Foliage Season Is Over :(

It’s too bad that the most beautiful time of year in New England is also the shortest. Next up, WINTER!

Last of the Summer Garden

Autumn is finally here, our favorite time of the year! Here’s an end of summer assortment of fruits and flowers from our garden. Martina picked everything and styled these shots that will become part of our stock photo portfolio. The look of natural sunlight was created with one diffused flash placed on camera left. The kitchen table added a nice rustic feel.

One Last Photo Shoot in Kraków (Sad Face)

It’s been an amazing 2 years living here in Poland, but on August 31, we move back to Sterling, MA USA. Living in Europe has led to many great photo adventures and also many great friends made along the way.

Yesterday, my photographer friend Jacek and I woke up to catch the sunrise over the Old Town Market Square here in Kraków. We tried to get some cool drone footage over the square, but the batteries were not cooperating and it crashed a couple times. After those mishaps and a bloody finger, we switched to our traditional cameras and tripods.

Especially in the summer the main square, the largest medieval square in Europe, fills up with tourists pretty quick, so it was nice to get there early and make some photos without the crowds. It was really sad being in this beautiful place for the last time, but at least we will have some great memories.

See you in Sterling!

Cyprus – Where History Meets the Sea

Being only a short plane trip from Poland, Cyprus was an destination to cross off the list before we move back to the U.S. It was a great experience to roam around the ancient stone ruins set against the backdrop of bright turquoise water. We spent most of our time alternating time between the sea and pool at the resort and sightseeing around the historic coastal city of Paphos. About 2 hours northeast of Paphos was the interesting city of Nicosia, located on the border of the Greek and Turkish sides of the island. Immediately crossing the border, we were welcomed by the sound of the call to prayer echoing from a nearby minaret. Besides that, it was noticeably quieter and more peaceful, although a bit run-down, on the Turkish side with lots of interesting architecture.

1939 Falcon Miniature Vintage Camera

Falcon Miniature vintage camera photographed by Jeff Baumgart

This Falcon Miniature is the newest addition to my vintage camera collection. It was made in 1939 by the Utility Manufacturing Company in New York. The body is made of Bakelite, and it takes 127 roll film. It came with a 50mm lens with a fixed aperture and fixed focus. The simple spring rotary shutter offers only one speed, 1/25.

It’s nice to also have the original box. Can’t wait to find some 127 film and test it out!

Monochro-Mountains

Black and white winter photography of Tatra mountains in Poland by Jeff Baumgart

There’s no predicting mountain weather, it can change so quickly. The Tatra Mountains near Zakopane, Poland are no exception. What to do when the weather doesn’t cooperate? No need to put the camera away! There are always good shots to be found. Since the cloudy skies and fresh snow cover made the views naturally monochromatic, I decided to work with it and go for a black and white treatment. Not much beats hiking through deep snow in the mountains with a camera and tripod!
