In 14mm f2.8, nevada by Robert Lussier1 Comment

On my my last visit (which I hope won’t be my last visit) to Austin, Nevada I walked the short mile or so up and down main street shooting the buildings. Most of those shots were fairly mundane. After a cursory pass through the resulting, I pretty much moved on to more exciting images. So …

Stable Window

In 14mm f2.8, nevada by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Between this winter that will not end, my work schedule, training for the Boston Marathon and helping to prepare for my oldest son’s wedding coming up at the end of April, I have not had many opportunities to get out and shoot. So the “photography time” I have available has been spent in going through …

ThrustSSC

In 14mm f2.8, Cars, England by Robert Lussier2 Comments

This is an image from almost two years ago. It was shot at the Transport Museum in Coventry, UK. This is the ThrustSSC (Thrust Supersonic Car). In 1997 it became the first car to officially break the sound barrier. It did so in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert with RAF fighter pilot Andy Green at the wheel. The display is …

Home is Where the Heart Is

It has been over about a week since I’ve posted anything here (bless me father, for I have sinned). Or on Facebook. Or GooglePlus. The primary reason is illness — I had been down for the count for most of that time with the flu, or something like it. But even in moments of lucidity, …

Shadows of Stone

Last Saturday Steven Perlmutter and I hosted our final Historic Mills Photography Workshop for the year at the Stone and Everett Mills. It was our first year doing these and overall we have to call it a successful year. We hosted three full day workshops, one evening light painting workshop and three or four free …

Somewhere in Nevada

In 14mm f2.8, nevada, Travel by Robert Lussier3 Comments

This was shot somewhere in Nevada along Route 50 in April of 2012. It’s one of those road shots you have to get when you are driving on a lonely highway. When you can see miles in front of you and miles behind you and you realize you are the only person within sight. If …

The Watcher

I guess I’ll keep going with the Black and White images for the rest of the week. This one is from April of 2012 in Nevada. I was driving along Route 50 (The Loneliest Road in America) when this gigantic concrete form sitting on the side of the road caught my eye. I pulled over …

Dark Passage

In 14mm f2.8, lawrence, mills by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I’m still in awe of the Stone Mill at night. The eerie light pouring through the huge windows created some amazing shadow play, presenting amazing compositional opportunities.  This one, I am especially happy with. This doorway is fun to shoot in broad daylight, especially with a wide lens. Take away the sunlight and let the security …

Night Vision

In 14mm f2.8, lawrence, mills by Robert Lussier2 Comments

The night started as a light painting session but I wasn’t having much luck in that department. I was using a weak LED flashlight to paint the utility cart in the shot I posted yesterday. The light was pretty weak so it took me a while to fund the best approach. While I was ultimately …
