An Impassioned Plea For Art’s Sake

Venus and car light streaks

Hello, my name is Kevin Adams, and I’m addicted to layers. There, I said it. Yes, I use Photoshop. And Photoshop layers. I even—gasp—shoot and stack multiple exposures for some of my images. Now that I’ve admitted committing such a crime, I don’t expect anyone to look at my images ever again without suspicion. How could Read more... you know you want to.

Saying Goodbye To Old Friends & Exploring New Frontiers

Orionid Meteor-Big Dipper-Venus-Blue Ridge Parkway-North Carolina

Note: I shot every image in this post from the same location. In this recent galactic post, I talked about exploring those “one of these days” places that we all drive by on the way to somewhere else.

Nightly Night Photo – Dawn In Burano

Dawn in Burano

During the day, throngs of visitors descend upon the little village of Burano, which is just across the bay from Venice. But at night, Burano settles down to the sleepy village that it was before it became a tourist attraction.

The Photographer’s Planet

Venus in the dawn twilight

I love Venus. The “morning star.” The brightest of the stars and planets. The fact that it often shines low on the horizon during twilight, and is bright enough to record easily in photos. Venus is a photographer’s planet. But my favorite thing about Venus? That’s where all the women are from!

Correcting for Vertical Perspective Distortion

Perspective distortion in photo

As I mentioned in Friday’s post, I’m an all or nothing kind of guy when it comes to perspective distortion. Well, when it comes to a lot of things, but we won’t get into all that. Here’s a shot I made on the same morning that I shot the James Buchanan Duke statue at Duke University. Read more... you know you want to.

Nocturnal Image of the Day – Venus and the Crescent Moon

Venus and crescent moon in twilight sky

New moon is a night photographer’s best friend. It’s the time to photograph the night sky and capture the stars and Milky Way in all their glory. And in the few days just before and just after the new moon, you have the bonus of a thin crescent moon in the twilight sky. In the days Read more... you know you want to.
