Fall In the Pine Barrens 2020

2020-11-27T09:10:10-05:00November 27th, 2020|

Exploring Over 1,000,000 acres My last blog post was about fall mist in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, but the 2020 fall season had a lot more to it then a few misty mornings. It's been a busy one. Pandemic restrictions lifted enough to so I could start holding small photography workshops. My webinar on photographing the New Jersey Pine Barrens for [...]

Fall In The Pine Barrens

2019-11-13T07:01:38-05:00November 12th, 2019|

Fall Cedars by Richard Lewis 2019 A Week on the Mullica River Fall in the New Jersey Barrens is special. The leaves on the deciduous trees that grow among the pines turn beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow making the Pine Barrens look like it is gift wrapped. This year Fall came a little early and didn't stick around [...]

2018-11-18T09:39:33-05:00November 16th, 2018|

Fall in the New Jersey Pine Barrens is always a great, but it was exceptional this year. Landscape photographer Richard Lewis spent 3 weeks out photographing the changing colors of fall in the Pinelands.

Birth Of A Day

Don’t Ignore Your Photography Instincts Properly planning a photo shoot can mean the difference between an amazing result and a mediocre one. There is nothing worse than arriving at a location just after the best light has happened. So what do you do when your photography instincts want to override a well thought out plan? Good question. It is a question that might [...]

Philipsburg Manor In Sleepy Hollow NY

2017-05-19T10:35:43-04:00January 26th, 2017|

A Morning In 17th Century It's amazing how a nice sunrise can provide an incredible sense of peace. That is what I found one morning in the Village of Sleepy Hollow, New York. There is an old historic site there called the Philipsburg Manor that dates back to 1693. Normally this place is full of people enjoying a pleasant spot on the Hudson River. However, at 6am on [...]

The Ozark Mountains, Yup, The Ozark Mountains – Part 2

Missouri's Rugged, Beautiful Landscape Here are more photographs from my trip to the Ozark Mountains in Southern Missouri with photographer Craig McCord. In my previous post I showed the old mills we visited which were set in a beautiful and rugged landscape. The photographs below show more of that landscape. There were not a lot of opportunities to photograph the grand landscape of the Ozark [...]

The Ozark Mountains, Yup, The Ozark Mountains – Part 1

2017-05-19T10:35:45-04:00October 26th, 2016|

The Old Mills and Landscape of Southern Missouri When I signed up for Craig McCord's photography workshop in the Ozark Mountains, he probably thought I made a mistake. Why would a guy from New Jersey go to southern Missouri to take pictures? Shouldn't I be going to the Grand Canyon, the Grand Tetons or some other place with grand in its name for great photography? Well, I [...]

A Barn For All Seasons (Almost)

2017-05-19T10:35:48-04:00April 26th, 2016|

Three out of four isn't bad, right? We all have our favorite places and this is one of mine. I pass this old barn almost every day and its elegant, simple utilitarian architecture calls to me. Recently, I photographed the barn in the early Spring and realized that I now have images of it in three of the four seasons. Summer is absent because the barn [...]

Fall Colors In America

2017-05-19T10:36:00-04:00November 8th, 2015|

 Composition Still Rules This year we were fortunate to experience the Fall colors in Arizona, New England and New Jersey. Photographing these colors on the trees can be challenging because it is easy to be seduced by their beauty and forget what it takes to create a great photograph. The art of photography is more than pointing a camera in the general direction of a [...]

An Old Pine Barrens Cabin

2017-05-19T10:36:02-04:00September 24th, 2015|

Sunset At The Old Cabin by Richard Lewis 2013 One winter evening, I came upon this old cabin in the New Jersey Pine Barrens by accident, resulting in the image above. For some reason I keep feeling the need to return and see it in different light and at different times of the year. As an added benefit, I recently was given [...]

Fonthill Castle in Doylestown Pennsylvania

2017-05-19T10:36:09-04:00November 11th, 2014|

Henry Mercer’s castle is actually a photographic training ground I’m not sure why I decided to join photographer John Barclay on a photo tour of Fonthill Castle. Fonthill is the name of a bizarre home built by a wealthy eccentric named Henry Mercer in the early 20th century. Located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, it consists of a strange layout of rooms which are connected [...]

Hidden Treasure

2017-05-19T10:36:26-04:00December 21st, 2013|

2013 was a growth year for my landscape photography. I invested more time in the craft and actively collaborated with other artists and photographers. I'm going to use the next few posts to show some of my photographs from this year that reflect this growth. This one is a hidden treasure. View of the Hudson River from Iona Island by Richard [...]
