H.G. Ford crypt in Lakeview Cemetary, Cleveland Ohii

H.G. Ford crypt in Lakeview Cemetary, Cleveland Ohii

Jen and I were in Cleveland not too long ago and I wanted to make sure we stopped at Lakeview Cemetary to photograph some of the crypts.  This one was shot using a converted to Infrared Canon 40d, then processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro to add the Selenium toning.  I have one infrared shot I did many years ago shot using Kodak HIE Infrared film that I also toned in a selenium bath for the cooler color tone (and print permanence as well).

As simple as this image is, the process in capturing it was not.  To get the nice reflection in the water and to isolate the three reeds from the rest of the clutter of the background meant I needed to get down almost to eye level with the reeds.  The problem though was that Jen and I were on a small trail and the water was about 24” down from the trail.  I needed to get down on my belly, hanging over the edge of the walkway with the wood border of the fence digging into my stomach.  I also needed to be hanging over the edge far enough to get the correct perspective of the in the photo, which were several feet away.  With my arms outstretched, and my stomache being jabbed with the wood, I was able to capture a few shots.   The things we will do for a photo.

The sun breaks through the clouds shortly after sunrise one a cold winter morning over Lake Erie. This was shot only about 90 seconds after yesterday’s photo from the same location, though the focal length changed.

Morning Rays

This photo, shot on the same day as the previous three photo, seemingly shows rays of light streaming from the clouds. I did this using a long exposure and zooming the lens at the end of the exposure without adjusting focus. I do not remember if I zoomed in or out. I also used this technique on a previous photo (http://potd.chrisempey.com/2008/06/20/20-zoom-zoom/).

Photos shot the same day:
A New Dawn
Sunday Morning on the Lake
Incoming Storm

Morning Storm

While I was out with Scott and John not too long ago, we were standing around talking when we noticed the storm that was off in the distance now much closer. I had time to quickly walk to my camera, spin around and get off this one photo of the storm coming in. This was the start of rain and extremely high winds. There was also and almost immediate 10 degree drop in the temperature.

A New Dawn

The sun peaks over the horizon on a late December morning. Photographed over Lake Erie, this picture shows the sun just rising over the horizon and being reflected in the water on a beach near Fort Erie.

Sunrise over Buffalo

The sun has not yet risen over the clouds in this early morning photograph. One of the first snowfalls of the season where we could take some decent photos with the snow but the light, while nice for a short period, did only last a short period.

On a side note, I have been putting together a calendar of my photos for friends and family for several years. This year I have decided to put it online for others to enjoy as well. The calendar may be purchased for $18.00 at http://www.lulu.com/content/4998007.
