Photography 101: Understanding ISO

Back in the days when film photography predominated, film was manufactured with various sensitivities to light and measured with a standard called “ASA” or “American Standards Association”.

Film sensitivity is refereed to as “film speed” and the methods of determining a film’s speed have evolved over the history of photography. The most familiar standard to any film user in the 70s – 80s was ASA or ANSI which traces its roots back to the 1940s.

The current International Standard for measuring the speed of color negative film is ISO or the International Standard. Gaining film speed has always been a trade off. To create faster films, manufactures have had to make the grains of photosensitive elements larger, thus faster films result in grainier negatives.

In digital photography ISO measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. The same principles apply as in film photography – the lower the number the less sensitive your camera is to light and the finer the “grain”. Higher ISO settings are generally used in darker situations to get faster shutter speeds.

Concord New Hampshire State House Capitol Building

State Capitol – Part of a series of fine art photographs from around the New England state of New Hampshire from the portfolios of photographer Edward M. Fielding – https://edward-fielding.pixels.com/art/new+hampshire

NEW HAMPSHIRE STATE HOUSE

A visit to Concord New Hampshire is not complete without a visit to the impressive New Hampshire State House building and grounds where in 1816 the state settled on the location.

The contest was between Concord, Hopkinton, and Salisbury, the last named town having offered seven thousand dollars for the honor. In the end Concord won, and by 1816 final action had been taken to build there.

Considerable expense was saved the town of Concord by the decision to build the Capitol of granite from what are now the Swenson quarries at the north end of the town, and to have the cutting and shaping and facing of the stones done by the inmates of the prison.

A feature of the new and imposing building thus provided was its huge gold-painted wooden eagle, which was raised to the top of the dome in 1818. Appropriate ceremonies presided over by Governor Plumer were marked by a series of toasts, one of which was, “The American Eagle. May the shadow of his wings protect every acre of our united continent and the lightning of his eye flash terror and defeat through the ranks of our enemies.”

The new building’s actual cost was only approximately $82,000, but it provided adequate quarters of the legislature and committees, the Governor and Council, the Secretary of State, the Treasurer, and the library. Stuart J. Park, the builder, goes down in history as having done an admirable job, and he has a Concord street to the north of the building, Park Street, named in his honor. The first session of the legislature to be held in the new building was in 1819.

The New Hampshire State House, located in Concord at 107 North Main Street, is the state capitol building of New Hampshire. The capitol houses the New Hampshire General Court, Governor and Executive Council. The building was constructed on a block framed by Park Street (named in honor of the architect, Stuart James Park) to the north, Main Street to the east, Capitol Street to the south, and North State Street to the west.

The current statehouse was designed in 1814, and paid for by the City of Concord. The building was built in 1816–1819 by architect Stuart Park.

The building was built in the Greek Revival style with smooth granite blocks. The entrance is covered by a small projecting portico supported by Doric columns. The balcony above is lined with a balustrade separated by Corinthian columns supporting a pediment. Another balustrade lines the edge of the flat roof.

Lyme Congregational Church, Horse Sheds, The Green, Lyme, Grafton County, NH

Lyme Congregational Church, Horse Sheds, The Green, Lyme, Grafton County, NH

Back in the day before cars, people would either walk, ride a horse or take a carriage to town.   In Lyme, New Hampshire, just past Hanover on Route 10, at the far end of the green lays a fine example of old carriage sheds that many churches used feature.

The historic horse sheds behind the Congregational Church have been preserved and remain one of the last example of this structure.  The row of twenty-seven sheds standing today is the longest line of contiguous horse sheds in New England, and possibly in the United States.

Bill Ackerly of Lyme said the sheds were built by his great-great-great grandfather. He estimates his family settled in Lyme in the late 1700s.

The sheds sit on town property, but they are maintained by the Lyme Congregational Church. They rely on private sources of funding for maintenance.

The First Congregational Church was built c. 1810, at which time the horse sheds behind it were also built; these are believed to be the longest such surviving row in the state.

