on this blog, so check back often!

Enjoy some photographs Kerry shot from Daffodil Day!

We had a Nikon 200-400 f/4 VR lens for the day and brought it out to the Bronx Zoo for a day of wildlife shooting.  The animal habitats were not all conducive to shooting with a lens like this, but we also had with us the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 and the Nikon 85 f/ 1.4.  So, we pretty much had all of the bases covered.  Look for my review on the Nikon 200-400mm lens within the next week or so.  In the meantime, enjoy the zoo photos!

These photographs have received an Adobe Lightroom -ONLY treatment.  There has been no retouching done in Photoshop.

Eric and I have discovered a wonderful photo opportunity just 10 minutes from our home. The Reeves Reed Arboretum in Summit is absolutely beautiful, and lends itself to a number of photographic exercises, including macro and landscape photography. The photographs included in this article are from our outings in May and June 2008.
