Here are some of my shots from enjoying a day in Boston, to see their St. Patrick’s Day Parade. I took the MBTA in. It was interesting to see a lot of young folks gathering to take the train. For many, it seemed like their first trip, trying to navigate how it worked. It was very crowded, and difficult to find the right compositions for what could be good shots. Not many brawls but there were a few at the end of the day. Overall it was fun. I’ll be adding more to this gallery as I go through and make some light tweaks to the images. Oddly enough, there was no one in kilts, at least not that I saw. Boston needs to learn to do Irish better I guess.

I’ve been sick from something I ate. Once I managed to crawl out of bed, and found that I could keep things down in my stomach, I took some selfies. This was my favorite. I used my D7200, with a Sigma 18-50mm lens, at 35mm, at f4, shutter speed at 125, and ISO 100. I had my Godox AD200 back lighting me as a rim light, and a softbox to camera right. Black backdrop, and the addition of some fog. I also edited the image, first in Raw Therapee, then finishing in GIMP.
Here are some of the shots of my most recent photoshoot with my friend Will. There’s a few more shots that I still need to do some light editing to. I also have some shots of my friend Joa. That’ll be a different post. These portraits gave me the opportunity to do some practice with my Godox flashes. I was using my AD200, and my V860 II, with the X1T commander. A softbox, and some gels. I did have some technical trouble getting them to fire, but I think it was user error, just not being familiar enough with the controls. I’ll need to put a small cheat sheet together for the functions of the X1T. There was some good experimentation done. I used open source software Raw Therapee, and GIMP 2.9 to do the editing for these photos. I have more photoshoots coming up in the works, with different models that I’m really looking forward to.
Here’s some shots from the carnival that rolled into Pawtucket RI this weekend. I spent about an hour there as the sun was setting. Had a fun time, and managed to keep myself away from the fried dough.
Here are a few images that I took at TF Green Airport. I spent a few hours here. When I arrived, I just missed a shot at some kind of military cargo plane. Then they must of switched up runways, because there was a good amount of time from where I was that no plane flew overhear. It’s amazing how quick these planes come in. There were some challenges, presented here, and it’s definitely something that I will go back to try again.
There is no gallery selected or the gallery was deleted.
This image was created using GIMP, a photo of my late cat Shredder, and an image of a civil peace time flag. For more information on the flag visit this link http://uscivilflags.org/home.html. My personal take on the flag, is that it’s a fabrication of patriot mythology, with some threads of truth of historical usage.
