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 …

In boston, Cityscape, Olympus OM-D by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Don’t let the calm appearance of this image fool you. The conditions were nasty. Last Saturday’s high winds and rain made shooting a challenge. But, hey, I was in Boston I had my camera. I had to shoot! But the conditions were definitely tough. I was shooting with my Olympus OM-D EM-1, which under normal …

I’m really not happy with myself. I try to post an image every weekday here but I’ve been falling way short of that goal over the past few weeks. I think (I hope) a change in attitude is coming soon, but I think it will continue to be slow here through the holidays. That said, …

New York by Gehry

In 80-200mm f2.8, architecture, Cityscape by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Here is a shot of the tallest residential towers in the Americas — New York by Gehry. The towers were designed by Frank Gehry, probably the most acclaimed architect of our time. The building is located at 8 Spruce, not far from Ground Zero and the nearly finished Freedom Tower. It is a dominant element in …

Well my weekend was a complete bust. Or it wasn’t, depending on how you look at it. I basically spent it either in front of my computer trying to recover a friend’s website that was infiltrated (on Saturday) or in front of the TV watching sports (on Sunday). Then there was the 3+ hours I …

Boston Waterfront

I shot this back in February. What possessed me to go on a solo photo walk around Boston on a cold winter night, I don’t know. But that’s what I did. Anyway, I stumbled upon it in my archives after posting yesterday’s image and thought it would be good to show the contrast. This was …

Boston in Blue

In 16-35mm f3.5, architecture, boston, Cityscape, long exposure by Robert Lussier4 Comments

This is the first shot I grabbed during last Tuesday’s gathering of photo bloggers at Boston’s Fan Pier. Contrary to appearances, this was shot pre-blue hour. The decidedly blue tone of the image is not a result of the disappearing sun, nor is it a result of software trickery. It is the result of an …

From Fan Pier

So what happens when seven photographers make arrangements to converge on the same spot to shoot the same thing at the same time? Well basically, seven photographers get some very similar images. And then they split up and try to make the scene their own. A change in perspective, camera orientation, lens selection and (back …

Back Bay

I had a fantastic time shooting the skyline of Boston on Saturday night with two friends and very talented photographers, Dave Wilson and Rich Williams. Dave was was here on business from Austin, TX and built in a couple of extra days to shoot. Rich and I were happy to oblige! For me, shooting with …

Parliament Blue

I was going to save this to post post another time, but with the London Olympics winding down, I figured today was a good day for it. This was taken from the same spot I shot this one, about 45 minutes later. The Blue Hour is my favorite time to shoot. In London in the summer the …
