Special Malvern Supplement

I had a chance to work with the good folks over at County Lines Magazine again for their August special Supplement – “Stroll a Royal Mile… Malvern“!

Back in the beginning of June, I got an email from Jo Anne Durako the Editor of the magazine and the writer, Emily Hart about the idea of the supplement, and during the course of the thread, we had an outline for the issue.

On the First day of shooting, I took my two kids with me, as we walked King Street.

It was especially fun for me, because when I first moved down from Boston in 1993, I moved to Malvern, and lived there for a year.

Since then, there have been many changes to the town, and it very much seems to being in a growth mode!

Here are some images of:

  • Christopher’s Restaurant
  • Grazia Spa
  • Julie Anne’s Place
  • Kimberton Whole Food
  • Knots and Weaves
  • Louella
  • Nation Bank of Malvern
  • Posh Collections
  • Restaurant Alba
  • The Picket Fence
  • UpHome Ltd
  • Wolf’e Baldwin Brass Center

that were used in the Malvern Supplement!

So, if you get a chance, pick up a copy of the August issue of County Lines Magazine with the Special Malvern Supplement!

November Cover for CLM

I’m happy to announce that the wonderful folks over at County Lines Magazine have chosen another one of my images for their November cover!!

Nov 2014 Cover - County Lines Magazine
Nov 2014 Cover – County Lines Magazine

This image was taken nearly 3 years ago, on October 21, 2011,  while walking the hills behind Shamona Creek Elementary School in Downingtown, within a few feet of 40°3’27” N 75°42’7″ W.

As you can see, there once stood a corn field, but as the fall season approaches, the migrating geese fly to a nice place to eat and rest for the night.

This view does NOT exist anymore.

Since then, the new Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center has been built, and my daughter, Madison, is one of the first students in the new building!

Again, many thanks to the wonder folks over at County Lines Magazine!

October Cover for CLM

In early September, I got a chance to work with Jaimielynn Cooper of County Lines Magazine to shoot the October cover at Wolff’s Apple House in Media, PA.

After an hour or so of looking around at the various fruits and vegetables that were available to us, Jaimielynn & I  put together various scenes, took a couple of cell phone shots, and sent them back to the editors for review.

I thought to my self how much things had changed.

Gone are the days of shooting a test shot with a Polaroid…

The image slowly came together, and we captured this –

Fireworks time again!!

It is that time of the year again for fireworks!!

For those of you in Chester County PA area, here is a guide to local events that my friends of at County Line Magazine put together!

Where to Find Fireworks? (PDF)

My fellow photographer friend, Dan Potter, also put together a nice list of do’s and don’t when photographing fireworks!

I do take issue with his Bulb settings (#2) comment.

Looking back into my collection…

  • Canonet (circa late 1960s) – B on the Lens
  • AE-1 (circa early 1980s) –  B on the Dial
  • F-1 (circa mid 1980s) – B on the Dial
  • PowerShot A70 (circa early 2000s) – M on the Dial
  • PowerShot SX130 (circa early 2010s) – M on the Dial
  • Rebel XTi (circa 2007) – M on the Dial
  • Rebel T5i (circa 2014) – M on the Dial

What my data suggests, that you might be referring to an older analog film based camera, and if memory serves me correctly, Nikon did the SAME THING on their line during that time!

In both cases (Canon vs Nikon), it was the nature of analog film cameras to have the Speeds on the Upper Dial and the Aperture on the Lens itself.

These days, both are done via the various digital modes, one being (M)anual.

Dan also makes a good point to “know your location” and to be able to “adjust quickly”. (#4)

In the various years that I have photographed the Good Neighbor Fireworks, their launch area does seem to be a moving target from year to year!

In any case, enjoy the tips and have a GREAT 4th of July Weekend!!

Images from Media in County Lines Mag!

I am happy to announce that the Folks at County Lines Magazine have published several more of my images in this June’s “Meet Me in Media” article!

Back in April, I spent a chilly morning wandering around Media with Jaimielynn Cooper, as she planned her story for the article. It was like having my own personal tour guide of the town!

When I received the Final PDF Proof of the article, it was also fun to see that I shared image space with Ralph Nardell, as I first learned about him on Flickr and then on Facebook.

The world just seems to get smaller!

Here are some additional images that were taken that April morning.