About Lyme, New Hampshire

Lyme is a town along the Connecticut River in Grafton County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 1,716 as of the 2010 census,[1] with an estimated population of 1,680 in 2015.[2] Lyme is home to the Chaffee Natural Conservation Area. The Dartmouth Skiway is in the eastern part of town, near the village of Lyme Center. The Appalachian Trail passes through the town’s heavily wooded eastern end.

stable is a building in which livestock, especially horses, are kept. It most commonly means a building that is divided into separate stalls for individual animals. There are many different types of stables in use today; the American-style barn, for instance, is a large barn with a door at each end and individual stalls inside or free-standing stables with top and bottom-opening doors. The term “stable” is also used to describe a group of animals kept by one owner, regardless of housing or location.

I actually rarely use my cell phone.  Since I work from home, I usually have a Wifi connection to my ASUS Chromebook Flip C302 with Intel Core m3, 12.5-Inch Touchscreen, 64GB storage and 4GB RAM or main computer.

If I’m out and about I’ll have my Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD (Body Only) – Wi-Fi Enabled with me so I use a program called “Grids” to upload images from my computer to Instagram.

Connecticut River Farm Vermont

I often find myself meandering along the Connecticut River that divides New Hampshire and Vermont. New Hampshire owns the river if you must know.  Right up to the banks on the other side.   With it comes the responsibility of paying for all of the bridges.

The boundary issue between Vermont and New Hampshire dates back to King George’s time of rule in the 1700’s. During this time, the land spreading from the Connecticut River westward was known as the New Hampshire Grants.
At that time, New Hampshire regarded the river as its own. New Hampshire officials and residents built bridges spanning the river and maintained them. In the History of New Hampshire, published in 1792, Jeremy Belknap wrote, “from a point near Hinsdale, New Hampshire, up to the forty-fifth degree of latitude, the western bank of that river is the western boundary of New Hampshire and the eastern boundary of Vermont.”  – link

You can drive along on the New Hampshire side via Route 10 or on the Vermont side via Route 5.  Both offer a treasure trove of landscape and scenic photography opportunities.

One day driving along the Connecticut River on Route 5 in I spotted this great scene and just had to pull over, pop on the hazard lights, carefully cross the road, hop the guard rail, fight the tick infested weeds and slippery mud at the bottom of a ravine to find the perfect spot to capture reflections coming off the slow moving water of the Connecticut (the CT River has a series a dams that control its flow and is used for hydro power).

The Connecticut River is the longest river in the New England region of the United States, flowing roughly southward for 406 miles (653 km) through four states. It rises at the U.S. border with Quebec, Canada and discharges at Long Island Sound. Its watershed encompasses five U.S. states and one Canadian province, 11,260 square miles (29,200 km2) via 148 tributaries, 38 of which are major rivers. It produces 70% of Long Island Sound’s fresh water, discharging at 19,600 cubic feet (560 m3) per second.

Time to Get Serious About Your Landscape Photography Gear

The Ultimate Landscape Photography Kit

Life is short.  Air travel, hotels, car rentals, meals, park entrance fees etc are expensive.  So why waste time with cheap junk?

You’ve traveled half way around the world to stand in front of one of the world’s wonders and you pull out some hopelessly out of date camera, hand hold it, snap off a few quick shots with the bus load of Chinese tourists to your right and another bus load of senior citizens to your left.

Enough.  Time to cash in some of those stock options, that inheritance check from dear old Uncle Jim or that winning lottery ticket and get yourself a really kick ass landscape photography kit.

Let’s start with a great tripod.  I love the Vanguard tripods with their fantastic lifetime guarantee.  The beefy carbon fiber models with the wide feet will provide a steady base for what’s to come next.

An easy to use and firm connection between the tripod and camera is important to quickly set up and compose your shot as well as not move at all when taking multiple shots for later stitching.

The incredible new Canon 24mm Tilt Shift lens provides tack sharp landscape images, edge to edge thanks to its over-sized front lens element.  The shifting capabilities allows one take multiple images without moving the camera body for zero distortion.

The shift feature is also great for architectural subjects and the tilt effects are great for throwing the plane of focus across your subject for back to front focus or to purposely throw your foreground and background out of focus for miniature effects.

We top this landscape photography kit off with a monster of a camera.  The
