Bouncy House IPA

In 15mm fisheye 2.8 by Robert Lussier4 Comments

Back in December I got a call from Chris Hamer, Art Director at Smuttynose Brewing Co. asking if I was available to shoot the images for the packaging of their new beer, Bouncy House IPA. The answer was, of course, a very enthusiastic YES! I’ve long been a fan and consumer of Smuttynose’s fine craft …

Storrow Drive

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, boston, Cars, Cityscape by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I was attracted by the slight bend in the road. I thought the fisheye lens I already had on the camera would give it just the right amount of distortion. I also thought the shot could benefit from more traffic. And even after blending about three exposures, I still think that. But I’m still very …

The Stairwell

I’ll round out the week with another shot from the Wannalancit Mill in Lowell, Massachusetts. The moment I stepped into the stairwell I knew I wanted to start shooting with my fisheye lens. But I didn’t have this shot in mind at the time. I was thinking more of a classic wide spiral (which I …

Light Painting the Stone Mill

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, lawrence, long exposure by Robert Lussier2 Comments

Steven Perlmutter and I were preparing for our upcoming workshop on October 12 a couple of weeks ago when we collaborated on this shot. I slapped the fisheye lens on the my D700 and framed the image. Then I asked Steven to backlight the cart with the the blue LED flashlight for a few seconds white …

This Way

Here is another image from my recent visit to Belchertown State School. Next to Monday’s image it might be my favorite. Urbex locations like this work better for me when you can convey an air of mysterious creepiness. Or is it “creepy mysteriousness”? Anyway, revisiting Belchertown was a treat. It had been over a year …

Pacific Mill

An older image for today’s post. This one from May, 2012. Although it could be from May of 2013, or 2011, given how much the Pacific Mill has changed over the years. But that’s about to change. The last time I was there I noticed “Dig Safe” markings on the ground and one section of …

The Chair

I took last Friday off to go and visit my son out in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It is about a three hour drive from where we live. Not a terribly long drive, but long enough to warrant a break – a few minutes from driving to stretch the legs. It just so happens, about halfway between …

Turret Arch

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, landscape, Travel, Utah by Robert Lussier2 Comments

Our sunset shoot was done  and we were hiking towards Turret Arch when I saw this — Windows Arch through Turret Arch.  I was standing almost directly under Turret Arch so the shot called for my fisheye lens. The same fisheye lens I rented to Chris Nitz just a half hour before. Yes. Rented. Well, ok. Technically …
