Lobstering near Perry Cove, ME

If you've been following this blog for a while, you know I've been shooting a lot of film. Well I'm starting to turn back to digital and working to achieve the same "film" look. Here are some photos from a lobster boating trip I took during our family vacation in Maine. We took a lobster boating tour to learn about how lobsters are harvested off the coast of Maine. The fog was thick that day with a light drizzle and calm seas. Our captain was great and we had to release some lobsters back in the ocean since they did not meet weight/length restrictions or they were fertile females.

These were made with my Nikon D90.

Family Vacation - Cape Elizabeth, Maine

The family and I are finally back from a fun-filled week in New England. We spent the week eating tons of lobster and checking out several lighthouses. Here are some photos of an afternoon we spent at the Portland Head Light (Lighthouse), which is the most photographed and oldest lighthouse in America. I shot these with Kodak Portra 400 and was impressed by how rich the colors came out. I overexposed most of the photos by 2 stops with this film.

Cape Elizabeth was a great stop on the trip with tons of green space for kids to run around and have lunch. The views of the Atlantic and the Portland Head Light are amazing. A have to admit sometimes a camera can't truly show you how beautiful this place is - you just have to visit. Be sure to check back soon for more photos from Maine and Boston.
